The cottage was fully renovated in 2011 and now provides a welcoming home from home, with everything needed to make your stay comfortable and relaxing. This traditional stone semi-detached cottage is centrally located for both the mountains and the coast. The cottage is found in the quiet unspoilt Machno valley just 4 miles from well known Betws-y-Coed, with its wealth of tourist facilities, gear shops, pubs and restaurants. There is a welcoming real ale pub within walking distance as well as a wealth of exhilarating outdoor pursuits within easy reach, including walking and climbing, a choice of well-known mountain bike trails, excellent canoeing, bird watching, horse riding and golf.

At a gentler pace, you can explore the famous Swallow Falls or board a steam train for spectacular views. To the south are the coastal attractions of the LLyn Peninsula, include the celebrated Italianate village of Portmeirion, the harbour town of Portmadog and the famous Black Rock Sands. To the north visit the Great Orme with its many attractions including a ski slope, tramway and cable car, not to mention the beaches and Victorian pier of Llandudno. To the west lies the Snowdonia mountain ranges with Caernarfon and Anglesey beyond whilst to the east can be found the town of Llangollen with its famous Eisteddfod and the awe inspiring Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, a World Heritage Site.
