Located in the village of Llan Ffestiniog in the magnificent Snowdonia National Park, this Welsh cottage has one double bedroom.

Hen Aelwyd Yr Urdd was originally built over a hundred years ago and has been sympathetically converted to offer accommodation for up to 2 people; a haven for couples looking to get away from it all. Much of its original character has been preserved through exposed beams, an inglenook fireplace and an open fire. There is parking available, and some local amenities are only a short walk away. The cottage is perfectly situated for access to other attractions, such as the North-West Welsh coast and nearby caves.


Best cottage we have ever stayed in. It was very comfortable and cosy with the fire in the evening. Lots of information provided about the area, instructions about how to use everything and stocked with everything you might need.
Mrs Day

This is the second time I have stayed at this cottage and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who has dogs. I am looking forward to going back next year.
Mr Feetham

What can I say? To start with, Snowdonia is a stunning area and the cottage was lovely. On arrival it was very clean and there was a bottle of wine and even some sweet if we had some kids knocking on the door, hence Halloween. It is a very peaceful area and the cottage, with its wood burning fireplace, was warm and cosy. It is obvious the owners do put their heart and soul in making it the perfect place to stay at.

It was well equipped, comfortable, well located, and the extras from the owner were excellent.
Mrs Vidal

Absolutely beautiful. A lovely cottage with so many welcome treats on our arrival we were truly surprised. In wonderful surroundings, highly recommended. The cottage is beautiful, well stocked, ideally located & simply put - just everything!
