Welcome to Pen Y Bont Farmhouse

Pen Y Bont Farmhouse provides quality accommodation in a 300 year old Welsh farmhouse bursting with charm and character, situated within the Snowdownia National Park. The farmhouse retains many  original features including a wealth of exposed beams and with real fires in wood burning stoves housed in inglenook fireplaces. The farmhouse is situated in a superb location just a stone's throw from the shores of Lake Bala, yet within just a few minutes walk of Bala town with quaint local shops, supermarket, restaurants, takeaways, swimming pool, cinema and several cosy and friendly pubs.

 Pen Y Bont is ideal for an extended family or group of friends getaway.

Within the grounds are lawns, a fruit patch where you can pick the raspberries, a wooded area with stream, and the site of Castell Gronw, steeped in the mysterious ancient folklore of the tale of Blodeuwedd and Gronw Pebyr, as told in the Mabinogion.
