Cottage Nr Bala - Create great memories: birthday treat, engagements, romantic escapes, family fun, adventures or just relax!
Situated six miles N.E. of Bala, the world-renowned water sports centre on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park; this is unquestionably one of the most beautiful regions of Wales. With easy access to Snowdon, Betws-y-Coed, Harlech, Llangollen, Chester and Anglesey, ideally located to take advantage of the many activities and sights that the spectacular Snowdonia National Park has to offer.
There are many market towns, historic castles and beautiful gardens within a short distance and for the more adventurous, I can definitely recommend the pony trekking in Betws-y-Coed, mountain biking in Llandegla or the white-water rafting and canoeing in Bala; it just depends on how energetic you are feeling! If you just fancy a bit of walking there are some fantastic walks right from the doorstep.
There are plenty of places to eat out in Bala and the local pub/restaurant, The Goat, is only a 10 minute drive away. We always recommend Abul's Spice in Corwen or the Bryntirion Inn in Llandderfel (both around a 15 minute drive), and there are also some great places in Llangollen. For a very special night, you might want to try Tyddyn Llan, a Michelin Star restaurant in Llandrillo.
Tudor Cottage is completely separate from The Granary and completely isolated from neighbours (half a mile away) and road noise. It has its own private garden and parking right outside the front door.
• The cottages are right up to date with perfect mobile phone reception for all networks, broadband and Sky TV with a full package of sports and movies for when you just want to relax.
• Particularly suitable for those who suffer from allergies and asthma; all the bedding including pillows and duvets are hypoallergenic and all the floors are either wood or tiled. We also operate a no smoking/no pet policy in order to accommodate guests with these conditions.

About Linda Lee
Lawrence (husband) and I are in our early 50s and we bought Hafod Tudur in 1989 after living in Chester so we have owned to cottages for the last 26 years! We travel the world as part of Lawrence's job and have used all the things that we like (and don't!) about booking accommodation to shape how we approach sharing The Granary and Tudor Cottage. If we want to book somewhere we want to know straight away if it's available and what the cost will be, so we always endeavour to keep our calendars up to date and to answer emails within an hour or two. We always try to be as flexible as we can with dates and can usually accommodate most requests. We also hope we have created 'a home from home' in the cottages and have hopefully made things how most people would want them.
Linda Lee purchased this Cottage in 1989
Why Linda Lee chose Llandderfel
We fell in love with Hafod Tudur as soon as we saw it, it is off the beaten track but still accessible for the main roads, shops and amenities and the views are amazing!! Where we are located is the best thing - most people just travel through here on the way to the North or West coasts so we are often overlooked here but the benefits of that are that you are only ever 1 hour away from Barmouth or Harlech on the West Coast or Anglesey or Llandudno to the North. If you want to explore Chester in England or most parts of Mid Wales then they are only an hour away and even a highly recommended day out in Liverpool can be yours in an hour and a half. One nice thing for us personally is that we can walk out of the cottage door and not meet a single person or cross a single road for miles!
What makes this Cottage unique
You can do whatever you like here - if you want to relax and 'escape' from the world then you can; if you want a romantic escape with the partner of your dreams - it's yours. If you want to get out there with horse riding, white water rafting, mountain biking or fishing - you can. If you want to take your family to the beach or to visit one of the may castles, National Trust properties or gardens around here, do it. If you don't want to go anywhere (and lots of people don't when they get here) then we have: the lake with canoes, diving platform and slide and fishing - the hot tub and sauna, games room with pool table darts and table tennis - the field with badminton and disc golf course (4 holes) - all here for you to enjoy and these are all only shared with Tudor Cottage or The Granar

Nothing less than perfection!
As someone who leads a hectic life, I continually look forward to returning to The Tudor Cottage and I never tire of it. Linda and Laurence have thought of every last detail to ensure that you will have the perfect stay and as soon as you arrive you will feel totally relaxed. The cottage is a hidden gem and if you want to explore you also have the option to, as the location is not far from local amenities and tourist spots. Personally, from experience, you will be enticed by the peaceful views (especially from the hot tub) and you will not want to leave. I can not recommend booking here enough as it holds a very special place in our hearts. If you want to take yourself away from the stresses and strains of life to somewhere where you wake up with fresh eggs, total calmness, relaxation, peace and owners who are genuinely concerned with you enjoying your stay, then this place is for you.
Beautiful location and wonderful home
Stayed for 2 nights with my 2 friends and couldn’t have picked a better location for a relaxing weekend away. Linda the owner is lovely, she was there to greet us and show us around but then left us to explore ourselves. The Tudor cottage is lovely, it had every amenity we could need. I have no problem recommending this property and the fresh eggs from the hen house was a novelty! Thanks Linda for the use of your beautiful home.
A Luxury Relaxing Retreat
Thank you to Linda and Lawrence for another great stay in Tudur Cottage. Once again, immaculately presented and nothing is too much trouble for them. They were telling us about plans to upgrade the properties which will make the fantastic even better. We have now stayed here 6 or 7 times and will keep going back as for us, it’s the perfect relaxing break. Whether you want the peaceful break or you want something a little bit more active, this place makes an ideal base. The hot tub on the Hill is also a great experience either watching the sun go down or it come up again! Just take a warm dressing gown in the Winter months as it can feel very bitterly cold when getting out... Lawrence gave us a little recommendation for a new restaurant in Corwen called Old Wives Tales, Once again, a fantastic find and very impressive artisan food at realistic prices.
Once again, thanks Linda and Lawrence for making our stay a very relaxing enjoyable one. You only have to read the guest comments book to see that everybody enjoys it here. I couldn’t find a bad comment from several years of comments - We can honestly say book and stay here and you will not be disappointed.... Tony and Andrea
Beautiful home from home
Such a beautiful, peaceful and relaxing place to spend a few days away on our own away from the stresses and strains of family and work life. From the moment that we booked to the day that we arrived we were made to feel welcome at this wonderful property. We both said that if we had the chance we would live there, spending our days walking, cycling, taking in the picturesque views of this area of Wales from the hot tub (ideally situated) and then going into the lovely warm sauna afterwards. We have both said that we will be back whether it is just the two of us or with our son. We are going to recommend this property and the adjacent property to all our friends and family. Although I know a lot of people will shout at us as you have to be quick to book as you'll never get the opportunity to stay in this wonderful place.
Tudor cottage is a magical place, I would definitely recommend.
We were a party of three exploring Snowdonia so it suited us perfectly as we could hop it the jacuzzi after a long walk in the snow. The house was very well renovated with attention paid to every detail. It was always worm even with the snow outside and the owners were very accommodating, we were very well looked after.
Fantastic place to stay, was everything that was advertised and more, amazing place to stay!
We couldn’t recommend this cottage enough, everything was perfect! Lots to do but also the perfect place to relax and just take in the scenery! The owners were very accommodating and friendly and made sure we were settled in when we arrived. We would highly recommend staying at this cottage!
The beauty of this location is that you are never too far from anywhere in North Wales; travel West for one hour and you will find Barmouth, Porthmadog, Portmeirion and Harlech on the West cost - travel North for one hour and you will find Llandudno and Conwy castle on the North Coast. If you want to do some shopping and see the historical town of Chester, then that is only a one hour drive to the East.
Rates & Availability
Additional information about rental rates
Booking Notes: If you do want to go ahead and book the costs shown do include all heating, electricity, towels and linen, sauna and hot tub use, Wi-Fi and Sky TV, there would be nothing else to pay. The only things we ask for a contribution towards are the washing machine and tumble drier if you use them and any ‘pay to view’ programmes on Sky. All we would need now is a deposit of £100 with the balance 6 weeks prior to arrival; I would show the cottage as booked as soon as you let me know and would email confirmation as soon as we receive your payment - we can accept card payments and there is no charge for that but our preferred method of payment is by bank transfer - we would send you the details. I do hope all this suits you, if you have any further questions at all or any special requests please don't hesitate to get in touch at any time. I really can guarantee you would not be disappointed with either the cottage or the area, both are quite special. Our check in times are 2pm and we would ask that you check out by 10am but we can be flexible on this if there is nobody in before or after you. Best regards Linda
