Isallt Bach is a dog-friendly detached farmhouse in a remote rural setting. Based on the owner’s 200-acre working mountain farm, this is the perfect retreat for dog owners needing a break.

Up to two well-behaved dogs are welcome, and there is off-road parking available for two cars.


The ground floor has a beautifully renovated flagstone floor throughout, wooden beams and exposed stone walls in places. Oil central heating and a wood burner keep this cottage warm whatever the weather. Fuel and power are included in the rent.

Guests can relax in the cosy sitting room, complete with inglenook fireplace into which is set a wood burner. There is also a dining area where you can enjoy an intimate dinner.

The spacious kitchen has a dining table and chairs, and all mod cons: oven, microwave, fridge freezer, dishwasher and washing machine.

There are two bedrooms, both of which have exposed beams: a king-size double and a twin, the latter boasting a cast-iron fireplace (decorative only). The ample bathroom is stunning, with a free-standing roll top bath and wooden floors, all decorated to a high standard. Bed linen and towels are included in the rent. The private water supply is tested each year.

This property is just 400 yards from another holiday cottage, they can be booked together and sleep 10 people in total.


The cottage has an enclosed garden with furniture, where you can enjoy sweeping views down the beautiful Cym Pennant Valley.

There is so much nature to enjoy right outside the cottage, with a good chance of sighting foxes, badgers and birds of prey. Due to the farm animals around, dogs must be kept on a lead when outside the cottage.

The cottage is in a secluded part of the countryside, so guests can enjoy rural solitude and tranquillity. Explore the wooded hillsides, river and ancient church. Brynkir Woollen Mill is nearby, where you can see the whole process from raw wool to the finished product.

When you are ready for venturing further, the harbour town of Porthmadog is six miles away, with its range of shops, pubs, restaurants and tea rooms. Sitting on the edge of Snowdonia National Park, the town is also a good place to catch the Ffestiniog Railway steam train, from which you will see some breath-taking scenery.

From Porthmadog, discover the nearby attractive village of Borth Y Gest with its cliffs and coves, and Portmeirion, nestled on its own private peninsula.
