Previous Customer,

We had a wonderful stay and loved the house and area.

Katie from A,

We really enjoyed our stay, it is a lovely cottage and the owner is a lovely lady. Peaceful dog friendly cottage in beautiful surroundings and lovely mountain views, close to beautiful walks and beaches. We have booked with Best of Wales 3 times and each time the service from the team has been excellent, we will definitely book again.

Julie from S,

The cottage was exactly what we wanted and the owners were very hospitable. We will certainly be back!

Miss Louise T,

This is our second visit to this property. Cae Merllen is in a lovely location with mountain views, close to lovely walks and beaches. Big choice of dog friendly holiday cottages on the Best of Wales website, easy to use website and email directions to cottage location with ideas of places to visit, even common phrases to use in Welsh. Will definitely use Best of Wales cottages again.

Previous Customer,

This cottage is in such a beautiful location, we're going to have to come back! My partner and I took our 2 labs on a walking holiday, based in this area. The cottage itself was lovely, and suited our needs perfectly. The location is key, with the closest walk, the Torrent Walk, being literally a few hundred metres away. Also go for the Precipice Walk and try to find the Blue Lake. Or you go for a flat walk to Barmouth, from Dolgellau. This cottage ticked all our boxes, and meant I had a really relaxed and enjoyable week away, and so did my partner and the dogs. Thanks.

Phil from U,

A lovely dog friendly cottage attached to a farm, perfect for a relaxing getaway with lots of lovely walks nearby and a beautiful beach within 12 miles. Surrounded by beautiful scenery whatever the weather may bring. The cottage was so quiet and peaceful, with a lovely cosy living area, and well equipped kitchen, perfect for our needs.
