  • "We loved the house and its location."

    The decor and house was maintained to a high standard. Our only negative was the limited kitchen accessories - no electric blender/whisk, cutlery was poor quality , no tablewear i.e. serving dishes, the local shop had run out of logs so would have been good if there was an extra supply at the house that we could have paid for. Looking forward to visting again Thank you

  • "The cottage is extremely comfortable and well presented, the views are outstanding and the location cannot be faulted."

    We found everything we needed had been supplied. The garden is delightful but not secure for a large dog (or a determined small dog) and the presence of sheep in the neighbouring paddock means that pets cannot be let out off the lead unsupervised, but the various walks accessible from the doorstep make this a minor inconvenience. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

  • "We had a lovely weekend at Bryn Vyrnwy."

    Shortly after we arrived the owner of the property called to try and sort out the wi fi which had gone down due to the storm the previous week he was very helpful trying to sort the problem. The cottage has everything you could need for a comfortable stay (including a cafetière) which he brought with him, also Christmas decorations were lovely. Although the property was enclosed there were sheep in the field at the side of the property so we did have to be careful with our dogs but this wasn’t a problem,the walks from the property we’re ideal for the dogs.there is a public bar within Lake Vyrnwy hotel with friendly staff and the most amazing view over the lake would highly recommend this property and hope to return soon

  • "The photos really don’t do it justice."

    It’s so much more impressive in real-life. Location is perfect for walking, but it is very remote. No shops or pubs for a mile or two. Lovely and warm, beautifully finished. We didn’t even use the main living room, the dining room area was so nice. Beds were amazingly comfortable. Guests must check out the RSPB bird hide at the end of the road. We were inches away from a woodpecker. Local residents were friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, we were hit by Storm Arwen which knocked out the power for over 12 hours, so we cut our holiday short and went home. Only note to owner: House could do with a cafetière or some way to make fresh coffee. Good idea with the camping light under the sink, saved the day in the power cut!

About the location


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.
