“Cosy cabin in a beautiful setting!”
Reviewed March 26, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

The cabin is the perfect quiet romantic getaway. The cabin itself is beautifully decorated, warm and cosy with a large decking overlooking the stream. The owners house is next door but despite this, it feels private and secluded. There is a great walk up the mountain nearby with spectacular views. Not much going on in Bala at this time of year but the cabin is only an hour away from all the beautiful snowdonia spots. The hosts were lovely and helpful. A perfect trip overall!!

“Perfect for a relaxing getaway”
Reviewed January 16, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

This is a gorgeous cabin. It's clean, well laid out and really homely. The kitchen has everything you'd have in your kitchen at home. The sofa is super comfy, there's a great tv with loads of channels and a DVD player. The bedroom is lovely, very comfy bed and bedding. The bathroom is wonderful with an amazing shower!! The use of the hot tub is also great, lovely after a long day of walking. The town is a 10 minute walk, which has pubs, a small supermarket, gift shops and a couple of restaurants. What more could you need! The scenery is just stunning. It's so peaceful and we felt so relaxed. We will be coming back time and time again. It's also amazing value for money.

“Beautiful cosy cottage”
Reviewed January 13, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

I bought this trip as a Christmas gift for me and my boyfriend. It was everything we could have wanted. We had a friendly welcome but then were left to do as we pleased. The view from the cabin is gorgeous as you look straight onto the river. It was really easy to find as the town was so tiny. We had a chinese take away from New China which was fab, the portions are big so we had leftovers the next day :) Bala town has everything you need - Shops, Takeaways, Restaurants and Pubs. We didn't really have a chance to explore which was a shame. I wish we had booked more than a 2 nights stay, hopefully we will be returning.

“So cosy & warm even in chilly November!”
Reviewed November 7, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We have just come back from 2 nights in this cosy cabin. We didn't want to come home! It was a lovely cabin and so warm, the perfect place to go back to after a cold day walking. It has everything you would need for a short break. The shower was great and the bed was super comfortable. Nice to have a good TV for a winter stay as it does get dark early, take a torch for any late night walks into Bala. Bala had a good little selection of shops with a fab butchers which sells ready made meals such as lasagne and cottage pie, yummy! Thank you Mel for a much needed few days of peace!

“Absolutely perfect place to stay for a weekend or week away.”
Reviewed September 29, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Beautiful cabin in a lovely location. Me and my boyfriend booked this cabin over a long weekend. It was lovely clean and very cosy. My boyfriend had a great time outside on the decked area over looking the stream. The shower is amazing I'm actually consider having this in my home.There is lots of thing to do the 1st day we went into Bala town to the butchers which was as good as the previous recommendation we had seen. We also climbed mount snowdon on the Saturday via the Watkin path which was a experience. I wouldn't advise for an inexperienced walker. The hot tub is a perfect place to relax after outdoor activities. We also got the steam train from Bala town. They have a selection of brochures in the cabin which are great to find out what you can do. I would advise going to the tesco on the first day as the spa and co-operative are expensive in Bala town. I will be again soon and inviting friends. Thank you Mel for a great weekend.

“beautiful lodge !!”
Reviewed September 23, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

we stayed here for a week on the 15th of September and we had a fantastic time. Walking towards the lodge for the first time it looked small. But don't be fooled. It's perfect and very well laid out! Also the hot tub was a lovely treat! Mel and Nick were amazing too very lovely and helpful. I would definitely recommend this place if a relaxing break is what you need:)

“Perfect place for a relaxing getaway”
Reviewed August 21, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Me and my boyfriend stayed at cavan-y-saer for 4 nights, and we thoroughly enjoyed every second. The cottage itself was absolutely beautiful and fully equipped. We really did feel at home. We made great use out of the terrace overlooking the river, as we were provided with a small barbecue also.
Mel and Mick (the owners) could not have been more helpful and friendly. We received such a warm welcome off them and were sad to leave. The hot tub was an added bonus to the lodge, to which we made great use of. We will definitely be visiting again next year.
