Lovely house set in a beautiful and peaceful setting.. The house was spacious and with everything we needed, kitchen is the heart of the house which we spent much time in. The green area at the side of the house was great for the children and the ‘big’ kids!! Owners very helpful and friendly, nothing was too much trouble. Hopefully looking to return next year.

The Farmhouse is a perfect house for friends and family celebrations.. All the bedrooms are spacious. The big kitchen was a great place to socialise. The hot tub was brilliant as was the games room. The owners were very helpful and accommodating

Well equipped house, clean, facilities of a high standard , hot tub checked daily, welcome pack left in the kitchen.. We were greeted by the friendly owners on arrival. Plenty of room for off road parking, we had 6 cars parked there. Rooms were a good size as were the bedrooms

Just spent a four day weekend at The Farm House and it was great myself and 10 friends have an annual early Christmas and the house was perfect.. Plenty of space for a big group, very comfortable, the hot tub was great fun. We had such a great time we have booked again for next years trip!

17th August 2019 to 24th August 2019 The whole family (8) had a brilliant week holidaying in this lovely house which accommodated our every need.. The hot tub was also a great addition, the views from all the windows and hot tub were just wonderful. The house is situated ideally for access to so many wonderful days out and we had many. Geraint and Jane are great hosts and did everything to make us welcome - Thank you, we hope to return. from the Hursts, the Costellos and the Stokes.
Mrs Hurst, August 2019
July 2019
The house was extremely dirty.. I have a few pictures which highlight this. For the money paid I expected it to be spotless. There was a horrific smell from the main bathroom and one of the en suites which eventually led to us being unable to use the bathroom as the smell was so over powering. Not the home owners fault but there were a number of flies and wasp. In regards to the cleaning there were a number of dead flies around the house. It was a great shame as the property itself was amazing. The owners were not around until the Thursday so we were unable to mention anything. We did talk on that day but we were going out so was a quick chat.
Mrs Wiseman, July 2019

The house was fantastic, well equiped and incredibly clean.. The kids particularly loved the hottub (which was maintained and cleaned everyday) and the grass area behind to kick around the football. The hosts were warm and friendly and on hand for any queries that arose. Loved staying here would highly recommend it.

The Farm House is a fabulous place for a group of up to 12 people to stay, it has large well appointed rooms, the bedrooms in particular were lovely.. We also took full advantage of the hot tub!
Mrs Brown

The farmhouse was just as described.. Very clean and the hot tub was great. It was warm and there was plenty of hot water for all the bathrooms. Gerant popped in to say hello and check we were ok. Jane has provided a lovely welcome tray to with local produce . Would recommend the house and location fir a large family gathering
Mrs Gibbons

There was 6 adults, 3 children and 2 toddlers and we all had a really enjoyable holiday.. The cottage was gorgeous and spacious. Would highly recommend to people.
Mrs Gierat
August 2018
Where to start? Beautiful accommodation...so spacious and never felt like we were all on top of each other. Geraint and Jane the owners were lovely people and really approachable and brought us extra saucepans for our Sunday roast. The kitchen is huge!! And lovely we could all sit around the table to eat together. Utility room was great especially if you had clothes that needed washing before returning home. Log burner was cosy in the evenings and all beds were comfy. The bath in the main bathroom was so deep, great to have a soak whilst looking out the window at the view. The hot tub was just splendid! Especially after our long days out. Really could have stayed 2 weeks or never left at all. Thank you we will be returning for sure

This house is spacious and very comfortable. It has lovely bathrooms and beautiful furnishings. We were an adult family get together. Everyone chose the room they wanted and there was no disagreement. The rooms with no en-suite are larger with great views and the family bathroom stunning. The owners were on site if you have any questions or need help, Geraint kindly lent us his tools when we had a flat tyre. We were given some great recommendations, the butcher in Bala is very good. I would definitely stay here again for the ease of getting to places of interest in North and West Wales and the comfort.

We stayed here for a week over Easter, family of 12 and had an amazing time. The house provides enough space for everyone to have their own time but still offered plenty of room for quality family time. We absolutely loved the hot tub & log burner. The property offers everything you would need from great cooking facilities to board games to a movie room. We were spoilt for choice. The Owners were really attentive & thoughtful. We would all definitely return. Location was great for Snowdon and Lots of other surroundings towns & villages.

Lovely cottage with great hosts who checked regularly that things were ok.. Was warm inside even when it was snowing outside. Very large kitchen and utility room where you could store bikes and do washing after a muddy walk. Thanks for a lovely week

As a family group of 7 adults and 4 children we were looking for somewhere big enough to bring in 2018 together. We were not disappointed! The accommodation was clean and extremely spacious. The owners were lovely and friendly and the farmhouse had all facilities we could have wanted and more. Will definitely be back!

We stayed for a weekend in January 2018. The farmhouse is idyllic and provided options for walks locally or further afield. The house itself is beautiful and decorated and maintained to a high standard. The photos do not do it justice. It is well equipped with amenities and equipment for self catering. Would not hesitate to return. The owners were super helpful and friendly in all our correspondence.

Had a fantastic holiday at the cottage.. The owners were great and nothing was too much for them. They even sent my partner a birthday card. Really friendly. The house it self was amazing. Warm and cosy and plenty of space. We look forward to returning soon

Absolutely amazing house.. Perfect owners. We were originally a little concerned that they were so close, but they were perfect! Popped round to introduce themselves the first day, made sure we knew how to contact them, but otherwise they just let us get on and enjoy their beautiful spacious house. Hot tub was lovely. And the owner checked levels etc every morning, so no horrible chlorine smell/taste. Wonderful holiday in a gorgeous location.

The Farm House at Bala was a fantastic property with superb facilities.. It was a great location from which to base our planned excursions for the week. I will definitely consider re-booking this cottage.

Warm and cosy farmhouse.. Nicely situated and we were well looked after by helpful hosts. Our group of eight all loved the spacious accommodation and its comfort which contributed greatly to our enjoyable week in Wales. Great to come back to at the end of the day.
Mr Turner, March 2017
February 2017
We had a really lovely week at The Farm House.. The house itself was very spacious, beautifully decorated with an enormous kitchen-diner and ensuites to three of the bedrooms. The hot tub was an added bonus! The only slight niggle was that wifi was variable, but obviously this is often the case with rural locations and the panorama more than made up for it. Jane, the owner, couldn't have been more welcoming or helpful, and the lady who came to clean at the end of our stay was equally as friendly - it felt like they really cared about us having an enjoyable stay. We ate at two fantastic local restaurants - Palé Hall and Tyddyn Llan. Both were very good and were able to cater for our party with a vegan diner, but we found Palé Hall to be a particularly special experience. We feel sure they will be getting a Michelin Star very soon (we were told they had been in the week before). The restaurant at Rhug Farm was also fantastic at adapting their menu to make it vegan. We would be very keen to come back to the Farm House later in the year when more local attractions are open. Thanks again for a really lovely stay.

A great house with plenty of room for 3 families to enjoy a relaxing xmas break, The bedrooms are all of a good size with 3 having excellent en suite facilities. What a great utility room providing all the hot water you could want including topping up the hot tub on numerous occasions, extra fridge for beer and prosecco, ironing board, washing machine & separate dryer. It has a cosy log burning front room and a large play room with large screen tv for all of ones gaming needs. Essential for 6 kids. The owners are very welcoming, the nearest shop is only 1.15 km away and there is a cafe next door that does a great "All day breakfast! The surrounding countryside is beautiful with some great walks. The only criticism would be for more work top space and a bigger sink in the huge kitchen.

Amazing property.. We have stayed here 3 times now. Great for larger groups with the 3 ensuites and another bathroom. The property also has a very large kitchen and 2 living rooms. Also a very large utility room where you can leave your bikes. The owners have a small caravan park next door but this doesn't impact on your stay at all. The house has its own entrance and privacy. The owners are lovely and are a phone call away if you need anything.

The cottage was beautiful and had all the facilities that we needed. It was really a perfectly beautiful setting and we had a wonderful time. The owners were so friendly and helpful. The hot tub was a brilliant feature of our holiday from soothing aching muscles after climbing Snowdon to just sitting in it watching the night sky clouds and stars. Just a fabulous setting for a perfect holiday.

This was a fantastic property ideally situated for explorations of the stunning scenery of Snowdonia and the Berwyn mountains. The hosts were extremely kind and helpful and attentive to all our needs. The three families visiting enjoyed a fantastic week soaking up the scenery, eating together in the spacious kitchen and relaxing in front of the wood burner in the lounge. The whole building was incredibly well decorated and the hot tub was a lovely extra. We spent several evenings eating outdoors, sipping sparkly and admiring the stars! What could be better! Fabulous!

By far, The Farm House was the best property we, as a family have stayed in over the past 8 years. The spacious house and high quality carpets and curtains made it the quietest one we have stayed in for everyone to get a great nights sleep in very comfortable beds. Fantastic woodburner with superb dry logs supplied by the owners very efficient as was the central heating - great after wet but thoroughly enjoyable days out. Relaxation in the Hot Tub splendid. Perfect location to enjoy Bala lake kayaking, Treetops Adventure Park and a visit to Chester Zoo. Definitely recommend staying at this very comfortable house and, for the first time, we are considering returning to this property instead of searching for something else. Many thanks to the owner for such a superb holiday home.

Myself and six of my workmates booked this cottage to stay in whilst we walked up snowdon. The cottage was fantastic. Each room is beautifully furnished so no arguments over room allocations. The hot tub is well maintained & helped our aching muscles after our hike up snowdon. The house is situated close to lots of activities. The owners Jane & Geraint are very helpful & welcoming. We had a fantastic fun wkend away which had a lot to do with this fab cottage.

As a group of couples & friends in our late twenties we were looking for an exclusive use house with a hot tub that would sleep us all comfortably. This house was perfect! The kitchen was the feature of the house with the majority of our time spent there (or in the hot tub!) The house is decorated and furnished to a high standard and close to both Bala and Llangollen. It is worth noting that we felt the pictures online didn't do the house justice and we wouldn't hesitate recommending the house to anyone looking for an exclusive use property in North Wales :)

We stayed at the farmhouse in May half term. There were three families with 6 adults and 6 children. The house worked really well it is decorated to a high standard and very clean. The kitchen has a large table which sat all 12 of us and the kitchen was well equiped. The bedrooms and bathrooms were all really nice. The hot tub was great and well maintained. The garden was enclosed which is good for young children. The owners were helpful and were able to provide cot, high chair and stair gates. There was plenty to do in the area and we had a fantastic holiday. I would strongly recommend this holiday property.

A wonderful house, finished to a high standard in a great location. Ideal for Large groups / families - very spacious. Large kitchen / diner. Sitting room a little snug for party of 12, but we found that the children spent most of their time in the playroom or garden so was not a problem. Children loved the hot tub even in April!! Owners Jane & Geraint very helpful. Ideal location for exploring North Wales - in particular Snowdon, Blaenau Ffestiniog for Zip World / Bounce Below, Ruthin, Harlech, Barmouth and Cricceth (for beaches) all accessible within approx 1 hour.
