Things are moving along at the new cottage now, which by the way, we think is going to be named Bwthyn Ger Afon which means Riverplace Cottage. The upstairs bedroom has been gutted ready for a re-wire and some plastering work. It's going to be a really spacious bedroom with kingsize bed, lush soft furnishings and the fireplace will be fitted once it has been sand blasted and painted and brought back to it's former glory. We came by this fireplace last year and just knew it would come in handy one day!!

We are so excited about our newest cottage, we exchanged contracts and completed yesterday and are really looking forward to renovating the little place. It has been neglected over the years and needs quite a bit doing to it to get it up to the finish and standard we aim for with all our other cottages. As things move along we will, of course, keep you up to date with pictures etc. It's going to be a really beautiful 1 bed cottage by the time we have finished with it, and are really looking forward to doing the place up. Watch this space...............

The potted plant was left at Hen Aelwyd yr Urdd as a little thank you from Miss Cartwright, her 2nd visit, and the biscuits where left with a thank you card at Bwthyn Glan yr Afon. It's really nice to know that our guests really appreciate all our attention to detail and the little touches. Makes all our efforts and hardwork worth while.
