The North Wales region
This detached cottage is located within its own large, peaceful garden and enjoys expansive countryside views in all directions, including the stunning Cader Idris range. Only 1 mile away from the market town of Dolgellau in Southern Snowdonia, it is far enough away to offer complete tranquillity and close enough to take full advantage of the town's many amenities and attractions.
This includes a number of high quality restaurants such as Meirionnydd, Dylanwad Da and Bwyty Mawddach and some nice pubs such as the Unicorn. Dolgellau also has many interesting shops, cafes and an award winning supermarket offering a wide range of Welsh produce. The pretty, charismatic town of Dolgellau also has more than 200 listed buildings – more than any other town in Wales.
