Lovely Location. Moelwyn Cottage is a cosy Welsh miner's cottage in the heart of Snowdonia with lots of character, in an area that offers some of the most dramatic mountain scenery in England and Wales.

It is situated overlooking the stream on the very edge of the village in a very quiet location with no passing traffic, with lovely views to the front and in the lee of the dramatic Moelwyn mountains. The enclosed front garden is a sun trap, enjoy a coffee or a glass of wine on our wooden companion seat. Or sit over the lane on the communal green space directly beside the stream.

We had a lovely stay at Moelwyn Cottage. It was very clean, tidy & cosy. We loved our cosy nights in by the log burner. It was a great location for exploring Snowdonia and beyond. We had a great time. Thank you!

This is the second time we've stayed in this Tanygrisiau rental and both times the cottage has accommodated us and our two young children brilliantly. Loads to see and do in the area and a great cottage to come home to.

Management response:

Very pleased that you decided to return to the cottage, and glad that you enjoyed it as much as the first time. Best wishes Julia

There is also a pub further up in the village. Explore the Llechwedd Slate caverns for an authentic slate mining experience or hop onto the Ffestiniogg steam railway for a leisurely view of the beautiful scenery.
Two new attractions in 2014, the amazing Zip World Titan and Bounce Below - the exciting underground trampolining experience are 1.5 miles away.
Car not needed
How to get there
Railway: Blaenau Ffestiniog: 2.0 km
The easiest way to get over to Tanygrisiau is predominantly along the A5 via Llangollen. However for a fabulous scenic route with two mountain passes take the most 'direct' route, turn off the A5 before Oswestry signed to Knockin. Then take the route of the B4391 to Bala and then part of the A4212 before turning off again towards Blaenau Ffestiniog. The GPS kicks in with this route if you turn off the A5 between Shrewsbury and Oswestry
