“Amazing place”
Reviewed 3 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We had a wonderful time at Dolgadfa, it is an amazing house in an amazing location with beautiful grounds. I would definitely visit again! You have to drive / taxi to local pubs or restaurants (could walk it during the day) but the taxis were cheap and it's no hassle, it made no difference to our stay, we were happy to chill out in front of the log fires. Lou is brilliant, really helpful and flexible.

“Kate's hen weekend”
Reviewed 27 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Wonderful weekend in a wonderful location! The house is lovely and was more than spacious enough for our party 11 adults. The dining room in particular was lovely with plenty of space to seat us all! The kitchen had everything you could possibly need and the beds were lovely and comfortable!
Would highly recommend this accommodation!

“A llittle bit of heaven!”
Reviewed 10 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Just returned from a weekend break celebrating my husband's 70th Birthday in this lovely 2 unit self catering accommodation. We were a party of 8 adults, 4 children and 2 dogs. The natural beauty of the surroundings was outstanding and the river running close by the property added to this.

The accommodation is lovely and had everything we needed. It was spotlessly clean and the quality of the furnishings, bedding, crockery etc. was first class. With such a large party there were always dishes to be washed and the dishwasher was full after every meal but there were still ample items of tableware/cookware/cutlery etc. left in the cupboards to use while the dishwasher was on.

On the Saturday evening we sat down to a special dinner for my husband's birthday in the spacious dining room where we were all able to sit round the table in fromt of a lovely log fire.
There are wood burning fires in both units and ample supply of logs available to us which we made full use of. Nothing nicer on a dark winters evening than a real fire!!

I mustn't forget to mention how comfortable the beds were and the quality of the bedding and pillows - we all slept like logs!!

There were board games, table tennis equipment, maps of the area and a plentiful supply of books to read.

Lou the owner was very helpful and friendly and came over to welcome us on arrival to offer any advice or answer any questions that we had.

In summary, this accommodation has everything one could wish for and I would recommend it for a peaceful, spacious and comfortable accommodation for a large party. Perfect!!

Unfortunately we were only able to stay for 2 nights so weren't able to explore many of the lovely places nearby but hopefully we will return and for longer next time! Thank you Lou.

“Great house, great location”
Reviewed 31 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

These 2 self catering units are great for big family groups or large groups of friends. Sleeping 12 in total the 2 'houses' have a lovely big sitting room, large dining spaces and a very well appointed kitchen complete with aga. Set in lots of open countryside there is a lot of scope for games of football/badminton close to the house and if you like cycling, the roads around the house are ideal - quiet and safe. Dolgadfa is a really great 'getaway' destination.

“Wonderful family Holiday”
Reviewed 12 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013
person found this review helpful

Our second year at dolgadfa and it did not disappoint. Loads of space for our family of 10 Adults, 2 toddlers and our 4 very active Dogs. Lots of lovely doggie walks, fishing and just lazing around the large gardens as the weather was fantastic. Beautiful views and a great base for visiting Snowdon and the surrounding areas, would have stayed another week if we could, so much to do and the house and barn are modern and soooo lovely. Don't hesitate to book Dolgadfa for a family break expecially if you have Dogs, its amazing and we will all definately be back in 2014. Lou the owner is always on hand to provide help and information, lovely lady.
Thanks Lou, see you next year.
