About Jane Jones
We are a family from Birmingham. We bought Hysbysfa in 2008 as we loved the surrounding countryside and wanted a breath of fresh air every few weeks. Our 2 young daughters have loved staying there as they have far more freedom to have adventures than they do in the big City! We hope you enjoy it as much as they do.
Jane Jones purchased this Cottage in 2008
Beautiful cottage, stunning location!
The cottage was everything we had hoped for, beautiful inside and out and had everything we needed for a perfect family break!
There’s so much to do in the local area, amazing walks straight from the door and even more just a short drive away. The cottage was warm and cosy and fitted our family of six perfectly. During our stay we visited two of the zip world locations, dolgoch falls, the talylynn railway, Aberdovey beach and mount Snowdon! The kids (and their parents!) loved every minute of our stay! Thank you Jane for giving us the opportunity to enjoy a perfect family break!
Exactly as advertised
Wonderful setting. What we wanted. Ideally situated for the activities planned will definitely recommend and return
Had the most fantastic week
Jane’s cottage is beautiful. There is everything you need for a family holiday. The cottage is secluded, but, within walking distance of Bala Lake. Lots of walks from the cottage. Betwys Y Coed, Swallow Falls, Llandudno and Barmouth worth a visit. Lots of places we didn’t visit, but, we are hoping to return next year
Beautiful cottage in a wonderfully secluded location,fully equiped with all that you could need.
Prior to arrival the local information and pointers I received from the owner and the subsequent correspondence were above and beyond what I could have hoped for,so helpful and insightful. The booking process was a piece of cake,the property itself if anything sold itself short in its description and imagery,was a perfect (not so) little bolt hole to explore the snowdonia national park. Made for an ideal base camp for a weeks cycling adventure and I'm looking at the calender to plan in returning with the family for a long weekend break as the cottage has all amenities you could ask for aswell as being perfectly private and scenic in its location.20 out of 10!!
Walking the Hills
We were a group of four guys having our annual break away from home! The cottage was everything we hoped for. We couldn't fault any aspect of our stay even the weather was glorious. I would recommend this cottage to anybody who wants peace and quiet in an idyllic setting.
A more perfect holiday spot I think would be difficult to find!! A gem of a cottage, enjoyed every second there, waking up to the sheep bleating, the view over the fields , perfect!!
Bala is within easy reach of beautiful North Wales coastline. Within 40 minutes of the seaside town of Barmouth with its lovely sandy beaches. The estuarine resort of Aberdovey is a similar distance away and is beautiful. Slightly further afield but still easily a day trip is Portmaddoch , Harlech , Shell Island, Abersoch and the Llyn Peninsula and more... Stunning combinations of shoreline and mountains.

Within walking distance too of the magnificent Bala lake , with access to windsurfing , canoeing , sailing or just paddling if the water is warm enough!

It is situated within the Snowdonia National Park and as such is a perfect location for walking enthusiasts with many beautiful walks on the doorstep, including Cadyr Idris, if you enjoy mountain walks and Snowdon easily accessible as a day trip.

Bikes can be hired in Bala and there are 2 excellent off road cycling facilties at Coed Y Brenin and Llandeglar Forest a short car journey away.For stunning coastal scenery and a lovely family cycle ride , the Mawddach trail just outside Dollgellau is a must . This flat cycle track runs for approximately 10 miles to Barmouth, along the Mawddach estuary. It is lovely.
For shoppers , the historic town of Chester is approximately 50 minutes away , with its famous walls, great shopping , zoo and Cheshire Oakes Designer Outlet park.
Booking Notes: Please note , the cost of a short break can be calculated by working out 40% of the weekly rate for night 1 , and then a further 10% of the weekly rate for every additional night. I'm sorry for any confusion that the website causes by providing a daily rate for you. This is simply dividing the weekly rate by 7. Minimum stay , 3 nights subject to season. Sorry , no stag or hen parties. Changeover Day: Preferred changeover day Saturday , but this is negotiable on request.
