From the owner

'Frondeg' (Pretty Hill) is a delightful 17th century, traditional stone, former blacksmith's cottage in the centre of the tiny hamlet of Mallwyd famous for it's 14th century church and the home of the 'Gwylliad Cochion Mawddwy' (the Red Bandits of Mawddwy), a bunch of red haired Highwaymen from the 16th century.

Mallwyd is situated in the famous Snowdonia National Park and lies half way between the market towns of Dolgellau (9 miles) and Machynleth (10 miles). The cottage has recently been re-furbished but has kept it's original features such as it's oak beams and stone fireplace with a wood burning stove.

We can offer fibre broadband internet.

The cottage has two bedrooms one of which is accessed through the other making it ideal for families, There is a large double bed in the main bedroom and full size bunk beds (single on top, double to lower) in the second bedroom. The shower room is light and airy catching the morning sun.

The large slate tiled open plan ground floor boasts a fully equipped galley kitchen, a lounge area with wood burning stove and satellite TV and two very comfy sofas. The dining area seats 4 comfortably and has views of the nearby hills.

Outside the kitchen to the back of the cottage there is a utility room with washing and drying facilities. The doorways are low so you will need to mind your head.

To the front of the cottage is a well established garden part lawned and with a raised decking area with table and chairs for summer dining.

The many and varied country walks start from the front door and there is fishing in the nearby Dovey river just down the lane from Frondeg. There is also a petrol filling station, an award winning pub, a shop and post office and a cafe in the village.
