The cottage was beautiful and had all the facilities that we needed. It was really a perfectly beautiful setting and we had a wonderful time. The owners were so friendly and helpful. The hot tub was a brilliant feature of our holiday from soothing aching muscles after climbing Snowdon to just sitting in it watching the night sky clouds and stars. Just a fabulous setting for a perfect holiday.

This was a fantastic property ideally situated for explorations of the stunning scenery of Snowdonia and the Berwyn mountains. The hosts were extremely kind and helpful and attentive to all our needs. The three families visiting enjoyed a fantastic week soaking up the scenery, eating together in the spacious kitchen and relaxing in front of the wood burner in the lounge. The whole building was incredibly well decorated and the hot tub was a lovely extra. We spent several evenings eating outdoors, sipping sparkly and admiring the stars! What could be better! Fabulous!

The property was the best house we have ever stayed in, which totally made our holiday enjoyable

The Farm House was a superb property with great facilities and was very comfortable. The best self catering property we've stayed in.

Seven of us stayed in the house. Every room was lovely & beautifully furnished so no arguments over room allocations! Every single one of us plan on returning with our families.

An excellent property, it was the perfect size and very well equipped. All the bedrooms were excellent.

By far, The Farm House was the best property we, as a family have stayed in over the past 8 years. The spacious house and high quality carpets and curtains made it the quietest one we have stayed in for everyone to get a great nights sleep in very comfortable beds. Fantastic woodburner with superb dry logs supplied by the owners very efficient as was the central heating - great after wet but thoroughly enjoyable days out. Relaxation in the Hot Tub splendid. Perfect location to enjoy Bala lake kayaking, Treetops Adventure Park and a visit to Chester Zoo. Definitely recommend staying at this very comfortable house and, for the first time, we are considering returning to this property instead of searching for something else. Many thanks to the owner for such a superb holiday home.

It was great to be able to be together in one house .The Farm House has been beautifully decorated and was fresh and clean. The whole house has been refurbished to a very high standard.

A fantastic house. It was decorated and furnished to a high standard and it was really clean. It worked well for a group of 3 families with young children. I would recommend this property and the area.

What an absolutely stunning house. Renovated to an extremely high standard and with all of the comfort we could have asked for. The owners were lovely and helped us out with everything we needed. We particularly loved the hot tub and BBQ, although everything else was just perfect.

A beautiful grand farm house. The pictures do no do this property justice. It was so lovely and warm, me and my friends and family felt at home instantly when we got there. A wonderful spacious home. It's suitably located for some of the adventurous activities North Wales has to offer. I am already planning my return to The Farm House this summer.

Wonderful weekend break

Had such a great, relaxing time at The Farm House. Lots of space, beautifully decorated and very peaceful. Hosts Jane and Geraint looked after us well. Great for family gatherings or catch up time with friends. Hot tub is lovely! Get it booked, you won’t regret it!

Great house for a family get together

This house is spacious and very comfortable. It has lovely bathrooms and beautiful furnishings. We were an adult family get together. Everyone chose the room they wanted and there was no disagreement. The rooms with no en-suite are larger with great views and the family bathroom stunning. The owners were on site if you have any questions or need help, Geraint kindly lent us his tools when we had a flat tyre. We were given some great recommendations, the butcher in Bala is very good. I would definitely stay here again for the ease of getting to places of interest in North and West Wales and the comfort.

Amazing property for a family celebration

We stayed here for a week over Easter, family of 12 and had an amazing time. The house provides enough space for everyone to have their own time but still offered plenty of room for quality family time. We absolutely loved the hot tub & log burner. The property offers everything you would need from great cooking facilities to board games to a movie room. We were spoilt for choice. The Owners were really attentive & thoughtful. We would all definitely return. Location was great for Snowdon and Lots of other surroundings towns & villages.

Absolutely amazing

“We visited first weekend of February and the farmhouse blew us away when we arrived. The house is beautiful, initial photos on the site just didn’t do it justice, all of us said how much better it was in real life. The kitchen is fully equipped which allowed us to cook all weekend, with a separate laundry room allowing for any laundry you made need to do. All the bedrooms were to a very high standard with most having ensuite. The hot tub was private enclosed in a private garden attached to the house, with stunning views. The owners were amazing, ringing the night before to check we were ok and knew where we were going, to checking on us on the Friday both by phone and person. They had to check the hot tub daily by law which they did with minimum disruption to us as a group. They were extremely helpful, accommodating and friendly in every way. All of us said we would have no hesitation to rebook. Thank you Mr and Mrs Evans for an amazing break

Wonderful weekend break

We stayed for a weekend in January 2018. The farmhouse is idyllic and provided options for walks locally or further afield. The house itself is beautiful and decorated and maintained to a high standard. The photos do not do it justice. It is well equipped with amenities and equipment for self catering. Would not hesitate to return. The owners were super helpful and friendly in all our correspondence.

Fantastic way to celebrate the new year!!

As a family group of 7 adults and 4 children we were looking for somewhere big enough to bring in 2018 together. We were not disappointed! The accommodation was clean and extremely spacious. The owners were lovely and friendly and the farmhouse had all facilities we could have wanted and more. Will definitely be back!

Perfect place for 12 to stay for Christmas.

A great house with plenty of room for 3 families to enjoy a relaxing xmas break, The bedrooms are all of a good size with 3 having excellent en suite facilities. What a great utility room providing all the hot water you could want including topping up the hot tub on numerous occasions, extra fridge for beer and prosecco, ironing board, washing machine & separate dryer. It has a cosy log burning front room and a large play room with large screen tv for all of ones gaming needs. Essential for 6 kids. The owners are very welcoming, the nearest shop is only 1.15 km away and there is a cafe next door that does a great "All day breakfast! The surrounding countryside is beautiful with some great walks. The only criticism would be for more work top space and a bigger sink in the huge kitchen.

Brilliant Stay!

As a group of couples & friends in our late twenties we were looking for an exclusive use house with a hot tub that would sleep us all comfortably. This house was perfect! The kitchen was the feature of the house with the majority of our time spent there (or in the hot tub!) The house is decorated and furnished to a high standard and close to both Bala and Llangollen. It is worth noting that we felt the pictures online didn't do the house justice and we wouldn't hesitate recommending the house to anyone looking for an exclusive use property in North Wales 🙂

I highly recommend this amazing cottage

Myself and six of my workmates booked this cottage to stay in whilst we walked up snowdon. The cottage was fantastic. Each room is beautifully furnished so no arguments over room allocations. The hot tub is well maintained & helped our aching muscles after our hike up snowdon. The house is situated close to lots of activities. The owners Jane & Geraint are very helpful & welcoming. We had a fantastic fun wkend away which had a lot to do with this fab cottage.

Fantastic house for a group of families

We stayed at the farmhouse in May half term. There were three families with 6 adults and 6 children. The house worked really well it is decorated to a high standard and very clean. The kitchen has a large table which sat all 12 of us and the kitchen was well equiped. The bedrooms and bathrooms were all really nice. The hot tub was great and well maintained. The garden was enclosed which is good for young children. The owners were helpful and were able to provide cot, high chair and stair gates. There was plenty to do in the area and we had a fantastic holiday. I would strongly recommend this holiday property.

High Quality accommodation in great location

A wonderful house, finished to a high standard in a great location. Ideal for Large groups / families - very spacious. Large kitchen / diner. Sitting room a little snug for party of 12, but we found that the children spent most of their time in the playroom or garden so was not a problem. Children loved the hot tub even in April!! Owners Jane & Geraint very helpful. Ideal location for exploring North Wales - in particular Snowdon, Blaenau Ffestiniog for Zip World / Bounce Below, Ruthin, Harlech, Barmouth and Cricceth (for beaches) all accessible within approx 1 hour.
