Description

Llety Hiriaeth offers spacious, cosy accommodation for self catering in Mid Wales and is set on a working organic farm near Machynlleth. With its own beautiful gardens and babbling brook it is tastefully furnished in keeping with the traditional Welsh farmhouse. Peaceful and secluded, it offers a place for total relaxation – yet is conveniently near to the sea at Aberdyfi, the glorious mountains of Snowdonia and many local activities. The perfect farmhouse holiday.

Ground Floor

The main door of the farmhouse leads in to a large, welcoming hall. From the hall you can enter two lounges, the kitchen, the pantry and access upstairs. At the end of the hall there is the front door which leads into a small conservatory.

The farmhouse has 3 large and comfortable lounges, one with a wood-burner in the inglenook with its original bread-oven. The first and second lounges also have freeview TV and DVD players. The third lounge serves as a reading lounge where you can read or relax in total peace.

The Welsh traditional oak farmhouse kitchen with its dining area is located in the old part of the house and is accessed from the main hall down a step. It is well equipped with the usual array of crockery and kitchen utensils. There is an electric cooker, microwave and - as you would expect from a traditional farmhouse holiday - a lovely oil-fired Aga.

The kitchen leads into the carpeted lounge with its inglenook and woodburner. The pantry with its slate floor is located on the main level of the house and has a fridge and freezer. The utility with its washing machine and tumble dryer is located up some steps from the kitchen.

Ground floor shower room with WC and wash basin.

Perfect!Christine from Tyne And Wear - 4th June 2018
Family long weekend at late notice.
we enjoyed Aberdyfi for the beach, Precipice walk at Dolgellau and Lake Vyrnwy is beautiful.Ian - 30th August 2017
Lovely spacious and well equipped property with everything we needed. Big rooms but a cosy atmosphere. Trip into Aberystwyth and beach at Aberdyfi are a must. Lake Vyrnwy is stunning and a must visit, you can hire cycles to ride around it.Denise from Kent - 23rd July 2017
​Aduniad ffrindiau. Ty mawr gwych. Hollol lan. Gardd hyfryd. Diolch am y berl yma o dŷ. Gobeithio cawn gyfle i ddod yn ôl. Digon o lefydd i gerdded
Friends reunion. Excellent large house. Spotlessly clean. Lovely garden. Rhank you for this gem of a house. Hopefully we'll get the chance to retun. Plenty of places to go walking.
Tips and reccommendations: Glanyrafon Pennal - otherside of Machynlleth. Lovely meal and welcoming.
No tourist info centre in Machynlleth so you need to google beforehand.
Ruth o Gaerfyrddin/from Carmarthen - 8th May 2017
A traditional farm setting with all modern conveniences, spotlessly clean, great facilities in a stunning location. Walks from door.
Recommends: Chip Shop in MachLiz from Manchester - 3rd May 2017
