Beautiful Georgian Style Cottage On The Banks of The River Dyfi | Penrhyn

Hot TubNear PubReal Fire

Penrhyn is a Georgian country house offering luxurious and refined holiday cottage accommodation. From a wonderful hillside setting it looks out over the Dyfi river and beautiful valley beyond. This elegant Grade II listed home is the perfect holiday cottage for a group of friends or large family getaway. Southern Snowdonia, sleeps up to 12 guests.

This handsome country house looks and feels like a boutique hotel. Recently renovated and beautifully presented, it has retained plenty of its original character and features. We love the sash windows, tiled floors, window seats and carefully chosen furnishings throughout.

Located at the southern end of the Snowdonia National Park, it’s an excellent base to explore the wonders of mid and north Wales and beyond. But *spoiler alert* Penrhyn-Dyfi is so exceptionally lovely and superbly comfortable that there’s a very strong chance you won’t want to go out at all.

The accommodation for this beautiful Georgian style cottage on the banks of the River Dyfi is split over three floors, with five bedrooms, and generous, bright living spaces including a games room and two large sitting rooms. There is plenty of space to spread out.

On the first floor, you have an ensuite king-sized double and two roomy twin rooms which share a bathroom.

Head up to the second floor to find a large family bedroom with two king-size beds and an ensuite bathroom. There is also a super-king bedroom on this floor. All are superbly presented and furnished. It feels indulgent and luxurious.

On the ground floor, you have a lovely bright kitchen with range cooker, dishwasher and everything you might need to cook up your tasty holiday feasts. A large separate utility room houses a washing machine and tumble dryer.

There are two large sitting rooms downstairs, with wood burners and plenty of comfortable sofas and chairs. It would take you a while to try them all out. The house comes with a generous supply of logs. There are ample quiet corners for anyone who likes their space.

If rainy days (or the genuinely superb setting and accommodation) keep you indoors you’ll find plenty to keep you busy: a large games room on the first floor comes with pool table, TV, DVD and board games.

Outside, you’ll find a large patio with outdoor seating and BBQ area – ideal for al fresco dining. There is a large hot tub which looks out across a well-groomed lawn to the most fantastic landscapes beyond. The panoramic views from this beautiful Georgian style cottage on the banks of the River Dyfi are superb from every angle.

Quiet, rural, peaceful, this beautiful Georgian style cottage on the banks of the River Dyfi in North Wales is surrounded by the most wonderful mountain and valley landscapes. It is no exaggeration to say that this is a truly stunning part of the world.

This part of southern Snowdonia is renowned for its diverse and abundant wildlife. There is great walking to be done straight out of the front door. The long-distance footpath, the Wales Coast Path, passes next to the house.

In fact there are plenty of opportunities for hiking, climbing, fishing and water sports nearby, and the world-class Coed y Brenin mountain bike centre and trails are just a short drive away.

If the weather and season is right, you might like to take on nearby ‘Cadair Idris’ (‘Chair of Idris’) – named after the legendary giant warrior poet who is said to sit on its summit. Take a hike to the top to be rewarded with the most amazing panoramic views.

The historic market town of Machynlleth is a mile away from the house, and offers some great independent shops, places to eat and drink, and an art gallery. IT’s well worth an explore: the town has a quirky, eco-friendly vibe, with the pioneering Centre for Alternative Technology and its engaging visitor centre just a couple of miles down the road.

You’re a short drive from where the River Dyfi finds the sea at Aberdovey - one of Snowdonia’s prettiest coastal villages. Aberdovey is a bit of a mecca for watersports enthusiasts. Expect fishing boats, sailing boats, dingies, windsurfers and kitesurfers on the water.

The equally lovely towns of Barmouth and Dolgellau are also within a short driving distance. There are plenty of great places to eat and stop for liquid refreshments on the way.

The Previous reviews of Penrhyn Dyfi were excellent so we had high expectations. Well what more can we add other than this place is fabulous and fully, and I mean fully, equipped with everything we needed. Spotlessly clean. Very comfortable for a family of 10 adults.

We had a week here celebrating two birthdays at 26 and 85. The house layout was ideal for our 1920s murder mystery evening and all our family activities during the rest of the week.

Hot tub and the views were a massive hit with everyone, and the house is so conveniently situated for activities and attractions for all ages.

Ann and Evan you have a gem here.

We’ve just returned from a week in Wales staying in this amazing home from home. A family of 8 adults and 4 children under 10. The home was spotless on arrival and extremely well equipped with everything you would have in your own kitchen. The children loved the hot tub, and the games room and it was the best for hide and seek! There was lots to do round and about. We visited the beaches of Aberdovey and Barmouth. Fish and chips from The Mermaid in Barmouth were the best. King Arthur’s Labyrinth is a must for the children. Market day in Machynlleth was great – try the scones! Coed y Brenin Forest was nice for walking, running or mountain biking. If you’re feeling energetic, then climb the Wales Coast Path behind the house. The view makes it worth while. An amazing holiday ❤️

Just got back from an absolutely amazing week at this beautiful house. We have never stayed in such an immaculate, clean, well equipped house! You just ‘sink’ into the beds…so comfy! Hot tub was brilliant, toys for the grandchildren. Super weather too. Aberdovey, Yynislas(Borth) great beaches. Superbly scenery, plenty to do in the area. Thank you Evan and Ann for a marvellous stay.


Absolutely stunning house, immaculate and luxurious, extremely well equipped. Lovely spacious hot tub. Some nice beaches nearby (Borth, Aberdyfi) and about 45 minutes from Barmouth. We were planning on doing some of the many nice walks in the area and climbing Cadair Idris, but it was simply too hot to do anything! Would love to return, imagine it would be very cosy in autumn. Owners are lovely and helpful, Ann will tell you all you want to know about the history of the house!

One word “stunning”. Came away with family, the house had everything you could ever need, Ann had thought of everything, even had toys for our 2 year old. The house is just luxury and the hot tub is brill. Thank you Ann and Evan for a fantastic holiday
