Farmhouse | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6

Key Info
  • Great for children of all ages
  • Pets welcome
  • Private garden

The renovation of this disused farmhouse on the banks of the river Dyfrdwy outside Llanuwchllyn has been a labour of love for local farmer Geraint Edwards. And his efforts and attention to detail are evident through out the property. The use of traditional materials and the general layout of this self catering cottage near Bala is faultless. The scenic backdrop to this picturesque cottage is, of course, the cherry on the cake.

A huge, stone floored, kitchen diner greet guests as they enter the cottage. Locally sourced oak beams span the high vaulted ceiling of this impressive space. An oak kitchen flanks the left hand side of the room and includes a beautiful range cooker and modern fridge freezer. An integrated dishwasher is also included. Washing machine and separate dryer are located in a utility area next door.

On the opposite side of the room an oak table looks out onto a fantastic view of the valley. A large patio window framing the scene perfectly. The table itself is of course constructed from locally sourced oak and put together by a family friend. (Mine's on order!)

Next, a ground floor en-suite twin bedroom is perfect for grandma and granddad perhaps. A wooden floor and more bespoke furniture give the room warmth and style. The en-suite has a large shower cubicle, wc and washbasin. There is also a separate ground floor wc adjacent to the kitchen for the kids when they run in from the garden.

From the kitchen diner we can also walk through to a smaller snug. Here, a two seater leather sofa faces onto a cute wood burning stove. A great spot for mum and dad to hide. Pictures from local artists adorn the walls. Pictures which perhaps, try to capture the essence of this area and all its beauty for people not lucky enough to experience it first hand like the guests to this self catering cottage near Bala.

The much larger lounge next door houses two striking red leather sofas. An impressive top of the range smart TV hanging on the wall adjacent will ensure that the gadget fanatics in your group will be well entertained as they flick from the usual digital TV channels to browsing the net and youtube videos, to checking emails or listening to DAB radio. Those lower down on the TV remote pecking order can be consoled by the fact that each bedroom also has its own flat screen TV.

Upstairs we have two more en-suite bedrooms. One double, one twin. Both these en-suites have a shower over bath arrangement. Here again the choice of fixtures and fittings is faultless. And the substantial oak doors and luxurious beds add to the general feeling of quality and excellence.

Bala

The village of Llanuchllyn on the southern tip of Llyn Tegid (Bala Lake) is just over a mile away. The steam train that runs along the edge of the lake sets off from here. The village is also home the famous Eagle Pub. There's a short cut across the fields back to the cottage, but don't forget to bring a torch.

Bala itself is a 5 minute drive away and is a charming example of a welsh market town. A wonderful mix of traditional welsh culture and contemporary shops and cafés. The surrounding area has long established itself as a Mecca for adventure activities. Sailing, kayaking and windsurfing can be enjoyed on Bala lake and the world renowned Tryweryn white water centre is just on the outskirts of the village.

Sitting as it does on the Eastern edge of the National Park, this part of Snowdonia has the natural benefit of being easily accessible from the English road network. But seaside towns such as Aberdyfi and Barmouth are only an hour drive to the west. Similarly Snowdon is a little less than an hour to the North.
