The Welsh Language and Culture:

Your hosts, Dorothi and Robin Evans’ first language is Welsh and we can offer learners of the Welsh language encouragement and support by giving them an opportunity to practice their newly acquired skills. Welsh is a beautiful ancient language and we find guests love to have a go at some of the everyday words and unfamiliar sounds, like the double “LL’s” The language is also a very musical language and the Welsh people are famous for their singing. In fact Wales is known as “Gwlad y Gan” or “Land of Song” and there is a famous male voice choir located quite close to us in the village of Llanuwchllyn, at the head of the lake. Their practice night is on Thursdays and visitors are welcome to listen to the lovely music. You will also find concerts to go to and lots of local country shows in the spring and summer months. Here you will see all the country skills being demonstrated or competed at as well as fine livestock and agriculture competitions, handicrafts etc.

Bala is a lively small market town beautifully located within the Snowdonia National Park, at the head of its famous lake, Llyn Tegid (Llyn is Welsh for lake) the largest natural lake in Wales, and offers the visitor a wealth of shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants and a famous historic “Town Walk” (leaflets from Tourist Information Office on lake foreshore). One of the most famous people in history, from Bala area, was Mary Jones who walked barefoot for miles to Bala for a Bible written in Welsh (commemorated by a plaque over the Barclays Bank).
