A lakeside property with exciting opportunities in Snowdonia National Park and in the lee of Cadair Idris.
The Pen-y-Bont Hotel is an historical 16th Century Coaching Inn providing accommodation and a place of sustenance over the centuries. Many years ago there was also a Blacksmith's forge (now the sitting room and bar) and the long barn housed the coaches and stabling for the horses. The present owners arrived in 2006 to a semi-derelict main building and set about re-roofing much of the main roof, rewiring, dry lining walls, replacing windows, updating heating systems, installing a fire alarm system and much more to re-open the business. Today, Pen-y Bont Hotel caters for its residents and is run very much to suit the present owners. However its scope and potential is exciting with great opportunities. The lakeside rooms have many possible uses such as utilising its excellent Commercial Kitchen and making it more available to the public or alternatively converting into self catering accommodation or further letting rooms.The enclosed verandah along the front of the house provides two entrances into the property, one being the main reception hall with a further entrance hall to the bar. The main dining room, once two rooms, caters for up to 50 covers and has fireplaces at either end. The slate floor continues into the sitting room/bar with its inglenook fireplace and cloakrooms beyond. At the other end of the restaurant are the suberbly equipped commercial kitchens. On the first floor there are eight bedrooms. Five have en suite shower rooms and two have scope for en suite facilities if needed. The family room has its own bathroom and a separate parking area and an entrance via a ramp to the rear of the building.An enclosed corridor from the kitchen forms the back of the courtyard garden and links the main house to the Lakeside Annexe. Along the corridor are various store rooms accommodating a walk-in fridge, chest freezers and utility rooms. A small courtyard at the back of this includes a cabin workshop. The long barn known as the Lakeside Bar can accommodate up to 60 covers with additional seating for 24 covers in the games room and has cloakrooms beyond.At the front entrance of the main building, there is space for outside seating.The pretty courtyard garden between the two buildings is ideal for entertaining, up to 16 covers and more outside dining space is available in the garden beside the lake, up to 60 covers. The view from here is stunning, one of the iconic views of Wales and is frequently used in national advertising.The large car park alongside the lake also provides an income from motor homes, walkers and swimmers who come to enjoy the wonderful surroundings and facilities.
