    The cottage itself was well equipped for a comfortable stay. However I would like to say that our 1st evening there enjoying the lovely cosy atmosphere of the log fire, we had night time visitor a small bat appeared and started flying around the lounge totally unexpected. However overall out of the 7 nights of our stay only 2 were bat free. Our last night was completely ruined by a total of 3 flying around in the lounge so we were unable to enjoy the cosy fire and ended up spending the entire evening in the kitchen which we were not happy about. Apparently people had mentioned seeing bats in the visitors book.

The property

Mallwyd 0.7 miles.

A traditional, stone-built detached cottage, standing on the banks of the River Dovey, which nestles between wooded hills and mountains on the edge of the village of Mallwyd, in the beautiful Dovey Valley in the Snowdonia National Park.

Featured in an online article by The Sun, this very special Mallwyd cottage is described as 'the ultimate escape' and provides stunning views of the River Dovey from both bedrooms, as well as from a wrap-around decked area outside.

It has been lovingly renovated, retaining its exposed beams and an impressive inglenook fireplace with a woodburner and an original bread oven, which all help to create a warm, cosy and romantic atmosphere throughout the cottage.

As well as having full double glazing, this Mallwyd cottage offers an ideal combination of charming original features and contemporary fixtures and fittings, perfect for a romantic break or family holiday.

If you feel like spending an evening out, there is an excellent pub just a 10-minute walk away, The Brigands Inn.

This is the perfect location for climbers, walkers, mountain bikers, fishermen and birdwatchers, as this Mallwyd cottage is surrounded by the wonderful facilities of the Snowdonia National Park as well as the magnificent coastline and sandy beaches of the nearby Cardigan Bay.

Dolgellau and Machynlleth both offer a good range of shops, pubs and restaurants, while Aberdovey and Barmouth are both very popular seaside resorts.

A charming Mallwyd cottage in a truly lovely riverside location, ideal for enjoying this beautiful part of Wales.
