Derwen is a romantic one bedroom cottage near the beach in the seaside town of Fairbourne. This traditional detached stone cottage has been beautifully renovated into a very elegant space yet remains homely which will make it a very appealing bolt hole for those looking for a luxury break.
Entering through the hand crafted oak stable door brings you into an open plan sitting room and dining area with an impressive oak spiral staircase up to the first floor. The large wood burner takes centre stage in this room which gives warmth to the minimal, yet very stylish interior. Slate floors, oak beams, large sofa and lovely furniture pieces all work towards giving this space a very comfortable feel; the tide clock will no doubt come in handy when planning your beach walks and the surround sound system is going to turn those DVD evenings into more of a cinema experience!
The galley kitchen at the end of the house has everything you will need and expect, including hob, oven, dishwasher etc along with a waterfilter tap. The finish is in-keeping with the rest of the cottage; modern and minimal with a homely feel.
Up the spiral staircase takes us to a beautiful bedroom with apex ceiling, creating a lovely sense of space and light. The arched doorway to the bathroom adds to the charm of this room. Simple oak furniture and bed linen all work well together to create a very calming space. The two large wadrobes provode plenty of storage space and the remote controlled velux windows and blackout blinds will certainly help you get a good nights sleep.
The en-suite bathroom has a large walk in digital rain shower; modern fittings combined with oak fixtures again fit with the rest of the house.
The garden, home to exotic plants like jasmine, passion flowers, palms and banana plants is a lovely place to relax when taking in the evening sun with a drink on the patio.
