Oswald's Cottage is a delightful end-terraced cottage, extended and renovated to provide a stylish holiday property in the village of Dinas Mawddwy, surrounded by the lovely scenery on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park; an ideal location for touring south Snowdonia mountains, lakes and coastline.
The cottage has a sitting room with open fire, original fitted cupboards and floorboards, sofa, armchair and tub chair. (The sofa is a sofabed for alternative sleeping arrangements, but the open fire cannot be used if the sofabed is required.) There is Freesat TV, DVD player, WiFi and Wii. A separate dining room has similar original cupboards and slate flooring, woodburning stove, dining table and six chairs. The spacious kitchen also has original slate flooring, and a breakfast table and four chairs by the picture window, which gives lots of natural light. The fitted kitchen is very well equipped and includes electric oven and hob, microwave, washing machine, integrated dishwasher and integrated tall fridge with small 3* freezer compartment. To the first floor is a family bathroom with WC, basin, bath with hand shower attachment and a separate large shower cubicle with dual shower heads. There are two comfortable double bedrooms, one with original oak floorboards and cast iron fireplace (non-functional). The Master double bedroom also includes a pull-out single trundle bed, suitable for a small child, but note that space in the room is extremely limited if this is used (guests to bring own bedding and bed linen if this bed is required).
To the rear of the property is an outhouse providing storage for bikes etc, and a woodstore - logs are provided for the woodburner and open fire. To the side of the property is a steeply sloping, rough natural garden, which extends round to the back, above the roof of the outhouse, so young children and pets will need to be supervised. Parking is on street, usually possible directly to the front.
Dinas Mawddwy is a popular village location, with a pub, two hotels (bar and restaurant), Meirion Mill visitor centre with cafe and a small garden centre all within walking distance. The historic Brigands Inn pub at Mallwyd is just a mile away, with a petrol station and small convenience store just beyond. There is some excellent walking in this area, with stunning scenery on the route over the pass to Dolgellau, 10 miles to the north west, as well as picturesque riverside walks along the Dyfi valley, with the historic market town of Machynlleth 13 miles to the south west. The south Snowdonia coastline includes some lovely beaches and seaside towns, including Barmouth, Tywyn and Aberdyfi.

Perfect location for everything we wanted to do. The cottage is absolutely lovely tooMr D Thomas - 6th June 2018
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the cottage, it was fabulous. The kitchen was very well equiped, the fireplaces just wonderful, the bathroom very large and modern, bedrooms were a good size and beds were very comfortable. Thank you! Ms Claire James - 4th April 2018
Such a gorgeous cottage. Perfect for two couples and a dog. Lots of space, log fires were amazing and great walking advice. The perfect retreat from a rather wet and windy New Year trip.Allie Wick - 2nd January 2018
Lovely, well equipped cottage perfect for exploring the surrounding area.Lucinda Burghes - 28th October 2017
