Brithdir, Dolgellau, Snowdonia National Park, North Wales, Wales
We are now doing 4 nights at the price of 3 nights, midweek Monday to Friday, except the Summer where it is 4 nights for the price of 3.25 nights. The “Book your stay' form will get this wrong by 18% to 25% above the real rental price and we will correct this at invoice /Quote point. We are also doing a “no-Hot Tub price”. This works out on average to be £208 a week, or £109 on a short break reduction. Please see “Owners notes” at bottom of advert.

Featured in The Guardian’s “Britain’s Top 10 Cutest Log Cabins”, Milk Wood is one of our Dog Friendly Snowdonia retreats with indoor Sauna, woodburner and WiFi, hidden in a clearing on the edge of the woods on the slopes of the Wnion Valley, within an exclusive small complex of private log cabin homes. Imagine a cosy log cabin sheltered by the woods, in an idyllic countryside settin...

INFORMATION we require:

We need to know the full details of your party's makeup, children's’ ages, plus the age & breed of your dog(s), and any other details to help us ensure that your booking and price are correct.

Please remember, dogs carry a separate charge between £20 to £50 depending on breed and age. This is a flat fee, for the period. We do not take very large breeds, heavily moulting or nois...

About the neighbourhood
Brithdir Brithdir is a small village; alas, no shops now like many villages, but quiet and unspoiled. It’s like travelling into the past, and is set on a hill side with view of Cadair Idris and the valley below. The foot entrance to the Torrent Walk, also located in Brithdir, is 0.5 Mile from the lodges. Torrent Walk: One of Britain’s most spectacular riverside paths, The Torrent Walk, is within walking range of the cabin, running alongside the River Clywedog in Brithdir, and is some two-plus miles east of Dolgellau. The omnipresent ferns and mosses carpet the valley in rich emerald green. Massive boulders and tumbling waterfalls suggest the name of this walk. The walk hosts a detour to the ruins of an old iron ore furnace from the early 1700s, and the remains of an old wool mill and warehouse. The sound of the river can be sweetly powerful along the walk when there’s a strong flow after it has rained, and there are splendid views of the waterfalls at places along the path. Dolgellau Milk Wood Lodges is just a couple of miles from the ancient Welsh market town of Dolgellau, with its many listed buildings, and sits on the south bank of the Wnion River at the foot of Cadair Idris. You can spend time browsing the quaint local shops and enjoy a meal in one of the many good eateries in the town. It's the perfect base to explore this magical part of Southern Snowdonia, famous for its steam railways and castles. For outdoor enthusiasts, you will find white water rafting, sailing, fishing, mountain biking and great, scenic walks within easy travelling. For narrow gauge rail enthusiasts, you have plenty of choice. A 9-hole golf course also awaits in Dolgellau. Or, for those who just want to chill out, the private sauna, private outdoor Hot Tub, and cosy sitting room with wood burner are on tap at Milk Wood Lodges. Attractions: Walks, Cycle Trails and Other Activities It has been said that there is 'no better walk than from Barmouth to Dolgellau, other than from Dolgellau to Barmouth'. The views of the Snowdonia mountains sweeping down to the Mawddach Estuary are phenomenal. Penmaenpool and the Mawddach Estuary: The Mawddach Trail entryway is located in Dolgellau, and leads you along the beautiful Mawddach Estuary to Barmouth. The superb trail, used by both walkers and cyclists, is some eight miles long, and leads to the famous Barmouth Bridge, spanning the mouth of the Mawddach Estuary which opens out to Cardigan Bay. The bridge currently accommodates rail trains, cyclists and pedestrians. You can hire bikes at the local Dolgellau Cycle Shop in town, just minutes from the start of the Mawddach Trail. In addition, Penmaenpool is some two miles from Dolgellau. The Mawddach Trail passes through the hamlet of Penmaenpool, where there is located the Penmaenpool Pub. For nature lovers and bird spotters, there are two RSPB reserves in the Mawddach Valley, namely, the Arthog and the Coed Garth Gell. Coed Garth Gell offers superb scenery and beautiful walks through oak woodland. The Forest Park in Coed y Brenin is world renowned for its fantastic network of Mountain Bike Trails. There is a restaurant and cycle shop (sales, repair, and hire) onsite, and information on the many forest trails is to be found there at the Visitor Centre. Precipice Walk: In addition to the Torrent Walk located close to Milk Wood Lodges, there is also The Precipice walk, located some three miles northeast from Dolgellau. Although this is an upland walk, it is on fairly level ground. Starting in woodland, the walk soon opens up to splendid panoramas of Snowdonia, the Coed y Brenin Forest, the Rhinog mountains, the beautiful estuary valley of the Afon Mawddach and finally Cadair Idris itself. There is Horse riding in Fairbourne, near Arthog, including pony trekking on the beach. Bala nearby also has golf, as well as an excellent swimming pool and sailing on the lake. There is also angling, white water rafting, rock climbing, fishing and other popular sports within close range for visitors to Dolgellau. Barmouth Barmouth is a must to visit. The old seaside town meanders up steep narrow streets where you will find quaint cottages. The harbour area has lots of bars and cafes where you can enjoy local seafood and miles of beach. Small boat ferry trips are available from Barmouth across the mouth of the Mawddach River to Fairbourne from around Easter through the end of October.
