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 »
Our telephone has been red hot with many guests ringing to see if we had seen Talyllyn on the small screen – we had many calls from local folk and from Bristol, Stafford, Liverpool, Oswestry and even one from the south of France! On Tuesday March 13 BBC 2 transmitted an hour long programme called ‘Rugged Wales’ where wildlife presenter, Iolo Williams, visited some amazing parts of Wales. He said that if he was asked to chose the best natural lake in Wales Talyllyn would be the top of his list adding that it was a fantastic location and one of the best fishing lakes. The BBC cameras captured wildlife both above and below the waters here. They filmed a pair of goosanders, diving ducks, whose love of salmon has often brought it into conflict with fishermen! Head Talyllyn Ghillie, Phil Wood, was interviewed and Iolo used an underwater camera to film some rather large bread eating trout.
The section featuring Talyllyn runs from about 13.30 to 15.30 and can be viewed on BBC I player until March 20th at http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b01dn7s0/Rugged_Wales_Episode_1/.
