“Modern cottage in Excellent location”
Reviewed 28 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

This is a new detached property with a well equipped kitchen, decent shower, and very comfortable bed.
It is in a quiet location about 1 mile from Bala town centre and has it's own patio and garden with pretty views across a river.
The hosts (Mel and Mick) are very welcoming.
I would heartily recommend a visit.

“Our best cottage rental ever”
Reviewed 14 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We have just returned from a 5 days stay at this idyllic cottage and everything was perfect. Lovely welcoming hosts,spotlessly clean,great location, parking right outside the door,great for people with limited mobility, free Wi-Fi. The cottage has everything one could wish for in a holiday rental, a real home from home. We couldn't find one single thing wrong with this holiday, even the weather was gorgeous. The cottage, although next to the owners' property (which gives one a good sense of security) is very private with a lovely, sunny patio for sitting out (in your nightie as I did every morning !) for your morning coffee, or a glass or wine in the evening. Bala is a nice little town consisting of one long street which is only a 3/4 minute drive away. It has several restaurants/pubs/eating places, a post office and a couple of little supermarkets,all of which you can park right outside for free, you can get anything you need for your stay with no problem there. Mel and Mick are on hand with any more info you might need on any surrounding places of interest. We found the locals very friendly indeed and the roads roundabout easy to travel on to the very many places that you might like to visit. Mount Snowdon is a must on the little train which takes you to the summit and is about just over an hours drive away(don't plan on walking up unless you are very very very fit !). Barmouth is a lovely little seaside town, Bodnant gardens, Portmerrion, Welsh food centre, Betsy co-ed, all really interesting places for not much more than an hours travel. We didn't have enough time to visit all the places we'd have liked to, and we'd definitely like to return to visit the rest.

“A great self-catering base for traveling around North Wales”
Reviewed 8 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We booked the cottage for ten days making day trips all around North Wales from the Llyn Peninsula to Powys Castle. Most drives were an hour or less, but since most of the historic sites that we were interested in didn't open until 10 or later, the drives became travels through the gorgeous countryside.

Mel and Mick are perfect hosts, and the property is just as shown. The shops in town met all our needs. The last day we walked from the cottage to Bala, took the trail around the town, stopped at the Tegid Cafe (Penllyn Leisure Centre) on Bala Lake for lunch, sat in the sun by the lake, and walked back to the cottage along the High Street.

“A highly recommended location”

Cysgod Bach Cottage is a lovely retreat away from the hustle and bustle of every day life. Mel and Mick extend a warm welcome to their guests and have a fountain of knowledge of places to visit during ones stay.The cottage provides very comfortable accommodation and well equipped with all the needs for self catering but good local places to eat if you do not want to cook. Stunning scenery on the edge of Snowdonia Park and fun to travel the narrow gauge railways. This is a haven for peace and quiet. Go there, it is a great place.

“Excellent cottage, excellent hosts, excellent scenery.”
Reviewed 17 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

A lovely, modern little cottage perfect for one or two people. The cottage had everything you could possibly need and more and was very nicely furnished and decorated. There is even a hot tub available for use! A perfect, cosy and relaxing retreat after long days of walking and climbing. Bala is only one mile away on foot and there is pavement all the way in to the town. We would definitely recommend this great value cottage.
