Llan is a perfect retreat, set in a tranquil setting within a short drive of beautiful Lake Vyrnwy. A fabulous place to relax and unwind from the stresses and pressures of daily life. Lovingly and tastefully restored by its current owners, it has a wealth of traditional features including wooden beams, oak and slate floors, a large inglenook with wood burner, a well equipped kitchen, modern conveniences and oil fired central heating. There is Wi-Fi, TV and a DVD player but for those preferring to make their own entertainment, a wide selection of books and board games.
The property has a large enclosed garden at the rear with a wild life pond and views of the surrounding fields and hills. There are wonderful hillside walks directly from the cottage and plenty of places to visit in the local area including Lake Vyrnwy and the Vyrnwy Falls, the RSPB Bird Reserve, Snowdonia National Park, the renowned Llanrhaeadr Falls, Bala Lake and the Berwyn Mountains.
For the adventurous there are numerous outdoor pursuits available nearby and further afield, including mountain biking, cycling, sailing, kayaking, horse riding, quad biking and white water rafting. Not for the faint-hearted there is the Revolution Bike Park on the door step at Llangynog (10 minute drive ) and Zip World Velocity, Zip World Titan, Bounce Below and Zip World Caverns at Blaenau Ffestiniog and Zip World Fforest at Betws-y-Coed (all within an hour away).
For those in search of history, within an hour's drive there are four National Trust properties, Chirk Castle, Erddig, Powis Castle and Attingham Park, and the Roman City of Chester and medieval town of Shrewsbury. For those wanting to spend a day by the sea, the beaches and seaside town of Barmouth can be reached in just over an hour and beyond that you have the lovely seaside resorts of Aberdovey and the Lleyn Peninsula. Port Meirion, an Italianate village, is well worth a visit.
There is a well stocked village shop within 3 miles of the cottage and larger shops and butchers in Llanrhaeadr-ym-Mochant (5 miles) and Llanfyllin (9 miles). Large mainstream supermarkets can be found in Oswestry and Welshpool (both approximately 20 miles).
The Lake Vyrnwy Hotel (a 10 minute drive) has a spa, restaurant, bistro and dog friendly pub, as well as spectacular views of the lake and the surrounding countryside. There are a number of pubs serving food within 5 miles of the cottage.
Young children must be closely supervised in the garden as there is unrestricted access to the pond.
