  • "The cottage was a lovely traditional Welsh cottage at the end of a gated track."

    It was a perfect hideaway from the outside world. The cottage was comfortable and cozy. The woodburning stove in the living room was lovely, especially as the weather turned colder the day we arrived. The master bedroom was lovely too and the large bed really comfortable. The views across the valley were beautiful and the owner made sure everything was in order.

  • "We found the owners of this cottage to be very helpful and friendly during our stay, they contacted us on our first day to checked we’d arrived safely and to check if we needed anything as we’d arrived during a storm."

    The log burner and supply of wood came in very handy.

  • "The cottage was lovely, in a great location."

    It was clean, well stocked with kitchen equipment and with plenty of room. We were only 4 people, but there is room for 6. The handover process was simple. As the weather was not great, we had a fire most nights, and there was plenty of wood available for use. The process with Sykes was not great, including being chased for payment when I had already set up automatic payment.

  • "Lovely cottage on a working farm."

    Lovely to see the new born lambs out the front of the cottage while enjoying the fantastic views. Log burner and unlimited chopped wood was great. Great value for money. Thank you.

    The cottage was clean and confortable with amazing views. We loved the beautiful and peaceful location. The children enjoyed exploring the farm land with rolling fields and woodland. The owner contacted us during our break to make sure we were happy, which was lovely.

The property

Bala 8 miles.

This cosy farmhouse sits in an elevated position, just 1.5 miles from the village of Maerdy and boasts far-reaching views across the valley.

Surrounded by 150 acres of farmland and close to the bustling market town of Bala and the hugely popular Llyn Tegid, this cottage is a perfect base for families or friends looking for peace and quiet after a day full of activities.

Set over two floors, there are two comfortable bedrooms on a split-level first floor, and two bathrooms, including one with a separate shower for added convenience.

Downstairs, there is a family room with three single beds, a well-equipped, compact kitchen leading to a dining area and also a welcoming sitting room with comfy seating; the perfect place to sit down and relax, in front of the woodburner, with a hot cup of tea.

Outside, you can sit on the small patio and enjoy the views or perhaps take a walk across the local farmland.

Bala is just eight miles away and opens up a wealth of activities and days out.

There is so much to do, just around the formidable Llyn Tegid (Bala Lake), that dominates the local landscape, with all the watersports and walking trails, or perhaps enjoy the views and a game of golf, an upland 10 hole course 1000 feet above sea level.

The area is peppered with lakes and surrounded by beautiful mountain scenery, rivers and waterfalls.

Why not visit Pistyll Rhaeadr, the awe-inspiring 80m single-drop waterfall, or marvel at the industrial ingenuity of the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and the breathtaking views?

The area is perfect for outdoor activities with a fabulous selection available locally, such as whitewater rafting at the National Whitewater Centre, watersports, fishing, cycling, walking trails, as well as being a short drive from the Snowdonia National Park and all it has to offer.

Slightly further afield, why not take a day trip and explore local National Trust properties, such as Ysbyty Ifan Estate or Ty Mawr Wybrnant, the latter being close to the stunning Swallow Falls and pretty mountain village of Betws-y-Coed?

Guests can also take the opportunity to scale the peaks of Snowdon, either by foot or perhaps by taking advantage of the mountain railway in Llanberis.

This is a perfect base for families or friends to experience the tranquillity of rural Wales, yet still being spoilt for choice with fantastic local days out and the opportunity to explore the fantastic and diverse landscapes of North Wales.

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.
