We were a group of 6 adults and 6 children. We had a lovely time and everything we needed was available. The cottages were lovely. The only thing that would make them better is if they were connected in some way to save having to...More

About the neighbourhood
There are many reasons to come and stay here at Bala Cottage Holidays, with Snowdon only a 45 minute drive away, the national park awaits. We have some great mountains on the doorstep too for walking, the Berwyns, Aran and Arenig with side of Bala Lake, again wonderful walks where you will rarely meet anyone! There are also walks for the not so fit, Bala Lake itself has some nice walks near by and and the River Dee (Bala lake being the source). We do provide OS maps at the cottages for the local area, we are happy for you to borrow them, also John and myself have climbed many mountains in the area.

North Wales beaches, well where can we start, we are blessed with some of the best beaches, many with dramatic backdrops of the mountains of Snowdonia, you will always find a place and may...
