Hael Farm Cottage is a 5* (rated by Visit Wales) cottage in a wonderfully secluded location adjacent to Hael Farm, yet less than a mile from the village of Southgate with shops, pub and restaurant. It is approached down a farm track which is also a bridle path which passes through the farm yard and continues down to Pwlldu Beach through a shaded wood alondside a babbling brook. The cottage has a double, a twin (with en suite) and a single room, which does have a pullout divan to give a second bed suitable for children, enabling the cottage to sleep 6. The bedrooms and bathroom are on the ground floor with the open plan living area above, giving panoramic views over the surrounding countryside. There is a fully eqipped kitchen with electric oven, hob, microwave and all the appliances expect...Hael Farm Cottage is a 5* (rated by Visit Wales) cottage in a wonderfully secluded location adjacent to Hael Farm, yet less than a mile from the village of Southgate with shops, pub and restaurant.
