Bwthyn Afon is a charming 18th century miner's holiday cottage. Set in a quiet location overlooking fields and nearby river & only a few minutes walk away from the Ffestiniog Steam Train railway station in Tanygrisiau. The cottage was completed renovated in 2012 and is decorated and furnished to provide delightful, homely accommodation to a high standard whilst retaining many character features such as an impressive inglenook fireplace with multi fuel stove in the lounge area, exposed beams and reproduction style panelling on the open staircase. The kitchen area is well equipped and modern in styling with spotlighting, whilst retaining a country cottage look and feel to it.

About the neighbourhood
The cottage stands amongst some dramatic scenery and enjoys views of countryside & hillside encompassing the Manod mountains at the front with a craggy backdrop of the Moelwyn mountains which protect the village from much of the wind from northerly gales in the winter and give the village a pleasant southerly aspect with relatively mild weather considering how high it's located in Snowdonia. The cottage is situated in a terrace of about 12 cottages and is located in a quiet position away from the main road and passing traffic, there are parking bays opposite which are for the use of the terrace, so parking should not be a problem, but is on a first come, first served basis.

Situated in the village of Tanygrisiau, meaning 'Under the Steps', a close neighbour of the larger t...
