I stayed here with my sister and two teenagers for the week and the house was perfect. We were a bit wary of booking a terrace in case it felt a bit cramped but this cottage is very deceptive. The whole property is spacious and well proportioned. The lounge/diner and kitchen had plenty of room. There is an extra sofa and chair in the 'diner' end which were nice for reading or relaxing if the kids were watching the telly. The bedrooms upstairs - and two bathrooms - were also large and airy. And a lovely big landing, which was useful for our cases and laundry pile. The outdoor space was great too with an extra loo, room to hang wet coats and boots and a picnic table. There is off street parking round the back (although the turn is a little tight) but we were able to park in front every day. The views over to Blaenau Ffestiniog were stunning and the street is a dead end so no through traffic, there are only houses on one side so you look out onto a field and yet you are only 2 minutes walk up to the pub and another 2 to the village shop. The village is well positioned for easy access all around Snowdonia and North Wales.

This was a return visit to Llan Ffestiniog, having previously stayed at the also excellent 1 Bryn Gwyn round the corner. This cottage is definitely tardis like. It looks like a small stone cottage on arrival, but inside there is loads of room. There was more than enough space for the three of us - the place could easily accommodate 6 comfortably. It's warm and well equipped. There are great views of this beautiful area - mountains can be seen from every window. We love the area - it's stunning scenically and not too busy. Particular highlights this time were Harlech castle and beach, and the lovely walk on the disused railway with it's amazing viaduct, near Trawsfynedd. This is great walking and cycling country. We like the local walks, eg to the nearby waterfalls/nature reserve, as well as the mountain walking eg Cnicht and Cadair Idris. There is so much to do - we have only scratched the surface! For cycling we like the stunning cycle trail along the Mawddach estuary and the cycle trails at Coed-y-brenin forest. Llan Ffestiniog is a charming small village with a friendly pub and well stocked village shop. It's near to Blaenau with it's slate mine ( really fascinating - we visited on a rainy day) and zip wires which we have yet to try. We had a very enjoyable time here and will definitely be back. Many thanks.

Surprisingly spacious cottage in a wonderful location in the village of Llan Ffestiniog. Village pub was just a minute or so walk away and there is a small post office and very well stocked shop in the village too. The cottage itself was modern, whilst maintaining the character of a country cottage. It was clean, well equipped and would be ideal for couples, families with children or a small group of friends. The only thing it lacked was a proper garden - it was really just a slabbed yard but did have a picnic bench. Still very pleasant to sit out in (if you are lucky with the weather), but would be worth taking your own deckchair. The location is wonderful and from the cottage you have wonderful views of the Moelwyn mountains. There is plenty of walking from the doorstep (not flat though!) and a number of lovely waterfalls in the vicinity which are well worth a stroll to. Further afield you are within a 30 minute or so drive of almost every mountain in North Wales. It is an easy to drive to Snowdon, Cadair Idris, Tryfan etc, but if you are after some less trodden paths I would recommend Cnicht, Moel Siabod or the Rhinogs which are all within just a handful of miles from the cottage. If walking is not your thing there are a multitude of other things to do in the area and plenty of leaflets are provided in the cottage to help you decide. Overall I had a wonderful time and would not hesitate to return.
