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 forestry roads, the last part of the route is not tarmacked and the driveway to the cottage is fairly steep with a few bends.

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
