Buzzard Cottage Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
This lovely semi-detached cottage just two and a half miles from the market town of Dolgellau is set in a wonderful tranquil location on the lower slopes of Cader Idris. The cottage is full of modern amenities and old-world charm, making it a comfortable, pleasant spot for a family vacation. The property also comes with access to a lovely garden, set in wooded hills and surrounded by beautiful mountain scenery. With so much to do in the local area too, this is a destination not to be missed.

Far from the usual tourist crowds, this lovely small market town is located in the heart of southern Snowdonia and is set between the imposing Cader Idris mountain range and the sea. Located in an ideal spot for combining the many outdoor pursuits on offer in Snowdonia with trips to the soft sandy beaches of Barmouth, Fairbourne and Aberdovey, the charming town of Dolgellau is ideal for anyone looking to spend a holiday away from the hustle and bustle of city life. The selection of shops, pubs and places to eat in the town itself is large and there are a number of the nearby coastal resorts for variation. This is a wonderfully tranquil location offering superb scenery, mountains, forests, waterfalls, castles and beaches.

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.

We had a lovely stay at Buzzard Cottage - it's a great cottage in a beautiful area and there's so much to do in the immediate vicinity!

The location of the cottage, views from the property are stunning and there are plenty of walks right on the doorstep.The weather was a bonus, it just made a great holiday even better..

The cottage was situated in a quiet and tranquil position. The off road parking was good. The enclosed garden was great for my dog so I could let him out without keeping an eye on him . The traffic on the single track roads around was practically non existent so great for taking the dog for a walk. Views from these roads were fantastic. The view from the table and chairs in the garden was great. Would definitely come again.

A fantastic holiday. We both have mobility problems and we found Buzzard Cottage excellent for our needs. Very clean bedding and the cottage was spotless. Beautiful location, within easy reach of lots of beaches and shops. The peace and quiet of the location was first-class. Mr Mrs Jones were very helpful and friendly. We would certainly go back and recommend Buzzard Cottage to all our friends. Thank you all for a fantastic holiday.

The location of the cottage was peaceful and relaxing an ideal base for travelling around Wales. The cottage had everything you could possible need and more. It was like home-from-home even down to the simple little things being provided like kitchen foil, washing up liquid and even tea towels. The fenced garden made it safe for our dog to wonder round on her own without having to worry where she was. The area was so beautiful with fantastic views around. It was close enough to Barmouth if we wanted to travel there which we did every morning to let the dog have a run on the beach but also within easy reach to Conwy and other places that we visited whilst we were there. A really perfect holiday thank you so much we will definitely go back and stay there again.

We were delighted with the accommodation, cleanliness and well stocked cottage. We were greeted by the owner who made sure we had everything needed, and told us of local shops. The kitchen held an abundance of crockery, cutlery and glasses, plenty of cookware. The views are magnificent. There is a wealth of books, games and leaflets to help plan days out, we will certainly be back.

Friendly and welcoming owners. Cottage was as described - no surprises.
May 2011
The seclusion of the property and the setting of it in the mountains with amazing views, the peacefulness with no traffic noise just the sound of the cuckoo but also the fact that the nearest town was only 10 mins away in the car, a perfect holiday. Excellent walking right from the door. My highlight being able to lie in bed with the door open and looking out at the stars, no light pollution at this property.
Dr Cook
August 2011
The location was ideal, private and away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Stunning views, wildlife and plenty of walking/cycling routes right on the door step. There was plenty to do with various attractions all within a 30 minute drive.
Mrs Davies
August 2010
This was a real mountain retreat, away from it all, just the sounds of the owls in the treetops and the mewing of buzzards. An absolutely stunning cottage.

The cleanliness of the cottage was particularly appealing to me, as was from the wonderful scenery! It was lovely to walk in and immediately feel at home and comfortable. The owners were also very friendly and hospitable. An ideal location for a relaxing holiday.

We decided that we wanted to get away from all the stress of New Year so headed to this lovely cottage as other reviewers have stated it had everything you needed and I mean everything.. The kitchen has every utensil that you could possible want, decent dvds and a great selection of books. This was the cleanest cottage I have ever stayed in you must no that feeling when you have to wash a plate or glass before you use it well everything at Buzzard was immaculate I only marked down as the bed was sooo uncomfortable I couldn't sleep in it properly if you want a beautiful location with fantastic walks on your doorstep then book this cottage I would of re-booked it there and then if it wasn't for the bed situation.
December 2011
The cottage was better than the pictures and was exactly what we were looking for, i.e. in the country, with spectacular views, but nearer enough to the essentials. Would definitely look to use the place again.

This cottage pretty much has everything you would expect and a little extra. We took our 2 children and the dog and everyone enjoyed themselves. The cottage is very well placed to do many things that Wales has to offer such as walking, cycling or enjoying the beaches of Barmouth or Harlech which are in easy reach. We arrived late in the evening but the owners had kindly left some lights on and the heating was on high and made the key available. There were plenty of kitchen utensils available and was not at all matching which suited us as it seemed that if anything got broken it could be replaced by ourselves with no charge (quite good as we had children and a dog with us!) Lots of books and games at our disposal such as chequers, monopoly, cards and many many more. The games were dated but the classics never get boring! About 40 DVDs to choose from to suit all tastes but unfortunately no kids ones. Everything was very clean from the bedding and large towels to the kitchen. There were tea towels, dishcloths, washing up liquid, cleaning fluids and loo rolls aplenty which isn't always the case in self catering. Stunning view from the main bedroom and all around the cottage with a small outside area to enjoy the scenery in a little warmer weather and also ideal for the dog. My only minor issue with this place is that the sofa in the lounge is pretty uncomfortable and could do with replacing but as I say this is a very minor gripe that in no way should put you off booking this wonderful home from home cottage.

This was the third time we have stayed with Mr. & Mrs Jones. The cottage, location, general conditions etc. cannot be better. We would recommend this cottage very highly.

The owners were friendly and helpful but not too fussy so we felt nice and relaxed as we should be on holiday. They let our unruly pet lurcher play in the field with their own lurcher so there was even a holiday romance! The cottage was like a mountain cabin - truly luxurious and a great kitchen for cooking up monster meals after a day in the hills. The bedrooms were pretty, spacious and well furnished. The setting was superb - right in the midst of the wooded mountainside and from the garden you could see the peak of Cadair Idris poking above the forests - it was more like Yosemite than Wales! You could do some great walks straight from the cottage or just venturing out for a few miles in the car although it seemed like we were staying in the deepest wilderness the town of Dolgellau was just down the road for the shops and there was even a Breton onion-seller peddling his wares in the town centre when we were there. Although the weather was a bit wet we had a magnificent week - far exceeding our expectations. The only downside was the free range cattle that roamed around the cottage at night so I couldn't take the dog out for his late night walk. Also they only do Friday to Friday bookings so we missed a day of our holiday as we can't get out of work on Friday and can't generally leave home until Saturday.

We were very pleased to be able to take a holiday at this peaceful location, booking was easy, and on arrival we were greeted with a hospitality tray which was very welcome, and a lovely homely feel to the cottage which was to a high standard. It was nice to get to meet the owners who could advise us about the area - places to go etc. The cottage was beautifully appointed, with central heating so we were nice and warm, given the time of year. Although the cottages are surrounded by the fields and countryside, which gave us a lovely view, Dolgellau was only two miles away, so very convenient for the necessary shopping. A thoroughly enjoyable week that we would love to repeat.

We received a friendly, warm welcome from the owner, who also lived nearby & was available if we required anything during our stay. The cottage was compact, clean with a well stocked kitchen. The location was fabulous with great views of the mountains. There were a number of interesting walks, starting right on the doorstep. The town of Dolgellau was lovely with everything we required, but a car is needed to replenish food stocks as it is quite a long, steep walk back to the cottage. We loved the views & the peaceful surroundings. If I have to find any drawbacks it is possibily that it was rather too far to walk to the pub or takeaway in the evening ! We had a lot of rain during our stay.... but even that didn't spoil our holiday..... we had a lovely time at Buzzard Cottage.

Buzzard Cottage is an excellent place to stay if you like being out in the countryside amongst the hills with some excellent views and good walks along the extremely quiet single track road. The cottage is of a very good standard and had off road parking and central heating if required. It was good for dogs and had an enclosed garden.
