Description from owner


* Ty Isaf Covid refund policy - please ask, we want you to book with confidence!

* Special offer - reduced price for 7 day bookings!

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. Electricity and gas is included, and from 100% renewable and carbon offset sources.

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 Wi-Fi! A little further but still within walking distance, tasty 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 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.

Very Good

“Perfect Birthday Weekend”

Reviewed 20 Oct 2020

We have just returned from a 3 night stay in Wales and we had a great time. The cottage has everything you'll ever need, wonderful views, cosy and warm, great shower, comfortable beds, close to all the amenities you'll need, lovely neighbours and did I mention the epic views!? All aspects of our stay ran smoothly. We found the car park (With the cottage on your right it's the next right immediately after the cottage) no problem, there was plenty of information in the cottage, pinned up on the wall or in little folders on the coffee table. Alan was great and really helpful throughout our stay. There are a few decent pubs in the area, along with a few restaurants, a medium sized Co-Op and an excellent fish and chip shop. If you like walking, there's an excellent walk nearby, up to the slate quarry where you'll find some great peaceful little lakes hidden in the hills. Snowdon is also nearby too although you'll need to drive, it took us around 30 minutes from the cottage to car park for the Watkin Path. The one downside is that there is no WiFi which may or not be an issue for you. It wasn't a big deal for us although my girlfriend is on Three and had no data signal at all in the cottage. I'm on EE and had decent 4G signal. The TV is decent though and there are 10 or so DVDs if you want a chilled night in front of a film. Overall we loved our stay and I highly recommend staying here if you visit Wales or want to climb Snowdon. We will definitely be staying again.
