I stayed here with a large group of girls last weekend and had one of the best weekends ever!! The hosts are just lovely, the house is amazing and the scenery is to die for. We even hired hot tubs for the garden through a different company which was no trouble for the host to arrange for us. I can't recommend this place enough and I will 100% be returning again. It is worth every penny ❤

Definitely worth a visit if you're visiting Bala or the nearby area. The room was a good size and the bed we stayed in was very comfortable. Though we had the cheaper room with the 'external' bathroom, it was only around 5ish steps from our door. The breakfast was very nice and had a good variety of food on offer as well as tea / coffee / orange juice. Patricia was a fantastic host, being mindful of social distancing throughout our visit. She gave us great support and information about the local area which we followed and did not regret at all.
