A quick break in Easter found us in North Wales near Bala. Bwch-yn-Uchaf is a lovely recently refurbished B&B and campsite. We stayed in the B&B and virtually everywhere looked brand new. We stayed in April 2017 and the standard of décor throughout the accommodation was excellent. From the communal coffee lounge, and breakfast room through to our bedroom the...

The hosts could not do enough for us, the perfect balance of helpful but not in your face. The decor and facilities were modern, clean and high quality. There is a pub that does evening meals a shortish walk down into the village. Just a great B&B that deserves to do well.
