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.
