Dixon & Marie
Romantic Welsh Self-Catering Holiday Cottage • Luxurious accommodation sleeping up to 4 people, in the heart of North Wales • Near Bala and its Lake on the edge of Snowdonia National Park Experience cottage life and rural village living in the stunning scenery of North Wales. Imagine yourself waking up in this glorious, detached, stone built Welsh cottage looking up at the wooden roof beams of the vaulted bedroom and then look out of the window over to green rolling hillside and trees. Take a long breakfast in the kitchen whilst gazing out of the windows to the open fields to the side where horses and chickens roam with hilltops in the distance. Have a hot shower or laze in the bath whilst deciding what to do for the day, stay in and take in the quiet, rural location of the cottage (built around 1840) and its views from the garden and look over the stream running down its side over to the surrounding fields. Relax in the living room with the log burner, beamed ceilings and pretty cottage windows. You can also use the light, airy sunroom at the back overlooking the garden to sit down and read a good book. It's up to you, no timetable, you're not at work, it's your choice.
Marie and Myself (Dixon) stayed at Bwthyn Bach and loved it so much, we bought the cottage! We have holidayed in Wales many times together whilst we have been married over the many past years, I myself used to holiday with my parents every year in Wales and have fond memories of those days, this has always driven us to find a property of our own in the beautiful Welsh mountains. After years of hard work and investment we have finally bought our dream, the cottage. Ther cottage interior is by Anna Hart, a well known interior designer in Nottingham, who helped get the feel of the cottage just right, her brief was simple, "We want guests to come and experience living in a rural Welsh Cottage and for the duration of their stay we want them to feel like it's THEIR home". For now we want you to share our home in Wales as if it was yours. Please enjoy it and love it and let us know if there's anything stopping you from leaving it more or less as you found it.
What are the three most important things to consider about any property? Well, as any estate agent will tell you, they are location, location and location, and with the cottage being situated at the eastern gateway to the Snowdonia National Park, the location could hardly be better. Snowdonia National Park is an area of theatrical scenery with green and rocky mountains, vast valleys and lots and lots of water in rivers, waterfalls and lakes scattered all over the 2,170 square kilometres of North West Wales that it covers. The biggest natural lake in Wales is also in easy reach. Bala Lake (Llyn Tegid) is at about 4 miles long, and up to 1 mile wide and is a haven for both human and wind-powered water sports. Sailors, windsurfers and kayakers will all be delighted with Bala Lake and its facilities. You can also swim in the lake, but beware, it is also rumoured to be home to Tegi, the lake's own legendary monster, many have claimed to see it but there's no photos! The other main lakes in the area are Llyn Efyrnwy, Llyn Celyn, Llyn Brenig, Cregennen and Tal y Llyn. You can easily visit all the lakes in a single day but why rush? The area has so much more to offer.
