The Experience

A former Victorian gentleman’s residence which has been tastefully updated; sleep well in comfortable rooms full of original art and designer furniture – some have views over the Cambrian mountains, others look over the garden and big veg patch which provides much of what you eat. Breakfast on fresh eggs from their hens with your cooked breakfast or seasonal homegrown rhubarb compote with homemade granola.

There’s much to do in glorious countryside and welcoming hosts Clive and Rob can help you plan: wander 10 acres of pasture, fields and gardens, set off for gentle walks straight from the door (bring your dog too), drive to Cadair Idris for mountain hiking and a tough bike route to the summit – you’ll have brilliant lake views on a clear day. Aberdyfi and the coast is 20 miles.

Order a delicious homemade dinner – perhaps pizza with wild garlic pesto or a lamb and feta burger followed by a Welsh cheese board. Enjoy a sundowner in the garden, stargaze around the fire pit or snuggle up around the log burner with a home brewed sloe gin or vodka from the honesty bar.

Charming owners, beautiful interiors and fantastic views - I'd love to come back! I'd head out for energising walks across the Cambrian Mountains and then return to sip on drinks from the honesty bar, sample the delicious food and spend the evening stargazing around the firepit.

The neighbourhood

You’re on a quiet country lane on the outskirts of a small village. You can birdwatch from the garden – or even your own room – spot buzzards and red kites. Join The Glyndwr Way from behind the house; walk through fields and past reservoirs with superb views. There are lots of good spots for mountain biking (try Dyfi Forest) or stroll 10 minutes to the pub.

Local points of interest from Clive Sweeting

  • Aberdyfi, one of Gwynedd’s most attractive coastal villages, stands in an idyllic spot where mountains meet the sea at the mouth of the River Dyfi. The popular award-winning beach of perfect sand and the occasional sand dune extends for miles, from Aberdyf
  • Corris is a former slate village set within the Dyfi Forest & boasts a variety of attractions, including the Centre for Alternative Technology, the narrow-gauge Corris Railway, excellent fishing at Llyn Myngul, challenging walking on Cader Idris.
  • Snowdon (Yr Wyddfa in Welsh) is the highest mountain in Wales and England. It's one of our most famous and recognisable landmarks and is well worth a visit. Choose from six different paths to conquer this 1,085 metre (3,560 feet) giant
  • Coed y Brenin was the first purpose-built mountain bike centre in the UK. It is home to eight mountain bike trails, a skills area and a bike hire and retail shop. All of the mountain biking trails are waymarked and start from the visitor centre.
  • Portmeirion is situated on a private peninsula overlooking stunning coastal scenery, the Italian Riviera meets rural Wales with a riot of colour and architectural styles. Built by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, it's one of Wales' most popular attractions.
  • Powis Castle is a stunning place to visit with acres or amazing gardens and inside the castle each generation of the Herbert family has added to the magnificent collection of paintings, sculpture, furniture and tapestries. Well worth a visit. No dogs.


Clive Sweeting

Clive and Rob moved from London looking for a more peaceful way of life; they travelled to Wales every weekend for over two years while they renovated The Royston into their ‘labour of love’. They’re passionate about sharing their rural haven and welcoming guests to relax and unwind. You may also meet their cat, Rodney, and 20 or so hens clucking about.
