In the last episode of the series Cartrefi Cefn Gwlad Cymru, Aled Samuel explores 'The Cottage' - for many a romantic symbol of a more simple past, a lost world that represents life before the modern industrial age.

Channel: S4C
Time: 21:00
Date: 24 November, 2010
Series title: Cartrefi Cefn Gwlad Cymru

Wig-wen-fach was empty for decades before being left to the National Trust in 1989 – the smoke-blackened interior of one end of the building appears to have been virtually untouched for over a century. The original wall surface, floor, wickerwork chimney and underthatch survive in a delicate but original condition.
