House layout

Floor plan of Maes-yr-eglwys-wen holiday house.
House floor plan.

The plan above was drawn by a letting company that also handles the booking for the house. It isn’t quite accurate but gives a reasonable feel for the layout. The main room at the top is larger than it seems on the drawing and the family bathroom is also bigger. What you should be able to see is the layout of the four bedrooms, one with en-suite bathroom, and the five doors out to the garden. You can walk out into the garden through the south-east facing door from the two bedrooms at the front of the house, for example. Please ask if you need more information about the size and arrangement of the house.

Living room

The dining and sitting areas have underfloor heating and slate tiles throughout.

The main living room has floor-to-ceiling windows facing south-west and French windows opening on to the patio. A large oak dining table with matching chairs, bench and kitchen dresser are in the middle of this high-ceilinged room. Comfortable seating (sofa and easy chairs) is at the southern end of the room along with a television with DVD and radio via satellite.

The kitchen is well equipped for serious cooking. The Stoves induction range machine has a five-plate hob, three ovens (incorporating two grills) and a plate warmer. There is also a microwave, a fridge freezer, and an exceptionally quiet dishwasher. Washing machine and drier are in the laundry cupboard.

The living room and kitchen are linked to the original cottage via an open hall area, with one glass door leading to the entrance area facing north-east and the other giving access to the patio (south-west). The separate toilet and large coat / storage cupboard open off on either side. Slate flooring extends into a light corridor leading to the bedrooms. Just visible in the photo above is the large picture window which looks out towards the hills to the west.

The original cottage has kept its wooden floors, now sanded and polished, and we’ve furnished as simply as possible with solid oak beds and chests of drawers.

Bedroom 1

The main bedroom looks over the field. It has a king size (5 ft) bed and ensuite bathroom with bath, shower attachment and lavatory. It contains a dressing table and a large chest of drawers tucked into the old fireplace. There’s a stool underneath the dressing table and a place to use a laptop computer if you need to work at the house. Full-length hanging space is available in the fitted wardrobe in adjoining lobby area.

Outside the house

When the weather is sunny, the patio (completely private) is a good place to eat or read a book. The south and west sides of the house have small lawns. The grassed area in front of the old house can be seen in the photograph below. We sit here to enjoy the evening sun.

There’s parking space for at least two cars behind the house.

We’ve shown the house on sunny days in most of our photographs. Just for balance, here’s a shot of the patio on a rainy day.

The compensating advantage of Maes-yr-eglwys-wen’s variable weather is that it is rarely, if ever, too hot to enjoy bicycling, walking and other outdoor pursuits.

We provide eco-friendly dishwasher tablets, washing liquid, soaps, and toilet paper.
