    “Stayed in November, cottage was nice, we didn't like the town, very unwelcoming locals but was a good base for us.”


    The front door was difficult to lock and unlock and the dishwasher door was extremely hard to open. I'm surprised that these issues are still ongoing from August. When we arrived the heating was off and it was freezing cold. Would have been nice to have the heating on.low with a 5pm check in, it was dark and cold. The cottage was reasonably clean, the bathroom radiator leaked and there was abit of mould growing in the master bedroom. The radiator in the lounge didn't work. After contacting the owner she suggested to turn some of them off or down low. As we weren't using the 2 smaller bedrooms we turned them off but the lounge radiator was only luke warm. The log burner made up for that, which we enjoyed using in the evening. The master bed was very comfortable. We both slept very well. There was milk in the fridge, welsh cakes and bread on the counter which was a nice touch. The picture is very misleading for the parking. I.have a mondeo and barely got the car in. There is a very narrow driveway with a wall either side, turning my car into the driveway was very tight.

    We are very sorry that our property did not fulfil our exacting standards. We have always found the town friendly and welcoming and the neighbours helpful so we are sorry this wasn't your experience. The town has all amenities as described in the property information. The front door is a little out of line as could be expected in a very old cottage, but can be easily locked and unlocked if lifted slightly. We have had a new door put on the dishwasher so it no longer sticks. Our cleaner/manager will ensure that the heating is on at arrival should the weather be chilly. We have added an electric radiator in the lounge to back up the heating system. The log burner is also laid ready to be lit on arrival. The first logs are complimentary and more logs can easily be purchased from local stores. Although the service road to the cottages is quite narrow, we have never had a problem parking our large family car in front of the cottage. There is plenty of extra parking nearby if needed. We have addressed the problem of the cottage not being as clean as it should be with our cleaner and she has worked with us to ensure our standards are met. The property information clearly states: 'Decked area backs onto steep slopes' 'Care up to the decked area must be taken and children must always be supervised' 'Accessed by 15 concrete and slate steep steps'. All maintenance has been carried out through out the winter closure to ensure everything is up to expectations for the new season.' Thanks, Debbie - Sykes owner relations

The property

A well-appointed double fronted mid terrace cottage, located away from busy passing traffic in the centre of the historic slate mining town of Blaenau Ffestiniog in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park, North Wales.

Providing the perfect base for exploring the wild and rugged landscapes and stunning scenery of North Wales Bridgeway House will suit a couple, friends, or family, keen walkers, cyclists and outdoor enthusiasts alike.

This lovely 19th century slate workers cottage sits below the imposing steep slopes of Garreg Ddu (meaning Black Rock), the rocky outcrop which defines the northern boundary of Blaenau Ffestiniog and offers a modern and fresh interior, tastefully furnished and decorated throughout whilst still retaining character and charm.

Having undergone a comprehensive scheme of refurbishment in 2018, the cottage is well-presented and maintained, decorated in neutral colours and soft warming greys.

The sitting room has comfy seating and the wood burning stove provides a great place for everyone to sit, chat and relax after a busy day walking and exploring and the cosy dining area is great for a romantic meal or family breakfast together.

The well-equipped kitchen has everything you will need to cater for everyone.

Upstairs are three individually styled bedrooms, a double and two singles and a family bathroom which completes the cosy cottage.

At the front of the cottage there is parking for one car, bike storage and a gravelled seating area and elevated at the rear, is a decked seating area where you can sit and enjoy a glass of something, taking in the rugged mountainous views over the rooftops on a Summers evening after a day of exploring.

Local shops, restaurants, pubs and even a cinema, as well as some fantastic walks are on your doorstep with great access to Snowdonia which offers more wonderful walking opportunities and mountain bike tracks to explore.

Blaenau Ffestiniog is home to a host of adrenaline-fuelled activities at Llechwedd Slate Caverns, Zip World Titan (the largest zip zone in Europe), Zip World Caverns and Bounce Below (deep mine zip wires and the largest underground system of trampolines in the world!) and there are some fantastic mountain bike tracks and trails all within easy reach.

For something a little less energetic, the well-known Ffestiniog narrow gauge steam railway is also on your doorstep and will be loved by all.

A converted chapel in the centre of the town is home to 'The Little Dragons' soft play fun centre for children 1-12 years and is a great place for some family fun if you find the weather is against you or visit the local 50 seat cinema for an afternoon Matinée.

A little further afield, why not visit the Italian village and gardens of Portmeirion, together with historic castles and sandy beaches all within a 20 minute drive away.

This charming cottage is ideally placed and provides a great base for a holiday or short break anytime of the year.
