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 »
“Since coming to live on Tal-y-llyn I have taken part in three Race the Trains – a grueling fourteen mile course from Tywyn to Abergynolwyn and back, running at times alongside the narrow gauge railway track. So far the little steam train has beaten me but this year I aim to change that – hopefully arriving back in Tywyn in just under two hours. It’s a daunting task but I feel with some financial incentive from you – and with many a training session of running round the lake – I might just do it! As we live on the slopes of Cadair Idris I thought it would be appropriate this year to again support the local mountain rescue service – thanks to the generosity of our friends and bed and breakfast guests last year I managed to raise £500 in sponsorship. The team is a charity and is run and staffed entirely by volunteers who are on call 24 hours a day throughout the year and will drop everything to go onto the mountain in all winds and weathers to help walkers in distress. Team members receive no payment for atteding training or call-outs and provide all of their own personal equipment so that’s why I want to help them. If you want to sponsor me – any donantion would be appreciated – please do telephone me here at The Old Rectory on the lake.”
