“Very pleasant stay”
Reviewed 31 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Within walking distance of the town of Dolgellau. Modern, compact, partial upside down accommodation, with the single living room downstairs and kitchen upstairs with x3 bedrooms, all with modern furnishings. The spiral staircase from the living room to the upstairs could be an issue for the infirm although my dad who's has early Parkinson's managed it. Roland is an attentive host, which is also demonstrated with his attention to detail throughout the cottage. The cottage has a lovely setting on the banks of a river with a mature garden and trees. The garden runs down to the river with a BBQ and benches. Roland has a modest bird feeding station attracting quite a variety of birds which is slowly adding to his garden list. This cottage had all the usual amenities one would expect and need. Really enjoyed our stay.

“Perfect peace”
Reviewed 29 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This gem of a cottage was perfect. Set in a lovely garden with river views. Every facility is provided and the house is really comfortable. The furnishings are top quality and the beds so comfortable I haven't slept that well in months.
The house is just a few minutes' walk from the pretty town of Dolgellau, with an excellent range of places to eat and good sized supermarkets for everyday supplies. The house is really easy to reach and we explored all over North East Wales. The owner is very welcoming and helpful and made our visit really enjoyable. He has great ideas of things to do.
If you filled all the beds then sitting down to a meal together would be a bit cosy and the spiral staircase might be an issue for some but we (including my mum in her 70s) had a great time and were really comfortable. We would definitely stay here again.

“Fantastic and beautiful cottage and idyllic area”
Reviewed 14 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Lovely cottage with a stunning view on the river and the beautiful gardens. The cottage is conveniently located on the outskirt of Dolgellau just a 5 min walk from shops and the centre which is handy. The property has been tastefully furnished and equipped to ensure a comfortable and enjoyable stay for the guests. Roland takes pride in keeping and maintaining his property to a high standard and pays particular attention to details (guest’s handbook, guides on local area, tea and coffee….and a bottle of wine).
Roland is always happy to answer questions on the area or recommend on good local coffee shops or restaurants. He kindly let me use his kayak and spared time to give me a private lesson.
I spent a wonderful week at the Felin Ship and would definitely return.

“Excellent, owner has equipped to a high standard and is very friendly and helpful.”
Reviewed 2 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Cottage is next door to owners home and benefits from the care and attention to detail he has taken to make it a clean and comfortable place to make your home for a week (or more). We felt very much at home here, the lovely location beside the river makes it a place to spend some quiet time not just a place to sleep between days out.

“Private and peaceful”
Reviewed 12 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Lovely cottage, with the most fab view. Lovely to look out in the morning to the tranquil river and quite beautiful garden, which the owner obviously works hard to ensure it stays that way. The cottage is very clean and beds are very comfortable. Well equipped and wonderful fluffy towels. This is a superb location, which we were able to access all the sights very easily and without having to travel for miles. Owner helpful and able to answer any questions.

“Beautiful and friendly!”
Reviewed 11 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We were honoured to be the first guests at Felin Ship, it was everything we had imagined and so much more!
The cottage is set in a beautiful gardens next to the river and only a short drive to lots of exciting days out. There are beautiful walks close by offering breath taking views.
The owner is extremely friendly and helpful, offering very useful advice whilst giving us complete privacy throughout our stay.
There is everything needed in the cottage which has been decorated and finished to a very high standard! The towels and bedding were lush!
We would highly recommend Felin Ship to anyone looking for a high quality, home from home cottage!
We wish Roland every success for the future and will be returning!
Thank you!
