    “A really well put together property, done to a high standard, and immaculately clean.”

    We went as a group of two couples and it was a good size for four adults, with very comfortable settees and a good sized dining table. Whilst one of the double bedrooms is smaller, both are done very nicely. Everything had been considered and, as somebody who generally sits under a nest of blankets at home regardless of the temperature, I much appreciated having a couple of throws around the house.

    We went as a group of two couples and it was a good size for four adults, with very comfortable settees and a good sized dining table. Whilst one of the double bedrooms is smaller, both are done very nicely. Everything had been considered and, as somebody who generally sits under a nest of blankets at home regardless of the temperature, I much appreciated having a couple of throws around the house. The television is a smart one so we could access Netflix after a day out in the hills and the slimline dishwasher was much appreciated, too. The decor has been carefully put together and well coordinated but it still felt cosy and welcoming, with a good choice of lights to use in the main living space to zone it. Our friends are in the process of refurbishing themselves and were taking notes! Good powerful shower, new kitchen appliances and plenty of fridge/freezer space. The house was warm upon arrival and the thermostat was very simple to use, with the radiators heating up quickly when needed. In terms of setting, it is by the centre of Dolgellau and so walking distance from various pubs and eateries, bakeries, little shops, and a larger supermarket (though may still be smaller than you are used to!). One thing to note is that some of these are not open on Sundays, so worth checking if you are only there for the weekend and see something that looks nice. We had great food and excellent service at Y Meirionnydd and Y Sospan, as well as a very nice bakery/deli. The parking and road to the property is rather tight, as residents park along it as well, but we were able to get one car on the drive/patio and the other in front of it fine. There is a short term pay and display at the edge of town that we used briefly for one car when we came back to town for lunch between outings, and I believe also a long term one which may be useful if you do struggle to get the car in around the other parked cars. The river runs right behind the cottage, and from the skylights upstairs you can see the surrounding hills and peaks (snowy, in our case!). We didn't brave Cadair Idris because of the weather but there are plenty of nearby walks, some of which are listed in the welcome book along with a few instructions and local food and attractions. We were all pleased with how nice the property was, and would be happy to return ourselves and recommend to others.

The property

Set just off of Dolgellau's charming town centre in the Snowdonia National Park is this beautifully converted blacksmith’s cottage.

Combining stunning contemporary décor with quirky touches and with opportunities of all kinds in the surrounding area, this is a superb stay for two couples seeking a break in this incredible part of North Wales.

After entering this divine stone cottage, kick off your shoes in the hallway and step into the gorgeously finished open-plan living area.

A vibrant and colourful set up, equipped with all that you need from comfortable seating and a TV to a splendid dining table set for four and a sumptuous grey kitchen hosting a range of high-quality appliances to set you up perfectly for your stay.

The walls are marvellously touched with up-cycled wooden shelves, incorporating luscious inset lighting to add a wonderful touch.

You can even watch the River Aran trickle by as you do the washing up.

The first floor of this superb cottage presents you with two immaculate double bedrooms, lovingly furnished and with fabulous attention to detail.

After a day exploring the fascinating town of Dolgellau, indulge in a bubble bath in the luxurious family bathroom, a layout also featuring quirky inset lighting amongst the wood panelling on the side of the bath.

A few short steps bring you to the centre of the town; the attractive streets are dotted with excellent pubs, shops and restaurants, which make this a holiday base of the highest quality.

The Cadair Idris mountain sits close by for you avid hikers, while the Coed y Brenin mountain biking trail is also available.

For a day at the beach, the popular seaside resort of Barmouth is close by with its soft sandy beach and stunning harbour.

A lavish, well-placed cottage ideal for a getaway in this remarkable North Wales location.

DOLGELLAU

Fairbourne 8 miles; Barmouth 10 miles; Aberdovey 20 miles.

This small, beautiful market town is located in the heart of southern Snowdonia, between the imposing Cader Idris mountain range and the sea. It’s a superb base for a holiday - perfect for combining the many outdoor pursuits on offer in Snowdonia with relaxing days out on the soft sandy beaches of Barmouth, Fairbourne and Aberdovey. The town itself offers a good selection of shops, five pubs and a wine bar, along with a number of excellent restaurants, cafes and two bakeries, that produce fresh bread and cakes each day. Dolgellau is home to over 200 listed buildings, allegedly the highest concentration in the whole of Wales, and the town is also a designated 'cycle break centre' boasting a range of dedicated cycle routes all around the area.
