About Gary Stevenson

I live with my partner and two cairn terriers in a rural area of the Staffordshire Moorlands which boarders the Peak National Park and Derbyshire. We both have demanding and challenging careers and try our best to spend as much time in Dolgellau to escape the stresses and strains that work throws at us, we find Snowdonia is the perfect place to reflect, relax and re-charge ourselves.

Gary Stevenson purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Gary Stevenson chose Dolgellau

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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, individual and independent shops and a real sense of community. Our cottage is a real hideaway retreat as it is tucked away 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 have the best of both worlds here; peaceful and private yet with a few minutes walk to the town centre... We love it here and hope to retire to Dolgellau in the near future.

A very stylish, yet comfortable cottage

  • 5 of 5

Overall we had a fantastic week. The property is furnished and decorated to a very high standard. The kitchen is the best equipped we have ever seen and the other rooms were warm, welcoming and decorated to 'hotel standard'. Possibly the best cottage we've stayed in and we would be keen to visit again.

Tastefully furnished cottage near Dolgellau town centre

  • 5 of 5

Clean, nicely furnished, quiet, cosy cottage for 2 near the centre of Dolgellau. Kitchen small but well equipped (although some basic supplies - tea, coffee, washing-up cloths - would have been helpful). Good sized sitting room and bedroom; very good shower/bath (note shower is over bath).

Good directions / introductory instructions emailed in advance (some further local information / instructions in the cottage would have been useful).

Overall, very good quality and well located cottage, pleasantly quiet and enjoyable stay.

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully decorated old cottage in quiet part of the lovely town of Dolgellau. Spacious bedroom with extremely comfortable king size bed. Fab shower & WiFi. Fully equipped modern kitchen. Lovely owner. Well situated for great walks and trips to beach. No parking attached but we found a spot easily 200 m away. Very highly rated.

Nicely cosy cottage wonderful comfortable bed our weather wasn’t very good but the cottage was lovely and warm. I would have given five stars but the television needs an upgrade not all the free view channels available and the picture kept breaking up.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write such a positive review regarding your stay at Ivy Court Cottage. I am really pleased to hear that the accommodation met your needs and I thank you for letting me know that not all of the Freeview channels were showing on the TV, I have ordered a new 32’ smart view LED TV so this will hopefully resolve the issue. Kind regards, Gary
