The small hamlet of Cwrt stands on the edge of the beautiful Happy Valley, located between the ancient town of Machynlleth and the picturesque coastal village of Aberdyfi near the southern tip of the Snowdonia National Park. Aberdyfi is renowned for its mild climate, sandy beaches, sailing and a championship 18-hole links golf course. The village is often referred to as an "artist's paradise" with its pastel coloured cottages, small shops, inns and excellent restaurants which specialise in local seafood, and it boasts some of the finest beaches in Britain, with four miles of golden sand-dune backed shoreline running north to Tywyn. The beaches are popular with sunbathers, swimmers, surfers and fishermen while the estuary attracts a wide range of water sports enthusiasts.

The peaks of the Cader Idris and Aran Fawddwy ranges are within easy reach and are complemented by the charm of the Dyfi, Dysynni and Tal y Llyn valleys nearby. An ideal area for walkers, climbers and wildlife watchers, and a wonderful all-year-round location.

Comments from the Visitors' Book

We stayed here in May as a base for the Mach Comedy Festival. The cottage was a real home from home with everything you needed and very comfortable. With being at a the festival, we weren't there a great deal, however, we would certainly book again for a more leisurely stay as we enjoy walking and it was lovely to be able to "walk from your door". Shana 'the Owner' was extremely helpful and was there if needed, whilst leaving us to enjoy the comforts of the cottage which was immaculate and had a lovely relaxing feel to it.

My wife and I took the family (3 kids of 15, 12 & 7) to Stable Cottage for an Easter break. It was beautifully appointed and very comfortable with everything we needed. The log burner was particularly necessary on a couple of evenings and really set the atmosphere for a cosy night in, whilst the shared games room with pool table helped to keep the kids occupied. The location of the cottage was ideal for us to explore the area to satisfy everyone's tastes. Days in Aberdovey crabbing, an early morning hike over Cader Idris, day out in Aberystwyth, mountain biking in Machynlleth and other hill walks nearby, all sorts going on and easily accessible. Highly recommended, a great base for a wonderful week!

My wife and I took my 20 yr old son and 91 yr old mum away for a week. We had a great time, and the accommodation was perfect. Step-free access for mum, with a great bathroom (we have rented places before with downstairs bed & bath which had a tiny bathroom which you have to be agile to use - useless). Access to the outside areas was also step free. The kitchen was well equipped -with about a dozen settings of crockery & cutlery, which meant we weren't forever running the dishwasher. The upstairs bedrooms were well equipped too, and the master bedroom was huge with comfy chairs if you wanted a space away from the family! The whole place was spotless. There is a shared games room/laundry next door which would be good with children in poor weather - also a variety of board games and computer games console. Shana & Aled would stop by if they were passing, and we were outside and were kind, friendly and interesting without being intrusive. The area is lovely and there is an excellent pub/restaurant in the village. No Wi-Fi but we could have accessed it nearby if we wanted to - we managed without. Good tv signal, and nice little flat screen tv. All the furnishings were of good quality and weren't "fussy". Shana has two other houses near the Stable which could be rented for a larger group. There are a lot of sheep around, so not sure if it would be suitable for dogs. We wondered if the nearby caravan park would be intrusive - it isn't. The coast isn't far away with good beaches. We had great weather, but The Stable would be comfy in more traditional Welsh weather! Highly recommended.

We had a fantastic week, saw the sun every day. Went on a fishing trip and saw dolphins, went canoeing, the slate mines at Corris and the narrow gauge railway at Aberystwyth. Lovely cottage with everything we needed. Kids loved the games room.
