Gorffwys-Y-Milwr (Soldier’s Rest) is a restored, traditional, end-terraced cottage, ideally situated in the former slate quarrying town of Blaenau Ffestiniog, in the heart of Snowdonia. The property is within walking distance of exciting adventures at Zip World Titan, where you can fly over a slate quarry on Europe’s longest zipwire, Bounce Below, where you can leap on trampoline nets in the old slate cavern, and the Antur Stiniog mountain bike trail centre, where you can take the fast route down the mountains.
For a more leisurely way of seeing the area, the Ffestiniog Railway offers a scenic journey by narrow gauge steam train, down to the coast at Porthmadog, or you can break your journey at Tan y Bwlch for a stroll around the lovely Llyn Mair. Nearby, the pretty villages of Dolwyddelan, with its historic castle, and Betws-y-Coed, the ‘Gateway to Snowdonia’, are waiting to be explored. Children will love listening for the whistle of the steam train as it comes into the village, which can be heard from the cottage.
The bright, airy kitchen is well stocked with a variety of cooking equipment, making preparing the family meals, a pleasure, with views across the valley and a comfortable dining area. The cosy living room has ample seating for everyone to unwind after a day of adventures. With a variety of relaxing activities, there will be something for everyone to enjoy.
