The drive to get here is fantastic and the approach truly beautiful - The Old Rectory waits for you on the other side of the lake. The owners are full of enthusiasm for their fabulous B&B and spoil guests rotten - comfy beds with smooth Egyptian cotton sheets, binoculars for bird spotting and luxurious baths. Fabulous photos of mountains and lake decorate the dining room, there are views from every window to the luminous lake, and you can climb Cadair Idris from the front door. Return, weak-limbed, to a delicious, home-cooked meal and a bit of cossetting... maybe a wallow in the hot tub under the stars. Read the full write up here »
Why not pamper yourself during your stay?
Our outdoor hot tub overlooking the lake is proving to be very popular – whatever the weather or time of day! So far two guys have proposed to their girlfriends under the stars with a glass of champagne in one hand and an engagement ring in the other! They had also booked fireworks which we then set off from down by the lake – the reflections were superb. We have teamed up with Dynamic Fireworks of Colchester, Essex, who have an amazing range of pyrotechnics at very good prices. Do look at their range at www.dynamicfireworks.co.uk - many of their products have video clips. We especially recommend their Reign of Fire (see video HERE), which is a grandiose display of colors accompanied by a majestic rumble, or Optimum (see video HERE), which presents sophisticated sequences of different effects over nearly two minutes. Both are amazing action packed displays which really light up the Tal-y-Llyn sky and the shots just echo off the mountain opposite. All the prices are on Dynamic’s website but do add £20 for postage – either you can book them and get them delivered to us or we can do it for you.
Why not have one of our pamper/celebration packages – for £45 we can provide, chocolates in your room, a bottle of champagne and use of our hot tub or sauna.
For that special occasion and for an extra £25 we can have fresh flowers waiting in your room.
