Overview of The Fox Den ..
A unique cosy little pod tucked away in a few trees in the Heart of Mid Wales. The Fox Den is the perfect getaway for a family of 4. It really does use all the space well, sit back and relax with a good book, whilst the children use the fenced area around the pod to play. A small kitchen equipped with everything you need to cook up good welsh breakfast or an evening meal to enjoy in your cabin or on the outdoor seating area whilst taking in the Welsh Scenery.
Perfect for cosy evenings in, the efficient TV unit contains a mini fridge and storage, and you can kick back and relax on the two sofas, one with storage underneath which also pulls out to a single bed, and one which transforms into an innovative pull-down bed.
For further sleeping space, there's also a fixed high-level child's bunk with removable ladder in the living area, and a dining area is created with a foldaway table.
The convenient kitchenette includes a two-burner gas hob with extractor, sink and microwave with shelving, and additional storage is provided by overhead cupboards.
In the practical, yet stylish washroom, is a large shower enclosure, contemporary dual-flush WC, heated towel rail and shower socket, plus generous storage via a vanity cupboard with sink, and large cupboard. A window lets in natural light, and an extractor fan keeps everything fresh and dry.
