Talyllyn Lake in all its moods, from calm and serene to wind-whipped must be one of the most perfect outlooks for a hotel in Wales. Highlights of our three days here include walking into the back of the Cader Idris range via a steady climbing route past Llewylln's castle and Mary Jones' cottage, with the whole valley to ourselves; similarly quiet and beautiful Bird Rock...choughs, ravens and cormorants nesting this far inland; and the amazing osprey project that the Wildlife Trust runs not so far away, with its vivid cctv screens on these magnificent birds
And of course the welcome from the hotel owners and the staff, and the friendliness of the bar-resteraunt where we enjoyed the cooking each of the evenings.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Pen-y-Bont Hotel in Talyllyn is a 16th Century Coaching Inn situated on the South West shore of Llyn Mwyngil (Talyllyn Lake) in Southern Snowdonia, Wales. Our location at the foot of Cadair Idris is magical and uniquely beautiful, the views you see here are shown by many yet only fully seen from our premises. We offer a warm welcome to all our visitors and share our knowledge of the local area, helping you to get the most out of your stay in this serene Celtic landscape. Many Welsh myths are centred here, and the landscape is untouched by development. Within the valley we have virtually no mobile phone signals, although there is free WiFi throughout the Hotel Building & we have Flat screen TVs in all the rooms. We have five rooms, a Bar and a Restaurant. Our Beer Garden is where you can see Talyllyn at it's best, and is a sensational place to eat on a warm Summer's day. At other times you can cosy up by one of our log fires in the Fireside Restaurant and Bar. Come and enjoy our Home-cooked meals with Real Chips and Real Ale, in one of the most stunning locations in Wales. ... more less
