This characterful cottage is in the heart of Dolgellau, in Snowdonia National Park, North Wales. The cosy cottage is in a quiet courtyard, close to the many places to eat, drink and shop in historic Dolgellau.

The little stone cottage sleeps 3 in 2 bedrooms. It has been stylishly refurbished with a sparkling new bathroom and kitchen. Located in a peaceful and unspoilt area of Snowdonia National Park, making this Snowdonia holiday cottage convenient, comfortable town base for couples, friends or a small family.

Dolgellau (pronounced a little like “Dol-geth-lie”) is a traditional Welsh market town. Our holiday cottage Dolgellau is just off the main square in a quiet courtyard. You are just a few steps away from cafes, excellent restaurants and welcoming pubs. There are many walks from your door into the spectacular mountain landscape of Cader Idris or the scenic Mawddach Estuary Trail. The beaches of Fairbourne and Barmouth are a short drive away.

Isfryn (pronounced “Is-vrin”) Cottage in Dolgellau is managed by John and Sarah and owned by John’s Dad Peter, a retired art and craft teacher. You’ll see some of the attractive ceramics Peter made on the colourful Welsh dresser and around the house.


The Victorian cottage is cosy and compact with colourful vintage touches, period features and a new kitchen and bathroom. Walk in through a small room with a dining table and chairs. Make yourself at home in a comfortable arm chair and plan your days out with the local maps provided. There is central heating for instant warmth in every room. To the right is a snug lounge with a sofa and easy chair. If you’re not popping into town to eat out, the large digital TV means you can relax after a day exploring and log into your Netflix or the i-Player. There’s good Wi-Fi too if you need to stay connected.

The modern kitchen is well equipped with a dishwasher, fridge, full sized oven with electric hob, washing machine and tumble dryer. There’s also a microwave, a cafetière and food mixer. Whether you’re preparing a lazy breakfast, picnic lunch or special meal you’ll find all the cooking utensils you need. The bathroom is on the ground floor with a bath and overhead rain shower.

A steep and narrow flight of stairs leads to 2 bedrooms. The double bedroom has a bay window looking across the slate rooftops of Dolgellau to the surrounding hills. The double bed has a deep mattress and crisp cotton bed linen. There are upcycled bedside tables and lights on each side of the bed. The second bedroom has one single bed and plenty of storage space. The large window looks across Listed stone buildings opposite and fills the room with plenty of light, making this the perfect self catering Dolgellau option!

Who is the cottage suitable for?

Couples, friends or families with one child who wish to be in the heart of Dolgellau. Guests with children should note there is a door but no stair gate between the bedrooms and the steep stairs. People with mobility issues may find these stairs between the bedrooms and downstairs bathroom challenging. There are 11 steps and the stairs have a bit of a twist at the bottom. There is a hand rail. For this reason, we do not recommend the cottage for families with toddlers or those who find stairs a challenge. There’s a stone seat outside the front door to enjoy watching the world go by, but no outdoor space, which is why we regret this cottage is not dog friendly.

Children welcome
