Farm Holiday Cottage With Mountain Views | Beudy-Penardd

This farm holiday cottage with mountain views is a beautifully converted two bedroom stone barn that sits high above the river Wnion half way between the market towns of Dolgellau and Bala in the Snowdonia National Park.

Downstairs the living area has a nice open plan arrangement. The dinning area and lounge are is a spacious and bright room. The kitchen is smaller but very well equipped and has some wonderful French doors which open out onto the fantastic vista of Cader Idris and the surrounding mountains.

Substantial wooden dining chairs surround the large dining table as an elegant country dresser stands guard on the rear wall. The adjoining lounge area houses a sumptuous leather three-piece suit as well as the usual digital TV DVD player etc. Tasteful ornaments and soft furnishings help create a relaxed comfortable space. A useful ground floor wc and washbasin is located under the stairs.

There are two bedrooms up stairs. One double and one twin room. The twin room is again, beautifully finished with character features like exposed wooden trusses and ledge and brace doors. A small en-suite bathroom contains a wc washbasin and shower cubicle.

The double room also has an en-suite bathroom. This time with a lovely corner bath. But the best feature here perhaps is the access that is afforded out onto the raised decking area to the rear of the cottage. A private sheltered area facing south across the valley floor and the river Wnion and out to the mountains beyond.

I should also mention that guests to the cottage also benefit from being afforded the very exclusive Prince Albert fishing rights for the stretch of the river Wnion that runs past the cottage.

Location

The cottage is located in a relatively remote spot on a working welsh hill farm in Southern Snowdonia. The location and layout of the cottage means guests, whilst having the opportunity to watch or even get involved in farm activities, can also have a more private secluded holiday if they prefer.

..working welsh farm..
..secluded holiday..
..half way between Bala and Dolgellau..


The market town of Dolgellau is a 10 minute drive to the west and has a nice selection of cafes, restaurants, local craft shops and bike hire shop. We wouldn’t expect our self catering guests to buy any livestock during their stay but a visit to the cattle ring on market day can be very entertaining and educational.

Another 10 minutes west will bring you to the seaside town of Barmouth. A big favourite with many tourists during the summer months. Wide and open sandy beaches, fish and chips, donkey rides, and the compulsory candy floss and kiss me quick hats is difficult to resist on sunny days.

On another day you may decide to head East to Bala. Water sports such as sailing, wind surfing or kayaking can be enjoyed on the river Tegid and white water rafting is very popular a little further up on the Tryweryn River.

Charming Holiday Cottage in Bala North Wales | Hysbysfa

Charming Holiday Cottage in Bala North Wales | Hysbysfa
Hysbysfa is a lovely and charming holiday cottage in Bala, North Wales on the Eastern edge of the Snowdonia National Park. The cottage is secluded and private yet still walking distance to the pubs, shops and the wonderful Bala lake.

As you cross the brow of the hill a wide beautiful valley opens out in front of you. The cottage, a traditional welsh build of thick stonewalls under a slate roof, is located within a large garden complete with babbling brook, surrounded in turn by fields of green grass. A picture postcard image of peace and tranquillity.

..large garden..
..gorgeous living room..

Through the gate, the drive leads you past the annex cinema studio (we’ll return to this in a moment) up to the stable door of the cottage. Once inside, a gorgeous living room greets holiday guests. A dining area to the right and lounge to the left. The dining area comprises a large table overlooked by a deep-set window and some elegant pictures hanging on whitewashed walls. The lounge opposite has a lovely inglenook fireplace complete with log burner. A leather sofa and comfortable armchairs face the warming fire.

Through and around to the right we pass a useful utility room with additional wc, Belfast sink and shower before entering the kitchen. Bespoke freestanding stainless steel units create a quirky country cottage feel whilst modern appliances and utensils ensure enthusiastic chefs are well catered for.

There are three bedrooms upstairs. One double room, one bunk bed room and one single room. The single room has a second full sized bed under the first, which can be pulled out if required. Please ask. All the bedrooms are immaculately decorated and have some nice ornamental touches that complement the character and style of this traditional welsh country cottage. The last room upstairs is the bathroom. Again, nicely decorated with a nice white bathroom suite including a large bath to help you soak those legs after a long day walking in the mountains.

Finally, we have to go back outside before walking across the drive to get to the annex building. A nearby barn has been lavishly converted into a unique cinema room for self-catering guests. A large flat screen TV hangs on the wall in front of a large comfortable sofa. A small kitchenette and separate shower room and WC means film or sports fans can make themselves very much at home as they watch a DVD or a live sporting event.

Location

As described, the cottage is in an idyllic location. Fields of grazing sheep surround a large garden that includes a picnic bench, BBQ and a small brook. Beyond the valley floor the Arenig Mountains rise up to form an impressive backdrop.

Bala itself is a charming example of a welsh market town and a wonderful mix of traditional welsh culture and contemporary shops and cafés. The surrounding area has long established itself as a Mecca for adventure activities. Fishing, sailing and windsurfing are all enjoyed on Llyn Tegid (Bala Lake). And the world renowned Tryweryn white water centre is just up the road. The Coed Y Brennin Mountain Biking centre is about half an hour further on. Bala Golf Course is also within easy walking distance of the holiday cottage.

Sitting as it does on the Eastern edge of the National Park, this part of Snowdonia has the natural benefit of being easily accessible from the English road network. But seaside towns such as Aberdyfi and Barmouth are only an hour drive to the west. Similarly Snowdon is a little less than an hour to the North.
