Had to call the owner three times for . instructions otherwise a most enjoyable stay. We would like to point out that guests are asked to contact us 48 hours before they go so that we can explain access to them. This gentleman did not ring until he was outside the property so we had not discussed it with him. Having said this we are always very happy to help if anyone does have problems and calls us. Property Owner Reviewed by IanSep 2021 "We enjoyed the isolated, rural location." Good location for exploring central Wales. Car essential - no walk opportunities directly from the cottage. Top of stairs slightly awkward, and the landing light was not working. The sofa was not comfortable. Reviewed by RobinAug 2021 "A really lovely homely cottage in a beautiful part of the world!" Reviewed by MarionAug 2021 "Lovely cosy cottage." Well equipped . Felt like home Reviewed by DonnaOct 2019 "The cottage was a nice place to relax and good point to go out from." Weather was damp but we never let this get us down. Fantastic watching the river raise and fall due to rain from mountains. All rooms were lovely and you felt at home straight away. Overall a lovely place for my wife and myself, Opps not forgetting Ben the hound. Thank You Reviewed by DavidSep 2019 "Good value for money." Only downside was that we were unable to walk locally from the cottage as the access road was a busy very fast road with no pavement. Reviewed by GavinSep 2019 "A well equipped cottage." Everything, hot water, fridge, freezer, heating, TV etc functioned fine. It was clean and tidy and the garden was secure for the dogs. Not the nicest drive to get out of especially turning left but OK with care. Would recommend. Reviewed by GeorgeSep 2019 "A well placed hideaway (with pleasant occasional neighbour) down a steep driveway from the road by a stream." Ideal position for coast, mountains or town. A comfortable home from home with all the regular domestic utilities you would expect, including the all important Wi-FI. Would book again. Reviewed by JamesAug 2019 "Wonderful week in a wonderful cottage Did not want to go home!" ! Reviewed by NickolaJul 2019 "We went away with our Lakeland Terrier Teddy and he loved the garden, he could roam where he wanted to and then we would put him on his lead through the small gate and down to the stream." The Cottage itself is amazing, everything you could need, a complete home from home. Even getting up and down the steep drive was fun. Make sure you visit Aberdovey Beach, go on the steam train at Talyllyn Railway and the market at Machynlleth on a Wednesday, but most of all just sit outside listening to the stream watching the squirrels and relaxing. We will stay here again 5 stars. Jayne and Dave Reviewed by DavidJun 2019 "Despite the weather and not being able to get out much, the cottage was amazing with everything you needed in it." The cottage has a lovely secluded totally enclosed garden and a river at the bottom which gushes along happily and is such a soothing sound even at night. Loved the cottage, will def book here again Reviewed by NicoleJun 2019 "Super property well equipped, great location and grounds" Reviewed by LindaOct 2018 "Lovely cottage and really out of the way and secluded." Everything you need is there and comprehensive instruction folder for any questions you have. Owner very friendly and spoke to her before I went and she also text whilst I was there to check we were okay. Our doggie loved the enclosed garden. It is a bit hairy getting out of the drive, so would benefit from a mirror, but that’s the only problem I found! Just bliss! Reviewed by Carrie-annJun 2018 "The phone number you sent me was disconnected you need to up date your files." You couldn't sit and see the brook for stinging nettles so not quite like you described it. We had to take the rubbish up the drive on Tues evening the boxes were very heavy and not even are rubbish as only arrived on Monday. The cottage was comfy but a bit old fashioned and needed airing, but despite all this we had a lovely time plenty to see. Aberystwyth to Devil's Bridge to see the falls .Machynlleth market on weds, lovely meal in Number Twenty One Bistro. Powis Castle and Gardens well worth a visit a good day out. Then stopped at the Aleppo Merchant Inn for a meal lovely home made and delicious. Aberdyfi and Tywyn lovely beaches for walking and shell collecting. Stopped at the Dolgoch Falls lots of climbing but well worth it. Reviewed by JacquelineJun 2018 "We arrived at the property, it hadn't been aired it smelt like a musty caravan, dishes, cup's, cutlery had to be washed before we could use as inside cupboards haven't been cleaned in a while, the TV wasn't working so I contacted the owner who knew there was a problem and told us to bang the scart lead into the back of the TV as fixings not very good, I wasn't happy about this but did as asked by the owner, eventually the TV worked properly,after 2 hours of messing with it, the mini oven had grease in it I had to clean before using, the cottage is beautiful and the surrounding garden is beautiful, just needs a thorough clean between lettings." Reviewed by SusanMay 2018 "This is a lovely little cottage and I love the garden and brook that runs along the bottom." It is not too far from the amazing beaches of mid Wales at Barmouth, Tywyn and Aberdyfi and the nearest town of Machinleth is also very nice with a big Co op and some shops and nice pubs to eat in. We couldn't find any walks straight from the cottage and if you are a hiker be warned that we found that the local farmers blocked the rights of way. We got blocked right at the start of two walks we tried. One of which was in a book we purchased the day before. Otherwise though, a lovely place to visit and explore. Reviewed by Miss HAug 2017 "A lovely cottage." Highly recommended! Just a shame about the drive & no wifi. Other than that, I have no complaints. Reviewed by ClariceApr 2017 "We had a great, relaxing break at this cosy little cottage." As the cottage has no mobile signal, it would be fantastic if it could have wifi. Reviewed by RachaelApr 2017 "We liked walking on the beach at Aberdyfi." The train rides from tywyn & devils bridge walking up all the steps yes we will be back next year all being well? Do you have any cottages near Aberdyfi? we like to be near the beach Reviewed by JuneSep 2016 "Lovely cottage surrounded by a well kept large garden with lots of room to keep are dog happy." Good base if you are happy to drive for days out as no local areas to walk to. Driveway was not a steep as expected but found it easier to turn right and if you need to go left drive a bit further up the road and turn car around. Would certainly recommend this cottage as a place to stay.
