We had a different room, but still at the front. The view of the Moel Wynns? Is stunning. The room and en suite are of a very generous size. Bob's...

We had a super couple of days staying at this friendly and accommodating country house. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts Bob and Vicky. The stay was tailor made for our requirements and so we were able to enjoy some superb walks taking in the wonderful mountainous scenery followed by a relaxing evening meal.
