Take the exceptional beauty of Bala Lake, the majesty of the scenery and the wealth of local activities to be enjoyed here, then add the Bala touch of excellence. This has always been a very special corner of Wales. Bala, about a mile away, is a friendly, welcoming town with every facility including a busy Monday market. Bala Lake, the Principality’s largest, is a haven for water sports and fishing, the steady mountain breeze making it perfect for sailing and windsurfing. There are lakes, mountain walks, and castles to visit, wonderful cycling, and fascinating museums; and then the quiet peace and tranquillity of Pen-y-Garth’s own 20 acres of heaven.
