Machynlleth is a great little town: no chains apart from the Co-Op, all in walking distance, and with an excellent weekly market, plus it's well situated for travelling to most other parts of Wales. The cottage was even cool despite the heatwave! Ms Gale Maurice - 16th August 2018
The property’s location was excellent - historic building and great architectural features - also modern and clean.Dewi from Cardiff - 2nd July 2018
The place is absolutely fantastic - old cottage/barn atmosphere is very relaxing, all finishes are to high standard, there is welcoming pack, everything is clean and the place is warm (very important!). Also leaflets about attractions and little guild about the house. Highly recommended! The team was very helpful to move the booking and liaison with the owner, everything was taken care of. Anna from London - 14th May 2018
Amazing property, perfect location, one fabulous holiday! Diolch yn fawr (thank you very much).Martin from Altrincham - 19th February 2018
Excellent. Brilliant location and very well equipped. Was all very easy and went according to plan. Machynclleth was a great base to get back to at the end of an action packed day. The White Lion was good for food. The Red Lion good for a drink. China garden was good for takeaway. The co-op good for shopping. All with walking distance of the property.Katie and Family from Cumbria - 6th August 2017
An interesting property to stay at with a lovely open plan living area which was great for hanging out in. Well thought out and equipped for visitors. Very helpful local point of contact. Welcoming townsfolk.
Recommendations: Wednesday market has good quality produce. Beautiful beach at Aberdovey. See ospreys at Osprey Project. Precipice Walk near Dolgellau is a good walk for all, including middle-aged greyhounds, with superb scenery.Fiona from St Albans - 2nd August 2017
Preliminary stages of searching for a property to buy. This was an ideal pace to stay as a central base for trips as far north as Porthmadog and as far south as Lampeter. All was perfect despite our last minute booking.
Tips: Pick a place like Devils Bridge and trust your SatNav to take you there via some amazing countryside as long as you don't mind steep and narrow roads.Alan from Suffolk - 22nd October 2016
