Our family found the soundscape with "around the dusk and around the dawn" concertos (of sheep, cows, dogs, and birds) very eloquent :-) Positives: There were LOTS of birds of prey. Not chasing anything else but their prey and this was something I haven't seen elsewhere in these extents although there are "centres of birds of pray" here and there. These shows were available at least twice each day - just make sure that you can stop to enjoy the act!Dr (Mr.) Kari Koskinen - 26th July 2018
A lovely, well decorated house to take a rest atMr B Mberi - 23rd July 2018
This was our 2nd time at the property. Both times have been home from home. Very lovely cottage, well situated for exploring. Lots to do and see very close by. The whole family loved the cottage and cannot wait to return. Very clean, well equipped, stunning situation and welcoming host. BRILLIANT.Noel from Devon - 13th April 2018
What a little (or not so little) gem. It was a real cosy and welcoming cottage. The owner was very helpful and even decorated it for us with Christmas decorations. I hope to return some time in the not too distant future. Janine from Chester - 5th January 2018
Great cottage for the 4 of us to get away from it all. Warm and cosy, lots of space, fantastic setting.Ms Celia Robertson - 4th January 2018
The property was very clean and homely. Very spacious and surrounded by lovely countryside.
Recommends: Visit all the places in the surrounding the area. The electric mountain was good.Friends from York - 18th June 2017
A cosy house for a get together.
Recommendations: The fish and chip shop in machynlleth - deservedly a winner. Centre for Alternative Technology - interesting and a nice cafe and shop.Family from West Yorkshire - 25th April 2017
The property surpassed all our expectations. It was very homely and we were sad to leave. The nature reserve up the road from the property provides a lovely (if a little windy) walk. If you're looking further afield then Mount Snowdon is a must. We were lucky to have a clear day and the Llanberis path was a pleasant walk for all ages of the family. For those who want some action Coed y Brenin is awesome for mountain biking and for those who want a more leisurely pace their walks are beautiful. Machynlleth provides the amenities needed. The market on Wednesday is always worth a look and The White Lion pub provides proper pub grub at a reasonable price.Noel from Sidmouth. Devon - 11th April 2017
Peaceful and comfortable. There's loads to do - plan to do a few things well but make time to relax. Worth doing research before hand - we found some lovely walks on NRW website.Family from Carmarthen - 27th August 2016
It was great. Location was spectacular. Cottage was homely and clean. Kids loved their room. We had great weather which helps! The beach at Ynyslas is lovely - miles of golden Sands. New Quay was a lovely seaside town to visit. Food at Black Lion in Derwenlas was excellent as was the Riverside at Pennal. - 20th August 2016
