Great for large families or group of friends. Good sized rooms and comfortable. Hot tub a great feature.

Mrs T,

We stayed at Plas Rhwilas for a long weekend in October. It was absolutely brilliant from start to finish. The host met us there to give us keys and to show us around. The house is really large. All of the bedrooms were a great size and had incredible views. The hot tub is huge and fit all 10 of us in it at the same time and the view from the garden/hot tub was absolutely magical. We did walks directly from the house which were incredible. There are some nice local pubs in Machynlleth and the Black Lion is about a 5 minute walk away. I would 100% recommend this property to anyone- it was absolutely fantastic!

Miss H,


Plas Rhiwlas is a family run home from home situated in the picturesque surroundings of the Dyfi estuary. This large accommodation with hot tub facilities is set within its own private grounds, within walking distance to the lovely village pub / restaurant in Derwenlas. It offers panoramic views that extends naturally from the bottom of your garden.

Set in an elevated position, it is also just 1.5 miles from the vibrant and historic market town of Machynlleth. Known as the Ancient Capital of Wales, it offers an abundance of quirky shops, restaurants, cafés and takeaways along with a range of amenities such a supermarket, garages, banks etc. It is also home to the oldest street market in Britain every Wednesday and MOMA Wales, a showcase of modern Welsh art. A walking / cycling route leads directly from the village of Derwenlas to Machynlleth.

There are plenty of good eating establishments in the area, including Black Lion on your doorstep, the Pizzeria and Bistro Number 21 in Machynlleth and Glan yr Afon and Y Garth in Pennal (6 miles). It is also worth mentioning Sea Breeze restaurant in Aberdyfi (12 miles) and for some fine dining, the Michelin star restaurant at Ynyshir. There are good local pubs as well, including the White Lion in Machynlleth with a range of good ale.

Plas Rhiwlas is close to beautiful beaches, the university town of Aberystwyth and is an ideal location to visit the delights of Snowdownia National Park and the Ceredigion coast. Some of the main attractions nearby include Ynys Hir RSBP Reserve (recently televised ‘Springwatch’ location), the Centre for Alternative Technology and King Arthur’s Labyrinth (an underground adventure). The Dyfi Osprey Project and Tal-y-llyn steam railway also offer good days out and for something totally different; why not venture to Blaenau Ffestiniog for some zip wire and Bounce Below adventure.
