We felt very at home in Ty Mawr with beautiful surroundings and a very relaxing time was had by all. The hot tube was lovely. We went on some lovely walks and enjoyed being in the countryside. The cottage had everything we needed and was really clean and welcoming.

We had a fantastic holiday. There was a Christmas tree with fairy lights, the fire was lit and in the kitchen, they had left us some welsh cakes, butter, milk and tea for when we arrived - very much appreciated. The walks were great and we would recommend it to anyone who loves the country way of life.

The cottage was the perfect size for our family to spend time together. The garden was very pretty and the outdoor seating excellent.
Mrs Bagshaw
September 2013
The cottage had lovely spacious accommodation, with everything provided that you need when staying in self-catering. Very approachable and friendly owners. Loved looking out on to the fields every morning and seeing the farm animals. Great views and very peaceful, a real 'escape'. It was nice to be able to wander out straight from the cottage and take a stroll in the countryside.
Mrs McAlinden

This was a perfect cozy house for a winter break with the log burner etc. There were 4 adults and 4 children in our party and we all had plenty of room. Unfortunately we had to cut our stay short but we would have loved to have stayed longer. I'm sure this house would be just as perfection the summer as it's surroundings are beautiful. The owners were great, very welcoming.
Mr Powis

Lovely well equipped house in excellent location. Very suitable for extended families such as ours. Lovely to have the Rayburn on all the time - very welcoming. Wonderful to have a welcome pack as well.
June 2014
We spent a wonderful week as two families in this beautiful, tranquil location. The "cottage" is ideal with plenty of space for everyone - en suite bathrooom in one double room and spacious bathroom at the other end of the landing.. As well as the fantastic kitchen and dining room (complete with Rayburn!) there are two seperate lounges so it's possible for the kids to watch tv or play their board games whilst the adults sit in the other lounge - complete with an idyllic log burner - whiling away the wee hours! We would thoroughly recommend the cottage as a perfect place to explore a beautiful part of Wales ... and the hot tub is just an added bonus to what is a lovely house.
May 2011
a lovely home nice location could do with more heating in the afternoon when you came home
September 2011
Very kind owners! House with all the comfort that we needed. Fishing in the river and in the Bala lake was very successfull. Excellent location to visit Swondonia.
August 2013
Stayed with three generations of family and found the cottage perfectly suited, especially with the two separate lounge areas. The wood stove was cozy on chilly evenings, the outdoor space was lovely and we especially enjoyed trips to the creek and seeing our 'neighbors' the sheep and cows. Kitchen was well fitted and there was room to cook and serve dinner for seven. Perfect location for Bala Lake and the north and west coasts are accessible if you don't mind a drive. Great if you like a bit of room around you to spread out and be quiet.
