  • “The owners provided a lovely welcome tray and left tea, coffee etc for us.”

    The kitchen was well equipped, the views were fabulous and it was spacious.

    The kitchen was well equipped, the views were fabulous and it was spacious. It’s only a short walk to the lake and into Bala. The owners are very helpful and welcoming. We’d recommend the property to others.

Just a step away, an open plan sitting area is overlooked by characterful ceiling beams and Velux windows that sweep above the room.

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.
