  • “The cottage was very clean and well stocked plus the Welcome Package was a lovely touch.”

    It is a great base for seeing North Wales.

    It is a great base for seeing North Wales. There were only two people plus a small dog and I would say it would be a little small for a family plus a large dog?

The property

This lovely mid-terraced cottage is situated on a quiet residential road surrounded by rugged scenery and close to wonderful lakeside walks, in the pretty Welsh village of Tanygrisiau, just over a mile from the popular town of Blaenau Ffestiniog, on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park in North Wales.

The cottage provides an excellent base for family, friends or a couple looking to explore all that this fabulous area has to offer.

Lovingly refurbished, this delightful cottage offers homely accommodation throughout.

The welcoming light and bright sitting room.

The kitchen with modern units is well equipped and everything you need has been catered for.

A cosy dining area is perfect for two, but with two extra foldaway chairs, and a table which extends means even a family can sit and enjoy a leisurely breakfast, whilst planning your day ahead.

A well-appointed bathroom with white, modern suite is also on the ground floor.

Three delightful bedrooms are upstairs, each individually styled with comfy beds and pretty linen, ensuring you have a good night’s sleep.

Outside there is an enclosed front patio which enjoys a sunny aspect for most of the day and provides a nice area to sit and enjoy an early morning coffee, whilst enjoying the surrounding countryside views.

Just a short walk across the lane is a playground, ideal for the children to play and burn off any excess energy.

There are an abundance of pretty walks to waterfalls and around lakes, cycle paths and mountain bike tracks, all available from the doorstep, making this a great family base.

For train enthusiasts the Ffestiniog Steam Railway is close by, and can be heard as it passes by behind the cottage.

Zip World Titan and Caverns, the longest 4-man zip in Europe, and Bounce Below, an underground trampolining experience, and the magnificent slate caverns at Llechwedd, are also nearby.

The North Wales coast is easily accessible too, and other attractions such as Portmeirion with its Italianate village and gardens, and many historic castles are just a short drive away.

There really is something for everyone and this lovely cottage means you can enjoy exploring both coast and country at any time of the year.

About the location


Blaenau Ffestiniog 1.1 miles; Porthmadog 8 miles; Betws-y-Coed 15 miles; Beddgelert 16 miles.

Tanygrisiau, meaning "below the steps", refers to the stepped cliffs above this traditional Welsh village. The Moelwyn mountains protect the village from much of the northerly gales in the winter, and give it a pleasant southerly aspect with relatively mild weather considering its location high in Snowdon. The village stands amongst dramatic scenery, and Tanygrisiau is a good starting point for many walks, especially if your intention is to climb Moelwyn itself. Tanygrisiau was famous for its slate mining, producing a high quality black slate that was used across the world. Tanygrisiau railway station is on the famous Ffestiniog Railway, a narrow gauge railway built to carry slate from the mines down to the sea at Porthmadog; today it is a renowned tourist attraction providing stunning views on its trip to the coast. Only 1.1 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 and 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. The famous narrow gauge Ffestiniog Railway provides wonderful trips through spectacular countryside. Enjoy superb walks and bike trails at Coed-y-Brenin, one of the best mountain bike centres in Britain, as well as good climbing at the Plas y Brenin National Mountain Centre, wonderful sandy beaches, or great fishing or golf. Visit delightful Betws-y-Coed, the Italianate Village at Portmeirion, or Bala, with its renowned white water rafting opportunities.
