  • "Had a fabulous stay at Tan Y Capel, everything you need for a very comfortable holiday."

    The cottage was clean and spacious. Our host left us some Welsh cakes and milk which was very welcome and he even called round to see us after we arrived. Close to Aberdovey which has a lovely beach where we took our dog, other beaches not far away too, plus woodland walks which we loved. Lots of places to visit, we stayed for 2 weeks and didn’t run out of things to do even in wet weather. Would highly recommend Tan Y Capel for a holiday.

    Hello Was great meeting you Property Owner

  • "A beautiful cottage, very well equipped and very clean."

    There are various local walks from the door and the village itself is quiet and peaceful. The owner popped around to check everything was ok for us and left us some milk and Welsh cakes which was thoughtful. Our dog enjoyed the secure garden and it was nice to wake up to the sound of birdsong. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

    Your welcome. Nice meeting you. Brychan Property Owner

  • "Tan y Capel is a beautifully renovated cottage in a pretty hamlet where peace and quiet are plentiful with milk in the fridge, tea/coffee and Welsh cakes awaiting."

    We’ve had a lovely time with our dog exploring many new areas of beautiful mid & north Wales which is surrounded by stunning scenery. We had organised a Morrisons delivery before we left which arrived with no problems and by a really friendly driver. The owner of the property Brychan popped by to meet us and as he’s local, he’s on hand for any issues. Would definitely recommend and will return to the lovely property.

    Your very welcome. Property Owner

Tucked away in the heart of the Welsh countryside in the hamlet of Bont Dolgadfan, is this renovated cottage, Tan Y Capel.

Relax and unwind in this tranquil location, which sleeps up to five guests and offers three off-road parking spaces.

Bring along your bike to explore your rural setting and you can keep your bike safe in the secure storage.

Be welcomed into the large living room with plenty of seating for the whole group and woodburning stove to curl up beside and savour a hot chocolate.

Step through to the contemporary kitchen/diner with everything you need for a self-catered stay including an electric oven and hob, microwave, as well as a washing machine and dishwasher for a fuss-free clean.

Enjoy mealtimes at the dining table or why not head outside onto the terraced garden for an alfresco affair?

After exploring the Welsh countryside, have a wash in the shower room under the 10 “rainfall whilst your towel keeps toasty on the heated rail.

There are two bedrooms to rest your head with a charming king-size and a family bedroom with a double and single bed.

Awaken with a cup of tea at the front of the property on the horseshoes shaped patio.

The Clywedog reservoir and the Severn River's source are approximately 8-10 miles apart and idyllic for a morning stroll.

Machynlleth and Llanidloes, both mediaeval towns, are perfect for history buffs looking to soak in the past.

Nestled in the heart of the Dyfi Valley, the charming town of Machynlleth is home to some of the most exciting attractions in the country.

The Dyfi Osprey Project is a must-see for nature lovers, and Falconry Experience Wales is a great way to learn more about Wales’s rich birdlife.

Number Twenty One is an acclaimed restaurant serving up fresh, locally sourced cuisine, and there are plenty of pubs and bars for a night out on the town.

Venture to the town of Llanidloes where The Bryntail Lead Mine Buildings and Llyn Clywedog Dam are just two of the amazing attractions that Llanidloes has to offer.

And when you need a break from all the sightseeing, The Unicorn Hotel is the perfect place to relax and enjoy a delicious meal.

Take a climb up Cadair Idris or Snowdon mountains to test your stamina, or venture to the coast to see the stunning shoreline.
