Idris Bach is laid out over three floors. It is a roomy, one-bedroom cottage for two people. All the rooms are bright and airy and there is central heating throughout, so it’s lovely and cosy all year round.

Idris (meaning 'fiery lord') was the name of the little dragon in the enchanting 1980s cartoon, 'Ivor The Engine', set in Snowdonia. It is also the name of a stunning mountain near Dolgellau (Cader Idris). We decided to name our cottage (and our dragon) Idris Bach ('Little Idris') in honour of that little dragon. 'The Complete Ivor The Engine' DVD is provided in the cottage for you to discover/reminisce during your stay.
