The North Wales region
One of the most ancient and hauntingly beautiful areas in Europe. Called Eryri (the place of eagles) in Welsh, Snowdonia welcomes visitors to a breathtaking natural environment, with Snowdonia National Park at its heart and much, much more. People have lived, worked and thrived in this unique Celtic principality for more than 5000 years. Their legacy is a land which will fascinate the visitor with its rich opportunities for adventure, activity and discovery, its fascinating history and its ancient, musical language and culture.
Bala is the home of the largest natural lake in Wales, Llyn Tegid, where watersports of all types can be enjoyed with or without expert instruction. Nearby, the National White Water, Canolfan Tryweryn offers white knuckle rafting and much more. A wealth of outdoor activities literally are on the doorstep from rock climbing, gorge walking, canyoning, pony trekking, quad biking to mountain biking in the stunning Coed Y Brenin Forest trails and more! If all this sounds all a bit like too much hard work, why not take a gentle stroll or drive and take in some of the most breathtaking scenery in the United Kingdom.

"Comfortable, spacious accommodation with all the mod cons"
Our family had a really pleasant stay in this lovely cottage. Apart from being spacious, it has a very well-equipped kitchen which includes a dishwasher and washing machine and reliable wi-fi. The onl… More
We're pleased you liked the farmhouse and glad that the Wi-Fi was useful and reliable. We continue to add things when we can, so that our guests will feel at home.

"Wonderful cottage, great location"
Had a lovely relaxing week in Llechwedd Fwyalchen cottage. Fed the log burner with branches found on our wanders, but cottage was perfectly warm throughout. Generous bath, cottage comfortable through… More
We're pleased you found it peaceful, and with the neighbours some distance away, we don't think they would notice if you wanted to wash yourselves in loud music from time to time. We'll be wanting to get up there ourselves soon to see the new season's lambs, and ensure that the place is ready for others to enjoy.

"Heaven in the mountains"
My wife and daughter call it the best holiday ever. Even Grizzly loved it and has taken to us more after a fantastic week in the mountains. The cottage is ideally located and has all the amenities req… More
Thank you for your review. Visitor comments help us to make Llechwedd Fwyalchen a really great place to stay.
To ensure that cosy glow of a real fire on top of the central heating system we will try to supply a list of local places and times that guests can buy more firewood.
We hope that you will return to the area during other seasons of the year.

"A little piece of heaven perfect to relax and unwind"
Stunning, cosy cottage hidden away from the rest of the world ideal location to do nothing but relax. Breathtaking views, pretty walks up to the mountains via an amazing secluded waterfall. The photos of the inside of the cottage do not do it justice as it is much bigger and there is a large dining room which was an added bonus. The log fire was so cosy on a cold October evening after a rather wet and quiet unpleasant climb up mount snowdon in the wind and fog. The garden was enclosed which was perfect for our dog Oscar and the cleanliness of the cottage was faultless. We will defiantly recommend to all and hope to return again during the summer.
We're delighted that you enjoyed our spacious cottage, where the word "cosy" perhaps best describes the ability of the heating system to keep it 'toasty warm' when it's rather autumnal outside. The glow of the log fire is a bonus. You'll find the tranquillity of the house a joy during all seasons, so please try it again for a spring or summer break.

"Perfect holiday getaway!"
I have to say that I agree with the previous reviewer - this cottage was truly a lovely place to stay, and if we could we would still be there!We found the cottage enchanting - clean and tidy, very ho… More
We're pleased you liked our mountainside cottage and we're sorry that it's already booked up for the Christmas week this year. Having snow on the hilltops across the valley adds another element to the scenery. We hope you find another opportunity to return to this part of Wales.

Because the previous review is unfair, I felt I had to speak up for this property. We have just returned from a week at this cottage and it is no less perfect than it was the last time we visited. Th… More
Thank you for your comments. We will continue to work to ensure that, after their days out around Snowdonia, our guests are delighted to return to this peaceful hideaway. There must be many excuses for a further visit to this part of Wales.

"OK if you do not have pet allergies & can cope with lack of heating when it's cold"
01 July 2013. My husband and myself (both pensioners) and one of our grandchildren (3yrs old) stayed here 22-29 June at £350 cost. The house and the surrounding views are beautiful. Cottage loc… More
Sorry to hear that previous guest's pets did not agree with you. We spoke about the heating to confirm instructions at the cottage. Guests always have control and can turn to 'continuous' during chilly weather. The boiler can always keep the house warm when there's ice and snow outside.

"a perfect place for us to stay"
we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and found the owners very accommodating and communicated well with us throughout the booking process. The location suited us for visiting the places we like in wales and our son loved the fact we had cows and sheep on the doorstep. We will definately re visit.
We're glad you liked our farmhouse cottage and its location for exploring this part of North Wales. We'd be delighted to have you back at Llechwedd Fwyalchen and give you a chance to visit more in the area.

"Great walks and outdoor adventures"
I stayed here with friends in the spring time. We were really lucky to have terrific weather and the view from the house was stunning; daffodils, lambs, mountains, the lake- we just had to get out to … More
We're glad you enjoyed walking on some of the mountains near Llechwedd Fwyalchen. We hope that you will return soon to try Cadair Idris, the Arenigs across the valley or the Arans which are just above the house. But you might also find time for relaxation on one of the beaches around Harlech.

"The Mountain Hideaway"
Wanted to get away for a couple of days with the wife and children aged six and eight and we could not have been more lucky. This is not one of those porcelain houses where parents are terrified that… More
Thank you. We're sorry about this year's late spring, but hope you enjoyed the cosy glow of log fires on return to the cottage after your country walks. We look forward to having you back at Llechwedd Fwyalchen and a warm summer, when days out on the mountains and trips to the beach will add to your memories of this peaceful hideaway.
