About the property

Lovely cottage - great views

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.

• Towels, bed linen and tea towels provided.

• Private gardens not overlooked by anyone, secure shed for bikes etc.

• BBQ and garden furniture, outdoor table tennis table.

• Laundry room in a separate barn with washer and dryer.

• Games room with full-sized pool table, table tennis and dart board.

• Hot tub with fantastic views for over 30 miles.

• Sauna.

• Ample private parking.

• Picnic benches in idyllic places with great views.

• Set in 18 acres with several beautiful picnic areas and a small lake (well fenced off) for canoeing, swimming and fishing.

• Great cycling tracks at Llandegla, Coed y Brenin, Betws y Coed & Penmachno.

• Secure garage, bike stand and power washer available.

• Great fishing area.

Bring your bikes, swimming costumes, binoculars, walking boots, fishing gear, books, beer, wine, factor 25 or whatever you need for the perfect holiday for you.

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 Corwen

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

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.

Notes

Booking Notes:
If you do want to go ahead and book the costs shown do include all heating (including logs & coal), 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

Cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

Lovely place, so peaceful and quiet, the hot tub was great. We went in every night after a great day sight seeing. If there was one complaint it was not enough towels could do with 2 more of each. Plenty to do around the cottage games room, frisbee golf, hot tub small lake and plenty of walks

Relaxing way from it all

  • 5 of 5

Another stay at this delightful hideaway. Set in an isolated position but close to Bala (if needed) this is an ideal getaway to relax and forget about the stressful world.

With Sauna, Hot Tub, Disc Golf it's so easy to just spend time doing nothing much.

We shall return...
