The cottage was very comfortable; a home from home which was warm and inviting. We would definitely like to stay again in the future. Thank you for such a wonderful weekend stay.

Yr Hen Olchfa os a wonderful property, very homely and welcoming and facilities that went beyond anything I've been to before. The owner was incredibly kind and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Excellent location right in the heart of Bala.

Yr Hen Olchfa was such a lovely property to stay in. It was really homely and made the difference in enjoying our break away. The property was of a very high standard, had lots of little extras and is situated in an ideal location.

Just spent a week at yr hen olchfa and found it very cosy. It was very well equipped so you don,t need to take any utensils with you in fact it had everything you would need and more. The parking was a bit tight even for a fiesta but I used the open parking across the road with no problem. The property is ideal if you want a base to travel around North Wales or if you just want to stay local being just off the high street. Recommend the white lion for a meal out. All in all a very nice property.
