About this location

The North Wales region

Situated on the cusp of Snowdonia National Park, just 20 minutes from the beautiful Blue Flag beaches of Cardigan Bay, our hand-picked 4* and 5* holiday cottages in and around Dolgellau are the perfect base from which to explore Wales. Located at the foot the mountain Cader Idris, you'll find three routes to the summit of this breath-taking peak - one from Dolgellau itself.

The market town of Dolgellau is a bustling place full of rough stone buildings, pubs, restaurants, shops and supermarkets. The locations of our cottages ensure you make the most of this thriving North Wales community, but also allow you the distance and peace and quiet to truly escape into the countryside.

We've specifically selected our cottages in the Dolgellau area to bring you the very best of Wales. From these cottages you'll be able to reach stunning Cardigan Bay beaches, the incredible mountains of Snowdonia, crystalline Bala Lake, the thrilling, internationally renowned National White Water Centre and Coed y Brenin Mountain Biking Centre. The area also features the spectacular Mawddach Estuary, Harlech Castle, stone circles, hill forts, spectacular narrow gauge railways and much, much more!


This Dolgellau property enjoys a quiet, peaceful setting in the small historic town of Dolgellau in the southern part of the beautiful Snowdonia National Park in North Wales. It offers easy access to rivers, lakes, mountain walks and a dedicated cycle/walking path along the Mawddach Estuary, all the way to the coast. From yoir doorstep, Dolgellau offers a range of scenic walks, interesting shops, pubs, cafes and excellent restaurants.

Several gift shops are located in the town square area or very close by, stocking a range of items and craft ware by renowned Welsh designers/artists. There is also a range of other shops including a couple of bakers, butcher, several café's, hardware, clothing, hairdressers, 2 supermarkets a Post Office and a Tourist Information Centre.

Amongst the best places to eat in the area is Y Meirionnydd, just a 2 minute walk from the cottage. This contemporary restaurant specialises in delicious menus using local produce. Other recommended restaurants in town include Y Sospan (traditional menu with a good choice to suit most palates) and Dylanwad Da, a popular Bistro with a regularly changing menu and a wide selection of wines. Dolgellau also has several pubs including The Unicorn with pub food, real ales and Sky TV. Just 2 miles outside the town you also have Bwyty Mawddach with amazing views of Cader Idris and the Mawddach Estuary. This restaurant boasts an award winning Chef specialising in fresh seasonal local produce.

There's a great selection of attractions in the area. First of all, Dolgellau is set on the foothill of Cader Idris, the second most popular mountain in Wales for climbers and walkers. The Mawddach Trail (as seen on the BBC's Railway Walks with Julia Bradbury) is another must and the estuary views and the Blue Flag beach of Barmouth at the other end certainly makes this walk / bike ride worth the effort.

Coed Y Brenin's internationally renowned Mountain Bike Centre and Go Ape centre is also within a 10 minute drive. It offers beautiful scenic forest trails for walking and biking of all abilities and an interesting visitor centre with a very good café. If you're looking for a unique experience, head towards Porthmadog for some Llama Trekking and Junior Quad biking. Other highly recommended attractions include Corris Craft Centre, King Arthur's Labyrinth, Portmeirion, Harlech Castle, Shell Island and the several steam mountain railways.
