The property

This thoughtfully renovated, semi-detached traditional stone cottage is nestled in an elevated position, overlooking the pretty wooded valley on the outskirts of Commins Coch, just a short drive from the thriving and busy market town of Machynlleth.

This delightful cottage is a perfect base for families or friends looking to relax in the peaceful countryside, yet being close to a popular town and just a short drive from fabulous sandy beaches or majestic mountains.

Set over two floors, with a traditional narrow stairway, there are two cosy bedrooms, plus the family shower room on the first floor.

Downstairs there is a well-equipped kitchen with dining area and comfortable sitting room with warming solid-fuel stove, perfect for warming your toes on cooler evenings.

Outside, you can sit on the patio in the terraced garden with lovely views across the tree-lined hills, enjoy an early morning coffee or plan the adventures of the day ahead.

You are ideally placed to explore the Snowdonia National Park which opens up just eight miles away, giving fantastic opportunities to walk along serene lakes or trek some of the formidable peaks such as Cadair Idris.

The area offers numerous outdoor activities such as wildlife watching; why not take a trip to either the Dyfi Osprey Project or the RSPB Ynys Hir, a real haven for wildlife, just a 20 minute drive away?

There are ample opportunities for walking, cycling and horse trekking, or perhaps practice your swing at the championship golf course at Aberdovey.

There are so many options for local days out, you’ll be spoilt for choice.

Hop on board the train and enjoy a ride on the Tal-y-Llyn Railway, enjoy the sandy beaches of Aberdovey, explore the mountain town of Dolgellau, or the canalside at Newtown, all within a 30 minute drive.

Slightly further afield lies the coastal town of Aberystwyth, with its sweeping Victorian promenade and pier, or take a trip on the funicular railway to the camera obscura at the top of Constitution Hill.

This cosy traditional cottage is an ideal retreat at the end of a busy day, whatever you choose to do.
