    > Lying in the heart of the Cambrian Mountains in Mid Wales, this unique detached stone cottage makes an unforgettable experience for a family or couples alike. The first record of Llechwedd Mawr dates back to 1587 when a farmer, Richard Morgan, rented the land. It was the traditional way back then to graze cattle through the summer and make butter and cheese to sell in the neighbouring villages. A survey of 1811 described the building as "a stone house with a slate cover in good repair and that with 983 acres the rent shall be £22 per annum."

    Over the following years the house saw many changes and occupants until the 1950s when it became inaccessible due to a hydro-electric dam being built, and it stood abandoned and isolated for many years until a road was made. The present owners purchased the land and cottage in the 1980s and it was used merely to store sheep food until its complete renovation in 2011 and then two years later it was transformed into the uniquely positioned and beautiful holiday home it is today.

    The owners have been appointed Ambassadors to the Cambrian Mountains, an initiative set up by HRH The Prince of Wales to recognise high quality tourism establishments that contribute to the sustainability of the region. They have also received the prestigious certificate from the World Hosts programme in the principles of customer service. As well as this they have won an award from Aberystwyth University for ’The Best Aber Welcome’ in recognition of their fantastic hospitality. You are assured a warm welcome or "Croeso Cynnes" as they say in Wales.

    There are mountain views from all windows and a scenic route leads you from the village of Talybont over the Nant-y-Moch Dam to Ponterwyd and Devil’s Bridge. On your approach to the cottage, ‘Pumlumon’ - the highest peak in the Cambrian Mountain range - will come into full view with its 760 square mile vastness of heather, forest, shimmering lakes and sourcing the mighty Severn and Wye rivers. This high country of compelling emptiness defies civilisation, providing a natural playground for ramblers, mountain bikers and bird watchers alike. If you can drag yourself away from the tranquillity of Llechwedd Mawr, the nearby charming towns of Aberystwyth, Machynlleth and Aberaeron are well worth a visit, offering traditional Welsh pubs, boutique shops and sandy beaches where dolphins and porpoises are often spotted on a clear day. Horse riding nearby. Shop, pub and restaurant, 8 miles.

    The cottage has everything you need to get away from the rat race. Located near 3 mountains with amazing scenery right outside the front door. The owner is very helpful and clearly cares you have a fantastic stay. Will stay again.

    We had a wonderful few days at Llchwedd Mawr. I have never quite had an adventure such as this. If you want to get away from it all and not have to worry about anything else, this is for you. The owner of the property was wonderful, and was very keen to make sure my Wife and me were okay, although he does not live at the property, so you are left alone to do as you want. We will return!
