Upstairs the landing leads on to the open plan lounge/diner/kitchen with separate cloakroom.

The lounge/diner has a feature fire, with TV and CD/DVD home theatre system. We provide a small amount of games books and DVDs on the bookshelf in the lounge.

A French door opens onto the raised decking with southerly aspect and fabulous views over the sea.

A patio table and chairs are provided on the decking and a barbecue is available here from Easter to October. Steps off the decking lead to the private lawned area and parking. Access can be gained easily from the garden to either floor.

The North Wales region

The Gulf Stream bathes this coastline in warm air and though the high mountains may be shrouded in mist, from the advantage of Rola cottages where the mountain rise hasn’t had chance to cool the air to cloud, the view is splendid.

The atmospheric Castell y Bere, a ruined castle sitting atop a rocky outcrop in the Dysinni valley is nearby. A mediaeval church at Llangelynin and prehistoric settlements with standing stones above Llwyngwril define the history of the area.


Llwyngwyril village one mile away, has a shingle beach, church, pub, railway stop, post office, grocery store, coffee shop and art gallery.

Fairbourne has a sandy beach, dunes, shops and pubs

A ten minute drive to Tywyn brings supermarkets, banks, shops, pubs, promenade, cinema,leisure centre doctor, and fuel.

"Peaceful and tranquil ..."

Yr Olaf was as described, so no argument there. Secluded, private and almost completely shut off from the outside world. No shops/restaurants in walking distance (the description makes that clear) … More

We have just returned from Yr Olaf and were delighted with the cottage. The views are stunning and the cottage itself is well appointed and very comfortable. My partner fished off the private beach … More

We wanted somewhere just to get away for a couple of nigts peace and quiet, but still with that romantic feeling.........and we got everything we could have wanted. The location is far enough away from the town ( approx 6 miles to main supermarkets) and the views are stunning. We were lucky enough to have good weather and the wallk along the beach, even though it is more large stones and shingle than beach was worth the effort. Rounded the day off with a glass of wine on the balcony watching the sun set ... as I say perfect........ we will be back.
