Book it now if: You want to escape. The snow just makes the Snowdonia scenery all the more spectacular, and with toasty Welsh wool blankets and central heating as well as the wood burner, you won't even feel a hint of cold. On a single track lane, the nearest village is almost two miles away, and apart from some inquisitive sheep you'll barely see anyone except the occasional passing farmer. There's hooded Sheepskin bathrobes to curl up in, two TV rooms with comfy sofas, a huge dining table and a proper kitchen so you barely need to leave.
Bedding down: The cottage sleeps six, with three bedrooms. Try to nab the double tucked away at the top of the cottage in the dark beamed eaves, with its own en-suite and views onto the hills. Downstairs there's another double room looking out to the valley, and a twin room with its own spectacular view, both sharing a bathroom. Each room is decorated slightly differently, but there's furry throws, soft blankets and comfy pillows in them all.
Feed me: The last thing you want to do is start searching out a supermarket when you arrive at Wayside, so there's a welcome box in all the Sheepskin Collection cottages, including ground coffee, Ceylon teabags, plus extra virgin oil, Cornish sea salt and nibbles, such as Spanish Tortas de Aceite biscuits, garlic stuffed olives and French truffles. You can also order in tapas and meals from Jacobs & Field delicatessen – there's soup from Michelin-starred Sharrow Bay, traditional Italian pasta, and great winter comfort food like Duck leg confit. Everything comes with simple cooking instructions and tastes delicious. If the weather's good, there's a patio outside with table and chairs. Pick up some bread from Popty'r Dref Bakery in Dolgellau, a favourite of Rick Stein. Or a short drive away, Bwyty Mawddach restaurant near Dolgellau has a fantastic locally sourced menu – try the Welsh lamb.
What's the damage: Three nights costs from £560 before December 19 and from £720 in 2011, although shorter breaks are available.
