Velvet Cottage features:
In the cottage garden can be found a private sunbathing & barbecue terrace at the rear of the property, covered garden pond, bird table, flower beds and heather bushes. A high dividing hedge and the cottage’s position above a quiet lane ensure maximum privacy and relaxation. The offroad parking bay has space for one family size car. A second car can be parked at the bottom of the lane by the telephone box or at Abbey Farm caravan park (towards Valle Crucis Abbey, five minutes walk away). Please don't park on the lane in front of Velvet Cottage as it can obstruct the passage of large vehicles.
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 or for a barbecue (equipment provided).
