  • "Maes Coch is a beautiful cottage based in a truly stunning location."

    For walkers, it offers superb hiking opportunities right on your doorstep, and it also provides an excellent base for exploring the Snowdonia Mountains and Coast. For those who simply want some relaxing days/evenings in a very cosy, exquisitely furnished and clean cottage, it is also perfect. It truly is worth visiting just for the tranquillity, serenity in a truly pastoral setting of natural beauty. A stay is definitely nourishing for soul and mind, and offers an escape from urban life. Dolgellau, is only a short walk or drive away for easy access to all amenities and there are some are some superb pubs around! The owners are extremely kind, accommodating, and lovely people. Katie has two of the cutest dogs you could ever meet! I cannot recommend a visit highly enough, and look forward to staying again in the future. Patrick

  • "The comfortable cottage at Maes Coch was perfect for us, and it's in a wonderful location with numerous walks in the surrounding countryside straight from the front door."

    There are many other excellent walks and cycling opportunities not far away by car. Rhys was very helpful, giving us useful information about the area and providing a secure lock-up for our bicycles. We will definitely return at a later date.

  • "Really beautiful small cottage which had been renovated carefully with comfort and ease of use in mind."

    All on one level. King size bed, lovely couch, central heating simple to use. Spotlessly clean. Situated high in the mountains with wonderful views, it is a gem. Forgot all about the woes of the world. No signal so couldn't use smart phone. This added to our holiday!!! Thanks to Rhys and Kate for helping us feel at home. Hope to visit again.

  • "The cottage was very cosy, a huge comfy sofa, brilliant coffee machine and able to sit with said coffee looking out at Cadair Idris."

    The slow cooker is also a great addition for having something warm to return to after a day in the hills. The walking from the doorstep is excellent and there are lots of other suggestions for local walking near by.

  • "Small but perfectly adequate for two, Maes Coch Cottage is in an idyllic location for anyone looking to be in the heart of hill farming countryside."

    The views are spectacular and there are excellent walks and cycle rides from the front door. The cottage is attached to the farmhouse - so don't expect complete isolation - but our hosts were extremely friendly and helpful. If you want an internet signal you'll have to stand outside and wave your phone around a bit, but there is some benefit in being able to tell the office you really will be offline for the duration. Dolgellau is only a few - admittedly steep - miles away where there is a large Co-op for food shopping, and plenty of options for those who rather let someone else do the cooking.

  • "A delightful cottage that gives you both isolation because of its location but also the proximity of being able to get to any location in this part of Wales - Barmouth, Porthmadog Tywyn Harlech etc within just over 30 mins drive."

    The cottage contains everything you need and was clean throughout. Sandra provided us with some of her home makes cakes that were delicious. Plenty of walks to take in. Particularly liked the Mawddach Trail. It’s 9 miles from Dolgellau to Barmouth. Only walked the one way and caught the bus back. You can’t get a mobile signal inside the cottage and this was a really great plus point because instead of spending time on your iPad you can chat away.

  • "Great location."

    Nice cottage. Only 1 set of towels en bedsheets for 2 weeks. Cleanliness could be better.

  • "Brilliant little cottage at the bottom of the mountain."

    It was warm inside and the cottage had all the facilities needed for a very pleasant get away over New Years. There is little or no phone signal in the cottage (but good signal outside), but it did not bother us, as we were there to simply "switch off" from everything. But bear that in mind, if you are hoping to "work from home". The owners were very helpful and have welcomed us with some delicious flapjacks, that we munched away whilst hiking in the area :) Thank you so much creating a home away from home and for a wonderful stay! we hope to be back in the summer! Kind regards M & M

    Sandra is wonderfully welcoming, personable and informative. A big thanks Sandra for the cottage pies (see Facebook page), the fudge brownies and milk in the jug. A big SO SORRY for our car alarm going off at 0400 in the morning! And a BIG recommendation from us to anyone considering a stay at Maes Coch. Best wishes Angie & Woody.
