About Nant Las

Originally built as an observatory, you can watch stars and wildlife from this cosy cottage.

Pretty in pink, this romantic retreat hides among the trees in the Dolmelynllyn estate of Snowdonia. Originally built as a 19th-century observatory, you can gaze upon the stars from its veranda as night falls. And when the sun rises, spectacular views across the valley unfold. Inside the timber cottage reveals a cosy little nook with a warming log-burner and sloping ceilings. 

As you’ll be in the heart of Snowdonia National Park, you’ll have miles of walking trails straight from your doorstep. Nearby there’s a footpath to Rhaiadr Ddu, one of the most spectacular waterfalls in Wales.

A little further afield, take a trip to see a ruined Cistercian Abbey, founded in 1198 by Maredudd ap Cynan, just four miles away from the cottage. Or head to Dolgellau where you can start the hiking trail for Cader Idris or cycle along the Mawddach Trail, a disused railway line.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
