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 »
Laurens was here a second time and for us, Freddy and Bea, it was a first time. We enjoyed our stay at The Old Rectory on the lake very much. We had two delicious meals cooked by Ricky who did a fantastic job. The meals were cooked to order and you could taste the difference compared with the meals you get in other restaurants. The vegetables were freshly cooked al dente – very modern. We were also lucky with the weather on the day we walked up the Cader Idris and when we managed to get to the top we had fantastic views and enjoyed the salmon sandwiches which Ricky had packed for us. After returning from the Idris we had a bath in the Victorian bath tub in the Graig Goch suite. John is a fantastic host and spoils his guests with all sorts of stories relating to the place, Cader Idris and Wales. We hope to come back one day. In attachment you can find three pictures taken during our stay.
All the best with your excellent B&B.
Freddy, Bea and Laurens
