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 »

Driving: From Dolgellau take the A470 in a southerly direction. At the Cross Foxes Inn take the A487 and follow road up the pass and down the other side. Then take the right hand turn onto the B4405 (signposted Tywyn) and follow this road along the lake side. As you get towards the end of the lake you will see The Old Rectory on the lake welcoming you across the water. Turn right at end of lake and continue along this single track lane for about a quarter of a mile.
At night The Old Rectory is illuminated with blue lights and can be clearly seen from across the lake. On a still evening the reflection is superb!
Our OS Map Reference is SH712097. For sat navs our postcode is LL369AJ – when approaching from the head of the lake ignore any instructions which may be given about continuing through the ford and then gated road.
