We have had a great holiday in YBeudy in october. The cottage was perfect and we felt so welcome. Coming all the way from Holland and not used to drive on your mountainroads it was so great to arrive in such a beautiful, warm cottage. Sioned welcomed us so warm and friendly. And what an amazing view! We'll certainly come back next october. Thank you so much for this perfect holiday.

Stayed in carreg y nant in October this year and absolutely loved it. Amazing lodge with lovely views and the perfect way to relax. Sioned, the owner was very welcoming and nothing was too much of an ask. Would highly recommend this place to anyone and will definitely return in the future!

We went to Bala cottages for my 30th birthday and stayed in Y Beudy. The whole family came along including three young children. We were amazed at the beauty of the cottage, especially the open plan of the cottage. It was very spacious, had it's own hot tub and the surrounding area/environment was breathtaking. When we arrived there was homemade cake waiting for us and the owner even popped in to welcome us. There was lots to do including visiting Bala town and lake and going on long walks in the countryside. The only problem was we hadn't booked to stay longer!!! We would definitely recommend these cottages.

We stayed in Y Beudy for the weekend at the end of September 2012 with close friends. We were 2 families with 4 children aged 5-9. This converted barn has been decorated and furnished to an excellent standard providing comfortable and relaxing accommodation that we would love to return to. The views from the property are outstanding, in particular from the galleried bedroom and hot tub outside. Sioned is a fantastically warm and helpful host. If we stayed longer we would definitely try the home cooking she offers next time. We were able to look around the other cottages and have these in mind for a future family gathering. It is excellent accommodation in a beautiful part of North Wales where there is loads for families to do.

A marvellous 2 week stay even if the sun didn't shine! Y Beudy is a lovely cottage with plenty of space for little ones to run around. The hot tub was a real bonus with fab views to boot. Sioned couldn't have made us feel more welcome. Many thanks.

We have just spent a lovely week in Carreg Y Nant cottage, you couldn't ask for more, spotlessly clean, safe for children, fantastic views, lovely hot tub & great hosts Sioned & Gareth with the added bonus if you don't want to cook during your stay Sioned will do it for you & deliver to your door at your required time... and what a great cook she is, it was nice to have a meal cooked for us on our first night after a long journey. Thank you for a really relaxing time Sioned & Gareth, look forward to seeing you in the future grin

We chose to stay for a short break recently to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary with our daughters. We all had a thouroughly relaxing time, the cottage was beautiful and clean and we will definately be booking again. Already our daughters are talking about an annual visit, many thanks for a lovely holiday

We had a terrific time at the cottages. Our three girls enjoyed their stay there immensely. They particularly liked the food that Sioned provided on our first and second nights. We highly recommend you try one of her dishes. They loved the landscape as well. We found the cottages to be very comfortable - clean and warm (we were there over the October half term) and Sioned and Gareth were perfect hosts.

We had such a great time staying at the great cottage, Carreg Y Nant. The cottage is decked out with everything you need for a 5 year old and baby and it's very bright and spacious. Sioned and Gareth clearly understand what parents need to be able to relax on holiday, i.e safe play areas for the kids and hot tub for the parents! Sioned was great for recommending places to go and eat. We highly recommend this as a place to stay!

We would all thoroughly recommend this gorgeous cottage, Carreg Y Nant, where the attention to detail is fantastic. In a tranquil location, with a fabulous hot tub and a superb play area for children. Thank you Sioned and Gareth for making sure our every need was catered for. We must also mention the local pub, The Eagle Inn which serves great food.

We had a wonderful week here, the cottage was a perfect place to relax and Sioned made us feel very welcome. After a long day's walking the hot tub was put to good use - a fabulous treat. We were joined for one night by our brother and sister in law who described the cottage as a "top gaff!". A well equipped and beautifully presented holiday home in a quiet and picturesque location, we would definitely recommend a stay here.

We decided to book a romantic weekend holiday at the very last minute to celebrate my birthday and found it very difficult to book anything reasonably priced with a hot tub at such short notice in North Wales. Thankfully I stumbled across Bala Cottages and Careg Y Nant was still available. Sioned offered a really good last minute deal that we couldn't refuse and with her enthusiasm and generous spirit we knew we were in for a wonderful time! We arrived on a beautiful sunny day to a gorgeous cottage with a chilled bottle of bubbly in the fridge and a sweet treat of ginger cake and fudge, compliments of Sioned; a lovely touch that really made us feel welcome. Within no time at all we were wrapped up in our white fluffy robes and matching slippers and heading for the very secluded hot tub. We were after a romantic retreat and a romantic retreat is certainly what we got! The hot tub is in ideal location on the grounds for an evening of relaxtion and the pictures online don't do justice to the maginficant view. Very peaceful. Each day was spent exploring the national park and each night was spent watching the stars! An ideal break from city living. Thank you for a wonderful stay, Sioned, we only wish we could have stayed longer. We will certainly be back soon!

We stayed in Y-Beudy 9th - 13th February with close friends and must say that the photo's do not do this cottage justice at all, the views from the barn and hot tub were stunning. We had a perfect few days enjoying the near by walks taking in the waterfalls and forests in the surrounding ares. Perfect just perfect - come and see for yourself you wont be disappointed.

We had a lovely time staying in the cottages in November. It may have rained the whole time but our holiday was great as the cottage was so nice and had everything we needed. Lots of nice little touches like the cake and tea on arrival and the whole place was delightful. We will be back! Thank you.

We spent a lovely week in Y Beudy from 29th October. What a fantastic barn coversion. The cottage was beautifully decorated and equipped and we spent many lovely days simply relaxing and enjoying the views. At times the weather outside was wet and windy but this didn't spoil our holiday. Being in the hot tub at night under the stars was truly magical. We had lovely days out a Betws-y-coed and Llandudno.

What a sensational view (in bright sunshine or mist) from the upstairs balcony of Tyddyn Lliw! It was exactly as shown on your gallery. The position allowed us to easily travel to Caernarfon Castle and to admire Snowdonia National Park on the way and was so peaceful.
