Description - Number 4 Glanrafon is a 3 bedroom terraced country cottage set in a beautiful rural location. Constructed of stone under a pitch slated roof the property is Grade II listed and dates from the late 19th century, originally built as a workers cottage during the construction of the nearby Lake Vyrnwy dam.
