STS Grade 3+

This is a cosy annexe to a grade II listed 500yr old stone farmhouse (our ref 5150) recently renovated with a mezzenine bedroom above the living room in Cwm Teigl, 2ml from Llan Ffestiniog. Access is along a gated (3) 0.5 ml mountain trackway as it steadily climbs towards Manod mountain. Country lovers will enjoy this location to walk the ancient footpaths to Cwm Penmachno or the Crimea pass surrounded by 'Wild Wales'. Comfortable open plan design with a contemporary fitted kitchen and shower room. Stunning views of unspoiled the surrounding countryside and Snowdonia from the doorstep and views down the valley towards the coast. Close to hand is Llan Ffestiniog which has an inn and shop, Blaenau Ffestiniog (5ml) has the Ffestiniog Railway station, Zip Wire and Bounce Below, small super market and shops. The wonderful Black Rock Sands (12ml) is the closest sandy beach where you can drive straight onto the 3mls of sands and dunes. If you can tempt yourself off the mountain then visit Harlech Castle (14ml), Swallow Falls and Betws y Coed (15ml) in the Conwy valley, Coed y Brenin mountian bike centre (16ml) and Llanberis at the foot of Snowdon (30ml).

Guests Comments:
E & A (Oct, 2015): "We've had a lovely wek here - such a lovely place to stay in beautiful surroundings. We felt at home as soon as we arrived and have agreed this is the best place in North Wales we have ever stayed (and Alex has been staying here for over 10 years!) Thank you so much - we will be back!"
C (Jan, 2016): "The weather's been terrible everywhere so it can't be helped. We still had a good time and it was a lovely break so we don't feel we lost out. I bumped into the housekeeper the other day and she helped us when the TV stopped working, she is lovely and very helpful so thought it was worth a mention. Look forward to visiting again and thanks for everything."

Visit Wales Comments (October, 2016):
"Set in a very rural location one of three traditional properties where guests are advised that owing to the approach road a 4x4 vehicle for access might be prudent at certain times of the year. The properties have benefitted from the works by the owner."
