Lovely Location. Moelwyn Cottage is a cosy Welsh miner's cottage in the heart of Snowdonia with lots of character, in an area that offers some of the most dramatic mountain scenery in England and Wales. The cottage has been completely renovated to a very high standard to provide a lovely open plan living space whilst preserving its original character features including exposed stonework, beams and inglenook fireplace. It is situated overlooking the stream on the very edge of the village in a very quiet location with no passing traffic, with lovely views to the front and in the lee of the dramatic Moelwyn mountains. Enclosed front garden is a sun trap, enjoy a coffee or a glass of wine on our new wooden companion seat.

There are fabulous walks straight from the door and so much to do in the local area including mountain biking and zip wire activities. Tanygrisiau lake, lakeside cafe and the station for the renowned narrow gauge Ffestiniogg steam railway are just 2 minutes walk. There is a pub further up in the village, all day-to-day amenities including supermarket, pubs restaurants and leisure centre with swimming pool are available in nearby Blaenau Ffesiniogg 1.5 miles away.

The cottage is in a very central location for exploring some of the most dramatic scenery within Snowdonia, at the same time being just a short drive from the coast and some of the most beautiful beaches of North Wales.
