  • Mr Cronin-hill

    “I think the double mattress might need replacing soon, but other than that, a fabulous place to holiday, and we loved the log fires (some thing we have at home).”

    Hopefully, we will be returning next year; a first for us to like some where so much we want to return to it.

The property

This wonderful, Grade II listed dwelling rests within the village of Arthog, offering an idyllic base for exploring this area of North Wales.

Nestled between the breath-taking Snowdonia National Park and the majestic coast, this ideally positioned cottage promises an adventure-filled getaway for a small family.

Be welcomed into the sitting room, where you will be charmed by the exposed brick wall and beams and the roaring woodburning fire, making the perfect spot for unwinding with your loved ones during a chilly winter’s evening.

Beyond here is the amply equipped kitchen, where you will be able to prepare a home-cooked meal before gathering the family around the dining table to tuck into your delicious meal.

As the evening draws to a close, choose to indulge with a warming soak within the bath tub before retiring to one of the two bedrooms, comprising of a well-presented twin bedroom and a double bedroom.

Spend a moment or two within the enclosed garden area, where you will be able to enjoy a refreshing beverage whilst enjoying the wonderful countryside views that are waiting to be explored.

If you don’t feel like cooking one evening, venture to the seaside town of Fairbourne, where you will be delighted with the small selection of pubs, eateries and shops.

Further afield is the larger town of Barmouth where you will find a larger selection of amenities and attractions including the wonderful beach and strolling along the Victorian Barmouth Railway Bridge.

For those feeling active, the Snowdonia National Park offers a magnitude of walking routes from leisurely strolls to challenging hikes, each amidst spectacular scenery.

The Old Post Office promises a wonderful escape to this picturesque part of North Wales.

About the location


Fairbourne 3 miles; Dolgellau 7 miles; Aberdovey 18 miles.

The village of Arthog is situated on the lower reaches of the beautiful Mawddach Estuary, which runs from the renowned seaside town of Barmouth to the outskirts of delightful Dolgellau, nestled beside the foothills of one of Wales' most spectacular mountains, Cader Idris. One of the most popular walking and cycling routes in Wales passes through Arthog: the 4.5 mile nature trail along the Estuary, ideal for birdwatching. Close by, the village resort of Fairbourne boasts a safe sandy beach with rock pools at either end of a two mile stretch of golden sands. The famous narrow gauge steam railway journeys through awe-inspiring scenery to a small ferry carrying foot passengers to Barmouth. Dolgellau is a splendid little town, just 7 miles away, offering a variety of shops, pubs and restaurants and is surrounded by the stunning National Park, providing wonderful walking and a range of outdoor pursuits.
