We took our 3 children and 2 dogs away for half term. We did not expect amazing weather in Wales in Feb, but we did not expect storm Doris either! Regardless, the cottage is so cosy and warm, and the walls were so thick, we...More

Thank you for your review and please do come back at a less stormy time. We find that sitting in the garden with the "world beneath your feet" is a truly calming experience.

What an amazing place. Lovely house, remember it is old so not perfect!! Very clean and easy to find. Never stayed anywhere with such fabulous views. It feels so remote yet is near to the A494. Great wildlife right outside the door and the wild...More

Thank you. We agree that a summer evening in the garden with mountains all around does make the place rather special. We'll be starting some 'renewal' in the early autumn, so do come back to see what we've done!

About the neighbourhood
There is a wealth of outdoor activities on the doorstep of this Snowdonia farmhouse. Lake Bala (Llyn Tegid) is the largest natural lake in Wales, where watersports of all types can be enjoyed with or without expert instruction. Nearby, the National White Water, Canolfan Tryweryn offers white knuckle rafting and much more. There's also rock climbing, gorge walking, canyoning, pony trekking, quad biking to mountain biking in the stunning Coed Y Brenin Forest trails and more! If all this sounds all a bit like too much hard work, why not take a gentle stroll or drive and take in some of the most breathtaking scenery in the United Kingdom.
Getting around
Although a car is almost essential, there is a regular bus service between Wrexham and Barmouth that passes within 10 minutes walk of the house.

How to get there
Railway: Wrexham: 50.0 km
Take the road for Bala in North Wales. Go through Bala in the direction of Dolgellau. 6 miles from Bala on the A494 you find the small village of Llanuwchllyn. Notice the filling station on your right; do not turn left into the village but stay on the A494. A further 1.3 miles from the filling station, just past a lay-by and on a sweeping right bend in the road slow down! At the small chapel on your right (at Rhosdylluan) you need to turn left and across a small metal bridge on to a single track lane. After about a quarter of a mile along the lane the road forks. Take the right fork on to a track up the hill (across another small wooden bridge). At the end of the track you will find Llechwedd Fwyalchen and a magical world.
