1 Waterloo Cottage

This stone-built, semi-detached cottage has been beautifully renovated to provide homely accommodation within the town of Blaenau Ffestiniog. Surrounded by the wonders of Snowdonia, this is an ideal base for a couple looking to escape among the area's rural splendour. The property is the former home of well-known author, philosopher and poet, John Cowper Powys, who spent the last nine years of his life here. Get a sense of the property's traditional charm from the moment you enter, as the alluring sitting room is lined with whitewashed exposed stone walls. A woodburning stove set in a stunning Inglenook fireplace provides added warmth when watching your favourite shows on the Smart TV. Step up into the kitchen, which adopts a more modern design and plays host to a useful range of fixtures and fittings for your convenience. Climb the stairs to reach the first floor, where you will first discover a glistening family bathroom presented in immaculate white, with the option of a shower over the bath. A well-presented double bedroom completes the interior of the property, which looks out across the dramatic mountains, making up the surrounding skyline. There is a small enclosed courtyard accessed from the kitchen and rear of the property, perfect for securely storing bikes. Stroll into Blaenau Ffestiniog with ease from here, hosting a wide range of high-quality spots to enjoy some shopping, wining and dining at your leisure. Discover some of the area's most popular attractions nearby, including the fascinating Slate Mountain and the adrenaline-pumping Zip World. Outdoor lovers can ramble across luscious landscapes or hike challenging peaks close by, also we have a padlocked gate to the rear allowing for safe storage of bikes. If you're looking to experience the area without the blood, sweat and tears, treat yourself to a trip on the Ffestiniog Railway - a journey to truly cherish. Use this unique holiday home as the base for an unforgettable Snowdonia adventure.
