Dolafon Bed and Breakfast, Snowdonia, Gwynedd
Bala is an interesting market town with its Norman motte still apparent. It was founded by Roger de Mortimer in the 14th. century and it prospered in the 1700’s and early 1800’s with the “manufacture” of stockings and gloves.
These were made by hand as a cottage industry. Farming and tourism are now the mainstay of this centre of Welsh Language and Culture. Y Bala translates as the “outflow of the lake”.
A warm welcome is assured at our semi detached residence in a private cul-de-sac in Frongoch village, in beautiful country side and the view of the Arenig mountain. Refreshment served on arrival.
A choice of breakfast is served in our pleasant lounge/dining room which opens onto the rear garden and patio area.
Dolafon is also a resting place for more peaceful activities. The reservoir , Llyn Celyn, is 2 miles away and a peaceful walk may be made across the dam and around the trails in ordinary attire and footwear under normal weather conditions. Similarly, Bala Lake itself, the largest natural lake in Wales, is pleasant to visit.
Ideally located for touring Snowdonia, North and Mid Wales. We are 3 miles from Bala Lake, half a mile from the National White Water Centre.
