Machynlleth farmhouse description

Bryn Clefion Hall is steeped in history and tradition and was once the hub of a bustling rural community. Situated on the banks of the River Clefion in the valleys of the Cambrian Mountains the house languishes in its own gardens including an arboretum. The hall has been tastefully refurbished recently in a manner sympathetic to the age of the property. There are five spacious bedrooms at Bryn Clefion all of which are en-suite and many with roll top baths. The large dining room, capable of seating at least 14 guests, is the perfect place for entertaining, and the roaring log fire in the adjacent sitting room adds to the atmosphere. The large, well equipped kitchen has a slate floor, kitchen table and an AGA, providing the ideal place for guests to prepare food and enjoy a leisurely breakfast or informal meal.

Living & Dining Room: In the light and airy living room the focal point has to be the wonderful stone fireplace with an array of comfortable sofas and chairs surrounding it. Beautiful oak furniture, Indian rugs, sporting prints and soft decoration make this a warm and cosy place to be, ideal for families and evening entertainment. In the large dining room opposite another stone fireplace make its mark, but this time the large and grand oak dining table, with matching oak and leather chairs, takes priority. This is the perfect place to entertain surrounded by all you family and friends in a wonderfully relaxing environment.

Kitchen & Fine Food: With large slate flagstones covering the floors and a four-oven AGA at one side, there is a truly Welsh feel about the kitchen. It has built in units and a breakfast bar, together with a small table, ideal for breakfasts, high-teas and informal meals. There is also an electric hob and oven, microwave, dish washer, washing machine, fridge and a freezer. So there can be no excuses for anything but fine food coming from the kitchen!

Alternatively, the Brigands Inn, with its commended menu and wine list, is just a short stroll down the road!

Out lying Area : The mountains, rivers and coastline nearby are well worth exploring, and there are plenty of activities on offer for the more adventurous such as hiking, mountain biking, fishing, and horse riding. For those who are looking for a more moderate pace, the hall’s large well stocked gardens are perfect for a gentle stroll, enabling you to view the dramatic scenery.

                                  The house is in a rural location; however, it sits on the edge of the Mallwyd village and near by Dinas Mawddwy. There is a small shop and post office in the village as well as the Brigands Inn. Not too far away are the market towns of Machynlleth and Dolgellau. Anyone wishing to indulge themselves in beautiful, peaceful surroundings will not be disappointed.
