Dolgellau also has many interesting shops, cafes and an award winning supermarket offering a wide range of Welsh produce.

Fantastic cottage in a great locationMrs Bethan Brown - 13th August 2018
We would definitely stay there again, good spot for touring around walesMrs Gail Loxton - 8th July 2018
Margaret was good. The Wi-Fi was good. Location was remote as we wanted but we walked to Dolgellau. Service from BoW was easy. Brilliant get away, thanks.Mr Tim Healy - 14th February 2018
A lovely cottage, really cosy and warm. Great to have the hot water on constant after our muddy runs and mountain biking. It was a great location for us. We had no problems getting a taxi home on the Saturday night - after a fantastic wine tasting! Great place to stay - and really helpful company. Would highly recommend.Dannie from North Ayrshire - 30th January 2018
High Spec and a Home from home.
Perfect host, close enough for help and turning up to say hello on arrival. Nothing any trouble. Lovely personal touches around cottage. Tapas in Barmouth too. 'The Tilman' in Barmouth unexpected and very tasty. Also well worth a visit Tapas at 'Tafan y Gader' in Dolgellau (same place that does Sunday lunch) a must visit!!! Plus 'Y Meirionnydd' superb food and a def must for that special night out!Ian - 3rd September 2017
Excellent, well equipped cottage with great views in a nice peaceful location, we had a great time.
Our top tips: Coed y Brenin bike routes (minortaur route great for families), Mawddach trail cycle ride to Barmouth and then get the ferry over to Fairbourne railway, NCN cycle route 8 to Corris was challenging but great. Lots of railways to keep enthusiasts happy. Cader Idris walks on a clear day, and all the shorter local walks when weather isn't so good.Beth from Co. Durham - 13th August 2017
Everything was perfect! Beautiful and very good equipped cottage in outstanding landscape.

Relaxing and enjoyable.
Recommends: Steam railways and walking in lovely area.Les from Newcastle - 2nd July 2017
A wonderful cottage set in beautiful surroundings. The scenery and peace are breathtaking. Harlech Castle and beach were lovely, as was Bodnant Gardens a little further north. Well worth a day out there. There are so many places to walk locally or visit Barmouth with its long beach of golden sand.Corinne from Coventry - 26th June 2017
