About Naomi

UK family

Naomi purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Naomi chose Gwynedd - Snowdonia

Mawddach Cottage has been much loved by members of our family for 2 generations. Since taking ownership from our parents in 2011 we have been renovating it in stages while trying to preserve the charm of the original miner's cottage. We are very proud of what has been achieved, from a new slate roof to a complete reworking of the layout upstairs. It is a very cosy and comfortable place for a holiday and we hope to keep this for the next generation of our family to enjoy.

What makes this cottage unique

Mawddach Cottage is well situated, within easy walking distance to the beach, Fairbourne or the mountains and only a short car ride away from the regional towns of Dolgellau, Towyn and Barmouth.

A cozy, but not tiny cottage in a great location

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely Feb half term break at the cottage, which has all you need (but could have been enhanced by having its own supplies of tomato and brown sauce!). Great location for us, minutes walk from the sea or the other way the mountains. Can't wait to return! Thanks for having us

Lovely cosy cottage.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was very cosy, especially with the wood burner blazing!. Lovely and clean. Very well equipped kitchen. Comfy beds. Great location, three minute walk to beach. We stayed here for Christmas, and the cottage had been beautifully decorated. On arrival it was lovely to have a cup of tea with the Bara birth and jam left for us. Owner very prompt and informative. We will definitely return.

Beautiful authentic North Wales cottage. Cosy and great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay in Mawddach COttage. Cosy and warm, comfortable beds and everything you needed. My 6 year old went around the first day saying how kind the owners were with the Bara Brith on arrival and the steam train tickets left that they had won in a raffle! Beautiful walk up to blue lake from the house and stunning beach for sunsets and kite flying. Also amazing Indian restaurant in Fairbourne itself. A great trip and beautiful cottage. We hope to return. Thank you!

Perfectly charming - perfect for our needs

  • 5 of 5

Cottage was as described, great use of space - and great bedrooms, especially the master. The 'welcome pack' of butter jam and bara brith was a great surprise, and the bara brith was to die for. Solid comfortable furniture through the downstairs meant a real relaxing stay. No dedicated car parking, but I was able to park off road only 50 yards away. Well recommended.

Cozy Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here in late September and loved it. The cottage is cozy and comfortable. When we arrived we were greeted by a housewarming gift of locally made bread, butter, and jam and a very clean home. The location is wonderful and the owners were very easy and pleasant to work with. An all around great experience. We definitely recommend and hope to return!
