↑ Return to Tan y Rhos Cottage


Tan y Rhos cottage commands panoramic views of rolling hillside, countryside and forestry from the rear garden with a wonderful outlook towards the Manod mountains at the front. The cottage is located on the main road into Blaenau Ffestiniog so some road noise may be experienced.
Manod is situated between the impressive Manod and Moelwyn mountains near the centre of Snowdonia National Park. The town of Blaenau Ffestiniog is only 1.5 miles away from the cottage, a lovely slate mining town which is steeped in history and is proud of it’s heritage of slate and steam.
The rugged craggy landscape is an area of outstanding natural beauty, surrounded by the Moelwyn and Manod mountain ranges, and offers a wealth of walks, lakes, waterfalls and attractions such as the World Famous Ffestiniog narrow gauge steam railway and the Llechwedd slate caverns which is now also the home of Antur Stiniog’s new downhill mountain bike centre with world class downhill tracks and trails, Zip Worlds Titan (the largest zip zone in Europe), Zip World Caverns and Bounce Below (the largest underground trampoline in the World!). The town has a good variety of shops and pubs, there is even a cinema showing the latest movies.
