Lovely quaint cottage
Stayed at this lovely cottage between Xmas and New Year. Very clean and adequate for our needs. Lovely view across the hills,
Gorgeous cottage, perfect for a couple getaway
Gorgeous cottage that was exactly what we needed for a relaxing weekend break. The space has been used amazingly meaning the cottage has a very relaxed and yet functional feel. Great location for a walk up Cadair Idris followed by a stroll into the village to eat a very nice meal at the local pub in the evening. The owners are just next door and give you plenty of privacy but are extremely helpful and friendly if help is needed. Would definitely recommend this cottage. Thanks very much.
Brilliant weekend break and lovely place

Quirky, tranquil, cosy.
Loved the atmosphere at this lovely cottage. Hosts Guy and Jennie were really nice though both of them was suffering with a virus. Love to go back again. Thanks for lovely stay.
Lovely Cottage - Helpful owners
We have just returned from a 2 night stay at the cottage, everything was great and the owners were really helpful but left us to it to enjoy our stay. Highly recommend.
Fantastic location, excellent hosts and superb accomodation
We had a brilliant week, the cottage is excellent both inside and out, the gardens are amazing. We had breakfast at the patio table each morning listening to the birds singing and the odd Red Kite flying overhead. Guy and Jenny are excellent hosts, always happy to have a chat but not intrusive in any way. The off-road parking is a big plus. Excellent base for exploring the area, just a few hundred yards from joining Glyndŵr's Way if you like walking. The Cann Office hotel in the village serves very tasty food and has a good selection of beers, we always received a nice welcome there. Lake Vyrnwy and Powis Castle and Gardens are within a 30 minute drive and you can drive to Barmouth on the coast in about 50 minutes. I would definitely recommend this to anyone loooking to holiday in the area.
Canoeing and kayaking is available/hire locally. Off road Carriage driving/riding/ cycling events are held on the purpose built courses on the forested mountain-side. Amazing hillside/open access walking for moderate level and above, plus local weekly ramblers meetings can be checked for your stay. There is a famous shrine to St Melangell in a church hidden in a most heavenly valley nearby. This is close to the highest waterfall in Wales; the Pistyll Rhaeadr. Railway enthusiasts will find four amazing steam routes within a reasonable radius. Bird watchers have the RSPB reserve at lake Vyrnwy to check sightings and meet with other watchers. For those needing to unwind, there is a Harmony holistic therapy center just a few miles across the valley.
