The North Wales region

Southern Snowdonia is steeped in history from the tolls of Rebeccas Daughters to the magnificent coastal castles with the stories of rebellion .

Steam railways are abundant and are a wonderful way of exploring this magnificant country. With its beautiful safe sandy beaches, rugged mountains, coastal paths, cycle trails and all kinds of extreme sports within easy reach. Its the perfect holiday destination, whatever the weather; yes it sure can rain here, but thats whats keep it so beautiful.

No crowed beaches, let your dog run free.


Direct from Milk Wood Bach you can take some great walks, the famous Torrent Walk starts in the village. The Precipice Walk is a must, you can see down the estuary to Barmouth Brithdir is a small village, alas no shops now like many villages. A great pub is 2 miles away at Cross Foxes so not far to go for a pint.

Dolgellau, 3 miles away is an old fashioned Welsh market town, full of individual shops and people. It has banks, two small supermarkets and the best hardware shop in the country. Lots of good little cafes and restaurants so no need to cook.

The famous Mawddach Trail starts from here where you can walk or cycle to Barmouth in safety along the old railway track. Pub on the way so refreshments are available Bala 15 mins drive has a magnificent lake and White Water Rafting can be booked a few miles away.

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 wher 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.

The beaches near barmouth are never crowed, even in peak summer and further up the coast we even have a naturist beach if you are felling like an all over tan.

"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.

"amazing property with all you will need."

Truly amazing property with all you need for a good stay,only downside we could find was that the heating was a little dissapointing as there was no heat in the bathroom(towel rail did not work or would be inadequate) ,you could go out and buy logs and kindle for the log fire as you are only allowed to use a fair amount that is provided? A stay in the winter months would be for the stout hearted as there is no heating in the bedrooms.A little thought would put this on our list of must stays for north wales stays.

Thankyou for your reveiw, it is a truly amazing place. I think I need to clarify the heating situation though. Milk Wood Bach opened this summer . The first bookings were transfered from Dumbledore, which we had sold and guests were offered the upgraded accomadation or a refund,. As it was summer we did not put in bedroom or bathroom heating! We had lived at the property during the winter of 2010/11 when we had minus 19 degrees and were never cold so did not consider that heating would be needed till later in the year. In Septemeber, when the sauna was installed, bedroom and bathroom heating was installed to keep you all cosy. We provide all logs for our guests, they were restricted at Milk Wood Bach to begin with for gusets who had paid a lower rate for Dumbledore. We include towels/ bathrobes, sauna towels/ hot tub/ wifi/ sauna/ logs / heating/ honesty phone. Its a truly great place
