Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 5
In the Dyfi Valley, Cemmaes is a pretty village 7 miles east of Machynlleth. Gorffwysfa is a characterful Georgian, detached house, built of stone, adjacent to St Tydecho's church. Sympathetically restored, maintained and modernised through the years, the house has many original features: Beamed, deep fireplaces; some old oak and elm doors, stairs and floorboards; bread oven; cast iron railings to the symmetric, elegant frontage, with pretty porch and windows. Gorffwysfa has well-planted gardens, which are bordered to one side by the ancient wall of the lovely old church yard (quiet neighbours!) Cemmaes is a rural village, with good facilities, but is also well-connected to towns, coast, and mountains; and the Dyfi Valley itself is renowned for fishing, cycling, sheep-farming, small businesses, wildlife, and a lively community spirit.
