Not far from the centre of the Snowdonia National Park, this property has two bedrooms and has been renovated lovingly, retaining many of the cottage’s original features. Originally built from stone in the 1700s, this cottage has been sympathetically restored to retain much of its original charm such as exposed beams and stone walls. During the winter months the superb fireplace houses a wood-burning stove that can transform the cottage into a cosy little snug. For the hazy summer months, there is a rear garden from which you can enjoy a glass of wine and watch the sun set over the distant mountains.
Amenities: Oil central heatin...g with woodburner. Electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge, washer/dryer, TV with Freeview, DVD, CD. Fuel, power and starter pack for woodburner inc. in rent. Bed linen and towels inc. in rent. Off road parking for 1 car. Garden with patio, small lawn, furniture and mountain views. Two well-behaved dogs welcome. Sorry, no smoking. Shop 1.5 miles, pub 10 mins walk. Note: There are 13 steep steps to the rear patio/lawn level, so the garden is not suitable for the infirm or young, unsupervised children.
Region: Famous for its choirs, stunning mountain ranges and beautiful valleys, this wonderful country has something for everyone. From Snowdonia in North Wales to the Brecon Beacons and the Pembrokeshire Coast in the South.
Town: The mountain of Manod Mawr has a long history of slate mining and some of the underground chambers were used to house National Treasures during the 2nd World War. Manod village is located in a natural bowl between the Manod and Moelwyn mountains and is well served by a number of shops and pubs, which are used to serving travellers on their way to Betws-Y-Coed, the ‘Gateway to Snowdonia’ and the village at the base of Mount Snowdon. Many of Manod’s old slate quarries are now tourist attractions, giving fascinating insights into the work undertaken by slate miners in years gone by. The nearby Ffestioniog Railway takes passengers on stunning scenic routes through the North Wales countryside. There are many good walks and cycle-trails to be found in the area and Manod’s location provides easy access to other attractions such as Portmeirion - the Italian-designed village used as the setting for the cult TV-show, ‘The Prisoner’ – and the white-water rafting opportunities provided at Bala.

Left on 12/02/2011 for a stay in September 2011 | Love long hikes
Owner was very helpful and emailed loads of info about places to eat where we could take our dog. The cottage suited us perfectly. We went hiking everyday and it was lovely to come back to the nice warm comfortable cottage at the end of the day. Our dog enjoyed her stay as it was nice to be able to just walk behind the cottage or across the road for a morning run! The traffic was abit noisy at times as we're country folk and not used to that! Only 5 minutes to the co-op in Bleneau which was really good and next door to the chip shop which was excellent. Only minor criticism was the lack of a washing line in the little garden. Highly recommend for a couple.

Cozy cottage in Manod
Left on 12/18/2009 for a stay in June 2009 | Lars Grangaard Olesen
We stayed in Manod for 2 weeks and had a lovely time. The cottage is very cozy with a lovely back garden and scenic mountainsviews and green pastures with lots of sheeps. The cottage is situated close to Snowdonia Nationalpark and there are lots of hikingtrails just outside the cottage. The owner and caretaker are very nice and helpful.
We can recomend the cottage for your next holiday if you want to experience the best of Wales.
