This traditional Welsh holiday let is full of character. It’s nearly 200 years old and still retains original features such as exposed beams, quarry tiled floors and low doorways. It has that “away from it all” feel, yet it is located within easy walking distance of a farm shop, a highly rated bistro and a hotel pub which brews it’s own real ale on the premises!
Velvet Cottage features:
The cottage garden features a private sunbathing/barbecue terrace at the rear of the property, covered garden pond, bird table, wild flower beds and heather bushes. A high dividing hedge and the cottage’s position above a quiet lane ensure maximum privacy and relaxation.
There is evidence of a cottage being on the site since 1606. Velvet Cottage itself was built about two hundred years ago and has been owned by the present family since 1920. It's position on Abbey Terrace affords magnificent views out across Valle Crucis (Valley of the Cross) towards the Horseshoe Pass in the distance. The cottage was built with local slatestone and the thick walls offer insulation in the Winter and welcome coolness in the height of Summer.
The cottage is an ideal holiday destination at any time of year. On cooler Spring mornings, the Superking bed will keep you warm and cosy! In warmer weather, the terrace in front of the cottage is great for al fresco dining, whilst the private terrace at the back of the cottage can be used for sun-bathing (two sunbeds are provided) or for a barbecue (equipment provided). Freeview, a DVD Player and unlimited wireless broadband are included.
The downstairs kitchen and lounge room floors are covered in the original terracotta quarry tiling. Over the years the floor has been protected by carpet coverage and as a result it is in immaculate condition. The living room ceiling features the original wooden beams, painted black in traditional Welsh style.
There are many options for eating and drinking either locally or in Llangollen itself.
