This 17th century farmhouse in Llanuwchllyn, near the waters of Llyn Tegid in Gwynedd, is charm personified. A traditional stone-built farmhouse in a stunning Snowdonia landscape offers a comfortable holiday home for up to 8 people in four bedroom, 2 bathroom, high quality accommodation. There is a good choice of outdoor activities within a short drive; the National White Water Centre is in Bala and lots of places for hill walking, mountain biking and orienteering.
Ideal for visitors hoping to explore the Snowdonia National Park and perhaps catch time for a little fishing for trout on the nearby river Lliw, this rural cottage would be a very good choice of accommodation. All around the farmhouse are fields divided by stone walls; the mountains of Snowdonia in the background. Sit in the hot tub after a day out walking and soothe those tired legs with massaging jets. Use of the hot tub must be pre-booked before arrival.
Although the farmhouse dates back three centuries, it has been renovated to provide a high quality holiday home that still retains character and atmosphere. The old oak beams are still there, the quarry tiled floor and the lovely inglenook fireplace that casts a little cheer into a chilly evening. Stripped pine floors and rugs in the sitting room make it a snug and inviting room to relax in. A second sitting room features a wood burner, leather sofas and quarry tiles. There is plenty of space for a group of guests to spread out and find their own corner.
A most attractive spacious fitted kitchen with a red Rayburn cooker and dining table is another welcoming part of the house.
There is a family bathroom with a curious double ended bath and a free-standing shower cubicle. One of the bedrooms also leads to an en-suite shower room.
The four attractively furnished bedrooms sleep up to eight guests.
Lots of outdoor activities in Snowdonia and places of interest
This Snowdonia cottage has much to offer any family on holiday. It is such a lovely setting that would draw guests back time and again. Go for a stroll around Llyn Tegid or be adventurous and try waterskiing or sailing.
Most guests visit Bala simply because they need to stock up on essentials or would like a jolly around the shops and sights.
Go to the top of Snowdon on a clear day to look across to Ireland and the Isle of Man. Either walk or take the train!
