A nice cottage in a great location on the edge of Coed y Brenin forest. An excellent base for mountain biking and walking in the area, and there are plenty of options for all abilities.

Mr B,

The location of Maeagwm is wonderful, with stunning views over forests and mountains. The cottage is clean and comfortable and was very spacious for our family of 5 adults. There is lots to do in the area, including many wonderful walks.

Prof B,

Cannot wait to return, this time without Storm Dennis.

Megan S,

Maesgwm Farm is a beautiful home with a perfect family feel. Plenty of space, very comfortable and an overall stunning location. The walks & cycles from the front door are breathtaking. You really are surrounded by nature when you stay here. The hosts are wonderfully friendly. We hope to return.
