A lonely farm road leads guest up through fields of grazing sheep to this distinctive converted barn. Entering through the thick double glazed doors you are greeted by a wonderful open space that houses the kitchen diner. High vaulted ceilings sit above a luxurious oak floor. A reclaimed dining table and chairs sits proudly in the middle of the space whilst to the side, a rustic kitchen backs onto the original and exposed stonewall of the barn. A modern gas cooker is included as well as all the other crockery and utensils that you might need. But it’s fair to say that this cottage does not have the wealth of appliances that some of our other more modern cottages have. It’s all about character and sense of space in Beudy-Mach.
Opposite the entrance another double glazed door leads out onto a magnificent veranda. From this elevated position guests can look across to Cader Idris on the far side of the valley and then down over Machynlleth towards Aberdovey itself.
Back inside, a mezzanine floor splits the other end of the barn. The ground floor is reserved for the seating area. A traditional log burner commands centre stage surrounded by distinctive and carefully selected furniture and fixtures. A staircase near the front door leads us above. A wrought iron bed stands on more oak flooring and yet more funky furniture creates another spectacular space. With the curtains thrown open guests can look down onto the kitchen area and demand coffee and toast.
Back through the kitchen we enter the Eastern end of the barn. Tree bedroom here altogether. There is one smaller child’s room with a single bed plus and additional foldaway bed if required. Next door accommodates a larger double bed. There is also a small shower room in this part of the barn and a larger bathroom with wc and sunken bath. A spiral staircase leads us to the fourth and last bedroom. Another comfortable iron double bed sits under the slanted roof of the barn. Lots more individual ornaments and fixtures to enjoy in all the bedrooms.

Anyone familiar with this part of southern Snowdonia will know how spectacular the landscape is in this area. ‘A walkers paradise’ is the standard phrase reeled out, but it’s undoubtedly true in this instance. Less crowded than the slopes of Snowdon, the mountains in this part of the national park provide a real opportunity to explore the true wilderness of Wales.
A short 10 minute drive will take you into the more populated town of Machynlleth. Steeped in welsh history the town most famous resident was Owain Glyndwr, the heroic welsh rebel of medieval times. The town hosts a farmers market every Wednesday and is home to some delightful shops cafes and pubs.
Corris, another nearby village, has the well known ‘Centre for Alternative Technology’ as well as a small craft village and ‘King Arthurs Labyrinth’, an underground tour certain to capture a child’s imagination. The popular seaside towns of Aberdyfi and Towyn are a short drive to the south west. Bala, to the east, is famous for its fishing and whitewater rafting and the world renowned mountain biking trails of Coed Y Brenin are about 30 minutes to the north.
