The property

A very well-presented and modern, semi-detached cottage located in a small cul-de-sac in the village of Manod, just on the outskirts of the historic, slate mining town of Blaenau Ffestiniog in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park.

This cottage provides an ideal base for families or groups of friends to explore the area and spend time together.

The cottage is spacious, light and bright, and has been decorated to a high standard to offer comfortable accommodation throughout.

The spacious sitting room is a great place for everyone to sit, chat and relax after a busy day walking and exploring, and the well-equipped kitchen has a dining area, perfect for leisurely breakfasts and late suppers.

Three spacious bedrooms all individually furnished and styled with solid oak beds and two of the bedrooms enjoy distant views over the rooftops towards the Moelwyn mountain range.

A modern bathroom, an additional basin and WC and a utility completes this lovely holiday cottage.

To the front there is a lawned area with furniture, and at the rear, steps lead up to a raised patio area with furniture which catches the morning sun, ideal for enjoying a cup of tea whilst planning the day ahead.

In the garage there is storage space for bikes and equipment and if the weather keeps you indoors, there is a pool table, table tennis table and a dart board here!

The whole area is fantastic for walkers, with some wonderful routes from the door to lakes, mountains and waterfalls, and there are some fantastic mountain bike tracks and trails all within easy reach.

Blaenau Ffestiniog is becoming increasingly popular amongst those seeking some thrills!

Zip World Titan, the longest zip wire in Europe, Bounce Below and Zip Caverns, a subterranean system of trampolines and zip wires deep underground, are all a short drive away, and of course there is the famous Ffestiniog Steam Railway to Porthmadog.

The Italian village of Portmeirion is 5 miles away, and historic castles and sandy beaches are all within a 20 minute drive.

There is so much on offer to keep you busy in the Snowdonia National Park you’ll just have to come back to fit it all in!

About the location


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.
