Lovely Bungalow, well equipped and everything we needed for our break, all that was missing was the sunshine. Would definitely book again with no problem.

Mr H,

Lovely house, and location. Spotlessly clean and very well equipped. Owners were very helpful and friendly. Would highly recommend.

Mr F,

What a wonderful cottage, it had everything we needed. The cottage was very clean and the beds were comfy. We enjoyed having the sheep as our neighbours. If you get a chance to go, you should!

Mrs I,

Excellent house, very well equipped. Very clean and tidy. Exceeded expectations.

Lovely house with everything you need for a very comfortable stay. Fantastic view of rolling fields (and sheep)! Ample parking too and sooo quiet! Owner very helpful and let us know we can contact her should we have any problems.

Mrs C,


Detached cottage, set within its own peaceful, enclosed garden and enjoying far-reaching countryside views. Within half a mile, the picturesque village of Parc stands on the banks of the River Llafar and provides a starting point for numerous walks and a cycle route. The cottage provides easy access to the great facilities scattered throughout this delightful area.

The nearest pub restaurant, Eagles Inn, can be found at Llanuwchllyn (3.5 miles), also home to a village shop. The bustling market town of Bala (4 miles) offers a wide range of amenities, including a small supermarket, independent shops and cafes, pubs and restaurants. There is also a traditional cinema and a Leisure Centre.

Bala lies within the beautiful Snowdonia National Park and is located at the head of Llyn Tegid, Bala’s famous lake, which is the largest natural lake in Wales and home to a unique fish called the Gwyniad, a relic of the Ice Age. Renowned as a centre for great watersports including fishing, sailing, canoeing, windsurfing and whitewater rafting, Bala is also the headquarters of the narrow gauge Bala Lake Railway. The town itself is steeped in history as highlighted along the Town Walk. Surrounded by the wonderful Berwyn Mountains on one side and the beautiful Snowdonia Mountain Range on the other, this is a mecca for climbing, walking, mountain biking and many other outdoor activities such as Zip World and Bounce Below (20 miles).

An ideal location for touring all of North and Mid Wales including the stunning Cambrian Bay Coast with the six-mile long Harlech Beach, overlooked by its majestic medieval castle. Alternatively take a trip to the nearby popular towns of Dolgellau (16 miles), with its monthly farmer’s market, or Betws-y-Coed, famous for its cascading waterfalls and enchanting river pools. With an abundance of attractions and activities throughout the area, this is a truly wonderful part of Wales that caters for all interests.
