“First class Barn Conversion”
Reviewed 22 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Stayed from Sunday 18th - Thursday 22nd. On arrival was greeted with a friendly warm welcome from Manon & Gareth who showed us the property. Excellent facilities especially the hot tub great after a day of walking and sight seeing.
The view at the back of the property was picturesque. Visited Betws y Coed taking in Swallow falls, Llanberis pass and surrounding countryside. A trip to Port Merrion was fantastic. This location provided us with an ideal base for exploring some of North Wales finest places. Bala itself had more than enough pubs and eateries to choose from in the evening.

All in all a great few days relaxing in what I can only describe as a wonderful barn conversion which had everything that made it feel home from home and more.

Thank you both for your kind hospitality.

Thank you for booking with Best of Wales. There has been a great deal of thought put into the property. So really good to hear that you appreciate the details and great to hear you felt really welcome and at home.

It is a great base where you can explore Snowdonia and the magic of Portmeirion. If you feel like staying close to the property the local food and drink offers plenty of options.

Be great to welcome you back again soon

“A beautiful property in a lovely location”
Reviewed 9 April 2016 for a stay in November 2015

We stayed here to watch the world rally championship in November 2015. It was a lovely barn conversion. The bed was incredibly comfortable and the interior finished to a really high standard. The hot tub was lovely and looked out over a beautiful view. The owners were also really helpful and friendly. The town of Bala provides some great places for food too. Perfect for a mini break!

“The perfect getaway”
Reviewed 4 April 2016 for a stay in April 2015

We stayed for our mini honeymoon in April 2015 and were welcomed by Gareth, Manon and their lovely family. We found the cottage really easily with the directions we had been given by Best of Wales....the cottage is just opposite an old cinema. We arrived to find a lovely bottle of bubbly, a bunch of red roses with rose petals scattered on the bed and some delicious Welsh cakes to say congratulations...a nice touch. The cottage was stunning and so cosy....a real home from home. We loved the hot tub and found the bed really comfy. We found the bathroom and kitchen facilities excellent and were really impressed with the shower and dishwasher. We found the hot tub quite private which was adjacent to a field. We were quite lucky and got a really clear night sky and was able to stargaze. The cottage is really well lit with plenty of mirrors and plug sockets and you can control the heating as well as the underfloor heating. The cottage also offers free wifi. The location is fantastic and is right in the centre of Bala. We ate from the local Indian and Chinese over the weekend and both were great. Bala lake is 5 minutes walk from the cottage and is well worth a visit to see its beautiful surroundings. We had a brilliant time and I decided to go back with my friends in October. They all loved it and said how nice it was. We ate from the busy fish and chip restaurant in Bala and visited one of the local pubs. We had a great time. I find the people in Bala very welcoming and friendly. Me and my husband are due to visit the cottage once again in a few weeks time for our 1st wedding anniversary and we can't wait to be in our happy place once again

“Fabulous getaway!”
Reviewed 8 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We stayed here for 4 nights, myself, partner and our 4 year old daughter. The conversion was absolutely beautiful, and a little bit of luxury; the hot tub was an welcomed bonus! The owners were extremely welcoming, and always on hand if needed. The accommodation came with everything needed and more, was extremely clean, very well maintained and decorated. Shops pubs and restaurants are just a few minutes walk away. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who is considering it, you won't be disappointed!

“Fabulous mini break”
Reviewed 2 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

My husband and I are about to leave this wonderful cottage after a lovely 3night stay. The cottage has been renovated to an excellent standard and even in the cold wet and windy Welsh weather it was still really warm. All the facilities are brilliant and the hot tub is great (again despite the weather). We will definitely be returning!!!

“Perfection!”
Reviewed 27 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We have just returned from here after a few days break to celebrate my Mam's birthday. The cottage itself is immaculate, finished to an exceptionally high standard and a perfect base to explore the area. Gareth and Manon the owners live on site and are very helpful and friendly without being intrusive. The outdoor area with the hot tub is the perfect way to finish off the day. I would 100% recommend this cottage, we couldn't fault it.
