  • "Carys, don't change a thing, everything was perfect ."

    Lovely comfortable beds, a cosy living room, everything you could possibly need and lovely and clean. Thank you for the pint of milk and the welsh cakes, very much appreciated. Great central location in the village and for exploring Snowdonia. Would thoroughly recommend.

  • "A really warm,modern, well equipped cottage that was the perfect bolt hole after exploring North Wales."

    All the activities we had booked were within 50 mins drive, Anglesey, Harlech, Betws Y Coed, Zip Forest, Caernarfon Castle…. The town itself is a little bleak but two good shops within walking distance and we had lovely take aways (pizza, fish & chips, Indian). The pint of milk and Welsh cakes were much appreciated ❤️

    Glad you enjoyed your break and we look forward to hosting you again. Property Owner

  • "Comfortable and cosy cottage, well equipped and a good base to visit lots of other tourists attractions."

    The little sun lounge terrace at back of property is a little difficult to access, specially when steps are wet. Our dog had difficulty getting up them and it didn't get the sun in the evening . It would be nice if the front of the property was tidied up a bit. The front of the house could do with a lick of paint and maybe a trellis in front of wheely bins and a few low maintenance plant pots. The sun is at the front in the evening, so it would make it more pleasant to sit outside.

    Thanks glad you enjoyed your stay, the front of the property is due a refresh as we only took over the property less than a year ago, not sure we can change the aspect of the sun and the terrace but will incorporate your views in any changes. Look forward to welcoming you again. Property Owner

  • "We loved this little terraced cottage!"

    All the facilities we could ever need, with some little extras such as milk and welsh cakes. A comprehensive range of information and a perfect location right in the centre of Blaenau. We had a lovely time, despite the weather, thank you. Hubby struggled to work out how to use the TV remotes but worked it out eventually - maybe some instruction on how to access Sky would be helpful to future holiday makers. There were books, dvds, and games available for use too. Loved that there was a little supermarket just across the road - and people really should try the Kurdish Pasties from the bakery a little further up. A great central location for many sites of interest. We particularly enjoyed Betws-y-coed and Beddgelert. Such pretty villages!!

    Glad you enjoyed your stay despite the weather. Thanks for the suggestion on the TV remotes we'll do that when we next visit. Yes the Kurdish bakery is an unexpected gem of a place. Property Owner

  • "Very clean and tidy property."

    Property in the middle of town and handy for shops. Car can be parked in front of property but extra long vehicles need a bit of shunting. Loved Wales, with highlights being Snowdon and surrounding area, Portmeirion, Anglesey and Betws y coed. Just a brilliant few days

    Glad you enjoyed your stay, it was originally built as a quarryman/miners cottage so not originally designed for car parking but agree extra long vehicles do need to take extra care when parking up. We look forward to welcoming you again. Property Owner

  • "Cosy cottage nestling in the heart of Blaenau, better than the pictures show."

    There's a lovely courtyard area out front for sitting with flowers and bees and birdsong, and the terrace at the back is truly special. The cottage was very clean and comfortable, the only small minus was the water pressure which made showering a little unpredictable. Overall I had a lovely stay and glorious weather, enabling me to go out and explore the fascinating area, walk in the mountains, and rest in the cool shade of the cottage. Loved it! thank you.

    Glad you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Property Owner

  • "The cottage was very clean and comfortable."

    The heating was efficient and kept upstairs warm although the living room stayed quite cold (just the nature of the thick walls and being against the hillside). It wasn’t really an issue though as we had the option to light the fire which would have cosied the room up more. Beds were very comfortable. Good shower. Kitchen well equipped. Would have been good to have had full use of wardrobe/ cupboard in front single bedroom but half of it was locked so not quite enough storage. Front door was quite difficult to lock from inside and parking slightly tricky but ok once we got used to it. Sykes responded quickly when we had a problem with the smoke alarm and the housekeeper kindly came out straight away to see if she could help. The location is great for getting around. Recommend the steam train to Porth Madog, the slate cavern tour at zip world, Beddgelert village including copper mine tour, Portmeirion, Harlech Castle and of course Mount Snowdon which was the main reason for our stay. Also lots of interesting walks around Blaenau itself and the Fish and chip shop was good. Overall a good stay and would recommend this cottage.

    Glad you enjoyed the stay and apologies for the fault with smoke alarm, it is now rectified Property Owner

The property

A well-appointed double fronted mid terrace cottage, located 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 is ideal for a couple, friends, or family, keen walkers, cyclists, and outdoor enthusiasts alike.

This lovely 19th century slate workers cottage offers a modern and fresh interior, tastefully furnished, and decorated throughout whilst still retaining character and charm.

Decorated in neutral colours and soft warming greys, the sitting room hosts plush seating and a woodburning stove which creates a homely atmosphere where guests can relax after a busy day walking and exploring.

Discover the intimate dining area, a great spot to relish a feast, served up by the designated chef, and crack open a bottle of bubbly.

Ascend the stairs to uncover three individually styled bedrooms, a double and two singles, as well as a family bathroom where you can indulge a long soak.

To the exterior, make use of the private decked area by basking in the rugged mountainous views on a summer evening.

From your doorstep, discover a range of shops, restaurants, pubs and even a cinema, as well as some fantastic walks with great access to Snowdonia; Blaenau Ffestiniog is also 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!).

A vast array of mountain bike tracks and trails are peppered across the landscape, or if you’re seeking something a little less energetic, the well-known Ffestiniog narrow gauge steam railway is guaranteed to be loved by all.

A little further afield, why not visit the Italian village and gardens of Portmeirion for an afternoon of escapism.

Ideally placed and providing a great base for a holiday or short break anytime of the year, visit Bridgeway House.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
