Sparrows, Blaenau FfestiniogRef: 5008
STS Grade 4
Sparrows is situated in an elevated position at the head of the Ffestiniog Valley in Snowdonia and yet only 12miles from the Cambrian coastline as seen in the distance. More dramatic scenery cannot be found anywhere. High craggy peaks with evidence of slate quarrying through the ages here and there. This is one of 6 small terraced stone cottages a few minutes walk from the High Street at the historic quarrying town of Blaenau Ffestiniog. Recently prepared by it's proud owner where every thought has been given to offer a comfortable place to stay for her guests. All facilities provided including washing machine and tumble dryer for those wanting a longer holiday in Snowdonia. There are shops and eating places in the town and within half a mile is the old Llechwedd Quarry where trips underground show the work involved in 'Roofing the world' with slate, Zip World: Titan and Bounce Below are also just outside the town as is Antur Stiniog the wild off road cycling centre. If adrenaline isn't your thing then touring the area and visiting National Trust's Bodnant Garden's (23 mls) Portmeirion Village (11 mls) or a few castles might be the thing to do. You can even catch the Ffestiniog Railway's steam train down to Porthmadog harbour (12 mls) and visit the sandy beaches or catch a train to Llandudno (32 mls) and visit this Victorian Seaside resort for a change of culture. What ever you choose - if it's sea or mountain you won't be far from anywhere here.
