Traditional stone cottage with hillside garden surrounded by ancient woodland and sheep fields, the perfect rural retreat located in Snowdonia National Park above the Mawddach Estuary with its renowned scenery and walks.

Discover the spectacular beauty of the Snowdonia National Park when you stay at this homely, three-bedroom cottage at Arthog, 6.5 miles from Dolgellau in North Wales. Up to three guests are welcome at the traditional Welsh cottage, which dates back to the 1600s. One happy hound can also join you for exhilarating walks beside the Mawddach Estuary and long, lazy afternoons in the delightful garden, with far-reaching views over the water.

Climb the footpath up the hill, carrying your luggage as you go, to reach this character-filled, stone hideaway. Let yourselves in to discover an open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner with a wealth of original features. Put the kettle on while you get settled then return to the kitchen area to make dinner and sit round the table together. Light the wood burner afterwards then relax on the comfortable seating in front of the TV or with a book. Take a few steps down from the kitchen to the family bathroom then climb the boat steps up to a single bedroom on the mezzanine level. Venture up to the first floor via the narrow, steep stairs to discover a king-size bedroom leading on to the other single bedroom. Because of the age of this cottage, some areas have limited headspace. Enjoy breakfast out in the garden on bright mornings and light the BBQ on warm evenings. There’s parking less than 100m from the property.

Follow footpaths from Arthog taking you past a number of pretty waterfalls. Pick up the Mawddach Trail from the village. This 9.5-mile route is suitable for walking and cycling and follows a disused railway track along the southern edge of the stunning estuary. Visit Dolgellau to browse in the shops and dine out. For a day out at the seaside try Fairbourne Beach, 2.5 miles away.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

We had a lovely stay - thank you. Fantastic location, garden and view, and the (very) nearby beach is glorious and dog-friendly. Although we didnt take advantage of it, the folder of walks is amazing. Steps to the bedrooms are very steep, so this wouldnt suit someone with limited mobility. But its a wonderful house full of character.

Beautiful and quirky cottage with amazing views. The owners left so much useful information about walks etc which was great. You have to be relatively fit to get up to the cottage and also the steps to bedroom are very steep. Great stay.

We have just spent the most wonderful week in this stunning traditional cottage. Ty Coch is very well equipped and is in a fantastic position with great views from every window. The walk up to the cottage from the parking area requires a bit of effort but is well worth it, try to travel light if possible. There are walks & cycling straight from theRead more cottage. The Mawddach trail is 5 minutes away and takes you over the bridge to Barmouth or Dolgellau. Thanks for the provisions. Fantastic cottage! Hide

Lovely, characterful cottage in an excellent location. We did some fantastic walks straight from the door, and nearby. Great to be so close to the estuary, as well as mountains and woodland. It is a steepish, short walk up to the cottage, but well worth it! We would definitely like to return.

Lovely, extremely well-appointed cottage in a beautiful and secluded location. (As stated, there is a steep walk up to the cottage). Great walks directly from the house and many more further afield. Fairbourne beach at sunset an unexpected treat! We had fantastic week and would love to return.

The cottage was lovely, really cosy and full of character in a tucked away location with stunning views. It was exactly what we were hoping for and we felt at home straight away. The walking and cycling straight from the cottage was great and the owners had put together lots of info on recommended local walks and walks further away, as well as lotsRead more of guides and maps.
