Steep stairs to first floor 2 bedrooms 1 double with sloping ceiling step down to 1 twin. Bathroom with shower attachment toilet low doorway and sloping ceiling. \nGas CH elec bed linen and towels inc. 29 Freesat TVDVD. Elec cooker. Mwave. Washerdryer. Wi-Fi. Parking 1 car. No smoking. Please note This property has a security deposit of £50.\nLess than a ten minute walk from Zip World Bounce Below The Llechwedd Slate Caverns and the FFestiniog Railway but located in the quiet area of Rhiwbryfdir lies this historic semi-detached holiday property that dates back to at least 1834. With its originality and unusualness it plays an important part in the heritage of Blaenau FFestiniog. This quirky cottage is retains a lot of its original features including low doorways and sloping ceilings and makes a great family base for short breaks exploring the local area and the added extra of mountain walks from the doorstep. Just up the road are the Llechwedd Slate Caverns home to the longest zipwire course in the world the Stiniog Downhill Mountain Bike Trail and Bounce Below where you can jump on trampoline nets underground. Zip World Caverns the world’s largest fully underground zip line course is an ideal family day out. Blaenau Ffestiniog is the terminus of the famous Ffestiniog Railway which winds its way through spectacular scenery to the coastal town of Porthmadog. Hop off the train at Minffordd station and visit the Italianate village of Portmeirion. Nearby is the lovely beach at Black Road Sands whilst the peaceful Llyn Peninsula or the pretty villages of Dolwyddelan and Betws-y-Coed are just waiting to be explored. A short drive away is Snowdon and Surf Snowdonia a surfing and water park at Dolgarrog. Shop pub and restaurants ½ mile.\n" https://img.chooseacottage.co.uk/Property/893/840/893709.jpg 30941

    Nice cottage, good location for exploring Snowdonia and Anglesey. Some useful shops around and not far from the train station.

    A perfect base to enjoy the area. Zip world is just up the road, Snowdon is about 45 minutes away. Lovely walks on the doorstep, food shops and takeaways locally too. Would definitely visit again and the hosts were lovely to deal with.

    A very cosy comfy cottage , once you remember to duck on all doorways.

    It was a fabulous week! Overall a very nice cottage, clean, quiet and very cozy. It sports a nice kitchen (included appliances more than suit the holidays), cozy living room with a collection of books and movies, and sleeping rooms are more than enough (albeit one of them is a bit colder than the other), with a few toys available under one of the single beds, so entertainment is well covered for a rainy day. Take care of your head as the doorframes (as mentioned in cottage description) are rather low (all properly signaled), a feature that also extends to the bathtub, making it more suited for baths instead of showers. Car park outside is easy to use and close to the cottage itself. The cottage owner provides a really rich folder describing the cottage's history, nearby services and amenities as well as local area activities (from walks to historical activities) and commerce (food places, shopping needs and so on), a great source for scheduling your time there. We will definitely try to come back :)
