STS Grade 3 

A Grade II* listed 500yr old stone farmhouse and cottage full of rustic charm on the slopes of Manod mountain, 2 miles from Llan Ffestiniog, along half a mile of mountain trackway with 3 gates. A seriously 'away-from-it-all' location for country lovers who want to walk into the hills and just lose themselves in the myriad of footpaths and discover 'Wild Wales'!
Divided into two units which can accommodate up to 7/8 guests. Both parts have an interesting open-plan layout with access to galleried bedrooms from the living room. They have a distinctive high-vaulted and heavily beamed roof space, contemporary fitted kitchen and between them there are two bathrooms. There is direct access to the shared utility room from the cottage. Magnificent unspoiled views of southern Snowdonia from the doorstep and views down the valley towards Porthmadog on the coast. There is a community run inn and shop in the village serving great ales and good food, Blaenau Ffestiniog (5 miles) has the Ffestiniog Railway station, Zip Wire and Bounce Below, small super market, cinema and shops. The wonderful Black Rock Sands (12 miles) is the closest sandy beach, where you can drive straight onto the 3 miles of sands and dunes, or discover the sandy coves at Borth y Gest village. If you can tempt yourself off the mountain then be sure to visit Harlech Castle (14 miles), Swallow Falls and Betws y Coed (15 miles) in the Conwy valley, Coed y Brenin mountain bike centre (16 miles) and Llanberis at the foot of Snowdon (30 miles).
If you need more space, 100m away is property ref 5152, which accommodates 2/3 people.

Guest Comments:
Ms B (May, 2018): Excellent  "The property we stayed in and the location was just fantastic. Waking up to gorgeous views all around, having a log burning fire in the evening and the properties were well equipped. We loved our stay here and would go back. The only slight downfall was the off road track that we had to drive our cars up to get to it."
Mr & Mrs P (Sep, 2017): "A wonderful visit - excellent property!"
M, E & C (Sep, 2017): "Thank you for the warm welcome and the opportunity to visit Cea Canol Farmhouse. The walk up waas well wirth it and the property is amazing."
The G Family (Sep, 2017): "What a wonderful break! The farmhouse has been a wonderful historic treat - reading about the history of the house story, just fantastic. We enjoyed shutting every gate as we were in such a tranquility & seclusion area. The sunrise & sunsets have been magical - not to mention the natural front and back garden! Fabulous local walks both from farmhouse and Ffestiniog too... We've enjoyed our cosy eveings too. Loved the timbers, wood and entertained ourselves muling at each notch & peg! Goregous! Thanks for sharing this wonderful home of yours!"
The E Family (Aug, 2017): "We had a wonderful time staying in this beautiful farmhouse. We loved the remoteness and having our own 'montian'. We took some great trips to Porthmadog, ZipWorld, Portmeirion and Snowdonia. Thanks again, this is a beautiful place to stay and get away from it all."

Visit Wales Comments (October, 2016):
"Set in a very rural location one of three traditional properties where guests are advised that owing to the approach road a 4x4 vehicle for access might be prudent at certain times of the year. The properties have benefitted from the works by the owner."
