Gwyndu Cottage (white black cottage in English), situated in the heart of the picturesque welsh village of Meifod in the glorious Mid-Wales countryside.

The cottage was built circa 1700 and is one of the oldest cottages in Meifod, and although renovated to modern standards has retained its cottage charm with cosy rooms, low ceilings, exposed beams and a log burner. We are still trying to trace its history, but we know that during the 19th century the kitchen side of the property was a cobbler’s shop.

Outside there is a south facing cottage garden with an outdoor dining area, and a covered outdoor area ideal for drying wet clothes and fishing equipment or securely storing 4 bicycles. There are also washing facilities in the garage for hosing off dirty bicyles or walking boots. Behind the rear garden is a small paddock in which my Hebridean Sheep live (if you would like to use the paddock during your stay please let me know and I will remove the sheep).

Gwyndu Cottage sleeps 4 people, one room with a king size bed and the other with 2 singles which can be zipped together to form another king size bed, just let me know when booking if you want the single beds linking together. There is a modern bathroom with a heated towel rail, electric shower and a bath.

The kitchen has a fridge freezer, microwave, fan oven and induction hob.

There is free on street parking outside the cottage. The nearest train station is in Welshpool (which is about 15 minutes away).

There are many walks and cycle routes in the area and there is excellent fly fishing on the River Vyrnwy and Banwy in season and some people use the River Vyrnwy for wild swimming during the summer. Meifod also has community tennis courts and day, week or annual ticket can be obtained at a low cost from the post office/village shop. Along with the post office/village shop, Meifod also has a pub which serves food, church, chapel and the COBRA rugby club. Tesco, Sainsburys and Asda all deliver to Meifod.
