Beautifully renovated 300 year old farmhouse overlooking the Dyfi Estuary and stunning welsh countryside. With the Dyfi Osprey Project just over the river, together with Ynys-Hir RSBP Nature Reserve, the house has a special attraction for all bird lovers. Kites, Herons and if you are luck an occasional Osprey can often be spotted soaring over the garden. We have provided everything from fluffy towels, herbs and spices and pasta, to a basket of logs to help you enjoy your stay here. The house has loads of charm from family antiques, local art and photographs, to furniture that we have renovated in keeping with the heart and soul the house.

With the Dyfi Osprey Project just over the river, together with Ynys-Hir RSBP Nature Reserve, the house has a special attraction for all bird lovers. Kites, Herons and if you are luck an occasional Osprey can often be spotted soaring over the garden. We have provided everything from fluffy towels, herbs and spices and pasta, to a basket of logs to help you enjoy your stay here. The house has loads of charm from family antiques, local art and photographs, to furniture that we have renovated in keeping with the heart and soul the house. The garden has a wood-burning Chiminea for cooler nights watching the sun go down and a large barbecue for summer nights. Glan-y-Morfa is accessed down a well-maintained farm track, so you are definitely 'off the beaten track', but only 10 minutes walk across fields and Talgarth Woods is the Plas Talgarth Country club, which has a great snug bar( Y Garth) and restaurant . By car the house is only 15 minutes drive to the glorious beaches and coves on the Estuary and the delightful seaside village of Aberdyfi. Going inland for 15 minutes is Machynlleth; full of interesting junk and vintage shops, as well as a great weekly Market selling fresh local food and crafts. There are numerous walks and bike trails up in the mountains and the notorious Cadair Idris Mountain for the more adventurous. Although all around the area there are numerous walks for all levels. We have plenty of maps and books in the farmhouse for you to plan your day. As dog owners ourselves, we welcome dogs (we even have spare bowls for them), but please be aware that the house is surrounded by farmland and the garden is fenced and gated. Nevertheless all dogs need to be kept under control at all times. The house has 2 large double bedrooms, 1 twin bedroom and 1 bedroom with full-sized bunk beds. A travel cot can be put up by request. The upstairs bathroom has a toilet and shower. The 2nd bathroom downstairs has a bath, shower and toilet. The large family kitchen with table seats 8, plus there is a separate dining room that also seats 8 people. A comfortable sitting room has 2 sofas and a Jotel open log burner. There's a TV, blue tooth speakers, hi-fi, plus numerous books and maps about the area. At the back of the house is a utility/games room with washing machine and Tumble dryer plus a drying rack for wet clothes and a muddy boots rack. Bikes can also be stored safely here, as there are some great mountain trails up in the mountains. If you want to stay in we also have a table football and a 'Safe' darts board, together with numerous outdoor games: badminton, boules,and quoits. We also have a high chair and full child-proof fire guard. The house is well stocked with a variety of family board games and cards. No smoking permitted in the house. More

About the neighbourhood
Overlooking the River Dyfi and the Opsrey project, Glan-y-Morfa is surrounded by breathtaking views all round. Within easy reach of the renowned peak Cader Idris, the fabulous beaches of Aberdovey and the Market town of Machynlleth.
Getting around
I think a car is essential, but if some of your group are coming by train the nearest station is Machynlleth. Trains come from Shrewsbury, Abersystwyth and Birmingham New Street.
