My partner & I have just had a 5 night stay at this quiet & secluded B & B near Bala in Wales. It was a rush decision to go but fortunately Lou Robertson the owner managed to fit us in at short notice in her farmhouse residence that had once been a barn but is now a magnificent cosy place to hide away from the rat race our world is now.
It would take a long time to find somewhere as delightful as this again so maybe we'll be back next year eh Lou???
The secluded residence was all we could hope for & more, a short walk to the river Dee or an equally short walk to the forest behind the farmhouse was but 2 things to do. At dusk, if you were quiet & patient you could watch the otters play under the bridge or the fish rise in the river, maybe even take your rod & have a spot of fishing even yourself?
The access to this idilic spot is down a narrow lane but the locals are few & far apart so having to get out of the way was no problem with the exception of the pheasants who seem to think they rule the road lol!
In the vicinity are a couple of excellent eating houses & more can be found nearby in Bala itself.
As for friendliness & good wholesome breakfasts, well I cannot say more than excellent & Lou puts herself out to advise on places to go & see etc & has a mass of information on most activities etc in the area plus more besides.
So if you are looking for a quiet retreat etc then you could do a lot lot worse than stay with Lou & john at their family run B & B!
ps next time we may come on my motorcycle ok? Peter
