The Ground Floor
The main lounge comfortably seats 6 and has an open fire, an internet connected TV, patio doors leading to the garden and a lovely view of the evening sunset.
In the dining room you'll find a dining table with seating for six, a table football table and just for show - an original bread oven. There's also a small comfy sofa, a quiet place to read or just sit and escape!
The second kitchen/utility room has a low mounted electric oven and grill with retractable door, an enormous combination microwave oven and grill - large enough to accommodate the turkey at Christmas, a 9kg washing machine and a large tumble dryer
On The First Floor
At the head of the stairs is the White Room (king size double) the front Twin Room (two single beds or one super king size double), the Rear Room (three single beds or one single and one super king size double) and the family bathroom. This bathroom has a full bath, shower, handbasin and WC.
For a place to escape along the corridor is the second (upstairs) lounge with seating for 6, an internet connected TV and a BlueRay / DVD player. There’s a library of DVD’s in the kitchen
Beyond the upstairs lounge is the Porthole Bedroom (King size double) and a luxury ensuite bathroom with full standalone bath, rainstorm shower with body sprays, handbasin, WC and a waterproof TV!
Single / Double beds / Cot / High Chairs
The single beds in any of the twin rooms (upstairs and downstairs) can be set up as Super King Size double beds giving the option for up to five double beds plus one single. We have a full size travel cot which can be set up in any room. There are two high chairs
The garden is peaceful, secluded and sheltered. With more than 6 acres to roam in there is a flat lawn, a wonderful seating area overlooking the valley, a small barbecue and a five person hot tub.
The hot tub - located to take full advantage of the views over the valley and to catch the setting sun is a lovely place to relax whatever the weather. It really is a wonderful place to be.
Heating and Hot Water
Penrhiw has central heating with electric underfloor heating in the bathrooms, both kitchens and the back hall. Hot water is supplied by the wood pellet boiler in the outhouse and there's an immersion heater as a back up.
The wind turbine provides most of Penrhiw's electricity and what Penrhiw doesn't use is exported to the grid to keep Johns cows warm. There's a payphone in the kitchen as mobile - reception is poor
We provide a starter pack of wood for the fire in the lounge and barbecue brickets in the outhouse. We will leave you instructions on how to use the hot tub and there are outside taps at the front and rear of the house with hoses so you can wash down before entering the house or packing up your car.
Bedding and tea towels are included but soap and towels are not - sorry!
Internet and TV’s
There are Sony internet connected TV’s in the Porthole Bedroom, White Bedroom and both lounges with various built in services including iPlayer, Netflix and Amazon Prime which are all free to use. Each TV has a chromecast attached allowing you to cast TV, video or pictures direct from your phone or tablet.
Most rooms have voice activated Google Home Mini’s with google assistant that can answer your questions, play music via Spotify Premium (free to use), stream radio or tell you jokes. There's also a Google Home Hub in the kitchen which can also stream videos and pictures. They can all act as Bluetooth speakers so you can play music or stream radio from your phone.
The WiFi is free to use with good coverage in the house and a download connection speed of around 10mbs but can drop out occassionally. If you have wifi calling it works pretty well as an alternative to the payphone.
