About this location

The North Wales region

Best known for the stunning Snowdonia National Park, this region of Wales is the ideal destination for families or couples in search of a walking holiday either in the mountains or by the sea – from the dramatic peaks, lakes and waterfalls of the National Park to the fine sandy beaches of Abersoch and Colwyn Bay. History lovers can visit the magnificent castles of Caernafon, Criccieth, Conwy and many more, and young and old alike will love a trip on the Welsh Highland Railway. Also worth a visit is the pretty clifftop village of Portmeirion in Gwynedd.


LLANUWCHLLYN & BALA Bythynnod Bryn Caled are located in a stunning location overlooking the picturesque village of Llanuwchllyn and the Aran mountain. Llanuwchllyn is a mile away and a lovely walk along the public footpath along the river Lliw. In the village a visit to the Eagles Inn is a must for excellent home made food and a cold beer - the traditional Welsh Sunday lunch is a treat not to be missed. As this area is a walkers paradise you may wish to go for a long leisurely walks along the public footpaths from the village or even hop on the little steam train from the village to the town of Bala.

The bustling market town of Bala lies within the beautiful Snowdonia National Park and is located at the head of Llyn Tegid, Bala’s famous lake, which is the largest natural lake in Wales and home to a unique fish called the Gwyniaid

The town of Bala is about 10 minutes drive away and has a number of good quality restaurants and pubs. Bala is a small town but has a lot to offer any visitors. Bala is also within travelling distance of some great shopping and historical towns such as Chester, Ruthin, Llangollen and Porthmadog Bala.

There is a Golf at 5.6 miles away in Bala.

Thank you for your lovely review. A mirror to be placed downstairs in the hall has been ordered and the cooker has a new grill pan! I really hope that we will have a chance to welcome you again in the future.

"Heaven in the Welsh hills"

During our visit we were lucky enough to stay in the barn for 4 nights and the cottage for 3. Firstly wow what a great location, peaceful, picturesque and still handy for trips out and about, Bala lake and the immediate surroundings are so pretty you needn't go much further if you don't want to. We stay in a lot of cottages and these were as good as any and better than most we have experienced. We like luxury, after all holidays are a treat! We weren't left wanting. Immaculate properties, out door hot tubs, elegant interiors, and totally spotless. Both properties had all mod cons, flat screen TV,s, fully equipped stylish kitchens, even a fully stocked honesty bar with wine!! In brief the properties are A+++.

Now for the thing that made this an outstanding experience for us. Our hostess Sioned was wonderful. Nothing was too much trouble. She was attentive but not intrusive. She sent us lots of emails as requested before we even got there with helpful info re eating out and the surrounding area. The welcome was warm, fresh flowers from the garden in our cottage and some cake to greet us, all done very tastefully. It was our anniversary when we visited and Sioned treated us to a bottle of wine the day we were leaving.

We had a great time sun bathing in our private garden, endless dips in the hot tub and relaxing BBQ's. One thing you have to do when it's cold and dark at night. Put the light on the hot tub and relax with a glass of something fizzy, looking at the stars surrounded by,...well nothing! Magical. We will definitely be back and we would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for that something a bit special!

"Beautiful location, fabulous accomodation and welcoming host. Perfection."

A perfect break away for our honeymoon. Our cottage (one of three) was very well equip, clean and tidy. On arrival there was a home made cake, tea/coffee/sugar & fresh milk provided, which was a lovely touch. The hot tub (usage included in the rental price) was brilliant, and we made sure -even in October- we were in it every day.
The owner was very welcoming, if we needed anything then we knew we could approach the farm house, but there was no need, as everything had been well planned -leaflets for local attractions, places of interest and take aways were in the welcome pack.
It was also lovely to read the guest book, as all other guests were impressed with the cottage, and added their own hints and tips on good local pubs/ restaurants and take outs that they had been to.
This is on my 'Must Go Again' list of holidays!! Thank you S.W. for you hospitality.

"Perfect: fabulous accommodation, views, hosts and location!"

We absolutely loved our stay at Bythynnod Bryn Caled Cottages, in Carreg y Nant. We stayed 6 nights and had the most relaxing break. The cottage itself is fabulous, very comfortable, stylish and clean with wonderful views. Great facilities including wi-fi and good TV package. The garden and hot tub were excellent and enjoyed daily, and our host Sioned was extremely welcoming, friendly and attentive. The resident dog (Bobbi), horses, cows and cat were also a nice bonus:-)

Thoroughly recommended to all - we will definitely be back and if you want to explore Snowdonia, this is the place to stay!

"What a lovely place in a fab spot!"

We stayed in Carreg y Nant, with our friends, the cottage was immaculate and very well equipped. The bedrooms were very comfortable and the bathrooms excellent.

The outside space was great with the hot tub ready to ease your aching legs after walking the wonderful surrounding hills. Sioned was very helpful and made us all welcome. including our dog.

Watching the bird life whilst sipping our evening tipple with the sun setting over the hills was a great end to the day.

Would I stay again, most definately!
