You can book directly with us and still pay by credit card or through a bank transfer and potentially save yourself a lot of money!

Please carry on and we really hope that you do choose to book with us, I can promise you that we have a lot to offer you.

Situated six miles N.E. of Bala, the world-renowned water sports centre on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park; this is unquestionably one of the most beautiful regions of Wales. With easy access to Snowdon, Betws-y-Coed, Harlech, Llangollen, Chester and Anglesey, ideally located to take advantage of the many activities and sights that the spectacular Snowdonia National Park has to offer.

There are many market towns, historic castles and beautiful gardens within a short distance and for the more adventurous, I can definitely recommend the pony trekking in Betws-y-Coed, mountain biking in Llandegla or the white-water rafting and canoeing in Bala; it just depends on how energetic you are feeling! If you just fancy a bit of walking there are some fantastic walks right from the doorstep.

There are plenty of places to eat out in Bala and the local pub/restaurant, The Goat, is only a 10 minute drive away. We always recommend Abul's Spice in Corwen or the Bryntirion Inn in Llandderfel (both around a 15 minute drive), and there are also some great places in Llangollen. For a very special night, you might want to try Tyddyn Llan, a Michelin Star restaurant in Llandrillo.

Tudor Cottage is completely separate from The Granary and completely isolated from neighbours (half a mile away) and road noise. It has its own private garden and parking right outside the front door.

• The cottages are right up to date with perfect mobile phone reception for all networks, broadband and Sky TV with a full package of sports and movies for when you just want to relax.

• Particularly suitable for those who suffer from allergies and asthma; all the bedding including pillows and duvets are hypoallergenic and all the floors are either wood or tiled. We also operate a no smoking/no pet policy in order to accommodate guests with these conditions.

• Towels, bed linen and tea towels provided.

• BBQ and garden furniture, outdoor table tennis table.

• Laundry room in a separate barn with washer and dryer.

• Picnic benches in idyllic places with great views.

• Set in 18 acres with several beautiful picnic areas and a small lake (well fenced off) for canoeing, swimming and fishing.

Top Traveller Review

About the Owner

Lawrence (husband) and I are in our early 50s and we bought Hafod Tudur in 1989 after living in Chester so we have owned to cottages for the last 26 years! We travel the world as part of Lawrence's job and have used all the things that we like (and don't!) about booking accommodation to shape how we approach sharing The Granary and Tudor Cottage.

If we want to book somewhere we want to know straight away if it's available and what the cost will be, so we always endeavour to keep our calendars up to date and to answer emails within an hour or two.

We always try to be as flexible as we can with dates and can usually accommodate most requests. We also hope we have created 'a home from home' in the cottages and have hopefully made things how most people would want them.

Stunning cottage with everything you need for the perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

We arrived Friday evening for a long weekend, which was the perfect amount of time to relax and unwind along with seeing and getting everything done. The cottage was very cosy and felt like a home away from home. The hot tub on the hill was stunning with a great view and the barn was perfect for a few games of pool/darts or to relax in the sauna. We thouroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely love to go again.

A cosy Novembwr bolt hole in a beautiful spot.

  • 5 of 5

The owner could not have been more welcoming and friendly. The house was well set up for us, a family of 4. Everything worked and was in good order. It was cosy and warm with plenty of hot water. It's a beautiful spot, which you can marvel at from the hot tub! It's a short drive from any of the snowdonia attractions you could want to visit. We had a lovely few days and wouldn't hesitate to book again.

Beautiful cottage

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic relaxing weekend in Tudor cottage, beautiful scenery the cottage has everything you could possibly need, brilliant wi fi signal the hot tub is fabulous and the views to die for it has to be the most relaxing place I have been to, but if you want to be more energetic than we were there is enough for you to do cycling, walking canoeing on the lake, Linda is very friendly and helpful from the minute I enquired about the cottage, we will definitely be going again

Bliss a piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

This property and it's surroundings are everything you could wish for and more for a holiday. Everything is perfect. Its a haven away from the hustle and bustle, you don't even have to venture out, there's so much to see and do.

Our thanks go to the owners for the warm welcome, & their two dogs were so very friendly.

We really wished we could have stayed there longer, we will definitely return.

A wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

Tudor cottage was so much more than we expected. Waking up each morning taking our daughter to collect eggs and see the chickens was a wonderful experience as was the chickens and cows roaming around. It was a vey relaxing holiday with our favorite room being the conservatory to relax and unwind. It is situted in a good location to travel out to Barmouth and Llandudno which we enjoyed. The lake was excellent as well much more than we expected and the kids really enjoyed it. I think our favorite time spent together was in the hot tub as darkness came in and to see so many stars was amazing. Many thanks to Linda & Lawrence. From Alex, Sonya & family.

Location

From the Owner

We fell in love with Hafod Tudur as soon as we saw it, it is off the beaten track but still accessible for the main roads, shops and amenities and the views are amazing!! Where we are located is the best thing - most people just travel through here on the way to the North or West coasts so we are often overlooked here but the benefits of that are that you are only ever 1 hour away from Barmouth or Harlech on the West Coast or Anglesey or Llandudno to the North. If you want to explore Chester in England or most parts of Mid Wales then they are only an hour away and even a highly recommended day out in Liverpool can be yours in an hour and a half. One nice thing for us personally is that we can walk out of the cottage door and not meet a single person or cross a single road for miles!

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Liverpool at 62 Miles Nearest Barpub : The Goat Pub at 2 Miles Nearest Ferry : Holyhead to Ireland at 62 Miles Nearest Golf : Bala at 7.5 Miles Nearest Train : Ruabon at 21 Miles Nearest Motorway : A494 to Bala at 1.5 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Bala at 6 Miles Nearest Ski : Llandudno dry ski slope at 39 Miles Nearest Beach : Porthmadog/Portmeirion at 39 Miles Car: necessary

The beauty of this location is that you are never too far from anywhere in North Wales; travel West for one hour and you will find Barmouth, Porthmadog, Portmeirion and Harlech on the West cost - travel North for one hour and you will find Llandudno and Conwy castle on the North Coast. If you want to do some shopping and see the historical town of Chester, then that is only a one hour drive to the East.

Additional pricing information

Fees No additional mandatory fees

Booking Notes:

If you do want to go ahead and book the costs shown do include all heating, electricity, towels and linen, sauna and hot tub use, Wi-Fi and Sky TV, there would be nothing else to pay. The only things we ask for a contribution towards are the washing machine and tumble drier if you use them and any ‘pay to view’ programmes on Sky. All we would need now is a deposit of £100 with the balance 6 weeks prior to arrival; I would show the cottage as booked as soon as you let me know and would email confirmation as soon as we receive your payment - we can accept card payments and there is no charge for that but our preferred method of payment is by bank transfer - we would send you the details.

I do hope all this suits you, if you have any further questions at all or any special requests please don't hesitate to get in touch at any time. I really can guarantee you would not be disappointed with either the cottage or the area, both are quite special.

Our check in times are 2pm and we would ask that you check out by 10am but we can be flexible on this if there is nobody in before or after you.
Best regards
Linda

Facilities

From the Owner

You can do whatever you like here - if you want to relax and 'escape' from the world then you can; if you want a romantic escape with the partner of your dreams - it's yours. If you want to get out there with horse riding, white water rafting, mountain biking or fishing - you can. If you want to take your family to the beach or to visit one of the may castles, National Trust properties or gardens around here, do it. If you don't want to go anywhere (and lots of people don't when they get here) then we have: the lake with canoes, diving platform and slide and fishing - the hot tub and sauna, games room with pool table darts and table tennis - the field with badminton and disc golf course (4 holes) - all here for you to enjoy and these are all only shared with Tudor Cottage or The Granar
