Machynlleth cottage description

This pretty stone cottage, built in the 1860's, is in the lovely village of Abergynolwyn, which was featured in the BBC TV program ' Weatherman Walking'. Abergynolwyn nestles in the beautiful Dysynni valley, and is surrounded by the spectacular Snowdonia National Park scenery. The cottage has a lounge with open fire, dining room, kitchen, restroom, two bedrooms, and a bathroom, and has a pretty garden and parking at the front and rear. The Railway Inn which serves excellent food, is only a two minute walk away, as is the village cafe /post office. It is perfectly situated for both valley and mountain walking - there is a river- side walk directly from the cottage, and Cader Idris is only a ten minute drive away. Tal-y-Llyn lake is just 10 min away, ideal for fly fishing. There is a Tal y llyn steam train station in the Village, Dolgoch falls and the coast at Tywynn and Aberdovey are only short drive away, offering great beaches and a range of water sports.

The cottage has just been refurbished and offers comfortable and cosy accommodation.
