The village of Llandrillo has a local pub, the Dudley Arms, plus 2 great places to eat - the Berwyn Restaurant has fabulous reviews and is known for great home-cooked food, especially the desserts, and of course Tyddyn Llan which is in The Good Food Guide and has a well deserved Michelin Star.

A little further is elegant and luxurious Pale Hall which welcomes non-residents for breakfast, morning coffee, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner. What a treat!

This luxury holiday cottage is perfectly situated for exploring Snowdonia and North Wales.

The River Dee provides a perfect setting, providing excellent fishing opportunities.

Guest can fly fish for Brown Trout, Grayling, Sea Trout and Salmon (subject to season rules). As well as fishing on your own bank, this holiday cottage is only 18 miles from Llyn Brenig, a 920 acre stillwater lake with an international reputation for quality fly fishing. Rentals include a fishing permit for approx 150 metres of the River Dee, beyond this other fishing permits are available for a small charge on request.

Five miles away is Bala Lake (Llyn Tegid in Welsh) - an impressive lake (4 miles long by 1 mile wide) which is surrounded by rolling hills. Kayaks, dinghies and other types of craft are available for rent. And of course the National White Water Rafting Centre is located at Frongoch near Bala.

Bala itself is a pleasant tourist town with a good variety of shops, cafes and pubs. Bala Lake Railway runs steam trains on a 9 mile long, 2ft narrow gauge track on the eastern shore of the lake, from Llanuwchllyn to Bala town. Passengers enjoy excellent views of the lake and its surrounding scenery of forests, rolling hills and the nearby mountains - Arenig Fawr, Aran Benllyn and Aran Fawddwy.

There are a number of golf courses in the area, including Bala and Dolgellau. Harlech, on the west coast, sports one of the finest golf courses in the world, The Royal St. David's. A short drive is the Glan Gors Park Karting Circuit, the longest karting circuit in the North West and Wales.

For history lovers there are 2 famous religious sites nearby - Rhug Chapel and Llangar Church. Rhug is a rare example of a little-altered private C17th chapel, the plain exterior belies with riches within - angels, elaborate paintings, ghoulish  skeleton. Llangar to Corwen just after Cynwyd, a small medieval building in an idyllic setting overlooking the confluence of the Dee and Alwen rivers. Inside it takes you back to another age with many ancient features including extensive C15th wall paintings, old beams, box pews, pulpit and minstrels gallery.

Go fishing, bird watching and spot the otters - all on your doorstep then relax in your own private hot tub.

Enjoy a griddle fried egg and bacon batch on the terrace at the Rhug Farm Shop on the A5 - delicious.
