The lodge is absolutely stunning. So cozy and homely and has a very warm comfortable feeling from the moment you enter. It is packed with all the amenities to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. The hot tub was amazing and the sauna was a nice little extra that we haven't experienced in other lodges. The beds were also extremely comfy! I would well recommend these lodges to anyone looking for a break in snowdonia.
We stayed here over new year, first of all it is excellent value for money! It has everything you need for a relaxing break away, there isn't any mobile phone signal but wifi is provided in the lodge which was very good quality. The hot tub was perfect, kept its temperature even on the coldest of nights. The lodge was very clean and had a lovely homely feel to it. The only very minor downside was the shower, it was not very powerful and temperature was not the best. We did not have a problem with the laminated instructions as previous reviewers have commented on. They are not in your face and we felt that the owner of the lodge takes great pride in his cabin so I can't really blame him for leaving information for guests to read. I would without a doubt stay again!
The lodge is beautiful, kept to a high standard with a real homely feel. We really enjoyed our stay here, it has everything you need for a romantic getaway. Comfy bed, cosy living room with log fire, hot tub and sauna were amazing. The only negative was the shower, it was either too hot or freezing. Without enough hot water for a bath for us both we had to make do! But otherwise a fantastic beautiful lodge that I would definitely recommend.
My husband and I stayed at Milk Wood lodge in October and had a lovely time.
The lodge was very easy to find and our satnav (my iPhone) worked the entire way. It's worth noting that the lodge is located on a site of approximately 35 residential lodges, however this did not impact on our stay. There is a small supermarket 3 minutes drive away in Dolgellau which sold everything you needed. We found the town of Dolgellau quite quiet, so ventured out to the surrounding villages and coastal towns which included a trek up Mount Snowdon. We found Barnmouth the nicest nearby costal town.
The lodge was very large and like other reviewers we enjoyed the hot tub, sauna and log fire. We were very impressed with the added extras such as the tea, milk, biscuits and bathrobes.
Unlike other reviewers we did not have a problem with the laminated signs; we think that perhaps other reviewers were offended by the tone in which the signs were written rather the signs themselves. The only problem we encountered was the shower; we appreciate it's an electric shower however it was by far the worst shower we have ever encountered which wasn't helped by it being located in the corner of the bath rather than flat surface.
Overall we had a lovely stay; the lodge was quiet, warm and cosy. Perfect for a romantic trip away.
