A winding road through the southern part of the Snowdonia National Park leads you into the Dovey Forest to a secluded longhouse called Maesywerngoch. A luxurious yet laidback holiday home, Maesywerngoch has no neighbouring properties. 'The location is very convenient for Snowdonia and the various activities and destinations available in Wales. We visited Surf Snowdonia and Bounce Below, which worked out perfectly to fill one day.'

A luxurious yet laidback holiday home, Maesywerngoch has no neighbouring properties. 'The location is very convenient for Snowdonia and the various activities and destinations available in Wales. We visited Surf Snowdonia and Bounce Below, which worked out perfectly to fill one day.' Alice June 2017 Whilst keeping elements of the longhouse's 300 year-old charm such as its original wood beams, slate floors and thick stone walls, we have completely restored and expanded Maesywerngoch to include 6 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms and spacious common areas. Accompanying the longhouse are several acres of lovingly maintained gardens with streams, ponds, footbridges and waterfalls. Enjoy wandering through the garden viewing the many varieties of rhododendrons, azaleas, camellias, roses and clematis. Maesywerngoch has been a mainstay in our own family for over 40 years. To keep this tradition, we have worked to create a perfect space for multi-generational family holidays, with intimate yet spacious living areas filled with high-end furnishings. Maesywerngoch is kept cosy year round by a delightful pillar box red AGA in the kitchen and wood burning stoves in each of the three sitting rooms. Floor to ceiling glass doors open up fully in both the 'barn' and 'stables', now a large open-planned sitting room and dining room to enjoy the velvety views of the valley and gardens. Maesywerngoch is a perfect base for walkers and amblers of all abilities. We are spoilt for choice with walks directly from the property including a stretch of the wonderful Wales Coastal Path that runs through the forest. A favourite activity for our family and friends with small children is walking the many miles of Welsh paths picking blackberries for a crumble! Adults enjoy it just as much.Now that our children our teenagers, it seems only these walks can pull them away from their video games. We think it will have the same effect on your family! But not to worry-we do provide modern technologies like large flatscreen TV's in two sitting rooms and free WiFi throughout the house. Other child-friendly activities include crabbing from the pier at Aberdovey Beach, cycling though the forest on Cycle route 8, tent camping in the front garden, playing badminton on the front lawn and gazing at the stars on a clear night and bird watching. Maesywerngoch sleeps 10 adults in beds and 2 children in the bunk beds. Cots, high chairs and put up beds available. The forestry road to the house may have several pot holes. There is a short section of our driveway that may be unsuitable for low slung cars with low profile tyres. As team leader you will be the STAR for choosing Maesywerngoch as your holiday destination.

About the neighbourhood
Maesywerngoch is 3 miles from the town of Pennal (10 minute drive) and 15 minutes from the market town of Machynlleth. The seaside town of Aberdovey is a 20 minute pleasant and beautiful drive along the estuary from the house. There are loads of attractions nearby. Maesywerngoch is located within Snowdonia National Park, the Dyfi Biosphere and also within the Dark Sky Reserve. The stars are amazing on clear nights. We have no near neighbours so enjoy no light or noise pollution.
Getting around
A car is necessary to visit Maesywerngoch. We recommend a car with a 6 inch (15 cm) ground clearance only come up to the house.
