Evangeline's cabin offers an idyllic getaway for couples seeking an escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. Beautifully crafted, it stands close to the village of Penallt in the Wye Valley. The name of the village translates from Welsh as head of the wooded hill, and though now much of the ancient woodland has gone some still remains, gifting the area with a sense of magic which lingers even now.
Located in the grounds of a friendly rural small-holding enclosed by a private garden, the cabin also has a garden of its own with a veranda where you can sit outside long into the late summer night. From here you can look over the luscious garden with its ever changing foliage and the grounds beyond, where you will often see alpacas, sheep and chicken, fellow inhabitants of this beautiful space.
Within there is a sense of space, light and freedom, with the generously sized open plan kitchen and living room granting you liberty to wander as you please. Adorned with furnishings and fabric from Evangelines travels to India and Nepal, the living area will welcome you with rich, warm colours.
The kitchen has all cooking utensils you will need for a relaxing self catering holiday, including a cooker, fridge, washing machine, microwave and a range of small appliances (including a Nespresso coffee machine.)
There is a TV with DVD player, and wifi can be picked up at certain points in the garden. Mobile phone signals vary depending on the network and can be fairly unreliable, but herein lies the cabins charm as a haven from the demands of the modern world.
The en-suite bedroom has a beautiful double bed and a wooden wardrobe with all the space you will need. French doors lead straight from the room to the garden, so you can wake up and wander outside feeling the morning dew on your bare feet.
The shower provides constant hot water, and the cabin is heated by very effective electric radiators.
There is no extra charge for energy use, and fresh linen and towels are provided.
Walking shoes a bicycles can safely be kept on the veranda.
The cabin sleeps two adults. Sorry, no children or pets.
