    “Yr Asda was wonderful, more than we hoped for - the cottage was very clean and immaculate.”

    The welcome pack of milk and Welsh cakes was just what we need when we arrived after s long drive. The kitchen had everything you could ever need, and the bedrooms were lovely. Amazing bedding and thick lovely towels added a touch of luxury.

About the location


Porthmadog 11 miles.

The fascinating old slate town of Blaenau Ffestiniog is situated in a superb position for exploring the Snowdonia National Park. There is a good selection of shops, pubs and places to eat. The main local attractions include Zip World Slate caverns, the longest zip line in Europe and fastest in the world, this is a great underground adventure. The slate mines - where visitors can take enthralling underground trips to see mining as it was done in days gone by - and the famous narrow gauge Ffestiniog mountain railway which runs for 13 miles through the Snowdonia National Park to the harbour town of Porthmadog. Nearby is Portmeirion village, famous for its architecture and the film set of the cult TV series The Prisoner, plus local beaches, suitable for children, are within easy driving distance.
