Total Relaxation in an Idyllic Spot

Over the last three years these 17th century barns have been lovingly restored from a cow byre and a hay loft into two comfortable cottages which are contained in a single detached building. They are situated along a single track lane with no through traffic

Whilst they are in a very peaceful location they are not remote being only 3 miles from the seaside town of Tywyn and 6 miles from the beautiful old fishing village of Aberdyfi.

The Afon (River) Dysynni borders the property as it meanders down the valley from Craig y Deryn (Bird Rock) which hosts the only inland nesting site of cormorants. Historically this dates back to when the sea came this far inland (approximately 5 miles from the sea now). The large area of reed beds adjacent is a protected area (SSSI) and is the source of an abundance of wildlife.

There are extensive panoramic views from the cottages looking up the valley where Cadair Idris the second highest mountain in Wales at 2927 feet high and Craig y Deryn can be seen.

You may be lucky enough at dusk to see the barn owls that nest on the property or maybe the pair of buzzards that reside here also.

Cormorants will almost certainly be seen on their way back to Craig y Deryn after their fishing trip out at sea. There are also two flocks of Canada geese that often fly in to feed in adjacent fields. Many other variety of bird will be seen in this haven for wildlife.

The location of the cottages are ideally situated for many excursions. There are plenty of walks suitable for both young and old and the more adventurous. Exploring the area you may wish to visit:-

Centre for Alternative Technology, Corris Craft Centre and King Arthur's Labrynth,Castell y Bere and the church where Mary (Mari) Jones worshipped, Llanegryn Church 15th century Chancel screen, beach walk from Tywyn to Aberdyfi have coffee and return by train,Talyllyn Railway, Wednesday market in Machynlleth (its been going for a 1000 years). Try a Dylan Thomas lunch with Mercia at Royal House, she specialises in good Welsh produce.

All of the above will be comfortably acheived in a half day although it is suspected you may wish to take a little longer over you visit.

A little further afield you may wish to walk the beautiful Mawddach estuary highlighted by Julia Bradbury on one of her walks, you may like to take refreshment (coffee or meals at George the third at Penmaenpool overlooking the Mawddach). There are many places on the walk where a picnic can be taken at the waters edge.

Other adventures a little further afield maybe a trip to Portmeirion the Italianate village and set for the TV programme The Prisoner starring Patrick McGoohan. Porthmadog is a few miles further on and base for the Ffestiniog Railway and newly restored Welsh Highland Railway a visit to Kerfoots for a browse and a coffee is always worthwhile.

At certain times of the year a visit to the Osprey project is another interesting excursion and then maybe afternoon tea at Glandyfi Castle overlooking the Dyfi estuary.

If you are feeling exhausted by now a massage can be arranged at Plas Talgarth Country Club (during the winter months there are special offers available).

It is now time to unwind, if its a little chilly light up the log burning stove, maybe a glass of wine put your feet up take a good book, perhaps a game or even the TV.
