A Unique Holiday Cottage in an Idyllic Location | Beudy-Mach

Pet FriendlyReal Fire

Beudy-Mach is a unique holiday cottage in an idyllic location high above the Dovey Valley in Southern Snowdonia. This quirky carbon neutral property provides self-catering accommodation for up to 7 people in the most wonderful rural setting.

A lonely farm road leads guests up through fields of grazing sheep to this distinctive converted barn. Entering through the thick double glazed doors you are greeted by a wonderful open space that houses the kitchen diner. High vaulted ceilings sit above a luxurious oak floor. A reclaimed dining table and chairs sit proudly in the middle of the space whilst to the side, a rustic kitchen backs onto the original and exposed stonewall of the barn. A modern gas cooker is included as well as all the other crockery and utensils that you might need. But it’s fair to say that this cottage does not have the wealth of appliances that some of our other more modern cottages have. It’s all about character and sense of space in Beudy-Mach.

Opposite the entrance another double glazed door leads out onto a magnificent veranda. From this elevated position guests can look across to Cader Idris on the far side of the valley and then down over Machynlleth towards Aberdovey itself.

Back inside, a mezzanine floor splits the other end of the barn. The ground floor is reserved for the seating area. A traditional log burner commands centre stage surrounded by distinctive and carefully selected furniture and fixtures. A staircase near the front door leads us above. A wrought iron bed stands on more oak flooring and yet more funky furniture creates another spectacular space. With the curtains thrown open guests can look down onto the kitchen area and demand coffee and toast.

Back through the kitchen we enter the eastern end of the barn. Three bedrooms here altogether. There is one smaller child’s room with a single bed plus and additional foldaway bed if required. Next door accommodates a larger double bed. There is also a small shower room in this part of the barn and a larger bathroom with wc and sunken bath. A spiral staircase leads us to the fourth and last bedroom. Another comfortable iron king size bed sits under the slanted roof of the barn. Lots more individual ornaments and fixtures to enjoy in all the bedrooms.

Anyone familiar with this part of southern Snowdonia will know how spectacular the landscape is in this area. ‘A walkers paradise’ is the standard phrase reeled out, but it’s undoubtedly true in this instance. Less crowded than the slopes of Snowdon, the mountains in this part of the national park provide a real opportunity to explore the true wilderness of Wales.

A short 10 minute drive will take you into the more populated town of Machynlleth. Steeped in welsh history the town most famous resident was Owain Glyndwr, the heroic welsh rebel of medieval times. The town hosts a farmers market every Wednesday and is home to some delightful shops cafes and pubs.

Corris, another nearby village, has the well known ‘Centre for Alternative Technology’ as well as a small craft village and ‘King Arthurs Labyrinth’, an underground tour certain to capture a child’s imagination. The popular seaside towns of Aberdyfi and Tywyn are a short drive to the south west. Bala, to the east, is famous for its fishing and whitewater rafting and the world renowned mountain biking trails of Coed Y Brenin are about 30 minutes to the north.

A wonderful retreat with beautiful views of the valley. Comfy and clean, and that bath with the window looking out was perfect.

Had some difficulty getting out when it snowed but the owner Dafydd was incredibly helpful and understanding.

We would definitely recommend this holiday home, especially for those wishing to get away from it all.

Stayed mid September 2017 with a group of friends.
Fantastic experience, once the fires are lit it is so cosy and a great place to escape for the weekend.
Definitely bring your own food and also a torch if you plan on going outside.
Would recommend this place to everyone, great value for money stay in the Welsh countryside.

The past week we’ve been there for the second time, now with our adult children and their friends. We all enjoyed it. Still the same stunning view and the same quite place.
Driving up the hill was pure fun … as we had two well going 4×4!
