The North Wales region

Snowdonia is a land that boasts a unique blend of natural beauty, history, culture and vibrancy. Blaenau Ffestiniog lies at the very heart of the Snowdonia National Park, welcoming you to explore the rugged mountains, picturesque valleys, tranquil lakes, forests, waterfalls and sandy beaches. Steeped in history, it is the magical setting for many of the Welsh Mabinogian tales so make sure you discover some of the romantic castles which are dotted along the coast and within the dramatic landscape. Far away enough to be "away from it all", good road and rail networks mean that connect Snowdonia is just a few hours drive from Liverpool and Birmingham airports.

Blaenau Ffestiniog

As the former 'slate capital of Wales' Blaenau Ffestiniog has a strange, compelling beauty. Screes of broken slate tumble down steep-sided mountains, mixing with Snowdonia's natural grandeur. Glimpse into Blaenau's unique history at the Llechwedd Slate Caverns, one of Wales's most successful tourist attractions. Make a day of it and travel here by the narrow-gauge Ffestiniog Railway from Porthmadog. Bring your bike/s – a new lakeside cycle trail along Tanygrisiau Lake and a specialist mountain biking downhill route at Llechwedd, opened in 2012. Recent town centre improvements have revitalised the shopping area and Britain's first pedal-powered velorail attraction, connecting Blaenau Ffestiniog with Trawsfynydd, opens soon. Nearby is the charming Italianate village of Portmeirion, famously the location for the cult TV series "The Prisoner". The steam Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railway is the world's oldest independent railway company and runs a regular service from Easter to the end of October. Newly opened Antur Stiniog is a mountain bike centre with four trails and an uplift service. Other local activities include walking, climbing, cycling, caving, kayaking, fishing, golf and bird watching. Note: the weather can change quickly in the mountains so always be well-prepared when walking or climbing.

We booked this cottage a while ago, not knowing what to expect. The owner kept in touch with us giving useful information before our visit. On arrival we were thrilled, the cottage was beautiful, so well equipped, very clean, and the owner had left us a hamper as a welcome gift! We could not have asked for more, the price we paid for the week was extremely reasonable, and we cannot recommend enough that others consider renting this property. We will certainly holiday with this owner again.

I'm SO glad you enjoyed yourselves and that the cottage exceeded your expectations! Thank you for taking the time to write such a lovely review. Please do come back again soon, a warm Welsh welcome awaits you (we call it Cwtch in Welsh x).

"Me and Mum had a lovely lovely stay in your cottage"

We walked, we wandered, we had tea in town, we went to the slate cavern, we saw my cousin, we ate out, we sat in, we watched a movie, we watched the rugby players, we soaked in the Welsh-ness, we had sunshine and rain and all in all a very cosy and relaxing time. No Snowdon but maybe we can come back and try that again another time. Your hamper of goodies was a great treat although we barely made a dent in the pile of things to choose from. I think I ate the box of chocolates steadily over the weekend. We've left our lovely comments in your visitors book for others to read. Both of us have already talked about coming back again! Thank you so very much.

"We didn't want for one thing, a home from home."

An excellent welcome with a warm homely comfortable feel, every thing that we needed and more was here, with a great equiped kitchen and including plently of books and toys for our children, a real home from home in a well positioned location with a stunning hill view.

Thank you for your lovely comments! I'm so glad you enjoyed yourselves and please come back again soon.

"Idyllic cottage nested in north Wales with easy access to many activities"

On arrival the welcome hamper was beautiful stocked with lots of helpful local products. The cottage has been recently done out to a beautiful standard and made us feel really at home for a snowy birthday weekend. The cottage is kitted out for couples and families alike and has everything you could need. Would certainly recommend this cottage for anyone wanting a exceptional self catering cottage

Thank you so much, it was lovely to have you to stay and I hope you come back soon and see the place in the summer too!
