Property code: OC-82683

A striking stone barn conversion nestled in a tranquil rural setting on the fringes of Bala and the Snowdonia National Park. This romantic retreat is perfect for an outdoorsy couple and their tufty-pawed third wheel. Thrill seekers can dive in for an invigorating wild water swim alongside their doggy-paddling pal in the glacial waters of Llyn Tegid (7 miles) before basking in the afternoon sun from the enclosed lawn with a chilled tipple in hand.

This traditional two-storey property features a homely cottage interior with rustic exposed beams, wooden stable doors, and premium slate flooring. Dry soggy paws before stepping into the open-plan kitchen/diner. Stock up the shaker cabinets with a selection of locally sourced goodies then rustle up some well-earned kibble for Fido. Crack open a bottle of good stuff then settle at the intimate table to dine overlooking the rolling hills beyond. Retire to the lounge area and sink onto the large leather sofa to while away the evening blethering or unwinding with a film. Ascend the oak staircase to discover a spacious mezzanine-style double bedroom with vaulted ceilings and an en-suite bathroom. Outside, curious canines will be in their element sniffing in the crisp country air and snuffling on the lawned garden while you tuck into an al fresco breakfast spread on the gravel courtyard.

Pack a picnic and plenty of meaty treats then embark on a hiking adventure through the rugged North Berwyn Way (5 miles) or enjoy a gentler pace with a scenic scamper along the Dee Valley Way (6 miles). After a day of exploring, refuel with a frothy coffee and cake alongside the dog-loving locals in Bala (6 miles).

Loved this little cottage near Bala. Just 2 rental cottages on the plot and 2 other tenanted properties across and up from the semi cottages. It was quiet, beautiful little garden (entrance through gate at side of the cottage) with magnificent views. You do need to drive to get anywhere as main road just off the farm is fast moving and has no pavemRead moreents. Owner manual was useful to find little places worth a visit and owner could not be more kind or accommodating. Hide
