Hen Aelwyd Yr Urdd
Cottage | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
Hen Aelwyd Yr Urdd was originally built over a hundred years ago and has been sympathetically converted to offer accommodation for up to 2 people; a haven for couples looking to get away from it all. Much of its original character has been preserved through exposed beams, an inglenook fireplace and an open fire. There is parking available, and some local amenities are only a short walk away. The cottage is perfectly situated for access to other attractions, such as the North-West Welsh coast and nearby caves.

The North Wales region
Famous for its choirs, stunning mountain ranges and beautiful valleys, this wonderful country has something for everyone. From Snowdonia in North Wales to the Brecon Beacons and the Pembrokeshire Coast in the South.
Llan Ffestiniog is a picturesque village in Gwynedd, just 3 miles south of Blaenau Ffestiniog, in North Wales. The village itself is made up of rows of dark stone and slate-roofed houses. There are a few shops and chapels, but it is the dramatic scenery that really stands out; to the east there are the rolling moor-lands of the Migneint, whilst to the south and west is the beautiful Vale of Ffestiniog, a valley of thick woodland that plays host to a number of bubbling rivers and green meadows. Attractions near the village include the Rhaesdr Cynfal waterfalls and the remains of the Tomen-y-Mûr Roman fort and amphitheatre. The Cynfal waterfalls are part of the Ceunant Cynfal Nature Reserve. There is a large pillar shaped rock above the falls, known as Huw Llwyd’s pulpit, named after a 17th century wizard or preacher. The Nature Reserve is Site of Scientific Importance, housing many animals and plants that can only survive where there are old trees and a moist atmosphere.
