With one wall being primarily glass, thanks to the windows and door, this room is a haven of natural light. Traditional wooden furniture compliments the oak frame of the house.

The family bathroom ism vast in size. Sleek grey tiling and white sanitaryware keep the room looking fairly classic. The punchy turquoise wall adds a hit of vibrancy.

The gardens at Chy Lyn extend to around 3.4 acres, comprising lawns, woods and two lakes, a productive poly tunnel and a kitchen garden. The poly tunnel provides a wealth of fresh produce for the household.

Three streams run through the land and provide the lakes with a flow of fresh water. Currently, there are brown trout and carp in the lakes.
