The cottage was in such a perfect spot - walks practically on the doorstep and so many places to visit within 20-30 minutes by car - Barmouth, Cader Idris, Machynlleth, loads of steam train rides, gorgeous beaches.....the list goes on! The owner let us check in early and brought round freshly-baked scones which were delicious! The cottage itself could do...

Although set in beautiful surroundings and with access to the owner's lovely gardens, I'm afraid I thought this cottage was due some improvement. It is quite shabby and some items need replacing, notably the broken toilet seat which had been mentioned by previous occupants in the visitor's book. The bathroom shelf, where I wanted to put my toiletries, was grubby....

We stayed here for a few days in early May and cannot fault the location! The owners extended a warm welcome then left us to explore the grounds and the many local attractions. This cottage and Plas Hen are away from the main house so ideal if you are noisy! The cottage soon warmed up when we switched on the...

About the neighborhood
The picturesque market towns of Dolgellau and Machynlleth, along with the bustling harbour town of Barmouth, offer plenty of civilisation - if any is needed! All have cafes, music, seafood restaurants, galleries and antiques. And you can always enjoy a night of special music at Ty Siamas in Dolgellau, the National Centre for Welsh Folk Music.

There are many fantastic walks within a few miles of the cottage. The Torrent Walk path runs right from the cottage grounds through a beautiful wooded gorge along the spectacular fall of the Clywedog River. The Creganon Lakes up in the foothills of Cadir Idris have views of the sea and Barmouth, while the famous Precipice and New Precipice Walks are both cliff-top walks with unrivaled views of Cadir Idris and the Mawddach Estuary.
