Cosy 2 Bedroom cottage surrounded by the Moelwyn Mountains.

Gwalia Cottage is situated just outside the famous slate town of Blaenau Ffestiniog, home to the Ffestiniog Narrow Gauge Railway.Gwalia ( which is a ancient name for Wales) is perfectly placed for discovering the delights of North Wales and the Snowdonia National Park. Mountains, lakes, castles and the spectacular Coastline are only a short drive away.

Within walking distance are the world famous LLechwedd Slate Caverns, home to Zip World and Bounce Below! Bring your bikes and travel at speed, down steep paths, which were once used for transporting the slate from the quarries....the list is endless!!
If you prefer a more relaxing holiday why not visit the fabulous beaches at Harlech, Criccieth and Black Rock Sands near Porthmadog.. Spend the day at the Italianate village at Portmerion or just curl up, with a good book and a glass of wine,back at the cottage!
