Attractions in Snowdonia


Llanerch and Dolgadfa 031SNOWDON

There are many fantastic reasons to come and stay here at Bala Cottage Holidays.  With Snowdon only a 45 minute drive away, the national park awaits.

We have some great mountains on the doorstep too for walking, the Berwyn Mountains, Aran and Arenig either side of Bala lake, again wonderful walks where you will rarely meet anyone!  There are also walks for the not so fit!  Bala Lake itself has some nice walks near  by and the River Dee (Bala Lake being the source).

We do provide some OS maps at the cottages for the local area, we are happy for you to borrow them, also John and myself have climbed many mountains in the are ourselves so can help and advise with any questions you may have.

We do suggest however that you only wear walking boots (not trainers) if you our going hill walking, plus all the appropriate clothing, from suncream to wet weather gear, as the weather can change in an instance in the hills, luckily everyone has mobiles now, but always good not to totally rely on the reception.  Good idea to let someone know where you are going and when just in case!
