Romantic one bedroom holiday cottage in Bala North Wales | Ty-Newydd

Real Fire

Ty Newydd is a romantic one bedroom holiday cottage in Bala in North Wales. This simple yet elegant cottage provides self catering holiday accommodation for up to two people in a beautifully tranquil location.

We enter this converted stone keepers cottage through a painted lavender door into an open plan living area. A small but well equipped kitchen is immediately opposite. A traditional Belfast sink and wooden work surfaces compliment modern appliances including a dishwasher and built in convection oven. A small fold out table for dining sits under a flat screen tv just to the left.

Continuing around the room we come to the original stone inglenook that now houses a lovely log fire. A comfortable two-seater sofa faces onto it. Wooden flooring with under floor heating and tastefully chosen ornaments creates a sense of style and grace.

Some impressive hardwood double doors lead us through into the bedroom area. Shuttered deep-set windows fill the room with a beautifully soft light. The high vaulted ceilings adding to the feeling of space and serenity. We continue through a second door into the spacious bathroom. A large enamelled bath with separate shower cubicle sits on a quarry-tiled floor. A great place to soak and relax at the end of a long day in the mountains.

Floor Plans




Bala 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 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 although we’d encourage guests to explore the less crowded mountains right on your doorstep. The Aran, Arenig and Berwyn mountain ranges should satisfy even the most enthusiastic of hikers.

This little cottage was absolutely gorgeous, such a nice little break away from home. Gorgeous log burner and underfloor heating which was heavenly in the winter days. Gorgeous views from the house and very close to very scenic walks around the Bala Lake. Would love to go back.

Lovely week spent in this tucked away cottage; perfect base for long walks, cycle rides and using the local mountain bike centres. Our first holiday in Wales and the scenery did not disappoint – we’ll be back!

It was a very lovely cottage and very cosy.
Would not alter any thing.

Had a fabulous week in this lovely secluded, peaceful cottage with only the little black cows as neighbours. Inside was clean, warm and comfortable with all the extras you could need in the kitchen. The bed was large and comfy with a nice big bathroom next door to the bedroom. The town of Bala is only a short drive away with shops for stocking up and plenty places to eat. Great central area for walking which we were able to enjoy as the weather was kind the week we were there. Also plenty of places of interest to visit within a short drive from the cottage e.g. Llangolen, Harlech Castle and the Glass Blobbery. We would definately recommend staying here and hope to revisit ourselves in the future.

First off, what a beautiful and fabulous place, perfect for a little romantic trip away with someone special. Tucked away from everyone else you feel a real sense of getting away from it all and a chance to properly relax. It’s also a great base to get out into the hills for some lovely walks. We ended up bringing a few ‘kitchen bits’ with us that we were not needed as despite the kitchen being compact it had every utensil/pot/pan you could possibly need.
A couple of really minor things that could make things even better would be:
a) A larger sofa that could accommodate a Tv watching, snuggling couple.
b) A way of turning down the heating.. I couldn’t get it to cool down and resorted to opening windows.
c) I know you can’t do anything about the peat in the water, but it’s worth mentioning to others that the romantic edge could be taken off a double dip in the bath when it looks like a hippo has just got out. (Kidding, it’s just a bit brown).
Don’t let my moaning put you off, it is a fab place and hopefully we will be back soon.

Ty Newyedd is a beautifully restored cottage with wonderful views in a secluded setting. No WiFi, just a perfect place to relax and unwind. It is warm, cosy and has a charm all of its own.
There are great walks from the cottage, a lovely walk is up Moel Emoel the views from the top are amazing, another is into Bala across the fields. Many thanks to Flora and Richard for all the little extras they provide for their guests.

We’ve just got back from our fourth stay here, so that’s recommendation enough really!!
I just feel happy and relaxed from the minute that I set eyes on the place.
I love the peace, views and only having cows as neighbours!
The only fly in the ointment is that everyone else obviously has the same idea, because it’s getting increasingly difficult to get in now, it’s always booked up! Obviously I am pleased that it’s doing so well, but, selfishly, not if it means that we can’t return as often as we’d like!!!

We have just returned from a long weekend staying in Ty-Newydd. The compact but delightful dwelling has been beautifully restored. We did not experience any issues with the cleaning and judging from the many excellent comments in the visitors book, the issues experienced by the previous reviewer were very much the exception. As the cooler evenings draw in the log fire is a must…and may create more dust, but that’s to be expected. The cottage is not on mains water…so the owners leaving bottled water, as well as milk and wine, was much appreciated. I’d advise others to take more water and logs if you don’t want to spend your time shopping, but facilities are only a few minutes away by car. It’s a peaceful spot, no light pollution and very little noise so allowed for a relaxing time. Walks from the door as well as nearby around Bala make for good all round spot.
