Beautiful, private cottage, very cosy and with all the facilities you would expect. Lovely welcome gift of milk and Welsh Cakes gratefully received after our drive! Surroundings very peaceful, easy access to Dolgellau, Llyn Tegid and Abermaw and elsewhere in the area. A variety of wildlife to be seen in the garden. Ideal for a family break and welcoming to dogs.
