All its excellent facilities including pubs, shops, restaurants and art galleries are all on your doorstep, as well as a play ground that children will enjoy. The famous Cathedral and Bishops Palace are well worth a visit.
The pretty flagged front garden of Willow Cottage makes a lovely sunny spot to relax and watch the world go by. This quirky cottage is full of retained original features yet with all modern conveniences, comfortably furnished in a stylish mix of contemporary and reclaimed antique pieces. The cosy sitting room with beams, gnarled timbers and exposed stone work has a super corner unit and extended armchair perfect for relaxing around the wood burning stove. Narrow open-tread stairs lead up to the split-level landing, the two double bedrooms with large windows and vaulted ceilings have a light and airy feel, while the twin bedroom looks to the back over the city.
The compact fitted, kitchen leads through to a useful utility area and out to the enclosed landscaped, rear garden with 2 steps to a paved patio. Perfect for enjoying an alfresco meal on a summer's evening with the Bramblecrest modular 'L' shaped garden dining furniture and table. Or why not have a leisurely lunch there too on a sunny day, shaded by the Gloucester side post parasol. The hot tub* in this sheltered spot is guaranteed to provide hours of relaxation. If you can tear yourself away from the hot tub, the nearest beach of Caerfai is less than a 1 mile walk away or there are a choice of 3 others nearby to explore. Whitesands beach is officially one of the best beaches in the world and is popular with families, as well as surfers both professionals and beginners alike.
