Our second stay at Y Stablau which we thoroughly enjoyed. It is very peaceful with only sheep and newborn lambs for company, yet near Barmouth and within easy reach of Snowdonia and the Llyn Peninsular. We appreciated the recommendation of The Mermaid in Barmouth for fish and chips. So delicious we had it twice. Also the Minymor Hotel for Sunday lunch and curry night on a Friday. The precipice walk near Dolgellau is a must do. We hope to return.

We liked it.Could have done with a clothes airer and more glasses as some were broken in the cupboard.It was clean and well stocked with wood for the fire and kindling and the fire was ready to light.The owner was helpful when I phoned him prior to arrival.I was also not aware that there would not be towels provided though this may be an oversight on my part.I would have left the place a little cleaner if a vacuum cleaner had been provided.Our only negatives would be the wi-fi being marginal and the parental lock on sky preventing us from watching programs that we had recorded.This was very annoying.Beautiful place.
