Manod View is a charming stone cottage on the fringe of the old slate mining town of Blaenau Ffestiniog, famous for the Ffestiniog narrow gauge steam railway.The cottage offers spacious, comfortable holiday accommodation which is extenuated by the high ceilings and light neutral décor throughout. The cottage is a perfect base for couples, friends and families wishing to explore this area of outstanding natural beauty. Situated amongst some dramatic scenery in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park the cottage is ideally situated for exploring the area, and is only a relatively short walk away and an even shorter drive! from the Ffestiniog Steam Train railway station in the town itself.

The North Wales region

Nowhere else in Britain will you find such variety, in such a compact area, as you will in Snowdonia - or Eryri as it is known in Welsh. There are many places to visit, and things to do in Snowdonia, so come and enjoy what's on offer.

Blaenau Ffestiniog

The property stands slightly elevated from the road with about 5 steps to the front door and is set back by the pavement and front courtyard. The property enjoys a pleasant outlook of craggy mountainous scenery and a waterfall that cascades down the hillside to the front of the cottage. Manod View is situated in a terrace of about 12 cottages close to a road, however the property is double glazed throughout and this does minimise what little road noise there is. There is free parking available on the roadside at the front. Manod View exudes 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 only 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 ½ a 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.
