The farmhouse was lovely. Clean, spacious, and enough amenities/luxuries so that once we stocked up our own food and drink we didn't want to go back out! Wasn't too tricky to find and even though it's set at the back of a working farm it definitely feels secluded. Nice hosts and great location - 10 minutes to get to Bala.
