  • “One of those where you don't have to worry about anything.”

    Spotlessly clean, a wonderful, kind host and very comfortable beds. Perfect lounge with large cloth sofas, large widescreen TV with Amazon and Netflix. As many logs as you need for the woodburner plus no internet connection issues! Spectacular gardens with friendly chickens and cat plus a relaxing soundtrack from the birds in the trees. It was our 3 month old baby's first holiday and we are very happy it was here at Eithin Fynydd

The property

Llanuwchllyn 2 miles.

A beautiful semi-detached 18th century farmhouse, situated in an elevated position up a long track, with views toward Bala Lake in North Wales.

Situated near to the village of Llanuwchllyn and just three miles from Lake Bala, this lovely North Wales cottage has masses of character features and provides very homely accommodation for families and groups of friends.

At this cottage near Bala, there are three delightful first floor bedrooms and a family bathroom.

On the ground floor is a spacious farmhouse kitchen with a comfy sofa and a warming woodburning stove, so you can chat with members of your party as you prepare a tasty dinner.

The large sitting room is home to another fabulous woodburning stove set in an inglenook fireplace and is a superb spot to relax and talk over the days adventures.

The garden at this Welsh cottage runs to three quarters of an acre and is a wonderful space to sit with a morning cup of coffee as you plan the day’s activities.

Wander the grounds and discover the little stream at the rear of the cottage, from where you can also catch a glimpse of Bala Lake in the distance.

Llanuwchllyn is a home to a shop and a pub, and is the starting point of the Bala Lake Railway, a narrow gauge track which runs for nine miles along the shores of the lake.

Bala has a wide range of local amenities including cafes and restaurants and is the leading watersports location in this part of North Wales.

Try your hand at kayaking, windsurfing or sailing, or if you prefer your holiday on dry land, why not indulge in some mountain biking at one of the many centres nearby.

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.
