A lush lakeside retreat. Enthusiastic owners spoil guests rotten - comfy beds,sumptuous baths, exceptional meals, a hot tub under the stars.
Hike to Cadair Idris – the scenery is breathtaking. Return to a hot tub under the stars, and champagne to toast your good fortune. This lakeside B&B in southern Snowdonia is utterly spoiling and Ricky has become a chef of reputation. Slow-roast lamb shank, fillet of local salmon, a trio of Welsh ices; the menus change each day. Spacious bedrooms (one is downstairs) have ever-changing views, bathrooms are sumptuous and you wake to the smell of Welsh bacon: breakfasts are to die for. Binoculars for the birds, a wonderful welcome for you, candlelit dining... it's bliss. Read the full write up here »
The Old Rectory on the lake nestles on the side of Cadair Idris in southern Snowdonia and enjoys spectacular views across Tal-y-Llyn to the steep sided mountain opposite. Situated mid way between Machynlleth, Dolgellau and the coastal village of Aberdyfi The Old Rectory on the lake offers homely accommodation and is the ideal place to get away from it all and unwind. It also is a great base from which to explore the Snowdonia National Park.
We have two upstairs double bedrooms with views across the lake – both are en suite with Victorian free standing baths. Downstairs – looking up the lake – we have a cosy double bedroom with shower and toilet en suite.
Next door is The Rectory Retreat – a self contained studio apartment with double bed and single with kitchen area and wet room which also can be let out on a bed and breakfast basis.
All rooms have satellite television and radio, plus free Broadband wireless connection throughout the property. We can offer evening meals to residents (except Wednesday’s) and we are licensed.
