We had a lovely holiday here. Cottage was very cosy and spacious. Stunning views. Highly recommend for a quiet relaxing break in the Welsh mountains. Close to the beach and the market towns of Dolgellau and machynlleth.

“Excellent barn conversion with outstanding views”
Reviewed May 29, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Beautiful conversion which keeps the character of the original barn. Outstanding views over the mountains. We were looking to stay in Dolgellau and this property on paper fitted the bill except it is actually 10 miles outside in Mallwyd and the address itself doesn't even include Dolgelau which is rather misleading. However we were warmly welcomed and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
An excellent location for walking and exploring the mountains and parking right by the front door. The kitchen is well equipped with plenty of crockery etc for 6 people. Although the property is advertised for 6, I would suggest 4 is more practical as it advertises a sofa bed but it is rather uncomfortable to sit on let alone sleep on. We were also surprised that there were no bins in bedrooms or lounge and also there wasn't a bedside light in the twin room. On the plus though there was free reliable wifi which is a nice touch.

“Outstanding Accomodation and Scenic Location.”
Reviewed May 26, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

A very special place almost magical walking the land and visiting places of interest in the area. The cottage was well thought out and has everything you could need for a short or long stay. If we lived on this side of the world we would definitely spend more time here.

A lovely cottage, in stunning surroundings. A true home from home. Wish we could have stayed longer.

A wonderful place to stay in a beautiful location. The owners are on hand, helpful but not obtrusive. For those that have read about the drive it is easy and no different to some of the roads in the area.
We highly recommend driving the 'Mountain Roads' in Wales and this was the highlight of our trip.
Thank you for our most enjoyable stay.

“A cosy New Year getaway!”
Reviewed January 9, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

person found this review helpful

I stayed here for 3 nights over the New Year period with my boyfriend, his friend and his girlfriend. We were greeted by Gary and his wife when we arrived and given a guided tour of the cottage with explanations of everything we could possibly need to know (how to work the heating etc). The cottage was gorgeous, really cosy and the views out of every window were amazing.

My only "issue" with the cottage was that the sofa, nor the beds (I slept on the single bed) were overly comfortable! BUT you don't stay at a cottage like this to sit around on the sofa all day, so it wasn't a major issue!

The cottage was really warm throughout our stay and everything we could imagine was provided for us from frying pans to tea towels.

The surrounding area was lovely, so many places to explore! There are 6 detailed walks you can take detailed in the folder provided when you arrive, we really enjoyed going on a couple of these walks, the views are worth it at the end!

The town of Machynlleth was a 14 minute drive away and it is lovely, lots of quirky little shops and houses (and a huge supermarket incase you forget anything).
