Romantic Self-Catering Holiday Cottage For Two

Hen Ffermdy - sleeps 2 (plus infant)


Hen Ffermdy is the perfect home from home romantic hideaway; a couple's retreat for honeymoons, romantic breaks or just to escape to the country. This luxury self-catering eco holiday cottage is a former stone farmhouse, converted into a comfortable and spacious detached two-person cottage with mezzanine en-suite bedroom and wood flooring throughout.

It has an enclosed garden with a small lawn, patio with table, chairs and barbecue, and bird feeders.

Inside, there is a spacious open plan sitting room/dining room featuring original stone walls, furnished with reclaimed furniture of character, and with wood burning stove and Smart TV (with Freesat and DVD/CD player).

There are plenty of books, CDs and DVDs to keep you entertained, as well as a few games and jigsaws. There is a telescope and star guide for amateur astronomers. For added nostalgia, there is a working 1950s radiogram complete with LP collection (but feel free to bring your own favourite vinyl records for a spin).

"Hen Ffermdy – probably the best self-catering we have had considering the lovely décor and all those little extra touches – couldn’t fault it. Love to return."

Kerina & Derek, Bristol

"We had a magical few days away in an idyllic, romantic retreat – walking the Welsh hills, playing music, dancing, drinking wine, watching movies, playing Scrabble… Our new favourite place. We will definitely be back.”

" We both love the cottage and the many ways in which you have put thought, care and pleasing aesthetics into it. We drank in the beauty of Banceithin in new ways, visiting the sunset bench, the fire pit and the tree house. We made the vinyl collection the soundtrack for our stay – some great records, much enjoyed!”

Ben & Kirat, Brighton

The well equipped contemporary fitted kitchen has a built-in microwave and separate oven, ceramic hob, fridge with small freezer box, toaster, kettle and digital radio. For coffee lovers, both a stove top espresso maker and a cafetiere are provided.

The downstairs cloakroom has a toilet and washbasin.

A spiral staircase leads to the mezzanine bedroom with king-size platform bed and en-suite shower room and toilet.

Organic and Fair Trade bed linen and towels are provided (one hand towel and one shower towel per person). A vintage Welsh wool blanket and hot water bottle from Jane Beck Welsh Blankets will keep you extra cosy with toasty toes on winter nights.
