Y Boncyn is a delightful two bedroom cottage nestling among woodlands on the private Wern Estate in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Reached by a private lane, this luxurious cottage is secluded and tranquil and promises the perfect get away from it all holiday.  Originally a barn, this charming house has been lovingly restored in harmony with its surroundings. With its oak flooring, wood burning stove and pastel colours, whether you are looking for a romantic retreat or a family holiday, Y Boncyn won't disappoint. Step into the spacious open plan living/dining room with full height original beamed ceilings. Put another log onto the fire whilst you sink into the comfortable sofas. Original works of art – some quirky and some traditional – decorate the walls.  There is a smart TV and, of course,  high speed broadband.The well equipped kitchen, with handmade units and a slate worktop, has everything you need with breathtaking views across the rural landscape. Downstairs is Bedroom one with king size bed, antique furniture and a fantastic en-suite with bath and separate shower cubicle. Upstairs, under the eaves, is a the second bedroom (with twin beds which can be zipped together to make a King), with delightful en-suite bathroom and panoramic views. To the front of the cottage is a large, walled and lawned garden with parking area. This is a beautiful cottage where colours are serene, fabrics are fresh and paintings and furniture (old and new) add to both its character and style.  

We provide a lovely welcome pack including home made cake and jam and a huge basket of our own logs for the woodburning stove.  We also offer a cooked meal ready for your arrival (or even mid-way through your stay) at a very reasonable price.
