Merrimoles is a well appointed lodge at the edge of a larger park. The countryside around,views and lake are beautiful.
It's worth checking what supplies are there before you do a big shops as lots of staples-: tea, coffee, sugar,salt,oil and washing and cleaning materials etc were there when we came.
The Bala Co-op,(5 mins drive into the town) had a free car park behind it and was well stocked for all but specialist things.
There's a lovely home-made ice cream shop along the High Street with a wide range of interesting, different flavours. A very successful and pleasant holiday spot for us.
Had a great time at Merrimoles, the lodge is very comfy and the hot tub is great after a day exploring Snowdonia. The view watching the sun set is awesome!
Would recommend doing the gorge walking/ canyoning trip from Bala watersports just down the road at the lake. Very cool day out.
This was perfect in every way. I can't recommend this more highly.
Fun,practical absolutely everything we needed for a long weekend in Wales with our adult children and their partners.
Cleanliness was excellent and I'm fussy!
Hot tub was clean, hot and bubbly!
Excellent local amenities with a Spa,Co op and pretty village in Bala.
We climbed Snowdon (1 hour away)
Zip World Titan (30 mins away)
Beautiful setting, and very relaxing place to stay! We went as a group of four and thoroughly enjoyed it....
The accommodation itself was in perfect condition, clean, fresh, and fully kitted out for us to enjoy a self catering holiday. The jaccuzi was absolutely amazing! All your troubles will float away in the bubbles
Lake Bala was nearby, we did some kayaking which was great fun! We went to Dolgellau and walked the Waterfalls and Goldmines Trail at Coed y Brenin. They were both close by so was very easy and relaxing to get around. Great local alchahol shop called Stori on the high street in Bala where we got some great local whiskeys and beers. We had food at the Plas yn Dre on the high street wich is a great pub! Highly reccomend the Cowl. We also went to a nice ice cream shop on the high street nearer to the petrol station. I forget the name now.
Overall great experience 100% recommend if you want a nice relaxing weekend!
Just got back from staying here. Lovely setting overlooking Snowdon, especially when your sitting in the hot tub!
The cabin is extremely clean, with linen and towels. Nice little touches, with a bottle of wine and chocolates when arriving. The cabin is fully equipped with cooking facilities.
Location is great for walking around Bala Lake, only an hours drive if you wish to climb Snowden.
Would recommend this place, can't wait to book again for next year!
Merrimoles is situated overlooking stunning views of Bala. The lodge itself is of high standard, making our stay very comfortable. The hot tub was an added bonus that made our stay even more enjoyable. Our family thoroughly enjoyed the relaxing setting and the accessibility to lots of places, making our first family holiday to Wales a trip to remember.
