This semi-detached “upside-down” cottage is situated ten minutes' walk from the centre of the market town of Dolgellau and sleeps five people in two bedrooms.

Penty is a lovely, comfortable cottage situated ten minutes' walk from the centre of the market town of Dolgellau, and enjoys views of the Cader Idris mountains. The cottage can sleep five people in two ground floor bedrooms, a twin and a family room with double and single beds, and also has a family bathroom. On the first floor, the open plan living area with kitchen dining area and sitting area make the most of the views. Outside, there is off road parking for two cars and a small rear lawned garden. With great walking and cycling nearby, Penty is a great base for a family getaway.


This is a wonderful place to stay in the Dolgellau area. It's conveniently located just outside the main Dolgellau town (although uphill on the way back), so it's in easy walking distance but there's no need to drive through the narrow streets of the town and there's somewhere to park. There are some great walks (e.g. New Precipice Walk) which can be done straight from the cottage, and others only a short drive away (e.g. Cadaer Idris). Within the cottage, the upstairs open-place living space has large windows to give great views of the town and mountain out front, and sheep and chickens at the rear! The kitchen was very well equipped, the beds comfortable for tired walkers, and it was spotlessly clean throughout. Also dog friendly!

This cottage is an absolute gem.The lounge and kitchen are upstairs and makes the most of the glorious views. We would definitely recommend it everyone, the best holiday cottage we have ever stayed at.

A very well equipped, comfortable cottage in an excellent position.

A perfect location for visiting our son in Aberystwyth and also for a lovely weekend in Wales. We will be back many times (probably next time in February). Thankyou

It was very good. The property was warm and comfortable and the location was perfect. Can't really fault it.
