Award winning medieval cottage and forge. The Smithy has beamed pitched ceilings, floors of polished wood and flagstones, with under floor heating. Comfortable sofas and open hearths enhance this lovingly and imaginatively restored house. The Smithy was a Weaver and Dryers Mill until the 19 th Century, from then it became Walter Savage Landor’s forge. The property was the winner of the Traditional/Period Living Renovation Award.
The cottage has 3 bedrooms and sleeps 6 plus a cot. Entrance is into a country kitchen/diner equipped with microwave/conventional oven, gas hob, fridge, freezer, refectory table and chairs, large dresser and window overlooking the garden. The sitting room is delightful, both elegant and cosy and has a beautiful bottle-kiln chimney, with a large open hearth. No TV, by visitors’ choice, but a good selection of games and books and a beautiful piano (for use by pianists only please). Stairs from this room lead to the first floor, the bedrooms are attractively furnished, the furnishings and linen enhance the character of the bedrooms. There are two twin rooms (one with brass beds) and one double bedroom with washbasin. Bedding and linen are provided. Bathroom and toilet. The cottage, set in one acre, has a very attractive cottage/wildlife garden with several seating areas, one by the river, which skirts the paddock, another under a covered patio. There is a small stretch of trout fishing on the river Honddu and plenty of space for children to play, boules pitch and barbecue. A haven for artists and ornithologists (with over 33 species sighted in the garden).
The owners live in the attached Forge, but in no way encroach on the privacy of the cottage or it’s gardens and will willingly baby sit.
Fuel oil central heating inclusive. Sorry no pets.
