About Abercelyn

Located close to Lake Bala in Wales, Abercelyn Cottages are ideal for families, couples, walkers, cyclists and adventure-seekers. Well behaved dogs are welcome in two of three cottages so no one is left behind. Adequate parking space for several cars and boat trailers, secure cycle storage and bike wash facilities are provided. Being in the Snowdonia National Park means there’s a wealth of things to do in the vicinity including mountain walks, water sports and bird watching. If you fancy a different way of getting around, why not then hop on the Bala Lake Railway.
