This superb double fronted, semi-detached cottage is situated on the outskirts of the popular and historic slate mining town of Blaenau Ffestiniog, situated in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park, it provides a wonderful base for exploring the area for couples, friends or a family.
The Old Post Office has been lovingly refurbished and renovated to a high standard and is well maintained with exceptional presentation, and great attention to detail from the owners.
This wonderful cottage has a modern and fresh interior with stylish soft furnishings, tastefully decorated in neutral tones, with complimenting fabrics to add a touch of luxury.
A bay windowed sitting room boasts comfy sofas and a lovely fireplace housing a wood burning stove, perfect for those chilly evenings in front of the TV watching a favourite film from the selection of DVD's provided.
The beautiful kitchen has a wonderful peninsula island, granite worktops, double Belfast sink and a Kenwood gas cooking range; a great addition to an already well-equipped kitchen which will please the chef in your group.
The bay fronted dining area provides comfortable dining for all the family and fabulous views.
Three stylish bedrooms are upstairs, each offering something different.
The master bedroom has fantastic views towards the Moelwyn mountain range and benefits a king-size bed and en-suite shower room.
The double bedroom has garden access out onto the decked area, which enjoys a craggy backdrop and is a great place to enjoy an early morning cuppa.
Last but not least is a spacious twin-bedded room enjoying the same mountainous views.
A family bathroom completes this lovely holiday home.
Outside there is an area for bike storage, with a secure lock to keep bikes safe but it’s the terraced garden and elevated decked seating area which makes this property rather special.
Here you can enjoy alfresco dining with some amazing views encompassing the Vale of Ffestiniog, the Moelwyn mountain range and Stwlan Dam.
The decked areas twinkle at night with an array of solar powered lighting making it a lovely place for a night cap, in the warmer weather.
Walks are in abundance from the cottage, which is also ideally placed for numerous cycling paths and 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 drive.
The town centre is a fifteen minute walk from the cottage, offering a variety of shops, tea rooms, pubs, eateries and even a 50 seat cinema.
The famous Ffestiniog-Porthmadog Steam Railway starts its journey from the town centre, and for the more adventurous of you there is ZipWorld Titan (the largest zip zone in Europe), Zip Caverns and Bounce Below (deep mine zip wires and the largest underground system of trampolines in the world!).
The coastal towns of Harlech and Criccieth, with their medieval castles, wonderful sandy beaches and hidden coves, and the Italianate village and gardens of Portmeirion are all reached in just 30 minutes, as is Porthmadog and Betws-Y-Coed.
With Snowdonia on the doorstep, and Anglesey and the Llyn Peninsula easily reached, this is a perfect family cottage for all to enjoy, whatever the time of year.
Note: This property has a refundable Good Housekeeping bond of £100.
