    “The cute little cottage is well ...”
    The cute little cottage is well appointed, a good location for exploring Snowdonia. It was clean, cosy and comfortable. The woodburner was wonderful when lit as the weather had turned quite cold. The owners gave lots of information about the cottage and the area, which gave us plenty of ideas to use the few days holiday wisely. There are lots of varied tourist attractions within easy reach including walking, museums, castles and lovely beaches. The milk, eggs and cake were a welcome surprise on ...

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.
