The Old House (Ty Hen) is unique - described by one guest as the most unusual place they had ever stayed in. Dating back to at least 1834, the cottage is excellently situated in the Rhiwbryfdir area of Blaenau Ffestiniog in a very quiet road. Turn right out of the front door and you are within a ten minute walk of the town centre with all the shops and eateries and the Ffestiniog Railway. Also within ten minutes walk are the Llechwedd Slate Caverns with the Victorian Mine Tour and the Quarry Explorer. This is also the home of the Zip World complex with Zip World Titan, Bounce Below and Zip World Caverns. The Antur Stiniog Centre with its excellent mountain bike trails can be found here as well.

Interaction with guests
The keys are kept in a key safe by the front door and I will supply you with the code shortly before your arrival. My caretaker lives next door to the cottage and I am always happy for you to ring me if you have a problem or you want some suggestions for places to visit or things to do. Plenty of local information in the cottage on various walks, national trust properties etc

About the neighborhood
The cottage is in the quiet residential area of Rhiwbryfdir with walks straight from the doorstep into the mountains. As well as being peaceful it has the added advantage of being only ten minutes walk from everything Blaenau has to offer. In one direction you have the Zip World/ Llechwedd Slate Mines complex with Bounce Below, Zip World Titan, The Slate Mines and Quarry Explorer all on your doorstep. This is also the home of the Antur Stiniog bike trails. Take the route towards the town and you have the Ffestiniog Railway and all the town amenities within a short walk.. Blaenau has an excellent Indian restaurant (Red Chillies) and CellB which not only serves superb food but also has a little cinema and occasional other entertainment.
