This cottage, like all the others at Bryn Melyn Farm, have been given an extremely high 5* accreditation by Visit Wales.

Upstairs, there are 2 delightful bedrooms and a large bathroom off a very spacious landing.
The double bedroom is both cosy and romantic whereas the twin bedroom [which can also be converted to a superking bedroom] is light and airy. Sunlight floods into this upstairs area in the daytime with its combination of roof windows and box windows where one could take in the glorious views.One is spoilt for space in the bathroom with its separate power shower.
You could either choose to spend time at Bryn Melyn farm itself, with its 12 acres at your disposal, including woodland area with pond, tennis court, games room and private fishing, or of course, you could participate in the abundant local activities from white water rafting and mountain biking to walking and horse riding.
