Cottage | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
The largest of the Foel Ferry Cottages on the banks of the Menai Straits, Anglesey.
Felin y Foel was originally a mill, from the outside the upstairs window was put in to hide the line of the hoist. This and the over engineered woodwork in the lounge, the sky light in the roof apex and the unconventional access to the two upper rooms (now a tight spiral staircase- mind your head!) all echo its past use. There is an underground stream running along the back of the property which was once accessible using a well ( capped by concrete after someone fell down it).
