"A completely brilliant holiday"
The great thing about this place is the mix of comfort inside the house and its wonderful location. We were fortunate enough to visit when the weather was good and could combine playing outside in the really well kept garden with toddlers and taking them to the seaside (some members of our party actually swum!). We could only do short walks because of the kids, but clearly there are wonderful walks to be undertaken, according to the helpful information left by the owners. The views from just outside the house and from the dining room are breathtaking. The kitchen, bathrooms and bedrooms are all well equipped and finished to a luxurious standard - we even cooked in the unfamiliar Aga, guided by the helpful instructions left. Most of our evenings were spent in relaxed dining but there are TVs much larger than our own and games and puzzles provided if further relaxation is required. Shopping was easy in Machynlleth, about 6 miles away - the butcher as described provided really delicious meat and the market on Wednesday provided delicious fish and veg. It is worth taking some basics with you, but we found stuff such as tea and olive oil there. Though we went in the summer, we could imagine being holed up in poor weather as the house is so spacious (two large sitting rooms) and there are wood burning fires. Altogether a wonderful place.
We are pleased to hear that your party enjoyed both the house and the surrounding area. We will leave some blackberry picking containers for future visits!

"Fantastic and unique house in a stunning location"
This house was the perfect location for our family group ranging from age 3 to 80 years! The garden is ENORMOUS and a brilliant place for the children to explore and play in. It was like having our own private park! The location is very secluded up a long "bumpity bumpity track bang bang road" as our 3 year old put it, but it was still only a 20 minute drive to Aberdovey beach with its crabbing and playing in the sand. We also visited King Arthur's Labyrinth which is just down the road and well worth the money, and Coed y Brenin for mountain biking which was about a 40 minute drive away. My husband managed to find a mountain bike ride right from the house and doing the 3 mile run up the track is a good form of exercise!
The house itself had everything we needed - ample bedrooms, bathrooms and lounge areas, including loads of games and books for the kids and a kitchen with everything you could need. We didn't use the log burners but I imagine it would be a very cosy place to stay in winter with the burners lit and the Aga cooking dinner..! We loved watching the birds - especially the woodpecker - visiting the bird table every morning. We'd love to go back again one day and can't recommend Maesywerngoch enough.
We are so pleased that you enjoyed your time at Maesywerngoch and the surrounding area and gardens.
Yes, the road can be a bit bumpy at times! We have been on to the Forestry Commission and hope they will come out and fill in some of the pot holes soon. We look forward to your next visit. Susan
