From the owner

Gwalia Cottage is a 19th Century quarryman's cottage, just outside the famous slate town of Blaenau Ffestiniog, and within walking distance of Zip World and Bounce Below! Surrounded by breath-taking scenery, wonderful walks, steam trains( you can even hear the whistle blow from the garden!), castles to explore and glorious beaches to relax on, Gwalia Cottage will make an ideal base from which to explore spectacular Snowdonia!

The cottage sleeps up to 4 people in 2 Bedrooms: 1 Double with beams and a feature fireplace, and 1 Twin which has it's own shower area! The upstairs bathroom has a bath, separate shower cubicle, wash basin and toilet.

The living room has a feature fireplace, beams, 2 leather sofa's, WI-FI throughout, 32" TV. DVD player and a selection of DVD's to browse through. The cottage has HIVE central heating and is double glazed throughout.

The kitchen/dinner has everything you need including: oven, washing machine, tumble dryer, dishwasher, microwave, fridge/freezer, kettle and a toaster. The seating area takes in lovely views of the mountains and the famous slate quarries.

The steep garden at Gwalia has been imaginatively landscaped with trees and shrubs. Halfway up there is a seating area which takes in the wonderful mountain views! There is also a vey useful outhouse for storing your bikes safely and a outside tap for washing down those muddy wheels......or muddy dogs!!

2 dogs are welcome at our cottage. All we ask is that you bring their own bedding, towels and bowls. Please restrict them to downstairs only and please do not leave your pet unsupervised and could you please clean up after them on your departure.

Changeover days are Saturday to Saturday. Arrival time: 4.00pm. Departure: 10.00am. Shorter breaks can be considered during quieter periods.

All bed linen is provided but please bring your own towels. T-towels are provided.

Children are very welcome at Gwalia but due to the steep steps leading to the garden, we think that it might be unsuitable for children under the age of 5 years and for people with limited mobility.

Please note: There is on road parking. You can usually park quite easily opposite the cottage or there is parking further along the street. Please take care when crossing. The cottage is on a quite stretch of the A470, but we do have double glazing which minimises what road noise there is. Night time traffic noise is very low.

There are 5 steps leading up to the front door, directly from the road.However, the cottage is set back from the road by a small enclosed garden.
