About Maes Gylfinir

Maes Gylfinir is a modern, self-contained bungalow that is attached to our own bungalow home.

Your holiday bungalow has central heating with thermostatically-controlled radiators, which you can adjust to your own level of comfort. An electric immersion heater provides the hot water for the kitchen and the bathroom. This newly-fitted bathroom has both a bath and an electric shower; the shower is independent of the hot water, so you can shower as often as you wish without depleting the hot water supply.

The bedroom and the huge lounge have deep, fitted-carpets while the bathroom, hallway, kitchen and breakfast room have cushion vinyl flooring. The lounge is provided with a television and a digital video recorder. The bedroom window and the lounge patio door face east across fields to the Cambrian Mountains, while the fully equipped kitchen and the breakfast room face west across the garden, which is always full of birds.

Your hosts are Karen and Ian Poyser.
