Holiday Rental House
Gwenoldy (Swallows' Rest in Welsh) is a luxurious cottage, converted from an 18th century stone-built barn. Its setting is spectacular, with glorious views across a secluded valley. We are in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and enjoy a wonderfully peaceful lifestyle. Gwenoldy offers every comfort, from a woodburning stove to broadband internet access, for up to four people. Children are welcome. Snowdonia, Chester and the North Wales beaches are close at hand, and local amenities include excellent pubs serving good food, a crafts and antique centre with a popular restaurant, and many country shops and sporting venues....Gwenoldy (Swallows' Rest in Welsh) is a luxurious cottage, converted from an 18th century stone-built barn.
