The cottage is several hundred years old and is one half of a traditional Welsh long-house. One can see how the central circular fireplace has been divided in two, probably a hundred years ago or more. Both the lounge and front bedroom have lots of exposed beams and many of the walls downstairs are natural local stone. The cottage is wonderfully romantic for a couple and quite magical for children and therefore also ideally suited for families. Great for walkers and cyclists. The property is full of character with lots of period features. Charming living room with exposed beams and wood burning stove. Bright kitchen, spacious garden and terrace with BBQ. Fitted with all mod cons such as individually adjustable heating in all rooms, DVD player, Sky TV, unlimited superfast internet, fully equipped kitchen, washing machine etc. Linen, towels, firewood, wifi, guidebooks, all included. Relax and explore beautiful countryside! The property is located on a single track no-through road and on the edge of the attractive and thriving market town of Kington, a 'Border Town' in the Welsh Marches. It's only 10 minutes walk to local shops, deli, tourist info, post office, takeaways, restaurants, pubs etc. The cottage is named after Blodeuwedd (meaning 'Flower Face'), a beautiful woman who was cursed and turned into an owl in one of the stories belonging to the Mabinogion, a famous collection of old Welsh legends. The main bedroom is very romantic. It has exposed wooden beams and a beautiful four-poster bed with comfy mattress. We provide high quality white linen, warm duvets and plenty of pillows. Wardrobe and lots of drawer space. This is an old cottage and the rooms are not huge, but they work as proper double bed-rooms just fine and feel really cosy and special. They are both romantic and the sort of bedrooms kids love. If a fifth person is staying we provide a fold-down bed, which can be put into one of the bedrooms or the lounge. It comes with a single duvet. Please note that for space reasons the bed may have to be folded away during the day. Use of local guide books and maps are complimentary during your stay.
