Coed Stable is a beautiful barn conversion on the outskirts of Dolgellau. Sleeping two, it is set in a rural location with stunning views. Only a 5 minute drive outside of Dolgellau, Coed Stable offers that ‘get away from it all’ factor whilst being well situated to access the other, many beautiful parts of Snowdonia.
Southern Snowdonia is a very popular place for those who enjoy walking as it offers a stunning and dramatic landscape but without the crowds that Snowdon itself attracts. Dolgellau sits at the foot of Cader Idris and is a traditional market town with a good selection of cafes and restaurants to relax and recoup in after a day out in and around Snowdonia.
Coed Stable is part of a traditional stone barn, converted to a very high spec. The down stairs is an open plan kitchen, diner and sitting room. Slate floor tiles with underfloor heating give a modern feel to the room while the neutral colours of the sofas and soft furnishings bring in the warmth. The kitchen area with the cream coloured units and wooden countertop are all beautifully finished.
The downstairs is light and airy with french windows behind the dining area which open out into a small private courtyard area with climbing roses, teak furniture with cushions and parasol which will be a perfect place to relax on a summers evening.
Upstairs is a double room with an apex ceiling and bathroom. The bedroom is very light and airy and simply decorated in white and cream but still offering that cosy feeling. Next to the bedroom is a lovely, modern bathroom with shower over bath, WC and washbasin.

If you want to add a wild swim into the mix, on your way down, take the route via Llyn Cau. On a summers evening you can walk to nearby Crossfoxes Pub which is less than a mile away.
