Sleeping five people in two bedrooms, this semi-detached cottage is next to the owners' home on the edge of Tal y Llyn lake in North Wales.

The Granary is a semi-detached cottage in a courtyard next to the owners' home a few minute's walk from the shores of Tal y Llyn Lake. There is a king-size double bedroom with an en-suite shower room (this room can be offered as a twin if required), and a family room with three single beds and an en-suite bathroom. There is also a kitchen with Belfast sink, and a sitting room with woodburning stove and dining area. Outside, there is off road parking for two cars, and a courtyard garden with furniture. The Granary is an ideal base for family or friends, to head into the mountains or relax by the lake, spectacular throughout the year.


Excellent locality and flexible accommodation, with very helpful and knowledgeable hosts. The owners made us very welcome provided us with lots of good advice on local activities. Plenty of books and children's toys too.
Mr Burns

The location was amazing and the property had been converted to a very high standard. The hosts were very friendly and accommodating and the most amazing free range eggs were available to buy.
Mrs Mountford

We have just returned from our stay at The Granary and could not have been more delighted with the accommodation. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful and the cottage itself was fully equipped with every mod con we needed yet still retained an oldy worldy feel. The beds were incredibly comfortable and the location is perfect for exploring this beautiful area. We finished up getting through two dozen of the resident chickens' eggs between 3 of us and a sack of kindle and logs (also supplied at a small cost) made for a roaring fire in the evening. Bringing a teenager to an area where there is little phone signal and no wifi is always a gamble but one that paid off when he told us it was one of the most enjoyable holidays he's ever had. Do take stout walking shoes, water bottles and a rucksack and climb nearby Cadair Idris. The feeling of achievement at the summit is something that will stay with me forever. Many, many thanks to Clive and Janice (owners) for making our stay in this idylic part of the world so memorable.

This is our second year staying at The Granary and we thoroughly enjoyed it yet again. The cottage is so cosy and welcoming to come back to and the owners were yet again so helpful and friendly.
