A newly refurbished and extended cottage, directly overlooking the tidal River Dovey (a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve), and just down the road from Dyfi Osprey project and overlooking the edge of the Ynyshir nature reserve. The house sits on the A487 , 4 miles from the town of Machynlleth, and 10 miles from Aberystwyth. The coastal town of Borth is just just 8 miles.

Le logement
I renovated this cottage over the course of 2 years, having been derelict and not lived in for some 30 years. Some work had already begun, but it has been a labor love and frustration in parts turning it around and getting it to the place it is today.
The downside is it is on a road, but the views across the estuary and across to the Southern Snowdonia Mountains mean you soon forget about that, whilst sat on the sofa or even in bed. Being mid wales the roads aren't that busy and it goes very quiet early evening.

The house has been converted with luxury in mind. The huge sofa overlooking the valley is extremely comfortable and a great place to sit back and relax in the evening and make use of the the home cinema system. The house also has a Bose Wave Hifi system. The open plan kitchen off the dining room and lounge is well equipped, with two ovens, microwave, wine fridge, american fridge freezer with ice maker, plate warming draw, pop corn maker, bread machine and Nespresso coffee machine and dishwasher.

Machynlleth, Pays de Galles, Royaume-Uni

With the mountains of southern Snowdonia to the north and the Cambrian hills to the south, the Ynys-hir reserve is stunning whichever way you look. Summer brings wading birds, such as lapwings and redshanks. Come the colder months, ducks and geese move in.

There are plenty of activities to do in the area. Some initial suggestions include:
Place to visit...

Aberdovey (lovely little coastal town with a long beach) where you can walk dogs. There are few shops and pubs. It’s just over the Estuary but a 10 minute journey by train along the beautiful Cambrian line from Dovey Junction station (the path to which is opposite the cottage).

Elan Valley (a series of reservoirs). I’d recommend going there by taking the mountain road from Machynlleth to Llanidloes.

Devils Bridge (a walk down a valley with cascading waterfalls just about everywhere you look). You can either drive or get the Vale of Rheidol Steam Railway from Aberystwyth.

Barmouth (coastal town much larger than Aberdovey. I’d recommend on a nice day getting teh train or going by car and stopping/parking at the Morfa Mawddach train station on the opposite side of the estuary from Barmouth and walk in across the footpath that runs alongside the train line over the estuary.

Cycling or walking the Mawddach Estuary from Dolgellau that takes you to Barmouth. It’s amazing scenery and 9.5 miles each way but is completely flat and not a road in sight, oh, and there is a pub half way.

Cors Dyfi Osprey Reserve
Just down the road from the cottage (less than a mile). Even if you have no interest in Ospreys it is very well put together. A long walkway takes you through the reed beds up to a huge new look out centre. Water Buffalos graze the reed beds. It’s not open all year though so you will need to check.

Sand Dunes and Beech at Ynyslas
Ynyslas is a particularly attractive stretch of Mid Wales coastline that provides quite a contrast to the stony beaches at Aberystwyth.
Situated a short drive north of Borth, the Ynyslas National Nature Reserve is dominated by an ever-changing sand dune landscape, which is home to an array of rare plants and wildlife, including colourful orchids early in the summertime. You may also see creatures such as lizards and wading birds in the area.
With views inland and across the estuary to Aberdovey, Ynyslas is a great spot for walking or relaxing with waymarked boardwalks, trails through the dunes and a visitor centre open from Easter till September that has more information about the plants and wildlife of the area.

Cadir Idris
Claimed to be the second most popular mountain in Wales for walkers, and my favourite, and just 20 mins by car from the cottage! I’d recommend the Minffordd path which is also the closest the cabin.

Ynys-hir RSPB Nature Reserve
A lovely reserve, right on the edge of the estuary and where BBC’s Spring Watch was filmed and just over a mile from the cottage.

Eating Out

Number Twenty One on the main high street in Machynlleth is highly recommended in trip advisor reviews and is a small brassiere style restaurant.

Riverside Hotel, Pennal, Machynlleth. Pennal is on the road to Aberdovey and comes again highly recommended.

The Black Lion on the road out of Machynlleth towards Aberystwyth also is highly recommended in trip advisor reviews is and I’m told is good for traditional pub grub.

Sea Breaze (Fish Restaurant, Aberdovey). Great food, local produce and a relaxed atmosphere.

The Cross Foxes outside of Dolgellau is a modern pub restaurant serving great food but is some 10 miles from the lodge.

Hennighan’s Top Shop (Fish and Chip Takeaway), Machynlleth. Found at the top of the high street – it is always busy and award winning.

Home is in the Cotswolds and work is in Hampshire. That combined with my holiday home in Wales means that I spend more time than I would like on the road. I purchased the cottage mid 2014 and have just completed the refurbishment after 12 long months. Being new to owning an old property it became clear that it would benefit from frequent rather than infrequent use, hence my decision to let it out to other guests who will hopefully enjoy the cottage as much as I do. I now can’t wait to start enjoying some of the outdoor activities that this great part of Wales has to offer.

Pendant votre séjour
I live a long way from the cottage, so access will be via a keysafe. I have a local housekeeper and her husband who can help if there are any problems, but my intention is to not interfere and allow guests an uninterrupted stay,
