    Cottage near Llyn Clywedog July/August

    I have the chance to fish Llyn Clywedog in July or August that I'm quite keen to take up. If anyone know of a cottage that may be available to rent for 2 people and a Spaniel I'd be pleased to hear from you. I appreciate that with everyone taking staycation this year it is a long shot. Thanks Graham
