    “The accommodation was excellent, clean and everything was of great quality.”

    It was lovely and private and had everything we required for our stay. Jane was welcoming and the whole experience could not have been better.

The property

Bala 7.5 miles.

One of the finest holiday cottages on the Denbighshire/Gwynedd border, this superb detached farmhouse with hot tub and benefiting from fibre optic broadband is set in the quiet hamlet of Glan Yr Afon, or Glanrafon, on the edge of the owners’ small caravan park.

The owners have extensively renovated this holiday cottage to create a delightfully well-equipped and stylishly-presented home-from-home.

The spacious kitchen with range cooker has been knocked through to create a dining and seating area, forming the hub of the home and a room where all the family will want to spend time preparing home-cooked meals or just chatting together.

A further sitting room has been furnished with a woodburning stove and comfy seating to provide a cosy retreat on cooler evenings.

For gaming and movie enthusiasts, there is a media room set up with surround sound TV, PlayStation 3 and Blu-ray player for a great cinema experience.

The property offers six stylish bedrooms, including four king-size doubles, a further double room and a twin room.

Three of the king-size rooms have en-suite facilities, and all have designer tiles and high quality fittings.

On sunny days, relax in the gardens and listen to the nearby stream babbling past, before hopping into the hot tub and soaking away your aches and stresses, or stargazing late into the night.

Guests also have use of the quiet caravan site’s playground with swing, slide and climbing frame.

With Rhug organic farm and restaurant only 2.5 miles away, a licensed café in the village and a Michelin-starred restaurant within 7 miles, there is somewhere to dine for everyone’s taste.

The delights of Bala, with its extensive range of activities and superb watersports options will provide you with something new to do every day of your stay.

A perfect cottage for friends and family to enjoy a memorable holiday, all year round.

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.
