Lovely and very clean and homely, with a great kitchen and utility room and super shower room, very comfortable and great facilities. The cottage is close to lovely places to eat, walks and cycling.

Ty Nant is an excellent property which suited us very well. Spotlessly clean and has every thing you could possibly want. Easy walking distance to shops cafes. and bars. Excellent location for all outdoors activities and also easier walking on the Mawddach Trail.Gill from Swansea - 9th May 2017
Lovely family holiday in a quiet town. Very homely, warm and comfortable. Precipice walk is excellent - avoids gambling with the weather.Peter from Cornwall - 12th April 2017
I've stayed in many holiday houses in the area over the years; this particular property was one of the cleanest, best equipped, and comfortable, which meant we had a really relaxing holiday.
I'd recommend any of the walks in the Kittiwake guides (local walks around Dolgellau, Barmouth and the Mawwdach estuary), especially Torrent Walk and Precipice Walk. The views from the Cregennan Lakes are stunning. I recommend Roberts Coffee Shop for Welsh rarebit and cakes, and Indiana Cuisine at Fairbourne (booking essential).Friends from Woodbridge - 5th April 2017
