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.


The cottage was great, very roomy and bright. The owner was very helpful and accommodating in storing our bikes for us. I highly recommend this cottage!

Lovely place to stay: comfortable, well equipped, great location and nice views
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 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
