This beautiful Bala self catering cottage with hot tub facilities (exclusively for you) has everything you need within a 5 minute walk. Tastefully furnished with a modern touch, this barn conversion benefits from a unique position at the edge of town. Its setting within an enclosed yard (previously a farm yard) creates a real sense of privacy - it's like enjoying the benefits of the countryside without the responsibility of having to drive everywhere. 500 meters from Bala Lake with all its watersports, across the road from the town’s small, traditional cinema and less than a 5 minute walk from all the market town’s restaurants, cafes, shops and pubs.
A great, central base to explore North Wales with picturesque walks, white water rafting and a narrow gauge railway being just some of the activities that can be enjoyed on your doorstep.
*There may be some building work taking place on the Owner's property which is situated in the courtyard, but disruption will be kept to a minimum*

We had a great stay and Mannon and Gareth were great. Despite the weather we even managed to relax in the hot tub. Views were fab.
This beautiful Bala self catering, semi-detached cottage is brilliantly located. Whilst being within a 5 minute walk of all the town’s facilities, it also benefits from the privacy of an enclosed yard that was previously used by the owners as a farm yard. This somehow manages to create a calm countryside setting even though you are more or less in the centre of town.
The ‘homely’ Welsh market town of Bala offers a wide range of shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs. There is also a traditional cinema across the road and a Leisure Centre (fitness room, indoor swimming pool and slide) just 500 meters away. Some of the best pubs in town include The White Lion, Y Plas Coch and Y Cwrt (all within a 5 minute walk).
Amongst the best places to eat (all within walking distance) are the White Lion Hotel, Y Plas Coch, Plas yn Dre, Bala Spice and Y Cwrt. Also worth a short drive is Yr Eagles in Llanuwchllyn (5 miles) and Lake Vyrnwy Restaurant (13 miles). However, because you’re on holiday in a cottage with hot tub facilities, you might prefer to have a takeaway delivered to your door every night.
Regarded by many as the adventure capital of Wales, Bala offers world class watersports provision, from Bala Lake (500 meters away) with a range of activities such as canoeing, sailing, windsurfing and gorge walking to the National White Water Rafting Centre (4 miles). There is also a high speed go-carting circuit in Cerrigydrudion (12 miles), the famous Zip Wire and Bounce Below (18 miles) and numerous other attractions such as Tree Tops Adventure in Betws y Coed and Coed y Brenin Mountain Biking Centre and Go Ape offering great days out.
If you prefer to relax on holiday, there are numerous picturesque mountain and lakeside walks nearby, not to mention the cycle route and scenic narrow gauge railway along Llyn Tegid (Bala Lake), the largest natural lake in Wales. Or what about a night out in the cinema across the road or simply relaxing at your cottage with hot tub, wine and a good book. Your Bala self catering cottage also provides a great central base to explore the whole of Snowdonia and North Wales. Llechwedd Slate Caverns (18 miles), Portmeirion (25miles) and the Welsh Highland Railway (27 miles) are just some of many highly recommended days out.
