The property

A wonderful double fronted stone-built, semi-detached character cottage, in an elevated hillside location Fucheswen, high above the historic mining town of Blaenau Ffestiniog, and enjoys lovely views encompassing the Moelwyn mountain range.

Ty Cynon is located on a single track ‘no through’ road in a tucked away location which makes it a wonderful ‘get away from it all’ retreat whilst still being a short stroll from the town centre and all its amenities.

The cottage provides a perfect base for either a couple, friends or a small family who enjoy outdoor pursuits, country and hillside walks, all of which can be enjoyed right from the cottage doorstep.

Furnished with style and full of character with exposed beams and stonework, Ty Cynon provides cosy, well-equipped accommodation and it’s said even has links with the British sculptor, David Nash who has now settled in Blaenau Ffestiniog.

On entering this delightful cottage you are welcomed into a charming sitting room with warming wood burning stove set in an old stone inglenook fireplace, and an intimate dining area where you can sit and unwind after a day walking in the surrounding mountains.

The fully-fitted modern kitchen with breakfast counter is well-equipped and will cater for all your needs whilst upstairs, two individually styled bedrooms, both enjoying far reaching mountainous views are serviced by a well-appointed bathroom.

Outside, an enclosed seating area leads off the kitchen, and a steeply-terraced rear garden offers views over the rooftops, as well as a relaxing seating area which provides a perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine in the evening and watch the sun go down behind the mountains.

The famous Ffestiniog to Porthmadog Steam Railway starts its journey less than a mile away, and for the more adventurous there is ZipWorld Titan, Zip Caverns and Bounce Below close by whilst the coastal towns of Harlech and Criccieth, with their medieval Castles and wonderful sandy beaches and hidden coves are reached in just 30 minutes.

With Snowdonia on the doorstep, and Anglesey and the Llyn Peninsula easily reached, this is a perfect Blaenau Ffestiniog cottage for all to enjoy, whatever the time of year.
