As with the previous reviews, this accommodation and the hosts were great. From the quality of the accommodation, its cleanliness and the chocolate cake on arrival. A real home from home, we found nothing wanting when preparing diner, from bottle open to carving knife. We were a group of two couples and the location is ideal for many of the sites and places to visit in North Wales. For leisurely cycling we popped into town, (10 mins downhill walk), and hired bikes for a 9 miles cycle out to Barmouth on the flat Estuary trail. For diner we again walked down hill to town but you might want to think twice about the second helping of dessert before the up hill walk back.

Stayed at this house for a week with 2 friends on a fishing trip. Great start being welcomed with a greeting card and some lovely cakes ! The accommodation was just as described and spotlessly clean and tidy, all the equipment worked a treat and the beds were all very comfortable. One double bedroom has a good en-suite and the other two bedrooms can share the larger bathroom. We didn't enjoy the best of weather on our trip and we were soaked on all but one day...thankfully there was a good utility room downstairs which was entirely suitable for drying our gear ready for the next day. Always a good sign when my friends intend to go back with their wives !

Thank you for taking the time to share this lovely review, we are so pleased you and your friends enjoyed your stay at Llety'r Bugail. It is great to hear that you didn't let the weather get in the way of your good time, how handy to have a place to dry your gear too! We certainly hope you return (with the wives!) very soon.

We visited the cottage as two elderly couples and were very pleased with the spacious rooms. We also were very happy with the two bathrooms, one for each couple. The ladies were very excited about the well equiped kitchen and all the accessoires in it. They like to cook and bake all kind of stuff and they have done their very best. The town centre is a few minutes away by car, but you also can walk to the centre; it is about 15 - 20 minutes. The return from the town centre is a bit harder as you must walk up along a hill, but for those who like to walk it is very well to do, especially if you did have your diner in town and you had a few drinks or glases of wine accompanying your meal. If it is a bit sunny, the terrace invites you to sit down and enjoy the surroundings with a nice drink at hand and a very well view at Cader Idris. An excellent place for exploring the North-West area of Wales.

Llety'r Bugail is a fantastic property set right on the uplands above Dolgellau, with fabulous views over Cadair Idris and the mountain ranges. It was beautifully clean, well equipped and, more than anything else, dry! The North Welsh weather let us down for the first time ever, but since this was about our 40th trip, it is hardly indicative of what one can normally expect. The area was beautifully quiet, with few but very friendly neighbours, and there was enough wildlife to keep the most ardent of naturalists quiet for a goodly while. As a result of little or no light pollution, particularly late at night, the night skies were absolutely outstanding, and the provision of patio furniture enhanced the experience. There are plenty of shops nearby to assuage the hunger of all but the greediest of tourists, and the cottage is a great centre for exploring all of Gwynedd and beyond. We had a superb week, and greatly enjoyed what was provided. As an added bonus, the blackberry bushes were in full fruit, so the resultant pies/crumbles were a joy to behold, and something that the supermarket didn't supply. (Mind you, they did provide the custard!) All round, an excellent place to get away from the lunatic world we all live in, and recharge the addled brain.

Lovely Cottage on the edge of Dolgellau. Cottage well looked after and extremely well maintained - one of the best we've ever stayed in. All mod cons in a great setting with mountains right on the doorstep. Lots of places to visit locally and plently to do for families. Welcome tray on arrival had excellent cake!

Just spent a week at the property with two friends. From the moment we arrived we loved it and couldn't fault anything. It is a modern extremely spacious property and as three friends on a walking holiday it was great to have a bedroom each with plenty of space for all our gear. The two bathrooms, one being ensuite was also a big bonus. It has a lovely large kitchen diner with everything you could want to cater for yourself. The house was spotless clean and all the furnishing are in a good state of repair. Lovely to be greeted after a long journey with a freshly made Victoria Sponge cake, Welsh cakes, tea, milk, fresh flowers and a bottle of wine for later! The property has great views from the front balcony of the surrounding mountains and seems to catch the sun most of the day. The property is about half a mile from town so it is close enough to walk for most people but it is uphill on the way back, although this seemed worse in the car than when we actually walked it! The outdoor key safe which is a great idea as it meant we didn't have to all go out together or worry about who had the key as we knew the first person home would always be able to get in. As well as the property we stayed in there is a one bedroomed twin apartment on the lower ground floor with an interconnecting internal stairway, renting the two together would be ideal for a larger group of friends or multi generation family. Llety’r Bugail is one of the best holiday properties I have every stayed in and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

We rented both properties for a family and friends holiday. They were both very well appointed and extremely clean. The view from the balcony and the quiet location more than made up for the long uphill walk after eating out (actually I'm lying, because one of my sons and I drove and didn't drink. The internal stairway was unlocked for us, making it easy to move between properties. The outside area under the balcony was ideal for tinkering with bikes, even in rainy weather. Talking of which, the only criticism was the lack of a tumble drier.

Light and very spacious, well-appointed accommodation. Welcoming tray with home-made cake on arrival. We especially liked the pleasant balcony with table and seating accessed through the patio doors. There were only two of us, but the property is well-equipped for six.

The welcome upon arrival was fantastic. We had homemade cake, fresh cut flowers, wine and welsh cakes waiting for us when we stepped through the door. The accommodation was excellent a real 5 star stay. The whole place was very clean and thoughtfully furnished and the kitchen stocked everything to could ever need. A real home from home and a great base to explore the fantastic Snowdonia area.
