Overview

About the property

Cottage in Cwm-Llinau, Nr. Machynlleth, Powys, Wales - The Perfect Place For Relaxing And Unwinding Or More Adventurous Activities

Get away from it all to the peace and tranquility of the Dyfi valley in Mid Wales on the southern edge of Snowdonia, within easy reach of the beautiful West Wales coast beaches.

The surrounding area is rural, safe and peaceful, the only sounds are of birdsong, the mountain stream and the occasional bleeting of sheep on the hills behind the cottage.

Bryn Uchel Uchaf is a traditional farm cottage dating back to the 1700s. Bryn Uchel Uchaf has been in the family for over 40 years and has countless happy memories.

We took on the cottage when we got married and went about renovating it, taking it right back to basics and both updating in terms of comforts but also rediscovering hidden character.

The immediate area is so peaceful and away from things, you can't help but unwind as the natural rhythm of life there kicks in. Sometimes we don't venture away from the immediate hillside and cottage area. However there's plenty of adventurous and scenic activities nearby and especially good for families and outdoorsy types. A particular favourite is Aberdyfi beach.

A great private garden only overlooked by red kites and sheep!

Approximately 1/4 acre of garden with an open fire pit, swing and with a woodshed.

There is a caravan in the garden with a variety of outdoor equipment.

Open access to the mountainside on the doorstep.

We will be in contact by email and tell you everything you will need to know and give you details of how to find the keys. We will not be able to meet you as live a long way away. We are at the end of a phone if there are any problems.

The cottage is cleaned by a professional cleaner after each visit.

Towels and bed linen are not included but can be by arrangement (and extra cost) with enough notice.

Bryn Uchel Uchaf is so away from things and feels like you enter another world in many ways. However, it is only 15 minutes from Machynlleth and very close to several attractions and beaches.

I think it's the space and freedom you get here that is so unique.

Travelling by car or another vehicle is recommended. The local area is very popular for cyclists (both road and mountain). There are many popular routes and trails. It is also an incredible place if you enjoy walking.

Nearest train station is Machynlleth (8 miles).

Nearest airport is Liverpool (~70 miles) or Manchester (~100 miles)

During peak times eg. schools holidays, the cottage can only be booked for whole week bookings (from Saturday to Saturday)

Additionally bags of logs can be supplied (with enough notice) by our cleaner. These are available for £4 per bag . There are fuel stations and shops selling logs not too far away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Andy and Helen Thomas 2012.3.8 12:49

We had the MOST amazing stay at the cottage! From the gorgeousness of the cottage to the beautiful surroundings! We had a truly relaxing adventure! We have 3 small children and they loved being outdoors so much - from watching the farmer bring his sheep down off the mountain, to trekking up the stream, to having a picnic down by the river; and then back to the cottage for a real fire and a hot chocolate! It was the perfect holiday! The cottage has been furnished beautifully yet retains it's cottage characteristics! We would highly recommend a visit!



Craig Portsmouth 2012.3.7 11:53

I have spent the last two New Years celebrating in the cottage, one before and one after the renovations. Both times we had an excellent time, the cottage is so cosy with the real fires and comfy sofas and the renovations have just made it extra special! Would highly recommend!

Fantastic cottage

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful three nights at this cottage. Good communication with the owners, exceptional bed, clean and well equipped. The outside fire pit was an added bonus and the scenery was stunning. Thank you for a wonderful weekend we will definitely be back. Regards Heather and Peter Bleasdale

peaceful retreat

  • 4 of 5

As a family we have been visiting the mid-wales area around machynllth for many years and love the breathtaking views and countryside walks and activities.

This cottage provided us with a lovely quiet location, remote and tranquil. The cottage had good size rooms, fire in lounge and bathroom that was fairly new. We found the cottage welcoming and warm with the added bonus of central heating as it can get cold during may in evenings. The cottage has lots of character and we found well equipt with essentials such as cooker, fridge, cooking equipment and local information. Not suitable for young children in our opinion.

Car parking outside, friendly farm next door and an opportunity to walk up mountains on our doorstep; listening to owls and the cries of red kites.
