“Beautiful cottage - exceeded our expectations!”
Reviewed 31 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

My partner and I stayed at Dolydd cottage for three nights at the end of January 2017. This was a combined Christmas and birthday gift for my partner, and it is only fair to say that the cottage (and it's location) exceeded our expectations.

The owners were incredibly helpful. On arrival we were greeted with complimentary wine, chocolates, Welsh cakes and fresh milk. The cottage was exceptionally clean and lovely and warm despite the winter weather. Everything in the cottage was to a very high standard: from the quality of the bedding/towels, to the modern oven/microwave, to the fabulous wet room (inc Jacuzzi bath), and even the quality of the cooking utensils in the kitchen.

The cottage is in a fabulous location. We drove to Porthmadog for fish and chips one day (& did part of the coastal walk beyond Borth-y-Gest). On the second day we drove to Portmeirion, and spent a couple of hours walking around the tourist village. On a less sunny day (we had been exceptionally lucky with the weather) we walked from the cottage to Llyn Mair (leaflets including map are provided by the cottage).

We cooked for two nights, and on the final night had a lovely meal at The Grapes which is a 2 minute walk from the cottage. The food was delicious (I ordered a 10oz sirloin steak served on a sizzling platter) and then service was great!

If the wonderful Welsh countryside is your cup of tea, and you deserve some well earned rest and relaxation by the crackling fire, I would highly recommend staying at this cottage. I have already started recommending it to my friends and family!

Thank you to the owners for an uncomplicated, cosy, and utterly wonderful weekend escape.

“Country cottage escape”
Reviewed 6 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We enjoyed a lovely stay at Dolydd Cottage this past week. The cottage was immaculate when we arrived, with the addition of milk, wine and welsh cakes to welcome us. It is so cosy with the wood burning fire and under floor heating. The area is beautiful and offers a real escape, local shops are a car drive away so this is the only thing to be aware of (I would suggest a car is essential). We would definitely recommend the cottage and hope to visit again!

“Wonderful”
Reviewed 25 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We've just spent 6 days at Dolydd cottage in Maentwrog. It was absolutely beautiful & we've had a wonderful break.
It's small but perfect. Sleeps 2 in a beautiful Cosy bedroom with plenty of storage & has a tv/free view/DVD player.
The living room with kitchen is gorgeous, with a wood burner and Tv/free view/DVD player. Lots of information on places to visit provided.
And the bathroom is nothing short of luxury. It has underfloor heating, a rain fall shower & a huge jacuzzi bath.
Great location for exploring that area of Wales. A 10/15 min drive from Porthmadog/bleaneu Ffestiniog/Harlech. Approx 45mins from Caernarfon and 1hr from Llanberis.
Can't recommend it enough, we will definitely be back

The cottage is an absolute delight. We really enjoyed our stay. The jacuzzi bath is lovely and relaxing. Bedroom is cozy and comfortable. Kitchen well equipped and easy to use once you've got the basic uses of the oven programming.
The whole place is quaint but homely. We would love to book again in the future.
