Holiday Cottages in Wales
Tudor Cottage & The Granary both provide the perfect holiday cottage country retreat for those wanting to get away from all the stresses and strains of everyday life. At 1066ft they enjoy unrivalled views across 30 miles of stunning, unspoilt North Wales countryside, and although quiet and secluded are easily accessible from the A5 the former London to Holyhead road.
Both have been renovated to a very high standard and are more like homes than holiday cottages; they are detached and completely separate from each other with their own private gardens and parking spaces, they are also completely isolated from any road noise or neighbours. Many guests have told us that there are no photographs that can do these two holiday cottages justice, but don't just take our word for it see our visitors' comments!
The holiday cottages offer an ideal, centrally located base for exploring the Snowdonia National Park and the many other attractions North Wales has to offer; Chester, Llangollen, Ruthin, Harlech, Snowdonia, Anglesey and Betws-y-Coed are all within easy reach (see location). There are beautiful walks from the doorstep including a Bronzed Aged hill fort (one of the views from the bedroom windows), the Pilgrims Way and a whole network of short or long distance footpaths; you would be lucky to meet a single person on these walks, it really is a quiet and secluded area.
The local town of Bala (15 minute drive) offers visitors countless activities such as white water rafting at the world renowned white water centre, swimming, fishing, sailing, wind-surfing, canoeing, riding and mountain bike hire, as well as a narrow gauge lakeside steam railway (see things to do).
The town also provides for excellent shopping with two supermarkets and numerous smaller local shops; for those who don't fancy cooking on holiday it also has plenty of good eating places from good restaurants, pubs, fish and chip shops to Chinese and pizza takeaways.
The local pub / restaurant The Goat, always has a good atmosphere and is less than a ten minute drive away, it is a very family friendly place and Mark the manager will always look after you; the local garage / shop is also less than a ten minute drive away.
We have our own good sized lake now where you can swim or paddle accompanied by a cabin for guests to use while down by the lake. There is a table and chairs in there and it's a great place to chill, read, get changed etc.
There are 2 canoes and two kayaks on the lake with enough lifejackets for all.
There is also a diving jetty where the lake is at its deepest - 12 feet! The lake is one field away from the cottages and is well fenced off for safety.
DIY Livery Riding Holidays
Ever thought about taking your horse on holiday with you too? The surrounding area is full of quiet country lanes with excellent hacking to be had for many miles around.
With the additional use of a 20m x 40m manege (also fitted with arena mirrors) coupled with grazing and optional stabling, Tudor Cottage and The Granary are the perfect base for a Welsh riding holiday.
