The cottage is located at the confluence of two river valleys - the Fachdre and the Afon Twmyn.. The site was originally a flour mill and grinding stones from the original mill are located within the woodland garden. Relax on the decked terrace with a glass of wine and listen to birds singing and the stream trickling past. Keep a watch for the red kite overhead or the dipper in the river, nuthatch, tree creepers and great spotted woodpeckers are regularly seen in the garden and pied flycatchers nest here each year.

An exceptionally spacious, comfortable & well equipped cottage in a beautiful, tranquil location. Lovely furnishing & high quality appliances, every amenity thought of with care.
An idyllic spot with balcony overlooking the stream.listening to birds & watching wildlife. Easy access to Llanidloes, a stunning mountain drive to Machynlleth. So much to see & do in the surrounding area.
A lovely place that I have no hesitation in revisiting & would most certainly recommend to friends.

"Tranquillity and plenty to explore."
The accommodation is of a high standard and fits into its surroundings beautifully. We ate breakfast on the balcony with the gentle sound of the stream below, whilst watching an amazing variety of birds. Birdwatchers hardly need leave the property. The village is quiet. Natives congregate by the phone box where they can get mobile phone reception. The surrounding countryside is well worth exploring. We explored around Llyn Clwedog including old lead mine workings, and the lovely town of Llanidloes. Machynlleth with it's useful CoOp shop and easy parking is not far away. We visited the Alternative Technology Centre nearby, and used the railway to get to Aberystwyth. It suited us down to the ground.
Thanks for your comprehensive review. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay. Binoculars are provided at the cottage so that you can get a good view of the varied bird species that are in the grounds. Mobile Phone reception is best if you have Orange network reception. Other networks are not obtainable in the local vicinity.
Many thanks Sue & Malcolm
