The village shop and pub are only five minutes walk a further five minutes stroll through the pretty hamlet of Llansantffraed takes you to the villages pebble beach, and a further twenty minutes walk (or two minutes drive!) brings you to the sandy expanse of nearby Llanrhystud beach.
Tastefully-furnished and equipped to a high standard, and with the luxury of underfloor heating and log burner for winter comfort, Glyn Peris Cottage offers a comfortable and relaxing holiday base for both winter and summer breaks. Electricity, OFCH, and linen are included. The sleeping accommodation upstairs includes one double bedroom (with further space for cot or single bed), plus a very small bedroom. The small bedroom is most suitable for children in bunk beds, but can sleep adults in single or double bed (this latter arrangement is cosy but tight!).

Fully-equipped with all essentials for a relaxing holiday, including microwave and dishwasher, garden furniture, well-thumbed paperbacks, toys and infant facilities, the cottage has been converted from an old barn and coach house that sits in the grounds of the owners house, set amidst a small-holding complete with sheep, chickens and ancient Shetland pony.
