Description

Standing quietly in the foothills of Cadair Idris, this tastefully refurbished 18th-century former farmhouse is surrounded by fields, woodland, and the mountains, and captures all that is warm, peaceful, and welcoming about Wales. Whether you’re a climber, hiker, mountain biker, or you’re just plain old trying to get away from it all, this charming self-catering cottage will nestle you in the kind of comfort that will make you feel alive again.

For outdoor enthusiasts

Located just a mile and a half from the market town of Dolgellau, Penclogwynau makes for a great base for outdoor enthusiasts and holidaymakers alike. Featuring a stable door leading out to the garden, exposed-beam ceilings throughout the house, and a cosy inglenook fireplace with wood burner in the sitting room, the cottage clearly understands the richness of its heritage and traditional Welsh farmhouse roots. Balancing this rustic charm are tasteful, modern luxuries like underfloor heating and comfy seats, both in the sitting room and in the reading area. Top this all off with the serene views from every window, then imagine being able to come home to this after an invigorating day out. On cloudless evenings, dine and have a few drinks al fresco. Afterwards, gather around the fire pit and watch the stars, with the burbling sound of the nearby stream in the background.

Bedrooms and bathrooms

On the ground floor of the cottage is an underfloor heated wet room with WC. Then, cosily tucked under the gables, the bedrooms in this wonderfully peaceful house offer heart-stirring views across fields, woodland, and the Snowdonia hills and mountains to the north. The king-size master room features exposed original roof trusses and beams, and further benefits from an en-suite shower room. The next bedroom also boasts exposed beams and a king-size bed, with the further advantage of being able to convert the bed into two smaller singles, so as to accommodate a larger family or group of friends. Both rooms share the convenience of the family bathroom, with its large claw foot bath, charmingly set under more exposed beams and a low, sloping ceiling – the perfect place to let the remnants of the day soak away.

Practicalities

There is extensive level off road parking areas adjacent to the property. A tumble dryer is available in the garage. The garage also provides secure storage for your bikes. We can provide a high chair, stair gate and a cot, but ask that you please request these on booking and that you bring your own cot linen. We welcome two dogs at this property but please note they must remain on the ground floor only. Pet owners should be aware that the cottage is surrounded by sheep pasture.

Special Note: Please be aware that the stairs are steep and narrow and therefore not suitable for guests with limited mobility.

Reviews

Lovely warm cottage made for a very relaxing stay.

Mrs Lisa E,

Lovely peaceful clean property.

Mrs Dawn M,

Excellent all round

Mr Nicholas H,

Everything was thoroughly thought about to make guests comfortable, well informed and welcome.

Mr Terence C,

Great little place up in the hills

Mr Andrew B,

We were impressed with the excellent panoramic tour of the property which we saw on the 'Best of Wales' website prior to choosing this lovely cottage. Penclogwynau was a delight. Idyllically and tranquilly situated, it has beautiful 360 degree views, a pretty and extensive garden and inside it is attractively renovated to a high standard and very well equipped. We have many self catering holidays and Penclogwynau is very high on our list of the best holiday cottages we have visited. We shall be returning next year!

Mr Mike M,

Wholeheartedly recommend the property and Best of Wales.

Mr Adrian M,
