Just right for a couple to enjoy walking, climbing, touring or simply relax, this cosy cottage sleeps two people in a king-size double bedroom.

This semi detached 18th century barn conversion occupies a wonderfully rural mountainside location, on a working sheep farm two miles from Dolgellau, in Snowdonia. Offering comfortable, welcoming accommodation set over the ground floor, this cottage has a king-size double bedroom, a shower room, and an open plan living area with kitchen, dining area and sitting area. There is wonderful mountain scenery all around the cottage, which is ideally placed for enjoying walking, climbing or discovering the castles, beaches and landscapes of the area.


Great location at the base of Cadair Idris
We spent a week here. It's a great location on a farm on the lower reaches of Cadair Idris above Dolgellau. The owner, Rhys, lives next door and was very helpful. We stored our bikes in his garage. The summit is walkable direct from the cottage and I went on several bike rides with stunning views that all ended with the steep climb back to the cottage. It's a a semi working farm and I wouldn't describe it as plush but it's all perfectly serviceable and the location is what makes it. If you're expecting hot tubs and manicured lawns then this is not the right place for you. Dolgellau is a pleasant little town with several pubs, two supermarkets and a central food shop plus a bike shop and a few other things. Overall we were very happy.

Comfortable cottage in a tranquil location within walking distance of Cader Idris
A converted barn attached to the main property that provides a warm and comfortable base to explore the region from. Its isolated location provides for peaceful relaxation, especially sat in the private garden area next to the gently flowing stream. It is possible to ascend Cader Idris by a little-used (and therefore; quiet) route directly from the cottage. Starting points for other high-level hikes and lower-level walks are very close-by. Finally, the warm welcome and helpful guidance make a warm start to the holiday. Ideal location, great value for money.

wow what a beautiful place to stay
we were looking for a short break away from it all and we found the perfect place. The first drive up the lanes to Maes Coch was a little little hairy but you soon get used to it. We arrived after a long journey and at once loved what we saw. The lovely home made fruit cake and everything to make a cuppa were a lovely welcome and very much appreciated. The views all around the cottage are breathtaking, it is the perfect place for peace and quiet with Dolgelleau only a couple of miles away, the Eurospar Supermarket was very useful and there are also a good choice of eating places, takeaways and the usual local butchers greengrocers and coffee shops. You can find just about anything you need without going any further. We can highly recommend The Gatehouse Steakhouse and the Lemongrass resturants.Although the weather was unfortunately mostly overcast or raining we found plenty to do and see and found the incredible sights of North Wales breathtaking. Sandra and Reece are always happy to advise and point you in the direction of anything you would like to see and there is a good supply of information leaflets available in the cottage. This lovely cottage is clean comfortable and and just about anything you could need is supplied, including lots of little extra touches like flask and tupperware boxes perfect for packing a picnic, reading books and local history info. We had a wonderful time and particularly loved the waterfalls at Ganllwyd and the drive up to Gregennan. First visit to Wales and Maes Cotch Cottage but we most deffinately hope to be able to return in ther near future. A big thankyou to you all for making our all too short stay such a memorable break.

We particularly liked the peace & tranquillity of Maes Coch Cottage. We also liked the friendliness and helpfulness of the owners.
Mrs Gregory

We had peace and tranquillity in a nice cosy cottage. The cottage was warm and comfortable, there was no need to use the car except for getting supplies. There was walking access directly onto the many footpaths on and around Cadair Idris, and easy access to cycle routes.
