There is no central heating at Nantcol other than the kitchen AGA, so part of the adventure is lighting the two coal fires when you arrive. Each room has a backup of electric fires and electric blankets for all the beds. There is no broadband internet, mobile phone or TV reception at the house. However there is a landline telephone.
Nantcol is surrounded by ancient stone walls. There is a delightful terrace overlooking the bowl of the Rhinog Mountains with a picnic table. There is also a large grassy area to play cricket or other such games. There are 3 stone barns. One is the coal shed, the other is a garage for wood and implements (not cars) and next door is a delightful pig sty which has been turned into children’s playhouse. There is plenty of parking for at least 3 cars.
