  • "This lovely cottage was cosy and provided all the facilities you could want."

    Plenty of space and a really comfy bed. WiFi was upgraded during our stay and did improve our signal. We received a warm welcome and the recommendation to go to Barmouth made for a super day. Just 10 mins walk to the station (using shortcut through Brickfield St). We went to Aberystwyth and Barmouth on the train which worked really well. Drove to Aberdovey and Borth. All trips were excellent. Must recommend Myrddins Tap in Barmouth for beer and food, Kanes Bar in Aberystwyth for cider. Excellent lamb shank in White Lion and brisket roast in Red Lion, both Machynlleth. Market day was busy with some great buys. We were very lucky having glorious weather so holiday couldn't have been better.

  • "It was a beautifully clean welcoming cottage."

    The owners were friendly and very helpful. We had a problem with the bed which had been broken previously and was very uncomfortable but they replaced it the next day. No problem at all. Lovely area outside to sit and admire the view, sheltered and sunny For most of our stay. Easy walk up into town, private parking by the cottage too. Easy to go either to the beaches or up the hills for a day out. Very good holiday.

  • "Brickfield Cottage is a beautifully presented cottage with everything supplied for a great holiday."

    The owners were friendly and welcoming and full of useful information about the locality. The location is superb with beautiful views out to the hills while being only a couple of hundred yards form the centre of this lovely little market town. The main street has a wide choice of independent shops, restaurants an tea shops. A perfect centre for a walking holiday and for exploring the towns and villages of the nearby coast. We shall definitely return.

The property

This wonderful semi-detached cottage is attached to the owner’s home and is located in the small, peaceful market town of Machynlleth, a two minute walk from the town’s amenities.

This character property offers cosy accommodation with lovely views of the surrounding countryside and is ideal for families or friends looking to explore this area of Wales.

With the train and bus station only a five minute walk away you may even choose to leave the car behind.

This cottage has been beautifully-appointed by the owners with lovely attention to detail throughout.

You step into the comfortable lounge with its red brick fireplace and slate hearth which houses an electric woodburner-effect fire, the perfect place to curl up and relax together after a busy day of exploring.

A step leads from here into the contemporary, well-equipped kitchen with everything you need to rustle up a delicious meal which can be shared together around the dining table.

There is a separate utility room which houses a washing machine and an additional basin and WC for your convenience.

Upstairs on the first floor is the beautifully-appointed king-size double bedroom, also on this floor is the modern family bathroom which has both a bath for easing those aching muscles after a day of exploring and a separate invigorating shower.

A steep narrow turned staircase leads up to the second floor twin eaves bedroom, a cosy retreat for the children.

To the outside of the property there is a delightful enclosed courtyard patio where you can relax with a refreshing drink as you gaze across the owner’s fields to the hills beyond and the children will enjoy talking to the owner’s pony.

Machynlleth, also known as the ancient capital of Wales offers family-run cafes, restaurants and several take-aways.

The local leisure centre is only a five minute walk away complete with indoor swimming pool, and for art lovers the MOMA (Museum of Modern Art ) is also within walking distance.

There is something for everyone in this area with walkers being well-catered for with the Glyndwr’s Way on the doorstep, the Dyfi Valley Way nearby or for those seeking a mountain challenge why not head into the Snowdonia National Park and climb Cadair Idris?

Mountain bikers have a choice of routes within the Dyfi Forest, or slightly further afield the well-known Coed-y-Brenin beckons, or the Mawddach Trail which offers cycling for all ages and is suitable for wheelchair users and walkers alike.

The River Dyfi is easily accessible and offers excellent fishing for brown trout, salmon and sea trout, and for watersports enthusiasts the lake at Clwyedog six miles away is open to all non-powered water craft.

If you wish to practice your swing there are several golf courses nearby from 9-hole to 18-hole courses.

An excellent property in an area that offers something for everyone.
