About this location

The North Wales region

A Welsh wonderland under the towering peaks of the surrounding mountains where gold was once mined for Royal wedding rings. Steeped in folklore of dragons & giants and old stories of Rebecca's Daughters and the toll road taxes & Owain Glyndwr or check out the magnificent medieval coastal castles with the stories of rebellion where you can almost hear the battles still raging. Discover the Welsh history & culture at the many events around the county.

Famous for its choirs, stunning mountain ranges and beautiful valleys, this wonderful country has something for everyone. The ideal base to explore Snowdonia National Park, situated in North Wales, boasts breath taking mountain scenery, crystal clear lakes and cascading waterfalls. Climb Snowdon, which at 1085m is Wales's highest mountain, or travel to the summit in style on the charming Mountain Railway.

Nearby is Cadair Idris, Wales's second highest peak and great to climb, and attracts less visitors. Alternatively, why not sample the beautiful green valley of Llangollen by steam train or from a leisurely horse-drawn canal boat. You could also explore the beautiful coastline, safe sandy beaches and water sports of the Lleyn Peninsula, coastal paths, cycle trails and all kinds of extreme sports within easy reach. It's the perfect holiday destination, whatever the weather.

When the sun shines we have some of the best beaches, Barmouth is our nearest beach, approximately 25 minuet's drive, miles of sand and almost deserted, we even have a designated Naturist beach near Talybont.

To the north is historic Conwy, Victorian Llandudno or the Isle of Anglesey, the north coast is approximately an hour and a half away by car. To the south, there's the lovely Brecon Beacons National Park, a haven of rugged moorland, forests and mountains that's just perfect for nature lovers and walkers.

Finally, this area is well known for its many narrow gauge steam railways, a perfect way to explore this beautiful land. For steam train enthusiasts you could spend the holiday discovering the many routes with its quaint stations. So come and let us work our magic.

Brithdir

Brithdir

Brithdir is a small village; alas no shops now like many villages, but quite and unspoiled it's like travelling into the past, set on a hill side with view of Cadair Idris and the valley below.

Dolgellau

Dolgellau is an ancient market town with links going back to gold mining in the surrounding hills. It still has a Farmers Market every month where you can buy wonderful local produce and a genuine stock market weekly. If the weather stops your outdoor pursuits you can spend time browsing around the quaint local shops and enjoy a meal in one of the many good eateries in the town. Dolgellau has a good 9 hole golf course & Bala nearby has golf, an excellent swimming pool and sailing on the lake. For extreme sports, try white water rafting or rock climbing. The Cycle Path down the estuary to Barmouth, where you cycle over the famous Barmouth Bridge. Dolgellau sits on the south bank of the Wnion River at the foot of Cadair Idris, Cadair Idris in the south of the Snowdonia National Park in Gwynedd, West Wales. The area has long been known for its walks, with rocky crags, clear streams and cascading waterfalls. The rich wildlife includes red squirrels, pine-marten, otters and deer, as well as goshawks and goosander.

The Forest Park in Coed y Brenin is world renowned for its fantastic network of Mountain Bike Trails. There is a restaurant and cycle shop (sales, repair, and hire) on the site and information on the many forest trails is to be found at the Visitor Centre.

Town Centre

Walking around Dolgellau and seeing the monumental chimney stacks, weird shaped roofs, the thick granite walls and the higgledy-piggledy street layout you could be forgiven for believing that Dolgellau was designed by the Brothers Grimm of fairy tale renown. Ty Seren, the 208-year-old former woollen mill of great character in Meyrick Street is typical, with its attractive proportions, four floors squeezed into the space that would normally house three, and the corner of the building cut into a splay for good measure.

Attractions

Dolgellau has a great future as both a cultural centre and as a tourist centre especially with the ever growing popularity of activity holidays. Climbers and hill walkers take advantage of the town's proximity to Cadair Idris, mountain bike riders visit the town for the world-class mountain bike trails available in the Coed y Brenin Forest, and bird watchers and nature lovers can't help but appreciate the beauty of the Mawddach estuary and the wild but beautiful countryside. Horse riding, angling, and white water rafting are other popular sports for visitors to Dolgellau.

Walks, Cycle Trails and Other Activities

It has been said that there is "no better walk than from Barmouth through to Dolgellau other than from Dolgellau to Barmouth" the views of the Snowdonia mountains sweeping down to the Mawddach estuary are phenomenal. Penmaenpool and the Mawddach Estuary: Penmaenpool is some two miles from Dolgellau. The Mawddach estuary is a beautiful place for a walk or indeed a bike ride. The trail is some eight miles long leading to the railway bridge at Barmouth. For nature lovers and bird spotters there are two RSPB reserves in the Mawddach Valley, the Arthog and the Coed Garth Gell. Coed Garth Gell offers superb scenery and beautiful walks through oak woodland. In the spring, pied flycatchers, wood warblers, and redstarts can be seen and heard. Different types of warblers, reed buntings, and water rails can be seen at Arthog. Ravens and buzzards occur all year.

Precipice Walk: The Precipice walk is some three miles north east from Dolgellau. Although this is an upland walk it is on fairly level ground. Starting in woodland the walk soon opens up to splendid panoramas of Snowdonia, the Coed y Brenin Forest, the Rhinog mountains, the beautiful valley of the Afon Mawddach and finally Cadair Idris itself.

Torrent Walk: The Torrent Walk is some three miles east of Dolgellau running close to the River Clywedog. The ubiquitous ferns and mosses carpet the valley in a rich emerald green, massive boulders and tumbling waterfalls suggest the name of this walk. This is the nearest walk, 0.5 Mile from the lodges.

Coed y Brenin Forest Park: Nine miles north of Dolgellau, Coed y Brenin has long been known for its walks, with rocky crags and clear streams crashing over waterfalls. The rich wildlife includes red squirrels, pine-marten, otters and deer, as well as goshawks and goosander. Today the Forest Park is world renowned for its fantastic network of Mountain Bike Trails. There is a restaurant and cycle shop (sales, repair, and hire) on the site and information on the many forest trails is to be found at the Visitor Centre.

Barmouth

Barmouth is a must to visit, the old town meanders up steep narrow streets where you will find quaint cottages, best to walk as car space is limited. The harbour area has lots of bars and cafes where you can enjoy local seafood. Why not take a boat trip or use the ferry to visit Fairbourne across the estuary. A Bollywood film star runs a very good restaurant here.

History

Although Roman coins have been found nearby the town was probably established in the late 11th or early 12th century, with a church being built in the 12th century. The original church was demolished in the 18th century and replaced by the present church of St Mary's in 1716.

Many residents of Dolgellau abandoned the established church however and converted to the more austere Quakerism. However, with the persecution that followed a large number immigrated to Pennsylvania in 1686. There is a Quaker exhibition at the Tourist Information centre and a Quaker graveyard in the town.

By the end of the 18th century the economy of Dolgellau had grown alongside the expansion of the woollen industry, and the town became famous for the cottage industries of cloth making and tanning. The town grew in importance and became the county town of the old county of Merionethshire. But the wool trade and the tanning industry have declined over the years and today Dolgellau is known as a small market town that depends to a great extent on tourism.

Welsh history buffs might also like to know that Dolgellau was the location, in 1404, of Owain Glyndwr's last Welsh Parliament. Moreover, Dolgellau has another connection with Welsh Princes. Welsh gold has always been valued from Roman times to the present day and Dolgellau was the focus of the Welsh gold rush of the 19th Century.

"Perfect Honeymoon"

Milk Wood Lodge was the perfect place to spend our honeymoon! The garden is beautiful and the hot tub is a real luxury! The cabin in very homely and was spotless when we arrived. There is a log burner and a sauna which we loved! The log cabin village where the cabin is situated is nice and quiet. Would definitely recommend as a romantic getaway for couples!

"Fantastic relaxing weekend"

The lodge here is beautiful everything you could need. Hot tub in the garden is brilliant loved it sat out in the dark with just the lights on the hot tub. Sauna and shower steam room are great. So peaceful and yet so much to do in the surrounding areas. Perfect for a place to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Only thing I would mention is its not as isolated as I thought it would be and u do have neighbouring lodges either side. Don't let this put u off as it is beautiful. Hopefully we will be back in winter to get some use out of the log fire :)

"Peace and tranquility in wonderful surroundings and first class accommodation"

A wonderful weekend in a first class luxurious lodge. The facilities were second to none, the owner has thought of everything to make your stay a home from home experience. The lodge was immaculate and the garden and surroundings just beautiful. The only sound is the singing birds and trickle of water from the stream....paradise!! The hot tub is amazing....perfect place for a relaxing stay. We definitely recharged our batteries and will be back again very soon.
