Cosy cottage. Very relaxing. Gorgeous views. Friendly hosts. Brilliant walks within a few miles of the cottage.Family from Cambridge - 9th April 2017
It was a lovely cottage with a warm welcome from the owner. We were only there 2 nights but visited Bounce Below, Barmouth & the Snowdon railway in Llanberis.Family from South Yorkshire - 20th March 2017
We had a lovely welcome from Gwennan on our arrival, the cottage was well equipped, homely and fitted what we required perfectly! We thoroughly enjoyed our visits to the Zip World attractions and spent our Saturday climbing Snowdon. The town of Dolgellau is only five minutes away and is quite quaint as was the larger town of Machynlleth.Jenna from Llanelli - 13th March 2017
