While traveling through Dolgellau, Wales on September 27, 2013, we relied on the local tourist information agent to book us into a bed and breakfast farmhouse. We certainly got lucky by the booking at Tyddyn Mawr Farmhouse.
The location was at Cader Idris, a beautiful mountain area with rolling hills and crystal clear lakes. Our floor room had a spacious double bed and our patio overlooked the hills and gardens. Leaving our French double doors open, we felt like the outdoors was within arms reach.
Olwen Evans, was the most friendly and helpful hostess that we had during our whole 3 weeks of travel through England and Wales. She greeted us with a tour of our facilities and gave us suggestions as to where to eat dinner. She also told us about some lovely hikes in the area and sites nearby that were used for film locations. Her information was useful and helpful as we really hadn't planned on staying in this area, so we had little idea about what to do during our stay. The tub was large enough to fit two and an added romantic treat.
The breakfast Olwen Evans served was tasty, plentiful and homemade. She made the preserves/jam and muesli. We were served with enough food to feed us for the entire day. Her meal was better than the castle hotels we stayed in during our trip to Wales. She had a way of making us feel so welcome that we really wished that we could have stayed longer to enjoy the area and her hospitality. This location is truly beautiful and should be included on any visit to this area of Wales.
