    Had a lovely week on the Old Cart House,it was extremely comfortable, and exceptionally clean, everything we needed was there, the owners were friendly and offered advice on the surrounding area, the only thing we found missing was somewhere to rinse the dogs down after muddy outings The views from the old cart house are unbelievable

  • "The cottage was beautiful, minimalistic with everything you could need."

    It was spotlessly clean with views that just speak for themselves. The view was from the patio doors and the bedroom window. There was all the pots pans and crockery you could need, even an ironing board should you need. Leaflets and maps of local area and a couple of books on local history. The owners were very friendly and helpful. We will definitely return and will recommend to everyone. If your looking for total peace, views and walks this is ideal

Once the sun has set, head upstairs to rejuvenate with a hot shower before you tuck yourselves in for a well-earned rest in a sumptuous double bed.

A trio of stone-built properties set within the same barn conversion, these cottages boast one off-road parking space per property, an outdoor seating area that enjoys breath-taking countryside and lake views - perfect for alfresco wining and dining, along with immaculate, bespoke, hand-crafted interiors carefully and lovingly designed by the owner's son, who is a carpenter by trade. Inside, you'll find fully-equipped, contemporary kitchens, living/sitting rooms complete with Smart TVs and plush seating, and bedrooms with accompanying en-suites, with some enjoying views of Lake Vyrnwy itself. The surroundings of the properties enjoy great access to iconic locations and landmarks such as the Giants of Vyrnwy Trail, the RSPB Llyn Vyrnwy, Dyfnant Forest, Rhiwagor Waterfall, and the mountain peak of Aran Fawddwy. During your stay, you can head to the nearby Dafarn Newydd: Village Stores, Takeaway & Fuel Station, which is just a short drive along the lake, whilst a delicious meal can be savoured at the Lake Vyrnwy Hotel and Spa or further afield at Goat Inn or The Hand Inn, both of which serve up traditional pub fare. For a full day out, jump in the car and explore the many wonders and attractions of the Eryri National Park, including King Arthur's Labyrinth, the viewpoint at Cwm Cynfal, Bala Lake Railway, the waterfall and gorge of Rhaeadr Y Graig Lwyd, and the Llanfair Slate Caverns.
