Blaenau Ffestiniog, Snowdonia National Park, North Wales, Wales
A cosy end of terrace cottage in a quiet residential area. This former miner’s cottage is situated in the popular mining town of Blaenau Ffestiniog, in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park, North Wales. The perfect place for a quiet get-away or an outdoor adventure.

Through the porch (great for muddy boots) you will find a comfortable, open-plan living space, with sofas, a dining area and bespoke oak kitchen. There is also a wood burning stove for those nippier nights.

Through the kitchen is a lobby, with washing machine, and a well-appointed bathroom where you will find a small bath and shower over.

Up the narrow, steep, staircase, a typical feature of the miner’s cottages, you will find the two bedrooms; a double where you can wake up to mountain views and a spacious single.

Outside there are two terraced areas from which you...

Thank you for your lovely review. I have taken on board your comments about the sofas. I am looking into alternative seating arrangements. As you know, I am rather constricted in my choices by space. How wonderful to see the harvest moon. It is a...More

About the neighbourhood
Blaenau Ffestiniog, is located in the middle of the Snowdonia National Park. Known as the town that roofed the world, it still bears the scars of its slate industrial history. Every piece of slate you see has been touched by hand. A great central location for all that North Wales has to offer. Visitors are encouraged to support small independent businesses in the town eg. our butcher, baker, cinema, restaurants, cafes, pubs, various gift shops, etc. Walking from the house, or within a short drive, there are lakes, mountains, waterfalls, footpaths including the Snowdonia Slate Trail. Tourist Information is available at Antur Stiniog in the town centre. Locals are mostly Welsh speaking and are approachable, friendly and welcoming.
Getting around
The mainline train station is about 10 minutes walk from the cottage. The train rom Blaenau Ffestiniog travels to and fro to Llandudno, stopping at Llandudno Junction (with links to major cities such as Liverpool, Manchester and London) via the Conwy Valley Scenic Route. Many people like to use the train to visit Betws-y-Coed.

There is also the famous narrow gauge Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railway which travels though spectacular scenery to Porthmadog and beyond to Caernarfon.

There is also a reasonable bus service to take to you local places of interest.
