Dating from the 1840s, Bron View Cottage nestles in the centre of the historic slate town of Blaenau Ffestiniog, enjoying glorious views of the Manod mountain range and viaduct. Originally built for the railway workers who constructed the world-famous Ffestiniog railway, this delightful stone cottage retains original features, within a spacious and contemporary interior.
The town of Blaenau Ffestiniog is renowned for its former slate quarries and has become known as the ‘slate capital of Wales’. Guests here will find themselves surrounded by spectacular countryside with stunning views. Located within the heart of the Snowdonia National Park, Blaenau Ffestiniog is also the terminus of the famous Ffestiniog Railway, which winds its way through spectacular scenery to the coastal town of Porthmadog. Hop off the train at Minffordd Station and visit the Italianate village of Portmeirion, designed by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis. Nearby is the lovely beach at Black Rock Sands, and the peaceful Llyn Peninsula. Just waiting to be explored are the pretty villages of Dolwyddelan, with its castle, Betws-y-Coed and nearby Swallow Falls.
The Snowdonia National Park offers a range of activities including fantastic walks for all abilities, fishing, kayaking and horse riding. The National White Water Rafting Centre is only a 40-minute drive away. The old Llechwedd Slate Quarry has been turned into an adrenaline junkie’s delight, with Zipworld Titan, the largest zip zone in the world, Bounce Below where you can bounce on underground trampolines, or take on the Stiniog Downhill Mountain Bike Trail. Alternatively, take a more leisurely bike ride along Tanygrisiau Lake.
