This is an ideal little house from which to visit all the great attractions in North and Mid Wales. Perfectly situated in walking distance of the centre of Dolgellau but lovely and quiet too. Very well equipped and great communication with the manager and owner.Mrs Sue Carey - 13th August 2018
A beautifully decorated and well equipped cottage, a real home from home. This property is a real little gem, really has the wow factor. The local area is perfect if you like walking and also very close to the beach for those hotter days and has beautiful golden sands.Mrs J Wood - 10th July 2017
The owners have gone out of their way to ensure that there is everything at the cottage that a guest could possibly want. Nothing left to chance. It was superb and so comfortable that we both fell at home straight away. An excellent place to holiday, relax and enjoy. Only concern was parking availability but that was soon overcome.Mrs Kay - 6th October 2016
Perfect location for the town centre and local attractions. Cottage itself is tastefully decorated and thoughtfully equipped with everything you could think of and more - a real home from home. Also lots of information about the property and leaflets about local attractions. The hosts were welcoming, helpful and offered recommendations for attractions and restaurants. All in all a fantastic place and would highly recommend.Ms Foden - 12th September 2016

Dan yr Allt enjoys a quiet, peaceful setting in the small historic town of Dolgellau in the southern part of the beautiful Snowdonia National Park in North Wales. It offers easy access to rivers, lakes, mountain walks and a dedicated cycle/walking path along the Mawddach Estuary, all the way to the coast. From the doorstep of your accommodation Dolgellau offers a range of scenic walks, interesting shops, pubs, cafes and excellent restaurants.
Several gift shops are located in the town square area or very close by, stocking a range of items and craft ware by renowned Welsh designers/artists. There is also a range of other shops including a couple of bakers, butcher, several café’s, hardware, clothing, hairdressers, 2 supermarkets a Post Office and a Tourist Information Centre.
Amongst the best places to eat in the area is Y Meirionnydd, just a 2 minute walk from the cottage. This contemporary restaurant specialises in delicious menus using local produce. Other recommended restaurants in town include Y Sospan (traditional menu with a good choice to suit most palates) and Dylanwad Da, a popular Bistro with a regularly changing menu and a wide selection of wines. Just 2 miles outside the town you also have Bwyty Mawddach with amazing views of Cader Idris and the Mawddach Estuary. This restaurant boasts an award winning Chef specialising in fresh seasonal local produce. Back to walking distance from your accommodation Dolgellau also has several pubs including The Unicorn with pub food, real ales and Sky TV.
There’s a great selection of attractions in the area. First of all, Dolgellau is set on the foothill of Cader Idris, the second most popular mountain in Wales for climbers and walkers. The Mawddach Trail (as seen on the BBC’s Railway Walks with Julia Bradbury) is another must and the estuary views and the Blue Flag beach of Barmouth at the other end certainly makes this walk / bike ride worth the effort.
Coed Y Brenin’s internationally renowned Mountain Bike Centre and Go Ape centre is also within a 10 minute drive. It offers beautiful scenic forest trails for walking and biking of all abilities and an interesting visitor centre with a very good café. If you’re looking for a unique experience, head towards Porthmadog for some Llama Trekking and Junior Quad biking.
