Y Bwthyn Family Cottage description

Holiday home
Surrounded by the spectacular scenery of the foothills of the magnificent Cader Idris is this comfortable property; a detached modern bungalow in the tiny rural hamlet of Bontnewydd just three miles from Dolgellau. This lovely property offers bright, well-equipped open plan interior accommodation whilst outside there is an attractive patio, perfect for a barbecue or relaxing in the sun with a good book. The property is well served by the amenities of Dolgellau and is within easy driving distance of one of Wales' most popular mountains - Cader Idris – as well as the Coed Y Brenin Forest Park.

Surrounded by the spectacular scenery of wooded hills and mountains, the tiny hamlet of Bontnewydd is well placed for the wonderful Cader Idris Mountain Range and Coed Y Brenin Forest Park, which provide some of the best mountain biking in Europe. Also close by is the popular town of Dolgellau, which boasts a maze of pretty streets and a variety of shops, pubs and restaurants. This lovely town is just three miles away and offers everything a visitor might need whilst staying in the local area. The impressive peaks of Snowdonia are close by too and are excellent for enthusiastic climbers, walkers, bikers and birdwatchers whilst for those who prefer a lower altitude there are many stunning sandy beaches which are ideal for family fun.

Famous for its choirs, stunning mountain ranges and beautiful valleys, this wonderful country has something for everyone. From Snowdonia in North Wales to the Brecon Beacons and the Pembrokeshire Coast in the South.

Excellent service - the owner was very helpful. The house was spotless, very comfy beds & well equipped. Spacious - 2 good sized bedrooms. Beautiful location - very handy for touring the Snowdonia area & local beaches. Short drive to a very good Spar Europe supermarket. Dolgelly quaint - need to book if eating out, especially weekends. Had a very relaxing week & would be very happy to return there.

The location was good - just outside the range of mobile phone reception.
