Blaenau Ffestiniog

Blaenau Ffestiniog, at the very heart of Snowdonia, is a traditional Welsh town that sits surrounded by the majesty of the National Park. The town is famous for its slate mines and scenic railway, as well as, of course, its fantastic position amongst the natural beauty of the Welsh mountains.

Known as ‘the town that roofed the world’, it’s now a picturesque tribute to its past, with its unchanged cottages and slate buildings located amongst a dramatic mountain backdrop. A friendly small town with plenty on offer for visitors, the town has recently been revitalised with new shops and places to eat, and there is a popular art gallery in the centre.

For days out, the Llechwedd Slate Caverns offer visitors the chance to travel underground into the old mine shafts for an exciting and educational experience for the whole family. The Ffestiniog Railway, built in 1879, is one of the most scenic railway lines in Britain. It runs to the coast to Porthmadog, taking in waterfalls, lakes, mountain ranges and the meadows of the Snowdonia National Park. There are a wealth of outdoor activities to choose from with walking trails, cycle routes, caving and climbing all in the nearby vicinity.

Discover the cycle trail that passes by Tanygrisiau Lake and the mountain bike route at Llechwedd that was especially built in 2012. If you prefer walking there are lots of low level and high level walking trails across unspoilt and beautifully scenic terrains.

Staying in one of the cottages in Blaenau Ffestiniog; the ideal way to explore the wonderful natural beauty of Snowdonia for an unforgettable cottage holiday in Wales.
