The property

This fully renovated, delightful, detached 17th century stone-built farmhouse stands in its own grounds, in a lovely rural location close to the River Lliw in the scenic Pennant Lliw Valley.

Surrounded by wonderful countryside on the outskirts of Llanuwchllyn village, 5 miles from Bala, this superb Bala cottage provides quality, luxury accommodation, with a wealth of original character which includes impressive oak beams, a stone inglenook fireplace and some traditional quarry tile floors, all combined with modern facilities and furnishings.

The lawned garden outside this Bala cottage has a spacious patio that is perfect for alfresco dining, and for enjoying the spectacular views of Mount Arenig.

This Bala cottage is surrounded by wonderful, scenic walks including a Celtic castle ruin on the top of Carndochan Mountain, 10 minutes' walk from the house.

Nearby Bala offers excellent water sports, including the National White Water Centre, and renowned mountain biking at Coed-y-Brenin is only 12 miles away.

A truly lovely Bala cottage, in a wonderfully peaceful and relaxing location yet close to attractions, perfect for an exciting year-round holiday.

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.
