Climb Mount Snowdonia while staying at a Bala holiday cottage
Bala cottages are set close to spectacular Snowdonia National Park, near Wales's largest natural lake. Mount Snowdon looks down protectively over the region from 1,036 metres, while the coast provides a paradise for paddlers and boaters. Bala accommodation is blessed with award-winning heritage sites and some of Britain's most famous green spaces.
Engage with Bala's heritage
Visit the award-winning Byd Mary Jones World. This enthralling heritage centre tells the story of a 15-year-old girl who walked 26 miles to buy a book back in 1800. You can retrace her steps through multimedia and interactive exhibits that provide a unique glimpse of history centuries ago. Located on the verge of Lake Bala, the Grade-II listed building draws visitors with its insightful perspective on local history.
Alternatively, try your hand at some arts and crafts at Illuminarte. The fully equipped gallery offers workshops where expert craft teachers coach you in the art of stained glass and mosaic making. Relaxed and informal classes use music to inspire and entertain at this thrilling creative hub.
Trains and trampolines
The Berwyn Mountains, beech hedges, and a rose-covered farmhouse frame idyllic Caerau Uchaf Gardens. The space provides a stunning backdrop for family days out. Bounce around on the trampoline near the café and run through the woods to find the zip wire. Don't leave without making a visit to the fort.
Bala Lake Railway is a local institution. Enjoy superb views of the lake as you and your family ride for nine miles in an authentic steam train called Alice the Little Welsh Engine. You could also check out Surf Snowdonia and ride perfect waves in the 300-metre lagoon, or hire kayaks and windsurfers at Get Wet – The Adventure Company for coastal adventures.
Mountains and lakes
Take a boat out on Wales's largest natural body of water, Llyn Tegid. This glacial lake glitters in the sunshine, making it easy to see why its name means 'Lake of Serenity'. Windsurfing and yachting fans glide gracefully across its tranquil surface. At 42 metres deep, the lake is said to harbour secrets. Some say it is home to a monster known locally as Teggie, while others claim that the spires of a ghostly village are visible through the water. What is certain is that the lake is home to many fish, including the gwyniad, which is found nowhere else in the world.
