“tranquilty & friendliness...”
Reviewed 16 August 2010 for a stay in August 2010

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

“Excellent Bed and Breakfast - highly recommened!!”
Reviewed 6 February 2010 for a stay in October 2009

My husband and I had never been to Wales before. I did a lot of research and found Alastair Sawday's book very useful. This Bed and Breakfast lived up to its book review.

It is in a pefect location for exploring Snowdonia. There is so much to do around the area, and we ran out of time! But you must make time for a trip up Snowdonia itself (train up, walk down is about as much as we could muster!!) and we took a drive to the quirky Italian village of Portmerion. You have to also sample the fantastic steaks at the Plas-Yn-Dre in Bala, and visit Betws y Coed for a bit of shopping (also lovely restaurant here called The Royal Oak Grill Bisto Betws y Coed - we almost didnt go in here and nealy missed out on the amazing carvery!).

I need to mention Lou, who runs the B&B, she is a fantastic host. Her breakfasts are superb, fresh farm delivered eggs and meats, a range of cereals, jams and preserves. The bedrooms are so pretty, clean and comfortable. Every day we had a fresh tray by our bedside with tea, coffee, herbal teas and shortbreads. The living room is cozy, with magazines and books and a fireplace. Lou is full of local knowledge and readily available for questions should you need to ask. There are plenty of guide books and maps so dont worry if you come unprepared. We had a fantastic time - thank you!
