    “Overall the bungalow (not a cottage) was fine, the rooms were a good size and the kitchen was well equipped.”

    It was detached, so this suited us very well, in a quiet location, great little garden overlooking the countryside. It is in a nice location with easy access to the attractions. It was great sitting outside to eat and to relax. The little sign on the grass verge was too small and not noticeable enough. The parking for 2 cars was a bit tight, as the lane was quite narrow.

    It was detached, so this suited us very well, in a quiet location, great little garden overlooking the countryside. It is in a nice location with easy access to the attractions. It was great sitting outside to eat and to relax. The little sign on the grass verge was too small and not noticeable enough. The parking for 2 cars was a bit tight, as the lane was quite narrow. The hedges may need to be cut back a bit. There were a few issues; -There were no bin bags so this was highly inconvenient and we had to then try and purchase some. It was very inconvenient having to dispose of our rubbish and recycling ourselves, it would have been better if this could have been done by the cleaner after we had checked out. It was quite difficult to find the facilities to dispose of the rubbish and recycling, as we were not locals and did not really know where to go. - There were no tea towels, so it was difficult to dry the crockery and cutlery, had we known, we would have brought some. In addition to this, there was no draining rack, which meant when we washed up we had to dry plates etc as there was no where to stack them. -The bathroom door did not have a lock, which wasn't a great problem but the spring in the door handle had gone, so the door wouldn't close at all, so kept opening, which was annoying when we were using the bathroom, as we were not with family but with another couple (friends) -The water pressure in the shower was very low, so showering was not great. -We were not told until after we booked that the dogs could not be left in the bungalow un-supervised, this would have been helpful to have known before booking, so we could have made an informed decision. -The bungalow was quite dusty as well. -The lighting in the kitchen was too dark, the spot lights need to be brighter, as it was difficult in the evening when preparing food. -The mattress in the double room was too soft for me, but my husband liked it, -The iron leaked even when it wasn't on, the ironing board needs to have a new cover.

The property

A spacious and well-presented modern detached bungalow, tucked away in the heart of the pretty hamlet of Rhoslefain in the Snowdonia National Park.

Surrounded by gardens and with fantastic countryside on the doorstep, this cottage offers great accommodation for families and couples and is an ideal base for exploring this wonderful area.

The cottage has been tastefully decorated and comfortably furnished in a contemporary style throughout, with the sitting room boasting a warm and welcoming woodburning stove, a pleasant place for everyone to gather and sit around, chatting and relaxing after a busy day walking and exploring.

The kitchen with its quartz work surfaces and spotlighting is light, airy and well equipped and enjoys a lovely view out towards the open countryside beyond the front garden.

Three spacious bedrooms with comfy beds and a modern bathroom complete the accommodation.

The garden at the rear is enclosed and being south-facing enjoys the sun for most of the day, ideal for that morning coffee, relaxing brunch or dining alfresco in the evening.

The garden at the front has a patio area with table and chairs providing further outdoor space, ideal for the children to play or just sit and enjoy the views whilst enjoying a glass of your favourite tipple and a good book!

Dolau provides a perfect base with lots of walks from the cottage and just a few minutes’ drive away you can visit Bird’s Rock in the beautiful Dysynni Valley or Cader Idris.

There are miles of sweeping sandy beaches at Tywyn and Fairbourne, all just a short drive away, or explore the towns of Dolgellau, Barmouth and Aberdovey, all within easy reach.

If you enjoy cycling, the whole area boasts bike trails and mountain biking facilities, or enjoy horse riding on the beach at the nearby stables in Fairbourne, just 7 miles away, plus you have the stunning Snowdonia National Park to explore.

For more relaxed pursuits, how about a ride on the narrow gauge Talyllyn Railway up to the mystical Dolgoch Falls?

There is so much to see and do in the area, you’ll be planning your return before you’ve even left!

About the location

RHOSLEFAIN

Tywyn 5 miles; Aberdovey 9 miles.

The small village of Rhoslefain, stands on the edge of the Dysynni Valley, at the southern end of the Snowdonia National Park, an area renowned for its sea and mountain views. Only 9 miles away is the picturesque harbour village of Aberdovey, popular for its mild climate, sandy beaches, sailing and a championship 18-hole links golf course. Aberdovey is often referred to as an "artist's paradise" with its pastel coloured cottages, small shops, inns and excellent restaurants which specialise in local seafood. The village boasts some of the finest beaches in Britain, with four miles of golden sand-dune backed shoreline running north to Tywyn, a Victorian seaside town with a promenade, putting green, leisure centre, restaurants, cafes and fish and chip shops. The beaches are popular with sunbathers, swimmers, surfers and fishermen, while the estuary attracts a wide range of watersports enthusiasts. The peaks of the Cader Idris and Aran Fawddwy ranges are within easy reach and are complemented by the charm of the Dovey and Dysynni valleys nearby. An ideal area for walkers, climbers, beachcombers and wildlife watchers, this artists' paradise is a wonderful year-round coastal location.
