Very kind owners! House with all the comfort that we needed. Fishing in the river and in the Bala lake was very successfull. Excellent location to visit Swondonia.

Cozy, serene, recommended!

Stayed with three generations of family and found the cottage perfectly suited, especially with the two separate lounge areas. The wood stove was cozy on chilly evenings, the outdoor space was lovely and we especially enjoyed trips to the creek and seeing our 'neighbors' the sheep and cows. Kitchen was well fitted and there was room to cook and serve dinner for seven. Perfect location for Bala Lake and the north and west coasts are accessible if you don't mind a drive. Great if you like a bit of room around you to spread out and be quiet.


Idyllic, serene ... perfect

We spent a wonderful week as two families in this beautiful, tranquil location. The "cottage" is ideal with plenty of space for everyone - en suite bathrooom in one double room and spacious bathroom at the other end of the landing..

As well as the fantastic kitchen and dining room (complete with Rayburn!) there are two seperate lounges so it's possible for the kids to watch tv or play their board games whilst the adults sit in the other lounge - complete with an idyllic log burner - whiling away the wee hours!

We would thoroughly recommend the cottage as a perfect place to explore a beautiful part of Wales ... and the hot tub is just an added bonus to what is a lovely house.


Lovely well equipped house in excellent location. Very suitable for extended families such as ours. Lovely to have the Rayburn on all the time - very welcoming. Wonderful to have a welcome pack as well.

Very kind owners, wonderful place to go fishing on Bala Lake and it was a very quiet place to stay!

Lovely location, very clean property and very baby friendly.

Mrs Purcell

This was a perfect cozy house for a winter break with the log burner etc. There were 4 adults and 4 children in our party and we all had plenty of room. Unfortunately we had to cut our stay short but we would have loved to have stayed longer. I'm sure this house would be just as perfection the summer as it's surroundings are beautiful. The owners were great, very welcoming.

Mrs McAlinden

Great modern cottage in a tranquil location.

Mr Patel

We had a fantastic holiday. There was a Christmas tree with fairy lights, the fire was lit and in the kitchen, they had left us some welsh cakes, butter, milk and tea for when we arrived - very much appreciated. The walks were great and we would recommend it to anyone who loves the country way of life.
