Description

Enjoying unrivalled views of the Manod Mountains and imposing Victorian viaduct, this delightful stone cottage retains original features within its spacious and contemporary interior. Dating from the 1840s, Bron View cottage was first built for the railway workers who constructed the world-famous Ffestiniog Railway. Being centrally located in Snowdonia, this cottage provides the perfect base for families, couples, or friends who wish to explore, be active or simply relax and get away from it all.
The cottage is warm and welcoming, it’s a real home away from home, comfortably furnished, with its gorgeous period fireplace and open fire in the lounge. Outside there is an enclosed, landscaped, slated garden where you can sit on the terrace, enjoy the mountain views while sipping a cup of tea or a glass of wine after an active day.
The cottage is a couple of minutes’ drive from the famous Llechwedd Slate Cavern Complex which has been turned into a thrill seekers’ delight, with Zipworld Titan offering zip rides with 8,000m of cables, Bounce Below where you can bounce on underground trampolines, or take on the Antur Stiniog Downhill Mountain Bike Trail.
