A lodge-style property, one of three recently converted from Club House at Dolgellau Golf Club, looking out onto the first three holes of the former golf course (further details on golfing arrangements below). Dolgellau is an historic market town within the Snowdonia National Park, with a range of shops, pubs and eating places. Albatross Lodge is single storey, with access via the decking and patio doors to the front, but also accessible by a side door near to the shared parking area. There are also footpaths from the property, though the surrounding hills and woodlands, with some wonderful mountain views.

Albatross Lodge sleeps six guests in three comfortable bedrooms. The open-plan living room is a light, bright space with pleasant outlook over the golf course. There is central heating and WiFi throughout the property.

Living Room/Kitchen: with two sofas, Freesat TV, table and six chairs, and a fully fitted kitchen with integrated appliances: electric single oven, ceramic hob, extractor fan, fridge with 3* freezer compartment and dishwasher.  

Bedroom 1: with super king size bed (zip and link - can be a twin if required; please request this at time of booking) and Freesat TV

En Suite Shower Room: shower cubicle, WC, basin, heated towel rail

Bedroom 2: with double bed

Bedroom 3: with twin beds

Family Bathroom: bath with shower over, WC and basin in fitted vanity unit

Outside: decking area overlooking the first tee, divided by low fencing and planters so that each lodge has its own space with picnic bench

No children under 8; the open grounds include river access, some steep drops, heavy machinery on the golf course, etc.

GOLF: The first three holes of the golf club have been retained by the owner and are still being maintained to a high standard.  There are two par 4’s and a par 3 with a practise ground which is 200 yards long.  Guests staying at the Lodges and Bryn-yr-Odyn Cottage have exclusive use of the facility during their stay, free of charge.  The owner is a PGA Professional and is available for lessons or guidance if you wish to play many of the fine courses in the area.  This should be arranged prior to arrival.

PETS: Dogs are welcome at the lodges, but must be kept under control on the golf course. Footpaths from the grounds provide plenty of scope for dog walking. Please clean up after your dogs, both inside and outside the property.

There are excellent local facilities in Dolgellau, a historic market town on the river Wnion, including a couple of small supermarkets, a good range of shops, pubs and cafés, and a local theatre. The famous mountain biking centre at Coed-y-Brenin is just a short drive away. Walk or cycle the Mawddach Trail along the river Mawddach towards its Estuary at Barmouth, 8 miles away, a popular seaside town with a long sandy beach, amusement arcades and activities for all ages. There are often spectacular sunsets to be seen beyond the iconic Barmouth Bridge. A trip along the opposite side of the Estuary takes you to Penmaenpool, with the renowned George III pub and a Wildlife Centre where you can see many fascinating birds and water creatures. The Penmaenpool toll bridge is a Grade II listed wooden bridge crossing the Estuary. A little further on and you reach Fairbourne, with its sand and shingle beach, and miniature Steam Railway. This stretch of coastline has many sandy beaches and stunning views over Cardigan Bay, whilst inland you can enjoy some stunning mountain scenery, lakes and forest walks.
