Welcome Cottages

A carefully curated collection of properties that offer high quality, good value accommodation in great locations across the UK, Ireland, France and Italy


Beautiful, spacious, family cottage, with beams, wood and slate floors, exposed stonework, feature fireplace with open fire, and woodland walks.

Pen-Ilin is situated at the base of the mountains of Arenig Fach and Arenig Fawn and from the windows of the main large vaulted living areas and master bedroom are stunning views directly over Lake Celyn. This detached property is sited in an area of SSI, where an abundance of unusual wildlife are regularly spotted. The area is also of particular historic interest, as the site is a former 16th century Quaker settlement that consists of the wonderfully spacious Pen-Ilin along with the original detached Quaker meeting house. The site extends to 9.5 acres with Pen-Ilin enjoying its own secluded areas, private parking but sharing access with the cottage to a private wood and a large paddock and river frontage. Enjoy a walk through the paddock where the paths wind through breathtaking mountain scenery, pass secluded lakes and where native falcons are often seen overhead. The first things that most visitors comment on when they visit is the tranquil setting and the sense of space within the barns interior, and although the general theme is contemporary, many original features, such as a large stone fireplace and exposed beams have been retained. Golf can be found nearby. Shop 2 miles, pub and restaurant 7 miles.

    The cottage is in a lovely setting. It is sold a 4 bedroom but one room you have to walk through to get to other bedroom so was not ideal for us and not really explained in information. It is hard to find first time round and with no phone or wifi impossible to contact host if you need to!
