    The Cross Keys is a Grade II listed cottage in Llandderfel, a traditional Welsh village in the Lower Dee Valley. Originally a late-Georgian hostelry, it is now a comfortable, traditional but well-equipped holiday cottage sleeping six comfortably in four bedrooms. Semi-detached, Cross Keys has two rooms on each of three floors.
There is a small garden area available for guests' use.
The living room is comfortably furnished with sofa and chairs and has a multi-fuel stove and an electric heater. There is freeview TV, radio, CD, DVD and video players, along with a good selection of games and books.
The cleverly-designed, well-equipped kitchen with dining area has a range of hand-crafted units with slate work surfaces and a belfast sink; a hob, built-under oven/grill, microwave oven/grill, washing machine/dryer and larder fridge (freezer in the cellar below). There is a multi-fuel stove and an electric storage heater.
 On the first floor, the bedroom shown right is furnished as a single but can become a twin room. The double bedroom shown here left has a large walk-in wardrobe. Both have thermostatically-controlled electric heaters.



The compact but efficient, modern shower room has a basin, wc, bidet, heated towel rail, shaver point.



A narrow staircase (mind your head!) leads to two bedrooms on the second floor. These lead one into the other and can make a spacious family room. The first bedroom is large with a beamed, sloping ceiling and a king-sized bed. The smaller second bedroom has a day bed and trundle with sprung mattresses. Both rooms have fitted carpets and thermostatically-controlled heaters.
A cot suitable for a child up to two years old is available.
