About the Owner

I live in a rural area of the Staffordshire Moorlands which boarders the Peak National Park with my partner and our two pet Cairn terriers. We both have demanding and challenging careers and try our best to spend as much time in Dolgellau to escape the stresses that work throws at us.

Lovely property in the centre of Dolgalleu.

  • 5 of 5

We love Dolgalleu, which is a charming town in the lee of Cader Idris. Great area for walking. The property is within easy walking distance of the village centre, which has a good range of facilities including some great cafes and pubs. The property is beautifully furnished and equipped. It is very quiet and peaceful. We will return!

Perfect holiday!

  • 5 of 5

The property was spotless when we got there and we were pleased to see that we were provided with everything we needed for our holiday such as walking sticks and thermoses which were incredibly useful since the main focus of the holiday was hiking. The cottage is a very short walk away from the village centre where one can buy all the necessary supplies. The village in which the cottage is situated is a quaint one. While it took us quite a lot of time to get there it was worth the journey as the views are spectacular. The owner provided a book with walks starting in the village which was a gem as we scrapped the hiking ideas we had planned and used the book and we weren't at all disappointed. I would highly recommend this cottage for a romantic getaway for couples and we will definitely be coming back in the future

I agree with you that Dolgellau is a great destination with everything you need right here on the doorstep but it still maintains the character and charm of a village. Thank you for being such the perfect guest and I hope you return in the future. Kind regards, Gary

Perfect cottage, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was fantastic much better then we thought very well looked after and decorated, had everything you needed, we were so pleased when we arrived and that feeling didn't go away. The location is so tucked away in the private court yard yet a 2 min walk into the town. Which had everything great pubs , butchers and the cake shop ........... All I will say is try the Carmel flapjack.

Their was a book of walks in the cottage we tried three they were great and the views were fantastic. We will deffently be coming back and recommending this cottage. Ps the bed is massive and very comfy.

5 stars . Jemma, Paul and Gibson

Oasis of calm

  • 5 of 5

We’ve just had a really relaxing two weeks in this well-appointed little house in the heart of Dolgellau. It’s perfect for a couple and has everything you’ll need for a great holiday, whatever the weather! Situated a couple of minutes’ stroll from all the shops, restaurants and pubs, it is though very quiet and private.

We’ve been holidaying in Dolgellau for many years and never tire of some of the most beautiful mountain and coastal scenery in the world. Southern Snowdonia is quieter than the busy North Wales coast and mountains but there’s so much to do, no matter how energetic you are, and if you want to go further afield it’s only a relatively short drive to some fascinating little towns such as Conwy and Macynlleth and climbing centres such as Beddgelert and Llanberis.

I hope you'll consider booking our cottage again in the future and I look forward to your contact. Many thanks Gary

From the Owner

We love to spend time in the Snowdonia National Park and find that Dolgellau provides us with the perfect central location to all our favourite places. Living In the Staffordshire Moorlands offers us challenging and diverse landscapes but the only thing missing is the sea and the amazing beaches of North Wales have always had a drawing magnetism for us.

Activity and Interests

Car: not necessary


There are so many beaches to choose from that you will be spoilt for choice; most also allow dogs to exercise on them throughout the year. The nearest beaches are at Fairbourne or Barmouth which will both take you just under 15 minutes to drive to.

From the Owner

One of the reasons for choosing Dolgellau as our second home was due to the fact that we have the convenience of the towns amenities to include several restuarants and bars. The cottage is a real hideaway retreat because it is tucked within a private courtyard and if you didn't now it was there you would probably walk on by and miss it. We feel that we get the best of both worlds here; peaceful and private yet with a minutes walk to the town centre... We love it here and hope to retire to Dolgellau when the time comes. If you would like to discuss your booking with me directly then you can request my mobile contact number by calling Owners Direct on the following number: 02088 271998.
