Reviews

A very comfortable cottage, well eguipped, clean, nice and helpful owners. The owners have done a splendid job in refurbishing/renovating the barn!
Check the official snowdonia site for walks. The panorama walk from Barmouth and the Minffordd walk of Cader idris (http://www.eryri-npa.gov.uk) are beautiful. The nearby Dyfi Woods offer nice short walks (http://www.naturalresources.wales/dyfiforest) Dollegau is a town with character.Carolien from Dordrecht, the Netherlands - 1st August 2017
Excellent accommodation, excellent surroundings, excellent welcome by the owners, 10/10. We had a lovely day at the Talyllyn Railway. Beautiful scenery, excellent customer service and wonderful lunch and afternoon tea put on for us on our Drive a Steam Train Experience. Wonderful day by all and good value for money.Family from Shropshire - 5th June 2017
Such a lovely place to stay in gorgeous surroundings. We were very privileged to be the first people to stay here and left very impressed. All the fittings and furnishings were of a superior quality and you will find everything you need for a quiet break away and a good nights sleep!David from West Sussex - 4th May 2017
