Welsh Country Cottages

An inspiring collection of properties chosen for their character, luxury and heritage, all graded 4 star and above..


A romantic retreat just 200 yards from a lake, and 3 miles from the market town of Bala which offers most facilities.

These adjoining stone-built properties sit in a prominent position in the tiny hamlet of Llangower on the south side of Llyn Tegid, the largest natural lake in Wales. With views towards the lake, the shoreline is only about 200 yards away, they provide an enchanting holiday location for those looking for a relaxing stay or ample opportunities for the more energetic. The Grade II Georgian listed Rector’s House (ref OP7) was home to the rector of the ancient chapel at Llangower which was built in the 13th-century but modernised at about the same time as the rectory was built. Retaining its character, the house catches the sun from all directions, with glimpses of the lake, valley and mountains. Rectory Cottage (ref IWA) has a romantic feel with its wood-burning stove and views. On the southern edge of Snowdonia National Park, this is an ideal place for walking, sailing or just lazing. The well-known market town of Bala is a short drive away (3 miles) where most facilities are available including several good pubs and restaurants, a supermarket, butcher, bakers, post office, chemist, curiosity and gift shops. The local leisure centre provides swimming and fitness facilities and there is a small ten-pin bowling alley nearby and single-screen cinema in the town. The coast at Barmouth is 40-minute drive, and the towns of Dolgellau and Portmadoc, both a 25-minute trip away, provide interest for all the family. Shop and pub 3 miles.

Living room with wood-burning stove. Fitted kitchen/dining room. Double bedroom. Steep open-tread stairs to first floor: Twin bedroom. Bathroom with bath, shower attachment, shower cubicle and toilet.

    We had a really great stay at the cottage! The place is very comfortable, cosy and was perfectly clean and well equipped. Plus, we were welcomed by a fire that the owner had prepared in the woodburning stove shortly before our arrival.

    We had a fantastic week in the cottage. Away from traffic, noise and the stresses of life. The cottage had everything you need and more. Perfectly placed for exploring North Wales and great to come back to. Log fire was a great addition after a long walk. Comfy sofa and bed, separate shower and a bath to soak in. We had our dog with us and a walk up the lane on the morning with stunning views was a great morning start. (We didn't walk on the suggested walk from the cottage as I have a cow phobia).

    I can safely say this is the best self catering booking we have ever made. Cost lounge, comfortable beds, clean bathroom with separate bath, and full kitchen with everything you could need. Gorgeous views, tastefully decorated, stunning garden. Sideboard stuffed full of games and puzzles and reccomendations for restaurants and walks. Even had a baby gate installed at the top of the stairs, which was fantastic as we were travelling with our 20 month old. Downsides were difficult to use heaters, which were only a downside because it was a hot weekend, and the only bathroom/toilet was at the top of the very steep staircase, which couldn't be shut off from out toddler. Didn't really detract from the holiday though.

    A sweet little cottage for a short break away from everything. The cottage had a great kitchen fully equipped and a really cosey lounge with a great wood burner. The bedrooms were comfortable and a great bathroom with the choice of a bath and shower. The down sides were: The owner had to take the fire extinguishers for a check during our 3 nights stay, which I did find a little odd considering this could have been a bit better organised rather than being disturbed on our first night. I also managed to smoke out the downstairs as the damper on the wood burner was closed off, however this was soon rectified by the owner who was staying in the other part of the property. We also felt that the economy 7 heating was not adequate for the cold weather and there was not very much hot water, enough for a small bath just under half full (even when putting on the hot water booster). The downstairs bedroom was very cold when going to bed and there is a extractor fan in the bedroom that rattles all night if windy. This may sound picky but when paying for a high end cottage these little things do stand out. Beware also as the drive is very tight to manoeuvre, we have a large 4x4 which we did find a bit tricky. If you have a low slung car it may be a bit of a nightmare to get on drive for the cottage.

    Superb little cottage, in a great location to explore North Wales. It provided the remoteness we were after, whilst being easy enough to explore the coast, the slate mines and snowdon.
