Accommodation in the heart of Dolgellau, Snowdonia

Located right in the centre of the small historic town of Dolgellau, Plas Isa provides relaxed, cosy accommodation aimed at independent travellers whether they be individuals, couples, families or small groups.

The building is Grade II listed and has 5 spacious bedrooms with 3-5 beds per room – all private rooms, no dormitories. The rooms have a selection of bunks and single beds. The singles can be amalgamated to make super king-sized doubles for couples. Your bed will be fully made, ready to dive straight in, all bedding provided. There are ample bathrooms & toilets throughout the house. When possible, we will allocate one bathroom per bedroom, but we cannot guarantee this for every booking. In the morning, a complimentary continental style breakfast is served in the large dining room. The lounge is a good room to relax with a good book, listen to your favourite music or to watch TV. The self-catering kitchen is open for everyone who prefers to cook their own meal. However, there is a good choice of pubs and restaurants within walking distance, you might want to try.

Great stop for walkers on the Snowdonia Way, Cambrian Way or those exploring the endless other walking trails in the area plus Cadair Idris is close by. The Mawddach Trail starts from the backdoor - guests can either walk or cycle the 9 miles to Barmouth, along the estuary. For mountain bikers and cyclists (Lon Las Cymru route) bike storage for 6-8 bikes is available – please let us know at time of booking if you wish to use this.
