The Cottage

The Cottage

The cottage was built in 1872, part of a small terrace to house the lead quarrymen at Hendre Ddu slate mine and their families. Only 2 of the original 6 cottages remain in a peaceful hidden valley that is virtually traffic free with no light pollution.

Please note the cottage is reached via private gravelled forestry roads for the last 2 miles of the journey.

It sleeps up to 6 in very comfy beds, has full central heating and a woodburner (basket of logs provided) We provide all linens including 100% cotton bedlinen, towels and teatowels.

Welcome pack included with tea, coffee, milk and other good things as available.
