Stunning location overlooking the Mawddach estuary where you can watch the abundant wildlife in and around the river (we were lucky enough to watch otters feeding). Recommend cycling the Mawddach trail to Barmouth. A number of walks are possible from the property although a stroll down to the pub across the toll bridge is one you should do!

Super converted Chapel with fabulous views of the Mawddach estuary.. All facilities are over three floors and very comfortable. Ideal for touring Snowdonia and surrounds, situated half way between Barmouth and Dolgellau = convenient for supplies or the beach...

Nice cottage and nice location. Had a great few days with some very nice hillwalking and lovely remote beaches (that we had to ourselves) all within 20 to 30min drive.

A really lovely location and view over the river Mawddach. A short drive to either Barmouth and Dolgellau and ideally located for exploring lots Snowdonia or West Wales.

The cottage was superb and well equipped. Less mobile people may find the three levels of the cottage difficult having to climb the stairs. One set going down to the kitchen and bathroom and stairs to the upper level 2 bedrooms and family bathroom. The road noise from the 2 rear bedrooms is loud so be aware.

Great accomodation with a stunning view of the estuary from all three floors. It's close to the road but all the main rooms are on the opposite side of the house overlooking the estuary and mountains and road noise was never an issue.

We absolutely loved staying in the cottage with its breathtaking views , homeliness, facilities and access to all Snowdonia has to offer. We stayed over the August BH and were not bothered by road noise. If you want to escape and enjoy the views this really is the place to go.

This property has excellent and ever-changing views of the Mawddach estuary and is a very good base for walking around Dolgellau and up Cadair Idris. Drawbacks are the constant noise from the road, the lack of a tumble drier and the rather beaten-up paintwork.
