Ol y Don Holiday Cottage in Newport
Ol-y-Don, is a fantastic, tasteful cottage renovation only 50 yards from the Estuary tucked away on a no through road in the popular seaside village of Newport. The open plan kitchen/diner with granite worktops and wooden floorboards is just the start, the sitting room beckons with a large, curved sofa and a real woodburner. The unusual lighthouse style slate-stepped spiral staircase leads to 3 lovely bedrooms (one twin is accessed through the other) with a spacious master bedroom with a brass bed and views over the lawn. There is a timber decked covered veranda and a large slated patio for enjoying the sun into the evening. The large lawn and pony paddock beyond are for guests use and the 1.5 acre grounds are surrounded by hedges and tall trees for privacy. The village pubs, tennis courts, shops and restaurants are only a stroll up the hill and the water in the other direction - a fabulous place to stay all year round.
