Located in the centre of the village of Maentwrog, the charming three bedroom quarryman's cottage in Snowdonia is perfectly situated to explore many of Snowdonia's attractions, as well as the nearby slate landscapes, which have recently been awarded UNESCO World Heritage status. For guests who prefer to spend more time at the cottage but don't want to cook, it's only a short walk to The Grapes Hotel in the centre of the village serving fantastic food in a great setting. Relaxing in the courtyard of Ty-Canol on a sunny afternoon, when the timing is right, listen out for the sounds of the Ffestiniog Railway steam trains which pass nearby.

Situated six miles north, Zip World Llechwedd is a popular destination for adrenalin junkies. Surrounded by the walls of slate of the Llechwedd Quarry, there is the opportunity to whizz through the air on the Titan 2 attraction, which includes a truck tour of the quarry and two ziplines, the larger of the two providing an exhilarating flight over the quarry. For visitors who prefer to be underground than suspended in the air, there are three below ground adventures to experience. The Deep Mine tour takes you on an underground exploration of the old slate mines, in the form of a guided tour packed full of interesting information about the lives and work of the slate miners. Kids will love Bounce Below, providing the opportunity to head into the caverns and jump and bounce on huge underground nets suspended in the caves. Finally, Caverns is an underground adventure course consisting of a number of zip lines, via ferrata and rope bridges. A must visit attraction when staying in the area.

There are plenty of fabulous walking routes in the area. Head to Tanygrisiau and explore the former Cwmorthin slate mine which provides a gentle walk passing waterfalls, the ruins of the slate mine and Cwmorthin Lake. For a slightly more challenging hike, a road leads up to the Llyn Stwlan Reservoir with an impressive dam built into the mountainside. The road follows a series of switchbacks to reach the dam and is popular with cyclists wanting a challenge! A twenty minute drive westbound leads to Porthmadog and onwards to a number of stunning beaches in the area including Black Rock Sands, where you can park up on the sand. Further south, the stunning golden sand beach of Harlech is flanked by impressive sand dunes and a popular golf course, overlooked by the imposing Harlech Castle, sitting on an outcrop in the town. Another must see attraction near Porthmadog is the Italianate village of Portmeirion - a stunning collection of brightly coloured buildings set in beautiful gardens overlooking the estuary.
