  • From your doorstep walk up to Arthog Waterfalls, along the Mawddach Trail, or over to Barmouth on the railway bridge. Explore sandy beaches, mountains, nature reserves, and stunning coastlines right from your doorstep. 
  • Just 6 miles from Dolgellau, this traditional town offers some contemporary options for evenings out, drop into the popular 'Dylanwad Da wine bar' for some wine tasting and tapas, explore the ancient streets and discover for yourselves the friendly welcome in the great cafe's, pubs, restaurants, and bakeries.
  • The spacious interior provides an exceptional opportunity for a great stay on the Welsh coast. Backed by mature woodlands and directly overlooking the Mawddach estuary and mountains beyond, locations don't get much better than this for exploring the most stunning scenery in North Wales.

Stunning, absolutely stunning. Big cottage built into the hillside with the most fantastic views from the very large windows across the whole of the large upstairs windows. Everything supplied that you need and could think of.

Awel Deg was a beautiful modern barn conversion. Set in a gorgeous country yet coastal setting, near the estuary. Stunning

Beautiful cottage, very well equipped and importantly lots of space for outdoor stuff, walking boots etc. Location also really good, easy access to cycle track and lots of footpaths to explore.Couple of suggestions- more tea towels and washing up stuff would have been handy, also a broom for sweeping up in the kitchen, and some bath mats. Otherwise nothing missing at all. Thank you!

About the Area

If you would like more information on the local area, please call us on 01348 837871 to speak to one of our friendly team.

Awel Deg is located on the south bank of the Mawddach Estuary. This part of southern Snowdonia has a spectacular landscape making it a walkers paradise. Less crowded than the slopes of Snowdon, the mountains in this part of the national park provide a real opportunity to explore the true wilderness of Wales.

From the door

  • The popular walk and cycle path the Mawddach trail is right outside this holiday cottage, join the path and go over to Barmouth via the bridge or into Dolgellau passing and the George III pub at Penmaenpool.


  • A short 10-minute drive from Arthog will get you into Dolgellau. Steeped in welsh history the town hosts a farmers market and is home to some delightful shops, cafes and pubs. It has retained its traditional market town feel and is a gem in the Snowdonia National Park. TH Roberts is perfect for coffee and cakes; all homemade. Tafarn Y Gader Tapas has great reviews and certainly a place to visit for dinner and wine is Dylanwad Da, a very nice wine bar/coffee bar with the best Welsh Rarebit in wales! I know I've had quite a few.

Crafts and more

  • Corris, another nearby village, has the well known 'Centre for Alternative Technology' as well as a small craft village and 'King Arthurs Labyrinth', an underground tour is certain to capture a child's imagination.


  • The popular seaside towns of Aberdyfi and Towyn and Barmouth are a short drive away. All have really long sandy beaches with a good choice of cafes and pubs on the seafronts.
  • The blue flag beach nearby at Fairbourne makes for a great beach day and is especially good for watersports such as windsurfing and sailing. The famous Fairbourne Narrow Gauge Steam Railway still runs daily and you can take the train the headland and then the ferry over to Barmouth in the summer months.
  • Barmouth has all the trappings of a traditional seaside town, there is a bigger range of shops here and some great independents where you can pick up some really great local items. There is of course the harbour and prom complete with a fairground for those looking for a colourful thrill.

Biking at Coed y Brenin

  • Coed Y Brenin is an amazing day out where you'll find six mountain bike trails running alongside rivers and walking trails, there is certainly something for everyone and all abilities.


  • Closer to home just outside Dolgellau, there are some fabulous walks, The Torrent Walk, (don't forget your camera as its full of surprises) and the two Precipice walks, the old and the new, both equally stunning.

The cottage is located in the foothills of Cadair Idris and Gregennan Lakes, which need little introduction if you're familiar with them already. They are truly outstanding.


  • Snowdonia of course is well known for its adventure activities. 20 mins East will bring you to Bala where you can visit the National Whitewater Centre, or Llyn Tegid where there are plenty of watersports you can enjoy including sailing, windsurfing, kayaking etc. If canyoning is more your thing, there are lots of local operators that offer this.

The more world-famous Portmeirion Village, Zip World, and Surf Snowdonia are also within reach.

Talyllyn Railway

  • A thoroughly enjoyable attraction with a small museum and cafe and the worlds first preserved railway! The steam train starts on the coast at Tywyn, meandering through the foothills of Cader Idris to Dolgoch Falls, Abergynolwyn and Nant Gwernol - some of Wales' finest countryside. The train clings to the hillside as it passes through woodland and over ravines, and takes about an hour each way.
