The property

Manod 0.25 miles.

A delightful, 18th century, stone-built terraced cottage, situated on the outskirts of Manod, near the centre of Snowdonia National Park.

Surrounded by dramatic scenery, this charming open plan property boasts glorious mountain views from most aspects and has been sympathetically renovated to retain much original character, including exposed beams, original slate flagstone flooring in the kitchen and a large, inglenook fireplace with multi-fuel stove in the sitting area.

The surrounding area offers beautiful countryside and stunning views, with the Manod Mawr and Bach mountains and the hidden Manod Lake directly opposite the property.

Nearby Llechwedd offers a new downhill mountain bike track, the largest zip wire zone in Europe and the exciting ‘Bounce Below’ underground trampolines.

Enjoy the nearby bustling town of Porthmadog with its marina, or the enormous beach at Black Rock Sands, whilst Bodnant Gardens and Mount Snowdon itself are both within easy reach.

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.
