  • "Great property, location was great with area to explore behind the property."

    The kids were climbing the rocks and into the wood. Shame that there was so much broken glass and sharps all over the ground but the viewpoint was amazing. The weather probably helped but it was amazing area. Central for all areas of Snowdonia that we were visiting. House was well equipped and perfect for us. The hot water for showers was a bit of a mystery and meant we could only get hot water one at a time, or perhaps we never worked it out properly. We were also a bit confused by which bins were to be used for what and when they should be collected. I am colour blind which probably didn’t help and knowing which set of the bins or if both could be used was confusing. They were still fairly full from the previously. It would be good to have more spare keys available although I appreciate that there was a key safe that could be used. It would also be useful to have a washing line of any sort that could be used in the back garden. We would definitely go back again, hopefully the prices remain competitive.

  • "This is a fantastic cottage in the centre of Blaenau Ffestiniog."

    It is clean, really well equipped and a stone's throw from lots of beautiful walks. We had an amazing stay in February/March 2022 and cannot recommend this cottage highly enough.

  • "We had a wonderful week's stay at this beautifully furnished double cottage."

    This had everything we needed and more which made our stay as a group of 9 very comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped with plenty of crockery, glasses, cutlery, cleaning products, pots and pans the list goes on. The living area was large with comfy sofas which recline, lots of space for the kids to play in and the TV was huge which we all appreciated. The bathrooms were very clean and a good size, the only issue we had was shower going cold when someone would open a tap so there was no chance of having both showers in use at the same time. I guess this is a minor point and very common. The bedrooms were perfect and the master bedroom was also very big but much cooler than the rest of the cottage, perhaps we didn't know about a separate heating system in the roo. But again not a problem as we visited at the end of August which was still warm for us. The cottage is well located with shops and takeaways nearby. Beautiful scenery with mountains, lakes and waterfalls nearby! We all had a very enjoyable stay here and would highly recommend this to anyone. Thank you owners of Tryfan cottage!

The property

Resting in the picturesque slate-mining town of Blaenau Ffestiniog, Gwynedd lies Tryfan, a charming double-fronted stone built, detached cottage.

Boasting pretty views of the surrounding hilltops and rugged terrains, as well as offering a delightful garden perfect for enjoying the warmer months outdoors, this property is ideal for a family or group of friends looking to explore this scenic area of North Wales.

Stepping into the property, leave your coats and shoes in the hallway, which boasts gorgeous original tile floors and make your way into the sitting room.

The sitting room provides a wonderful social space for the group, complete with a warming electric stove set in a dramatic centre-room cove; half of the sitting room hosts a plush corner sofa for you to snuggle up with your loved ones, and the other half of the room hosts quality armchairs which have been thoughtfully arranged to create a peaceful zone while still enjoying the communal aspects of the room.

From here, make your way into the well-equipped kitchen where you will find all the necessary appliances to assist with your self catering requirements including a gas hob, electric oven and a handy dishwasher; quintessentially Welsh, the countertops and windowsills in the kitchen are lovingly crafted from high-quality slate, adding to the charm of the cottage.

Beyond here, happen upon the dining room where the group can gather at the extendable dining table to catch up on the day's events.

As night rolls in, climb the stairs to the bedrooms for to rest your eyes ahead of a adventurous day of discovering your surroundings.

The first floor hosts five bedrooms, each fit with plenty of storage for your belongings and quality beds, including two doubles and a single, as well as a king-size with a pretty dressing table so you can get ready in style.

The final bedroom is another king-size with an en-suite bathroom, fit with a bath, shower over, a basin and a WC so you can escape from the group to indulge in a good book in a bubble bath.

Completing the interior of the property is a family bathroom with a bath, shower over, basin and WC, proving plenty of space to freshen up between activities, and a handy ground-floor cloakroom and utility area.

Outside, the multilevel garden offers a lovely space for soaking up the last of the summer sun with a glass of wine in hand; the garden hosts furniture for an alternative dining arrangement and both lawn and patio areas with magnificent views over the rolling and craggy hills.

Treat your loved ones to a meal out during your stay in one of the local restaurants; Y Chwarelwr, The Quarryman Bar & Grill is just a short walk from the cottage and offers traditional pub grub in a friendly setting.

If you cannot tear yourself away from the cottage, why not enjoy a takeaway in your home away from home from Trish & Chips, for classic chip shop dinners, or perhaps Red Chillis for Indian cuisine.

The area is bursting with attractions and activities for you to uptake such as mountain biking in the Snowdonia mountain range, zip lining and hiking.

The famous Zip World Slate Caverns is within easy reach of the dwelling by car and provides a truly unique experience within breath-taking underground caverns and packed with thrilling activities; here you will also find Bounce Below, an extraordinary activity of bouncing through caves, difficult to find elsewhere.

If you prefer to stay above ground, spend an afternoon exploring the pretty Plas Tan y Bwlch Gardens; the tremendous positioning of the grand house overlooks the valley of the River Dwryryd and the neatly-kept grounds give you a wonderfully peaceful day of strolling leisurely before stopping at the café for tea and cake and heading back to the abode.

Bring your friends and family to Tryfan for a memorable holiday any time of year.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £600.
