Cefn Bach ("little house on the hill")
Cefn Bach (pronounced kevan bark) is a unique property defined by its breathtaking location. It is part of the old farm where I live.
One thousand feet up, sheltered in a south facing fold of the hillside, Cefn Bach commands extraordinary views down the beautiful Ceiriog Valley on the Welsh borders.
This two-hundred year old converted barn provides a warm, comfortable, child-friendly base from which to explore this historic and spectacular area.
Which of these get-away ideas suits you?
A family holiday, with rides on Thomas the Tank Engine at the nearby Llangollen railway; some leisurely walks on the valley’s many footpaths; cycling, riding or even quad biking over the local hills; on a rainy day, playing table-tennis and table football in the next door barn; kicking back on the sofa with a few logs on the wood-burner and watching a few DVD’s on the flat screen TV.
A romantic break in the Welsh hills. Warm your toes in front of a real fire; feel the sun on your cheeks and the wind in your hair; stroll hand in hand through a wood carpeted with bluebells; step out of the door and toboggan together down the hill to the local pub.
A perfect location for a walking holiday. Follow the famous Offa’s Dyke Path as it weaves across the valley; discover the hidden delights of the Ceiriog trail, criss-crossing the fastest flowing river in Wales; head out to the Berwyns, up to Snowdonia or just stay in the hills for both easy leisure walking or for some serious hiking.
Cefn Bach fits the bill for any one of these get-aways. Or pick, mix and add your own ingredients for an unforgettable experience.
