We stayed here with our family and friends for our 10th Wedding Anniversary this summer. We had such a great experience from the get go that I was already dreaming up future trips to Dolgellau so we could come back. The owners, Nigel and Madge were lovely and so helpful in giving us information, be it places to visit, where to eat, or about options for mountain hikes. The whole experience blew my expectations from when we booked. Having been my first time at a bed and breakfast type venue, it definitely raised the bar for the future. The best part was the location as it was perfect in proximity to anywhere we would want to go and still felt secluded from the hustle and bustle.
