    “Fabulous house for my brothers 60th.”

    Loads of room and bedrooms for 20 of us. Perfect location looking down on the lake. Just be carefull taking a dog. There is a fiels attached with sheep. There is a fence but where the grass cuttings had been put it made a part of the fence very easy for the dog to jump. The farmer was very understanding but we were unable to let the out. But other than that i would highly recommend it.

The property

Tucked away on the rural outskirts of Bala, a bustling town in the heart of Gwynedd, lies this outstanding, nine-bedroom holiday home, Fron Dderw.

A large, manor-style house, boasting off-road parking, pristine lawned gardens, and magnificent views that gaze out upon Bala Lake and the surrounding Welsh countryside, this marvellous stay welcomes large families looking for a relaxing, self-catered escape within the beautiful setting of the Eryri National Park.

Park up and step into your fabulous new home-from-home, where you'll discover a plethora of tastefully-presented living spaces.

A sleek kitchen/diner awaits eager chefs who will find all the appliances they'll need to whip up delicious feasts for the whole family to enjoy across the two dining tables in the dining room.

When your bellies are full, branch out and find a spot within the home to kick back and unwind.

A plush sitting room with a Smart TV and woodburning stove awaits those looking for a chilled film night, whilst a cute snug with its very own TV, woodburning stove and ample seating offers a chance to escape and get lost within a book or partake in a boardgame with your loved ones; the games room is also available for those feeling competitive.

On longer days in warmer months, the huge, multi-level garden serves as the perfect spot for the whole group to gather to enjoy some alfresco dining with the help of a barbecue, or even just chill with a glass of your favourite tipple.

When sleep calls, you'll be spoilt for choice as nine inviting bedrooms, seven of which come with an en-suite bath or shower, await to whisk you and the family for a night of much-needed rest.

When you fancy exploring your local area, head into Bala where you'll find plenty to do and see.

Stock up on essentials at the Co-op Food, pick up some fresh meat for the barbecue from Cigydd Bala Butcher, and sit down for hearty pub lunch at The Bull's Head or Plas Yn Dre.

During your stay in town, be sure to head out onto the water by hiring a kayak from the Bala Adventure and Watersports Centre, or even embark on a scenic walk or bike ride along the many pathways and cycle trails that traverse the awe-inspiring mountain ranges of Aran and Arenig.

About the location

BALA

Corwen 11 miles; Dolgellau 18 miles; Llangollen 22 miles; Betws-y-Coed 29 miles.

The bustling market town of Bala lies within the beautiful Snowdonia National Park and is located at the head of Llyn Tegid, Bala’s famous lake, which is the largest natural lake in Wales and home to a unique fish called the Gwyniad, a relic of the Ice Age. Renowned as a centre for great watersports including fishing, sailing, canoeing, windsurfing and whitewater rafting, Bala is also the headquarters of the narrow gauge Bala Lake Railway. The town itself is steeped in history and has a range of interesting shops, inns and restaurants, and an historical Town Walk. Surrounded by the wonderful Berwyn Mountains on one side and the beautiful Snowdonia Mountain Range on the other, this is a mecca for climbing, walking, mountain biking and many other outdoor activities. An ideal location for touring all of North and Mid Wales including the stunning Cambrian Bay Coast with the six-mile long Harlech Beach, overlooked by its majestic medieval castle. A truly wonderful part of Wales catering for all interests.

Note: Internal steps are present; 3 steps up to the ground floor bedroom, one step up to the kitchen from the main hall and lounge area, one step up out of the kitchen into the boot room, one step into the back snug and one step up into the downstairs toilet.
Note: Dog Charge £25 per dog per stay
