Woodland Cottage, Ffestiniog ValleyRef: 5003
This is a rare opportunity to stay in a charming detached stone cottage in secluded woodland surrounded by a managed working forest of 150 hectares of its own land. Situated in an elevated position 5.5mls by road from Maentwrog village, it enjoys magnificent mountain and valley views of Snowdonia from its picture windows. It is very comfortably furnished and a log fire gives it a warm and cosy atmosphere. Ample walks from the doorstep - this is a naturalist or artists' dream location. 40 min walk to Maentwrog and 'The Grapes', 12miles to Porthmadog and Harlech to lovely sandy beaches, golf courses, steam train rides, shops. There are excellent mountain bike trails through the forest at Coed y Brenin. Situated separately in its own grounds and own drive is 'The Woodland Barn' (our ref 5003B) which is a little one bedroomed cottage available for rent. The Barn is 100m away from the Cottage set lower down the hill. Both properties are private from one another.

Customer Feedback, Mr R (July 2019): "Hi, just thought you might like to know, simply to update your literature, but we can get a very decent phone signal here, at least on 3 and Vodafone, both 3g and 4g. Would be useful for future visitors as I would have brought a laptop with me if I thought there would be a chance of a connection in the cottage."
