Stunning property. Had everything we needed and felt like home. The garden was safe and secure and gave us piece of mind to let our dog just do his thing. Lots of guides provided for loads of walks too. The locals were lovely and made us feel right at home (and the local pub is a must visit for food)

Lovely cottage not too far from the coast but with beautiful Welsh hills around you. The kitchen is one of the best equipped Ive stayed in, Id highly recommend staying here. Perfect base for us and the pooch. If wed had better weather (it was February) wed have used the back garden more, but curling up in an evening in front of the wood burner was Read moreidyllic. Hide

This is a beautiful cottage with a large/clean shower and comfy bed! It provided a lovely base to explore the surrounding countryside and beaches. The stair gate was an helpful addition in managing the dogs and a small, secure garden meant they were safe at all times from the nearby road.

Beautiful cottage, very comfortable. Decorated tastefully. Would mention however that stairs are very steep and narrow and may be of concern to some people as no proper handrail.

We had a lovely few days at Slate Cottage. Pennal is a lovely village with Aberdovey beach only 10-12 minutes drive away and Machynlleth town a similar distance in the opposite direction. The local Riverside pub was great. Nice beer garden and fabulous food. Good walks for our dog.

Book It Book It BOOK IT. Great location really close to Aberdovy great to explore, not near many shops so prepare food for first couple of days. The local pub really friendly and well priced (also allows dogs). Really enjoyed comfortable king size bed, spotless clean and felt at home as soon as you walk in.
