Reviews

Just perfect and I will certainly come back to this cottage next year.C Gregory - 1st November 2017
Really nice, lovely house, so we felt at home.
Walk to the top of Mount Snowdon, Island of Anglesey, Barmouth Beach. Town centre of DolgellauFriends from France - 9th August 2017
We had a great few days away as a group of friends on a cycling holiday, the town has great facilities and the house was lovely and clean.Friends from Nottingham - 22nd May 2017
Ty Nant is an excellent property which suited us very well. Spotlessly clean and has every thing you could possibly want. Easy walking distance to shops cafes. and bars. Excellent location for all outdoors activities and also easier walking on the Mawddach Trail.Gill from Swansea - 9th May 2017
Lovely family holiday in a quiet town. Very homely, warm and comfortable. Precipice walk is excellent - avoids gambling with the weather.Peter from Cornwall - 12th April 2017
I've stayed in many holiday houses in the area over the years; this particular property was one of the cleanest, best equipped, and comfortable, which meant we had a really relaxing holiday.
I'd recommend any of the walks in the Kittiwake guides (local walks around Dolgellau, Barmouth and the Mawwdach estuary), especially Torrent Walk and Precipice Walk. The views from the Cregennan Lakes are stunning. I recommend Roberts Coffee Shop for Welsh rarebit and cakes, and Indiana Cuisine at Fairbourne (booking essential).Friends from Woodbridge - 5th April 2017
