Friendly welcome and fantastic hosts
I had a lovely stay at Ivy House, which is located in the heart of Dogellau. The room was comfortable and good value for the price, although the rest of the property looked a little sad and worn. The breakfast every morning was great -- it set me up for a day of walking the North Wales hills and mountains nicely. The owner was extremely helpful about recommending local beauty spots and trails, which was also much appreciated, and my dogs were made to feel welcome too. Parking was a bit of a problem during the day, but again, with the owner's help, a solution was found.
