• About Dol-y-Bont

    Located between the Berwyn Mountains and the Hirnant Forest, just a short distance from the largest natural lake in Wales.

    Oil central heating, electricity, bed linen, towels and Wi-Fi included. Travel cot and highchair available on request. Tumble dryer available on owner’s caravan park (honesty box). Large, enclosed, lawned garden with patio, decked area and garden furniture. 2 dogs welcome, to be kept on a lead at all times (sheep country). Private parking for 3 cars. No smoking.

    This spacious, single storey, detached holiday property is in the little village of Penybontfawr in the Tanat Valley, a short distance from the Shropshire border and is adjacent to, but entirely separate from, the owner’s quiet, family run, static caravan park. There’s a lovely large lawned garden in which to relax, whilst the property itself has shades of the Mediterranean with archways and attractive tiled flooring. There are three good sized bedrooms, one of which opens onto a private decked area overlooking the garden. The delightful Welsh speaking owners offer a warm welcome, and the village centre is only a two minute stroll away, with a lovely local pub serving delicious food, and a small shop and post office.
    The Tanat Valley offers some great walks, and an unhurried way of life, where you can truly relax. Nearby is the famous Lake Vyrnwy with its huge Victorian dam, pretty waterfalls, RSPB bird hides and artisan cafés, the highest single drop waterfall in the UK is near Llanrhaeadr Ym Mochnant, and there are a number of country pubs serving real ales. Near the next village of Llangynog is tranquil Pennant Melangell church, well worth a visit, and the spectacular drive over the mountains brings you to Bala, which has Wales’ largest natural lake and the steam trains of the Bala Lake Railway running along the lake shore. To the south is Welshpool (also home to another of the ’Great Little Trains of Wales’), which has the restored canal as an added attraction, whilst over the border in Shropshire, the bustling and attractive market town of Oswestry has greater shopping opportunities. If you have adrenaline junkies in your party, no visit would be complete without a trip over to Blaenau Ffestiniog, 36 miles, to try out the world’s longest zip wire zone at Zip World, or the only trampoline nets and slide system you’ll find in an underground slate cavern at Bounce Below! Shop 200 yards, pub and restaurant 300 yards.

    Lovely property set in a peaceful setting with gardens looking out across the mountains. Great welcome pack and the house has everything you need for a holiday home, the hosts have definitely thought of everything to make you and your stay comfortable. Could not ask for more. The local amenities were the only thing that let it down and a car drive was essential to find decent walks, pub, shops and eateries.

    A really lovely cottage - spotlessly clean and very spacious ad comfortable. Only negative is that we would have preferred a dishwasher to the washing machine. Our hosts couldn't have made us more welcome and provided us with all the essentials to get us off to a good start. A very peaceful and relaxing location - pity there isn't a cafe, but the village store was very well stocked.

    We have had a great family holiday at Dol-y-bont. The bungalow is like a tardis- it’s got so much room and it’s been done really well. Everything feels luxurious - the king sized beds were really comfy, the lounge with its lovely big sofa was a great place to sit in together as a family. Our grandchildren made the most of the dry weather to play in the big, safe garden and we even managed to sit outside a few times on the bedroom sun trap decking area. All in all, Glyn and Marian should be proud of what they have done with their holiday cottage. We will definitely be returning!

    Lovely home from home - very spacious and comfortable beds, the owners have thought of everything from milk in the fridge, spare dog lead, local maps, yummy cake and fresh decor. Perfect for extended family and differing seasons with large garden and views to enjoy and efficient heating and comfort for colder days ! Quiet village location, with nice shop and pub.

    Stayed for a weekend for my mum's 70th birthday beginning of October,. Fabulous stay, bungalow had everything you needed and more ! Hosts were so friendly and welcoming. Surrounding area very pretty, little pub and corner shop just round the corner from bungalow, few miles further is a good sized Spar and nice chip shop. Would recommend and definitely would stay again. Fabulous waterfalls not to far away.

    Glyn & Marian are the most welcoming hosts. They met us on arrival and gave us a tour around the cottage whilst explaining how everything worked, a nice touch was a welcome basket with all you need for your first night. The cottage has everything you need for a pleasant relaxing stay. They have thought of literally everything in this beautiful cottage. It very well placed if you feel the need to visit the larger towns/ places of interest in the area & is a nice distance from Bala. Overall a very pleasant experience in a lovely part of the world. We will be returning again soon.

    Absolutely beautiful cottage. Hosts were extreamly welcoming and friendly and just so lovely. Wonderful area and surroundings. Would defiantly retutn again soon. My only constructive feedback is that it was a shame there was no dish washer and the lighting above the dining table was very inadequate. It was also a shame there were no supermarkets near by at all. There is a post office (with limited opening hours) walking distance and a spar a 7 minute walk away. If you are looking to relax in an idyllic location with a calming feel and lots of space I would 100% recommend stating at this amazing place. Even my kitten had a wonderful time.
