Top 5 Holiday Cottages In Dolgellau

Published on 1 Sep 2022 by Amy Greenwood

It’s the perfect base for foodies who like their mountains with a bit of heritage and culture. Take a look around our top 5 holiday cottages in Dolgellau.

With more than 200 listed buildings and a beautiful Eryri (Snowdonia) backdrop, Dolgellau is a handsome market town. It has plenty going on all year round. It’s the perfect place to soak up a bit of local culture along with those soaring mountain landscapes. 

Sitting at the foot of Cader Idris on the beautiful Mawddach estuary in southern Eryri, Dolgellau is built on a slate, wool, and (perhaps more surprising) gold-rush heritage. The town is steeped in history, big landscapes, and plenty of character. 

This part of southern Eryri is renowned for its stunning landscapes and diverse and abundant wildlife. From cycling to hiking, there are plenty of places to explore. 

Dolgellau is a great destination for foodies too. There is a thriving local music and folk scene with regular live music at a number of the town’s pubs. An excellent farmer’s market comes to town on the third Sunday of every month.

Take a look around our top 5 holiday cottages in Dolgellau.
