The cottage is in a great location a few miles from Bala in a peaceful hamlet. I was greeted by the owner Carol who gave me a tour of the cottage & was very informative about the local attractions, walks eateries etc which I made great use of with my 2 children aged 8 & 2. Beds are super comfy, all amenities are in the cottage Carol even provided the milk ! home from home. Lovely peaceful garden for relaxing in after a long day out & about
Would highly recommend & will definitely return
We had a lovely stay at Pen Y Banc cottage, Perfect for our weekend stay, cosy and had everything we needed. Carol welcomed us on our arrival and was an excellent host. Good location and suited our dog well with stunning walks nearby. We hope to return in the near future.
3 day break at this lovely traditional Welsh cottage. We were able to take our dog who loved the secure garden. The cottage is very comfortable and well equipped. We were there in very hot weather and it was great to come back to lovely cool rooms. I'm sure it would be really cosy with the log fires in cooler times. The village of Sarnau is close to the Bala/Llangollen road which makes it a good position to visit many places around. We will look forward to returning at some point in the future.
We enjoyed every aspect of our stay with my family of four. Great location and a lovely cottage with everything we could need.
Lovely cottage near Bala. Easy to find, especially with the extra directions given by Carole. The cottage couldn't have been better for our weekend away. It was very well equipped and clean, with plenty of towels linen utensils games for children DVDs and books. Carole even left tea/coffee /Hot chocolate for us and a large container of milk ( she even asked our preference for semi or full fat!) The garden was great for our two dogs who enjoyed the safe place to run around.
I would recommend this cottage for couple/families wanting a neat traditional welsh cottage in the middle of the welsh countryside. Thank you for a delightful stay, we will be back!
Pen y Banc is situated a few miles from Bala and is within leisurely driving distance of many outstanding areas like Mt. Snowdon, the Rhinogs, the Celtic rainforests near Dollelgelau, Cregennan (stunning!) and the Llanberis Pass and not too far from the Llyn Peninsula either. The cottage is in a dark sky area for those interested in walking or driving a short distance out of the village to watch the stars. Carol is very helpful and hospitable and provides everything you need for a comfortable stay. The beds are super with nice quality bedding, so you will sleep well here. It's a fully enclosed garden and so my little dog could have free roam there when we were not out exploring. Carol's cottage was a perfect mini break and Carol is lovely.
