A beautiful cottage in an idyllic setting

We had an absolutely perfect week long stay at this fantastic cottage in North Wales. It's location on a quiet lane right on the banks of the River Dovey just cannot be beaten if you are looking to get away from it all and immerse yourself in the beautiful Welsh countryside. The fully renovated cottage itself is very comfortable with a very well equipped kitchen and relaxing lounge. The beds were very comfortable and we slept very soundly. The views from the lounge, kitchen and bedrooms of the river and surrounding countryside are breathtaking. The wildlife living in the area is amazing with a huge variety of birds including Dippers, pheasants, Ospreys etc. We cannot wait to return to Pen Y Bont. Very highly recommended.

Little bit of peace and relaxation

Fantastic immaculate cottage, who cares about lack of TV signal? River at the moment is fascinating and loved the bridge further down. Loads of wildlife, too early in the year for salmon, but maybe one year we'll see some. The improvements which have been made, mainly the decking outside, are well done. Having breakfast and evening meals outside on the decking overlooking the river was a real treat. Fantastic views from inside anyway, so even if it's raining, the views are still as great. Central for touring mountains, sea and main towns which is a bonus, nothing is too distant for day trips. If you are looking for a proper relaxing place to stay, this is it. Thank you for making our stay so enjoyable.

Fantastic cottage!. Great views from the bedroom windows of the river and wildlife (kingfishers, pheasants, dippers, wagtails, leaping fish, herons and bats). Our son enjoyed paddling and raft building as well as bat watching in the evening. The cottage was just what we needed - perfectly placed for relaxing and a little bit of touring. The Brigands Inn is a must visit for Sunday lunch. Dolgellau was the nearest place for food shop and parkrun. Also handy for Snowdon and Blaenau Ffestiniog (slate mines and Bounce). We hope to visit again in the future.

An amazing place - Shangrila!

Visited Pen Y Bont from Friday 30th September to Friday 7th October 2016. The perfect place in every way! A well-equipped and very cosy cottage with wonderful views. Everything you need to settle in is made available to you - tea, coffee, etc. Beautiful location with the picturesque River, wildlife in abundance - especially pheasants! Great central location for many Snowdonia's attractions. Fantastic eateries especially The Red Lion and Cross Foxes. Also try the Tea Rooms in the local village - just lovely. Hope to visit again. Thank you.
