    “Tranquility and perfect views”

    We, four adults, Grandson and Bruce the dog, stayed at the Hideaway for a week in August. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful setting and spectacular views. There is ample parking space for two cars immediately outside the property. We had a warm welcome from the Owners who had left tea things and cake at the ready for our arrival, which we happily tucked into after a short tour of the Hideaway. ...

    We, four adults, Grandson and Bruce the dog, stayed at the Hideaway for a week in August. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful setting and spectacular views. There is ample parking space for two cars immediately outside the property. We had a warm welcome from the Owners who had left tea things and cake at the ready for our arrival, which we happily tucked into after a short tour of the Hideaway. The cottage had everything we needed really for our week stay. The beds were comfortable and there was ample cupboard space. The lounge had a lovely log burning stove and it was a regret that in the hottest summer for years we didn't need to light it! It doesn't take much imagination to realise that in colder winter months this fire will keep the cottage cosy. We mostly spent our time in the lighter conservatory /dining room. This is the room with by far the best views of the valley. Just outside was a small seating area which was a lovely spot for a drink at the end of a busy day. The kitchen is compact but we managed well enough with just two if us in the kitchen at a time. The downside from the Grandson's point of view was the intermittent wifi access however the adults thought it probably did him good to do other things! All in all this is a good base for touring this part of Wales. Lake Vrnwy, which is stunning, is only a short distance, well within the limits of a comfortable walk. The local village shop is on the way to the Lake. We would recommend stopping at the far end of the Lake to take in the waterfall and the drive from Lake Vrnwy to Lake Bala; the views are stunning if you have the courage to negotiate the high twisting road! If you want a very decent Butcher go to Llanfyllin and while you are there take a visit to the Workhouse for a glimpse of the past.

About the location

LAKE VYRNWY

Bala 13 miles.

This wonderful beauty spot is referred to as “a lake for all seasons”. It is situated just south of Snowdonia between the Cambrian Mountains and the Berwyn range. It was originally a Victorian man-made reservoir with a stone-built damn built in the 1880’s being the very first of its kind. Today, this beautiful and popular retreat is a National Nature Reserve, SSSI and a renowned RSPB reserve boasting a huge variety of birds and wildlife. The lake has a circumference of 11 miles which is all surrounded by wonderful scenic countryside including the 6000 acre Dyfnant Forest which is perfect for exhilarating walks, bike rides, bird watching or simply relaxing while enjoying a picnic. The local village of Llanwddyn is very small and pleasant and provides a pub, cafes, RSPB shop and craft and produce outlets. From this lovely location you can tour all of Mid Wales, the magnificent Snowdonia National Park, Powis Castle and gardens and delightful Shropshire. This is a perfect year-round location.
