Description

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.

    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.

    Lovely cottage in a great location! Owner more than happy to help (bringing extra logs free of charge etc). Loved the chickens living in the garden! Would benefit from an information pack about local area etc.

    Very chilly during day as heating restricted and not able to regulate times, having to eat lunch in coat and hat! No alternative heaters provided. Cosy once log fire burning on evening although Minimal supply of logs, and kindling (10 small pieces supplied) despite being told there would be a good supply. no fire lighters available. Water for bath/shower not very hot during day. Cobwebs part of the theme on every beam n wall,even behind beam above bed, close to head/face, didn't see boris the spider though! Cooker dials lost all markings so difficult to work out functions, especially grill, very clean though. Disappointing view from garden bench, overlooking estate of houses and trampolines far from keeping with the lovely cottage/farm type properties.

    Nice cottage hot water useless only get about an inch of hot water. Need to travel at least 30 miles plus to get to anywhere half decent

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your comments. The boiler is a combi boiler so there are no limits on the hot water. It is a shame these guests did not speak to me about it as all that needed to be done was to turn up the thermostat.

    We stayed here in early December 2016- was a great base for us to explore Bala and local area. The kitchen was well equipped (provided oil/salt/pepper/tea/coffee/pint of milk) and had a table/eating area. The living area was very cosy, with a two seater sofa. The decor was quaint with ornaments and boardgames- several books were also available to guests. The DVD player (with several DVDs) and Sky, was a nice addition to the cottage and the free wifi was fast, with a good connection. The bedroom was large and had enough storage space for our 4 day visit. The bathroom was modern with a powerful shower. The fire place was fantastic- we were very grateful to come home to it after days spent walking in the welsh winds! The only thing prevented us giving everything 10/10, was the fact that the hot water only stayed on for a short period of time, meaning we had to have very quick showers and wait 30 minutes or so between each of our showers. Also, there was very limited firewood- we had enough for two nights and then had to buy more from a local garage (and their wood was of poor quality- was very damp and did not burn very well). We'd perhaps advise getting a draught excluder for the kitchen door during the winter months, as we did notice the cold coming through during the evenings. Overall, we had a lovely stay and would recommend this cottage to other couples.

    A lovely place to stay. All the rooms were nicely furnished, it had a well equipped kitchen and a modern bathroom. Unfortunately, the hot water upstairs was a bit hit and miss, we didn't manage to run a hot bath and chances of a warm shower were about 50/50. There is no folder with instructions (was there an immersion switch?) or local hints and tips. This would make settling in much quicker. The cottage was quiet and peaceful, we were pleased to have stayed there.

    Great location. We didn't think the bed or the sofa were very comfortable and we were only left half a toilet roll. The bathroom was quite new which was very nice but there was never enough hot water for a bath. There was no information in the cottage about the area or the cottage itself, just leaflets other guests had left. Overall we enjoyed our weekend in Bala, which is a great town and area for walking, but sorry to say we thought the cottage was a bit dated.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your comments. The loo roll was an oversight as an extra full roll is normally provided. The hot water could have been solved by turning up the thermostat but as I was not made aware at the time I was unable to help.

    The fridge was falling apart, the rail at the top of the stairs was loose, cobwebs everywhere. A file of local amenities, eg, medical, taxis, would have been useful. File to include instructions on electrical goods and recycling.
