Wonderful for couples or a family with 2 children. Just east and high in the hills above Bala and at one end of our isolated "Long-house" is this cosy self contained cottage. Stunning views from over 1000 ft with the use of our gardens and also our lake for fishing, swimming and boating. We have over 600 acres of moors, hill and mountain countryside. Large screen and projector for films and woodburning stove in sitting room.

Beautiful views. Cosy and relaxing space. Very nice welcoming touches from the very friendly hosts, including fresh bread/eggs on arrival and lots of wood for the fire on a cold night. We'll look forward to returning.
