The property

Gazing out upon the idyllic waters of Lake Vyrnwy in Powys, the charming, one-bedroom holiday cottage of Hen Blaid awaits.

Stone-fronted, with off-road parking for one car, a gravelled outdoor seating area with stunning lake views, and a collection of well-presented interiors featuring characterful exposed beams, this wonderful home welcomes a couple, and their two well-behaved dogs, for a relaxing, fuss-free getaway to the heart of the Welsh countryside.

Park up, unpack, and make yourself comfortable in your delightful new dwelling, where you and your loved one can get to work rustling up a delicious, home-cooked dinner whilst you soak in gorgeous lake views from the window in the fully-equipped, bespoke kitchen, which you can savour at the dining table before you sit back to enjoy a film or two on the wall-mounted Smart TV in the sitting area.

When sleep calls, head upstairs to refresh with a rejuvenating shower on your way to finally settling in for a much-needed rest in the plush double bedroom.

Make memories to last a lifetime in Wales when you book a stay at Hen Blaid.

Lake Vyrnwy Cottages

Resting on the banks of the serene Lake Vyrnwy in Powys, North Wales, you will find the superb collection of holiday homes belonging to the Lake Vyrnwy Cottages. A trio of stone-built properties set within the same barn conversion, these cottages boast one off-road parking space per property, an outdoor seating area that enjoys breath-taking countryside and lake views - perfect for alfresco wining and dining, along with immaculate, bespoke, hand-crafted interiors carefully and lovingly designed by the owner's son, who is a carpenter by trade. Inside, you'll find fully-equipped, contemporary kitchens, living/sitting rooms complete with Smart TVs and plush seating, and bedrooms with accompanying en-suites, with some enjoying views of Lake Vyrnwy itself. The surroundings of the properties enjoy great access to iconic locations and landmarks such as the Giants of Vyrnwy Trail, the RSPB Llyn Vyrnwy, Dyfnant Forest, Rhiwagor Waterfall, and the mountain peak of Aran Fawddwy. During your stay, you can head to the nearby Dafarn Newydd: Village Stores, Takeaway & Fuel Station, which is just a short drive along the lake, whilst a delicious meal can be savoured at the Lake Vyrnwy Hotel and Spa or further afield at Goat Inn or The Hand Inn, both of which serve up traditional pub fare. For a full day out, jump in the car and explore the many wonders and attractions of the Eryri National Park, including King Arthur's Labyrinth, the viewpoint at Cwm Cynfal, Bala Lake Railway, the waterfall and gorge of Rhaeadr Y Graig Lwyd, and the Llanfair Slate Caverns. Whatever you choose to do during your next visit to North Wales, make sure you do it from the brilliant base of the Lake Vyrnwy Cottages.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
