I found the cottage to be absolutely charming, perfectly equipped for a comfortable stay. We instantly felt at home and especially loved a roaring fire in the evening and waking up to the stunning views across the valley and lake. In a wonderful tranquil setting accessed via an off-road track, we truly felt away from it all. The surrounding area...

Management response:

Thank you for your kind review. We try to make the cottage a 'home from home', and we'll be continuing to add both herbs and flowers to the garden.

Our family had a really pleasant stay in this lovely cottage. Apart from being spacious, it has a very well-equipped kitchen which includes a dishwasher and washing machine and reliable wi-fi. The only slight downside we found, for people with children who need the toilet in the night, is that the bathroom is downstairs. The surrounding area is beautiful and...

Management response:

We're pleased you liked the farmhouse and glad that the Wi-Fi was useful and reliable. We continue to add things when we can, so that our guests will feel at home.

Had a lovely relaxing week in Llechwedd Fwyalchen cottage. Fed the log burner with branches found on our wanders, but cottage was perfectly warm throughout. Generous bath, cottage comfortable throughout, well equipped ( discovered the log burner proves bread brilliantly). Visited Castell y bere and the brilliant cafe nearby. Rambled, mooches bout, enjoyed each other's company and had a lovely...

Management response:

We're pleased you found it peaceful, and with the neighbours some distance away, we don't think they would notice if you wanted to wash yourselves in loud music from time to time. We'll be wanting to get up there ourselves soon to see the new season's lambs, and ensure that the place is ready for others to enjoy.

About the neighborhood
There is a wealth of outdoor activities on the doorstep of this Snowdonia farmhouse. Lake Bala (Llyn Tegid) is the largest natural lake in Wales, where watersports of all types can be enjoyed with or without expert instruction. Nearby, the National White Water, Canolfan Tryweryn offers white knuckle rafting and much more. There's also rock climbing, gorge walking, canyoning, pony trekking, quad biking to mountain biking in the stunning Coed Y Brenin Forest trails and more! If all this sounds all a bit like too much hard work, why not take a gentle stroll or drive and take in some of the most breathtaking scenery in the United Kingdom.
Getting around
Although a car is almost essential, there is a regular bus service between Wrexham and Barmouth that passes within 10 minutes walk of the house.
Car recommended
How to get there
Railway: Wrexham: 31.1 mi
Take the road for Bala in North Wales. Go through Bala in the direction of Dolgellau. 6 miles from Bala on the A494 you find the small village of Llanuwchllyn. Notice the filling station on your right; do not turn left into the village but stay on the A494. A further 1.3 miles from the filling station, just past a lay-by and on a sweeping right bend in the road slow down! At the small chapel on your right (at Rhosdylluan) you need to turn left and across a small metal bridge on to a single track lane. After about a quarter of a mile along the lane the road forks. Take the right fork on to a track up the hill (across another small wooden bridge). At the end of the track you will find Llechwedd Fwyalchen and a magical world.
Activities nearby
There Is A Golf Course Within 30 Mins Drive, Horse Riding Nearby, Watersports Nearby, Nearest Beach: 20.5 mi.
