About Gary Stevenson
I live with my partner and two cairn terriers in a rural area of the Staffordshire Moorlands which boarders the Peak National Park and Derbyshire. We both have demanding and challenging careers and try our best to spend as much time in Dolgellau to escape the stresses and strains that work throws at us, we find Snowdonia is the perfect place to reflect, relax and re-charge ourselves.
Gary Stevenson purchased this Cottage in 2013
Why Gary Stevenson chose Dolgellau
We love to spend time in the Snowdonia National Park and find that Dolgellau provides us with the perfect central location to all our favourite places. Living In the Staffordshire Moorlands offers us challenging and diverse landscapes but the only thing missing is the sea and the amazing beaches of North Wales have always had a drawing magnetism for us.
What makes this Cottage unique
One of the reasons for choosing Dolgellau as our second home was due to the fact that we have the convenience of the towns amenities to include several restuarants and bars, individual and independent shops and a real sense of community. Our cottage is a real hideaway retreat as it is tucked away within a private courtyard and if you didn't now it was there you would probably walk on by and miss it. We feel that we have the best of both worlds here; peaceful and private yet with a few minutes walk to the town centre... We love it here and hope to retire to Dolgellau in the near future. If you would like to discuss your booking with me directly then you can request my mobile contact number by calling Owners Direct on the following number: 02088 271998.

Dolgellau: picture-postcard cottages and mountains
I was very impressed with our old Welsh stone cottage, which has a lovely blend of tradition and modernity. It has lots of character - thick exposed beams and crooked walls - but is also beautifully appointed. The modern furnishings are of excellent quality and beautifully colour co-ordinated. I particularly liked the bathroom and kitchen, but would have appreciated instructions for how to use the hob (had to ask Google!)
Dolgellau is a picture-postcard village of stone cottages and buildings surrounded by spectacular mountains and hills. My husband and I went for several long walks in the hills, and sometimes wondered if we should have been walking across fields so near to the sheep - they didn’t seem to mind! We went to Barmouth one day, which was only about fifteen minutes’ drive away. That is also a lovely town. We walked across the bridge and ate fish and chips by the harbour.
We enjoyed our stay and have lots of great memories and photos. We would stay here again and recommend Ivy Court Cottage to friends.
Thank you so much for your review of Ivy Court Cottage. It certainly sounds like you enjoyed your stay and that you made the most of your time in Dolgellau and Snowdonia. It’s really nice to receive such positive feedback. I have printed out the instructions for the hob and a copy is now kept in the kitchen, so thank you for pointing that out to me. I would happily welcome you back to Ivy Court Cottage in the future. Thank you again for your custom and I hope to hear from you soon, kind regards Gary
Very cosy situated close to everything milk tea coffe on hand
Enjoyed our stay in the main problem we had was nothing to do with property some noisy neighbours
Hi Paul and Kerry, thank you for taking the time to review Ivy Court Cottage, it was lovely having you stay and although you loved the cottage I can only apologise for the argument between the other holiday makers at the cottage opposite to our property. I called to speak to them on Sunday and they did apologise. I look forward to seeing you again in the future. Kind regards Gary
Lovely cosy cottage
We had a lovely stay, beautiful cottage with everything we needed very clean and in a great location. Thank you so much would highly recommend. Once we dropped off our bags we drove straight up the hill lots of parking 5 to 8 minutes walk away from the cottage and 5 minutes walk from hotels, restaurants and local pubs. Great walks straight from the front door.

Charming comfortable cottage in lovely Dolgellau
The cottage is very well equipped and comfortable and has been renovated to a high standard. There is everything you need to enjoy your stay and it was spotlessly clean. We had a lovely week (despite the weather!). The location of the cottage is ideal with just a short walk into town. We always managed to find a parking place. We would love to return in the autumn as I am sure the cottage would be very warm and cosy.
Thank you for taking the time I’m leaving us a five star review! We are so very pleased that you enjoyed your time in Dolgellau and that Ivy Court Cottage suited your needs and provided you with all the things you needed to make it your own! Kind regards Gary
Convenient and comfortable
The cottage is tucked away in a quiet corner of Dolgellau but within a couple of minutes of the shops and restaurants. The cottage is tastefully furnished and mostly comfortable although I found the bed to be a bit hard for my taste. The shower is brilliant! The only problems we found were that the skylight in the bedroom doesn't have a blind and we were woken at dawn every day with the light streaming in. The other problem was that there are no instructions for anything and the hob took a bit of working out, in fact we had to google it. It would be helpful to have the instructions there. The sofa is very comfortable, there is free wi fi, the TV is a good one and the kitchen is fairly well equiped. Although there is no parking imediately outside the property (except for unloading) we always found somewhere free to park within a couple of minutes walk. I think it would be lovely to stay in winter - it is really cosy and there is a lovely logburner and lots of soft blankets dotted around.
Dear Annie, thank you for leaving such a lovely review. I’m so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Ivy Court Cottage and of course you would be welcome to return in the winter months for a cosy break! I take note of your comment regarding the instructions for the hob and will address this issue, thanks for pointing it out to me. I only wish the mattress could be addressed so easily! We provide an orthopaedic mattress in the hope that it meets the majority of our guests needs by offering maximum support. I look forward to welcoming your return trip to Dolgellau. Take care Gary
