It was very smooth. Everything was clean and modern. The location looked fantastic and was just a short drive to Machynlleth Town Centre.

We visited Machynlleth to go to the comedy festival. The property was fantastic, we felt very at home and had everything we needed.Group of friends from Cardiff - 2nd May 2016
We spent a weekend in mid Wales, and Y Llwyn was the perfect base for us to explore the area from! It was very clean and Eryl, the owner, was very helpful and made it very easy. Don't miss dinner at the fabulous Ynyshir Hall - incredible!Friends from Pontypool - 19th April 2016

We would really like to return to stay at the cottage again, soon. Make sure you take walking boots and to see the countryside you definately need a car.Eva and Family - 30th December 2015
