Machynlleth Cottages

The historic town of Machynlleth is situated in the beautiful Dyfi Valley and holds a strong Welsh atmosphere. Visit the small town and listen to the locals speaking Welsh - they may even teach you a few words!

Machynlleth has something to offer everyone with mainly independent shops lining the streets, such as arts & crafts, jewellers specialising in rare Welsh gold, and even vegetarian and non-vegetarian cafes. Add into the mix the beautiful countryside surrounding the town, with attractions and activities galore, and we can guarantee that visitors won't be disappointed.

What is there to do around Machynlleth?

Due to its stunning location within the Dyfi Valley, there are many activities to take part in and worthy places to visit. Here are just a few:

  • Mountain biking in the sport's premier location, Coed-y-Brenin Forest, which is suitable for keen bikers and families alike. The Dyfi Forest also has a purpose built 15km mountain biking trail with a final descent claiming to be the longest in Wales.
  • Walk along a part of either the Cambrian or Glyndwr's Way and take in the spectacular scenery that Machynlleth has to offer. If you're feeling energetic, why not join other hikers and walk up Cadair Idris with an elevation of 2,930 feet.
  • Visit the innovative Centre for Alternative Technology – an educational visitor centre covering aspects of green living.
  • Take a short drive to several award-winning beaches and enjoy the day frolicking in the sea and building sand castles!
  • If you're planning a visit between April and September, try to go and see the Ospreys at the Dyfi Osprey Project, who bred on the reserve for the first time in 2011, which was featured on the BBC programme, Springwatch.

What is Machynlleth's history?

Radio carbon dating from the late 1990s showed that within a mile of the centre of Machynlleth, copper mining took place in the Early Bronze Age, showing that humans have lived/worked in the area for several thousand years.In 1291, a charter granted by Edward I to the Lord of Powys gave him the right to hold a market at Machynlleth every Wednesday, and over 700 years later, a street market is still being held in the small town.

  • The building said to be Owain Glyndwr's 1404 Parliament House at Machynlleth has a special role in Welsh History because of its connection with the Prince of Wales who rebelled against the English during the reign of King Henry IV; it is one of three medieval houses in the town.In 1874 a clock tower was built in the centre of Machynlleth to celebrate the 21st birthday of the Earl's eldest son. The clock still takes pride of place today and is one of the first historic buildings any visitor to the town will notice.
