  • "Lovely little cottage situated in a typical North Wales village, surrounded by stunning scenery."

    Very clean and homely with pretty much everything needed for a comfortable getaway. Even the stormy weather didn't bother us, cozy and warm in our little haven. A credit to the owners

  • "We had a great stay in this lovely traditional cottage."

    It was clean and comfortable with some nice little extras which made it feel very homely. The shop is nearly next door and the pub a very short walk. The pub served good meals which were reasonably priced. It is based in a great area making it easy to explore North or Mid Wales.

  • "A great holiday property in a less touristy location."

    Well maintained and very comfortable. Great pub just a short distance up the road. The holiday cottage is well placed as a base for some epic walks, all within a short drive. Very pleased with the cottage and facilities as well as the location. Five stars!!

  • "Nice location in a quiet village."

    Nice cosy cottage. Local amenities are good. However I would be very of the local pub. Dreadful customer service. Got served chicken when a veg curry was ordered. We were also overcharged. Good facilities in the cottage. However the china and cutlery needed a wash prior to use do that could be better. There is a strong damp fishy smell in the property which hits you as soon as the door is opened. This is extremely off putting and due to this I will not recommend this place. The owners have been informed. Thoughtfully and considerably furnished with various facilities but lacked shower gel which is provided in most self catering establishments. The second bedroom has no window so is pretty claustrophobic. Overall a decent stay of 3 nights.

    Sorry to hear you were not totally happy with your stay. All cutlery and crockery has now been replaced. As for the damp smell, it transpires that the people who stayed prior to your stay had stored wet and muddy moutain bikes inside the property which is not allowed. This has now been cleaned and aired. Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage with everything the family needs for the stay."

    A gorgeous village with good amenities and close to some fabulous walks and hikes. Local pub has a decent menu for big and little people, with big portion sizes. Clear instructions included for everything in the house. Would definitely book again!

The property

Resting in the village of Trawsfynydd, in the heart of the Eryri (Snowdonia) National Park, is Bodalaw, an early 19th century, stone-built mid-terrace cottage.

Retaining much of its original character, including the stone inglenook fireplace and multi-fuel stove found in the sitting room, Bodalaw has a charming and homely atmosphere, while the rear patio garden is perfect for relaxing and enjoying the countryside and mountain views in the distance.

The home also has a well-equipped kitchen/diner to dine indoors on cooler days, also complete with a washing machine for convenience.

When sleep calls, a double bedroom and a single room are on offer, both serviced by a shower room.

Once you're ready to explore, the surrounding area is ideal for a quiet Trawsfynydd cottage break, or for lovers of the outdoors, there is excellent walking, golf and birdwatching available close by, and fishing on the Trawsfynydd Lake is very popular.

Spend time at one of the beautiful beaches nearby, including Porthmadog and Llandanwg Beach, or visit Portmeirion Italianate Village for a family-friendly day out, followed by a delicious bite to eat at the favoured Castell Deudraeth Brasserie.

At the end of the day, Bodalaw is a perfect place to return to and relax.
