The North Wales region

The hamlet of Rhosygwaliau is situated at the confluence of the rivers Hirnant (meaning long stream) and Cymerig. The immediate area has lots of mediaeval history and heritage.

Bala Lake (known locally as Llyn Tegid) is famous for its range of watersports- but local bye-laws prevent motor boats so the foreshore is not deafened by the roar of speeding engines.

Fishing is popular- trout, perch, grayling and pike are often caught, but Gwyniad, a fish found only in the depths of this lake - and linked to prehistoric creatures are rarely seen.

Walking and cycling locally are a wonderful way of exploring the rural lanes and paths, and by car you are rarely more than an hour away from any North Wales attraction:

Cardigan Bay Coast and sandy beaches.

Castles of North Wales

Narrow gauge railways (Bala and beyond).

North Wales coast.


Bala is instantly recognisable by the tree-lined, broad High street that stretch towards the four mile long lake, at the South Western side of the town.

The main street is always busy with a multitude of cafes, restaurants, traditional trading shops including two award winning butchers.

Two miles north of Bala is The White Water Centre,- great for an adrenaline boosting ride down the rapids in an inflatable raft.

The lake near town is a little more peaceful, and used during the summer months by sailors, windsurfers, canoeists or just for paddling or splashing about -the eastern end of the lake is shallow and safe.

Bala golf course is located half a mile from the town centre, and due to its elevated location has absolutely amazing views of the lake and surrounding area.

"Perfect cottage for couples"

This lovely little cottage is perfect for couples. It's in a great location for exploring Wales. There are plenty of leaflets to help you decide where to go. The cottage is situated just outside the town of Bala where there are two supermarkets and plenty of pubs and restaurants. The lake is lovely and we had a great barbecue there one sunny evening. The cottage has an adequate kitchen area and a lounge area. The bedroom is large with a double and single bed and has views out over the beautiful garden. We found the bed a bit too hard but others might like that. The bathroom is perfectly adequate with a shower, sink and loo. We loved the decking area outside the cottage and had our breakfasts and evening meals there when the weather allowed. The owners are lovely and leave you alone but are on hand if needed. This is a basic cottage with everything you need in a lovely location and is great value for money. Best suited to couples or a family with just one child.
