Tyddyn Llan

Top choice boutique hotel in Bala (Y Bala)

An elegant property set amid gardens in the tranquil Vale of Edeyrnion, Tyddyn Llan is a cosy bolthole for a rural retreat. The 12 rooms and suite each boast their own individual style: some frou-frou romantic, some shabby-chic modern. The main draw, however, is the Michelin-starred restaurant (menus £70 to £95), with a creative menu and superb produce (including live shellfish).

Tyddyn Llan is in Llandrillo, 8 miles east of Bala.
