About the neighbourhood
Bala in the Snowdownia National Park is ideally placed to explore both north and mid Wales. It provides easy access to fantastic scenery from the doorstep. The mountains of Snowdon and Cadair Idris are an easy drive away, beaches at Barmouth, Portmadoc and Shell Island, Castles such as Harlech, and places to explore such as Llangollen, Portmeirion, the Isle of Anglesey and (over the border) the Roman city of Chester. The scenery is outstanding, the air is clean and fresh and traffic jams are unheard of! Just minutes away are all the activities any discerning activity seeker could wish for. Clean fresh air and stunning scenery. Breathtaking scenery for simply walking and exploring the countryside, Bala Golf Club, National White Water Centre for white water rafting, The Get Wet Adventure ...
Getting around
you can travel to the other end of Bala lake via the Bal steam railway whose station is a 5 minute walk from the farmhouse. Otherwise we would reccommend a car though there are walking and bike trails as well as watersports available walking distance from the farmhouse
