  • "The apartment is lovely and cosy, it has all inventory you need: all for kitchen / washing / dryer etc."

    !. I felt so comfortable, that I extended the booking. Also to keep in touch with Dylan was great, he was really nice and flexible for clarifying topics regarding bookings or additional stuff I needed! I am looking forward to come back with a group may be; I do not need experiments on other apartments in Snowdonia. It was just great and uncomplicated! 10/10 !

The property

Blaenau Ffestiniog 2.1 miles.

Bwthyn Y Bugail, a delightful, 18th century, stone-built terraced cottage, situated on the outskirts of Manod, just over two miles from the historic slate mining town of Blaenau Ffestiniog, in the heart of the Eryri (Snowdonia) National Park.

Bwthyn Y Bugail is one of the original cottages built around 1760 and predates the development of the town, and is an ideal base for couples, friends or a family who enjoy walking and the great outdoors.

Surrounded by dramatic scenery, this charming open plan property boasts glorious mountain views from most aspects and has been sympathetically renovated to retain much original character, including exposed beams, slate flagstone flooring in the kitchen, quarry tiled flooring in the sitting area together with a large, and impressive inglenook fireplace with a woodburning stove, ideal for those chillier evenings or when you just want to curl up and watch your favourite film.

The kitchen is well-equipped with all the neccessities required for a week away, whilst the dining area is where you can enjoy mealtimes and share holiday plans with eachother.

As the night grows dark, venture upstairs and discover two delightful bedrooms, a king-size and a twin, and a contemporary shower room.

To the outside is a lovely terraced rear patio and seating area and is a perfect place to relax after a long day on the mountains with a glass of something chilled.

Being elevated, it makes an ideal vantage point from which to enjoy the scenic countryside and mountainous views.

The surrounding area offers beautiful countryside and stunning views, with the Manod Mawr and Bach mountains and the hidden Manod Lake directly opposite the property.

Nearby Blaenau Ffestiniog offers an array of shops, cafes, restaurants, tea rooms, pubs and a cinema, whilst the Llechwedd Slate Caverns offers a world-class downhill mountain bike track, ZipWorld Titan and Caverns, the largest zip wire zone in Europe and the exciting Bounce Below underground trampolines.

For something a little less exhausting but just as exciting is the world-famous Ffestiniog narrow gauge steam railway which is definitely worth a ride.

Enjoy the nearby bustling town of Porthmadog with its marina, or the enormous beach at Black Rock Sands, whilst Bodnant Gardens and Yr Wydffa (Snowdon) itself are both within easy reach.

Immerse yourself in the beauty of North Wales with a holiday at Bwthyn Y Bugail.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
