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.

    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.

    Fabulous holiday. Cosy welcoming cottage, comfortably furnished and spotless throughout. Welcoming tea, coffee and biscuits was an unexpected surprise.

    Very low ceilings with mind your head signs. We are a tall family so no good for us. Well equipped kitchen. Lovely beds and pillows. Damaged car sills on reversing into drive as instructed by owner. He needs to take a lump of concrete out of drive so low profile cars can get in.

    This cottage is in a great location for seeing Snowdonia with many things right on your door step, including the Bala lake railway. The cottage itself is very well equiped out and comfortable. We will most certainly be booking this cottage again.
