Discover Britain Magazine - May, 2014
Located on Love Lane, an apt location for a romantic five-star hotel, this award-winning Edwardian accommodation offers every mod con, from honesty bar to hot tub!

Daily Telegraph - April, 2014
It may be a remote market town in the Snowdonia National Park but Dolgellau, at the foot of Cader Idris, is packed with great restaurants. It is also home to the six-bedroom Ffynnon, a friendly little B&B with boutique-hotel leanings in a converted Victorian rectory, run by Debra Harris and Steve Holt.

Each fresh, contemporary bedroom has its own indulgences, such as a roll-top bath or huge gothic mahogany bed, and there is even an outdoor hot tub. Home-cooked breakfast is served in the dining room and there is also a comfy drawing room with an honesty bar and a help-yourself Butler's Pantry.

Striking out, there are countless walks to choose from. A five minute stroll from the house, for example, is the pleasingly easy none-mile Mawddach Trail, along an old railway line. The area is littered with bluebell woods such as Coed y Brenin (the King's Forest), famed for its cycling trails and walks, which is a four mile drive away.
