This is by far the best cottage and location that we have ever stayed in. The weather has been perfect and seen so many spectacular views of a lovely country.

Mr. Eastaff.

Thank you for providing an amazing home for the week. We are very fussy about our holidays, but this beautiful,clean,well maintained house would certainly entice us back. If there was WiFi, it would actually be the BEST by far!! See you again.

Mr & Mrs Michaela

This place is magic! A perfect warm and cosy haven in the cold of the New Year. A wonderful welcome here and the facilities are perfect. Wonderful views and perfect surroundings made it extra special. We will certainly be back!

The Hodgeson family

Wow, beautiful cottage and views, everything a holiday should be. Fantastic days out and relaxing days in. Over too soon, we'll definately be back.

Adey family.

Our first visit to Pandy Bach and this part of Wales. Everything has exceeded our expectations. Pandy Bach really has the 'wow' factor. We are already planning our return visit. We've had two weeks of bliss. Thank you.

Mr & Mrs Edwards.

We have had a fantastic time. What a beautiful property! We have loved every minute of our stay. The views and location are fantastic. We have booked with Quality Cottages on numerous occasions, and this has been the best yet. We will definately be booking again.

McWilliams family

We have enjoyed a thoroughly pleasurable week here, from cows greeting us regularly, the owls soothing us and the red kites soaring overhead entertaining us. There are so many walks from the front door, or just a few minutes drive away. A genuine sense of peace is present at all times, we shall have to return to explore this unspoilt part of Wales.

M. Foreman

A wonderful week in a great spot. Bird watching on the doorstep, mountains, forests and glorious beaches all within easy reach. We've loved coming back to such a comfortable cottage. A great 'chilling' place.

Edwards family.

The pet friendly cottage is in a stunning location up in the hills-only 1.5 miles from the centre of town-but it feels as if you are miles away from civilisation. The views are absolutely beautiful. There are red kites by the dozen circling overhead and we even saw an osprey on the wing. There is a great family cycle trail (your dog can tag along too) called the Mawddach Trail, which starts at Dolgellau and goes alongside the estuary all the way to Fairbourne and Barmouth across the bridge. It's about 9 miles each way and flat-unlike Pembs!! You can walk from the cottage up the hill and into the forest and walk for miles off road - great for dogs and children. Cadair Idris is about 10 miles away and intrepid walkers can climb up - 5 hours there and back-but there are also easier walks for children and dogs around the base.
