STS Grade 3+ 

This is a sweet little cottage in a peaceful wooded valley above the traditional village of Maentwrog. The cottage has been attractively prepared with a warm and welcoming lounge which has a large inglenook fireplace housing a log fire. It is one of two attached cottages situated up a short well maintained drive 500m from the village centre. Attractive valley views can be appreciated from the gardens of the cottage especially in the upper rear garden where there are some garden furniture. Maentwrog village is situated on the edge of the river Dwyryd and has a mythalogical past; it's mentioned in the 'Mabinogion' (a book filled with traditional Welsh stories). You can judge for yourself whether the stories are true but the stone (in Welsh, 'Maen') thrown by the giant 'Twrog' can be seen in the village church grounds. There is a homely village inn and is within walking distance (15 min) and the Ffestiniog steam train station of Tan y Bwlch. Porthmadog town is only 9 miles for shops, leisure centre, beaches etc. Harlech (9 miles) for an impressive castle, antique shops and amazing views of Snowdonia. It's also only a 10 minute drive from Zip World's Titan ride and Bounce Below in Ffestiniog and Antur Stiniog's downhill mountain bike trails. The cottage is also just 15 minutes from the mountain bike centre in Coed y Brenin.
