Wonderful farm setting
Brook and Apple Tree Cottage are situated on Cwmcamlais Farm. A sheep farm of some 210 acres, Cwmcamlais is a paradise for children. Younger children will enjoy the enclosed play area near the barn, whilst older kids will love to explore the the surrounding woodland and river than runs nearby. If you are lucky enough to visit during lambing season, speak to the owners to organise a tour of the lambing sheds. In addition to the farm animals, this area is packed full of wildlife. The owners are happy to provide packed lunches, so why not pull on your wellies and head out across the fields or through the woodland where Red Kite and Buzzards nest and picnic next to the river?
Flexible accommodation for up to 12 people
Apple Tree and Brook Cottage together form what was originally an 18th century barn. Both properties were converted at the same time and the owners thoughtfully ensured maximum flexibility for both cottages. An inter-linking double internal door can be unlocked as required, enabling the two cottages to be used as one very spacious 6 bedroomed home. Although both Brook Cottage and Apple Tree work equally well separately please note that the drying facilities, boot room and games room are all shared.
Spacious games room
Possibly the icing on the cake for these cottages is the fabulous games room. With it's pool table, dart board, air hockey, pin ball machine and table tennis facilities this spacious room will keep everyone entertained on wet days. Comfy sofas and a huge ordinance survey map make this a great space for relaxing and planning your next walking adventure.
The owners of Cwmcamlais Farm have gone out of the their way to ensure that both Brook and Apple Tree Cottage are as child-friendly as possible. Stair-gates, cots, highchairs and baby monitors are all available and a large trunk full of toys, books and games are provided for guests use. A play area with swing set and slide sits within sight of the barn, and the farm surroundings or the games room provide plenty of entertainment come rain or shine.
