Beautiful cottage in a very peaceful and tranquil setting, the birds and wildlife are your only neighbours. Extensive gardens to explore and a lovely footpath from the cottage to Llyn Ruck situated at the top of the hill. The views are well worth the climb. Perfect for dogs, secure gardens with lots of space. Definitely hope to return one day.
