With two bedrooms, a merger of modern convenience and period charm and with sleeping space for four people, the property is well suited to a family and is just over two miles from the market town of Dolgellau.

This cosy semi detached cottage offers comfortable accommodation, all on one floor. This lovely cottage has been expertly renovated to offer modern open-plan living with period features including attractive exposed beams. Surrounded by wooded hills and beautiful mountain scenery, the property provides visitors with stunning views of the surrounding Welsh landscape. There is also a garden area in which visitors can enjoy al fresco dining, reached via French windows from the main living area.


A warm welcome with friendly owners, there was an honest description of the cottage, which exceeded our expectations. The owner obviously took great pride in their business.
Mr Edwards

Stayed in this cottage for a week at the start of June as a party of 4 adults and a 7-month old baby. Cottage is well tucked away down a long winding lane, so perfect for those seeking some peace and quiet. The cottage is spacious and well laid-out, with plenty of space for stuff! The kitchen has loads of cutlery/crockery/pots/pans etc., a microwave and cooker with hob, and a fridge, but no washing machine. We were initially worried about this, but as it turns out there was not a problem, and there is a launderette in the town centre if needs be. Views are stunning from the living room and kitchen. Barbecue etc are also all provided with plenty of outdoor seating if the weather permits. There is parking for one car next to the cottage and space off the road nearby for further parking. Owners are friendly and helpful and live just across the road. Books/maps etc all in the cottage for nearby walks, and there are some lovely walks around the cottage if you don't want to travel far, or it is only 20minutes to the coast. All in all a lovely cottage and would highly recommend.

Owl Cottage in Dolgellau, Wales is a perfect place to stay.
Mrs Horney

The cottage is set in a peaceful and relaxing area with beautiful scenery. It is very clean and comfortable and a lovely area for walking (especially with a dog). The town of Dolgellau is close by and is a very pretty market town with good eating places, especially the Royal Ship which is also dog friendly. Our second visit to Owl Cottage and we thoroughly recommend it.
Mr Elvin

The location of the cottage was outstanding - what a view from the garden!
