A beautiful pair of Welsh stone cottages dating back to the 18th century retaining charm and character with exposed stone walls, beams and wood-burning stoves

A beautiful Welsh stone holiday cottage, one of a pair, dating back to the 18th century, retaining charm and character with exposed stone walls, beams and wood-burning stoves. It stands proud in the village of Llanfor, just outside the popular tourist area of Bala with a lake ideal for water sports, the white water rafting centre and miniature steam railway that chuffs its way along the side of the lake. This excellent base is very central for enjoying north Wales, mid Wales and the Cheshire/Shropshire borderlands. To the west of the town, head towards Dolgellau, a small market town, home to the famous Cader Idris, Cymer Abbey, Coed-y-Brenin Mountain Bike Centre and Mawddach Trail, the Cambrian Coast and Portmeirion. Head north to the majestic Mount Snowdon, passing Blaenau Ffestiniog, the slate caverns and Ffestiniog Railway, Betws-y-Coed and Swallow Falls then on beyond to Conwy and Caernarfon, both famed for their castles. Heading east takes you towards Llangollen with its horse-drawn barges, canal boat trips, the motor museum, River Dee, abbey and steam railway along to either Chester or Chirk Castle and Erddig (both NT). Journeying south takes you on a scenic trip through the Berwyn Mountain range towards Lake Vyrnwy, Pistyll Rhaeadr (Wales’ largest waterfall), and Powys Castle (NT). Shops and pubs 1 mile.

Ground floor: Living/dining room. Kitchen. First floor: 1 double bedroom. Bathroom with shower and toilet.

Woodburner in living room included. Oil central heating, electricity, bed linen and towels included. Cot. Freesat TV. DVD. Microwave. Use of washing machine. Wi-fi. Patio and furniture. Shared grassed area. Parking (1 car). No smoking.

    Great little cottage, loved the layout and feel, full of charm and absolute feel of home from home. Wood burner great, kitchen great, tv dvd great, shower great, bed great. Little sofa not so great, we bought a throw over as the sofa was cold and too small for getting comfortable. Recommend a slightly bigger material model but appreciate the space restrictions. Not a real negative more constructive criticism. My score of 10 remains, great little base to explore from, whilst looking forward to the return at end of day.

    We had a fantastic time at Henry Bach. The location was perfect for walking and clusevrnoygh to make trips into Bala easy. Other reviews mentioned the cottage being dirty. This was not the case when we went but there were lots of spiders' webs around fixtures and fittings. Not a big issue for us. A lovely cottage which I would recommend.

    accomodation was difficult to find off the main track. next to a housing estate. Banged my head several times in the bedroom on the beam. additional cost, more than usual for the dog, who I didn't take in the end. I have stayed in some really nice hotels for less money. Bala itself, there is very little there and got pestered when out and about on my own. Given I am 55 years old not 20.

    I've been here 3 times and I'll be going again. A few minor inconveniences, like no kindling or firelighters luckily I was supplied with both. The place is clean, quiet and relaxing. Bala is about a mile away. I could quite happily live there.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner:- This is the first time we have had a comment like this. The average score for cleanliness is 7. We are concerned that your didn’t contact us on arrival as we would have made every effort to rectify any problems.

    It had everything to make it a cosy cottage, heating, hot water, real stove , wifi, clean towels etc, all were very good, but we felt it needed a very good clean!! Its perhaps the standards we live by, but that would be the only criticism. We did in fact go and buy some cleaning items so we could just go over certain areas, before settling in. Apart from that , it was fine. Thankyou

    Cottage was cosy but quite dark. Would have been nice to have some instructions for the cooker as all markings were worn off the dials.

    We really enjoyed our stay. The facilities were brilliant and the cottage was very pretty and quiet. Our only gripes were that the sofa and the bed were very uncomfortable - especially the bed. We had to go out and purchase a duvet to put under the sheet in order to have some comfort from the springs sticking in us. Otherwise, the stay was ideal for our needs and if a better quality mattress was provided, we would stay there again.

    Llanfor is a good place to stay being not too far from places to visit in Snowdonia National Park. There are plenty of things to do locally and cafes and restaurants. Also, it has direct access to Taith Tegid and other local walks.

    Second time at this cosy cottage, plenty of hot water and heating. We stayed 4 nights, not sure if wood for the burner is included in the price, there was a tub of wood on arrival, the rest we bought from a local shop. Lots of walks and activities to get involved with, great location for the dog. Will definitely go back for a third time.
