Things to do


Dolgadfa and Llanerch have their own fishing on a beat of the Dee exclusively for guests of Bala Cottage Holidays. Running for ¾ mile, it is widely regarded as one of Europe’s finest grayling rivers; it also offers fly fishing for grayling, salmon, trout, and sea trout. Considerable river bank management work has benefited fish habitat as well as the biodiversity


We have breathtaking scenery in this part of the world: the Berwyn Mountains and Dee Valley are on the doorstep of our holiday cottages, and Crogen Estate has wonderfully diverse land within its boundaries. A short drive takes you to Arenig and Aran Mountains, and of course, there is the wonderful Snowdonia National Park. We think that this part of North Wales has some of the most beautiful walking you will find.
