    In Beautiful peaceful surroundings. Glenys and Alan are the perfect hosts.Very welcoming but respectful of our privacy. The cottage was very clean and comfortable and has everything you could possibly need. It is so nice we have already booked to stay again.

  • "Llety Nest is a beautifully situated property, with stunning views."

    The home is clean, cosy, well kept and comfortable. We had everything we could possibly need to make our holiday pleasurable. On arrival we were greeted by Glenys, who was warm and cheerful. Inside the cottage she had left Welsh cakes, biscuits, milk, tea and coffee for us, which were very welcome. We immediately felt at home and were able to relax fully and benefit from our time away. The area surrounding Llety Nest is idyllic. We were never short of places to visit and walks to explore, all without crowds of people. The roads are easy to travel, which my partner commented on several times! I am a tree hugger and so in my element here. Trees abound everywhere you look! This is a place where we felt at home, relaxed, happy and at ease. Thank you to Glenys and Alun for their generosity in sharing their beautiful home with others. We will be back.

  • "An excellent cottage attached to the owners’ bungalow."

    Fairly easy access off the main road, close to Dolgellau for food shopping. Completely equipped with everything one would need for a self-catering holiday. Spotlessly clean, everything in perfect working order. The utility room was an added bonus for drying out wetsuits after swimming etc. Very quiet (apart from the antics of the RAF occasionally which some folk do enjoy!), wonderful views from the property, warm (if needed), good wifi, TV reception fine, plenty of storage space for clothing etc., useful shed for bike storage. All in all we had an excellent two weeks, especially the second in the September ‘23 heatwave.

The bungalow has all the facilities you need and there is nothing lacking. It is in a fabulous location, convenient for access to the main roads but so peaceful and quiet with stunning scenery to admire. We spent many an evening sitting on the garden bench with a drink in hand admiring the mountain view in front of us. We both agreed it was one on the best self catering accommodation experiences we have had and should we find ourselves back in this area again, would have no hesitation in staying there again. We would thoroughly recommend this as a great place to stay.

    Fantastic if you want to get away and have some calm from everyday life. The photos of the cottage don't reflect the scenery of the mountains and trees surrounding the cottage. The cottage itself was very cosy and felt like a 2nd home, plenty of space for two people. Hosts are very welcoming and called us to make sure we was on the right route as the sat navs sometimes don't lead you the right way. Home made Welsh cakes for our arrival was lovely also. Being the winter period, a lot of the trains that trail around the mountains and other seasonal things to do wasn't open. But we still did a lot on our five day stay exploring the beach, waterfalls, cosy towns for shopping and so much more. We will be back in the near future! *This was our first time to Wales and booking through Skye cottages* Paris & Dean
