    “When planning this holiday I was looking for somewhere which was accessible for people with limited mobility and I struck gold with The Annexe.”

    Communication with Sarah was excellent. On arrival we were immediately made to feel welcome by the whole family (including the dog). The Annexe far exceeded expectations. Spacious, clean, well equipped, comfortable accommodation in a beautiful setting. The main bedroom is on the ground floor and has a spacious en suite with a good sized shower. This room looks out onto the lawn leading down to the river.. a view i could never tire of. Upstairs there are 2 more bedrooms and a bathroom.. all clean and comfortable. The sitting room is stunning , a large room with a woodburner and a good supply of logs and bi-folding doors out onto the lawn and the views i mentioned earlier. The kitchen has everything you need and more.. even a wine cooler. There was a very generous hamper with Welsh cakes, bread, milk, chocolates, tea, coffee, wine and more.. this was a lovely touch. There is no mobile signal but there is a decent WiFi provided. There are laundry facilities too - they even provided the capsules for the washing machine. Our hosts were welcoming and accommodating whilst respecting our privacy and social distancing . Their 2 boys were extremely polite and sociable. We would highly recommend the Annexe. If you need level access accomodation this is perfect. There are wheelchair/scooter accessible walks within a mile from the accomodation too. We are already planning our next visit..

The property

A delightful cottage adjoining the owner’s home, located in a semi-rural setting, this property is surrounded by a myriad of walks and beautiful scenery in the scattered village of Ganllwyd.

Coed y Brenin is only 3.5 miles away and only 5 miles to Dolgellau.

This lovely cottage provides a great base and excellent holiday accommodation for couples, friends or a family who wish to explore this lovely area.

Sympathetically refurbished and renovated to a good standard, this charming cottage is lovingly maintained and well-presented by the owner, and maintains many of its wonderful features such slate flooring, exposed stone, ledge and brace doors and exposed beams and purlins whilst modern day comforts have been successfully incorporated without losing any of its charming appeal.

A spacious open plan kitchen with dining area welcomes you in.

The kitchen area is well-equipped and caters for all your needs and the dining area is perfect for enjoying a family meal together, there is even a cosy sitting area where you can sit quietly and finish that book!

The sitting room, once an old barn has been beautifully incorporated into the cottage and now provides a wonderful living space with a warming wood burning stove and comfy sofas.

The light and airy feel is enhanced by the high pitched ceiling and bi-fold doors which open up the whole length of the room so you can take in the garden, hillside scenery and enjoy the country air on balmy summer evenings.

There are three bedrooms, the main bedroom is on the ground floor and benefits from an en-suite shower room, and upstairs there is a twin, a single and family bathroom.

To the front of the cottage is a patio with picnic table so you can look out across the garden towards the hillside whilst enjoying alfresco dining or enjoy a morning coffee whilst relaxing in the rear courtyard.

This lovely cottage stands amidst some beautiful countryside in the Coed-y-Brenin Forest Park, which is renowned for its mountain bike routes, magnificent walking trails, spectacular waterfalls, nature reserves and other exciting outdoor pursuits.

If you don't want to venture too far from the cottage, a lovely walk down to the river offers a secluded and private area by the waters edge where you can enjoy a picnic.

There is secure bike storage and an outside washing area, making this a perfect base for biking enthusiasts. Dolgellau is 5 miles away, offering shops, pubs and restaurants for light snacks.

Alternatively, why not spend a few days relaxing on the sandy beaches at Aberdovey, Barmouth or Fairbourne?

Or explore the medieval castles at nearby Harlech and Criccieth, or slightly further afield Caernarfon. At the end of the day return to this lovely cottage to relax.

A great base anytime of the year.
