    “A great cottage with fantastic views over the estuary & lovely forest walks at the back of the cottage.”

    Cottage was well equipped and nicely furnished. I struggled to get a mobile signal in the cottage (a plus for me!), but the Wifi was very good.

The property

What a view!

Taliesin holiday house is nestled into the hillside of Bont Ddu, overlooking the Mawddach estuary and the Cadair Idris mountain range.

Come rain or shine this view will never fail to impress, whether from inside or out.

From the back of the house, you can walk for miles through the most beautiful woodland with fabulous waterfalls and the famous Clogau gold mine. The contemporary open plan living area has a comfy leather wrap-around sofa and tub chairs, a dining table and chairs, a large flat screen TV with Freesat, and a DVD player.

It also enjoys the most stunning view through the wall of floor-to-ceiling windows. The well equipped kitchen has a dishwasher, integrated fridge, electric cooker and hob, and a wood burning stove set in an inglenook fireplace. A fridge/freezer, washing machine and dryer are in the utility room. There are four bedrooms.

The large double bedroom has under-floor heating, a king size bed, 32" flat screen TV and an en suite with shower, wash hand basin and loo.

Tub chairs are positioned by the French windows, looking out towards the mountains and estuary.

There are a further three bedrooms - two king size doubles and a twin room.

All have luxurious bed linen and pretty fabrics, and the twin room has a wonderful waterfall tap over a little sink. At the back of the house, steps lead up to a pretty country garden with a pond, a summer house with furniture, and the woods. If you can tear yourself away from this delightful rural retreat, 10 minutes' drive will bring you into the gorgeous seaside town of Barmouth, where time seems to have stopped and you can still see donkeys on the beach.

A permanent seaside fairground and a great selection of shops, cafes and pubs make this a wonderful place to visit.

Dolgellau, a pretty market town, is just four miles away and has plenty of restaurants. Another place to visit if you are looking for good pub food and a famous Welsh welcome is the fantastic Mawddach Bar, just a few miles away.

The local cycling facilities are great, with the Coed y Brenin forest and cycle centre close by and the Dolgellau to Barmouth Mawddach cycle path just two miles away. Offering comfort and luxury, with all the rooms on one floor, Taliesin is perfect for families.

Its delightful country garden is awash with colour in the spring and summer, and makes the most beautiful spot in which to relax and soak up the stunning views.
