This original mill cottage near Maentwrog is situated next to a waterfall and stream on the Porthmadog road and only 5 miles from Blaenau Ffestiniog, the home of Zip World: Titan & Bounce Below. Originally part of the Tan y Bwlch Country estate it is now a 'quaint' little stone cottage near the Oakley Arms just over half a mile village from the conservation village of Maentwrog. The cottage is circa 1780 has been traditionally prepared with slate flooring and exposed ceiling beams throughout the ground floor and a quirky wooden staircase to the first floor. The lounge which has a wood-burning stove for cosy nights is a couple of steps lower than the dining room and kitchen. Upstairs there is both a bathroom and a shower room and two bedrooms. It is attached to the original mill alongside the A487. Attractive valley views can be appreciated from the raised patio where there is some garden furniture. Maentwrog village situated on the edge of the river Dwyryd. The village of Maentwrog has a mythological past; it is 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 on the doorstep and the famous 'Grapes' within walking distance. The woods of Tan y Bwlch are just behind the cottage as is the Ffestiniog Railway steam train station of Tan y Bwlch.
