An ideal area for sports enthusiasts
This traditional, two-storey, Welsh quarryman’s cottage is situated in the quiet residential area of Rhiwbryfdir on the fringe of the unique historical slate town of Blaenau Ffestiniog. It is within walking distance to the centre of town and the Ffestiniog Steam Railway, in addition to the famous Llechwedd Slate Caverns, the Antur Stiniog Mountain Bike Centre and Zip World (the longest zip line course in the world!), and is in close proximity to Dolwyddelan Castle, Betws-y-Coed and Mount Snowdon. The property benefits from an outhouse, with a fully kitted drying/boot room with tumble dryer and drying racks, as well as bike storage. There is also a separate traditional ’Ty Bach’ - outside toilet. It also boasts a fully enclosed slated garden with flower beds and a seated BBQ area to enjoy the mountain views, including the mountain bike hill and zip wires in the distance. A perfect holiday base for walkers and climbers with numerous paths, for all levels, direct from the cottage - exploring the town to the surrounding mountains, lakes, moors and abandoned slate mines, high in the Moelwyn Hills. This cosy holiday cottage, located in the centre of the Snowdonia National Park, offers an ideal base for discovering the rugged natural beauty of the park, along with its villages and abundance of wildlife and fauna. For outdoor enthusiasts looking for a bit extra - caving, white water rafting, canoeing, rock climbing, horse riding, bird watching, fishing and even train spotting are available. The National White Water Rafting Centre is a 15-minute drive away towards Bala and the Tanygrisiau Slabs are 5 minutes down the road. It is within easy driving distance to Portmerion, Portmadog, the west Wales coastline with its sandy beaches, the Llyn peninsula and a high concentration of castles throughout North West Wales.
