Very nicely renovated with attention paid to quality and lots of lovely details. It’s certainly set the bar rather higher than usual for our next holiday! There was excellent communication with the owner and his team, and an extremely well thought out manual for the property as well as a lovely welcome pack. The Brigands Inn is two minutes walk away and we had a nice meal there. There’s a very good cafe called Ty Cemaes 4 miles down the road, the Ffestiniog Railway at Porthmadog, Zipworld and Deep Slate Mine Tours, The Centre for Alternative Technology at Mach’, and of course, the fabulous Portmeirion. We had a lovely time and thoroughly recommend this property. Reviewed by Georgie5.0★Sep 2023 "Absolutely beautiful cottage." .well equipped and really well refurbished.

Once the village's post office, Yr Hen Bost has been sympathetically-restored, mixing both original beamed ceilings, slate windowsills, and stable doors, with state-of-the-art appliances and stylish furnishings, offering a wonderful base for a family break to the Snowdonia National Park. Park up off-road and take in the far-reaching, hillside vistas encompassing your new abode. Head indoors to be greeted by the inviting sitting room, complete with wooden flooring, plush seating, and a rustling woodburning stove to light on cooler evenings, offering a relaxing space to unwind with a good book. Locate the fully-equipped, farmhouse style kitchen/diner, oozing character with a feature AGA and exposed brickwork on show; use this space to prepare and enjoy meals as a family, whilst on the lower-ground-floor, you'll locate a handy utility. Spend the evening in the external games room, complete with a dart board, pool table, air hockey table, and foosball table, also offering space to store your outdoor gear after a day of hiking, cycling or kayaking. Catch some rest from one of the three delightfully-presented bedrooms, including a double with TV and a sleek en-suite shower room, a further double with a desk for homeworking, and a lovely king-size. Head into the village to stock up on the essentials or to dine out at The Brigands Inn pub, a firm favourite in the local area, before taking to the nearby countryside, exploring the Abercorris North Wales Wildlife Trust Nature Reserve, and the Corris Cavern Mines, also home to the Dyfi Distyllery. The market town of Machynlleth is a car journey away, home to further independent shops and lovely eateries, along with The Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) and the Dyfi Osprey Project, whilst outdoor enthusiasts will relish in the chance to summit the nearby mountain range, including Penygader (Cadair Idris), and Yr Wyddfa itself (Snowdon). The region is brimming with rural walking trails and secluded beauty spots, worth adding to your itinerary, from hikes across the Precipice Walk route, to strolls alongside RSPB Llyn Vyrnwy and Rhiwagor Waterfall, or for a fun-filled afternoon, make the longer but worthwhile trip towards Zip World Llechwedd, offering something for all of the family.
