    “We had a lovely family holiday at 2 ...”

    We had a lovely family holiday at 2 Fron Goch, Maentwrog. The cottage was beautifully presented and had lots of welcoming touches. It is set up above a quiet road with amazing views along the estuary and the occasional sound of the steam train passing across the valley, delightful! As it is near the coast you have a great choice of beach or inland activities and everyone made us feel so welcome. We would recommend a visit to the cottage and to this beautiful area.

The property

This charming, double-fronted, Grade II listed terraced cottage is in an elevated position, commanding superb open views to the front over the Vale of Maentwrog and towards Moel y Gest in the distance, in the pretty Welsh village of Maentwrog in the Snowdonia National Park.

This well-presented cottage is ideal for couples, friends or small families who want to enjoy time together exploring one of the most beautiful parts of the Snowdonia National Park.

A warm welcome awaits you and you’ll really appreciate and enjoy the peace and tranquillity on offer here.

Furnished with style, this comfortable cottage boasts some lovely features and lots of character.

The comfy sitting room is perfect for a night in, with reclining sofa and armchairs and a lovely inglenook fireplace with a warming woodburning stove to enjoy.

The kitchen is well-appointed and has everything you’ll need, and the dining area provides a place to sit and enjoy a leisurely breakfast while you plan the day’s activities.

Upstairs, a modern, well-appointed shower room and two delightful and individually styled double bedrooms, each enjoying fantastic views.

At the front of the cottage is a small enclosed patio garden with table and chairs.

The patio provides a pleasant seating area to take full advantage of the superb panoramic views over the Vale of Maentwrog and with glimpses of the Ffestiniog steam train.

The surrounding area is fantastic for walkers, with Llyn Mair Nature Reserve only a few minutes’ away, a truly hidden gem with its beautiful lake and network of nature trails through ancient woodland which is a haven to birds and wildlife.

The lake is surrounded by mixed woodland that forms part of the extensive western Oakwood that comprises much of Coedydd Maentwrog, a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest.

After a busy day walking in the woods and mountains, you can amble along to the renowned Grapes Hotel, a 17th century coaching Inn, which is only a short stroll from the cottage and offers home-cooked food, good wines and cask conditioned ales.

Travel up towards Blaenau Ffestiniog which is only 3 miles away and home to Zip World Titan, the longest zip wire in Europe.

You can also visit Bounce Below and Zip Caverns, a subterranean system of trampolines and zip wires deep underground.

If you would like to explore the area by bike, there is the Antur Stiniog Mountain Bike centre with its variety of trails and, of course, don’t leave out the famous Ffestiniog Steam Railway which will take you to Porthmadog.

The Italianate village of Portmeirion is 5 miles away, together with historic castles and sandy beaches which are all only a short drive away.

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!

Everything is within easy reach of this homely cottage which has something for everyone all year round.

About the location

MAENTWROG

Tan y Bwlch 0.5 miles; Blaenau Ffestiniog 3 miles; Penrhyndeudraeth 4 miles; Porthmadog 7 miles.

Maentwrog is a village and community in the Welsh county of Gwynedd, lying in the Vale of Ffestiniog just below Blaenau Ffestiniog, within the Snowdonia National Park. The River Dwyryd runs alongside the village, on the periphery and adds to the picturesque environment. The village has its own highly regarded traditional inn, the Grapes Hotel, well known for its food and atmosphere and the Oakeley Arms is also nearby. The scenic area around Maentwrog has many public footpaths plus the beauty spot of Plas Tan Y Bwlch and the Ffestiniog Steam Railway are also within a few miles. Nearby Plas Tan y Bwlch, substantially rebuilt during the 19th century by the Oakeley family on the site of a first house probably built in the early 17th century, overlooks the village. Plas Tan y Bwlch has its own halt - Plas Halt - on the Ffestiniog Railway, and nearby Tan-y-Bwlch railway station is the railway's principal intermediate station. Maentwrog means Twrog's stone and according to legend, a giant known as Twrog hurled a boulder from the top of a hill down into the settlement, destroying a pagan altar. This stone is said to be the one located in St Twrog's Church courtyard. It is said that if one rubs this boulder one is fated to return to the village in the future. The village settlement expanded in the 19th century to house workers from local slate mines. Within the village community is the imposing Plas Tan y Bwlch, home of the Snowdonia National Park Study Centre and former residence of the Oakeley family. A superb base from which to discover the Snowdonia National Park and all of North Wales.
