Maentwrog 2.2 miles.
This charming semi-detached cottage is neatly tucked away and nestled amongst some lovely woodland and scenery.
Situated in an elevated position in a semi-rural location in the little hamlet, known as Rhyd y Sarn, which is almost half-way between the pretty little village of Maentrwog and the larger historic slate mining town of Blaenau Ffestiniog.
There’s no vehicle access and parking is just 50 yards away in a layby.
Ascend along a public footpath and this little hidden gem will be revealed.
Bron Olau is the perfect romantic ‘get away from it all’ retreat and is a great base for a couple from which to explore this beautiful part of North Wales and the Snowdonia National Park.
Oozing charm and character, Bron Olau dates back some 200 years and boasts some wonderful features such as exposed stone, exposed beams, purlins, slate flooring and an impressive inglenook fireplace in the sitting room with a warming wood burning stove, ideal for a cosy evening in.
A modern, well-appointed kitchen and bathroom will ensure you’ll enjoy all the comforts of home and a spacious Sun room will allow you to offload your outdoor gear.
The characterful double bedroom boasts high ceilings and stripped wood floorboards.
The garden is a lovely feature and is mature and well stocked with a wonderful woodland backdrop, various seating areas means you can sit and relax after a day walking in the mountains, enjoy the tranquil and peaceful setting with a glass of your favourite tipple and with very little light pollution, what a great way to end the day, star gazing long into the night.
There is so much to do here; you’ll never have long enough to discover everything on offer.
As well as some wonderful walks from the door, Blaenau Ffestiniog is fast becoming the adrenaline capital of Wales, offering a unique range of adventures, Zip World Titan and Caverns, Bounce Below and Llechwedd slate caverns, all worth a visit.
For something a little more leisurely you can get the Ffestiniog narrow gauge steam railway to the lovely harbour town of Porthmadog, stay here to do a spot of shopping or you can hop on the Welsh Highland Railway across to Beddgelert and Caernarfon, with its majestic Medieval Castle.
Just a short drive away you’ll discover miles and miles of sandy beaches and dunes.
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 can be enjoyed any time of the year.
