    Gorffwys-Y-Milwr (Soldier’s Rest) is a restored, traditional, end-terraced cottage, ideally situated in the former slate quarrying town of Blaenau Ffestiniog, in the heart of Snowdonia. The property is within walking distance of exciting adventures at Zip World Titan, where you can fly over a slate quarry on Europe’s longest zipwire, Bounce Below, where you can leap on trampoline nets in the old slate cavern, and the Antur Stiniog mountain bike trail centre, where you can take the fast route down the mountains.
    For a more leisurely way of seeing the area, the Ffestiniog Railway offers a scenic journey by narrow gauge steam train, down to the coast at Porthmadog, or you can break your journey at Tan y Bwlch for a stroll around the lovely Llyn Mair. Nearby, the pretty villages of Dolwyddelan, with its historic castle, and Betws-y-Coed, the ‘Gateway to Snowdonia’, are waiting to be explored. Children will love listening for the whistle of the steam train as it comes into the village, which can be heard from the cottage.
    The bright, airy kitchen is well stocked with a variety of cooking equipment, making preparing the family meals, a pleasure, with views across the valley and a comfortable dining area. The cosy living room has ample seating for everyone to unwind after a day of adventures. With a variety of relaxing activities, there will be something for everyone to enjoy.

    Very comfortable cottage at a convenient location. Host were great and very easy to communicate with. It's a stone throw away from slate cavern, for the rainy days! About 30 minutes drive to Llanberis for a hike or the train up Snowdon. Had a great time here, the cottage felt very home like with plenty of toys to keep my 5 year old busy. Would definitely recommend it and we will come back as well. Thanks to Ben and Ruth.

    This accommodation was perfect for our group. Its location is close to Antur Stiniog for some great downhill MTB and it also has a very secure bike store in the basement (ideal when you have ££££'s of MTB). 45 mins from Snowdon and Velocity 2. We shared a few drinks in Hostel Cellb with the locals who where accommodating (£16 for 5 drinks, bargain), and used the kebab house a couple of times (kebabs where good, pizza looked good, garlic bread looked not so good). Loved North Wales and will definately bring my family next time.

    Cottage is lovely, very querky, in the fact you have to go down stairs to a lower level to reach the back garden. Plenty of space for our family of six and one dog, to not get under each others feet. Lovely walks in the local area, train station close for adventures further afield. We had a great time and would definitely go back.
