Getting around

This is a rural area so a car is recomended, its a great location for cyclists and ramblers. Nearest station is at Caersws or Machynlleth. From Machynlleth you can purchase a day rail rover ticket to explore the north Wales coast at very reasonable cost - the views are stunning from the train

“A hidden gem”

Reviewed 30 Oct 2017

Lovely well presented, well equipped property. Very warm and comfortable. Spotlessly clean and an array of extras to make your stay special. Bird watching was mesmerising.

“Fantastic accommodation and peaceful location.”

Reviewed 23 Jul 2016

This was a beautiful location in the hills of mid-Wales, and The Old Kiln is located with an equally peaceful setting. The accommodation has been finished to a high standard and it was a pleasure to spend our short holiday here. We enjoyed the time here walking in the hills and woodlands, which abound with rivers, streams and waterfalls, and generally relaxing and taking some time to ourselves. We are looking forward to the same again sometime soon.

Owner's reply: Thanks so much for reviewing 'The old kiln'. We try to make the cottage as comfy' as possible so that our guests have an enjoyable stay in this beautiful part of Wales. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future. kind regards Sue & Malcolm

“Idyllic setting for this gem of a cottage. An absolute find!”

Reviewed 14 Oct 2015

I hunted for weeks for the perfect cottage to stay in for our long weekend in Wales. I finally came across The Old Kiln and immediately knew it was the one. Upon arrival we were greeted by Sue and Malcom who showed us around and welcomed us to the cottage. It was perfect, everything you would need and just so warm and homely. The heated floor was pretty amazing too as it was a bit chilly! Waking up to the stream and the birds was something special, we really didn't want to go home. The cottage had loads of info of things to do nearby, we had already planned gorge walking at a nearby activity centre which was really good fun. The next adventure was Devils Bridge which we would highly recommend. Just wish we could of stayed longer as there's is so much to do and see, every corner seems to be a new beautiful landscape. Honestly it was just the perfect little get away you could ever wish for, so thankful to Sue and Malcom for letting us stay in this treasure of a cottage! Ps. Make sure you buy some of Sues homemade jam.. It's super tasty!

Owner's reply: Thanks so much for reviewing 'The Old Kiln', we're so pleased you had a good time and look forward to welcoming you again in the future to this truly special part of Wales. PS I've just made some Bramble jelly and it tastes absolutely delicious....Regards Sue & Malcolm

“Sooo relaxing!”

Reviewed 14 Sep 2015

What a fabulous, relaxing bolt-hole, in such a gorgeous area. The Old Kiln is maintained to a high spec, and contains everything you need (which is very handy because there isn't a local shop!). We had a very warm welcome by the owners, who had already provided so much information about the local area in the Old Kiln. There are some beautiful walks in the surrounding area, and it was lovely to relax in the lounge, with the patio doors open, watching the wildlife and listening to the stream which is just outside. We will definitely be returning.

Owner's reply: The Old Kiln is certainly the place to chill, relax and unwind. There are no shops in the village so we encourage guests to purchase groceries from larger towns en route as the local stores, 3 miles away, will only have a limited selection. We also provide kitchen items you might forget like sandwich bags, foil, stock cubes etc.... guests appreciate this home from home approach. Thank you for such a positive review , we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you again soon. Kind Regards Sue & malcolm

“The Old Kiln is a wonderful cosy place in the centre of Wales”

Reviewed 2 Aug 2015

Perfectly linking the charm and cosy character of a traditional cottage to the comfort of a modern home, the Old Kiln is an outstanding apartment. We felt home from the first moment. Sitting on the veranda you can watch and listen to the brook flowing in front of the house. From the maisonette living room you have a nice view through the large Window and in the second floor you find a very good equipped kitchen where you do not miss anything for cooking. The bath room has a big shower and a heater which warms your towels. The apartment was perfectly clean and decorated with love. The location in the middle of Wales is great, because all different landscape characters of Wales are nearby. We visited the Old Kiln during our honeymoon trip and truly enjoyed our stay. We like to come back at our first anniversary. Thank you for sharing this marvellous place!

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review, we are so pleased you enjoyed your wedding trip stay at The Old Kiln. This year we have had bookings from 4 honeymoon couples so each time we have decorated the cottage with romantic hearts and flower garlands to make your stay that little bit special. We look forward to seeing our German honeymooners for an anniversary trip next year. Best wishes from Sue & Malcolm

If peace and tranquillity is what you want then The Old Kiln is what you are looking for. Beautiful place with the stream alongside watching the wildlife (birds and squirrels), what more could you wish for!!. The Cottage was first class, very clean and comfortable. Sue made us very welcome. Sue's homemade jam is very tasty, bought 4 jars to take home with us. We will definitely return.

Owner's reply: The Old Kiln makes a great base for exploring this lovely part of Wales, we're so pleased you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you again in the future. kind regards Sue & Malcolm

“Loved it.”

Reviewed 27 May 2014

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.

Owner's reply: Thanks for such a positive review, we're so glad you enjoyed your stay in this beautiful part of Wales and hope to see you again in the near future. kind regards Sue & Malcolm

“Really lovely accommodaton and location”

Reviewed 23 May 2014

My daughter and I stayed for a week in The Old Kiln. The property is beautifully maintained, very comfortable and spotlessly clean. There is everything you need. The location is very peaceful and private. We had a really enjoyable stay and would not hesitate to recommend to others.

Owner's reply: Thanks so much for your review and recommendation, we're glad you enjoyed your stay in this lovely part of Wales. Regards Malcolm & Sue

“Tranquillity and plenty to explore.”

Reviewed 21 May 2014

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.

Owner's reply: 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

“Lovely weekend retreat”

Stayed here last year whilst on a cycling weekend. Very homely and comfortable. Great views. Homemade jams to buy we're a nice touch.
