The train cabin has a simple kitchen with a two ring induction hob, small fridge with freezer, pots & pans and utensils. Everything you need to cook up some simple, tasty meals. A fold down dining table sets the perfect scene for a romantic meal.
Across from the kitchen you’ll find a sumptuous double bed adorned with a fluffy duvet, plump pillows and a recycled wool tartan throw. Elderflower has its own bathroom with a toilet, basin and shower. Towels and basic toiletries provided.
Elderflower has its own private outdoor area perfect for enjoying those beautiful Spring and Summer days. An outside dining table is provided so guests can enjoy some al fresco dining. A fire pit with some complimentary wood is supplied along with a barbecue set. So treat yourselves to some flame-grilled meats and veg. In the evenings wrap yourselves in blankets and take in the wonderful unpolluted skies. Venture slightly further afield than your outdoor area and explore the beautiful conservation area the owners have restored with the help of Habitat Aid and The Woodland Trust. Somewhere amongst the beautiful meadows and woodland you will find a magnificent oak tree that makes the most perfect spot for a picnic.
If you have explored the 9 acres of woodland to your heart’s content, there are local amenities just a short car journey away. There are various pubs and restaurants to sample as well as fun days out. Some of the restaurants include The Clytha Arms, The Hardwick, and Foxhunter Inn to name a few. The wonderful medieval Raglan Castle is a 12 minute car journey away, which you might recognise if you are a fan of Merlin as it is where one of the battles took place! Clytha Castle and Park is only ten minutes away with lots of lovely walks to follow that can be found on the National Trust website. If watersports floats your boat, then Llandegfedd Lake will be right up your stream.
