“Great place for a large family celebration”
Reviewed March 4, 2012 for a stay in September 2011

We had a great time staying at Pen y bont Farmhouse in September when we booked a long weekend to celebrate mum’s 60th birthday. As a party of 6 adults and 4 children we needed a larger property with plenty of space. From the outside Pen y Bont Farmhouse looked like a small cottage but inside it was like a tardis with 3 living rooms, 5 bedrooms and a lovely kitchen diner, all with lovely character and attention to detail. The log burners made the farmhouse lovely and cosy in the evenings and we all enjoyed playing board games together. The beds were superb, so comfy it was hard to get up in the morning. The kids especially enjoyed exploring the house with the “secret” back staircase and the large gardens provided plenty of opportunity for them to run around and play. Mum loved our daytrip to Portmeirion, and we even made it to the top of Snowdon! There is loads to do in the area and we can’t wait to come again and explore more. The small town of Bala was only a short walk away and was very quaint, just one thing to be careful of though – we found that a lot of the restaurants shut fairly early in the evening, and we had to have a take away on our first night (tried the Chinese and it was excellent!) Would definitely recommend this farmhouse to similar groups – it ticks all the boxes for us!
