Y Neuadd Lwyd is a family run business and as such our primary concern is to ensure our guests experience a genuinely unique cottage which is cleaned and maintained to the highest of standards by the owners themselves. We pride ourselves on attention to detail and aim to provide our guests with a personal touch looking after their every need from the initial booking enquiry, ensuring the cottage is spotlessly clean, the bed linen is washed and ironed to perfection, to greeting guests with a warm welcome and if required showing our guests how to set and light the wood burning stove. As there is no agent involved no additional booking fee is charged.

This locally historical Grade II Listed cottage is a former 16th Century tavern which has been extensively modernised internally whilst retaining all of its external period character. On the ground floor, the property has spacious, open plan living accommodation with beamed ceilings, inglenook fireplace and woodburning stove, modern fitted kitchen and separate utility room. The Lounge area leads out onto an extensive decked terrace overlooking a private South West facing courtyard garden and the spectacular Snowdonia countryside beyond. Upstairs, the property has 2 stylish double bedrooms both with modern en-suite shower rooms. An additional fold away single bed is also available with bed linen for a nominal charge (suitable for a child). The cottage is approached along a private drive and has ample off road parking for 2 cars. Limitations with wi-fi can occur due to the rural location.

The cottage is within walking distance of the village shop, local pub which serves food and public transport links.

"Contemporary and Cosy"

Great little cottage near the centre of Doilwyddelan. The cottage has been very well converted and is ideal for a small family or two couples or two friends. Its quite unusual to find a two bedroom cottage with two ensuite bedrooms and was ideal for us. Well fitted kitchen which is open plan to the sitting room which had two comfy sofas and a log burner, very cosy. The owners even offer to light the fire for you so its on when you return in the evening. We spent the week walking so didn't know when we would be back but it was very easy and quick to get a roaring fire once the owner had shown us how to do it. The cottage is easy to find and well situated in the centre of the village near the local Spar shop (small but well stocked with everything we needed). There is also a hotel serving evening meals, Elen's Castle, within easy walking distance. The local pub was also does food was unfortunately closed until further notice when we visited. Wifi is apparently available but you have to stand outside to pick up the owners signal (thick walls prevent use from inside). We didn't try it but did get access at Elen's Castle.
