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.

Location description from owner

The North Wales region

North Wales is a wonderful place to be. It has mountains and unusually warm coastal stretches with sandy beaches, rivers and valleys where Ospreys fish. The area's long and special history from Celtic times to the present day shows from time to time - moments when you catch a Welsh harp, the Gladstone rock in Cwm Llan beneath Snowdon, and the steam railways which once served the world class slate mining industries now providing magical rides and surprising new views of the mountains.

Blaenau Ffestiniog

Blaenau Ffestiniog is the starting point of the beautiful Ffestiniog steam railway, which links with the Welsh Highland steam railway in Porthmadog to run through Beddgelert and past Snowdon itself - you might even hear the whistle from the Cottage! Blaenau is a small mountain town, but has pub and hotel foods, as well as takeaways. There are a growing number of activities to suit many tastes based in the town, ranging from the classic tourist attractions of the newly updated (2014) Llechwedd Slate Caverns, and the gorgeous Ffestiniog Railway to fun for the little ones at the Bridge Cafe, and the world class mountain bike courses by Antur Stiniog for the active.

“A Place of Dreams”

Reviewed 14 Mar 2012

We booked the cottage for the first week in january for well deserved post christmas break and wat a break we had !! The cottage 'Ty Isaf' has a magical quality to it. It felt a little like steppting into the wardrobe in narnia. It is a small end of terrace, which if you blinked you would miss it, but once you open the front door, you are greeted by a beautiful interior. Lovley clean kitchen, with complimentary basket of wine, fruit and jam, which leads onto a beatiful living room with log fire and window seat to admire the view, and boy what a view it is!! From the window and decked garden you can see mountains, clouds and horses. The biggest surprise was the stream that ran alongside the cottage, it was absolutly beautiful and the sound was so tranquil. I first i worried that it would keep us awake at night, but the windows are double glazed so there was no fear of that. It lead onto lovely morning experiances, of opening the window to hear the stream and the curtains to see the mountains and fog. the windows are eye level so you can see the view from bed. The town is quaint and quiet, with everything you need to get by. But, what is great about this location is that it is so central to everything. Everyday we went exploring, Carnarveon, Bangor, Porth Madog, beaches, castles and market towns and we never had to drive for more that 40 minutes - but the views while driving were so breath taking, that is was pleasure to drive around. We left having done so much, but knew that there was more that we hadn't done, so we will be returning very soon. Thank you

Thank you so much for your kind review, I'm so glad you enjoyed yourself. You captured the atmosphere very well! Of course you visited in winter - in a place where the light and atmosphere can change daily, the different seasons are a world apart! It's well worth trying more than one, and you'd be welcome back any time.

“Excellent accommodation situated in stunning and relaxing location.”

Reviewed 31 Oct 2011

We had an excellent week in this beautiful cosy cottage which is excellently maintained. There is a lovely veranda where we had our breakfast, lunch and dinner which looks out to a stunning backdrop of mountains and a stream that runs adjacent to the property. The cottage is ideally located for numerous attractions including the slate mines, steam railway and the lovely seaside resort of Porthmadog. We can't wait to return to the cottage this Easter

Thank you so much for your kind review, and for letting us know that you had a happy stay! You are of course welcome back any time you wish for another chance to get away from it all!
