Cysgod Bach is situated in the sleepy village of Llanfor, just one mile out of the town of Bala within the Snowdonia National Park in Wales. We are ideally situated for an activity break or for touring the National Park. Bala is steeped in Welsh history and culture and you will be sure to hear some Welsh spoken if you come to stay with us! We also have Caban y Saer (Carpenter's Cabin) which is also just for two people.

We pride ourselves on giving a warm Welsh Croeso/Welcome. Our aim is for you to have a wonderful holiday here in Wales. You will be well looked after as all needs can be met from drying soggy clothes to finding information on the internet, booking activities or advising on days out. We hope for happy guests who will want to come again. Contact me if you wish to clarify any details before booking. I can organise flowers, cards, or even a starter pack of food for that first night's stay.

Please note that the hot tub is in my garden so I can use it too!

Snowdonia is also great for adventure and we have a high concentration of opportunities for outdoor activities - within a few minutes you can enjoy water-sports on Llyn Tegid, White Water Rafting at the National Whitewater Centre, Fish, Cycle, Play Golf, Walk and do off road driving to name just a few.


Cysgod Bach cottage is set in beautiful surroundings within walking distance of Bala town. The village of Llanfor dates back to the medieval period. There are some Bronze Age burial sites nearby and a Medieval enclosure. We are just one mile out of the market town of Bala in the Snowdonia National Park. There are footpaths nearby on which to walk into Bala or up Moel Emoel mountain just behind us. See or for trails.

"A fantastic relaxing break"

On arrival we were greeted by Mel, who already had the hot tub up to temperature for us and the lights and fire on in the cottage to make it a truly warm welcome for which we were very grateful being a chilly February evening. We had a lovely stay and found the cottage to be in a great location for exploring. We went walking in the local hills one day and also visited the coast for a day without too much effort. I particularly enjoyed having morning coffee overlooking the sheep in the fields at the back, with the spectacular hills in the distance. The cottage itself was 'top notch', with every comfort and finished to a very high standard. We would certainly recommend a visit and hope to return ourselves in warmer weather to make the most of the private deck at the the back of the cottage and to enjoy breakfast Al fresco!

"Beautiful, clean and in a great location."

We arrived later than we were hoping and being tired after a long journey it was great to feel so relaxed and at home when we arrived. We received a warm welcome on arrival and it being quite late, it was fantastic that we could just put the TV on (with surround sound!), popped something in the oven, opened a bottle of red and relaxed on the comfy sofas. The bed was very comfortable too and we felt we had everything we needed. One of the best things was having the patio doors leading on to the lovely garden from the bedroom and the living area. It was lovely to open them first thing in the morning and hear all the birds singing. We had fantastic weather and were there to visit family - we climbed Snowdon - so didn't get the chance to sit out in the garden unfortunatley but would have loved to just sat out with a book for a few hours! Even though we only stayed two nights and were out enjoying the weather most of the time, we had such a great time staying here and I honestly couldn't fault it if I tried. Very, clean, very pretty with fantastic attention to detail.

"Quality, clean, comfortable - just what we were looking for..."

We were extremely lucky that we managed to get a cancellation and stay with Mel at the Cysgod Bach Cottage. Mel gave us a warm welcome and has a great knowledge of the surrounding area and all of the activities the Snowdonia area has to offer. The accomodation is perfect for a couple with a spacious, clean and comfortable living area. The highlight for us was being able to eat our breakfast on the decking in the cottages secluded garden. We didn't get chance to make use of the hot tub but as we endeavour to return I'm hoping we will do soon.

"Perfect place for a relaxing chilled out weekend"

My partner and i wanted the perfect place for a relaxing weekend and Cysgod y Coed cottage delivered on all our hopes and expectations.We were made to feel very welcome by Mel and she was very helpful with any questions we had before our arrival and whilst we were there.The cottage is beautiful,modern and comfortable.The oven was great as was the television and a very powerful shower.We were very lucky with the weather so we took advantage of the lovely private garden at the back of the cottage.We reluctantly left at the end of our break feeling completley chilled out and vowing to return.Perfect.
