Mrs Aleksandra S,


This detached Dolgellau accommodation is set within its own grounds. With its own drive and enclosed garden it offers a very private setting and enjoys great mountain views.

Located above the the village of Llanelltyd, it is only 2 miles from the centre of Dolgellau – a lovely market town in southern Snowdonia. It is also just half a mile from Bwyty Mawddach, one of the highly recommended restaurants in the area, which is also a lovely setting for some relaxing drinks. Another great bonus is that your Dolgellau accommodation is just 8 miles from the Blue Flag sandy beach at Barmouth.

There are plenty of interesting shops, great cafes, pubs and restaurants in Dolgellau. It is also the town with the most listed buildings in Wales. For amazing cakes and free wifi, visit T.H.Roberts’ Parliament House, or eat out at Meirionydd and Dylanwad Da. George III at Penmaenpool is another recommended restaurant just 2 miles from your Dolgellau accommodation. For a quiet drink, Unicorn in town is a lovely setting.

Amongst the best attractions in the area you have the world renowned Coed Y Brenin Mountain Biking Centre and the Go Ape High Wire Course (4 miles). Also within 20 miles, at Blaenau Ffestiniog, is the largest underground trampoline in Europe (Bounce Below) and an exhilarating Zip Wire ride. For watersports, Bala (19 miles) is home to the largest natural lake in Wales and also the National White Water Rafting Centre.
