About Manod View

Manod View sleeps three guests and is a charming stone holiday cottage that sleeps three guests in two bedrooms, providing wonderful, spacious and light self-catering accommodation, enhanced by high ceilings and a neutral decor. There is a good sized lounge with gas fired living flame coal effect fire, separate dining room and fully equipped kitchen which is modern, providing everything needed for a relaxing holiday. The spacious modern bathroom has a double ended bath for those romantics amongst us (!) and the main bedroom has a King-size bed. Guests will not be disappointed with the high standard and attention to detail taken to make this lovely house a real home from home.

Standing slightly elevated from the road with approximately five steps to the front door, Manod View is set back from the pavement and front courtyard and affords a pleasant outlook over craggy mountainous scenery and a waterfall that cascades down the hillside to the front of the cottage. Situated in a terrace of around twelve cottages close to a road, Manod View is double glazed throughout which minimises what little road noise there is and there is parking available on the roadside at the front of the cottage.

Exuding a friendly welcome with a warm ambience, Manod View is in an ideal location for exploring the many attractions Snowdonia offers. Blaenau Ffestiniog is one of the areas historic slate mining towns (three miles away) which offers a good choice of places to eat, shops, pubs, petrol station, leisure centre with pool and the famous Ffestiniog Narrow Gauge Steam Railway - an award winning attraction and wonderful nostalgic way of discovering the beauty of the area. There are numerous wonderful walks, majestic lakes, waterfalls and attractions to discover locally including the underworld of Llechwedd Slate Caverns which is also home to Antur Stiniog’s mountain bike centre with thrilling downhill tracks and trails for the adventurous.

Manod View really is the ideal base for exploring the many attractions Snowdonia has to offer. These include the Italianate village of Portmeirion (eight miles); Llechwedd Slate Caverns; many CADW heritage sites and beaches (a short twenty or thirty minute drive); Coed y Brenin, one of the best mountain bike centres in Britain (twelve miles) and of course Snowdon itself, which is just a thirty minute drive from the cottage.
