Bron Yr Aur Cottage Bron-Yr-Aur is an 18th century stone cottage located just to the north of Machynlleth.

During the 1950′s the cottage was used as a holiday home by the family of Led Zeppelin singer Robert Plant.

This retreat became to birthplace of their 3rd album, Led Zeppelin III.

The cottage is also known as Bron-Y-Aur, after being misspelt on the Led Zeppelin album, providing obvious inspiration for the song Bron-Y-Aur Stomp.

It is also claimed that daughter of guitarist Jimmy Page, Scarlett, was conceived at Bron-Yr-Aur cottage after they had finished writing That’s The Way.

During their stay, the house had no running water or electricity, with the band members frequenting a local hotel once a week in order to get a shower.

For many years to cottage lay derelict in the South Snowdonia countryside, but it has now been turned into a family home.

Anyone who wishes to see the cottage is asked to respect the fact that this is now someone’s home, and may therefore only be able to view it from the road.
