  • "More of a stately home than a cottage!"

    A beautiful property, spacious yet homely. The children didn’t want to leave. Lovely and clean, with literally every amenity, all you need is bath soap and toothbrush and toothpaste. Alpacas geese and sheep with the backdrop of beautiful rolling countryside…and a jacuzzi to enjoy the dark skies site.

    Thank you for your review we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. We hope to welcome you back one day. Also a big thank you for leaving the house so tidy when you left. It was a pleasure to meet you. Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely family get together at the Farm House near Bala for a special Birthday celebration."

    The house is very clean and beautifully furnished, with the downstairs bedroom a real bonus for anyone requiring disabled access. Many thanks to the owners, Geraint and Jane, who are very friendly and attentive, providing details of local activities and places to visit along with a lovely welcome basket. Although the weather was very cold, the house remained really warm throughout and the sitting room log burner is a real bonus. With amazing views in a quiet location, the Farm House is perfectly located for exploring the surrounding area and beautiful Welsh countryside.

    Thank you for our kind comments. We are so glad you enjoyed your week with us for the birthday celebrations. It was lovely to meet you all. We hope to welcome you back in the future. A very Happy Christmas and all our best wishes for 2024. Property Owner

  • "Fabulous property - wonderfully spacious and general layout of the house worked really well."

    The owners were very communicative both ahead of our stay and whilst we were on holiday - they made us feel very welcome and gave some great recommendations of places to visit. They also left some really thoughtful, locally sourced welcome gifts - including bara brith, welsh cakes, welsh butter and beer. The hot tub was a great addition and a really good size and it was helpful in the evenings having two reception rooms as it meant the children could watch tv in one room whilst the adults were in another. The garden space is well maintained with a good bbq available to use. In terms of location - it is remote but with that comes beautiful views and a very peaceful break. It is about a 10 minute drive to Corwen (a lovely little village, with a nice cafe for breakfast and a fantastic 'giant adventure' walk in the surrounding hills). Bala is about 10 minutes drive away as well - a nice town with a beautiful lake. Larger towns (including a large supermarket) were about 20-25 minutes drive away. All in all, I couldn't recommend this property enough, in particular if it is a holiday for multiple families as the space is great.

    Thank you for your feedback, it was lovely to meet you all. We are glad you enjoyed the house, hot tub and garden. We love to let you know abut the area and what there is to see and do.. Wee hope to welcome you back again. Property Owner

    This stunning property is truly a family paradise, with a wide range of activities and amenities that are sure to keep you entertained throughout your stay. From the moment you arrive at the cottage, you'll be struck by its beautiful design and tasteful decor. The cottage boasts six spacious and comfortable bedrooms, each of which is beautifully decorated and equipped with plush bedding and high-quality linens. The cottage also features two luxurious living rooms, which provide the perfect space to relax and unwind after a day of outdoor activities. The living rooms are tastefully furnished and equipped with comfortable sofas, a cozy fireplace, and large windows that offer stunning views of the surrounding countryside. One of the standout features of this cottage is the impressive games room, which is sure to delight sports enthusiasts of all ages. The games room is equipped with a range of activities, including a PS3, a WII console, large TV, surround sound as well as a wide selection of board games and books. In addition to the games room, the cottage also boasts a luxurious Jacuzzi, which provides the perfect opportunity to relax and rejuvenate after a long day of sporting activities. The Jacuzzi is located in a private, secluded area of the cottage, ensuring that you can unwind in complete privacy and comfort. The cottage's large and well-equipped kitchen is perfect for preparing delicious meals for the whole group. Whether you're whipping up a quick snack or preparing a gourmet feast, the kitchen is equipped with everything you need to create delicious dishes using fresh, local ingredients. Finally, the spacious courtyard provides the perfect outdoor space to enjoy the beautiful Welsh countryside. The courtyard is equipped with comfortable seating, a BBQ area, and plenty of space to enjoy outdoor games and activities.

    Upon entering the property, we were immediately impressed by the light, spaciousness, and quality of the farm house. Every bedroom offered wonderful views, an ample comfortable bed, and modern en-suite or nearby bathrooms; there was no need to draw straws! The two living areas allowed us to spread out according to our preferences for solitude or entertainment, while the hot-tub provided another venue for conversation and enjoying the outdoors. But the highlight was the combined kitchen and dining area with a huge table for a dozen or more that allowed us to share meals and celebrate birthdays in comfort. We didn't travel out many times but we did enjoy Bala Lake and nearby towns. Now we just need another excuse to come back! Thank You so much.

    Thank you for your feedback. We thoroughly enjoyed having you all to stay and are so pleased that your Mum enjoyed her birthday here. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Property Owner

Close to Bala Lake, it was forty minutes to the coast or within ten minutes or more for all kinds of walks, being on the fringes of Snowdonia.

  • "The Farmhouse is grand and spacious."

    There was a place to store everything, for example, plenty of coat hooks, cupboards etc and the laundry room was wonderful for drying out swimming costumes! It was warm and comfortable, and the wood burner was an added bonus during the colder nights. The hot tub was glorious, and it was great to relax in the sunshine, listening to the lambs in the nearby field. Unfortunately, the internet couldn't cope with our demands and was intermittent. If it was possible to install a decent broadband connection, we would be willing to pay a bit extra for the week, as it would have made the media room more accessible. There was also a Wii which hadn't been mentioned in the listings, and we would have brought games for the Wii had we known. The blue ray controller was missing in the media room too. There was also a downstairs toilet (as well as the enough suite for the downstairs bedroom) which was useful, and I hadn't noticed that in the listings either. However, considering the house had not been used for a while due to lockdown, it was a wonderful place for an enjoyable, relaxing, quiet break away. We particularly enjoyed visiting Brenig, the lake at Bala and wandering around Ruthin.

  • "The house was extremely dirty."

    I have a few pictures which highlight this. For the money paid I expected it to be spotless. There was a horrific smell from the main bathroom and one of the en suites which eventually led to us being unable to use the bathroom as the smell was so over powering. Not the home owners fault but there were a number of flies and wasp. In regards to the cleaning there were a number of dead flies around the house. It was a great shame as the property itself was amazing. The owners were not around until the Thursday so we were unable to mention anything. We did talk on that day but we were going out so was a quick chat.

    We were disappointed to read your comments and would like to advise the following improvements have been made; The BBQ has since been thoroughly cleaned out and coal has been replaced, the handle is down to wear and tear due to being outside. Toilet brush and holder, awaiting delivery for a replacement. The oven was previously damaged and has been cleaned thoroughly but we have to be cautious when doing so to avoid further damaging the enamel. With reference to the fly on the window sill, as you may appreciate these will come and go due to the summer weather and it being that the property is situated in a rural conutry side. The dust was something we were not aware of, but have since made note of this going forward to ensure that these areas are maintained. Had we been made aware during your stay that you were not happy about the cleanliness of our property, we would have addressed them there and then, but would like to thank you for providing us with your feedback following your stay.

    The house itself was very spacious, beautifully decorated with an enormous kitchen-diner and ensuites to three of the bedrooms. The hot tub was an added bonus! The only slight niggle was that wifi was variable, but obviously this is often the case with rural locations and the panorama more than made up for it. Jane, the owner, couldn't have been more welcoming or helpful, and the lady who came to clean at the end of our stay was equally as friendly - it felt like they really cared about us having an enjoyable stay. We ate at two fantastic local restaurants - Palé Hall and Tyddyn Llan. Both were very good and were able to cater for our party with a vegan diner, but we found Palé Hall to be a particularly special experience. We feel sure they will be getting a Michelin Star very soon (we were told they had been in the week before). The restaurant at Rhug Farm was also fantastic at adapting their menu to make it vegan. We would be very keen to come back to the Farm House later in the year when more local attractions are open. Thanks again for a really lovely stay.
