Glan yr Afon Holiday Cottage

Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Tanygrisiau, Blaenau Ffestiniog, Snowdonia National Park, North Wales, Wales
Nostalgia of traditional smoke & steam pervades when the famous Ffestiniog Steam railway runs past the rear of the cottage. Glan yr Afon is a delightful 18th century miner's cottage which retains character and features from a bygone era, such as an impressive inglenook fireplace housing a multi fuel wood burring stove and original exposed beams in the lounge. The cottage overlooks a small mountain river, and open countryside scenery to the front with a backdrop of craggy hillside behind.

Glan yr Afon exudes a warm & friendly welcome and is presented to a good standard with special attention to detail to ensure a comfortable stay is had by all.

Standing amongst some dramatic scenery and enjoying views of countryside and hills encompassing the Manod mountains at the front with a craggy backdrop of the Moelwyn mountains which...

About the neighbourhood
The cottage stands amongst some dramatic scenery and enjoys views of countryside and hillside encompassing the Manod mountains at the front with a craggy backdrop of the Moelwyn mountains which protect the village from much of the wind from northerly gales in the winter and give the village a pleasant southerly aspect with relatively mild weather considering how high it is located in Snowdonia. The cottage is situated in a terrace of about 12 cottages and is located in a quiet position away from the main road and passing traffic, there are parking bays opposite which are for the use of the terrace, so parking should not be a problem, but is on a first come, first served basis.

Situated in the village of Tanygrisiau, meaning Under the Steps, a close neighbour of the larger town, better kno...
