Set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty the hamlet of Tafarn y Gelin is virtually within sight of the Loggerheads Country Park and nestling in the lee of Moel Famau, we find this little gem.
At the end of a small terrace, this compact and beautifully presented one bedroom home is an ideal first home, retirement home, an investment opportunity or a perfect holiday let,. It's so cute it feels as if it should have been written by Beatrix Potter. From the trellis beside the door supporting the flowers of your choice to the huge stone fireplace with its comforting log burner, it is every cliché you can think of and yet such is its charm you do not feel cynical in any way.
The home’s magic spell enfolds you as you open the wooden gate and walk past the decorative gravel front garden to the wood effect brown UPVC front door with the previously mentioned trellis alongside. Opening this door allows us into the front facing lounge. This has a laminate floor of the sort of quality that fools you into believing it is real wood and this, coupled with the beamed ceiling gives a delightfully warm and welcoming feeling. The wall to the right is formed of bare stonework and features a truly massive chimney breast in its centre. The only thing missing is a fat, bearded bloke in a red suit shouldering a large sack while dusting soot from his sleeves.
The fireplace also holds a real log burning stove which, once it has warmed the fabric of the massively thick walls will keep you snug on the bitterest of winter nights. Beside the fire, there remains sufficient space for a stack of logs with which to feed the beast, avoiding the need to move outside and get cold until morning. As if it were needed, supplementary heat is provided by an electric storage heater, something which is duplicated in the upstairs bedroom. Although once the fire is lit these prove largely superfluous, something which is borne out by the electricity bills.
A door at the rear of the lounge allows us into the kitchen, where the fairy tale house analogy returns. Firstly the door itself requires someone of average height (me, from bitter experience…) to duck when entering and the Lilliputian feel continues inside. Small it may be but it is perfectly formed and manages to fit in all the necessities of modern life, from the tall fridge/freezer in the gap beneath the stairs, to the automatic washing machine under the work tops, it is all here.
The cottage theme is continued by the attractive slate covered floor, before we climb two steps up to the undersized back door. This is not the disadvantage it initially appears, as stepping up towards it automatically lowers your head, preventing any more serious concussions.
Outside is a deceptively big garden, reached across a patio-come pathway and up a set of stone steps. This is given over to lawn, with a gravel area for a table and chairs suitable for al fresco dining.
There is also a flagged path across the centre of the lawn which leads to a stone outhouse.
Originally the privies for here and the home next door, these have been dragged kicking and screaming into this century and currently offer storage for any gardening equipment you may find looking for a home.
Back indoors and climbing the stairs we come first of all to the bathroom. This, overlooking the rear garden has a floor of wooden planking adding to the rustic feel of the home. This is a simple room, doing what it says on the tin. The walls are tiled to full height around the bath, allowing for the electric shower, with the remainder of the suite comprising a pedestal hand basin and lavatory. A large and convenient storage cupboard sits beside the door concealing the hot water tank which in turn, provides airing and linen storage facilities.
Finally we come into the front facing bedroom. With a continuation of the wooden floor from the bathroom this is a surprisingly large room, easily accommodating any free standing furniture you could need, supplemented by a large fitted cupboard offering space for hanging clothes.
