Friendly service when booking the property, the property itself was lovely beautiful surroundings, very quiet and peaceful and close to the beach and great walks on your doorstep.Mr Kevin Birch - 28th May 2018
Lle a tŷ arbennig. Lle ardderchog a pherchnogion croesawgar. Gwasanaeth rhagorol - diolch. / Great property in a great location, welcoming owners. Excellent service - thank you.John from Clwyd - 11th March 2018
A beautiful location and a wonderful property, it was absolutely beautiful and we truly had a wonderful time. Bedrooms were fantastic. Brilliant service, will be using you again and recommending you to family and friends. Rebecca from West Midlands - 22nd February 2018
Second time staying there and we absolutely loved it.Michelle from Leigh - 1st January 2018
Superb location, peace and quiet with walks from the door. Great hosts. Recommends: climb Bird Rock.Trevor from Cheshire - 5th November 2017
Very comfortable, peaceful and outstanding location.
Tip: Be prepared for bad weather and enjoy the good weather, if you are equipped for all conditions you are sure to have a great time.Adrian from Chelmsford - 29th June 2017
Visited to be secluded and close to Cadair Idris. Very peaceful and ideal for any sort of getaway.
If you like a curry, the Lemon Tree restaurant/takeaway in Dolgellau is very nice.
Walking up Cadair Idris from Ty Nant is quite easy, with a GPS/map anyone in suitable clothing can make it.Alistair from Colchester - 6th February 2017
Lovely cosy cottage, we all felt at home there and had everything we needed. Beds were comfortable and it was clean throughout. Would stay there again in a heartbeat.
Tips: From what we could tell, the closest shop was 25 minutes away so bring plenty of supplies. It's a bit remote but that was what we were after. There's a fair few good walks to go on in the area to admire the superb views and scenery. There's also an easy 2 mile round walk to a 13th Century ruined castle (Castell y Bere).Friends from Manchester - 24th November 2016
I always find you extremely efficient!
We love the location - beautiful scenery; we always feel comfortable there; ideal for slightly hemiplegic seven-year-old grandson; son in law loves the fishing. We love our holidays there.
Recommendations: The beaches at Fairbourne and Barmouth are to die for. The café on the corner of the beach road in Fairbourne is very good. Nice little steam railways close by. Dolgoch Falls.Guests from Wolverhampton - 24th October 2016
Really loved it all apart from the rain but that did not stop us enjoying ourselves.
Recommendations: Alternative Technology Centre. The Railway Inn - lovely food. The little pub in Corris - beautiful Steaks. Ynyslas Beach, Borth - beautiful.Family from Berkshire - 2nd July 2016

Local Area

Maes Mihangel holiday cottage, Snowdonia is situated in the Dysynni Valley - an area of outstanding beauty near Tywyn (9 miles) and the stunning beach town of Aberdyfi (13 miles) in North Wales. Set at the foot of Cader Idris in southern region of the National Park, it is 2 miles from the village of Abergynolwyn which offers a good traditional pub and great little restaurant.

Popular activities in the South Snowdonia area include Hill Walking, Climbing, Mountain biking, Water Sports, Pony Trekking and Fishing.

There are many attractions for a family friendly holiday including the Centre for Alternative Technology, the Corris Craft Centre, King Arthur's Labyrinth and a number of steam and miniature railways, including the Talyllyn railway just two miles away.

For many the jewel of the valley is Talyllyn lake. Whatever your ability and level of fitness you'll discover miles of quiet and rewarding walks wherever you go. Paths wind up beside the famous Dolgoch Falls or take a visit to Castell y Bere (castle) built by Llewelyn Fawr around 1221 for a breathtaking view of the entire length of the valley. This is a land full of beauty, history and legend – the perfect combination for an inspiring holiday.
