I hesitate to write this review, but our stay was a mixed bag.
The upstairs of this lodging was really great: great beds, great linens, great rooms and baths, and quiet, so sleeping was good. The owners were very nice.
However, a few things are problematic: There is no internet. That fact should be stated in the description! (not just "not checked" in the amenities) We didn't know that until we arrived, and we need it. You can get it in the driveway....
Also, they expect you to clean the unit before you check out! We always leave places very clean, but to strip the beds and do housekeeping-level get-out-the-cleansers- cleaning is, we thought, out of line and very unusual.
We also had a lot of trouble finding the house and finding the paths around its property. some signs would help a lot.
We only stayed two nights of our three night minimum.
Situated in a quiet location surrounded by woodland and close to the Mawddach Trail makes this an ideal base for both walking and relaxation. A warm reception awaited us on our arrival - glowing lights and a burning log fire. Sandra and Rob, our hosts, were very welcoming making sure we were comfortable and providing us with local information. We had a wonderful time over the New Year period and would definitely recommend this cottage.
Stayed in this cottage in July for 4 days and so enjoyed it and the surrounding area that we immediately booked it for 10 days in September.
Not so much a cottage as the small wing of Abergwynant Hall this property is very comfortable and incredibly well equipped and maintained. What a joy to stay somewhere where everything works! Sandra and Rob are wonderfully welcoming and helpful -where else do you get the woodburner lit for your arrival and a bottle of Red and two glasses at the ready?
Dolgellau is treasure, shops as they used to be, friendly eateries and easy parking.
Any downside? Well not really, holidays like this should be an escape form the modern world, but a bit of internet access really does add to the enjoyment and help planning the day. Still very highly recommended
