    Pen y Braich is somewhere I've stayed on quite a few occasions. It's certainly worth booking for the surrounding views of the unspoilt countryside. If you want quiet seclusion with no near neighbours then this is definitely the place for you. Bala, Welshpool and Dolgellau are three of the nearest towns. They're usually buzzing with people and tourists. There's plenty of pubs and cafes in all of them. Dolgellau is perhaps the nicest of them all with its pretty old brickwork and narrow ancient streets. It's very close to the Cardigan Bay coastline and the beaches and water are clean and safe. Welshpool is good for supermarkets and shops. There's a large Tescos which stocks most of what people will need. There's a large Aldi, B&M and Morrisons too. There's lakes aplenty near the cottage. Lake Vyrnwy is a 10 minute drive and has a shaded, flat road to walk along. Bala Lake is impressive as are many others close to the Cader Idris, near Dolgellau. The Coed-y-Brenin forest is fantastic for walks, mountain-biking and for all of its waterfalls (Pystyll Cain, Rhaeadr Mawddach). Walkers will have masses of trails to explore. It's a walkers' paradise around the cottage and beyond. Southern Snowdonia is perhaps one of the most beautiful parts of all of the United Kingdom. Sites well worth checking out are Castell y Bere, Harlech Castle, Mary Jones' Chapel and Home, Portmeirion, Porthmadog, Criccieth Castle, Aberdyfi, the Centre for Alternative Technology, Coed-y-Brenin Visitors' Centre and so on. But Shropshire is also a powerful draw and there's plenty of wonderful small towns to explore such as Clun, Bishop's Castle, Much Wenlock, Chirk and Ironbridge. Shrewsbury is always a delight and has masses of cafes, restaurants and shops to explore. People should also head to the ruins of the nearby ancient Roman town of Wroxeter - it was the subject of a Channel 4 show and a replica of a Roman villa was built there. A local hotel, near the local vineyard also does authentic Roman type banquets (The Wroxeter Hotel) or good afternoon teas - whichever you prefer. There's also a small local shop and post office in the nearest village of Llwydiarth. The owner is very pleasant and amenable. There's also a small petrol station there.

    We had a great time. Cottage was warm and comfy with plenty of space and facilities for us and our 5 daughters. The layout suited us and the location was great. Felt more remote than it actually was so we were able to walk to the local shop. Would live to visit again :-)

    Lovely time. Had a beautiful break with my family. Shame nowhere in walking distance with young children but a lovely time had by all nevertheless.

    Lovely cottage and location. No heating and had to keep using emersion heater for hot water. Contacted caretaker who tried to get it sorted but the owner was away so nothing could be done. Had to use log burner for heat. There were also two oil radiators but not really good enough for a party that had an 84 year old and 3 young children. Resorted to bathing children in kitchen sink. Loved where the cottage was though. Would probably stay again in the summer and when children were older

    Pen y Braich is a fantastic, spacious cottage, hidden away in the hills of Mid Wales. It's in a secluded position and has excellent views of the surrounding countryside. I've stayed here many times before, and the cottage makes for the perfect getaway for a short break or even longer. Lake Vyrnwy is the nearest local landmark. (Rowing boats can be hired from the nearby Lake Vyrnwy Hotel). But Snowdonia is but a short drive away, as is Welsh border country. On my last visit, I spent many pleasant hours rambling in the Coed y Brenin, near Dolgellau. It's also an excellent outdoor haven for mountain bikers. The cottage is close to Cardigan Bay and miles of wonderful shoreline. The cottage is certainly an ideal base for walkers and ramblers. I'm a keen walker myself. Trails of interest nearby are Glyndwr's Way, the Mawddach Trail, Wales Coastal Path, Offa's Dyke Path, the Severn Way and the Shropshire Way. There's a myriad of walking trails all over the area. Sketchmap and Ordnance Survey online should be consulted before arriving, so as to map out some good routes.

    Had a great holiday in this lovely house. The garden is fantastic but it does get a bit boggy after it's rained.
