We're in the process of turning a barn into an outdoor cinema (contact us for more on that) which is an exciting project.At dusk, pull up a chair outside and watch the bats that weave in and out of the trees, and then stargaze to yours hearts content, the night sky is breathtaking.Close to the beaches at Aberdyfi and 20 minutes from Snowdonia Ideal for families or adult groups there is plenty of space for outdoor games and summer bbqs.If you want to see what we've been up to lately, get to know us a bit more, see some more photos and stay in touch then search for fronlwydfarmholidaycottage on social media.. We live at the very far end of the property and are on hand if you need any help or assistance. We are 'World Host' accredited. Walk for miles not seeing a soul and just listen to the sound of birdsong and Buzzards and Red Kites circling above. Take an expedition off to find the stone circles on the hill side above or just take off for Fronlwyd is right in the middle of a beautiful unspoilt valley that is a tributary to the river Dyfi, a world famous salmon river and internationally renowned 'biosphere' for flauna and flora. there is hill walking from our door, at the head of the valley is the sources of the rivers Severn and Wye with their respective long distance footpaths beginning here. A ten minute drive away is the Hafren forest which has miles of walking and cycle tracks through it and there is sailing fifteen minutes away at Llyn Cllewedog. Depending on how adventurous you want to get you go pony trekking on the beach at Borth, Canadian canoe down the Dyfi river, kayaking at the Welsh national kayaking centre near Llangollen and of course Snowdownia is on our doorstep - my favourite mountain to walk is cader idris which is just as spectacular as Snowdon with the added benefit being without the crowds - it's about half an hour from Fronlwyd.The area is famous for mountain biking and Machnylleth, 20 minutes away, has four downhill trails that will challenge any rider. A little further afield is the longest zip wire in Europe, which is something like a mile long! Several guests have been on this and said that it was a great experience. Also rave reviews continue for the underground caves 'Bounce Below'. If this is all a bit too 'extreme' there is stacks of other things to do that is more in keeping with the tourist scene, castles a plenty, narrow gauge railways, art galleries etc There is plenty of space for bikes at Fronlwyd with a garage to lock them up in and pressure washer available. By prior arrangement we are happy to accept internet shops here, speak to us first and we'll put all your shopping away ready for your arrival. Tesco and Asda deliver. We can also provide local meats from cattle grazed less than 8 miles away....we can even tell you their name if you wanted to know! 2 of the 4 bedrooms with single beds in are zip and link beds meaning they can be turned into super king sized if desired - please state this when booking

Location description from owner
The Wales region
If you want to get away from it all then Powys is a good place to start - the least densely populated county in England and Wales means the uninterrupted countryside that has disappeared from so many places remains almost untouched - it was here that the Red Kite hung on to eventually begin recolonisation of Wales and England and it is here that the BBC's SpringWatch sets up base camp annually due to the abundance of bird and wildlife (not to mention the friendly welcome and good beer)
Llanbrynmair is a small village with a friendly community , on the A470 road 12 miles east of Machynlleth. The village has a shop, pub and cafe with attached museum, soft play and bunny village.
35 minutes from the coast at Aberdyfi and 25 minutes from the edge of Snowdonia, Fronlwyd is a great location for exploring both MId-Wales and North Wales, being right on the border of both. It is also easily accessed from the Midlands, South Wales and the Bristol area and the NW of England. The area is renowned as a mountain biking mecca with many dedicated trails on the hills and forests. At the top of the valley is the Hafren forest and uplands of the Pulumon Fawr where the source of both the rivers Severn and Wye start. You can walk all day here without having to cross a road. To the South is the pretty market town of Llanidloes and to the West is historic Machnylleth - both have excellent cafes, art galleries and antique shops. There are also many visitor attractions in the area, including the Centre for Alternative Technology, the Modern Art Museum of Wales and Owain Glydwr's breakaway parliament building.

- Very Good
This is our second stay here but the first review. We stayed for a few days after Christmas in the lovely rustic cottage, complete with exposed beams & floorboards in the bedrooms and enoromous original flagstones in the large entrance hall with plenty of space for drying boots and coats after an afternoon walking. There's a nice big lounge for the cold evenings too. Our kids are 2 and 4 and had a ball running around the gardens and in the woods next to the house - there's no traffic so its competely safe. There are great views across to Pen Rhiw-myn from the house and back garden - the stars & mliky way are amazing on a clear night too. It's a great spot for exploring Snowdonia national park with walks and bridleways running from the front door, and good value. We'll definately stay again.
