The property is set back from the road by the pavement with 2 steps leading up to the front door. The property is situated in a terrace of residential properties and is double glazed throughout which does minimise what little road noise there is. There is private parking to the rear of the cottage and free parking available on the roadside at the front too. The cottage offers a friendly welcome with a warm ambience. An ideal location for exploring the attractions Snowdonia offers.
The old slate mill, Melin Pant yr Ynn is a short walk away and is the earliest surviving slate mill in Blaenau Ffestiniog. Since its closure the mill has been converted into a private house, the home of Falcon Hildred, a renowned local artist. Nowadays the mill, which is grade 2 listed, is open to the public and contains an interesting collection of industrial artefacts and an exhibition of water colour drawings recording the historic town, quarries and dramatic landscape of Blaenau Ffestiniog. The waterwheel can also be seen working, except in very dry conditions.
There are some fantastic walks, lakes & waterfalls from the cottage, and the area is great for fishing, golfing and mountain biking.
The town of Blaenau Ffestiniog is approximately 1 mile away from the cottage, a lovely slate mining town which is steeped in history and is proud of it's heritage of slate and steam. The rugged craggy landscape is an area of outstanding natural beauty, surrounded by the Moelwyn and Manod mountain ranges, and offers a wealth of walks, lakes, waterfalls and attractions such as the World Famous Ffestiniog narrow gauge steam railway and the Llechwedd slate caverns which is also the home of Antur Stiniog's new downhill mountain bike centre with world class downhill tracks and trails.
