    “A very relaxing break”
    The cottage was very well decorated and equipped to a high standard! The owner of the cottage was helpful and was around if we needed him but left us to our own devices! He offered great advice on places to go. While staying in this cottage it does feel like you are in the middle of nowhere and is very relaxing but you are only a 10 minute drive to the local village.

About the location


Bala 5 miles; Dolgellau 13 miles.

The traditional Welsh village of Llanuwchllyn is situated 5 miles from the popular town of Bala, at the southern end of Bala Lake, the largest natural body of water in Wales. The village offers a pub (with shop) serving excellent food, along with a petrol station, but is best known as the headquarters of the narrow gauge Bala Lake Railway, which provides a 9 mile scenic journey along the shores of the famous lake. The bustling market town of Bala is nearby and lies within the Snowdonia National Park at the head of Llyn Tegid, Bala’s famous lake which is the largest natural lake in Wales. It is renowned as a centre for great watersports including fishing, sailing, canoeing, windsurfing and whitewater rafting. The town itself is steeped in history and has a range of interesting shops, inns, restaurants and an historical Town Walk. Surrounded by the wonderful Berwyn Mountains, this is a mecca for walking, cycling and other outdoor activities. An ideal location for touring North and Mid Wales including the stunning North Wales Heritage Coast and all the attractions of Snowdonia National Park.
