The holiday atmosphere at Beater's Cottage in Maerdy, North Wales, starts as soon as you reach it to find a babbling trout river running by the front door (permits available). The stone detached Holiday Cottage is situated on a 140-acre sheep farm, and has been carefully restored to retain its rural character. There are 4 bedrooms, sleeping 8, just the right size for a family, or friends who want to celebrate a special event. The dining-room leads into a sitting-room, complete with a wood-burning stove in an inglenook hearth, welcoming sofas and delightful views of the river.
An original Rayburn range and exposed ceiling beams give the kitchen a warm welcoming look, together with all the necessary 21st century electrical equipment. Retaining that Holiday Cottage's rural look, there is original oak-flooring upstairs, where one bedroom has a four-poster bed and the other, a king-size bed. A family bathroom is on each floor.
A rear enclosed courtyard has a shared heated indoor swimming pool (1.2 to 1.8 metres in depth) and an 8-person sauna (see Notes); and a table-tennis table in the garage, together with a shared outdoor hard tennis court (in the manor gardens) will ensure plenty of exercise. This will be enhanced by walking the miles of footpaths that cross the estate, and after those walks and a few lengths in the swimming pool, you will be ready to visit the 17th century coaching inn just across the road for a delightful supper.

A FANTASTIC COTTAGE by Erica Page, Crawley, November 2016 on November 28th 2016
The cottage that we stayed in was absolutely fantastic!!! 4 lovely bedrooms with very comfy beds, great log burner, swimming pool and sauna. Lovely and quiet with nearest town 5minutes away. Snowdon and Zipworld within 40minutes drive. Would love to return.
