Description from owner


We are now doing 4 nights at the price of 3 nights, midweek Monday to Friday, except the Summer where it is 4 nights for the price of 3.25 nights. The “Book your stay" form will get this wrong by 18% to 25% above the real rental price and we will correct this at invoice /Quote point. We are also doing a “no-Hot Tub price”. This works out on average to be £208 a week, or £109 on a short break reduction. We do limited 2 night extended stay breaks please contact us for a price. Please see “Owners notes” at bottom of advert.

Featured in The Guardian’s “Britain’s Top 10 Cutest Log Cabins”, Milk Wood is one of our Dog Friendly Snowdonia retreats with indoor Sauna, woodburner and WiFi, hidden in a clearing on the edge of the woods on the slopes of the Wnion Valley, within an exclusive small complex of private log cabin homes. Imagine a cosy log cabin sheltered by the woods, in an idyllic countryside setting, stargazing on a clear night, then relaxing inside by the log fire with a glass of wine (or hot cocoa!), and then retiring to a comfy bed to dream the night away. Romantic Breaks don’t get much better than this, and special family memories, too, after the cosy experience and adventure of Milk Wood.

Whether you seek the perfect unwind, or have a birthday, anniversary or just need that special break, Milk Wood Lodges, the location and the wider area is ideal for couples and families, and will cater for your every need.

You enter Milkwood from the rear decked area. A long hallway leads to doors off to the sauna room, bedrooms and kitchen/ breakfast room, and finally into the spacious sitting room with large wood burner, comfy sofas & beautiful drapes. Adjoining this is the cosy dining room for that intimate meal. All rooms are furnished in modern style, while keeping that romantic log cabin feel. Original artworks by a local artist hang on the walls. This stunning 5-Star cabin has free Wi-Fi, as well as Sony TV & audio equipment for your enjoyment. So, if the weather keeps you in, you can entertain yourselves.

The fully fitted kitchen has a wide cooker, large American style fridge freezer, dishwasher, as well as a clothes washer/tumble dryer. If you don't want to cook, the modern gastro pub (Cross Foxes) is just 2 miles away. Or, you can stay cabinside instead, and eat by the warm, cosy wood burner, or have your breakfast or lunch on the wooden bench/table set in the peaceful garden, taking in the beautiful sounds of the many wild songbirds inhabiting the woodland view on three sides of the garden behind Milkwood.

It provides a tranquil space with ambient quietness, fresh air to breath, no light pollution; this is what visitors find so striking about the lodge, Brithdir and the area. The noise of the city is removed from one’s senses and a whole new world appears, with views of woodland, valleys and hills. It’s the ideal place to recapture serenity and recharge the batteries.

In the old Welsh town of Dolgellau there are quaint shops, cafes and restaurants. There is also a

Co-Op for general food and a Euro Spar that has fish, good wines and other specialties.

Before emailing a request, please check the Availability & Price/booking information and our start days and bookable periods that we do. We also need to know the full party make up and Dog’s breed & age before we quote.

NOTE - In case Milkwood is showing as booked, we have two other lodges: Wnion Wood for 4, and Milk Wood Bach for 2 or 3. (Search by home ID 147796 and 227079 at the top of the page.) These are luxury lodges, each with their own private Sauna. Everything is fully inclusive within the price, including all linen, logs & utilities.

Very Good


Reviewed 19 May 2019

We found the accommodation, the garden, the hot tub and the site more than surpassed our expectations. Everywhere was clean and tidy and it was a joy to return to after a great day out, especially the hot tub. We are planning our return and maybe a regular local short break escape.

“5 star!!”

Reviewed 26 Dec 2017

Myself, wife and 2 daughters ( aged 11 and 9 ) have just enjoyed a 4 day break at Milk Wood Lodge. Where do we start?...from the minute we picked up the keys from the security box and walked onto the the rear decking, we could hear the hot tub bubbling away ready for us. The lodge itself is better equipped than most homes with 5 star fixtures, fittings and cleanliness. We easily cooked a full Xmas dinner yesterday as the kitchen is amazing! There is literally everything there you need, even including fresh dressing gowns for us all. I would imagine that it's a fantastic location to enjoy beautiful walks, as the surroundings are stunning - we, however, took full advantage of the cosiness of the lodge and enjoyed a lazy Xmas! We all throughly loved spending time in the hot tub, followed by a sauna. There literally isn't one aspect of our time spent at the lodge that we could fault - absolutely perfect and will be highly recommending. Thank Philip and Pamela for a truly magical Xmas. Stuart, Lisa, Lottie and Millie.

“Complete relaxation”

We stayed here for Christmas it was delightful. The cottage is well equipped. We stayed with are two children and went on lovely walks. Amazing scenery. Totally relaxed and refreshed. Would highly recommend

“Cosy cabin.”

Reviewed 28 Sep 2016

Really enjoyed our stay. Got away for the weekend took the dogs, walked in the stunning surrounding area. Came back and relaxed in this beautiful cabin, sauna room inside, hot tub on the decking and a nice garden backing onto the woods. A car is needed to take a trip into town 5 minutes away but that didn't bother us. Clean cabin, relaxed and peaceful place.

“Simply breathtaking.”

A stunning location with beautiful views and amazing walks. The lodge is perfect in every way. Relaxing in the hot tub after a day out is the perfect way to end the day. Will definitely return.

What a fantastic Lodge - So Fabulous we are going to book again. Love the attention to detail. The hot tub is amazing. Cant wait to go back. total HEAVEN : )

“Absolutely Fabulous!”

Reviewed 21 May 2014

This was our second trip to MilkWood and it was every bit as good as we remembered! the attention to detail is excellent and care has been paid to every little thing - there was even new garden furniture and a BBQ. I cannot recommend this property highly enough!


Reviewed 26 May 2013

The most relaxing break ever! The facilities were amazing, such care has been taken to ensure the guests are as close to luxury as possible. I didn't get a chance to take advantage of hot tub. The location of the log cabin was fantastic - everything is accessible to walks, trips to seaside and the most gorgeous scenery.

“Little piece of heaven”

Reviewed 20 Mar 2013

This place is amazing. The hot tub was just divine and we were so lucky with the weather cause when your in the tub at night you see nothing but the stars !!! So piece full and relaxing. The owners have thought of everything. The little town of Dolgellau was about a 5 minute drive with the a large Eurospar and the pubs. Try the fish and chippy....amazing but the opening times are pretty short. Would definitely recommend to anyone who wants to get away from city life for a few days. Wifi is good but you can struggle getting signal to make calls with mobiles but we didn't go here to connect to the world, we wanted to get away from it!!!! Heaven !

“Little Slice of Heaven... All you need for a truly exceptional break!”

Reviewed 30 Oct 2012

Milk Wood is truly as outstanding as Ereca & Phil explain in the description. If you are cynical like myself then please take time to read each review. I had high expectations of it having read the reviews and was still blown away for what they have to offer. 5* without the clinical feel, so that you feel likes its a home to relax in. They have thought of everything that you need and a lot more. The sauna and hot tub & log fire really make it extra special and are just the ticket after the spectacular walks nearby. This lodge is in the corner of the sight so when you are sitting outside you feel like you are on your own, its totally secluded and at the bottom of the garden there is a lovely wood. Never been to Wales and did not realise what a beautiful friendly place it is to visit. We will definitely be back for another visit and would not hesitate to choose Milk Wood as our place to stay. Never been to Wales, will not be the last time. The area is totally breathtaking. Some of the nicest scenery i've ever seen.
