The Barn Cottage
Cosy Comfort! (Graded 3*)
Pure Rustic Charm
A tasteful barn-conversion, created from a stone building dating back to the seventeenth century. A wealth of charm awaits you, original beams, low ceilings(!), a log-burning stove, full central heating, tasteful decor and soft furnishings. A real home-from-home.
The relaxing lounge is very comfortably & tastefully furnished and has a charming wood-burning stove that will warm even the coldest of evenings. A radio/CD player, TV, DVD-player, Video-player, numerous books of all varieties, and a good choice of board games are provided for your leisure and entertainment. WiFi is also available for those with laptop computers.
The open-plan kitchen/dining area is well equipped to make catering during your holiday as easy as possible. There are an electric oven and hob, fridge with small freezer compartment, a microwave oven, toaster and kettle as standard equipment.
A shower room and toilet is also located on the ground floor.
A charming spiral staircase leads to the two bedrooms; one double and one twin. Warm and comfortable - affording a perfect restful sleep to weary guests after an exhilarating day’s riding!
We provide all bed linen, towels, logs for the fire. We also have a brand new laundry room for communal use.
Please note that access to Gilfach Farm is down (and up) a rather steep track, thus may not be suitable for particularly low-slung vehicles! The uneven nature of the terrain around Gilfach, and the spiral staircase within the Cottage, may present a difficulty to those with restricted mobility. Should you have any concerns regarding these matters, please contact us.

Pets are Welcome
We are happy to accommodate well behaved, friendly pets (Max. two). We do require you to ensure your pet is clean before entering the cottage; does not sit on any of the furniture; does not chew any of the fittings(!); and are not left unattended in the Cottage if they are not happy when left alone. We also require that all dogs are kept on a lead when around the horse yard and are not allowed to worry our horses or neighbouring livestock.
We at Gilfach are very aware of the fragility of the natural habitat that we have the honour of living in. We try to do our bit by reducing waste; being economic with electricity and fuel; recycling waste where possible; keeping windows and doors shut when cold to preserve heat and keeping the amount of washing to a reasonable minimum. We also request that clients do not smoke within the Cottage.
