Reviews

Fantastic property - presented to a very high standard. Lovely people who own the cottage - very welcoming and helpful. Will certainly be booking again.

Mr Mark Reddiough,

Property was fantastic- really high standard and very comfortable to stay in.

Mr Mark Johnson,

Overall excellent service and hosts, the house was amazing and the location was awesome. Very cute town within driving distance to most of Snowdonia’s scenic spots.

Nick from UK,

We had a great stay in Best Of Wales's place. Everything was easy to arrange and the accommodation was delightful, lovely and cozy for two people. If you can get there in the winter, Lake Bala looks beautiful in the snow!

Jack from UK,

A beautiful cottage finished and styled to a very high standard. We were very impressed and really appreciated the warm welcome from Manon and Gareth. The location could not be better, just at the bottom of the high street but it feels like you are much more remote than that. The lake is just 5 mins walk away as well. I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone wanting a relaxing luxurious stay in a great location, we will definitely be coming back here! Thank you again Manon and Gareth

Sally from UK,

I loved everything about this cottage. Clean, cosy, beautifully furnished and great hosts, very attentive.

Aneesa from Lancashire,

The cottage was even more lovely than we expected. It's so modern and stylish, just what we were hoping for. It's been a lovely weekend having some quiet, relaxing time. Will definitely be back with family or friends so that they can see how wonderful the place is too.

Ashleigh and Javk,

Me and my husband have had a lovely, relaxing, enjoyable stay. All the facilities are of impeccable standard. Although the weather was wet and windy, the scenic views definitely made up for it. Definitely a weekend to remember. The host have been very friendly and approachable. Thank you for the tasty Welsh Cakes. Have done a lovely job at the cottage.

Aneesa and Irfan from Manchester,

We thought the property was brilliant - the owners have clearly put in a lot of thought and care into making it a welcoming holiday cottage. It really was the perfect place for a few days break. The booking process was very smooth and the property was perfect - everything you need for a few days away from home.

Hannah from Kent,

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Côr Llew Coch. The cottage is beautiful and perfect for a stay in Bala. Manon was so welcoming and it is clear that a lot of time and thought has gone into the design of this cottage. We'd love to come back with family and have next door as well. Thank you.

Hannah, Mark and Martha,

Really great place, lovely location and the place was very fresh and modern.
