Ty Beic Holiday Cottages - The Stable

Holiday Rental House -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 2
Bala, Snowdonia National Park, North Wales, Wales
Ty Beic is two one bedroom holiday cottages perched on a hill above the tiny hamlet of Sarnau near Bala on the edge of Snowdonia National Park. These two restored stone barns are a magical place to stay all year round providing a perfect base for exploring North Wales.

The Stable is at the west end of the main house (Ty Hen) and was, as its name suggests, once a stable. We have converted this into a stunning, dog friendly, one bedroom holiday cottage furnished to a high standard with a certain offbeat charm.

The character of the original farm building has been retained with exposed beams and stone walls but with the technology to keep you snug in the winter and cool in the summer. The underfloor heating, thick stone walls and double glazed oak windows keep the cottage warm through the coldest winter – making them enticing places to...

This was our second visit to Ty Beic and we had an absolutely brilliant time celebrating my birthday. This time we stayed in The Barn as we didn't have our dog with us. Definitely our favourite! As before, it was absolutely immaculate, with well equipped...More

About the neighbourhood
Ty Beic in the hamlet of Sarnau, 4 miles north east of Bala. Bala has everything you would expect to find in a small market town including banks and ATMs, Post Office, pharmacy, two small supermarkets, butchers, greengrocers and numerous pubs, cafes and restaurants and an excellent craft beer shop. Slightly further away (5 miles) is Tyddyn Llan, a Michelin starred restaurant in Llandrillo, and for spectacular views as well as delicious food we would recommend the Lake Vyrnwy Hotel (10 miles away). Our 'local' is the Bryntirion Inn, 3 miles away in the village of Llandderfel. It's very friendly with great beer and good food. In the same village is Pale Hall, a country house hotel and fine dining restaurant.
Getting around
This is a rural community with very limited public transport so a car is a necessity. Trains from Birmingham, Shrewsbury, Chester and Cardiff stop at Ruabon and there is a bus service to Barmouth and Wrexham from Bala. There are three local taxi firms.
