The Manor House
The elegant Victorian manor house was built in c. 1865, and has an array of original features including a superb staircase and slate fireplaces. The house is in an excellent position with farreaching views. The principle reception rooms are accessed from the spacious reception hall, including the drawing/dining room with French doors out onto the covered terrace and formal gardens, a library/study with feature fireplace, a breakfast room, a guest cloakroom and a cellar. The kitchen is directly accessed through the breakfast room, off which is the small conservatory/utility room and exterior stores. The master bedroom with en suite bathroom and 3 further large bedrooms and a bathroom are on the second floor, whilst on the third floor are four further good-sized bedrooms and a bathroom.
Converted from two 18th century cottages, The Cottage retains much of its original charm. Accessed through the entrance hall, there is a good-sized kitchen with space for a breakfast table, a spacious oak-beamed sitting room with woodburner set in the original inglenook, and guest cloakroom. The first floor can be accessed by two staircases, the main leading to the landing, the two guest bedrooms, inner hall, the master bedroom and family bathroom, whilst the other flanks the stone inglenook and leads directly to the master bedroom. There is a well planted lawned garden to the front, in which is also found the Workshop.
Off the entrance hall are the two bedrooms, bathroom and utility room. On the first floor is the kitchen, dining room and reception room, with French doors leading out to the balcony, which has exquisite views over the Moelwyn mountain range. Steps from the balcony lead directly down to the established walled garden and patio for al fresco dining and entertaining.
The ground floor accommodation includes a kitchen and sitting room with feature stone fire surround and access out to the rear courtyard, created in a Mediterranean style with carp pond and fountain. On the first floor is the bedroom and bathroom.
The Stables ajoin The Granary and comprise an open plan living/dining room and country kitchen on the ground floor, whilst the bedroom with en suite bathroom is found upstairs.
The Workshop is in the garden of The Cottage, and is an excellent space for either an office, studio, or storage. There is lapsed planning permission for this to be converted to a further holiday let unit.
The properties have been let as self-catering holidays over a number of years and could provide any purchaser with the opportunity to continue this long established and successful business. This unique Estate lends itself to a variety of enterprises, including an adventure centre, retreat, small residential care facility, glamping or stunning studio location.
