Property code: 52509

One of three 19th century courtyard buildings, set in 9 acres, located between Corwen and Betws-y-Coed in the heart of North Wales. Enjoy a romantic retreat with your own private hot tub and embrace the culture.

A beautiful property in an idyllic village location perfect to relax, unwind and explore Snowdonia National Park, dramatic countryside, historic towns and pretty villages in North Wales. Nearby Bala boasts Wales's largest natural lake, narrow gauge railway, National White Water Centre and a range of restaurants and shops. Nearby Betws-y-Coed with historic bridges, waterfalls, river pools and hill top lakes, is also full of outdoor activity and craft shops, galleries and public houses. Enjoy walking, climbing, kayaking, sailing and fishing in breath-taking scenery. Visit historic towns of Ruthin and Denbigh, have a day trip to Barmouth for fabulous beaches or take the challenges of GYG karting, Snowdonia's Cader Idris, Surf Snowdonia and the Zip World Caverns. This really is an all year round destination.

The former stables, with full aspect window, is full of interesting objects, stylish features and stunning rural views. The open plan kitchen/diner is welcoming and cosy with the sofa to cuddle up on and watch TV or a DVD, sink into the armchair in front of the fire with a good book, or just admire the Welsh countryside. If you decide to eat in the well-equipped kitchen area, with breakfast bar, it has all you need to prepare a meal from the electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and dishwasher to all the thoughtful little extras creating a lovely space to cook in. Meander up the stairs to the luxurious double bed with freshly laundered linen, soft dressing gowns and towels. The stylish en-suite has a large shower and separate WC.

Up the private drive, past the owners home, the property nestles on the gravelled courtyard with superb countryside views. Across the courtyard, you can enjoy alfresco dining in the private patio area with table, chairs and charcoal BBQ with lovely views. There are also a number of shared spaces to sit and relax in the nine acres of grounds. Maybe picnic by the standing stones or at the top of the garden near the trees. If you are bringing your bike there is lockable storage and an outside tap with hose available. Plenty of outside space for your canoe or kayak. The shared, spacious, vaulted ceiling games barn is also accessible from the courtyard and offers a wide range of fun activities to enjoy, including Free View with large wall projection, Nintendo Wii, darts, table tennis, slate bed pool table and high quality hi-fi system.  Ample private parking on site, within walking distance to the property. Please note that the path leading from the car park is quite steep.

The owners have also wilded seven acres of the grounds to make a small sanctuary for wildlife with the creation of a large natural lake, new copses and wildflower meadows. Guests are welcome to walk around the lake but swimming and fishing are prohibited, but a wander through the wildflower meadow on a summer's evening is a real nature lovers treat.

Location

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

Eastbourne is a bustling seaside resort on the south coast of England. It has been a popular British holiday destination since Victorian times. The town’s attractive pier and promenade is still a major draw for visitors in search of a traditional seaside experience – you can enjoy a long, level stroll along the sea front whilst enjoying an ice cream or some fish and chips. The pebble beach is a good place to park a deckchair and take in the sun, or paddle in the sea. Great for family breaks and as a romantic getaway, the town has much to offer all visitors. The South Downs Way starts in town and extends 100 miles eastwards to Winchester – one of the first stops on the National Trail are the imposing chalk cliffs of the iconic Beachy Head, a few miles to the east of town. Eastbourne is a big hit with train enthusiasts as it’s home to the Spa Valley Railway and the Miniature Steam Railway. Historians may like Redoubt Fort and The Observatory Science Museum (in nearby Herstmonceux). For all-weather attractions for children why not investigate Fort Fun or the indoor Motcombe Swimming Pool? Further afield, and within a one-hour drive to the west is Brighton, with its own pier, wonderful array of shops and eateries. To the west is Bexhill-on-Sea with its impressive art gallery, the De La Warr Pavillion, and long seafront. Just beyond is the old fishing town of Hastings with its new award-winning designer pier, ancient castle and fishing shanty town.
