About Paul Bailey

Hello, I'm Paul Bailey, husband of Sara and dad to Hannah and James. As a former outdoor education teacher I have always loved Wales with all it has to offer in the natural environment and the activities available. We frequently visit here for the canoe racing at Canolfan Tryweryn.

Paul Bailey purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Paul Bailey chose Llanuwchllyn

The opportunity which arose to acquire a lovely traditional stone cottage gave me a project to renovate it to a standard which I'm sure you'll enjoy. The easy access through stunning scenery, quaintness of the cottage ,ideal location and the extra bonus of an excellent pub/restaurant next door makes it a winner. We love the rural atmosphere, warm welcome and breathtaking mountain surroundings.

What makes this cottage unique

We enjoy the sense of history of the cottage itself and being right in the centre of Welsh culture in Llanuwchllyn. A cosy retreat that helps you unwind so peacefully.

lovely cosy cottage

  • 5 of 5

the cottage was lovely, very well equipped. The garden was secure and Harry (dog) enjoyed it very much. Enjoyed the log burner as evenings were chilly.

The pub next door was very handy and served good food.It also doubled up as a shop during the day.

The only downside was that we had to drive to walk the dog as we couldn't find anywhere within walking distance.

Owner's Response: Thank you, I'm pleased your anniversary stay was enjoyable. The Eagles is very popular with our guests for the reasons you've given, it was a major factor in our acquisition of Ty Isa too. Actually there's a fenced path five minutes walk away alongside the river which is great for dog walking off the lead, I'll make it more obvious in the visitor information pack. Come back and try it sometime!

Traditional Welsh cottage set in a beautiful part of Wales.

  • 4 of 5

We spent a short weekend in this lovely cottage, conveniently very close to the local pub. Luckily for us Wales were playing football so we got to hear the national anthem sang by the customers. The food and local beer made a great night.

The cottage is in a good position for visiting the local area and the scenery is dramatic especially off the beaten track.

The cottage feels traditional and warm, it was really comfortable and clean with lovely cost beds. We love this part of Wales and hope to return soon.
