A lovely 5* Victorian Country House boutique Bed & Breakfast near Dolgellau, North Wales.

Elegant cosy drawing room with doors to the gardens and conservatory. Furnished with an eclectic mix including Victorian and Edwardian antiques. All bedrooms are sumptuously decorated and have luxury bathrooms. There is ample seating around the gardens for you to enjoy and a woodland walk over the waterfall bridge and Victorian “pool”. Enjoy the water from its own private water, supplied by its own natural spring. Afon Rhaiadr Country House B&B – loosely translates to ‘house by the river and waterfall’ and uses an old spelling of Rhaeadr (waterfall). You may find it easier to pronounce it as ‘Avon Rayader’. So sorry but as the B&B is not set up for little ones they will not be able to accompany you on your breakaway.
Treat yourselves to Afternoon Tea or a picnic in the garden /forest and listen to the waterfall and birds going about their busy day – see our dining page for more details.
There are many places to visit in Snowdonia with Portmeirion village (famous for the TV series The Prisoner) and the Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railway on our doorstep.
