  • "Everything was perfect."

    This would be more appropriate if the cottage would have a back garden which was not. We enjoyed it a lot and definitely recommend other people to book this as this is a very spacious cottage.

  • "The cottage was comfortable but missed the mark in a lot of different ways!"

    On arrival we were greeted by a small garden area to the front, with a tiny bbq, and bench. The bbq was inadequate for 10 people. When entering the property we were pleasantly surprised by the bedrooms downstairs, and the space upstairs… it was perfect for socialising. But it wasn’t as clean as we would of liked, we could smell dogs and a lot of shelves were dirty. We needed to use the sofa bed and when we got this out we were shocked by the poor quality of the mattress and had to put the sofa cushions under it. The village is a bit of ghost town but the cottage is a great base to explore wales!

  • "The property was fantastic."

    Well equipped and plenty of space for our party. We climbed Snowdon, and visited Harlech Beach, Fairy Glen, Betws-y-coed, Portmeirion, Swallow Falls and Cynfal Falls. All were within a 30 minute drive. Would highly recommend this cottage and will be returning some time in the future. We had an issue with using the oven on the first night and the owner was on hand to fix it straight away. Five stars ⭐️

  • "Fabulous space for a large group."

    Loved the way the space was set out with plenty of room for socialising and two bathrooms was a huge bonus. Great communication from hosts and super information in the welcome file. Brilliant base for exploring and gorgeous walks nearby. The only comment I would make is the accommodation was not as clean as I would have expected. Glass was found under main sofa upstairs (by children who had dropped something) and downstairs had a strong smell which seemed to be due to previous pets urinating on rug. However, main areas such as bedrooms and bathrooms were spotless. We had a fabulous week and even the rain did not spoil our week.

    My Dad is on nighttime dyalisis, I message ahead to see if we could arrive a little earlier to set his machine. The man I contacted was very helpful and accomodating. There was plenty of room for us to set everything up. We would love to go back again in the summer months. It's a thumbs up from us

    Attention to detail and lovely little touches like being welcomed by a bottle of mulled wine!! There was everything you could need. The wood burner was perfect to sit around on a festive evening. Owner always available to answer any queries. A real home from home. 100%recommended.

    This place really exceeded our expectations. So good. Very comfortable for eight of us, six adults and two children. Everyone had enough room to find privacy as needed. The owners have thought of everything and we very much enjoyed our four nights here. Great location too.

  • "The timing of the heating seemed to be a little unusual, but this might just be me!"

    It seemed to come on in the middle of the night rather than the afternoon. The chapel itself is wonderful and beautifully converted and renovated, although the sofas were too big for most of our party. Thanks again.

About the location


Blaenau Ffestiniog 1.1 miles; Porthmadog 8 miles; Betws-y-Coed 15 miles; Beddgelert 16 miles.

Tanygrisiau, meaning "below the steps", refers to the stepped cliffs above this traditional Welsh village. The Moelwyn mountains protect the village from much of the northerly gales in the winter, and give it a pleasant southerly aspect with relatively mild weather considering its location high in Snowdon. The village stands amongst dramatic scenery, and Tanygrisiau is a good starting point for many walks, especially if your intention is to climb Moelwyn itself. Tanygrisiau was famous for its slate mining, producing a high quality black slate that was used across the world. Tanygrisiau railway station is on the famous Ffestiniog Railway, a narrow gauge railway built to carry slate from the mines down to the sea at Porthmadog; today it is a renowned tourist attraction providing stunning views on its trip to the coast. Only 1.1 miles away is Blaenau Ffestiniog, once the capital of slate quarrying and in the 18th century known as the "City of Slate". The town stands in an elevated, natural bowl amidst this mountainous region and has a good variety of shops and pubs, but is best known for its tourist attractions. One of the old quarries is now the renowned Llechwedd Slate Cavern. The famous narrow gauge Ffestiniog Railway provides wonderful trips through spectacular countryside. Enjoy superb walks and bike trails at Coed-y-Brenin, one of the best mountain bike centres in Britain, as well as good climbing at the Plas y Brenin National Mountain Centre, wonderful sandy beaches, or great fishing or golf. Visit delightful Betws-y-Coed, the Italianate Village at Portmeirion, or Bala, with its renowned white water rafting opportunities.
