Machynlleth Holidays |

Choose from a variety of accommodation to suit your stay

The historic market town of Machynlleth stands at the head of the beautiful Dyfi estuary in mid Wales with a population of around 2,000. An ideal base for getting out and exploring the Dyfi Valley, Snowdonia National Park, Tal-y-Llyn Railway, and much more. You’ll be sure to find something to see and suit the whole family on a Machynlleth holiday.

Even though the town is small, it has a wealth of rich history and it was here that Owain Glyndwr was crowned the Prince of Wales in 1404. A festival takes place annually to celebrate the Prince’s life and a stroll around the ancient town presents numerous historic buildings. The medieval town house known as Parliament House is now an information centre about Owain Glyndwr and the Royal House building was built in the 14th century and has links to Charles I.

A relaxed stroll around the town provides an eclectic mix of facilities for visitors. There are lovely local and independent shops, cosy pubs and weekly markets offering up the finest delicacies. A multi-arts complex featuring exhibitions, concerts and festivals is a great venue to visit and maybe you’ll be lucky enough to catch a Welsh music, classical, or jazz show when you drop by. Just 3 miles north of Machynlleth is the Centre for Alternative Technology. This visitor centre prides itself on demonstrating practical solutions for sustainability and has a range of interesting and interactive displays. Great fun for the kids, with the added benefits of learning along the way!

For the more active amongst us, Machynlleth boasts several of the best mountain bike trails in Wales. There are lots of fantastic routes for all abilities right from the centre of town and a purpose built single track which starts in the Dyfi forest and heads to the north. Walkers are also very well catered for with walks within the Dover Valley and hillsides. You can join the Glyndwr Way National Trail which celebrates welsh culture and natural history spanning 135 miles. Open moorland, forests, lakes, reservoirs, and farmland are all waiting to be discovered when you begin your adventures along this route. If you like to be beside the water, you can head to the Clywedog Reservoir which is a superb spot for sailing and fishing or take a short drive through the Dyfi Valley. If you drive the ten mile route down to the Dyfi estuary through to Pennal, and onto Aberdyfi, you will find great rest areas to enjoy a paddle in the Irish Sea or wander the glorious golden sands.
