Property code: 83765

Lovely corner barn with enclosed garden and panoramic rural views near Bala. Perfect for couples to relax or take an active break in North Wales countryside and Snowdonia National Park.

A bright and cheerful bolthole that welcomes two dogs, this property is the ideal choice for any couple hoping to explore the beauty of rural Wales. Located on the brink of Snowdonia National Park and with the bustling town of Bala close by (3 miles), walking routes and outdoor experiences aplenty are assured throughout your stay. Pups will be in their element exploring the many routes for walkies and waterside adventures, whether it’s a gentle stroll around the Llyn Tegid lake (3 miles) or sniffing out new scents on the banks of the River Dee (less than 200 metres).

This handsome stone cottage is set on a 220-acre working farm with farmland and footpaths for you and your pet to roam. Inside you’ll find the property is sunny and pleasant, flooded with light thanks to skylights and French doors. Your energetic pup will no doubt appreciate a breath of fresh air on the enclosed patio, a great spot for lazy brunch or al fresco evening meals. Enjoy your favourite shows on TV, sinking into comfortable sofas with your faithful friend at your feet, before soaking away the day’s exertions in the downstairs wet room or upstairs bathroom. Settle down for sleep in the generous first-floor bedroom, and wake up to glorious views.

Cross the farmland to enjoy instant access to the River Dee and set off on a world of exploration. Let your pooch lead the way when discovering the Snowdonia National Park, an area filled with mountains, lakes and endless walking routes, right on your doorstep. Dogs keen on hiking will find an abundance of strenuous walking routes on which to sniff out adventure, whilst those smaller breeds with less aptitude for rambling will appreciate easy going excursions, or perhaps a trip to a dog-friendly local pub in the nearby town of Bala.

The location of this and the adjoining cottages is absolutely stunning with incredible views down the valley. Easy access to Snowdonia and the northern coast as well Barmouth and to the south. Great if you have a dog as you can walk out of the property straight into fields and there is also plenty of safe parking. We were very comfortable in the coRead morettage and had a great time. Hide

A lovely little place that was perfect as a place to stay while I was on holiday. Hannah, Sue and everyone running the cottages was very friendly and helpful.

A wonderfully located cottage with outstanding views across Bala and beyond. The cottage was spotlessly clean, and the hosts were very friendly and available if needed. This is a working farm, so whilst it's dog friendly, dogs can't be off lead on site, however we found numerous places to go to take the dogs where they could roam free without worryRead more. A 4 min drive to Bala town itself, with a number of shops, and places to eat and drink. Hide

A really lovely place with very friendly owners who were available but not intrusive at all. Spotlessly clean, just a shame no TV upstairs as the sofa wasn't comfy & we would have liked an option to watch tv in the very comfy bed. Other than that it was perfect!
