It's the little things that make the difference don't you think? The Aaron jumper clad teddy bear with his ever so cheeky face. The decorative plates bought at that antiques fair last summer. And the flowers, freshly cut and arranged in preparation for your arrival. Of course the location is perfect, all the facilities are there and everything is clean and tidy. But it's the small details that give Stabal that homely feel that I like so much.
The cosy lounge has one of those invitingly plump sofas as well as a TV and sky box. The adjoining kitchen is well equipped with the usual oven, microwave, toaster, kettle etc. The ground floor master bedroom has a king size bed below a a charming Georgian type window and, like the rest of the cottage, is refreshingly free of chintz. There's also a small child's bedroom suitable for younger children. The bathroom has a shower over bath arrangement and is, again, spotlessly clean.

‘Stabal’ sits between the two villages of Dyffryn and Talybont. The property is part of a converted row of 4 barns. There’s a beautifully kept garden area which in turn is surrounded by fields full of ubiquitous welsh sheep. Dyffryn has a couple of pubs serving food. There’s also a well stocked grocery store, friendly butchers, garage and post office in the village. Talabont is a little smaller but also has a pub and of course the famous ‘Tony’s’ Italian restaurant.
One of the best reasons to visit Stabal is the sandy beach just a short 500m away. This part of the welsh coastline is the favoured spot of many who are 'in the know' with miles of un-spoilt sandy beach stretching out in both directions. And when you eventually tire of building sandcastles there is of course the adventure mountain playground of Snowdonia right on your doorstep. So if you’re looking for a peaceful break away from all the hustle and bustle or a base for an action packed adventure holiday, I can strongly recommend Stabal.
