3 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 5
Dolwyddelan, Snowdonia National Park, North Wales, Wales
'Gwenallt' is an attractive traditional stone Welsh cottage about 150 years old, and has some low doorways. It is cosy and warm and comfortably furnished with a simple cottage style decor, retaining many original features. It is carpeted throughout, except for kitchen and bathroom.

The small but convenient fitted kitchen, overlooking the back garden, has the original slate floor.

Dolwyddelan is in the Snowdonia National Park in the very attractive Lledr Valley on the A470, 5 miles to the south-west of Betws-y-Coed. It is a quiet but friendly village at an elevation of about 140m above sea level. It is an excellent centre for exploring Snowdonia by foot, car and even by rail. There is also horse riding and fishing in the locality and many places of interest to visit. The sandy beaches and resorts of the N and W coasts are 40...

Absolutely loved this place it was like staying at your grandparents home and going back in time. The cottage was absolutely spotlessly clean and so warm and comfortable we didn't want to leave, we will definitely be going back. Lovely little garden which is accessed across a bridge and listening to the constant running water at the back of the...

My partner and I had a lovely week in North Wales despite the weather. We visited Llandudno, Port Meirion, Anglesey, Caenarvon, Beddgelert and Conwy (all were within a 30-40 minute drive). Betwsy-Coed was a nice little place (within 10 minutes drive) which had a few walking shops, cafes and pubs. The roads are excellent, well maintained and well signposted in...

Management response:

Thank you for your comments - all the way from Central Europe. You would of course be welcome to return one day. The cottage Gwenallt is over 200 years old and built to last another 200 years.

About the neighbourhood
Dolwyddelan is situated in the Snowdonia National Park, on the A470 about halfway between Betws-y-Coed and Blaenau Ffestiniog. It lies at the foot of Moel Siabod (872m, 2861ft) in the beautiful Lledr Valley. It is conveniently situated for touring in the mountains of Snowdonia, for exploring the Gwydyr Forest, and for visiting the sandy beaches and resorts of the North and West coasts.

For rail enthusiasts it has railway links via the Conwy Valley Line to Llandudno and Blaenau Ffestiniog (and thence to Porthmadog via the Ffestiniog Railway with its fascinating steam trains). There is a convenient hourly bus service to Llandudno and Blaenau Ffestiniog.

Because many footpaths and old packhorse tracks lead to and from the village, it is an ideal place for exploring by foot or cycle the sur...
