“Great location for a family gathering”
Reviewed July 19, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Ideal get away for an extended family gathering.
Spacious, comfortable & cosy with good mix of rooms. Particularly liked the large lounge and large dining room even if they are in two buildings.

“Beautiful house & barn annexe in lovely rural location”
Reviewed June 8, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Well equipped house & annexe, very comfortable, all amenities & linen provided.
Ideal for large family group, plenty of very safe grounds for children to run around in - the children (4 - 7) loved it.
Lou greeted us on arrival. There were a couple of problems with the house early on which were sorted promptly.
Well placed to explore the area, not too far for the beach when the sun shines (which it did, a lot!) Can recommend a lovely spot by the river, ideal for paddling & impromptu bbq!

“Fantastic location & highly recommended”
Reviewed June 5, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Beautiful rural location about a 10 minute drive from Bala with plenty of views and no neighbours to annoy. Sat on a river with an abandoned railway line which you can walk along for access into the local village...pretty cool.

The houses are decorated to a lovely standard with plenty of facilities and room for the 15 of us that stayed.

Very clean. All bed linen and towels as well as cutlery and crockery were supplied making the stay very easy.

Lou came to greet us and was wonderful, then left us to get on with our stay.

Highly recommend this location and the team. Thanks for all your help Lou ;-)

“Ideal base for touring the area”
Reviewed May 25, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Dolgadfa was an ideal base for our (motor)biking weekend. Very comfortable and ideal for a large group(12) to chill out in after a day of brilliant sightseeing and touring. Not too far out of Bala to get the shopping in but in a very quiet location. I would be very happy to use Dolgadfa again and get out and about to see more of the beautiful North Wales countryside

Many thanks for your kind review, I am sorry to hear that you couldn't get WIFI in the barn annexe, sometimes we are in the hands of BT here and it can be intermittent, the downside of being so rural! But we would both like to say thai you for leaving Dolgadfa so exceptionally tidy, always nice when guests are so appreciative, we hope we can welcome you back in the future
