To Summarise - a word from the owners...

The local area has so much to offer and you can have some amazing day trips, but we really love life in our little patch of Mid Wales and feel that you can have the most memorable adventures right here where the pace of life slows down and you feel at one with nature. Climb a hill, watch the sunrise or sunset, build a den, dam a brook, listen to the birds singing, play pooh stick on the little bridge down the lane, read a book in the open air, fill a sketchbook with drawings and paintings, the list goes on.

Reviews

This was a wonderful semi-detached barn conversion, a credit to the owners. The surrounding scenery was perfect, well worth travelling up the two miles of single track road to get there from the A470. We have stayed in many cottages over the years but this was the best.

Mr Michael Melia,

The barn conversion is absolutely stunning and contained everything we need. The owner, Rhodri, gave us a warm. Welsh welcome on arrival and was on hand if we needed anything, but otherwise the cottage was wonderfully secluded. We enjoyed so many lovely days out and relaxing evenings cosy in front of the log burner. We had an absolutely fantastic holiday - four nights was just not enough and we truly can't wait to return. I'd highly recommend this holiday home to anyone looking for a relaxing break.

Mrs Stephanie Ellis,

Area Information

This semi-detached cottage is part of an amazing barn conversion in a blissfully quiet location. Lovingly restored and renovated by its owners, National Trust Ranger and Art teacher, Rhodri and Elinor, who will be sure to give you a warm Welsh welcome. Enjoy the far-reaching views, watch red kites from your window, or explore Glyndwr’s Way, just half a mile from the barn.

Surrounded by fields and organic farmland yet easily accessible, just 2 miles off the A470, and 7 miles from the vibrant market town of Machynlleth, the Ancient Capital of Wales. Enjoy the array of independent shops, pubs and welcoming cafes, as well as the oldest street market in Britain every Wednesday. Head out to the beautiful beach at Aberdyfi (17 miles), or seek out adventures in the Snowdonia National Park in less than 15 minutes.

Amongst the best places to eat in the area are Number Twenty One Bistro and Wynnstay Hotel in Machynlleth (7 miles), Brigands Inn in Mallwyd (9 miles), Glan yr Afon in Pennal and for traditional pub food, Llew Coch in Dinas Mawddwy (both 11 miles). For take-away, Hennighans' Fish & Chip Shop of the Year is recommended, as well as Penrhos Arms. For fine dining, Ynyshir Hall (13 miles) has to be the one, with accolades such as a Michelin Star and 5 AA Rosettes, as well as appearing at no. 12 in the Good Food Guide 2017/18 and no. 15 in Harden's Best UK Restaurants 2017/2018. The nearest good pub can be found in Glantwymyn (3.5 miles), called Dyfi Valley Hotel.

Talyllyn narrow gauge railway offers a great day out, as does the Centre for Alternative Technology, a range of legendary castles (such as Castell y Bere and Harlech), Ynys Hir Nature Reserve and Dyfi Osprey Project, King Arthur’s Labyrinth and Corris Craft Centre. Also highly recommended is Coed y Brenin's mountain biking centre and a trip to Aberystywth (home to the National Library of Wales, the largest Arts Centre in Wales etc). On the way home, treat yourself to a fine meal and a film at Libanus 1877 (Boutique cinema and restaurant) in Borth.
