Self Catering Stone Farmhouse near Bala, North Wales | Ty-Mawr

Pet FriendlyNear PubReal Fire

Ty-Mawr is an impressive detached self catering stone farmhouse in Llanuwchllyn just outside Bala in North Wales. This part of North Wales is very popular with adventure sport enthusiasts and hopefully you’ll find this cottage a perfect base from which to explore.

There’s a nice well equipped country style kitchen diner complete with a very attractive and locally crafted oak table. A modern oven and electric hob as well as a dishwasher, microwave, large double drainer sink etc are all included. The washer dryer is in the adjacent storage shed / extension. This storage shed is secure and there’s plenty of room in there for boots, bikes or even wind surfers.

Two leather sofas sit in a large comfortable lounge in this self catering stone farmhouse. The paintings that adorn the walls are by a locally renowned artist and depict the beauty of this rural area. The log fire is naturally very welcome after a day of walking in the hills or sailing across lake Bala. A large flat screen TV should help entertain when the weather might be against you.

A nice feature of this property is the second lounge or study next door. If you’ve lost the battle for the remote control you might like to retire gracefully to this area and read a book in front of a second warming log fire.

Only two bedrooms upstairs which may seem strange for such a large property. One twin bedroom and one double bedroom. There is a sofa bed in that study if you wanted to invite some extra guests however.

Both the bedrooms enjoy fantastic views over the rolling hills and mountains of this rich and fertile part of North Wales. The curtains, linen and ornaments are all tastefully chosen and complement the cottage nicely.

I’ve left the best room till last. The bathroom is fantastic. It’s huge and dominated by a large freestanding roll top bath which looks out on that lovely view we talked about. There are of course no neighbours to worry about in this secluded self catering stone farmhouse. There’s also a separate walk in shower and a nice white bathroom suite.

The village of Llanuchllyn on the southern tip of Llyn Tegid (Bala Lake) is just over a mile away. The steam train that runs along the edge of the lake sets off from here. The village is also home the famous Eagle Pub. There’s a short cut across the fields back to the cottage, but don’t forget to bring a torch.

Bala itself is a 5 minute drive away and is a charming example of a welsh market town. A wonderful mix of traditional welsh culture and contemporary shops and cafés. The surrounding area has long established itself as a Mecca for adventure activities. Sailing, kayaking and windsurfing can be enjoyed on Bala lake with the help of Bala Water-sports and the world renowned Tryweryn white water centre is just on the outskirts of the village.

Sitting as it does on the Eastern edge of the National Park, this part of Snowdonia has the natural benefit of being easily accessible from the English road network. But seaside towns such as Aberdyfi and Barmouth are only an hour drive to the west. Similarly Snowdon is a little less than an hour to the North.

My partner and I had an absolutely lovely stay at Ty Mawr. It was the perfect getaway during these strange times. The bed is ridiculously comfy, the bath is heavenly and the views from the cottage are amazing. We spent plenty of evenings relaxing in front of the fire. It felt like a home from home.
We fitted in lots of walks nearby (Aran Benllyn, Cader Idris, Lake Vyrnwy, Precipice walk, Llyn Cynwch, Rhaeadar Ddu). Some more challenging than others but all offering beautiful autumnal views. We would 100% recommend this cottage to others.

Just managed to get a lovely week away in Wales before the lockdown hit. Ty Mawr is in a great location. Detached and with no immediate neighbours so as to feel completely isolated but within easy driving distance of any amenities that you may need. The cottage was wonderful and cosy and we felt at home straight away. As there was just myself, my boyfriend and two small dogs there was plenty of space. The bathroom is stunning and the kitchen has everything you need, including a dishwasher. The only down side was that the central heating was so efficient we did not have any need to light the beautiful fires!

Great house , everything you need is there , the fire was lovely each evening, the views are amazing , the town of Bala has everything you need from shops, cafes , pubs and restaurants all in all a relaxing break from the madness that we are living through at the moment, one criticism would be it needs a coat rack or hooks ( maybe in the porch area ) as no where to hang coats .

We had a lovely stay at Ty Mawr near Bala. Managed to get out every day, even though we had the eye of the storm literally over us on one day last week. Cottage well equipped. So quiet and secluded, recommend it if you want to get away from the rat run or Covid.
