The cottage was just perfect and had everything we needed. The owner was very welcoming and he has obviously worked very hard to create such a wonderful environment, including the garden which is beautiful. The cottage is situated in a great location for exploring the area and we managed to combine several walks, with plenty of relaxation during our week there.

A beautiful cottage with amazing grounds and river view. The owner is extremely pleasant and is keen to ensure that you make the most of your stay. The cottage has furnished to a high standard and is close to trails, beaches and Coed y Brenin which all our family enjoyed.

Fantastic, peaceful location overlooking the river. The shops, pubs and restaurants in Dolgellau were within very easy walking distance. Great accommodation and garden, with the best fitted out kitchen we've come across! Have already recommended it to our friends!!

High quality accommodation, furnishings and host's thoughtful attention to detail ensures everything you would need for a trip away from home is catered for. Lovely garden and river view make for a very relaxing break. Very convenient for shops so no need to stock up on too much food for the bigger family.

We had a really nice week - this cottage is in a great location overlooking a lovely river and countryside, with an immaculately kept garden going down to the rivers edge with a BBQ area by the riverside. There is not another building or road in sight, however it is just on the edge of town and really conveniently situated for the shops, supermarket and restaurants - everything is just a few minutes walk away. We could not fault the location or cottage in any way. There is a lot to do in the area; the Mawddach trial leading to Barmouth is lovely to walk or cycle, there are many mountain walks and mountain biking at Coed y Brenin. The local beaches are also lovely. The owner who lives next door was particularly helpful, he has a great knowledge of local walks and places to visit.

Great location: lovely property with garden descending to a beautiful little river. Ideally situated for walking around Cader Idris, beach at Barmouth and cycling down estuary. Definitely somewhere we'd go back to. Owner very helpful.

This gem of a cottage was perfect. Set in a lovely garden with river views. Every facility is provided and the house is really comfortable. The furnishings are top quality and the beds so comfortable I haven't slept that well in months. The house is just a few minutes' walk from the pretty town of Dolgellau, with an excellent range of places to eat and good sized supermarkets for everyday supplies. The house is really easy to reach and we explored all over North East Wales. The owner is very welcoming and helpful and made our visit really enjoyable. He has great ideas of things to do. If you filled all the beds then sitting down to a meal together would be a bit cosy and the spiral staircase might be an issue for some but we (including my mum in her 70s) had a great time and were really comfortable. We would definitely stay here again.

Cottage is next door to owners home and benefits from the care and attention to detail he has taken to make it a clean and comfortable place to make your home for a week (or more). We felt very much at home here, the lovely location beside the river makes it a place to spend some quiet time not just a place to sleep between days out.
September 2013
For once, the photos give a real sense of how nice a place is: this is a beautifully located house backing onto a lovely sloping lawn that leads down to the clear water of the river. The interior of the property is equally nice: comfortable and well equipped. The owner is really very helpful. And the location is great: lots of great walking and the coast at Barmouth is in easy reach by car or hired bicycle. We'd definitely go back and we don't often say that.

Lovely cottage, with the most fab view. Lovely to look out in the morning to the tranquil river and quite beautiful garden, which the owner obviously works hard to ensure it stays that way. The cottage is very clean and beds are very comfortable. Well equipped and wonderful fluffy towels. This is a superb location, which we were able to access all the sights very easily and without having to travel for miles. Owner helpful and able to answer any questions.
August 2012
We were honoured to be the first guests at Felin Ship, it was everything we had imagined and so much more! The cottage is set in a beautiful gardens next to the river and only a short drive to lots of exciting days out. There are beautiful walks close by offering breath taking views. The owner is extremely friendly and helpful, offering very useful advice whilst giving us complete privacy throughout our stay. There is everything needed in the cottage which has been decorated and finished to a very high standard! The towels and bedding were lush! We would highly recommend Felin Ship to anyone looking for a high quality, home from home cottage! We wish Roland every success for the future and will be returning! Thank you!

The garden was impressive with plenty of space for parking. There was a BBQ and utensils, a comfy sofa, bed and free WiFi. We found ourselves within a central location to lots of attractions. This cottage should be on anyone's short-list without a doubt.
