We absolutely loved our stay here. Modern, warm, spacious, quiet and just outside the town of machynlleth. Perfect for us and two little ones. The home owners couldn’t do more to make us feel welcome and we will miss seeing their dog.

Mr S,

This is a beautifully converted tithe barn with all mod cons situated in a quiet village.

Mr O,

You would not be disappointed with this cottage, or the friendly and helpful hosts. Milk, cake and flowers make it very welcoming. For dark sky enthusiasts this is a great location - weather permitting!! Lots of outdoor space for children as well. This is definitely a "visit again" property.

Mrs P,

A really lovely cottage, the hosts are amazing. We got there in the evening, tired from travelling but there there were 2 homemade delicious cakes and lovely flowers. The garden is large and spacious with pergola, where you can spend time on very comfortable outdoor chairs. We were very impressed as the cottage had everything we needed and even extras! We would definitely recommend this: as we plan to go back there.

Mr S,

Lovely cottage, comfortable, had everything we needed and more. Garden great for spending time in the evenings.

Dr H,

This was the perfect holiday cottage for us in a wonderful location. The barn conversion cottage was renovated to a very high standard with all the amenities to make the stay a very comfortable experience. The owners Gareth and Lilian were very friendly and helpful and although their property was next door they left us alone. I would definitely return to this holiday cottage again.

Mr G,

Property exceptionally clean. Well appointed. Owners in adjacent property - very friendly and helpful. Enjoyed the holiday.

Mrs K,

Quiet location, great hosts, comfy beds, outdoor seating area and well equipped kitchen

Previous Customer,


This newly refurbished barn conversion enjoyes a tranquil setting in the small and quiet village of Llanwrin on the outskirts of Machynlleth. Located in the heart of the Dyfi Valley, this is a great, central location to explore Mid, North and West Wales and its wide range of attractions.

The historic market town of Machynlleth (3.5 miles) is also known as the Ancient Capital of Wales. It offers an abundance of quirky shops, restaurants, cafés and takeaways along with a range of amenities such a supermarket, garages, banks etc. It is also home to the oldest street market in Britain every Wednesday and MOMA Wales, a showcase of modern Welsh art. Amongst the best places to eat in the area is Bistro Number 21 and the Wynnstay in Machynlleth, Glan yr Afon and Y Garth in Pennal (5 miles), and Brigands Inn in Mallwyd (8.5 miles). There are good local pubs as well, including the White Lion in Machynlleth with a range of local ale.

The cottage is close to beautiful beaches, the university town of Aberystwyth and is an ideal location to visit the delights of Snowdownia National Park and the Ceredigion coast. Some of the main attractions in the area include Cors Dyfi Nature Reserve and Ynys Hir RSBP Reserve, Dyfi Osprey Project, the Centre of Alternative Technology and King Arthur's Labyrinth (an underground adventure). Other recommended days out include Dovey Valley Clay Shooting, Falconry Experience Wales, Tal-y-llyn Steam Railway and numerous scenic walks in all directions. For something totally different; why not venture to Blaenau Ffestiniog for some zip wire and Bounce Below adventure.
