    Nostalgia of traditional smoke & steam pervades when the famous Ffestiniog Steam railway runs past the rear of the cottage. Glan yr Afon is a delightful 18th century miner's cottage which retains character and features from a bygone era, such as an impressive inglenook fireplace housing a multi fuel wood burring stove and original exposed beams in the lounge. The cottage overlooks a small mountain river, and open countryside scenery to the front with a backdrop of craggy hillside behind.

    Glan yr Afon exudes a warm & friendly welcome and is presented to a good standard with special attention to detail to ensure a comfortable stay is had by all.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We stayed at Glan yr afon cottage in October 2013. Its a lovely, cosy cottage in a great location. The owners have included lots of thoughtful touches to make it welcoming, for example, a starter pack for the fire, a welcome gift on arrival (wine & cake!), plus lots of information on the surrounding area, walks, maps, even Tupperware for your packed lunch! Great location, from the village there are walks you can do and you can hop on the Ffestiniog railway (station is 2 mins walk up the hill). We also drove to Conwy, Anglesey, port Meirion, Harlech castle, Llandudno and snowdon, all an hour or less away. And there were loads more places to visit, that was all we could cram into the week! A lovely cottage, warm and snug, great facilities in a great location. Highly recommend it, especially for the price. more

Thank you for your lovely comments, we are delighted you had a lovely stay with us and hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back in the future. Best Wishes, Angie & Rich more
