We had an absolutely amazing stay. Cottage is so lovely, comfortable, and amazing facilities. Bala has been delightful to stay in and even went to a local game. The hosts helped me plan the perfect proposal by suggesting a place to do it and decorating the cottage for me. 10/10

Past Customer,

Although it was a short stay we really enjoyed our time at this beautiful cottage. Luckily the weather was on our side and we filled our days with some amazing walks not to far from here. Highly recommend the all trails app to see what's about. Bala is also such a lovely place to wonder round and has some great food. Thank you. We shall return.

Past Customer,

We came here for a relaxing break away, one to recharge our batteries and two to celebrate my 60th birthday. The cottage is adorable and very much felt like home. The little touches made us feel "xmassy" and put us in the spirit. The owners you have thought of everything there was nothing missing to make our stay perfect. We certainly be returning.

Past Customer,

We had a lovely time during our stay in Bala. The cottage is beautiful and cosy. All the additional touches are very appreciated, everything we needed for a short break. We can't wait to return hopefully in the summer! Thank you

Past Customer,

Me and my partner came here for a relaxing break in the countryside. The cottage is very cosy and keeps plenty of heat. You have everything you could possibly need as well as access to a handful of shops and restaurants. Pistyll rhaeadr is a must visit only 40 min drive away and hiking trails are definitely worth a visit. Would love to return soon. Thank you

Past Customer,

First class,so pleased with our choice and would go back again...

Mr F,

This cottage is amazing! It’s super cosy but also has a modern twist. It’s really comfy and has all the bits and pieces you need in it. The owners are really lovely too and said hello when we arrived. The location is great, at the end of the high street so it’s nice and quiet but still really close to shops and restaurants. We had a wonderful stay!

Miss V,

Well situated, comfortable property. Home from home.

Previous Customer,

Gareth and Manon were lovely hosts / owners and provided lots of advice on where to go. Lovely group of properties really close to the town and the lake of Bala.

Mr T,

Lovely accommodation near all pubs shops and lake.

Mrs D,

I had a great stay at Cor Llew Coch. A brilliant location from which to explore Snowdonia. The flat itself is very modern and well appointed with everything you need for a comfortable stay. The on site hosts were charming and very welcoming - nothing was too much trouble. I would thoroughly recommend.

Mr W,

The property was exactly what we expected & more. The owner made a point of coming to greet us and gave us some recommendations which was lovely. We were very happy with the location & our stay. Would definitely return in the future!!

Mr H,

Very luxurious and comfortable property, spotlessly clean with everything you’d need for a enjoyable break away.

Mr R,

A very comfortable, well presented property offering a good standard of accomodation. Very clean and modern, very comfortable with a good standard of equipment.

Mr T,

Our stay at Côr Llew Coch was outstanding! Perfect little break away from the hustle and bustle of the South of England, beautiful location surrounded by miles of scenic footpaths! Just a stones throw from beautiful Bala Lake which makes watching the sunsets just perfect! The owners were so kind and accommodating, they even provided us with Takeaway menus for our lazy evening after climbing Mount Snowdon! We will be back! Thank you!!!

Miss H,


Located within an enclosed yard on the outskirts of Bala market town, Côr Llew Coch offers a private setting with the benefits of being within walking distance to cafes, restaurants, shops and bars. Part of a stunning conversion of barns on what was previously the owners' family farm, you also have the option of bringing family or friends along to the two other 5 star cottages on site (sleeping 4 and 6).

The lovely Welsh market town of Bala offers a wide range of amenities, including a traditional cinema and a quirky bottle shop and tap room where you can enjoy Welsh beers. There is also a Leisure Centre with a fitness room, indoor swimming pool and slide. Amongst the best places to eat (all within walking distance) are the White Lion Hotel, Y Plas Coch, Bistro Y Cyfnod, Plas yn Dre, Bala Spice and Y Cwrt.

Bala is home to Llyn Tegid (Bala Lake), the largest natural lake in Wales, with a range of watersports such as canoeing, sailing and windsurfing. You can also enjoy a steam train ride along its shores, all the way to Llanuwchllyn and back, as well as a circular route that's suitable for walking and cycling.
