Farmhouse
Detached self-catered farmhouse close to Llanuwchllyn south of Lake Bala. It is both spacious and cosy, well furnished and equipped, with magnificent views of the lakes and mountains. Set high above the Afon Dyfrdwy and the bustle of life, there are mountains and lakes on the doorstep, with beaches, castles, watersports, riding and golf nearby. Inside, the farmhouse has been refurbished, has full central heating and provides superbly appointed holiday accommodation. There is a boot room leading into a large dining room with a well equipped kitchen beyond and an adjoining sitting room with a multi-fuel stove. Stairs lead up to three double bedrooms, one with a king sized bed and the others each with twin single beds. There are quilts and pillows for winter or summer use for all beds.

Please also bring your own towels and tea towels. There is a large bathroom with walk-in electric shower and a deep roll top bath. Outside there is a secure garden, with a patio area to the side of the property and a lawned area behind.More

Thank you for your review and please do come back at a less stormy time. We find that sitting in the garden with the "world beneath your feet" is a truly calming experience.

Thank you. We agree that a summer evening in the garden with mountains all around does make the place rather special. We'll be starting some 'renewal' in the early autumn, so do come back to see what we've done!

Thank you for your comments. We will continue to work to ensure that, after their days out around Snowdonia, our guests are delighted to return to this peaceful hideaway. There must be many excuses for a further visit to this part of Wales.

About the neighbourhood
There is a wealth of outdoor activities on the doorstep of this Snowdonia farmhouse. Lake Bala (Llyn Tegid) is the largest natural lake in Wales, where watersports of all types can be enjoyed with or without expert instruction. Nearby, the National White Water, Canolfan Tryweryn offers white knuckle rafting and much more. There's also rock climbing, gorge walking, canyoning, pony trekking, quad biking to mountain biking in the stunning Coed Y Brenin Forest trails and more! If all this sounds all a bit like too much hard work, why not take a gentle stroll or drive and take in some of the most breathtaking scenery in the United Kingdom.
Getting around
Although a car is almost essential, there is a regular bus service between Wrexham and Barmouth that passes within 10 minutes walk of the house.
