'Ffynnon Townhouse sits, deliciously imposing, overlooking the town below and with the foothills of Cader Idris behind,' says Sian. 'Guests curl up on elegant armchairs in the library or sneak off for a soak in the hot-tub at the bottom of the garden.' And, surprisingly, for such a luxurious retreat, Ffynnon is 'fabulously parent-friendly'.
