  • "We had a great holiday and the house was fantastic."

    Only downside was the mattresses need renewing on all the beds, very creaky. Next door neighbour has three dogs that bark quite a lot . We found it difficult to sleep. Great location for Bala, Barmouth and Harlech. Beaches are spectacular. Will visit again!

  • "The house was spotlessly clean and really well stocked with cookware/glasses etc."

    The beds were unfortunately very creaky so if either of us moved in the night it woke the other one up which was a shame as both couples didn't sleep well throughout the holiday because of this. The only other issue we had is that the next door neighbors have several dogs in the back yard which barked constantly from 7am and every time one of us opened the back door it started the barking again which was a real irritation throughout the holiday. For this reason I wouldn't book this property again which is a shame as I know you can't do anything about neighbours but it would put me off.

  • "Just arrived home from a week in Dolgellau after a fabulous holiday."

    5 adults and 1 Jack Russel all stayed in the property which more then meet all our needs. Lovely location in Dolgellau with easy access to the local area including Barmouth, Bala, Llangollen. Would definitely recommend this house!

  • "We have had a great holiday in Dolgellau."

    The house is exceptionally clean and tidy and has all the facilities we needed. It is decorated to a very high standard. The owners were more than helpful if we needed any advice. Dolgellau is a great place..there are some quirky little shops in the town, nice cafes and pubs and plenty of walks and mountains locally. We also found plenty of things further afield for 3 teenagers to do..Zipworld was a great adventure and Abersoch good for surfing. There are beautiful beaches closer..Harlech, Twywn, and Barmouth were favourites. The scenery from Arnant is spectacular. It was a great house to come back to after a busy day of activities.

  • "We parked on the road on the front side of the house, but there has been no space all week to park at the back of the property."

    Parking seems to be ok if you are not back too late from a trip out. The property was very comfortable, we had a cake and message waiting for us from the owners which was a nice touch. Everything was easy to find in the kitchen and I soon worked out the oven, hob, etc. Lots of storage in the bedrooms. Internet was a bit hit and miss at times. Wonderful base for exploring, Barmouth was beautiful, the precipice walk was breathtaking, Caernarfon castle was well worth a visit. Dolgellau is beautiful. Overall we have really enjoyed our first visit to wales.

The property

A delightful 1960s semi-detached property in a slightly elevated position giving access to some stunning views over the town and distant countryside.

Renovated to a high standard, with a fresh and neutral decor, with the light walls and oak doors, whilst the first floor has a touch of Art Deco style, giving the property that homely vibe throughout.

The sitting room boasts a lovely gas fire to keep you warm during those chilly evenings, whilst you sink into the provided sofas and enjoy a relaxing evening in front of the TV.

Step through to the open-plan kitchen and dining area with ample seating for families to gather over a home-cooked meal, or to enjoy a family game night, whilst the kitchen itself is amply-equipped with everything you could need to cook up a storm.

There are three bedrooms on the first floor, that consist of two doubles and one twin, all of which are individually styled, with warming colours and fabrics that complement each other, with lovely views across the town and hillside scenery.

Delight in the family bathroom, providing an elegant bath and shower over, so you can enjoy a relaxing soak of an evening, or a quick shower in the morning to prepare you for the day ahead.

In the summer, take a snack or a refreshing drink out to the enclosed garden area and simply let the astounding countryside scenery soak in.

Dolgellau is a lovely historic market town, with an array of independent shops, supermarkets, eateries and public houses for your amenities.

Situated within the Snowdonia National Park, you have easy access to a number of nearby tourist attractions, including the magnificent Coed-y-Brenin forest park area, with plenty of trails for mountain biking and hiking, stretching from 12 to 38 kilometres.

Discover a variety of tourist attractions near the historic mining town of Blaenau Ffestiniog, such as the exciting Zip World and Bounce Below, offering thrilling zip wire rides - perfect for the whole family to get involved with.

You are ideally placed for exploring the wonderfully expansive coastline, with lovely sandy beaches where families can spend the day relaxing in the hot afternoon sun whilst their pets and little ones run freely.

After all this sightseeing, return to Arnant for a relaxing evening with your loved ones in front of the warming gas fire.
