    Property Details


    The property is conveniently located on the south side of Furnace, which lies on level ground close to Ynyshir Nature RSPB Reserve and the golden sandy beaches of Borth, Ynyslas where the Dyfi Valley opens to the Snowdonia National Park. Furnace is a hamlet in Ceredigion, Wales on the A487 trunk road from Machynlleth to Aberystwyth, near Eglwysfach. It is the location of the Dyfi Furnace, used from the 1750s to the 19th century to make pig iron with charcoal as fuel.
