    “Wonderful location, very well serviced, everything we needed”
    Great communication before we arrived and good directions to the cottage. It is part of a restored workhouse, so lots of history. Easy to access (when you leave the main door, pull the handle up and then a little towards you are you turn the key). Stayed in many cottages and this had the best provision of essentials. Towels etc, toilet paper, tea and coffee, all there for us. The cottage was immaculate, very well maintained and the decoration is a very high standard. ...

Towels etc, toilet paper, tea and coffee, all there for us. The cottage was immaculate, very well maintained and the decoration is a very high standard. Parking permit for the car park opposite. This had put us off to begin but it is a very quiet car park, just back from the high street. It is very convenient as you do not have to try and find street parking. The permit can also be used in other car parks. There is a booklet on the cottage essentials and in the footstool there are further details, very well presented, to local walks, etc. Communal gardens, which was good for our dog although we tended to walk her around the lake most times. I cannot speak highly enough of the cottage, my husband found it a nuisance to have to go downstairs to the loo but I didn't find this a problem. The location is excellent. A short cut through to the supermarket and the high street, with all the local amenities there. Despite being so close there is no noise at all in the cottage, so perfect. The lake is 2 minutes away, with walks around it and close to the narrow gauge railway. I would highly recommend this and if we return to this area we will book again.

About the location

BALA

Corwen 11 miles; Dolgellau 18 miles; Llangollen 22 miles; Betws-y-Coed 29 miles.

The bustling market town of Bala lies within the beautiful Snowdonia National Park and is located at the head of Llyn Tegid, Bala’s famous lake, which is the largest natural lake in Wales and home to a unique fish called the Gwyniad, a relic of the Ice Age. Renowned as a centre for great watersports including fishing, sailing, canoeing, windsurfing and whitewater rafting, Bala is also the headquarters of the narrow gauge Bala Lake Railway. The town itself is steeped in history and has a range of interesting shops, inns and restaurants, and an historical Town Walk. Surrounded by the wonderful Berwyn Mountains on one side and the beautiful Snowdonia Mountain Range on the other, this is a mecca for climbing, walking, mountain biking and many other outdoor activities. An ideal location for touring all of North and Mid Wales including the stunning Cambrian Bay Coast with the six-mile long Harlech Beach, overlooked by its majestic medieval castle. A truly wonderful part of Wales catering for all interests.
