Living Large In Small Spaces - Wrangler's Rest


Today's featured small space is a sweet little cowboy cabin. 


Wrangler's Rest - Blaentrothy Holiday Cottages

Welcome to the fifty-first post in the series
"Living Large in Small Spaces" 

This cabin's location was a surprise to me. I'd expect to see it in the US West. But, nope. Today we're saddling up and riding to a working farm in the Black Mountains of Wales to tour this holiday rental.

John and Sue, the owners, work with horses. John is known as the "Horselistener".




Climb down off your hoss and we'll poke around. Of course, first we'll have to stop and check out the inviting front porch.




I have my eye on that beautiful patchwork quilt.




We enter into the kitchen. 



And a mighty pretty little kitchen it is. All dressed up in red, white and blue.




A charming white hutch completes the country kitchen picture. (Did you notice the curtain rod?)









The wood burner keeps the cabin warm and cozy.




Western art and cowboy gear fill the cabin.




The bedroom continues the red, white and blue color scheme.





A cowboys and covered wagons pattern on the bedding keeps to the western frontier theme.









This is such a fun space.







The living room adjoins the kitchen.






Two big leather chairs in the living rooms offer a place to read or watch TV. 





Or snuggle under one of the throws and dream.






All the walls in the cabin are wood paneled, including the bathroom.




If the weather is nice, kick off your boots and relax in the shade. A perfect spot for a siesta.





Okay pardner, before you skedaddle, tell me what you think of Wrangler's Rest?

  1. I love it and still can't believe you found this adorable cabin in Wales of all places. It just goes to show that, "You can take the cowboy out of the west, but you can't take the west out of the cowboy." The sheets on the bed and wonderful. I wonderful if they made them, or found a place to order them.
    As for you young lady 51 small homes that in quite an accomplishment. I absolutely love touring these small spaces with you and enjoying the enthusiasm that shines through in you writing about them.
    Here's wishing you a lovely weekend.
    Connie :)

  9. I just love it!!!! How neat is that!?! I can't tell if there is a door on the bedroom or not---but I think that is one place I would want to be able to close off for privacy. What a great use of all the space there, though! xo Diana
