Outside The Old Rectory on the lake there is a very quiet lane – ten vehicles a day is seen as a rush! This four gated single tarmac road goes round to the top of the lake and was perceived by the Visit Wales disability officer as a great place for wheelchairs users as it is so flat and for those who are visually impaired as the sounds of the wildlife – both on, off and above the lake – are incredible.
Our Rectory Retreat has been especially created with the needs of wheel chair users in mind. It is on one level and there is a wet room ensuite. Parking is within feet of the double doored entrance.
We are equidistant between Machynlleth, Tywyn and Dolgellau – all are about 15 miles away. There is a very periodic bus service but we have an arrangement with local taxi companies – one has a vehicle especially designed for those in wheel chairs.
Mobile phone reception is patchy but we do have a landline which we are more than prepared to offer guests. If arriving by train from Machynlleth or Tywyn we can easily arrange collection.
