Electricity and gas is included, and from 100% renewable sources. There is a good pub with a very warm welcome within short walking distance of the cottage, called the Manod Hotel; it is dog friendly and has free WiFi! A little further but still within walking distance, good food to be had at CellB, the Meirion,De Niros, Ty Gorsaf (The Station House), a great Indian restaurant and more. Blaenau Ffestiniog with all its history, is central to the whole of Snowdonia with a bewildering variety of activities and places to visit, all within an easy drive. After a hard day enjoying yourself, refreshments can be had just 2 minutes' walk up the road in The Manod Hotel (really a friendly pub!) serving drinks, coffee, snacks and more, including a real ale or two! Other places in Blaenau serve food, including the Meirion, Ty Gorsaf (the station house) and a quality Indian restaurant. The town itself is home to the Ffestiniog Railway and the Llechwedd Slate Caverns. It has a supermarket, pubs, cafes, takeaways and a number of other useful shops. There are many attractions to enjoy - soft sandy beaches from the smallest coves to sweeping bays; majestic lush valleys, and estuaries where you may spot an osprey fishing; many romantic and historic castles; the craftwork of woollen mills and potteries; copper and slate mines with dramatic tours; towns to visit include Betws-y-Coed, Beddgelert, Caernarfon, Dolgellau and the famous Italianate creation of Portmeirion! For walkers there is such a choice. Snowdonia's mountains are world famous including the summit itself, and some with special features such as the Castle of the Wind on top of the Glyders range. The Manod Mawr trail starts virtually from the doorstep; there are local walks within a few minutes' drive, where we particularly recommend the Cwmorthin valley leading to the high Moelwyn mountains with views of Snowdon; and there is a fragment of the 'Celtic rain-forest' in the rich moist valley of Cwm Cynfal. For mountain bikers, there are four bike lock points at the rear of the house. World class mountain trails are continuously being developed by Antur Stiniog right by the side of Blaenau.More

Just got back from a few days away in this cottage. It's exactly as described, compact and very cosy. We loved the open fire and big aga cooker to cook big breakfasts on. The owner Allen was very nice and came round the first evening...More

About the neighbourhood
Blaenau Ffestiniog is the starting point of the beautiful Ffestiniog steam railway, which links with the Welsh Highland steam railway in Porthmadog to run through Beddgelert and past Snowdon itself - you might even hear the whistle from the Cottage! Blaenau is a small mountain town, but has pub and hotel foods, as well as takeaways. There are a growing number of activities to suit many tastes based in the town, ranging from the classic tourist attractions of the newly updated (2014) Llechwedd Slate Caverns, and the gorgeous Ffestiniog Railway to fun for the little ones at the Bridge Cafe, and the world class mountain bike courses by Antur Stiniog for the active.
Getting around
Blaenau Ffestiniog is served by mainline trains and buses to Porthmadog, Betws-y-Coed, Llandudno and beyond. All stops within walking distance of Ty Isaf. Roads take you to coast, valleys and mountains!
