The property

Tucked away in the beautiful town of Bala, surrounded by wonderful countryside, rests this charming two-bedroom property, Meloch Cottage.

Enjoying a central location, with a wealth of amenities and attractions right on the doorstep, Meloch Cottage is the idyllic escape for a family, two couples or nature-loving friends looking to explore this glorious region of Gwynedd.

Park up outside the stone-fronted property and take your luggage inside before admiring the quaint setting.

There is outdoor seating at the front of the cottage to soak in the sunshine and enjoy a peaceful cup of tea.

On entering the property you will find an entrance hallway to house your walking boots and coats, and as you continue to explore Meloch Cottage, you are welcomed by a snug sitting room with a plush sofa, a woodburning stove and a Smart TV; here you can spend your evening relaxing as you watch your favourite programme or discuss the next day's activities.

An exposed stone wall divides the sitting room from the kitchen/ diner, where you will find all you need to prepare some delicious home-cooked meals and gather around the dining table to tuck into a feast.

The ground-floor also hosts a fabulous shower room, with a spacious walk-in shower for a refreshing rinse after an action-packed day in Bala.

As the evening grows dark, climb upstairs to discover two tastefully decorated bedrooms, with featured stone walls, hanging lights and furniture; choose between the king-size bed or the double to rest your head.

In the morning, kick-start your day with a steaming cup of coffee, courtesy of the coffee machine and discuss the plans for the day ahead.

You will be spoilt for choice with the attractions in Bala, take a quaint stroll around the largest, natural lake in Wales, which offers fantastic watersports for the outdoor enthusiasts, or visit Byd Mary Jones World to uncover the fascinating history of Mary Jones, where you can also indulge in a slice of cake at the café.

Embark on an adventure to the pretty town of Llangollen, which rests beside the River Dee; here you can explore quirky gift shops, sample delicious eateries and enjoy a refreshing glass of wine or cask ale at one of many pubs.

Travel further afield to the enchanting village of Betws-y-Coed for a stunning walk through Swallow Falls, or hike up the forested hills for amazing views and a splendour of nature.

For a magical escape to the glorious Welsh countryside, choose Meloch Cottage.

About the location


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.
