This year Chef Ricky will be offering evening meals at £35 a head on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sundays and sometimes Mondays too! Wherever possible he uses local produce and we are licensed. Maybe look at what Trip Advisor reviewers write so enthusiastically about his cooking!

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.

The Old Rectory on the lake at Tal-y-llyn is now in its fourteenth year of providing luxury bed and breakfast accommodation and fine dining to the discerning visitor to this delightful part of southern Snowdonia. With just four letting rooms our home has received many an award and has been featured in the national press. Mercifully our Trip Advisor reviews are good and we are just about to hit an incredible milestone – our one thousandth review!

For this latest video we are indebted to local professional harpist, Rhianwen Pugh, for providing just the right musical accompaniment to the stunning images of the lake we have managed to capture during the last year. We also thank all who agreed to take part in its making.
