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 »
Scores on the Doors is the national food hygiene rating scheme where you can find out the official local authority hygiene ratings for a food business – this scheme is now the largest in the world! The scores go upwards from zero to five and The Old Rectory on the lake has just been awarded a pleasing four by Gwynedd Council in their latest inspection.
“This means that we have a high standard of compliance with food safety legislation together with a robust food safety management,” said chef and joint owner, Ricky Francis. “It is always interesting to check out the hygiene of a restaurant’s kitchen and how safely the food you are about to tuck into was prepared before it reaches your plate so we are more than satisfied that we scored so highly.”
