Romantic Breaks don’t get better than this, and special family memories, too, after the cosy experience and adventure of Milk Wood Bach.

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.

Milk Wood Bach is indeed a home from home experience, with its beautiful, open-plan living room, with big wood burner and lush comfy sofas to cuddle up on. This light and airy room leads you through French doors onto the terrace where the large Hot Tub awaits you, and leads you into the lovely streamside garden with small pond and decked area overlooking the stream. This cabin of Scandinavian design is built to residential and modern standards, while maintaining that log cabin feel. It is fully heated and there are full-length heavy drapes at the six big windows in the living room, so it’s cosy and warm. The huge bathroom has a steam/power shower enclosure, W.C., bidet, and a clothes washer and tumble dryer. Opposite is the new sauna room with large sauna, plenty of room for 2 people. The King bedroom, fitted with quality mattress, has plenty of wardrobe space, a hairdryer, and radio alarm. There is a small double sofa bed available off the main living room suitable for a teenager or young child. 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 double oven cooker, fridge freezer and dishwasher. If you don't want to cook, the modern gastro pub (Cross Foxes) is just 2 miles (3.2km) away and the excellent Penmaenuchaf Hall Hotel Restaurant is 5.5 miles (8.8km) down the road. Or, you can stay cabinside instead, and eat adjacent the warm, cosy wood burner. You can have your breakfast or lunch on the wooden bench/table set in the peaceful garden, or on the deck overlooking the stream at the back of the garden, taking in the beautiful sounds of the many wild songbirds inhabiting the woodland view on three sides of the garden behind Milk Wood Bach.

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.

Location description from owner

The North Wales region

A Welsh wonderland under the towering peaks of the surrounding mountains and magnificent medieval coastal castles, the perfect place to discover Welsh history & culture.

Nearby to us is Cadair Idris, Wales’s second highest peak and great to climb. The advantage is that it’s far quieter than its well-known counterpart Snowdon. Cadair Idris allows you to experience a far more peaceful experience with its uncrowded sense of the breadth and beauty.

Nearby is also Coed y Brenin, world renowned for its fantastic network of Mountain Bike Trails.

This is an ideal base to explore greater Snowdonia National Park, situated in North Wales, with its breathtaking mountain scenery, crystal clear lakes and cascading waterfalls. Climb Snowdon, or travel to the summit in style on the charming Mountain Railway.

Alternatively, why not sample the beautiful green valley of Llangollen by steam train or from a leisurely horse-drawn canal boat. You could also explore the beautiful coastline, safe sandy beaches and water sports of the Llyn Peninsula, coastal paths, cycle trails and all kinds of extreme sports within easy reach. It’s the perfect holiday destination, for all.

The Barmouth area coast is our nearest beach, with miles of sand and quiet. To the north is historic Conwy, Victorian Llandudno or the Isle of Anglesey.

The general area is well known for its many narrow gauge steam railways, a perfect way to explore this beautiful land. For steam train enthusiasts you could spend the holiday discovering the many routes with its quaint stations.



Brithdir is a small village; alas, no shops now like many villages, but quiet and unspoiled. It’s like travelling into the past, and is set on a hill side with view of Cadair Idris and the valley below. The foot entrance to the Torrent Walk, also located in Brithdir, is 0.5 Mile from the lodges.

Torrent Walk: One of Britain’s most spectacular riverside paths, The Torrent Walk, is within walking range of the cabin, running alongside the River Clywedog in Brithdir, and is some two-plus miles east of Dolgellau. The omnipresent ferns and mosses carpet the valley in rich emerald green. Massive boulders and tumbling waterfalls suggest the name of this walk. The walk hosts a detour to the ruins of an old iron ore furnace from the early 1700s, and the remains of an old wool mill and warehouse. The sound of the river can be sweetly powerful along the walk when there’s a strong flow after it has rained, and there are splendid views of the waterfalls at places along the path.


Milk Wood Lodges is just a couple of miles from the ancient Welsh market town of Dolgellau, with its many listed buildings, and sits on the south bank of the Wnion River at the foot of Cadair Idris. You can spend time browsing the quaint local shops and enjoy a meal in one of the many good eateries in the town. It's the perfect base to explore this magical part of Southern Snowdonia, famous for its steam railways and castles. For outdoor enthusiasts, you will find white water rafting, sailing, fishing, mountain biking and great, scenic walks within easy travelling. For narrow gauge rail enthusiasts, you have plenty of choice. A 9-hole golf course also awaits in Dolgellau. Or, for those who just want to chill out, the private sauna, private outdoor Hot Tub, and cosy sitting room with wood burner are on tap at Milk Wood Lodges.

Attractions: Walks, Cycle Trails and Other Activities

It has been said that there is "no better walk than from Barmouth to Dolgellau, other than from Dolgellau to Barmouth". The views of the Snowdonia mountains sweeping down to the Mawddach Estuary are phenomenal.

Penmaenpool and the Mawddach Estuary:

The Mawddach Trail entryway is located in Dolgellau, and leads you along the beautiful Mawddach Estuary to Barmouth. The superb trail, used by both walkers and cyclists, is some eight miles long, and leads to the famous Barmouth Bridge, spanning the mouth of the Mawddach Estuary which opens out to Cardigan Bay. The bridge currently accommodates rail trains, cyclists and pedestrians. You can hire bikes at the local Dolgellau Cycle Shop in town, just minutes from the start of the Mawddach Trail. In addition, Penmaenpool is some two miles from Dolgellau. The Mawddach Trail passes through the hamlet of Penmaenpool, where there is located the Penmaenpool Pub.

For nature lovers and bird spotters, there are two RSPB reserves in the Mawddach Valley, namely, the Arthog and the Coed Garth Gell. Coed Garth Gell offers superb scenery and beautiful walks through oak woodland.

The Forest Park in Coed y Brenin is world renowned for its fantastic network of Mountain Bike Trails. There is a restaurant and cycle shop (sales, repair, and hire) onsite, and information on the many forest trails is to be found there at the Visitor Centre.

Precipice Walk: In addition to the Torrent Walk located close to Milk Wood Lodges, there is also The Precipice walk, located some three miles northeast from Dolgellau. Although this is an upland walk, it is on fairly level ground. Starting in woodland, the walk soon opens up to splendid panoramas of Snowdonia, the Coed y Brenin Forest, the Rhinog mountains, the beautiful estuary valley of the Afon Mawddach and finally Cadair Idris itself.

There is Horse riding in Fairbourne, near Arthog, including pony trekking on the beach. Bala nearby also has golf, as well as an excellent swimming pool and sailing on the lake. There is also angling, white water rafting, rock climbing, fishing and other popular sports within close range for visitors to Dolgellau.


Barmouth is a must to visit. The old seaside town meanders up steep narrow streets where you will find quaint cottages. The harbour area has lots of bars and cafes where you can enjoy local seafood and miles of beach. Small boat ferry trips are available from Barmouth across the mouth of the Mawddach River to Fairbourne from around Easter through the end of October.

“Truly tranquil - the perfect place to relax!”

Reviewed 23 Oct 2016

Well, what can we say about Milk Wood Bach..! It truly is one of the most relaxing breaks we've had. We've been on lots of amazing holidays but if your looking for somewhere in an idyllic setting (with no phone service!) and to enjoy stunning views and walks this is for you. The spacious cabin is fully equipped with everything you need from a comfy bed, sofas, dishwasher etc. The sauna and hot tub absolutely fantastic. Garden and stream behind was just lovely with a morning coffee. Wood burner was great in the evenings - really cosy. The cabin has a fantastic sound system too which you can plug your phone into etc. The walks nearby were stunning (and great for our Cocker Spaniel dog!) You are a little bit out of it here, shops for essentials etc aren't within walking distance but this was perfect for us. The nearest pub is the Cross Foxes which served great food and wine (and dog friendly) we actually walked to it one evening, takes around 40 mins to get there to walk but was worth it to avoid the 'who's driving'! Just remember to take your torch with you but there is one which the owner leaves at the cabin for you. Phil the owner is really helpful too. I could go on and on about this place but if you want a luxurious break in a beautiful setting in a cosy cabin and great scenery this is the place to go. We can't wait to book another break here next year, it's definitely now our place to go when we need to 'escape from it all' - highly recommended. If you're in two minds just book it, you won't be disappointed! Thank you for an absolutely brilliant break (just what we needed!) :)

“Perfect Honeymoon”

Reviewed 22 Jul 2013

Milk Wood Lodge was the perfect place to spend our honeymoon! The garden is beautiful and the hot tub is a real luxury! The cabin in very homely and was spotless when we arrived. There is a log burner and a sauna which we loved! The log cabin village where the cabin is situated is nice and quiet. Would definitely recommend as a romantic getaway for couples!

“Fantastic relaxing weekend”

Reviewed 15 Jul 2013

The lodge here is beautiful everything you could need. Hot tub in the garden is brilliant loved it sat out in the dark with just the lights on the hot tub. Sauna and shower steam room are great. So peaceful and yet so much to do in the surrounding areas. Perfect for a place to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Only thing I would mention is its not as isolated as I thought it would be and u do have neighbouring lodges either side. Don't let this put u off as it is beautiful. Hopefully we will be back in winter to get some use out of the log fire :)

“Peace and tranquility in wonderful surroundings and first class accommodation”

Reviewed 29 Apr 2013

A wonderful weekend in a first class luxurious lodge. The facilities were second to none, the owner has thought of everything to make your stay a home from home experience. The lodge was immaculate and the garden and surroundings just beautiful. The only sound is the singing birds and trickle of water from the stream....paradise!! The hot tub is amazing....perfect place for a relaxing stay. We definitely recharged our batteries and will be back again very soon.

“amazing property with all you will need.”

Reviewed 17 Jun 2012

Truly amazing property with all you need for a good stay,only downside we could find was that the heating was a little dissapointing as there was no heat in the bathroom(towel rail did not work or would be inadequate) ,you could go out and buy logs and kindle for the log fire as you are only allowed to use a fair amount that is provided? A stay in the winter months would be for the stout hearted as there is no heating in the bedrooms.A little thought would put this on our list of must stays for north wales stays.

Owner's reply: Thankyou for your reveiw, it is a truly amazing place. I think I need to clarify the heating situation though. Milk Wood Bach opened this summer . The first bookings were transfered from Dumbledore, which we had sold and guests were offered the upgraded accomadation or a refund,. As it was summer we did not put in bedroom or bathroom heating! We had lived at the property during the winter of 2010/11 when we had minus 19 degrees and were never cold so did not consider that heating would be needed till later in the year. In Septemeber, when the sauna was installed, bedroom and bathroom heating was installed to keep you all cosy. We provide all logs for our guests, they were restricted at Milk Wood Bach to begin with for gusets who had paid a lower rate for Dumbledore. We include towels/ bathrobes, sauna towels/ hot tub/ wifi/ sauna/ logs / heating/ honesty phone. Its a truly great place
