This gorgeous Georgian guest house is in the pretty southern Snowdonia village of Pennal between Aberdyfi and Machynlleth (it’s the ultimate coast and country location).

It’s furnished and decorated in a contemporary, understated way, with soothing colours, artworks, lush fabrics and period features such as wooden shutters, wall panelling and cast-iron fireplaces.

But that’s just half of the story. The enterprising couple also run Glan yr Afon/Riverside, a stylish - and very popular - restaurant based at the village’s 16th-century inn. Breakfast is served here (it’s just a two minute walk from Llety Brynawel) - and we’re confident that you’ll be back for lunch or dinner. Or both.
