    Easy and short journey times to several beaches and other stunning locations. Owners are responsive if needed and accommodating to our late arrival time. Hot Tub was perfectly placed to enjoy the views in complete privacy with the cottage having all the required facilities and beautifully clean. Can’t recommend highly enough.

    The cottage is very clean and well appointed. Everything needed for a weeks holiday is provided. The hot tub was also very clean. There are lots of good walks nearby over the hills or through woodland and a supermarket 4 miles away in Machynlleth. There is an electric car charger 18 miles away in Aberystwyth.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback so happy that you had a lovely time, but we actually have car chargers in the car park in Machynlleth, I will have to note this in the guest book xxx Property Owner

    The house is beautiful, and the story of the renovation of the house is fabulous. Everything has been done to such a high standard. There’s zero phone signal anywhere in or near the house if you’re with EE, but the Wi-Fi is ok so don’t have to be completely cut off unless you want to be. The rooms are gorgeous and the beds are so comfy. The setting is absolutely idyllic. I’ve recommended this home to all of my friends and will definitely be back! There was a lovely touch of a bottle of bubbly waiting for us when we arrived and sitting in the hot tub while the sun rises with only sheep for company is the best way to start the day.

  • "Excellent cottage, superb location."

    Very helpful owner. Very clean and well-equipped, although could have been better organised as far as the supply and storage of essential items was concerned. This is an old miner's cottage, superbly located and sympathetically converted. However not ideal for people of limited mobility, due to steep indoor staircase and difficulty manoeuvring baggage and other items indoors and between car and cottage. During our stay, we learned that the owners also had alternative nearby properties, all on one level, which would have been more suitable for us.

    Our first visit was during last Autumn and we decided to see what it would be like there during the Spring. The cottage was just as wonderful as our first visit. Bethan was the same exceptional host as last time. But on this occasion we had the added pleasures of watching new born lambs in the neighbouring fields, the countryside festooned with loads of daffodils and some pretty amazing weather! Bryndan is a magical place. I wonder what it's like in the Summer?!

We loved the Hot tub with its lovely views and the log burner. The garden was perfect for our dog as it is fully enclosed, but may not be for smaller dogs.

The property

Machynlleth 5 miles.

This former worker's cottage dates back to the 1820s and is situated in the rolling hills of the Powys countryside.

Five miles from the market town of Machynlleth and 1 mile from the nearest neighbours, you have all the privacy you need to completely relax at this gorgeous property.

Marvellously combining period features with modern touches, Bryndan is an ideal stay for groups of friends or family seeking a relaxing getaway, or perhaps an adventure-filled outdoor break.

The sitting room is the perfect retreat after a day of walking, dominated by an Inglenook fireplace with a woodburning stove, whilst wooden beams painted in modern greys offer a homely feel whilst you watch your favourite shows on the Smart TV.

Head through into the refreshing kitchen/diner, lined with cream coloured units, whilst a lovely dining table is set for four of you to gather around and enjoy a hearty home-cooked meal.

To discover Bryndan's two glorious bedrooms, head to the first floor and choose between a super king-size and a twin room, both with quirky, rustic beams and Smart TVs.

In between the two rooms, separated by a spacious landing area, sits the contemporary bathroom with a bath and a separate shower.

This historic getaway's excellent features continue outside, where you’ll find a wonderfully landscaped garden with a lawn and gravel area boasting a hot tub with the most astounding views of the encompassing Welsh hills.

Alternatively, stroll around the 10 acres of woodland available to you.

Take the scenic drive into Machynlleth, a pretty market town providing a choice of shops, pubs and cafés, as well as attractions such as the Museum of Modern Art, the Machynlleth Clock Tower and Owain Glyndwr's Parliament House.

The other side of the town lies the imposing Snowdonia National Park which offers incredible outdoor opportunities for you thrill-seekers.

The coast is also within easy reach, with the popular Aberystwyth and Aberdovey beach, certainly worth a day trip.

A unique, heart-warming getaway to be enjoyed all-year-round.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
