Cottage in Bala, Snowdonia, North Wales - only 300 yards from the lake foreshore
- english, Welsh
I'm Megan and I have managed the leisure part of our business for over 35 years, we also have a farm but leave most that side of the business to my husband - Edward, although I like helping out during lambing time. I am a mother of 2 sons - one a senior civil engineer working away from home and the other has his own business living nearby, and has made me a proud grandmother to 3 boys and one girl. I enjoy travelling, walking, swimming and eating out in my spare time.
Megan purchased this Cottage in 1970
Why Megan chose Bala
We bought Plas Madog Farm just before I got married in 1975 and its in a beautiful, peaceful spot. In 1995 we moved to Glanllyn Farm/caravan Park alongside Bala lake which was my husband's original home. Plas Madog Farmhouse has been rented out since then, but we still farm the land and is also advertised on this website. Glanllyn Lodge was completely renovated by my son 15 years ago and as it is a Grade 2 listed property, we had to comply with tough regulations to keep the character of this very old cottage and in the past, has achieved a 5 star grading by the Wales Tourist Board
