“Superb place to stay”
Reviewed 15 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Really enjoyed our week here. A very attractive conversion of part of the old workhouse, the property is very well equipped and one of the best self-catering places we have used. A great base for walking the Berwyn and Arenig hills - my reason for booking it - but Bala has plenty to offer apart from hill-walking. Highly recommended!

“Beautiful cottage”
Reviewed 29 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Stayed bank holiday week at this lovely cottage. Right in the centre of Bala and a couple of minutes walk from the lake. The cottage is a beautifully renovated former workhouse. Very contemporary in design and well decorated. The bedroom is on a mezzanine level above the living area. The cottage is in a courtyard with 5 others behind a locked gate so secure too. The freeview has very imited channels but this was fine with us as we didnt go to Wales to watch TV ! There is no parking space specifically assigned to the cottage but we had no problem in getting a space directly outside. Otherwise you can park in the car park across the street but this is £7.50 a day which adds up if you need to park there for a week. We would definitely return to the cottage and felt it to be in an ideal position to tour North Wales. Bala itself has a few pubs and eateries with friendly locals who made us welcome.

“Lovely, cosy yet spacious cottage.”
Reviewed 27 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Beautiful cottage which was well equipped, spacious, cosy and a very pleasant place to stay. The sofa was large and very comfortable, and the TV was a reasonable good size too. The kitchen cupboards were well stocked with (more than just) essentials, such as salt, sugar, ketchup, pasta, gravy and much more. The range of cooking utensils provided was more than adequate...I comfortably managed to cook a roast dinner on Sunday. The cottage was only a 2 minute walk from the local Co-op and village (or town?) centre with Post Office, Petrol Station, gift shops and pubs. My only criticisms were that the wifi speed occasionally slowed and the shower pressure was poor. Also the public car park opposite was actually £7.50/day rather than £2.50 which has obviously be raised by the local council, but we were able to park right outside the cottage door for the entire week and didn't pay a penny for public parking.

Bear in mind if you try to view this property on Google Maps, you will not find it...it is not there!

Would definitely recommend this place for a holiday. It is very homely and welcoming and good value for money!
