'The Tilman' in Barmouth unexpected and very tasty. Also well worth a visit Tapas at 'Tafan y Gader' in Dolgellau (same place that does Sunday lunch) a must visit!!! Plus 'Y Meirionnydd' superb food and a def must for that special night out!

    Excellent, well equipped cottage with great views in a nice peaceful location, we had a great time.
    Our top tips: Coed y Brenin bike routes (minortaur route great for families), Mawddach trail cycle ride to Barmouth and then get the ferry over to Fairbourne railway, NCN cycle route 8 to Corris was challenging but great. Lots of railways to keep enthusiasts happy. Cader Idris walks on a clear day, and all the shorter local walks when weather isn't so good.

    A wonderful cottage set in beautiful surroundings. The scenery and peace are breathtaking. Harlech Castle and beach were lovely, as was Bodnant Gardens a little further north. Well worth a day out there. There are so many places to walk locally or visit Barmouth with its long beach of golden sand.
