  • “This is a really lovely house with a private garden which has wonderful views.”

    The house is spacious and very comfortable and the hosts are extremely welcoming and hospitable. There is fabulous walking right from the door. We had a super week and plan to return again as soon as we can.

The property

Dolgellau 5.9 miles.

Set amidst the wonderful landscape of the Snowdonia National Park, boasting breath-taking views of Cadair Idris and within striking distance of the coast, is the traditional cottage of Dwynant.

This charming holiday home has been designed to offer a rural escape for family and friends or a base in which to enjoy all of the outdoor adventure that this part of North Wales offers, including both coast and countryside settings.

Soak up the views of the secluded valley before venturing into the agrarian-style kitchen, where a traditional AGA takes centre stage before all of the essentials you could possibly need for a self-catered stay, including a conventional electric oven and hob, a dishwasher, a fridge/freezer and microwave, as well as a spacious dining area to seat all of your loved ones.

After an action-packed day, relax into your evening within the home-away-home sitting room, where you can curl up on the plush seating arrangement with an oil-fired log-effect stove filling the room with a gentle warmth during those winter evenings.

Younger guests of the group will be delighted by the additional snug that this holiday accommodation plays host to, where they can tune into the TV or play some board games brought from home.

As the evening draws to a close, make your way up the staircase where three well-presented bedrooms await you.

Here, you will find a double bedroom with built–in storage and a spacious single bedroom.

Concluding the first-floor is another double bedroom, where you can look forward to waking up each morning to pretty views of the river below and a family bathroom, complete with a shower over bath, basin and WC.

If you don’t feel like cooking one evening, head into nearby Dolgellau where you will be spoilt for choice by the eateries that await you, catering to all palettes, as well as shops for picking up the essentials.

For those feeling adventurous, you will find a plethora of footpaths from the doorstep of the cottage, as well as the magnificent Cadair Idris or travel further field to hike Wales’ highest mountain, Snowdon.

Alternatively, the National Park has a number of outdoor opportunities for you try, including Coed y Brenin Forest Park for mountain biking and Llanfair Slate Caverns.

For a coastal day out, Barmouth is within driving distance where the mountains meet the sea, this town captures some of the most beautiful sunsets Cardigan Bay has to offer, from historic trails through the town to independent cafes and restaurants there is plenty to see and do or head further up the coast to Harlech.

Dwynant is wonderful retreat that you will be delighted with, any time of the year.
