“Fabulous Cottage in beautiful surroundings”
Reviewed 9 March 2017 for a stay in February 2017

This is the most beautiful cottage set in the hillside, but only about 15 minutes walk from the centre of Dolegellau. It is tranquil and relaxing and fitted out to a very high standard and is spotlessly clean.

The beds are super comfy, the kitchen is fully fitted and the lounge is huge, with plenty of room to relax and read a book, or you can take a walk directly from the cottage door. There are plenty of walks nearby and the views from every aspect of the cottage are stunning.

Absolutely wonderful place to recharge your batteries and would recommend most highly.

Thank you for booking with Best of Wales and taking the time to write such lovely comments.
Glad you enjoyed the cottage, it is gorgeous and if you can tear yourself away the walks are stunning.
Hope you return again as you would be most welcome.

“A lovely cottage”
Reviewed 6 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Berthlwyd is a lovely cottage ... very attractive inside and out, spacious, warm, well equipped, clean, accessible, with mountain views and a very helpful owner (Margaret) nearby. It's a great place to relax, whether you're on an action holiday or seeking a quiet break.

“Beautiful Cottage”
Reviewed 17 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We had a wonderful week at Berthlwyd on Honeymoon! The cottage was immaculate, tastefully furnished, very clean and set in beautiful surroundings with wonderful views in all directions. It's also very spacious for a two bedroom cottage. The owner popped in to say hello and made us feel very welcome.
The location is excellent and amongst other things we particularly enjoyed walking up Cader Idris, riding on the beach at Fairbourne and the cycle trails at Coed Y Brenin. Definitely hope to go back again, a really lovely place to stay.

“Beautiful Tranquiility”
Reviewed 29 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

This cottage is very spacious, is set in a delightful rural area and is very well equipped, from the large kitchen to the equally large lounge with wood-burning stove. There is a great deal of space for parking, the garden would be lovely on a sunny day when it is warm and there are photographic opportunities in almost every direction. We walked a fair way from the cottage, but there are some gorgeous places to walk or cycle in the area. We will definitely return.

“A beautiful cottage”
Reviewed 5 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Berthlwyd is a beautiful cottage. It's in immaculate condition, and is decorated and furnished with style. It's deceptively spacious, is well equipped, has wonderful views, and is perfect for a relaxing holiday. It's great to recover by the log burner on the comfy settees, after enjoying one of the many local walks. Margaret, the host, is extremely kind and helpful. It's definitely a cottage to return to!
