The gardens surround these private cottages which are in a wonderful and safe place for children to play and explore.

This traditional country cottage offers a relaxing setting, with wonderful views from the garden over rolling farmland, this cottage is the perfect retreat.One pet welcome at an extra charge. The Grove is part of a group of five cottages that have complete privacy from each other and surround by a five acre garden.

Quiet and off the beaten track. Nearer to Machynlleth than Dolgellau. Basic facilities. Washing machine facilities were not explicitly advertised before booking. Facilities are at a cost and not located in the cottage. Heating not particularly adequate. Not enough instructions/user guides, with minimal guidance on handover of keys.

We are as we speak redecorating some of the cottages and...
