Beautiful Barn Conversion On The Outskirts of Dolgellau | Coed Stable

Near Pub

Coed Stable is a beautiful barn conversion on the outskirts of Dolgellau. Sleeping two, it is set in a rural location with stunning views. Only a 5 minute drive outside of Dolgellau, Coed Stable offers that ‘get away from it all’ factor whilst being well situated to access the other, many beautiful parts of Eryri (Snowdonia).

Southern Eryri is a very popular place for those who enjoy walking as it offers a stunning and dramatic landscape but without the crowds that Snowdon itself attracts. Dolgellau sits at the foot of Cader Idris and is a traditional market town with cobbled streets and a good selection of cafes and restaurants to relax and recoup in after a day out in and around Eryri.

Coed Stable is part of a traditional stone barn, converted to a very high spec. The down stairs is an open plan kitchen, diner and sitting room. Slate floor tiles with underfloor heating give a modern feel to the room while the neutral colours of the sofas and soft furnishings bring in the warmth. The kitchen area with the cream coloured units and wooden countertop are all beautifully finished.

The downstairs is light and airy with french windows behind the dining area which open out into a small private courtyard area with climbing roses, teak furniture with cushions and parasol which will be a perfect place to relax on a summers evening.

Upstairs is a double room with an apex ceiling and bathroom. The bedroom is very light and airy and simply decorated in white and cream but still offering that cosy feeling. Next to the bedroom is a lovely, modern bathroom with shower over bath, WC and washbasin.

The outside courtyard is accessed via the french doors in the living room, is a great outside space with table and chairs. But when you’re ready to explore, a small woodland area above the cottage leads onto open country criss crossed with many footpaths some of which will lead you right up to the summit of Cader Idris. If you want to add a wild swim into the mix, on your way down, take the route via Llyn Cau. On a summers evening you can walk to nearby Crossfoxes Pub which is less than a mile away.

Dolgellau is a traditional market town in the Parc Cenedlaethol Eryri (Snowdonia National Park). With lots of lovely cafes and restaurants, it is a great place to go and while away an afternoon – 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 Dylan Wad a very nice wine bar/coffee bar is always a winner. The popular walk and cycle path the Mawddach trail and the George III pub.

Walks from the cottage include The Torrent Walk and the foothills of Cadair Idris. Coed Y Brenin Mountain bike centre is 10 minutes drive – an amazing day out where they have 6 mountain bike trails alongside running and walking trails – something for everyone and all abilities.

20 minutes West will bring you to Barmouth where you will enjoy the blue flag beaches and all the trappings of a traditional seaside town - there is a bigger range of shops here; great independents where you can pick up some really great items. There is of course the harbour and prom complete with a fairground.

35 mins South will take you to the sailing village of Aberdovey where again, a great way to spend the day with nice cafes and pubs to eat and drink.

Eryri 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 are also within reach.

Paula Heseltine

Amazing beautiful location and cottage was perfect everything catered for we are looking forward to returning next year

Vicky Scotcher

We enjoyed our stay in the cottage. It was very comfortable with everything we needed. It was bit smaller than I had expected from the photographs but was actually fine. Very nicely finished to a high standard.

The only thing I would say is we used the parking area but did find it awkward to turn round in the dark.

Simon Lock

A fantastic cottage with really high quality facilities in a location that is totally silent. Wonderful. Great location for walking/ swimming and a local Parkrun one mile away. Lots to do in the area and despite its peace and tranquility the cottage is one mile from a main road.

Paula Heseltine

We had the most amazing stay the cottage was beautiful and spotlessly clean set in peaceful surroundings cannot wait to return.


Fantastic property in very quiet location, 25 minutes walk into Dolgellau and also 20 minutes walk in other direction to local pub. The property is spotlessly clean, very warm and comfortable. Bed very comfy, excellent quality linen and well equipped kitchen. Barbara, the owner, was very welcoming and helpful. Great walks directly from the property and bike ride to beach.

Jane and Lloyd

Janet Lister

Very comfortable, spotlessly clean and well-equipped cottage in a nice quiet but accessible location. Lovely view from the courtyard garden. Good walks from the cottage including the lower slopes of Cadair Idris and a circular route including the Torrent Walk. We also enjoyed the Precipice Walk a few of miles the other side of Dolgellau, food and craft shops in Harlech and visits to Powis Castle and the Gregynog Estate.

Beautiful cottage in tranquil scenic surroundings. Clean, modern & comfortable. Dioni have been very efficient & understanding in post- poning our booking twice & transferring to a different property on the third occasion. Very impressed. Would use Dioni again. Properties all look to be of a high standard.

My wife and I spent a week (beginning 25/6/22) at Coed Stable. We chose this property because we were looking for somewhere in the Dolgellau area that was suitable for a couple that was clean, attractive and well equipped (the property, not the couple). All the boxes we were looking for were well & truly ticked and Coed Stable more than suited our needs, even down to the outdoor space with views over southern Snowdonia. The only advice I might give to prospective holiday makers is to be vigilant on the 1.5 mile approach road leading to the property has there are some blind bends and narrow stretches – that said, in the whole week I only encountered 3 or 4 oncoming vehicles, the road was very quiet.
All things considered, I would recommend Coed Stables for it’s quiet location and its pleasant ambience – a really nice cottage.
