  • "Lovely house, really comfortable and warm."

    Beds were great and the whole house was spotlessly clean and really well equipped. Lovely views towards Cadair Idris. Brilliant walking weekend and would definitely stay again

  • "We had a great stay in Lleifior and fully recommend."

    The views are fantastic and the house is spacious and beautifully presented. There are 2 bedrooms on ground floor (master en suite and a small double) and 2 upstairs (a large double with sofa and the twin). There is so much to do in the area - we walked up Cadair Idris, cycled Mawddach trail and mountain bike trails at Coed y Brennin, the Zip World (the Ffestiniog one not as scary as Bethesda one) and lots of walks such as Torrent. It's a lovely area.

  • "We felt at home straight away."

    This is a beautiful, comfortable house with amazing views. The owners were so helpful and responsive to our requests and obviously wanted us to be happy and enjoy our holiday.

  • "We had a lovely stay at Lleifior."

    Very well cleaned, maintained and serviced. The beds were comfortable and the accommodation spacious. Plenty of hot water for the kitchen and bathrooms. The description did not include the cloakroom which was a bonus to find. Strong WI-FI signal. The views of the mountains were beautiful. The only slighty negative comment we could make would be that the dishwasher was sited too far away from the kitchen sink. The kitchen equipment, crockery, cutlery and cooking pans were plentiful. The welcome basked of wine, biscuits, longline milk etc. was appreciated.

  • "My family and I had a lovely week at Lleifior."

    The house is exceptional with everything you could possibly need, it is decorated tastefully and equipped to a high standard (so much so that I purchased some of the kitchen utensils I used there for my own kitchen at home) The view is spectacular and it was lovely seeing how the changing weather affected it. Dolgellau is very quaint with lots of eateries and places to have a drink (be it tea or a pint). It is a 10 minute walk into Dolgellau but it will take longer coming back as the house is up a steep hill. The house is in a good location to use as a base and explore this beautiful part of Wales, Barmouth with its sandy beach is a 10 minute drive away. Wherever we went though we loved coming back to the home comforts of Lleifior. Communication was great with Louise the owner- she even told us when the gardener was coming. I would highly recommend this house as a place to stay, an added advantage was that I was able to charge my EV up using solar energy. Also we would recommend George lll pub at Penmaenpool for a meal and a drink with a view.

    All thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Clean and comfortable property, spacious, stunning views. A great location for exploring the area. We enjoyed the trail from Dolgellau into Barmouth. Would definitely recommend this property to others. Thank you. X

  • "We had a fabulous week here!"

    Great location for exploring Wales. The cottage itself was immaculate and very comfortable. The view was just unreal and our family favourite along with the log burning fire. Only thing we struggled with was the driveway being very steep but we managed to park on the road each day. Would highly recommend :)

  • "We booked a 3 night stay in this property for 6 adults and 2 children under 10."

    3 families and the children all had separate rooms. Beautiful location with a fabulous view. 5 minutes into Dolgellau by car and no more than 10/15 minutes walking. There is however a fairly steep hill to walk up back from Dolgellau. We ate in the Royal Ship Hotel in Dolgellau - the food was fantastic. Plenty of coffee shops in the town centre. The house itself was extremely well appointed. Beautiful bedrooms with comfy beds. One of the bedrooms downstairs had an en suite. Very large kitchen, which had everything you need, large dining room and spacious lounge with huge smart tv and log burner. Easy access to the property the owner texted us a code to the key safe by the front door and there was also an additional set of keys. The owner Louise texted us the day before we arrived to wish us a very happy holiday and insisted we contact her should we have any problems. The property itself was very clean and spacious and all the bed linen and towels were provided. The fresh flowers and welcome basket together with a box of logs for the log burner was a nice touch. Thank you Louise and Tim we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

    Everything is on your doorstep - shops and great restaurants in town, cycling which ever way you like from the house, and the beach is just a short ride away. Look forward to returning soon,

    The level of cleanliness, the design, and the amenities within were perfect! As a group of cyclists we were spoiled with the location and the house! The garage was an amazing space to keep the bikes and there was an outdoor tap if any needed a clean. Louise was also really helpful when we had a query and got back to us super quickly. Would 100% return. Thanks for having us!

  • "Absolutely superb!"

    Although we didn't get to meet the owners (Louise and Tim), they did get in touch with us whilst we were there which was really nice. I'm a bit behind leaving this review as we've only just returned from another stay in Norway (disappointing). The house is superb with wonderful views of the surrounding area. House was spotless and extremely well equipped. Off road parking was a bonus as was the extremely polite young lad who came round to take the bins out. Fantastic base for the surrounding areas and we will be definitely staying here again. Thanks again Louise and Tim!

  • "We had a fantastic comfort stay in this wonderful house."

    So much that we requested and booked an extra night. As we didn't want to leave and explore the area more. There was everything possibly needed in the kitchen and logs left to enjoy the log burner. Thank you so much for such a fantastic stay wouldn't think twice to recommend this house to anyone.

    Brilliant location, very peaceful with the most stunning views and only 10 minutes walk from town. It’s been beautifully decorated - everything is brand new! We loved the comfy beds and quality bed linen and the kitchen has everything you need - even a slow cooker! I received a friendly message and email from the owner prior to our visit asking us to get in touch if there was anything we needed. This property is a credit to the owners and would highly recommend this holiday home.

Lleifior is an immaculately presented, detached house, in an elevated position offering stunning views of the Cader Idris mountain Range.

It is in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park, on the edge of the market town of Dolgellau.

Luxuriously appointed throughout, providing light and airy contemporary accommodation, this house is perfect for a large family or groups of friends to spend quality time together.

Climb the steps to access the property, then venture into the spacious sitting room, with plush sofas, a woodburning stove and Smart TV, a splendid spot to watch your favourite shows or movies with loved ones after a day of exploring the local area.

This wonderful house also benefits from a private balcony to enjoy time outside as well as inside the property. Allow the designated chef to whip up a tasty meal in the full-equipped kitchen and gather in the light and airy dining room to tuck in; or move mealtimes outside and enjoy the wonderful mountain views at the table on the balcony.

When the night rolls in, choose from one of four beautiful bedrooms to rest, and rejuvenate; the master bedroom even boasts an en-suite shower room, ideal for freshening up before dinner or getting ready for the day ahead.

The bedrooms offer new John Lewis beds and mattresses to add an element of luxury.

Bikes can be hired in the town at the start of the route.
