This stone built 18th century watermill cottage is in the village of Llanwddyn, three miles from Lake Vyrnwy near to the Snowdonia National Park and can sleep six people in three bedrooms.

Rhiwlas Cottage is an 18th Century stone built cottage that adjoins the owner's farmhouse and is located at the head of the Vyrnwy valley in the village of Llanwddyn, three miles from Lake Vyrnwy in North Wales. This cottage has three bedrooms, two doubles (one of which has an ensuite) and one twin, as well as a bathroom with a spa bath, meaning this cottage sleeps up to six people. This cottage also contains an open plan living area with fitted kitchen, a dining area and a cosy woodburner in the sitting room. To the outside of the cottage is a lawned garden with outdoor furniture and a BBQ, along with bike storage and off road parking for three cars. Situated within an area of beautiful countryside, plus with many attractions nearby, Rhiwlas Cottage is a great base for a family holiday.


We spent a lot of money for a 5-day stay. However, upon entry we were hit by a musty smell that smelt like wet dog and it never went away. The bedrooms are fine (the bath and shower are very good) but the ground floor needs a good scrub and repainting. We had to wash everything that came out of the cupboards because of grease and food marks and I suspect the previous renters washed utensils without washing-up liquid. However, this could have been checked. There was also no real garden out the back, which wasn't an issue when we were there as it was so wet but this is a matter of principle. For the prices charged, in general this place needs tidying up as you can get spotless and beautiful cottages elsewhere for this price - e.g. in the Cotswolds, which is where we are now. We have just paid a cheaper price for a 7 day stay in a stunning cottage in Broadway, which is one of the most beautiful towns in the UK. Rhiwlas could be a good place to stay as the landscape/ scenery is stunning in the area.

Great location, enjoyed being remote yet on a working farm. Our daughter really enjoyed the sheep and cows. Cosy warm cottage with plenty of room for everyone. Enjoyed the wood burning stove too. Owner was very welcoming and helpful.
Mr Luscombe

Loved the whirlpool bath and the log fire. Great location, really relaxing, and a very welcoming and understanding owner.
Mr Harrison

A very good remote location, but easy to get to surrounding places. This was what we were looking for. The quality of accommodation exceeded our expectations. Great value for money.
Mr Coombes

We spent a week at Rhiwlas in late October as our nephew was getting married in Bala and had the reception at the nearby Lake Vyrnwy hotel. We took full advantage of the location to do some touring around. The mountain road to Bala from the North West corner of the lake is an absolutely spectacular run - just hope no-one comes to meet you! The cottage easily coped with the demands of six adults and three infants (only one mobile thank goodness).
