From the owner

Llan Ffestiniog sits within the Moelwyn mountain range, close to award winning beaches which makes the cottage a fantastic base for those wishing to explore the natural beauty of this unspoilt region of Wales. Both the habour town of Porthmadog and historic Harlech, with its castle and beautiful beach are within 20 mins drive. The village shop, post office and pub are all within 10 mins walk. The cottage has a small porch leading to the lounge with kitchenette and breakfast bar. The stairs lead off to the landing which overlooks the south facing small terrace. Doors lead off to the bedrooms (one double, one with bunks) and large shower room.

The cottage is heated by a modern log burning fire which takes pride of place in the original 200 year old inglenoock fireplace which keeps the cottage cosy and warm throughout even the coldest winter months. There are additional electric convector heaters in each room if needed. The cottage is strictly no smoking/no pets.

Owner's reply:
Thank you for your very detailed review which highlights many charms of our 200 year old cottage. I'm glad you enjoyed your holiday. Yes, there is no internet. This is deliberate as many guests tell us they prefer to ‘switch off’ whilst on holiday. However, there is a fantastic 4G network reception, if needed. Many guests prefer to eat out whilst on holiday but we usually make meals using the 4 ringed hob, microwave and small oven. I wonder how many clothes you took for an outdoor holiday which could not be stored in the bedroom drawers? Did you make use of the porch for hanging coats, boots etc? Water pressure in remote parts of the country varies during peak times which is why there is a power shower. As you point out, there is plenty of hot water which can be controlled using the timer. I’m glad you’d recommend us to ‘outdoorsy’ people. By this I assume you mean guests who enjoy unspoilt, remote areas of outstanding natural beauty, who recognise good value for money self-catering accommodation. At least you now realise that being a quarryman wouldn’t have suited! Best wishes Ian
