We really enjoyed our stay, it is a lovely cottage and the owner is a lovely lady. Peaceful dog friendly cottage in beautiful surroundings and lovely mountain views, close to beautiful walks and beaches. We have booked with Best of Wales 3 times and each time the service from the team has been excellent, we will definitely book again.

This cottage is in such a beautiful location, we're going to have to come back! My partner and I took our 2 labs on a walking holiday, based in this area. The cottage itself was lovely, and suited our needs perfectly. The location is key, with the closest walk, the Torrent Walk, being literally a few hundred metres away. Also go for the Precipice Walk and try to find the Blue Lake. Or you go for a flat walk to Barmouth, from Dolgellau. This cottage ticked all our boxes, and meant I had a really relaxed and enjoyable week away, and so did my partner and the dogs. Thanks.

This is our second visit to this property. Cae Merllen is in a lovely location with mountain views, close to lovely walks and beaches. Big choice of dog friendly holiday cottages on the Best of Wales website, easy to use website and email directions to cottage location with ideas of places to visit, even common phrases to use in Welsh. Will definitely use Best of Wales cottages again.

We had a lovely welcome from Gwennan on our arrival, the cottage was well equipped, homely and fitted what we required perfectly! We thoroughly enjoyed our visits to the Zip World attractions and spent our Saturday climbing Snowdon. The town of Dolgellau is only five minutes away and is quite quaint as was the larger town of Machynlleth.

Excellent location. Character cottage with a homely feel. Lovely owner and can't forget Carlo the dog!! Highly recommended this property. Walk from Dolgellau to Barmouth is a great day out. Visits to the many narrow gauge railways is highly recommended.
