  • “A great cottage - very well equipped, spotlessly clean,perfect location, parking was a bit tight but not too much of a challenge.”

    The bedrooms were quite warm so we appreciated the fans which were supplied. Definitely somewhere that we would happily return to.

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.

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.
