Reviews

Beautiful scenic area. Cottage in a lovely quiet location, very characterful

Mrs E,

We enjoyed our stay at this lovely well equipped cottage! It's in an ideal location for visits to the beach, the steam railway and the Mach loop. Machynlleth is a short drive away where you will find a large Co-op for supplies and also few take aways and pubs. Highly recommended, we will be staying again.

Miss M,

Miss Angela W,

I didn't need to buy anything other than food! Everything was catered for.

Mr Mike N,
