about the property

Bala Welsh holiday cottage for the family above Llyn Tegid with remarkable views, and privacy. Stylish interiors and fabulous views…everything you’d want in a Snowdonia holiday cottage in Wales!

A traditional Welsh mountain cottage perched high on the flanks of the Aran mountain above Llyn Tegid (Lake Bala) in the Snowdonia National Park. Newly renovated, this stylish bolt-hole offers seclusion, fine views and a contemporary interior. The 'Listed' historic building (built 1725) has been carefully restored, juxtaposing traditional conservation materials (lime plasters and whitewashing etc) with contemporary cool. Stay here if you enjoy fine open views and that wonderful sense of privacy that you get from being at the end of your own private track. A fine escape for mountaineers, watersports enthusiasts and budding authors alike. Click here to see more photos of Rhyd-Fudr, or here for aerial photograph.

customer reviews for Rhyd-Fudr

A delightful cottage! Many thanks to UTT and Ursula and Bob (the housekeepers) as nothing was too much trouble. The photos do not do justice to the lovely rustic interior. The facilities leave you wanting for nothing. Hope to be back in 2018!

The cottage was amazing and provided all the facilities we needed for a family break, it was finished to a high quality, especially the bathroom which was stunning. While providing peace and tranquillity it was also central to most activities in North Wales so a perfect base. The kids loved the drive up and down the path in the Jeep, it added magic to the overall trip.

What a wonderful place. The cottage is perfect if you just want to get away from everything and completely relax. Using the jeep to get up the hill is great fun and the position at the top of the hill is perfect - surrounded with breathtaking views and lovely walks. We had fabulous weather and soaked up the sun on the pretty terrace behind the cottage. We also had more autumnal weather and got to enjoy the cosiness of the place with the fire blazing while the wind howled outside. It really is a great place whatever the weather.

The housekeeper Ursula stayed on to meet us and gave us a very warm welcome and lots of tips about where we could and couldn't walk the dog. The house itself is lovely, the TV rather small but we came well stocked with DVDs as we knew there would be no TV or wifi!! The bathroom is absolutely gorgeous, bedrooms a bit lacking in furniture (mirrors, wardrobes, hooks etc. to hang/store clothes) and the lounge very is very comfortable....when the weather was good enough it was really lovely to sit in the garden and stare at the fantastic view.

What a lovely holiday we had in Wales and at Rhyd-Fudr! At First we weren't too sure of being away from the Internet and TV for a week, but only when at Rhyd-Fudr we realised it was exactly what we needed. The setting is stunning with the mountainous views covered with sheep green everywhere you look and the cottage has everything you may need to make your stay perfect! Thanks so much for everything and we will definitely look forward to being back!

The cottage is lovely. It's ideally located to explore this beautiful part of Wales and the wide range of activities on offer; from walking up Cader Idris to a quaint cup of tea at Llanuwchllyn Railway Station!

Great cottage in a secluded location. Like the minimalistic yet still traditional interior. This cottage has the best bath in the world, heaven! The jeep up the lane was good fun too! Thanks under the thatch!

Great little cottage and idillic surroundings with some great views and just what was required to get away from it all

We had a fantastic time at Rhyd-Fudr, what a stunning place, which ticked all our boxes - fresh air, wood fire, open fields and frolicking lambs! Laka Bala was stunning too and there was plenty to do, the time just flew. The house was great, all mod cons and comfortable, and the housekeeper was really friendly. Once more Under the Thatch does the business, thank you!

A lovely weekend in a fantastic cottage. Quiet and cosy, with no light pollution or traffic noise. Everything you need for a relaxing break. Great walking from out of the front door.

'The first to experience the delights of Rhyd Fudr and there are many. Cosy, quiet, peaceful evenings by the woodburner, long hot soaks in the bath, bracing walks, comfy beds, amazing views, the lambs in the fields etc etc. Hope to be back soon. ~ Nicola Pritchard
