Beautiful Property with a high standard of comfort and cleanliness. Property is larger than it looks on the website and easily hosts 6 adults (even with 1 toilet) Property is close to local bars and restaurants and lots of walks close by. Would book again at similar price.

Mr G,

Great property in a good location.

Mrs B,

We were really pleased with this property. The location is great - on the quieter outskirts of town, but a five minute walk in. The property itself is of a very high standard - beautifully decorated and well equipped. Good value for money that exceeded our expectations.

Mr H,

Fantastic property in excellent location, couldn’t fault a thing!

Mr B,

Drws y Nant is a lovely place to stay in Dolgellau. Very well situated, spacious and comfortable. The standard of cleanliness was exceptional and felt immediately comfortable as soon as arriving. We would certainly recommend.

Mrs H,


Enjoy being within walking distance to everything you need at this holiday cottage in Dolgellau. Within walking distance to the town centre and all its amenities, it is also located at the bottom of the lane that leads to mount Cader Idris. In addition to having a mountain walk from the doorstep, Dolgellau is also the starting point of the Mawddach Trail (walking and cycle route to Barmouth on the coast). Coed y Brenin's world renowned Mountain Biking Centre is also within 7.5 miles and there are 2 glorious beaches within 9 miles.

There are a range of shops within a 2 minute walk and you also have two supermarkets: Coop (which is also within walking distance) and Eurospar. Amongst the recommended restaurants close to your holiday cottage in Dolgellau, Tafarn y Gader Tapas Bar, Meirionydd and Dylanwad Da are all located in the town itself whilst Bwty Mawddach is exactly 2 miles. Good bars in town include Torrent Walk and Dylanwad Wine Bar.

The pretty, charismatic town of Dolgellau also has more than 200 listed buildings – more than any other town in Wales. Some of the popular attractions in the area includes Big Bounce (the largest underground trampoline in Europe) and the Zip Wire ride in Blaenau Ffestiniog. There is also a Go Ape High Wire course just 7.5 miles away and a National White Water Rafting Centre near Bala. For calmer days out, visit the beaches, Harlech Castle’s World Heritage site or ride along the Talyllyn narrow gauge railway.
