A rural retreat in the wilds of Mid Wales, this beautiful, detached, property is the perfect self-catering home for family get-togethers, friend reunions and special occasions. A stunning, spacious, 5-star home tucked away on the outskirts of Snowdonia, Rhiwlas has breathtaking views from its private hot tub.
Valley views and peaceful living
The spacious cottage is split into two homes of equal size to accommodate its huge, 16-guest space. Both kitchens are equipped with beautiful, modern units, electric oven or range oven, dishwashers, fridge freezers, large slow cookers, and luxurious cafetieres for freshly-brewed morning coffees. Although each property has its own individual dining rooms, large families and groups love to gather around the enormous 16-person, oak dining table that enjoys stunning views through the large bay window. There’s also a library with a wide selection of books, local maps, and games for children and adults alike. Similar to the dining room arrangement, there are two welcoming lounge areas, both including Freeview TV and cosy wood burner stoves, with one living room accommodating eight guests, with the other the full part of 16.
Surrounded by private, enclosed gardens, children and adults have plenty of outdoor space to make the most of their rural retreat. Far-reaching views across the Dyfi Valley and estuary at every turn, the six-person hot tub is perfect for scenic, late-summer nights. Enjoy peaceful, al-fresco dining in nature on the elevated, decked-dining area, and whip up a casual dinner on the luxury gas barbecue stove.
Within walking distance of a lovely village pub and restaurant, friends can spend evenings in the fresh, countryside air, with good company and cold drinks. The quaint market town of Machynlleth, known as the ancient capital of Wales, is laced with independent boutiques, mouthwatering local produce and thrilling mountain trails that lead right from the village centre.
Bedrooms and bathrooms
Across the two sections, six double bedrooms and two attic spaces sleep 16 discerning guests in beautifully decorated, countryside rooms. All six doubles come with wall-mounted TV’s, window seats to enjoy the spectacular views, along with plenty of clothes storage space, and fluffy towels with the locally made Welsh soap provided. The two attic areas are laid out as twin bedrooms, but these can be linked to make king-size beds upon request. There’s an additional landing space with children's toys, table and chairs to keep them entertained on cosy nights in. There are three en-suites across the rooms, and two family bathrooms in total, with a modern spa bath and freestanding bath respectively.
There is private parking available for up to five cars and a lockable garage for bike storage. We provide plenty of logs for the wood burner and gas for the BBQ. Baby items such as a high chair, travel cot and stair gate are all available on request, but guests are asked to bring their own cot linen. The local Co-op shop can deliver groceries.

The weekend was nothing short of fantastic!! Everything was as we expected and the owners even backed us some local dishes with some wine when we arrived. We will absolutely be coming back soon.Cook Family from UK - 10th December 2018
Plas Rhiwlas is a really charming house, the accommodation is not only delightful, but very flexible for a large family party and then there's all the thoughtful touches. A whole cupboard filled with games and toys for the youngsters, a complete selection of beverages, condiments, milk, cake and a complimentary bottle of wine in the kitchen for arrival. The hot-tub had also been pre-heated. So the holiday started as we walked through the door! John and Annie are wonderful hosts, available if needed. The valley views were captivating from sunrise to sunset...on the barbecue terrace. Mr R Mooney - 10th October 2018
