The house in detail
The house is 15 minutes' drive from Aberdyfi and Machynlleth. It is down a well maintained farm track and perfect to get away from it all. The only sounds to disturb you are the sheep and occasional passing tractor. Full of antiques and locally made crafts, but we also have modern mod cons - Wi-Fi, TV with digital box, Hi Fi and Blue Tooth speakers. The kitchen is well equipped with an electric range cooker with hob and 2 ovens; plus a toaster and microwave/convection oven. There is a small fridge in the kitchen and a larger fridge freezer in the utility room.
The downstairs bathroom and kitchen slate floors both have underfloor heating, to take the chill off, if you are staying in winter months.
The utility room has a washing machine and tumble dryer; overhead clothes dryer and boot rack. Perfect if you are a keen walker or cyclist. Bikes can also be stored here under cover.
There are 2 bathrooms, vital if you are a large group.
The garden has a large barbecue, table and bench for alfresco lunches and a log chiminea for chilly evenings.
We welcome dogs and the garden is well fenced. The property is non-smoking.
We are rated 4 star by Visit Wales
THINGS TO DO
This beautiful seaside village is full of great shops, crabbing off the jetty, home-made ice cream and an enormous beach that is dog friendly.
Machynlleth was the seat of the first Welsh Parliament in 1404. It is full of antique and vintage shops as well as a great market on Wednesdays
Centre for Alternative Technology
has been inspiring visitors about sustainable practice for over 40 years. With seven acres of hands-on displays, examples of environmentally responsible building, renewable energy, organic gardens and kids’ holiday activities.
Ynys-Hir Bird reserve
is on the other side of the river from the farmhouse. Summer brings wading birds, such as lapwings and redshanks and some very special butterflies. Come the colder months, ducks and geese move in.
is justifiably the second most-popular mountain in Wales after Snowdon. The summit itself is called Pen y Gadair and is 2930 ft high. A great challenge.
Corris Craft Centre
is a craft and leisure complex in Corris. Various crafts and a gin distillery are some the attractions. Also King Arther's Labyrinth is a network of underground caves.
This has been our fifth stay here and it never ceases to amaze us. We absolutely love this cottage and the location. If we could afford it and if it was for sale we would HAVE to live here permanently. The owners have thought of everything and the cottage is so comfortable it truly is a home from home. The kitchen is really well stocked with pots and pans, utensils etc, that you can cook anything you can think of. There is a very welcome selection of store cupboard essentials so if you have forgotten that one herb or stock cube chances are you will find one in the cupboard. The showers are both good, and the tub is "the mother of all tubs!" according to my daughter. The bed linen and duvets are lovely quality and the master bed is very comfy as are the others, I'm told by the others in our party. The garden has such lovely views its not a problem to stay at the house and just relax. The BBQ was clean and nice to use - which we did twice. We love how off the beaten track the cottage is and the isolation is perfect, the only other person/people we saw were the occasional walker on the path to cottage or the friendly farmer
