The North Wales region

Snowdonia is a beautiful part of Wales, full of contrasts between gentle meadows, dramatic mountain scenery and stunning lakes. The coastline boasts many beautiful long stretches of sandy beaches. The area is also dotted with many interesting ancient castles for those interested in history. There are numerous narrow gauge and steam railways, including one that can take you to the summit of Snowdon, Wales' highest mountain. The whole area is a haven for outdoor pursuits enthusiasts.


Dolgellau is situated in southern Snowdonia at the head of the Mawdach estuary and nestling below Cader Idris. Nearby are the seaside resorts of Barmouth and Twywn, with beautiful beaches. You are within 30 minutes drive away from Coed y Brennen, a heaven for mountain bike enthusiasts, golfing at Aberdovey, fishing, sailing, windsurfing, pony trekking, white-water rafting and many more outdoor activities. If you prefer the more gentle pursuit of bird-watching, you can spot red kites, buzzards, inland cormorants locally , as well as our own family of white sparrows in our garden.

"Great place, beautiful house."

Beautiful house, well equipped with everything you need. Enough room for 14 of us to sit for dinner, play games in the lounge with roaring open fire. All bedrooms are lovely most with ensuite bathrooms, with rooms at the top of the house which the kids loved. Everything you need for a get together with friends and family.

Thank you very much for your lovely review. We're glad you all enjoyed your stay despite the weather of early January! We do hope we'll be able to welcome you back again sometime in the future.

"Spacious, warm, clean, well fitted and lovely environment alround"

A real nice place to relax and enjoy this part of Wales. The house has a friendly feel and is warm and well looked after. Big enough for all to be away from each other if need be and to allow children to run wild, but controlled. Dogs have a field to run in and the local walks, including the sea, fully express the area. Lovely pub, local trains and small shop. Could have stayed forever. Thanks

Thank you very much for your warm words. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay over the Christmas period. We'd never have known that you'd let the children run wild as you left it so clean and tidy. You're very welcome to come again!

"Beautiful Pentre Bach"

A perfect place to introduce your new girlfriend/boyfriend to the whole family, lots of places for her/him to escape to it all gets too much with the Aunts, Uncles + Cousins. Lovely grounds, tidy and presentable house with amazing views + very close to the sea. Also really close to the secret (shh..) Blue Lake, magical. Highly recommended.

Many thanks for your kind review. We're so pleased you enjoyed your stay and hope that we'll be able to welcome you back to Pentre Bach again sometime.

"Very Grand and Luxurious"

Although the weather was not brilliant, Pentre Bach remained warm and comfortable. It was lovely to spend just 2 nights in such a beautiful, large house. Certainly was a treat and would highly recommend.
We also had Popty, the adjoining 4 bedroom cottage. This was ideal for our ever growing family, as it linked seamlessly to the main house.
Another bonus is that we were able to take 2 well behaved dogs :-) which was absolutely great, as not many folk allow animals!

Thank you for your lovely review. When Pentre Bach and Y Popty are booked together , they do indeed provide lots of space for an extended family. We do accept one pet per cottage. We hope we'll be able to welcome you all back again to Pentre Bach.

"Excellent Weekend"

We stayed for a long weekend all 18 of us in Pentre Bach and Popty.
The house was very well appointed and equipped to a very good standard.
All rooms were warm and toasty and the log fire in the lounge was a lovely
feature enjoyed by all. The open sea views were an added bonus.
The weather was mixed, but we came fully kitted out for all eventualities.
Walk up to the Blue lake nearby is a must. - a real hidden gem !
Make sure you get directions from the owners.
We will be back ....

Thank you very much for your excellent review. It was a pleasure to welcome you and your extended family to Pentre Bach and hope that you'll all come back again soon!

"Lovely house for large groups, warm and cosy with great view."

This is a lovely large house suitable for holidaying with friends or extended family.
We spent a week in October and it was warm and cosy with plenty of seating in the lounge and a lovely log fire, a large dining table in the dining room and well equipped kitchen.
The beds were comfy with nice en-suites/bathrooms, and lots of hot water!
Great views and walking country. Would recommend the local train that goes along the coast, the house is walking distance to the station and it gives a break from driving on the windy Welsh roads. Also recommend the guided walk at RSPB Ynis-Hir Reserve down the coast.

Thank you very much for your complimentary review. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay and will recommend the guided walk to future guests. We hope we'll be able to welcome you or any of your party back to Pentre Bach in the future.
