  • "Refreshingly modern, inside and out It was quickly clear how much effort the property owner went into making the Brynglas a modern, comfortable stay."

    It was highly refreshing to stay in a cottage that had been recently, and tastefully refurbished. Not just inside, but out! The only minor improvement I can suggest is that there didn't appear to be a welcome pack, which is usually comes as standard in Sykes Cottages. This would have helped provide some background to the Brynglas, the area, and how to operate the heating etc. Overall, we were very happy (hence the 5 stars), and will definitely consider staying again when in the North Wales region. Thank you! Richard

  • "Easy to book and good, prompt communication with the owner."

    Easy to find, and close to shops and pub. An excellent central location in Snowdonia with easy access to the main walking areas, the coastal area of Porthmadog, and also Anglesey. The property is spotless and well maintained with stunning views of the mountains and surrounding areas

  • "Leri was very welcoming and the cottage was warm and cosy with a super effective wood burning stove that kept up snug every evening!"

    The cottage is well equipped with a spacious kitchen dining room and the owners have thought of everything we needed for our stay. There is ample parking conveniently outside the cottage too. The views at the rear of the property beyond the garden are breathtaking with lovely walks. Although we didn’t use the garden and terrace due to our visit in December, it will be superb for alfresco dining and relaxing in during the warmer weather and summer months. Convenient place to stay with easy access to local supermarkets.

The property

This contemporary, semi-detached cottage sits close to the centre of Blaenau Ffestiniog, a historic mining town in the Eryri (Snowdonia) National Park.

Superbly refurbished and restored with great attention to detail, Brynglass has been well thought out with comfort in mind, providing an excellent base for families and friends.

Boasting oak features and bespoke handcrafting panelling throughout, combined with a modern and fresh interior, Brynglass will not disappoint and you are ensured a warm Welsh welcome.

Prepare a sumptuous feast in the kitchen while listening to music in the bluetooth speaker, amply-appointed with all the mods and cons required for a short break, including an electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer and dishwasher, before settling down at the dining table to share a wholesome family dinner.

Step in the sitting room, throw another log on the fire and unwind into the evening before heading up to bed.

Continue your favourite series into bed with Smart TVs in the king-size bedrooms, while the bunk bedroom accommodates perfectly for children, each well-presented for a pleasant stay.

Outside you can make the most of a sunny afternoon and sit in the terraced garden, providing picturesque vistas over the slate mountains from the top.

Blaenau Ffestiniog, and the surrounding areas are a walkers and hikers haven; considered the former ‘slate mine of the world’, you are sure to find an attraction for you, whether it be immersing yourself in the town's history or challenging yourself to a climb up the steep-sided mountains.

Take in the hustle and bustle of the town’s highstreet, popping in and out of shops in search of a souvenir for back home before sampling the delicious local food in a restaurant or pub.

The surrounding area has attractions to suit all the family, with the Zip Caverns and Bounce Below offering a unique adventure into the underground caves or hop on board the famous narrow Gauge Ffestiniog mountain railway nearby, passing through awe-inspiring views of the Eryri (Snowdonia) National Park and over to the lovely harbour town of Porthmadog.

Hikes, trails and cycles are in no short supply within the Snowdonia National Park, including a hike to the summit of Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon), Wales’ highest mountain, while you are also within striking distance of the charming coastline, where you will find the resort of Porthmadog and Portmeirion, both offering great days out.

Gather loved ones for an action-packed escape to Brynglass.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £350.
