  • "Nice cosy house."

    Only complaints would be the sofa is uncomfortable, bed needs to be a proper double bed and kitchen could be better equipped. Lovely surprise to see wine and cake waiting for us though ❤

  • "The house is warm and has a big TV and good wifi."

    The owner, Ann, was very helpful. It is situated in a quiet street in Blaenau Ffestiniog - an interesting mixture of alpine village and industrial wasteland - maybe one day it will become a World Heritage Site. There are good views of the Manod range from the windows in the back of the house. If the parking spot is taken, there is a free car park in Wynne Street. To reach it continue past the house for 100m, then turn right, and the car park is another 100m on the right just beyond a construction site.

  • "Immediate impressions as we entered the house were that it was pristinley clean and tidy."

    There were only two adults, so we had plenty of room. Facilities were brilliant. Decent washing machine and tumble dryer - together with some washing capsules. Kitchen had pretty much everything you could want, including foil and cling wrap! Felt very much home-from-home. Lovely sized TV with freesat, and reasonable speed WiFi. Gas central heating throughout and gas fire in front room. We found the central heating struggling when we first turned it up on the day we arrived and used the gas fire instead to heat the front room. Showering was a tad cool when getting out! Bathroom is upstairs at the back, compact but clean and functional. There's an enclosed garden (paved) area for BBQs, sitting out, etc. but it was too cold for us (March), but would be great in warmer months. Although technically public road, we had access all the time to parking right outside the back door all the time we were there - so either the locals were kind or we were fortunate. Mountain views (through the gaps in the houses) which was lovely. Perfect place to stay whilst exploring/walking Snowdonia. Limited amenities at Blaenau (pronounced bly-nah - correct me please locals!), but enough to make do, with a Tesco, Aldi and Lidl not far away at Porthmadog. Fish and chips 2 mins walk away from house were delicious. Highly recommended.

    Ann the owner cannot do enough to help you, such a lovely lady. The welcome goodies were beyond expectations, Lovely homemade Bara brith, biscuits, tea, sachets of coffee and suggar all in sealed glass jars. In the fridge there was milk to make a drink and a lovely bottle of wine. Everything was supplied, washing up liquid, cloths sponges etc even a tea towel also washing tabs for the washing machine. Cottage was cosy, clean and very comfy. Highly recommend Twog just 5 mins walk to all local shops.

  • "Pictures of the exterior don't do justice to this lovely cottage."

    The hill sides can be seen from outside in the patio area and from upstairs windows. The flat is large, clean and comfortable and after a long day of walking Snowdonia trails and sightseeing, it was wonderful to come back to our Welsh cottage to rest. The Wold Cup was televised while we were and we loved the huge TV. The owner Ms. Ann Griffith, surprised us by having a basket of goodies and milk waiting for us. The town is centrally located for easy travel to all parts of Snowdonia and Narth Wales. It's also not crowded with tourists like some of the other places we visited. The Main Street through Blaenau Ffestiniog is a short walk from the cottage and we often walked to the grocery store and bakery. Overall, we loved everything about our stay!!
