This century old Bala accommodation has been a proud home to notable figures in the recent history of Wales, including its first proprietor Syr (Sir) O.M. Edwards - a Welsh academic and statesman who, from humble beginnings, became Wales’ first Inspector for Schools. Syr O M Edwards is widely credited and acknowledged for his efforts to encourage the common folk of Wales to learn and appreciate their own history, language and traditions, in English and in Welsh, and his efforts in this field, together with achieving the abolition of the ‘Welsh Not’ are acknowledged as having gone a long way towards saving the Welsh language at a time when it’s fate hung in the balance.

His son, Syr Ifan ab Owen Edwards became a statesman in his own right, and in 1922 established Urdd Gobaith Cymru, the National League of Youth in Wales, which is now mainly referred to as the Urdd. The Urdd is a Welsh-medium youth movement with over 1,500 branches and over 50,000 members. The Urdd organises activities for its members ranging from small-scale meetings to the Urdd eisteddfod which lasts for a week and is one of Europe’s largest cultural festivals. The Urdd is Wales's largest youth organisation.

Other well-known figures who have lived at this property include Elinor Bennett, an internationally renowned harpist and Mr Ifor Owen, a talented painter and illustrator. The present owner, who also grew up in Llanuwchllyn, has had great fun renovating the Grade II listed property and hope that you will enjoy its great, welcoming atmosphere.

LocationNorth Wales

North Wales showcases some of the UK's most varied landscape, from the snow-capped mountains of Snowdonia to the beaches of the Llyn Peninsula. Indeed, it is one of the only parts of Britain where you can be in the mountains in the morning and at the seaside by the afternoon. The diverse animal life of the region reflects this, with everything from otters to ospreys and seals to dolphins.

Not many places are imbued with such history and heritage, which is reflected throughout the region from cottages to castles! Attractions abound, with zoos and farms, steam railways and activity centres. There are regular events from international cultural festivals and shows to family fun days.

The area also offers a huge range of outdoor activities; walking, cycling, fishing, golf and water-sports to name only a few. In many parts of North Wales the spoken language is Welsh, not English, although people who cannot or will not speak the latter are rare, and signposts and other notices always display their message in both languages.
