The cottage was perfect. Spotlessly clean, lovely & cozy & all the equipment we needed. It was so peaceful, near enough to Bala if you wanted to venture out and a pub in walking distance, although we did not go to it. We loved the Hot Tub and the Hosts were so friendly & helpful. We will definitely be back.

Great cottage in a lovely, quiet location on a farm just south of Bala lake. Excellent facilities for our party of 6 adults and 2 dogs. 3 good sized bedrooms, 2 lounges and a dining room, plus a hot tub. Plenty of walks nearby, we also went to the coast for a day which is 30-40 minutes by car. Would definitely recommend.

This is a first class establishment run by a warm and friendly couple who went out of their way to make us feel at home. The whole house is thoughtfully equipped and, to our mind, well set out for a variety of needs. The extra lounge, used as a reading room by us, was a bonus. It is so quiet and peaceful and proximity of the local pub, a fifteen miRead morenute walk, was a bonus. The food, beer and hospitality here was excellent. Local taxis are available for the less energetic. Hide

Absolutely perfect cottage, idyllic location, amazing hosts. A short stroll to the local pub that does food (we only ate there once - it was ok, but nothing special).
