About the location
Blaenau Ffestiniog 1.5 miles; Porthmadog 10 miles; Betws-y-Coed 13 miles.
Manod is situated between the impressive Manod and Moelwyn mountains near the centre of Snowdonia National Park. Only 1.5 miles away is Blaenau Ffestiniog, once the capital of slate quarrying and in the 18th Century known as the "City of Slate". The town stands in an elevated, natural bowl amidst this mountainous region, has a good variety of shops and pubs, but is best known for its tourist attractions. One of the old quarries is now the renowned Llechwedd Slate Cavern, or there is the magnificent hydroelectric power station and famous narrow gauge Ffestiniog Railway providing wonderful trips through spectacular countryside. Enjoy superb walks and bike trails, good climbing at the Plas y Brenin National Mountain Centre, wonderful sandy beaches, great fishing or golf, or visit delightful Betws-y-Coed, the Italianate Village at Portmeirion, or Bala, with its renowned white-water rafting opportunities.
