  • “We are training for the 3 peaks challenge and had originally booked 3 nights in a hotel, we decided to have a look last minute for any cottages that might be available in the area and came across Ty Kate, it was such great value for money so we booked and we are so glad we did!”

    Absolutely adorable cottage, perfect size for me and my partner, we had everything we could need and the wine, chocolates and card on arrival was such a lovely touch. We were very grateful to have the use of a washing machine with a drying function as we got completely soaked on our first day up snowdon so to be able to come back, pop the washing on and put the fire on to warm us up was great! The bed was so comfortable and the shower was good. All the cooking and tea making essentials were there which was great and the WiFi worked really well too! We could not fault this place and we are definitely booking again for our next trip to Wales!

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 wind from northerly gales in the winter, and give the village a pleasant southerly aspect with relatively mild weather considering its location high in Snowdon. The village stands amongst some 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, 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.
