Dafarn Newydd Countryside Cottage description

Holiday home
Dafarn Newydd is a welcoming property on the edge of the village of Dafarn Newydd, in Snowdonia. The cottage has one bedroom with a king-size double, and an en-suite shower room. Downstairs is a kitchen and a sitting room with dining area and woodburner in an inglenook fireplace. Outside is off road parking for two cars, and a private garden area. With walking and cycling on offer nearby, and the rest of Snowdonia on the doorstep, Dafarn Newydd makes an ideal romantic year-round base.

Dinas Mawddwy is a pretty village in the southern part of the Snowdonia National Park made up of just one street and overlooked by the spectacular Aran Mountains. Nearby the Meirion Willen Mill is open to visitors and occupies a lovely position on the banks of the River Dovey. Dolgellau is a charming town with 17th century bridges and a variety of pubs and eateries situated 10 miles away from Dinas Mawddwy by the foothills of Cader Idris, one of Wales' most incredible mountains. This region is a haven for lovers of the outdoors with many walking, climbing, biking and birdwatching opportunities available throughout Snowdonia and at the nearby Coed-y-Brenin Forest, famous for its challenging mountain bike trails. Gorgeous sandy beaches, the Mawddach Estuary, and narrow guage steam railways are all close to this wonderful year-round holiday location.

Cottage in a lovely situation, with a small private area of the garden for our use. Cottage was clean, very comfortable, had everything that we needed for our stay. The owner was welcoming and helpful without bothering us. The area has so much to offer visitors with some superb scenery.

Everything was very good, the welcome and items provided was way above what we expected, would definitely book again if we are in the area. At first we were a little concerned about noise from traffic being on a main road but we were pleasantly surprised at how little there was. Highly recommend this cottage.

We have stayed at 3 cottages in Wales this year and this cottage was by far the best. The attention to detail, location, style and quality of finish in the property sets it apart from the rest. Thanks for a great stay!

Gem of a cottage finished to a very high standard. Cosy and comfortable with a lovely wood burner in a good location. Friendly owner who has thought of everything and even provided a welcome pack of staples.
Mr Tiffany
May 2014
The overall cleanliness of the cottage was very impressive. The Conservatory is an excellent addition to the cottage, especially when the sun warms it up, or for listening to the rain. It was very comfortable to relax in at the end of a busy day, I just wish it was colder so we could have lit the magnificent fire more than we did.
Mr Irving

Mrs Taylor

Mrs Place
August 2013
The cottage had been refurbished to an extremely high standard and was very comfortable. We had good weather and so were out a lot of the time, but the cottage would have been cosy and good for days in had that not been the case. There was plenty of space and the conservatory was a big plus. The garden was beautiful. The owner was most helpful without being at all intrusive. The cottage made a good base for touring Snowdonia.
Mrs Taylor

Mr Evans
February 2013
The location was perfect for our cycling, running and walking. The cottage was in our opinion the very best standard and the greeting gifts of food, chocolate and wine a caring gesture from the owner who was around for support but unobtrusive in demeanour. We would not hesitate come here again!
Mr Barnes
August 2013
The cottage was perfect. The lounge and conservatory are very comfortable. The sitting room is great and has Sky+ for rainy days and evenings! Upstairs the bed and bedroom were very comfortable. The bathroom is first class! The Red Lion is about 10 minutes walk away and does excellent beer and food.

A wonderful cottage in a beautiful part of Wales.

An truly lovely cottage, spotlessly clean and with everything you could possibly want.
February 2012
Beautifully situated cottage, recently made over to an excellent standard throughout. Lots of really personal details, such as owner's books in bookshelf and art on walls. The owner has sought to think of everything a guest might need, from the comprehensively kitted out kitchen, to board and card games in the coffeetable drawers. Complementary wine, chocolate and fruit basket on arrival made for a really great impression on what was a much-needed break for us. Highly recommended.
