Perfect dwelling with stunning views, our second visit

Mrs Marilyn P,

The property was one of the best we have stayed in. Very well furnished, clean and comfortable and great views. Owners are lovely people too!

Miss Alison L,

Y Bwthyn was a fabulous rental property - it was furnished and decorated as a home and was extremely comfortable - could be the best rental we have ever stayed in! The views are amazing and the neighbours of sheep, lambs and bullocks were lovely to watch out of the dining room, kitchen and lounge windows. We walked into Bala a few times, which has shops, pubs, cafes etc. and Bala is well placed to visit many of North and mid Wales attractions. We certainly enjoyed our stay and did not want to leave this beautiful house. Gwyn and Jane were very welcoming and eager to see that we were having a good time - thank you.

Audrie L,

A very comfortable property! Hope to visit again soon!
