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.

Beautiful cottage in a stunning area

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from a four night break having had an excellent time. The cottage is beautiful, superbly well equipped and with all you could possibly need. The high quality of everything from bedding, towels, kitchen equipment etc to the detailed information provided enhanced our stay and it was lovely to return to the cosy, relaxing cottage after exploring the surrounding area. All in all, a fabulous break. Thank you.

Perfect stay for a trip to Snowdonia

  • 5 of 5

Three of us based our first Snowdonia trip in Paul's cottage for five nights, and we had an incredible time! Paul was very easy to communicate with, which made our arrival to the cottage nice and smooth, despite the heavy rain. The cottage had everything we needed, was clean and immaculate, and wonderfully cosy. Loved having a fireplace, too! Paul has also left a few great walking books, which we used for one of our walks and proved to be a great one! The Eagle next door is fantastic for beer and for food after a long walk. Would definitely love to visit again!

Gorgeous little cottage

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely gorgeous cottage small but with everything we needed in it! In a lovely area we were 10 minutes down the road from Bala and Bala Lake and about 45 minutes away from Snowdon. We will be coming back had a fab mini break and our dog loved it and the fenced in garden was perfect for him. Thank you Paul :)

Clean and cosy cottage with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

We, my other half and infant son and I, had a great time staying at the cottage. It's a really beautiful building that's been lovingly brought up to date - it has all the needed mod cons including a surprisingly large and well equipped kitchen. pleasingly the cottage is also spotlessly clean.

The local pub offered welcome respite after a long drive - friendly staff, decent food and a great pint. Perfect
