Enter from the attractive farm courtyard, sheltered by a Canadian Maple Tree, into the hall and stairway.
From here, tongue and groove latch door leads into the dining room with its stable door onto the communal garden from where you have the luxury of a panoramic view of the Upper Dee Valley and the RIver Dee itself.
Walk through into the kitchen where you will find everything you might need for an easy holiday to include dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, electric hob and oven, that is if you intend to do any cooking.
If you don't , there's an excellent pub within half a mile and a Michelin starred restaurant within 2 miles of the farm.
Each room has its own 'wow' factor and the sitting room is no exception.Upstairs you will find 2 delightful bedrooms to include one bedroom with king size bed and one twin room which could also be arranged as one superking bed.Both bedrooms have yet another glorious view of the Upper Dee Valley.
The contemporary style bathroom has a separate power shower and lies between the 2 bedrooms.What could be more convenient ? You could even have a candlelit bath - all on the house of course.
Another accolode is that Y Sgubor has been highly rated 5* by Visit Wales.
Although the cottage has 2 bedrooms, there is a 4' sofa bed in the sitting room which accommodates 2 more people taking the total to 4 +2.
The twin room can also be converted to a 3 bedded room subjec t to the availabiltiy of a spare single bed.

Whilst the property has 2 bedrooms which ordinarily sleep 4, there is plenty of room in the cottage for 6 people if the additional guests are happy to use a sofa bed in the sitting room. No one would have to go through the sitting room to get to either the kitchen or the dining room so privacy doesn't become an issue.

Daily, there is an enormous variety of birds jostling for supremacy. We have a particularly well fed robin redbreast who enjoys any food left out for him on the maintenance shed!
