The Property

Dinas Mawddwy 2 miles. A picturesque farmhouse, situated on a 500-acre organic farm, 2 miles from Dinas Mawddwy. Ysgubor has been extended to create a delightful, spacious property with a wealth of original features including magnificent oak beams and doors, exposed stone walls, a lovely inglenook fireplace, slate flagged floors and woodburners, which all help create a real welcoming atmosphere.

The location is a paradise for walkers, ramblers, mountain bikers and birdwatchers, who can all enjoy the owner's private mountains (mounts Graig Wen and Gribyn, both over 2000') and the rest of Snowdonia beyond, while green fields surrounding the property are perfect for playing football or cricket in the summer sun. Nearby Dolgellau offers a good range of shops, pubs and restaurants, or discover the sandy beaches, castles, golf courses and mountain railways of the region.

The hosts were charming, without interfering and went out of their way to assist us. The hot tub and pool table were great fun. The cottage is set in stunning scenery, with lots of good local walks.

Ms Gwilliam, Whyteleafe, March 2014

Wonderful holiday, great place with plenty of good walks. Hot tub was great to relax in.

Mrs Kelly, Wirral, August 2013

The property is situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty on a working sheep farm whose owners are most welcoming and friendly. The property is very spacious and ideal for a large family. It has lots of character with interesting nooks and crannies, four poster bed, log burning fires, wooden ceiling beams, slate floors etc. There are plenty of activities close by. We all fell in love with the place and can't recommend it highly enough for a great family holiday.

Mrs Hancock, Bath, May 2013

Great, well equipped cottage in beautiful and peaceful location - fantastic views. We stayed in the largest king room with four poster and massive roll top bath. Generous living space, good outdoor terrace for BBQ's and the hot tub is a nice addition. Friendly and helpful owners living next door so easily available if needed. We traveled with two babies who thoroughly enjoyed helping the owners feed the lambs, which was a real treat for two city boys.
