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.

The Old Rectory on the lake is now in its ninth year of offering luxurious accommodation and fine dining.
