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 »
We were flattered that a professional landscape photographer used The Old Rectory on the lake as a base for a two day autumn shoot. Tim Smith from Benfleet, Essex, and his wife Elaine stayed with us last week and we are indebted to him for now sending us these amazing images taken round here to post on our website. Tim wrote us this accompanying email.
“The Old Rectory on the Lake is a true delight; peaceful location, wonderful accommodation and superb food. John & Ricky should be congratulated on running such a fantastic establishment. As a landscape photographer Snowdonia offers so much. Although Tal-y-Llyn lies close to the southern edge of The National Park it is within easy reach of so many amazing photographic opportunities. I am gradually extending the range of my images of Great Britain many of which can be viewed on my web site http://timothysmithphotography.co.uk. We hope to return to Tal-y-Llyn. Highly recommended!”
