Tanygrisiau, Blaenau Ffestiniog, Snowdonia National Park, North Wales, Wales
Relax to the bubbling sounds of the Barlwyd River to the front of this pretty end 1854 Slate Miners Cottage. Watch the steam train pass to the rear of the cottage and mountain stream to the side.

A charming cosy riverside cottage located in the picturesque village of Tanygrisiau which is famous for its slate mining. In the heart of Snowdonia, in an area that offers some of the most dramatic mountain scenery in Wales.

The cottage provides a lovely open plan living space whilst preserving its original character, features including exposed stonework, wood panelling, beams and fireplace. It is situated overlooking the river on the very edge of the village in a very quiet location with little passing traffic, with lovely views of the dramatic Moelwyn mountains.

Just up the road is Zip World, Bounce Below & Llechwedd Slate Caverns....

About the neighbourhood
Tanygrisiau is a small welsh village in the heart of Snowdonia. Welsh for ‘below the steps. This area is well-known for its slate quarries, especially near Blaenau Ffestiniog, but don’t let the thought of slate quarries put you off.

Tanygrisiau is nestled on the lower slopes of the Moelwyn Mountains. There is a wonderful panoramic view of the mountain-side to the north of the village.

The region supports many adventure sports such as canoeing, mountain biking, family cycling, white-water rafting, abseiling, hill walking, navigation skills, gorge walking and canyoning and near the coast – windsurfing and surfing. These are within a 30-minute drive.
