  • "A great place to stay"

    Reviewed by RichardMay 2022

  • "Its really lovely place to stay ."

    My kids 5 and 8 year old enjoyed a lot. Absolutely stunning view and we loved it overall.

  • "Perfectly situated accommodation for the Talyllyn and Dolgoch Falls."

    Beautiful area for walking, plenty of places to visit both on the doorstep but also a good base for trips further afield. Will definitely stay again.

  • "The try is misleading as the building is divided into 6 flats, all of which are quite small ad separated by very the walls."

    Each flat is however excellently kitted out and this is really good. We had excessive heat but the sleeping downstairs, living upstairs was best for night time temperatures/sleeping. Other guests said it was great value but I simply did not know. The flat was superficially clean, but there was litter from previous guests remaining. Also the location is fantastic with the beautiful falls behind lulling you off to sleep. For runners, there is a great path above the railway line into the hills giving an excellent view over Cadir Idris which gives a nice out and back.

  • "Dolgoch Falls cottage is comfortable with everything you need for a relaxing holiday."

    The falls and woodland behind the cottage are amazing. This was our second visit to the cottage and will definitely be booking again.

  • "This little cottage is positioned in one of the most lovely places in Wales, walking out to the falls, looking at the hills - just lovely!"

    The cottage is snug, has most things that you need, was beautifully clean, with lots of welcome information and friendly tips about the local area however the damp smell was very strong. It is better with windows and doors open and the weather was lovely so we had a great break away.

  • "A lovely cottage in a gorgeous location close to many beautiful areas."

    Immaculate with everything you could possibly need for a very comfortable holiday. It would be helpful if communal steps to garden and ramp could be improved as they are rather high for an older dog, also an additional rail at base of fencing to garden would make this area much safer both for pets and children.

  • "Great facilities and every thing in the cottage was listed and labelled for easy excess."

    We were lucky to get good weather. All the attractions are closer, so it's a perfect place for a holiday with any preference. We were travelling with our 5year old ASD child and he had a bad morning on the day we were leaving. We were an hour late to leave the cottage leaving the owners outside waiting for us to leave so they can start preparing the cottage for the next customer. Main thing was they really understood the situation and had no complains. Really appreciate their patience.

  • "A week in this delightful upside down cottage is not enough,by far the best equipped holiday home we have ever stayed in."

    Fantastic location near the falls. Owners responded immediately to questions and enquiries. A comfortable house with exceptional facilities. Most definitely be re booking and would highly recommend this cottage to anyone.

  • "We had a lovely time, the cottage was spacious and had all the facilities we needed to make dinner etc."

    The bed was rather hard but that is simply a 'taste' thing and is different for everyone. There was an ensuite toilet, which ran off a pump/electric system, this at times did not smell very nice as the pipes/stop valve where situated behind the double bed. It was nice to have two toilets but I think the toilet should maybe have been a wardrobe/storage room. We all had a lovely time and enjoyed sight seeing, the waterfall was lovely and it was nice to see the train. Some neighbours didn't read the signage that was up and their children kept running up and down the balcony/wooden deckng making it rather noisy at times but all in all we had a lovely time, Barmouth beach was lovely and we enjoyed two meals at The Railway Inn in Abergnolwyn, highly recommend this pub. Thank you to the owners of the cottage for a fab holiday.

  • "Maybe a mention of the steep staircase from the bedrooms up to living quarters ..."

    Maybe a mention of the steep staircase from the bedrooms up to living quarters wouldn't go amiss, as although my wife & I managed OK , It could be a bit restricting to lesser abled persons, apart from that we were very pleased with everything else

  • "We spent 5 days at Dolgoch Falls in April 19 with 2 adults and an 18 month old."

    Comms before arrival were brilliant and Dave had set up a stair gate for us for when we arrived. The apartment had absolutely everything we needed, loads of information on all the local area as well as some really useful walking books. We had a great stay, would highly recommend Dolgoch Falls and would happily visit again in the future.

  • "The location was stunning and very peaceful ."

    The cottage was so comfortable and had all that we needed . It was refreshing to be away from the hectic way of normal life to slow down and relax. The beach was a short drive away and our dog loved being in the water and on the sand. I would recommend Dolgoch to anyone who wants a rural retreat in stunning Wales.

  • "Cottage in beautiful surroundings but was a little too small for 4 adults, decor a little tired and scruffy, and also not very clean."

    We arrived at 3pm and the cleaners were still in the property. Needs a bigger fridge, due to proximity of the property and no nearby shops we arrived with plenty of food for the week as the property was advertised as having a fridge freezer, when we arrived we were greeted with the smallest fridge, just big enough for a days worth of food.

The property

Tywyn 5 miles.

Situated at the base of a wooded valley, with mountain views from the front and Dolgoch Falls behind, this wonderful holiday home is at the end of a terrace of purpose-built holiday homes.

It makes the perfect base for families and groups of friends exploring the Snowdonia National Park, just a short drive from the seaside town of Tywyn and the sweeping sandy beaches of Cardigan Bay.

Accessed via an external staircase to the side, or along a wooden boardwalk to the rear of the properties which offers ground floor access, this wonderful holiday home has an upside-down layout over two floors.

There are two bedrooms, one of which offers an en-suite WC, and a family bathroom on the ground floor.

On the first floor there is a kitchen and a sitting room with a dining area, where you can sit and enjoy views of the mountains.

Outside, you can sit in the communal lawned area and listen to the babble of the stream that runs adjacent to the garden, where a gate leads to a streamside path, or enjoy a walk to the top of the three levels that make up Dolgoch Falls.

Listen out for the Talyllyn stream train as it passes over the waterfall ravine, and explore the valley with a ride on the narrow gauge railway from the nearby station.

The area is set within the Snowdonia National Park and boasts diverse and striking scenery; the sandy beaches and dunes of Tywyn, with its promenade, and the extensive waters of Talyllyn Lake rising up to the breathtaking peak of Cader Idris and the surrounding mountains.

You are ideally placed to explore both the mountains of Snowdonia, lakeside walks and Cardigan Bay, with its beautiful sandy beaches, and the area offers various outdoor activities, such as pony trekking, bird spotting or star gazing.

Why not take the 18-mile drive to the Dyfi Osprey Project, or perhaps take time out to visit the Centre of Alternative Energy for a glimpse into the future, just 14 miles away near Machynlleth.

You are just 15 miles from two pretty market towns of Dolgellau and Machynlleth, which is considered to be the ancient capital of Wales.

A short drive will take you to one of many car parks at the foot of Cader Idris, where you can park up if you are tempted to conquer the 19th highest mountain in Wales, just seven miles away, or a little further afield, take a trip to Barmouth with its picturesque harbour and beautiful Mawddach Estuary.

Travel through Tywyn and along the coastline to Fairbourne, with its stretches of sandy beaches.

The perfect retreat for enjoying the diverse landscape of the Snowdonia National Park, and the mystical Dolgoch Falls.

Note: This property is next to Ref. 923758, together they sleep 10.

About the location


Aberdovey 4 miles; Dolgellau 20 miles.

The tranquil town of Tywyn lies on the sweep of Cardigan Bay, perched on the end of the imposing Cader Idris mountain range where the landscape tumbles into the sea on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park. The promenade and town are all on one level, ideal for that gentle evening stroll by the clear blue water of the Bay. Shopping in Tywyn is a pleasure, with a regular open-air market, and local shops offering a wide range of local produce and gifts. The proximity to mountains and sea means the town also offers a wide variety of activities, from mountaineering to surfing, and the area offers leisurely rambles through the beautiful countryside. Slightly further afield lie the towns of Dolgellau and Aberdovey (with its golf course), while attractions such as Harlech Castle, Llanfair Slate Caverns and the Talyllyn Railway, together with the sandy beaches of the Cambrian coast make this an ideal location for a relaxing break.
