The cottage has been carefully prepared with comfort in mind.

The cottage is in the shadow of Pant yr Ynn mill and its large waterfall. Blaenau Ffestiniog town is at the head of the valley about one mile away with shops, including an artisan baker, other independent shops and two small supermarkets, cafes and restaurants. Visitors can enjoy the mountain biking centre, caving, Zip World’s Bounce Below and Titan zip line.

ACCESS STATEMENT: This cottage is on 3 different levels on the Ground Floor (Living Room, Kitchen & Bathroom, Laundry Room & Bedroom 3 with single bed) and 1 level on the 1st Floor (Bedroom 1 with double bed & Bedroom 2 with small double bed).

When first arriving it is best to park on the road near the street light outside the cottage. (If you arrive in good time you should find a space.). Access to the cottage is up a few steps (with a hand-rail), through an iron gate, up a sloping path (with hand-rail) and up one step to the front door. It might be advisable to bring a torch in order to see key safe which is under the window ledge on the left of the front door.

If you wish to use the off-road parking later, it is at the back of the cottage via a service road. The parking space is opposite the back gate which is bolted on the inside, top right. There is a steep step (handle on gate-post) to a slate path and a few slate steps. The slate can be slippery but there is a handrail and security light which will come on as one approaches the back door. The back garden is only considered suitable for very young children when supervised.

The lounge, kitchen, bathroom and single bedroom are on the ground floor. There are two steps from the lounge to the kitchen and one from the single bedroom to the bathroom and breakfast area. An outside door leads down one step from the single bedroom to the front garden. The stairs from the lounge to the upstairs bedrooms are fairly steep but there is a light and handrail.
