“Gorgeous base to explore from!” My partner and I visit west Wales regularly for it's amazing views, mountain biking, and walking. This was our first time staying at Craig Y Gronfa cottage, and I couldn't recommend it enough. We loved it!
The cottage was immaculate, well decorated, and just a beautiful space to stay in! Modern feeling but with beautiful original features, such as the old beams in the master suite. The views from every window are stunning! Gary had put the heating on for our arrival, so it was warm and cosy when we got there. Beautiful little wood stove in the living room, hope to make use of that on our next stay! The cottage was well kitted out, and we had everything we needed! It's the perfect location to go off and explore from! Only a ten minute drive to the beautiful town of Machynlleth, or fifteen minute drive in the opposite direction to Dolgellau. Easy distance to the beach- we went to Aberdyfi for the ice cream shop, but Ynyslas is equally if not more stunning! And only a twenty minute drive to Cadair Idris, one of my favourite mountain walks in Wales!
Gary was a fantastic host! He even gave us a big bowl of apples from his orchard!
Highly recommend spending a weekend here!
“Beautiful” The location is stunning. Gorgeous walks nearby and of course the seaside within half an hour’s drive. The cabin was great, set in lovely grounds. Our dog and son had a great time exploring, including the stream and ponds, sorry newts!
“Very comfortable and met all our needs” It was an ideal location for tourists who like outdoor life - great walks and beautiful countryside. The cottage was very comfortable and in a very peaceful location. Nearby the local pub The Brigand supplied beautiful meals to end a lovely day. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to our friends.
