We offer weekly rover tickets for the Ffestiniog Railway, Adult £25.00, child £12.50. Rover tickets also give 20% discount on the Welsh Highland Railway.

Bodorwel is available for weekly lets, 1500hrs Friday to 1000hrs the following Friday.
Bodorwel offers two double rooms, both with a good view, and a travel cot (although you will need to bring cot...

Spent a lovely week based at this cottage to celebrate my train enthusiast son's tenth birthday.
