With panoramic views towards Cader Idris and down the Mawddach estuary towards the beaches of Barmouth most guests will visit because of the location. But the cottage is pretty lovely too.
A flight of stone steps leads to a raised patio area complete with outdoor furniture. If the weather’s kind this is where you’ll be spending a lot of your time I’m sure. But the big glass gable end ensures that the view can still be enjoyed once you step inside.
An open plan living area includes two comfortable leather sofas facing onto a large flat screen tv. A pine dining table and chairs sit along one side of the room and then, to the rear, a fitted kitchen with electric oven, hob, microwave and fridge provides guests with plenty of space to prepare those family meals and picnics.
There are two bedrooms in the cottage. One double room and one twin room. The double room has a small but perfectly formed ensuite shower room with WC and washbasin. The twin room has the use of a similar bathroom accessed from the adjoining hall. The twin room has a separate exit out of the cottage if some guests want an early start without disturbing the others. The bedding is clean and tidy and there are plenty of good quality towels available.
Pets Yes (£25 supplement per dog)

Cot and High Chair Not Provided
Location is of course crucial when choosing your holiday cottage. As suggested, panoramic views towards Cader Idris and down the Mawddach estuary towards the beaches of Barmouth will make this cottage a firm favourite with a lot of our guests.
The relatively easy Panorama Walk nearby is perfect for that gentle afternoon stroll but walkers might also enjoy exploring Dinas Oleu above Barmouth which happens to be the first bit of land ever donated to the National Trust. The more adventurous could head towards Diffwys and the Rhinog Mountain range. All this right from your front door of course.
Another activity right on your doorstep is the Barmouth Slabs. A popular spot for climbers especially in the summer. With easy access and a selection of relatively easy routes with belay stakes, the site is great for anyone wanting to try the sport for the first time. A number of independent local activity providers will be more than happy to ‘show you the ropes’. The cottage also provides a great base for mountain bikers with many trails passing nearby and the Coed Y Brenin Mountain Biking Centre just a short drive away.
Barmouth beach is only a couple of miles down the hill but if you are planning a lazy afternoon of sunbathing, taking the car is probably recommended. Walking back up the hill to the cottage in sandy flip flops at the end of a hot day won’t go down well with the kids.
Day trips to the market town of Dolgellau and the castle town of Harlech should also be on your list. And the brave among you should consider booking some slots on one the adrenalin fuelled adventure activities that Snowdonia is fast becoming famous for. (We’ll send you an info pack when you book.)
