The property

A quaint, former quarryman's cottage, offering spectacular views of the Welsh countryside, this neutrally-styled cottage is ideally positioned for a couple or family of four looking to be positioned within the Snowdonia National Park.

Tastefully decorated by the owner's own personal style, giving the cottage a homely touch, there's no better location from which to explore both the coast, mountains and the countryside of North Wales.

Make yourself at home in the spacious sitting room, lighting up the woodburning stove for a cosy atmosphere relaxing on the comfortable sofas and enjoying the tranquil surroundings.

Following on from the sitting room is the quaint dining room, carrying on the traditional style of the cottage and a great place to enjoy the wildlife and the scenery whilst cooking your home-cooked meals.

The kitchen provides all the essential appliances tucked beneath its white units, including an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washer/dryer, tending to all of your self-catering requirements.

Head out of the kitchen stable door and take a seat on the raised lawned area, appreciating your scenery whilst dining alfresco.

On the first floor are the two inviting bedrooms, made up of a king-size and a double, both offering crisp white linens and plenty of storage space for your personal belongings.

The bathroom includes a luxury rainfall shower and underfloor heating for you to enjoy after a day of exploring.

The local area is an extremely tranquil spot, with all of your local amenities being available in the community of Porthmadog in the form of a variety of shops along with pubs and restaurants.

Close by you can find the Zip World Slate Caverns, providing you with a different way to explore the National Park, or head out on foot and climb one of the many peaks to be rewarded with outstanding views.

On the nearby peninsula you can find both the Italianate village of Portmeirion and historic town of Porthmadog, andon the opposite side of Cardigan Bay lies Harlech Castle with it's amazing beach, all offering unique experiences, or venture further to the Isle of Anglesey for uninterrupted views and miles of sandy beach.

Spend a time at Brîg-y-Bwlch for an unforgettable holiday with your friends or family.

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.
