The river Gwendraeth Fach fronts the property for some 100m, giving private fishing rights - sea trout and trout are being caught during the season. Dippers and Kingfishers are also regular visitors to the river.
We have a beautiful, quiet garden with plenty of seating areas, plus a summer house that fronts the river - we encourage our guests to enjoy the grounds, and to enjoy the peace and quiet.
We are in a hamlet of just 4 houses and we are the last one - we get no passing traffic and so enjoy complete privacy. The outlook is decidious woodland which houses a mulititude of wildlife.
The annexe essentially sleeps 2 people but a 3rd can be accommodated with the following arrangement. We now provide a travel cot & highchair for small children, but would like to stress that the accommodation is only suitable for 3. We also have a sofa bed, thus accommodating an older child or adult (again 3 people only). We do not charge extra for a child that uses the travel cot (as you will be bringing your own bedlinen), but should the sofa bed be used an extra charge of £30 per stay will be added to cover the extra preparation this would incur. Please advise in your correspondence to us.
The annexe is on the flat, with no steps from car to front door, or indeed inside the property. There are non slip tiles on the floor of the bathroom. The bathroom is not fitted with aids for disability.
