We have three large, light and comfortable rooms in a family home right in the heart of Machynlleth. Each one is uniquely decorated, and furnished with a double bed (though we can accommodate more on futons if you need!).
Though it is a family home, you will have a private small kitchen and bathroom, and also access to the family garden if you wish. There is also free internet, a DVD player with films to watch, a radio and a book swap. We can offer you a relaxing, private and peaceful space, whether you are an individual, couple, family or a larger group.
Machynlleth itself is a pleasant market town surrounded by hills and at the edge of the beautiful Dyfi valley. As well as the Wednesday weekly market, there are plenty of shops, pubs and places to eat. Just outside of town there are many cycling, running and walking trails in the hills, mountains and forests, Europe's leading eco-centre the Centre for Alternative Technology, the RSPB Ynys-hir nature reserve (made famous on Springwatch!), two fantastic beaches at Aberdyfi and Ynyslas, and just a short distance away Aberystwyth, with its splendid Arts Centre.
The house has nearby parking, is just 100 yards from the bus stop, and only a few minutes walk from the train station.
Please note that we do not accept pets and as the rooms are on the third floor, the accommodation is not suitable for those with mobility problems. The stairs to the loft are steep.
You can park outside the house to unload and then move the car to an off road car park a couple of hundred metres away.
We are located on the main road, so there is some traffic noise during the day.
Looking forward to seeing you!
You will have third floor of the house and the loft space to yourself. We generally don't accept more than one booking at a time.

I am around most of the time and am happy to help if you need any assistance or just want to chat. I won't intrude on your privacy.
The space is yours to do as you please, but we do work so no parties late into the early hours I'm afraid!
Hello! The people in the house are myself (Joan), and James. We have lived here since 1982. James works in environmental conservation around the UK. I started my career as a History and Sociology teacher and then worked in environmental education at the Centre for Alternative Technology for over 30 years. For the last 2 years I worked as a Community Carer in Machynlleth and now I work voluntarily for Oxfam and the RSPB. I would describe myself as a Mum, Grandma, gardener, environmentalist, socialist and humanist - all part of the same thing! My home is reflection of my personality.
