Machynlleth house description

The property is situated 3 miles from Aberdyfi on the hillside overlooking the estuary. Otters, buzzards and red kites are all frequently seen from the terraces, and a wide array of waterfowl, waders, and seabirds are visitors at each low tide.

The Farmhouse & Gatehouse are set in grounds of 4 acres nesting in a valley next to the Dovey estuary. There are formal gardens shared by both properties with ornamental ponds. The farmhouse has a seperate private garden which is completey fenced making it 'dog proof'. The farmhouse has a roof terrace with views over the estuary and adjoining lake.

Interior and Grounds:
The Farmhouse
The Farmhouse has been refurbished to provide 5 star quality accommodation, having three reception rooms and three bedrooms, all well appointed and with en suite facilities. The adjoining lounge and dining room have beamed ceilings and the snug has a huge inglenook fireplace.

The lounge is furnished with luxurious leather sofas and a matching chair, coffee and side tables, a large TV with freeview, and a CD/DVD player.

The dining room has a large oak table with leather chairs and an oak bench so that twelve guests can be seated. Off the lounge is a conservatory overlooking the well established garden.

The kitchen is situated at the rear of the property and enjoys a south westerly aspect overlooking a private garden and has views of the estuary. It is fitted with Shaker style units and has a double oven, 5 burner halogen hob, dishwasher, microwave and a large American style fridge/freezer. A washing machine and a dryer have been installed in the utility area of the hall.

A welsh oak staircase leads to the first floor incorporating three double bedrooms overlooking the front garden with side views of the estuary, and all have en-suite facilities, each bathroom having a bath with shower above.

Two of the bedrooms have two zip and link beds that can be made up as a super-king and a king-size. The third bedroom has a king-size bed. There is also a sofa bed in the snug that can be made up upon request.

A decked terrace furnished with all weather rattan style sofas and a coffee table is accessed from the landing. This has wonderful views of the estuary and the neighbouring fishing lake.

The Gatehouse
The Gatehouse is a separate building at the entrance to the grounds, a short distance from the Farmhouse. It has a large open plan lounge/dining/kitchen area with a high vaulted ceiling, two bedrooms, spa bathroom, and a utility room with a separate toilet.

The luxury fitted kitchen has Shaker style units and is equipped with an electric oven, halogen hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and a microwave.

The dining area has an oak table and four chairs, and the lounge has a pebble flame effect electric fire, two luxurious leather sofas, a large TV, DVD player and CD player.

The downstairs bathroom is fully tiled and has a spa bath with shower over, toilet, washbasin and mirrored cabinet. There is a further toilet and hand basin in the utility room next to the bathroom that incorporates a washer/dryer.

The main bedroom is off the lounge and has a very comfortable double leather “sleigh” bed, bedside tables with lamps, a wardrobe and a dressing table with mirror.

The second bedroom, known as ??The Captain’s Room” as it has porthole windows, has two twin beds that can be zipped together to make a king-size bed upon request. There are two glass-fronted hanging cupboards, a chest of drawers with mirror and a bedside table. This is a very bright, sunny room as it has three velux windows, all with black-out blinds.

                                      About: Simply Chateau was set up in 2003 after two old school chums enjoyed a fantastic holiday with friends in a French chateau in the Dordogne. Oliver & Ravi, the two directors of the company, were amazed at what terrific value these stunning chateau rentals represented and decided to spread the word. Soon after the website was born. Today we deliver a wide range of luxury villas, private chateau and charming farmhouses throughout France, Italy, Spain, the UK and the Caribbean. We have something for everyone from charming manor houses representing great value for money to fully catered & serviced luxury chateau, all handpicked and chosen with care. Bookings are made direct with the owner of your chosen property to guarantee you get the best booking price available.
