Machynlleth house description

TAKE A DEEP BREATH AND ENJOY THE VIEWS!

Whether you are looking to get away from it all or plan to climb all of the peaks that Wales has to offer, Maesywerngoch is the perfect base for your party. Tucked into the Dovey Forest with no neighbouring properties and sitting in 3 acres of landscaped gardens, waterfalls and ponds Maesywerngoch is an idyllic destination in itself.

'We have just completed a week's stay at this beautiful house and felt truly privileged to have been allowed there with our three labradors. We wanted complete seclusion and couldn't have asked for better, as we climbed the hill to the house.' Claire, February 2014.

A wall of glass doors in both the old barn and dining room provide stunning views of the forest and gardens. Star gazing on a clear night is breathtaking with no light pollution to dull your senses. Enjoy bird watching? The bird tables outside the dining room provide hours of entertainment watching the many varieties of birds including woodpeckers, finches and tits.

MAESYWERNGOCH IS A TRULY UNIQUE PROPERTY.

This 300 year old renovated Welsh Longhouse provides plenty of space for your party to spread out and enjoy the many amenities this house provides. Enjoy the crisp white 100% cotton sheets and towels in our 6 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms as well as complimentary bath and shower soap.

At Maesywerngoch we will supply you with all of the ingredients for an amazing holiday: wood burning stoves in each of our sitting rooms and free firewood. Free WiFi, two 46 in LED TV's with SKY HD, Pillar Box Red AGA, delicious fresh water from our own bore hole, card table and plenty of games and puzzles to keep everyone happy.

WHO SHOULD HOLIDAY AT MAESYWERNGOCH?

Anyone who enjoys mountain biking, hill walking, golf, fishing, bird watching, the beach at Aberdovey, cooking, getting away from it all, and family reunions to name just a few.

If mountain biking is your passion bring your bikes and cycle through our forest on Route 8, you won't be disappointed.

'All you need for a fabulous holiday at Maesywerngoch is a handful of friends, although a crowd will do nicely too. This gorgeous house and Wales will provide the rest......'Leslie, July 2013.

Don't worry if you get rained on or a bit muddy while out on a walk or cycle ride, we provide a drying cupboard as well as a Bosch washing machine and dryer. The large wet room with underfloor heating adds a warming touch.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1976

                  About the owner: Maesywerngoch has been a favorite holiday location for friends and family for the last 30 years. We come here to relax and enjoy the quiet location, pottering in the local villages, crabbing from the pier at Aberdovey and cooking wonderful meals using Welsh products in our beautiful Pillar Box Red AGA.

                  Why the Owner Chose Machynlleth:
                  This longhouse has been passed down from one generation to the next.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We are in a rural location so enjoy the natural beauty. Walking is a favorite pastime here and there are many enjoyable walks from the front door. Picking blackberries and star gazing are just some of the relaxing activities to be enjoyed.
