    “The cottage was very comfortable, clean and spacious including lovely welcoming touches and very helpful information from the owner (by phone).”

    We found it to be in an excellent location for exploring, with all the places that we wanted to visit being a 40 - 60 minutes scenic drive in any direction. (Mount Snowdon, The Waterfalls, Bounce Below) The shower is powerful and the bath deep. Also as an added bonus there is a dishwasher - most welcome after a long day of hiking! ...

    We found it to be in an excellent location for exploring, with all the places that we wanted to visit being a 40 - 60 minutes scenic drive in any direction. (Mount Snowdon, The Waterfalls, Bounce Below) The shower is powerful and the bath deep. Also as an added bonus there is a dishwasher - most welcome after a long day of hiking! The lake is about a 10 minute stroll away where we hired kayaks, had a lovely full breakfast and delicious ice cream at the cafe. We hired bikes from the bike shop round the corner. The locals were all very friendly and there is everything that you could need in the village, a couple of small supermarkets, several pubs and restaurants, a couple of takeaways and some lovely gift shops. We had a great holiday and would definitely recommend this cottage and location as a place to stay :)

The cottage

This homely semi-detached cottage rests in the town of Bala; a market town steeped in history, located at the head of Llyn Tegid, Bala’s famous natural lake.

Perfectly suited for families, The Old School House is comfortable and inviting, renovated to a high standard, with everything you need to feel right at home.

The country cottage kitchen is a delightful place to commence your stay, followed by a beautiful sitting room which will become the children's cosy little hideaway with a collection of books and games on offer, and a gas fire for those cooler evenings.

The separate lounge is equally as stylish, including sumptuous sofa's, a feature fireplace, and a dining table for six people to come together after an adventure.

There is even a Blu-ray player to entertain those cosy nights in.

The upper floor is the perfect opportunity for some relaxation, with a choice of three bedrooms; comprising two doubles with wardrobes, and a room with bunk beds, also featuring a PlayStation 3.

Lastly, The Old School House is complimented by a family bathroom which is brought to life by a walk-in shower, and a freestanding bath.

Bordered 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 Cambrian Bay Coast with the six-mile long Harlech Beach, overlooked by its majestic medieval castle, this retreat is not to be missed.
