It was springtime when we visited Dolcymerau. We turned right in Llanbedr, (there’s only one right turn in the village, so not even I could get confused there) and wound our way up towards the picturesque Cwm Nantcol.
The property is a large converted barn. Complete with lofted ceilings and ubiquitous exposed beams. There were 5 bedrooms in total sleeping a maximum of 8 plus a cot. Lesely and her daughter Claire have a number of properties that they let to holiday makers and their professionalism was obvious. Spotlessly clean and tidy and equipped with everything you could want. Washing machine, dishwasher, wide screen TV, DVD etc.
Claire used to work in the fashion business and would admit to being quite extrovert, so none of your standard beige décor here. Crammed with interesting furniture and exotic cushions Dolcymerau was a pleasing contrast to the customary beige walls and Ikea fittings we usually see.
The lounge was luxurious and comfortable with its cast iron stove and big soft sofas. The kitchen, the original dairy, was newly fitted, spacious and well equipped. One of my favorite bits however, was the french doors leading off our bedroom. They overlooked a small field. There was a lake at the far end and a woodland area surrounding that. It was like having a 24 hour nature documentary playing outside your window. Outside there was a nice lawned area with garden seating and BBQ.
Llanbedr itself was the perfect little village. The river Artro winds its way past two pubs, a corner store, butchers shop and post office. The area itself is famous for shell island and the miles and miles of sandy beaches to either side. Harlech, 4 miles to the north boasts an international links golf course as well as it’s famous castle. And the mountains behind us offered even the most enthusiastic of walkers endless options right from our doorstep. The popular seaside town of Barmouth is 6 miles to the south.
