“Perfect location”
Reviewed 22 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Our group of 5 people stayed for 4 nights.
The cottage had everything we needed and was within walking distance of great shops and restaurants. Home away from home and will definitely recommend. Plenty of fabulous hikes on the doorstep. Will stay again ! Thanks to Liz for being so helpful and great service!

“Lovely cottage”
Reviewed 22 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We had a fantastic stay here in this lovely cottage. It has all the ingredients for a stay with the family. The location is perfect - very close to Snowdonia and there's a lovely little stream by the cottage. They also have a great pool table, darts board, and Netflix! Would recommend this cottage to anyone!

“Lovely Place”
Reviewed 20 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Booked this cottage based on what we had seen on Trip Advisor and was not disappointed with it. The cottage is based on some narrow winding roads in a lovely quiet part of Dolgellau, but within easy walk of the village centre. The interior of the cottage was lovely, it had clearly been renovated with lots of loving care, was clean tidy and had everything you would want for a cottage. Would highly recommend this for a stay.

“Quaint lovely 3 bedroom cottage by the stream...”
Reviewed 10 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

When one walked into the cottage seems like entering into another era another time zone.
One needs to stay there to experience the magic that comes out of it.
5 of us with a 3.5yr old and a 6 mth's old baby. The cottage is a gem . Each room has an attached bath. Two of which has long baths. There are 2 stairs one leading to 2 rooms, the other to the attic.
Ceilings are low, doors are small & low, which makes us wonder whether those days people are much smaller than now. Very well equipped kitchen, oven comes with 8 cyclinder rings. 2 ovens, 2 grills. Better than any ovens I have come across.
We did some cooking and enjoyed the whole cottage. There is the basement with a washer & dryer, further in the is also the pool room. An exit door leads to the garden. Once out of it you can have a great view of the lovely stream that runs by the cottage.
During Summer one can hold a lovely bbq in the upper garden.
Would love to visit this cottage again ....

So I'm sitting in the lounge on our last night at Llys Cadwen and not looking forward to leaving in the morning! The past couple days here in Dolgellau have been great not in the least because of this wonderful property. (Excellent sunny weather helped too!) Liz and Gavin have really put in a lot of thought into making this place as perfect as it is. Especially love the small touches throughout the cottage such as the fender guitar in the dining room and the old style edison bulbs used for lighting. Detailed information on the property and surrounds sent to us before our arrival really contributed to making our stay exceed expectations.

In our group are 5 adults and 2 kids (3.5 years and 6 months old). The cottage accommodates all of us comfortably, is clean and warm. Short walking distance from the main square where all the shops are. The fully equipped kitchen is excellent. If you're in town on a Thursday be sure to stop by the market in the Free Library for some local produce to whip up a great breakfast! My daughter loved the garden out back next to the stream. The pool table and board games in the basement are a great touch as well.

Dolgellau itself is a nice little village well placed to use as a base to explore the Snowdonia area. Plenty of good restaurants for a night out, although some of them are slightly on the pricier side.

If I had to nitpick: the wifi coverage didn't extend to the whole house and was mainly confined to the areas immediately next to the lounge (nothing much you can do about that with the thick stone walls); only street parking was available (although plenty of space can be found across the stream - its only a short walk); and the floor in the master-bedroom toilet can get pretty wet if you're taking a shower (no curtains).

Highly recommended!
