Fabulous location. Moelwyn cottage is perfectly placed to explore the heart of Snowdonia. It is a cosy, fully renovated Welsh miner's cottage. It has an open plan living space whilst preserving its original features including exposed stonework, beams and inglenook fireplace. It is situated overlooking the stream on the edge of the village in a very quiet location with no passing traffic, with lovely views to the front and in the lee of the dramatic Moelwyn mountains. There are fabulous walks straight from the door and so much to do in the local area including mountain biking and zip wire activities. Tanygrisiau lake, lakeside cafe and the station for the renowned narrow gauge Ffestiniogg steam railway are just a 2 minute walk. There is a pub further up in the village, all day-to-day ame...Fabulous location. Moelwyn cottage is perfectly placed to explore the heart of Snowdonia.
