Reviews

Beautiful cottage in stunning surroundings. Very clean and cosy and everyone loved the hot tub!Friends from Aberdare - 4th July 2017

Thank you for your lovely house, the rooms were very comfortable. We had a lovely time in the hot tub. We’ve spent a lovely week, driving around the area, walking in the woods, enjoying the view. Thank you again and hope we see you again!

Teofil Andreica - Watford - 4th January 2017

Thank you for a lovely stay, the rooms were lovely and beds comfortable. We enjoyed using the hot tub and felt very relaxed during our stay. It was also nice to find lots of homely items around the place such as books, DVD’s and the X-box which was a hit with the kids!
Thank you again!

Set in private, extensive landscaped gardens and surrounded by farmland, Llety Morben offers a convenient, easy to access location near Machynlleth in Mid Wales. Shared only with the owners who live next door, it provides the perfect setting for anyone wishing to switch off and enjoy complete relaxation in peaceful surroundings. It also offers the benefit of being very central and within a short distance of many amenities and attractions, including the Osprey Centre and Machynlleth, the Ancient Capital of Wales which hosts the oldest street market in Britain every Wednesday.

Your holiday home with hot tub facilities is also within half a mile of the Black Lion in Derwenlas - a lovely village pub that serves great food. An additional 2 miles (along the walking / cycling route if you wish) brings you to Machynlleth itself. Here you will find an abundance of quirky shops, restaurants, cafés and takeaways along with a range of amenities such a supermarket, garages, banks etc. Machynlleth is also home to MOMA Wales (a showcase of modern Welsh art) and provides the southern gateway to Snowdonia National Park.

Amongst the other recommended restaurants in the area are the Pizzeria, Wynnstay Arms and Bistro Number 21 in Machynlleth and Glan yr Afon and Y Garth in Pennal (7 miles). It is also worth mentioning Sea Breeze restaurant in Aberdyfi (13 miles) and for some fine dining, the Michelin star restaurant at Ynyshir. Llety Morben is also close to the university town of Aberystwyth and is an ideal location to explore the coast and amazing beaches along Cardigan Bay. Some of the other 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).

Tal-y-llyn steam railway also offers a good day out and for something totally different; why not venture to Blaenau Ffestiniog for some zip wire and Bounce Below adventure. Other recommendations include a walk up Cadair Idris, visiting the Mawdwch estuary, the National Library of Wales, camera obscura and sea front at Aberystwyth and the World Heritage Site of Harlech Castle. To experience a festival atmoshphere in Machynlleth, book your holiday to coincide with the Comedy Festival in May, El Sueno Music Festival in August or the Machynlleth Lantern Procession at the end of October.
