Description

Enjoying glorious panoramic countryside views in a wonderfully secluded rural location, this charming 200-year old detached, forestry cottage is approached by a private woodland track through the Clocaenog Forest. The cottage is surrounded by 23-acres of unspoilt and natural countryside encompassing woodlands, sloping drops and a natural unfenced wildlife pond. This really is a unique location and is a delightfully appointed haven for bird watchers, nature lovers and walkers alike. The cottage enjoys a beautifully sunny enclosed front garden perfect for summer barbecues and taking in the view. The first floor living room with its wood burner also makes the most of the views and is perfect for cosy winter evenings.
Situated in a beautiful unspoilt location in rural Wales, it is perfect for exploring the many historic market towns the area has to offer. Also close by is the dramatic mountain scenery of the Snowdonia National Park and it is an easy day trip to the coast at Conwy, with its magnificent castle. Beach 30 miles. Shop 5 miles, pub and restaurant 3 miles.
