Description

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.

Location description from owner

The North Wales region

Snowdonia's National Park is an area of outstanding natural beauty with breathtaking mountainous scenery and stunning golden sandy beaches. The award winning Harlech beach, with its stretch of long, golden sands is a natural lure for many guests, as is the medieval castle and antiques shops. Borth-y-Guest and Criccieth are delightful coastal village which retain much charm from yesteryear. Birdwatching and mountain biking are popular pursuits in the area – many guests explore the woodlands of Coed-y-Brenin with it’s mountain bike tracks and bird watching hideouts. Betws-y-Coed, with it’s famous raging Swallow Falls is well worth a visit. Beddgelert is a popular spot for those wishing to amble by the river, not forgetting the Welsh cream teas which are on offer from tea shops in the village. There are many paths which lead up Snowdon - the path from Beddgelert (Watkins path) is particularly popular. Mountain bikes can be hired from http://www.beddgelertbikes.co.uk/

Llan Ffestiniog

Due to its perfect location, the cottage is ideally suited for exploring the rugged terrain of this unspoilt part of Wales. Surrounding the cottage are public footpaths with running streams which criss cross fields leading to mountains beyond. The village itself is a few minutes walk: handy for emergency provisions or a relaxing evening drink and meal. The famous Ffestiniog railway starts from Blaenau Ffestiniog 3 miles away. This is ‘must do’ activity as the historical engine winds its way through breathtaking scenery until it reaches journey’s end in Portmadog 9 miles away.

“We loved it.”

Reviewed 7 Sep 2014

I was really worried about spending a summer holiday in North Wales, we normally camp, this cottage was perfect, really great value and cosy and warm, it had everything e needed, the beds were comfortable, it is so peaceful.. The cottage is small, our kids are 9 and 12 and it was just right. We spent days on the beach, in the mountains, walking the coastal path, we found beautiful waterfalls to walk to locally. We also visited Bounce Below which is 10 minutes away and completely brilliant. We would use the cottage again and recommend it to friends.

Thanks for your review. We are so pleased you had a good time and the cottage suited your family's needs. I'm really glad you made good use of the log burner and you found the beds comfy. Best wishes.

“Fab cottage, great views over Snowdonia, highly recommended”

Reviewed 29 Aug 2013

We had a great week. The cottage overlooks some fantastic views, was clean, well equipped and we highly recommend this cottage. We have stayed in Snowdonia on many occasions and this has to be one of the best weeks that we have has as yet and totally assessable for all of the local attractions and amenities.

Thanks for your super review. It means a lot to us that you have stayed in other cottages in the area but prefer ours. Very best wishes Ian

“Fantastic traditional cottage with beautiful views.”

Reviewed 4 Jun 2013

I stayed with my 3 children aged 9,6 & 4. The cottage is very compact but had everything we needed for a weeks' holiday. I wasn't planning on doing a lot of complicated cooking on holiday so the little oven was fine, all the utensils I needed where there. The whole house was spotlessly clean. There was heaps of information on things to do, a TV & DVD and a cd/ radio to keep us amused along with a selection of games. We all had a fantastic time and we were all sad to leave.

Thanks for your review, Alison. We are so pleased you had a good time and the cottage met your expectations. Thank you, too for leaving it so clean and tidy on exit. We'd love you to return one day. Best wishes. Ian

“A quaint little cottage with spectacular views!”

Reviewed 18 Jun 2012

A small rustic little cottage with breathtaking views just over the road of the hills. Not really ideal for preparing an evening meal if you are a family of four because of the small oven. The cottage was clean and tidy and had plenty of information available. We would definately book again but would love to see a proper sized oven, that, we feel, was the only downfall.

Thank you for your review. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Yes, the views are amazing from the front of the cottage which overlook mountains. We would be delighted if you returned. Best wishes, Ian

“Great Cottage, cosy and well equipped, good location for exploring the area”

Reviewed 1 May 2012

We enjoyed our family stay at the cottage very much. All rooms are well set up and we had enough space comfortably for 2 children, 7 & 11 respectively. The log burner helps creates a warm environment for family evenings in. The location enabled us to easily reach the coast and Snowdonia as well as the local attractions including the Slate Mine.

“Lovely cosy cottage in great location”

Reviewed 8 Mar 2012

Traditional welsh cottage which is extremely cosy and with lovely inviting log fire. Fabulous location to explore the Snowdonia National Park and drive the car on the beach at Porthmadoc! and lose money in the penny arcades! We had a lovely long week-end and left feeling very chilled.

“Fantastic”

Reviewed 13 Jan 2012

Lovely cottage with great facilities set in amazing scenery. Excellent value for money. The log burner made the cottage feel very cosy. I would definitely recommend
