Property description

Derwen Cottage is an extremely large yet cosy property, perfectly suited for family and friends to visit South Wales for a holiday or special event. Whilst it is close to Cardiff it is ideally located in a rural village next to the village pub perfect for a quiet night after a busy day exploring the area.

Although this house is perfect for a larger group of up to twelve people in total, it can be subdivided to allow flexibility to accommodate smaller groups with an appropriate discount.

The property has the added advantage of a private gate from the garden to the excellent village pub next door.

The total property comprises 3 double bedrooms (2 upstairs and one en suite downstairs), one twin bedroom upstairs, four sofabeds, two further family bathrooms, two living/dining rooms (the main one is 26 x 20 feet) and a snug, a fully fitted kitchen and a separate kitchenette.

Gas central heating with additional heating from a wood burner in the sitting room. Electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer, dishwasher, 3 x TVs (2 with Freeview including 1 with full Sky package), 3 x DVDs, CD/radio, free WiFi, selection of books, games and DVDs available. Fuel, power and starter pack for wood burner included in rent. Bed linen and towels also included in rent. 2 travel cots, highchairs and baby baths are available on request.

The property is very large but still has that cosy and welcoming feel.

The property has it's own private patio area and parking facilities for three (possibly four) cars. Note - there is a BBQ available but we do not provide a gas BBQ because of health and safety concerns. Access to the pub next door is via a private gate at the front of this property, which is also used by the owners.

It is the perfect location for the larger family or group holiday. If you do not believe us then have a look at our reviews!

Please contact us for a quote. It would be useful if you could provide as much detail regarding the visit as possible especially where larger groups are involved. We will consider enquiries from sensible hen and stag groups between 1st October and 30th April only. We have a special two night tariff for these weekends and will be subject to the receipt of a refundable security deposit to cover both noise nuisance and property damage in excess of normal wear and tear.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We are a local couple that are fortunate to live next door to our holiday cottage and so are fully aware of the perfect location of the property. It has only since we bought the house that we have realised just what is available to visitors to the local area and why so many people book with us. When you grow up in an area sometimes you do not see what is right in front of you! We put a lot of energy and effort into ensuring that our guests enjoy the experience of staying at our property from initial contact right through to the end of their stay. We are on hand to assist but not interfere and queries are answered as quickly as possible. Our philosophy is straightforward - create a place that we would love to stay ourselves. And we believe we have succeeded as our reviews will confirm!
