  • “Excellent stay”

    This cottage exceeded our expectations! I cannot praise this property enough! The owner had put a lot of thought and detail into this cosy cottage. There was plenty of written information of local walks and attractions in the area. The garden is very secure should you wish to bring your four legged friends with you. The cottage was beautiful and clean with good decoration throughout. Everything was in the cottage we could have wanted, right down to pen and paper! The weather was glorious for ...

    This cottage exceeded our expectations! I cannot praise this property enough! The owner had put a lot of thought and detail into this cosy cottage. There was plenty of written information of local walks and attractions in the area. The garden is very secure should you wish to bring your four legged friends with you. The cottage was beautiful and clean with good decoration throughout. Everything was in the cottage we could have wanted, right down to pen and paper! The weather was glorious for the week we stayed there in July but i could imagine the cottage being really warm and cosy on chilly nights with the log burner. Snowdonia is well worth a visit as is the slate mines just up the road. The only downside we found was eating out in the close vacinity but this was not a real problem as we explored the area each day.

The property

A traditional character, detached stone-built cottage on the outskirts of Manod just over 1 mile from Blaenau Ffestiniog and 20 minutes from golden sandy beaches.

Well-appointed and full of character, with many original features, this charming Manod cottage dates back to the 18th century and offers very welcoming accommodation throughout.

This Manod cottage has a beamed, farmhouse kitchen and dining area with original slate floor and feature stone fireplace, and a cosy sitting room with warming woodburning stove set in a large inglenook hearth, with the original bread oven still in place.

There are also stylish bedrooms with original stripped wood flooring and exposed stone walls, and a traditional bathroom.

To the rear of your Manod cottage is a pretty, enclosed terraced garden with the benefit of off road parking.

There are superb walking tracks from the doorstep of this Manod cottage that open onto miles of unspoilt countryside in the heart of Snowdonia, or perhaps you would rather get the mountain bikes out and enjoy the superb facilities at the nearby international downhill bike tracks?

Don't miss the steam railway line from Blaenau Ffestiniog to Porthmadog, opening up access to the whole of the Tremadog Bay coastline with its superb sandy beaches and miles of coastal paths.

Whether it's stunning countryside or coastal towns you're looking for, this Manod cottage provides easy access for both.

About the location

MANOD

Blaenau Ffestiniog 1.5 miles; Porthmadog 10 miles; Betws-y-Coed 13 miles.

Manod is situated between the impressive Manod and Moelwyn mountains near the centre of Snowdonia National Park. Only 1.5 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, 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, or there is the magnificent hydroelectric power station and famous narrow gauge Ffestiniog Railway providing wonderful trips through spectacular countryside. Enjoy superb walks and bike trails, good climbing at the Plas y Brenin National Mountain Centre, wonderful sandy beaches, great fishing or golf, or visit delightful Betws-y-Coed, the Italianate Village at Portmeirion, or Bala, with its renowned white-water rafting opportunities.
