Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Located on the shores of Lake Bala and with superb views to the surrounding countryside sit Bryn Tegid, an historical 19th century Grade II listed country house, set within around seven acres of private garden, woodland, paddock and stable. The property has five en-suite bedrooms of which currently three are traded on a bed and breakfast basis, together with an adjoining one bedroom self-catering apartment. There are three lovely reception rooms, all decorated to a high standard reflecting the character and period of the property, many of which have glorious views over the lake itself. The current owners now choose to trade on a very casual basis, however a great deal of potential exist to develop this established business into more of a commercial asset if required, by trading an extra letting bedroom and by offering evening tea's and food and drink if preferred.

The property is just a short walk to Bala's own lake - Llyn Tegid, the largest natural lake in Wales, alongside which runs a charming narrow-gauge railway travelling the length of the lake. The lively and historic market town of Bala (population c. 2,000) is situated only a mile away, so guests can walk or take a short ride to enjoy an evening at one of the friendly local pubs or restaurants or wander the interesting shops and inns scattered around this intriguing historical Town. Its location makes this an ideal place to explore the rest of North Wales being located within the Snowdonia National Park an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with many activities nearby such as golfing, fishing and four-wheel driving. The area also hosts several events per year when there is a high demand for accommodation. This includes two triathlons, cycling event and the International Eisteddfordd, held annually at Llangollen.

Bryn Tegid was built in 1849 for Major General Robert Owen Jones who organised the Ordinance Survey of Wales and was managing director of the "Army & Navy Stores" in London. The property remained as a private residence for many years after it was finally acquired by the current owners in 1999. They embarked upon a significant refurbishment program to restore this lovely characterful building back to its former glory and shortly after they began to trade a number of its bedrooms and established a casual bed and breakfast business and were eventually awarded a Five Star Gold Award by Visit Wales which they have enjoyed for the past six years. However the owners now wish to retire, offering the opportunity of an easily run business with plenty of potential to further develop trade if required.
