Tan y Coed, Welsh for under the trees,is situated just a 2 minute walk away from the Plas Dolguog Hotel, less than a mile outside of Machynlleth and right in the middle of the Dyfi Valley, and just up river from the RSPB Ynysir Wildlife Reserve as featured on BBC's Spring Watch.
The cabin was purchased by its present owner just over a year ago and has been fully refurbished. It's an ideal place for a couple or small family, walkers and cyclists to use as a base for exploring this diverse part of Mid Wales with many surrounding bridleways, walks, and forestry commission tracks.
The lounge/diner is centred around the large French doors looking out over the beautiful Dyfi valley and the modern and highly efficient Scandinavian log burning stove for which a plentiful supply of logs is provided.
The lounge has been modernly furnished including a large L-shaped sofa and Freeview TV with built in DVD player. Off the lounge is the large covered deck with two large comfy outdoor chairs and table/footstool giving you an uninterrupted view of the Dyfi valley – a perfect place for enjoying those summer evenings.
The kitchen has recently been refurbished with modern fitted units, oven, halogen hob, a microwave and a fridge freezer. The dining area within the lounge contains L-shaped bench seating together with some accompany stools. The bathroom, again recently refitted contains a modern electric shower, WC and sink
All on one level, the first bedroom contains a large comfortable king sized bed, fitted wardrobe, lamps and bedside tables. The second bedroom contains two comfortable single beds, fitted wardrobe, lamp and bedside table.
Both bedrooms are finished in white bed linen, contain blackout blinds have mattresses from John Lewis hopefully ensuring you a perfect night's sleep, with both hand towels and bath towels also provided.
The main heat source for the property is the wood burning stove, but this is backed up by additional electric radiators throughout together will an electric towel rail ensuring a comfortable and cosy stay all year round.

The Powys region
Besides the huge array of walks and mountain bike trails, shops, pubs and coffee shops that Machynlleth has to offer, the below are suggestions of activities/places to visit within the local area:
Cadair Idris is just a short drive way. Cadair Idris consists of a massive 11km long ridge and although only the 19th highest mountain in Wales, it is the second most popular mountain in the country after Mount Snowdon. With a variety of paths it's suitable for most abilities.
Aberdovey (lovely little costal town with a long beach)
Elan Valley (a series of reservoirs). I'd recommend going there by taking the mountain road from Machynlleth to Llanidloes
Devils Bridge (a walk down a valley with cascading waterfalls just about everywhere you look)
Barmouth (coastal town much larger than Aberdovey). I'd recommend on a nice day parking (free) at Morfa Mawddach train station on the opposite side of the estuary from Barmouth and walk in across the footpath that runs alongside the train line over the estuary.
Alternatively rent bikes at Dolgellau (£8 for the day) and cycle down the Mawddach trail that takes you to Barmouth. It's amazing scenery and 9.5 miles each way but is completely flat and not a road in sight, oh, and there is a pub half way.

"With a stunning view across the valley, private sheltered deck, cosy logburner & lovely furnishings, it's truely idylic!"
A newly refurbished lodge which has been tastefully and sympathetically furnished. The log burner was easy to light and quickly threw out the heat. There was also a plentiful supply of wood. The deck is very sheltered, and only overlooked by the sheep in the valley! I went in February however this lodge would be ideal at any time of year, come rain or shine. The uninterrupted view across the valley, with the river running through it is amazing and makes you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere. Situated approx.one mile from the town, it is a picturesque walk, or the local taxi service is quick, reliable and very cheap. The nearby coastal towns of Aberdovy and Barmouth are well worth visiting, with plenty of independent shops and nice restaurants. A very comfortable and relaxing break that I would recommend to any one.
