  • "We had a great stay, wonderful views with a nice, relaxed atmosphere."

    Lovely to have the sheep visiting the garden (good job we closed the gate). Good walks from the door (right on the edge of the National Park). All equipment, crockery and furnishing of high quality. Would stay again.

  • "Lovely peaceful setting and good base to visit the many attractions of North Wales."

    Very comfortable house with quality furnishings and an attractive, well kept garden. It was thoroughly cleaned - one of the visibly cleanest houses we've stayed in which we were very grateful for. We would love to return one day.

  • "We had the most wonderful week at Nant Y Gwernan."

    What a very special house in a beautiful location. It was the most peaceful and relaxing place. We loved sitting by the lake, watching the heron and listening to the sheep in the valley (and no other noise at all!). The bed was the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. The house is fantastic - with everything you need for your stay. Exceptionally clean and comfortable. We were so pleased to be able to bring our dog to such a lovely place. The owners even left a dog bed, bowls, blanket, towel and dog treats - which was just great and very helpful. The house is located very close to the Pony Path to Cadair Idris (walkable from the house) and also easy driving distance to several amazing beaches (Barmouth, Harlech, Fairbourne). We also walked along the Mawddach Trail, with a good lunch spot at the George pub, looking over the toll bridge at Penmaenpool near Dolgellau. This is a wonderful part of Snowdonia and the house is in the perfect location to enjoy the national park.

  • "A really beautiful cottage with a beautiful setting on."

    A Snowdonia lake under the Cader Idris that you can walk up from the cottage. A stream half a mile down the road and beautiful lakes further along the lane perfect for cycling and exploring. Out in the Snowdonia countryside with Dolgellau 2.5 miles away for all your needs. Perfect!

    Fabulous setting. What more could we of asked for.

  • "The cottage is of a very highly standard - comfy and cozy throughout with amazing views."

    There are lots of local walks and the beach at Barmouth is a great place to take the dogs (summer restrictions apply). The Last Inn in Barmouth is lovely and is dog friendly. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it.

  • "Absolutely amazing setting and cottage, home from home."

    Did not want to leave. All the luxury comforts one would expect in 5* Hotel accommodation plus more. This cottage is one to try and never forget! Exceeded expectations on all levels. This cottage would suit the Artist, Photographer, Walker, Climber, a great place to relax and more. Will be booking again.

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.
