The surrounding countryside is absolutely breathtaking, with green rolling hills and valleys and only three miles from Bala Lake. Here you may enjoy a taste of all the water sports on offer, kayaking, wind surfing, yachting and fishing. Lazing by the lakeside while watching others exert themselves may be more appealing! For history lovers, there are the remains of a Roman Fort in Bala as well as 11th century Norman earthworks and a 13th century castle crag. There are, of course, a string of impressive castles in mid/north Wales including Caernarfon, Conwy, Chirk, Harlech and Powis to name but a few. Or perhaps you would like to hop on the steam train which puffs its way along a narrow gauge railway taking you on a round trip of nine miles, enjoying views of the spectacular Snowdonia National Park. You can hop on and off at little stations on the way if you wish. Quad biking experiences are available in Corwen which is under half an hour’s drive away if you feel really adventurous. It is an exhilarating ride as you climb up the mountain and wend your way back down. If you fancy going a little further afield one day, a visit to Machynlleth would give you the opportunity to visit the old Welsh Slate Mines, King Arthurs Labyrinth or the Corris Craft Centre. Outdoor pursuits, walking in arguably the prettiest scenery in North Wales, enjoying a miniature train journey or entering the Labyrinth - these are just a flavour of what is on offer in this beautiful part of Wales.
