    I spoke to the owner prior to arrival, she was most helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed the welcome goodies on arrival! Although only about a mile from the local shop and pub, the cottage is set within the hills so it’s downhill to the local town but uphill back! Quite a quiet town but we walked down and enjoyed a lovely lunch in one of the cafes. A few amenities still closed or only doing restricted services due to Covid. It rained everyday, and with being in the hills we got the worst of the weather so did venture out in the car most days to seek some drier weather. The cottage is a great base for walking.

The property

This delightful mid-terrace cottage is situated in an elevated situation on the outskirts of the historic slate mining town of Blaenau Ffestiniog, right in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park.

This cottage is deceptively spacious for a traditional slate miners cottage and provides a wonderful base for exploring the area with its rich cycle paths, walks, rivers and waterfalls and is perfect for a couple, friends or a family who love the outdoors.

Sympathetically refurbished and renovated to a good standard, this charming cottage is lovingly maintained and well-presented by the owner; attention to detail is obvious with lots of wonderful muted colours, co-ordinating soft furnishings and wonderful fabrics.

Miners cottages is very individual and stylish and has some lovely features, including a wonderful fireplace in the sitting room housing an attractive wood burning stoves which creates a wonderful ambience and a relaxing atmosphere on those cooler evenings.

The kitchen caters for all your needs and the conservatory is a lovely place to sit and relax, enjoy a good book or to enjoy a meal together but with a choice of pubs and eating establishments within a fifteen minute walk, all offering evening meals, I doubt you’ll want to cook!

The downstairs shower room is modern whilst upstairs there are two well-appointed bedrooms, all with a pleasant outlook over countryside and encompassing craggy scenery.

The cottage has a lovely enclosed rear patio which is a lovely place to sit out and enjoy the evening sun.

Just across from the cottage is Llechwedd slate cavers and ZipWorld Titan, Zip Caverns and Bounce Below, there is also a café and Antur Stiniog extreme downhill mountain bike tracks and trails and a 15 minute stroll and you are in the town centre, offering a variety of shops, tea rooms, pubs and eating establishments.

The famous Ffestiniog to Porthmadog Steam Railway starts its journey here too!

Whilst the coastal towns of Harlech and Criccieth, with their medieval Castles and wonderful sandy beaches and hidden coves, and the Italian village and gardens of Portmeirion are all reached in just 30 minutes.

With Snowdonia on the doorstep, and Anglesey and the Llyn Peninsula easily reached, this is a perfect cottage for all to enjoy, whatever the time of year.

About the location


Porthmadog 11 miles.

The fascinating old slate town of Blaenau Ffestiniog is situated in a superb position for exploring the Snowdonia National Park. There is a good selection of shops, pubs and places to eat. The main local attractions include Zip World Slate caverns, the longest zip line in Europe and fastest in the world, this is a great underground adventure. The slate mines - where visitors can take enthralling underground trips to see mining as it was done in days gone by - and the famous narrow gauge Ffestiniog mountain railway which runs for 13 miles through the Snowdonia National Park to the harbour town of Porthmadog. Nearby is Portmeirion village, famous for its architecture and the film set of the cult TV series The Prisoner, plus local beaches, suitable for children, are within easy driving distance.
