Climb Cader Idris - and take in the views from the 'Giants Chair' then fill up on large breakfasts and home made cakes at the cafes in Dolgellau.

Walk or cycle along the Mawddach Trail taking in the beautiful views to the George III Inn at Penmaenpool (the old railway station) to sup a pint of local ale whilst overlooking the estuary and the old wooden toll bridge or take afternoon tea at the magnificent Penmaenuchaf Hall Hotel.

About Victoria Little & Sean Meagher

We (Victoria and Sean) moved here in 2014 after being drawn back time again by the fantastic mixture of local beaches; mountains and forests. Along with our Goldie - who thinks living here is 'dog heaven' we love to welcome guest to Tan Y Coed and share this fantatic part of Wales.

Victoria Little & Sean Meagher purchased this cottage in 2014

What makes this cottage unique

Tan y Coed has the most wonderful views from the upstairs windows. Spacious and airy - open plan living/ kitchen dining and a superb curved open ceiling - the house is deceptively large . With 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms- plus a handy games room - there is space for everyone to spread out and relax. Although we are not on a remote hillside the house feels calm and of course we have access to the fantastic Mawddach Trail - which means beaches are only a 2.5 mile walk or cycle - enough to build an appetite but not so far to need the car.

Perfectly equipped house in stunning surroundings

  • 5 of 5

Prior to our stay the communication was brilliant from Victoria and the welcome hamper on arrival was a lovely touch (including homemade bread to die for!) The house comfortably catered for 7 adults, a child and a couple of boisterous dogs. Ideal for those with dogs as little things had been considered making the stay hassle free.

The location is idyllic with a number of accessible surrounding walks. It’s a little bit of a walk from the house but stumbling across the ‘Blue lake’ was a great find.

We will all be returning!

Many thanks to Victoria for such a wonderful stay!

Absolutely stunning

  • 5 of 5

I was expecting our stay to be lovely, but it way surpassed all of expectations! The house is absolutely stunning, with incredible attention to detail. Far bigger van expected with fantastic views of the local surroundings. Victoria was so helpful before and during our stay, and the food in the welcome hamper is to die for. There’s so much to do in the local area I can absolutely recommend this as the perfect get away - would happily return at any opportunity!! Thank you so much!

Fabulous New Year Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for New Year 2017/18 as a family of 7 adults and a Jack Russell pup, and couldn’t have asked for a lovelier place to stay.

Very modern, clean and cosy and plenty of space for a large group. Really cosy with the wood burner between the kitchen/diner and the living area. Everything you need and can think of is there!

Victoria and Sean were very welcoming and on hand for any queries throughout our stay.

Beautiful views and lovely walks around the area and across the famous railway viaduct into the lovely seaside town of Barmouth. Or even just enjoying a cosy night in playing board games and watching TV.

Couldn’t have asked for a better way to bring in the New Year!
