My wife and I stayed here with our 2 dogs. The cottage is very spacious and offers all necessary facilities for the perfect stay including the Hot Tub which we really enjoyed. The garden area is completely secluded and can be locked off, which gave our dogs the freedom to run around without the worry of them escaping.

Lovely place to stay. Overlooking Bala lake which is accessible at the local village by a quaint steam train. The location is perfect if you like to be just outside everything, being on a working farm the property is at the top of the farm affording privacy.

This is a beautiful farmhouse in a peaceful setting. It's on a working farm but we didn't have any interruptions because of that, it was quite lovely to see the sheep and cows.
