The cottage has two bedrooms one of which is accessed through the other making it ideal for families, There is a large double bed in the main bedroom and bunk beds (single on top, double to lower) in the second bedroom. The shower room is light and airy catching the morning sun. The large slate tiled open plan ground floor boasts a fully equipped galley kitchen, a lounge area with wood burning stove and satellite TV and two very comfy sofas. The dining area seats 4 comfortably and has views of the nearby hills. Outside the kitchen to the back of the cottage there is a utility room with washing and drying facilities. The doorways are low so you will need to mind your head. To the front of the cottage is a well established garden part lawned and with a raised decking area with table and chairs for summer dining. The many and varied country walks start from the front door and there is fishing in the nearby Dovey river just down the lane from Frondeg. There is also a petrol filling station, an award winning pub, a shop and post office and a cafe in the village. .More

The tranquil coastal town of Aberdovey is 9 miles west of Machynlleth whilst farther south the seaside towns of Aberystwyth, Aberaeron and New Quay are but a short drive away. There are many nature reserves in this part of the Cardigeon area. The Cambrian coastal road from Aberdovey, through Tywyn and up to Dolgellau should not be missed as is the Tal-y-Llin road from Tywyn. Don't forget your camera. In Dolgellau you will find shops and pubs, cafes and restaurants,, try the coffee and cakes at the internet cafe in Parliament House found in a former hardware store.
