Description from owner


We offer a homely stone cottage with valley and mountain views, with fresh linen and towels provided. There is an original fireplace with fuel for your first night provided, and a lovely covered decking area outside with table and chairs, to drink coffee whilst admiring the mountain views. There is also a private natural garden with access to a tumbling stream where you may see a heron fishing!

With a range cooker and butler sink, the cottage can happily cater for four people. There are 4 beds in two rooms: one larger room in a super king or twin layout, and an additional two beds in the bunk room which caters for adults or children.

There is a good pub with a very warm welcome within short walking distance of the cottage, called the Manod Hotel; it is dog friendly and has free WiFi! A little further but still within walking distance, good food to be had at CellB, the Meirion,De Niros, Ty Gorsaf (The Station House), a great Indian restaurant and more.

Blaenau Ffestiniog with all its history, is central to the whole of Snowdonia itself with a bewildering variety of activities and places to visit, all within an easy drive. After a hard day enjoying yourself, refreshments can be had just 2 minutes' walk up the road in The Manod Hotel (really a friendly pub!) serving drinks, coffee, snacks and more, including a real ale or two! Other places in Blaenau serve food, including the Meirion, Ty Gorsaf (the station house) and a quality Indian restaurant.

The town itself is home to the Ffestiniog Railway and the Llechwedd Slate Caverns. It has a supermarket, pubs, cafes, takeaways and a number of other useful shops.

There are many attractions to enjoy - soft sandy beaches from the smallest coves to sweeping bays; majestic lush valleys, and estuaries where you may spot an osprey fishing; many romantic and historic castles; the craftwork of woollen mills and potteries; copper and slate mines with dramatic tours; towns to visit include Betws-y-Coed, Beddgelert, Caernarfon, Dolgellau and the famous Italianate creation of Portmeirion!

For walkers there is such a choice. Snowdonia's mountains are world famous including the summit itself, and some with special features such as the Castle of the Wind on top of the Glyders range. The Manod Mawr trail starts virtually from the doorstep; there are local walks within a few minutes' drive, where we particularly recommend the Cwmorthin valley leading to the high Moelwyn mountains with views of Snowdon; and there is a fragment of the "Celtic rain-forest" in the rich moist valley of Cwm Cynfal.

For mountain bikers, there are four bike lock points at the rear of the house. World class mountain trails are continuously being developed by Antur Stiniog right by the side of Blaenau.

“Fab, pet friendly, cosy cottage”

Reviewed 28 Aug 2019

Great location, pet friendly cosy cottage. Alan was great, we loved the flowers and cakes. The children loved the stream in the garden. Thanks so much, we would definately stay there again.

“Gorgeous cottage”

Reviewed 12 Jul 2019

Cannot recommend this cottage enough! Lovely and cosy & in a lovely location! Alan added little touches which made the stay feel really special. We will definitely be staying again! Thank you :)

“Lovely cottage”

Reviewed 2 Jun 2019

Lovely cottage, clean has everything in you need. Alan came down with some very lovely cakes for us, which was very kind. Stunning views from the balcony and we were lucky enough to climb Snowdon on the Tuesday as unfortunately the weather was poor the rest of the week. But we had the fire in the cottage to keep us cosy and warm. Unfortunately not many places to eat out if you were planning on because they either didn’t let dogs in, no children or didn’t cater for you if your coeliac. We did however find some good butchers locally where we just cooked ourselves. Loads of walks on your doorstep which is great.

“Ty Isaf”

Reviewed 15 May 2019

We had a lovely week at Ty ISAF. Alan gave us a friendly welcome. The house is nicely fitted out. The area is lovely. It feels a bit of the tourist trap in Blaenau Ffestiniog which we really liked. We found the shop keepers in the town very friendly. It's a great base for exploring Snowdonia

“Outstanding views”

Reviewed 3 Mar 2019

“A truly lovely cottage”

“Cosy, clean, great value, lovely welcome - pet friendly and cracking location & views”

Reviewed 25 Sep 2018

My father and I used this lovely little cottage as a base from which to explore. It is very well equipped and we were very comfortable despite storm Ali's best efforts! Lovely warm welcome from owner Alan who taught us some Welsh and brought tasty cakes.

“Homely, comfortable cottage”

Reviewed 30 Apr 2018

More spacious than I expected and very practical. Sheltered decking out the back (handy after a walk and also for a sunny breakfast). Double Bed nice and big. The open fire was the icing on the cake on our last day when the weather changed. Cheap fuel available locally. Shop owners and locals friendly and helpful.

“Cosy, clean and friendly”

Reviewed 24 Mar 2018

We can't fault this place. Great welcome from the owner, beautiful little cottage with an amazing view and perfectly clean. It is well equipped too. We felt at home very quickly, in front of the roaring fire after a long day walking. The town is a very authentic welsh ex mining town; not at all touristy. There is plenty to see and do within a short drive Great little cottage


Reviewed 16 Dec 2017

Lovely cottage in terrific surrounding's. Nice little town with everything you need & a lovely pub virtually next door! Nice to meet the owner who arrived with fresh flowers & cake from the local baker & made us feel welcome. Would love to live there full time but We'll have to settle for another visit in the spring!
