Brithdir, Dolgellau, Snowdonia National Park, North Wales, Wales
Featured in The Guardian’s “Britain’s Top 10 Cutest Log Cabins”, Milkwood is one of our Dog Friendly Snowdonia retreats with indoor Sauna, woodburner and WiFi, hidden in a clearing on the edge of the woods on the slopes of the Wnion Valley, within an exclusive small complex of private log cabin homes. Imagine a cosy log cabin sheltered by the woods, in an idyllic countryside setting, stargazing on a clear night, then relaxing inside by the log fire with a glass of wine (or hot cocoa!), and then retiring to a comfy bed to dream the night away. Romantic Breaks don’t get much better than this, and special family memories, too, after the cosy experience and adventure of Milkwood.

Whether you seek the perfect unwind, or have a birthday, anniversary or just need that special break, Milk Wood Lodges, the location and the wider area is ideal f...

We had a very comfortable and most enjoyable three night break at Milk Wood. The facilities and cabin were excellent and extremely clean throughout. The kitchen was so well equipped that it put most household kitchens to shame. There was a brand new cooker and washer, dryer and dishwasher. The whole cabin is spacious and the log burner was an...

I would to start on a positive as the rest of this is unfortunately going to be negative. The cabin is situated in the most beautiful location with stunning scenery. The facilities which are of use such as the hot tub and sauna are fantastic. However, on the hot tub rules and regulations state you can only use it at...

Management response:

Odd, Friday evening of your departure I received your email to the effect that you enjoyed your stay and will book again, and when would you get your security deposit back? Saturday I replied that I would require reassurance, since it is a Self-catering lodge, that you would follow the left-as-found policy of leaving the lodge tidy as found, and...

We have just returned from a 3 night break here and we absolutely loved it. The lodge was immaculately clean and tidy and was well equipped with everything we needed for our stay. The hot tub was very welcome after our Snowdon climb, and it was beautifully clean. We really loved it here and there really is nothing to criticise...

Management response:

Thank you for your positive review. Finally I have now found and fixed the problem with the shower.

About the neighbourhood

Brithdir is a small village; alas, no shops now like many villages, but quiet and unspoiled. It’s like travelling into the past, and is set on a hill side with view of Cadair Idris and the valley below. The foot entrance to the Torrent Walk, also located in Brithdir, is 0.5 Mile from the lodges.

Torrent Walk: One of Britain’s most spectacular riverside paths, The Torrent Walk, is within walking range of the cabin, running alongside the River Clywedog in Brithdir, and is some two-plus miles east of Dolgellau. The omnipresent ferns and mosses carpet the valley in rich emerald green. Massive boulders and tumbling waterfalls suggest the name of this walk. The walk hosts a detour to the ruins of an old iron ore furnace from the early 1700s, and the remains of an old wool mi...
