  • "What a fantastic beautifully decorated and equipped bungalow."

    The pictures don't fully do it justice. Situated in a very quiet cul-de-sac and literally 2 minutes walk (across the road) to Bala Lake and the leisure centre. The town centre is no more than a 5 minute stroll and has plenty of bars, restaurants,(all are dog friendly), take aways a Co-op and Spar together with a small selection of traditional shops. Check out the Welsh Ice cream. The narrow gauge railway is worth a trip, travelling through the beautiful Welsh countryside. You can walk to the station (just follow the lake round to the left of the leisure centre taking about 20 minutes leisurely stroll. Anyone with an electric vehicle there is a charging point on the Green carpark at the far end of the town which is walkable in 10 minutes.Currently there is 1 CSS 50kW and 1 type 2 22kW socket available provided by SWARCO e-connect. There are also 2 new charge points at the leisure centre which at the time of writing were not operational. Many thanks to the owner Rachael, who is available if you have any questions. The perfect break.
