Warm and cosy cottage in the heart of Snowdonia, sleeping four plus one in three bedrooms, nestled into the mountainside with fantastic views of the Moelwyn mountain range to the front. The perfect base to explore Snowdonia from, or simply to put your feet up by the fire, unwind and relax.
Ideal for time with the family, a trip with friends or a romantic getaway.
We really enjoyed our stay in this lovely house. It is well equipped with everything we needed and is in a great location to explore Snowdonia.
The cottage has a great location on the edge of the historic mining town of Blaenau Ffestiniog, on a peaceful no-through road, with lovely walks from the front door. It is close enough to the town to easily access the local shops and services, but tucked away so that you feel you are in the countryside and can breathe deeply. Surrounded by Snowdonia National Park, Blaenau Ffestiniog is famously known as ‘the town that roofed the world’ due to its historical slate mining industry. Lesser known is that Manod slate quarry housed famous artwork from London’s National Gallery during WWII.
Blaenau is home to the famous Ffestiniog steam railway and is fast becoming a centre for outdoor pursuits, boasting world class mountain biking, ZIP world adventures above and below ground, walking, fishing, climbing and lots more. Photographers will be in heaven with the magnificent landscapes, changing moods and romantic ruins. The town also has a cinema in the quirky & creative ‘Cell B’ venue and cafe, a swimming pool and a great chippy. With so much to do and explore on your doorstep, there is something for everyone in this stunning area of North Wales.
Whether you want to climb Snowdon, stroll along sandy beaches, go kayaking, visit a castle, catch a wave at Surf Snowdonia, cycle round lakes, discover waterfalls, take a ride on a steam train, go caving, or travel up to 100mph on Europe’s longest zip wire…the list is endless!
RETREAT & UNWIND
Take a break from the busy-ness of life to relax and enjoy the beauty of the dramatic landscape around you. Enjoy moments of peace as well as quality time with others. Enjoy the fresh air, sleep well and return home feeling refreshed.
DEFINITION OF COSY
A homely cottage boasting plenty of character, with slate flagged stone flooring, exposed stone work, ingelnook fireplace with wood burning stove, beamed ceilings, and handcrafted features throughout. A pleasure to spend time in, and amazing stars to be seen on a clear night!
We love retreating to North Wales for holidays and feel like we will never run out of things to do or discover in this amazing area. Edward loves being in, on or around water, whether swimming in lakes or surfing on the Llyn Peninsula. Heather enjoys being in the mountains and landscape photography. As a family we enjoy exploring on foot or by bike and our two young boys love the beach, steam trains and playing Pooh sticks.
