    Meet Clwyd ..

    '' Hello everyone, a warm welcome to you all to all awaits at my property in Bala North Wales, which is a true Welsh speaking community. I am a Welsh speaker myself and very proud of my heritage and home. Rain or shine there is always something for everyone in Brackendale. My home is a stunning 19th century town house that is situated in the heart of Bala Town. With all local shops and pubs close by its an ideal hub for groups or families wanting to explore North Wales with true home comforts close by.
    Bala is the perfect place to visit, we have so many fun things to do whether it be water sports on the lake or white water rafting in one of the best centres in the UK. Being a hiker myself I would also suggest any of the many mountains we have close by like the Aran and Cader Idris. You won't be disappointed booking with us, I'm really proud of the work I've done with the house over the years and I'm sure you will be more than happy with what you find. Happy Holidays-Gwyliau Hapus! Diolch ''

Beautiful Home 5/5

Well equipped beautiful home. Only downside is the games room isn’t enclosed and the only access to the hot tub is from a thin spiral staircase that’s not the easiest to climb with a small toddler. All in all we had a beautiful stay and Elly who looks after the house couldn’t have been more accommodating. House is a great location for exploring Bala and North Wales.
