  • "What an amazing find."

    This cottage has everything you need and more! All the facilities you need while your away, just like being home from home, couldn’t fault anything! Great views out the back of the property of Trawsfynydd lake and situated just right to explore Snowdonia. Shop & pub nearby too so you won’t be disappointed. We’ll definitely back visiting again soon!

    Eirlys the host is welcoming and cannot be more helpful. The village is quiet which was perfect for us. Extremely close to many walks including the lake the property looks out on. The beds were very comfortable, all amenities required were provided. The welcome hamper was also very much appreciated. Thankyou again we really enjoyed our stay.

  • "This was a great cottage to stay in whilst exploring the area."

    It is a lovely cosy cottage, with everything you could possibly need. The views of the lake and surrounding landscape from the garden and back of the house are truly amazing. Whilst the village itself is really quiet it is a perfect base to get to all of the places to visit and we were glad of the peace and quiet after a day spent in more crowded areas. The local shop is well stocked and the staff really friendly and the parking in front of the property was perfect. We had a great welcome pack when we arrived which was really appreciated and the cottage owner was really lovely, checking in to make sure everything was to our liking. We had a fantastic holiday and look forward to returning at some point to explore further.

  • "We had a wonderful week at Minfford cottage!"

    The cottage was beautiful and cosy and had everything we needed, thank tou to the lovely owners. Wonderful views across to Trawsfynydd Lake even in the rain. You get the feeling of being in the middle of nowhere and yet striking distance to towns and activities. We enjoyed walking around the lake, a visit to Harlech beach and the Castle, walking in Coed y Brenin forest Park and coffee and shopping in Porthmadog. There is a friendly shop in the village and a fish and chip van comes on a Monday evening. We would definitely recommend Minffordd and Trawsfynydd.

Beautiful, spacious double fronted cottage in the pretty Welsh village of Trawsfynydd in the heart of the Eryri (Snowdonia) National Park in North Wales.

This welcoming cottage has wonderful views of the lake to the rear and is just minutes from beautiful lakeside walks and an eight-mile circular walk and cycle path, along with all the boating and fishing opportunities the lake has to offer, and is ideal for a couple, family or friends who want to enjoy the delights this area has to offer.

Featuring three lovely, well-appointed bedrooms and a family shower room with double walk-in shower, a wonderful well-appointed fitted kitchen with dining area and a lovely relaxing sitting room, this delightful cottage has everything to offer and provides a great base from which to explore.

There is a patio with seating at the front, whilst at the rear a beautiful patio area and garden with superb views across fields to Llyn Trawsfynydd, where you can sit and relax in the peace and tranquility of the surrounding countryside.

Beyond the garden is a small paddock area which provides a great place for the children to have a kick about to burn off any excess energy!

The village of Trawsfynydd is well serviced with a small selection of shops, two garages and a lovely traditional pub, all within walking distance of Minffordd.

With fantastic access to Eryri (Snowdonia) and the North Wales coastline only a short drive away you can spend time at one of the beautiful beaches, or visit Portmeirion Italianate Village, or if you fancy something a little more exhilarating then nearby Blaenau Ffestiniog, home to Zip World Titan, Zip Caverns and Bounce Below are well worth a visit.
