General Remarks - Found on the outskirts of the village of Corris and adjacent to the main A487 linking Machynlleth to Dolgellau and Tywyn, this property is ideally located offering potential to increase the existing business.

Close to the Snowdonia National Park, the area is very popular with tourists and visitors seeking outdoor pursuits. Machynlleth is about 4 miles away, in the pretty Dyfi Valley, a UNESCO protected Biosphere, and the World renowned Centre for Alternative Technology (CAT) is 31/2 miles away.

The Braich Goch is an attractive detached property of traditional stone and slate construction with a rendered exterior with its upper elevation in a mock tudor style. The original building has been extended over the years and has a range of outbuildings latterly used as a mountain bike store, beer cellar and fuel store. To the other side of the highway is a wide parking area for upto 17 vehicles and a pleasant well maintained garden with lower garden area enjoying a pleasant view of the Corris Valley.

The accommodation is found over 3 floors with spacious bar and games room (48) with attractive dining room (26), well fitted kitchen and separate seating area (26).
