    Beds were nice and comfy too. If we had been staying in summer we would have been quite happy. Why weren’t we? The house was REALLY cold. All of our party had lived in very old houses and are not people who need a house to be hot all the time. However this house was really cold all the time. Why? The heating is simply not up to the task of making it comfortable in winter. The electric heaters hardly gave out any heat at all and you couldn’t turn them up as the controls were disabled - I doubt they would have worked anyway as they were very small and not located in the right places in the rooms anyway. The house is very draughty which I would expect a bit from an old house and is needed to keep a house dry but this was quite bad. There was 2 log burners to use but only a handful of logs supplied which was only enough for a couple of hours. The big one in the dining room used so many logs to even warm the room enough to be slightly comfortable we had to buy £40 worth of logs from local places just to keep that room warm. We didn’t use the lounge to save logs and spent most of the time huddled round this big log burner to keep warm. However it wasn’t very good as it was open backed and heated the kitchen at the same time. It did have some pipes leading from it which heated the hallway and bathroom radiators but these only became slightly warm even after having the fire going for hours. The bedrooms were therefore quite cold. If it had been any colder we would have gone home to be honest. We were only left half a roll of toilet paper for each toilet which was a bit stingy and we had to go out and buy more the day we arrived. Overall - nice place in the summer (possibly) but I would not go back in the winter unless big changes are made to the heating system.

The property

South Lodge dates back to the 1750's and was formerly one of the gatehouses at the bottom of the mile-long drive to Cors y Gedol Hall.

This wonderful detached cottage is situated on the outskirts of the North Wales village of Dyffryn Ardudwy, and enjoys a lovely southerly aspect to the front with distant sea views.

Well-appointed throughout to provide a cosy and comfortable feel, South Lodge is the perfect place for a family getaway to this beautiful part of the Snowdonia National Park.

The cottage offers spacious, homely holiday accommodation and has a wealth of character, lovingly renovated and maintained over the years by the present owners.

It offers an extremely warm Welsh welcome; the charm is in abundance, starting with the sitting room which has plenty of comfortable seating and boasts a lovely little woodburning stove, extending through to the conservatory.

The kitchen is well-appointed with plenty of work surfaces and cupboards, the dining room is well-proportioned and is a lovely place to sit as a family and enjoy a late supper or a more leisurely breakfast before setting out on a day’s adventure.

The addition of a second woodburning stove makes this the perfect place to sit and relax with your feet up, enjoying a good book, while the children play in the garden before bedtime.

There is a ground floor cloakroom for your convenience, with the main family shower room located on the first floor.

Three bedrooms, all individually styled, are arranged on the first floor, with the two main bedrooms enjoying distant sea views and the master bedroom boasting a super king-size electric adjustable bed.

These beds provide the equivalent couple's sleeping space of a standard super king-size mattress, but with one big difference: each sleeper has their own long single mattress, fully adjustable to ensure a good night's sleep.

Outside, to the side of the property, is a paved patio area with picnic table and to the front there is a large enclosed garden with mature shrubs and borders, and a large oak offering a lovely shaded spot.

The garden is a great place for the children to play.

The village of Dyffryn Ardudwy has two pubs, a cafe, a garage, shop and local butchers and also a Post Office for sending a post card.

All within easy reach and just a short drive away, you will find golden beaches and sand dunes that stretch for miles along this stunning coastline.

There are some lovely walks from the cottage and it is in an excellent location for a seaside holiday, close to miles of beautiful sandy beaches offering wonderful water sports, as well as cycling, walking, fishing and golf.

Also close by is Harlech, with its majestic 13th century castle, now a World Heritage Site and the most impressive of all the castles built in North Wales by Edward I.

A little further are the full delights of the Snowdonia National Park.

South Lodge is wonderful for a get away-from-it-all break and an ideal base to explore this part of North Wales and the Snowdonia National Park any time of year.

About the location


Harlech 5 miles; Barmouth 5 miles.

The pleasant village of Dyffryn Ardudwy quietly nestles between The Rhinogs, part of the Snowdonia Mountains, and the stunning golden beaches of the North Wales coastline. The unusual positioning of this charming village results in it having its own mild climate, as well as offering good local shops and pubs. The surrounding area has an exciting array of wildlife and birds including soaring buzzards. The small town of Harlech is just 4 miles away, dominated by its majestic 13th century castle which is a World Heritage Site, and the most impressive of all the castles built in North Wales by Edward I. Popular with golfers due to its famous Royal St. David's course, Harlech also boasts an excellent variety of amenities including some good quality restaurants. Nearby Barmouth offers an amazing Panorama Walk with breathtaking views and also a harbour from which you can enjoy a ferry to Fairbourne for a ride on the miniature railway or a boat trip out to sea to try mackerel fishing. With the delights of Snowdonia National Park and beautiful Cardigan Bay to discover, this is a fantastic holiday location at any time of the year.
