The property

A traditional mid-terrace cottage in a great central location in the popular mining town of Blaenau Ffestiniog, in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park.

This delightful cottage is ideal for a small family or group of friends looking for a base from which to explore this lovely part of North Wales.

Full of charm and character with exposed beams, solid oak and natural slate flooring, offering homely accommodation, this pretty cottage has two tastefully-styled bedrooms, a king-size which benefits from a TV and a bunk room, served by a sumptuous bathroom upstairs.

The ground floor houses a stunning open-plan living space, with a well-appointed kitchen, an intimate dining area, and sitting area and patio doors, which lead to a lovely outside decked area, an ideal space for that early morning cup of coffee.

The welcoming lounge boasts two plush sofas and a lovely warming woodburning stove, perfect to relax in front of after an exciting day spent on the mountains, exploring the old quarries, hidden lakes and natural waterfalls.

Outside, the rear decked patio area has furniture, so you can make the most of warm summer evenings and enjoy some alfresco dining or simply relax with a glass of something cold after a day walking on the mountains.

Blaenau Ffestiniog itself has good amenities with a selection of independent shops, pubs, eating establishments and tea rooms all within a five minute walk, and the Fish Restaurant and Takeaway is definitely worth a visit!

There is superb access to Snowdonia from here with an abundance of walks and cycling trails, Antur Stiniog’s downhill mountain bike centre is less than a mile away and the largest mountain bike trail centre in Wales, Coed-y-Brenin, just a twenty minute’s drive.

Blaenau Ffestiniog also hosts Zip World Titan and Zip World Caverns and Bounce Below, all located at Llechwedd Slate Caverns.

The bustling harbour town of Porthmadog is only a short drive away, or for something a little more relaxing take the train there!

The world-famous Ffestiniog narrow gauge steam railway, will take you through some of the most spectacular Snowdonia scenery.

The Italianate village of Portmeirion is definitely worth a visit and there are miles and miles of sandy beaches all within easy reach.

There is so much to see and do in the area and this is a great Blaenau Ffestiniog cottage for enjoying both coast and country, with something to please everyone!
