Tanygrisiau, Blaenau Ffestiniog, Snowdonia National Park, North Wales, Wales
Located in the village of Llan Ffestiniog in the magnificent Snowdonia National Park, this Welsh cottage has one double bedroom. Hen Aelwyd Yr Urdd was originally built over a hundred years ago and has been sympathetically converted to offer accommodation for up to 2 people; a haven for couples looking to get away from it all. Much of its original character has been preserved through exposed beams, an inglenook fireplace and an open fire. There is parking available, and some local amenities are only a short walk away.

Amenities: Electric heating with multi-fuel stove. Electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge, washer/dryer, TV with FreeSat, combi DVD/CD, iPod dock with radio, WiFi, selection of books, games and DVDs. E...

It is a very peaceful area and the cottage, with its wood burning fireplace, was...
