    “The cottage was lovely and very peaceful.”

    The information on walks near there was great to have.

The property

Bala 5 miles.

A cosy, detached cottage, with stunning views across the rolling Welsh countryside and down the valley, ideally located midway between Bala and Llangollen, a mile from the village of Maerdy, on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park.

This charming cottage, a short distance from the owner's home, offers cosy, open plan studio accommodation, making it an ideal romantic base from which to explore the local area, take long walks, or cycle many of the local trails.

This fully restored cottage, with its quaint shuttered windows, is situated in 47 acres of private land comprising upland grazing and moorland with panoramic views to Snowdon and Cader Idris, and offers a double bedroom, an en-suite shower room, and a well-equipped fitted kitchen with dining area.

A stable door leads to a conservatory with woodburning stove and views down the valley, and the conservatory opens out onto the outdoor seating area, which enjoys the same fantastic views over the valley towards Ty-Nant.

This character cottage is a 20 minute, downhill stroll to the village pub, and has direct walking trails from the fields in front allowing access to numerous unspoilt paths.

It is possible to walk or cycle all the way to Bala, 5 miles away.

The Glassblobbery is very close, or Rhug Organic Farm, with its shop and cafe, is less than 1 mile away.

For the more adventurous try white-water rafting on the upper reaches of the River Dee, or visit the high-wire adventure course nearby.

This cosy cottage is an ideal, romantic getaway from which to relax and explore the Snowdonia area.

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.
