A 5* Cottage, home from home
You couldn’t wish for a more beautiful cottage. This 2 bedroomed cottage sleeps 5, ideal with our daughter and 2 grandchildren with us. Absolutely beautifully renovated old stone cottage with all you could wish for. The beds were very comfortable and everything was immaculately clean. There were enough fluffy white towels for us all with a lovely family bathroom and a shower room/ loo downstairs. Just mind your head on some of the beams! The lounge has a stunning ingle nook fireplace with some interesting features. The kitchen was well equipped with fridge/freezer/microwave and a lovely welcome basket with goodies plus some eggs/milk. Situated in a stunning location, Cymer abbey ruins a few steps from the cottage and the river Afon Mawddach close by. Barmouth beach only 20 mins away was a great hit with the children and the Fairbourne railway was a winner.

Wonderfully comfortable and spacious accomodation
The accomodation was clean, spacious, and comfortable in a delightful location in the southern part of Snowdonia National Park. Our house had two spacious bedrooms, a spacious and comfortable lounge room and delightful country style kitchen. The welcome gift of Welsh Cakes and a bottle of red wine was much appreciated and enjoyed. The kitchen was well equiped and easy to cook our own meals in. A delightful location within an easy and invigorating walk to the local time-warp village. There are many walks to participate in as well as mountain bike riding. Oh, and we went blackberry picking every day of our stay! Thank you to the owners for such a delightful home away from home, here in Australia!

Lovely Cosy Cottage for Trekking Adventures Around Snowdonia
I really enjoyed my stay at the cottage. Very comfortable. The cottage is a stones throw from some lovely walks and a short drive from Snowden. Very peaceful.

Cottage with character in excellent location
Lovely old cottage, beautifully & sympathetically refurbished with all mod cons but retaining original character. Large rooms, very clean, a shower room/toilet downstairs & a bathroom/toilet upstairs, kitchen well fitted out with crockery, kettle etc along with some staples such as tea,coffee, sugar. Pretty decor in bedrooms ie cushions & throws & very soft towels provided. Plenty of parking right next to cottage. Very pretty countryside all around which is great for walks or driving. Very quiet location, only heard a few sheep baaing!! Once off the farm, it is easy to drive into town or to the coast etc. Very pretty town, easy to park.

Well equipped cottage in ideal location
Well equipped and spacious cottage in peaceful location. Warm and cosy. Comfortable bed. 2 bedrooms, bathroom plus downstairs shower room with toilet. Lovely walks from cottage and only a short drive to many more. Separate shed for drying wet clothes and boots, and room to store bikes. A great location to explore southern Snowdonia. Lovely welcome gifts of Welsh cakes, wine, fudge, milk and flowers. Owners friendly and quick to respond to emails when booking made. We would highly recommend.

Cozy and comfortable
Great stay at Hen Dy, the cottage was very cozy and comfortable with everything we could possible need for a great vacation. The location was ideal, right near the river with beautiful hills as a backdrop and a short walk from Dolgellau. Nearby Barmouth has a fantastic sandy beach and Snowdon is a little over an hours away in the car. The drive there is stunning and well worthwhile in itself. Highly recommended.

Back for a second visit - lovely cottage with superb walking nearby
Four of us stayed recently in Hen Dy as we wanted to walk Cadar Idris and the surrounding ridge. The cottage is absolutely lovely and a really comfortable, warm, well appointed place for four adults to stay. Its also excellent value and easy to book through the very helpful and accommodating owners. There is a good supermarket in Dolgellau for supplies but I'd suggest you make sure you book if you want to eat out on a Saturday. We didn't and everywhere was booked up - our fault. The walking is absolutely superb and we loved the Precipice Walk plus Coed y Brenin. We also made it up Cadar Idris is good weather with some snow on the ground so were treated to absolutely spectacular views. Highly recommended all round.

Ideal for a small family
Nice little cottage situated ideally for nature trials. The town center is not far off either. All electriclas and heating works fine. Enjoyed every bit of the stay.
