National Trust Holiday Cottage

Perched up on the hillside with great views out over the valley, this delightful 17th-century cottage, now owned by the National Trust, is situated on Dolobran Farm, a working farm. With a fascinating history, this property is approached on foot across a field with livestock, so make sure you bring stout footwear and a torch! Beautifully restored, it has many character features, including low doorways and sloping ceilings. It is just 1½ miles to the pretty village of Dinas Mawddwy with a welcoming village pub. From here there is a delightful drive over the mountains to Lake Vyrnwy. In the other direction is the market town of Dolgellau which offers a choice of eateries, and it is only a short distance further to the sandy beaches at Fairbourne or Barmouth, which is also connected to Dolgellau by the Mawddach Trail which runs along the trackbed of an old railway line. Shop 8 miles, pub and restaurant 5 miles.
