  • We guarantee you the best price

    Our cottages are professionally managed by our partners and payments are taken by them, but rest assured, by booking via Snaptrip you'll pay the lowest possible price for your trip.

    We never charge you more than you would pay booking directly on the partner's site and if you become a Snaptrip member you can save even more. If you find a property priced lower anywhere else on the internet (we’d be amazed if you do), simply email us at marketing@snaptrip.com and we'll refund you the difference.

    At the head of the remote and peaceful Machno Valley, you’ll find The Old Post Office in the village of Cwm Penmachno. This lovely semi-detached property has a good sized kitchen/dining room and the old shop is now occupied by the living room, with views out over the surrounding countryside. The rear garden has been beautifully finished too, and provides an attractive outside area for al fresco dining.

    Once one of fifteen shops in the village, after the local quarry closed down, so did the shops, but you can learn about the history of the village in a fascinating exhibition in the nearby Shiloh Community Centre.

    There are walks from the door to experience the splendour of the Snowdonia National Park, and a regular bus service too! You can bring your bike and experience the local forest bike trails, or hop in the car to explore the area. There’s a pub, 3 miles away in Penmachno, or for a greater selection of eateries, the popular village of Betws-y-Coed is just 8 miles away. Here you will find a miniature railway, golf course, historic churches and the amazing Zip World Fforest offering great adrenaline fuelled activities for all the family, such as the Fforest Coaster, tree top nets and Powerfan Plummet where you can freefall for 106ft!

    From Cwm Penmachno you can also take the mountain road over to Ffestiniog and on to the coast at Porthmadog, together with Black Rock Sands (don’t forget your bucket and spade) and the quirky Italianate village of Portmeirion, designed by Sir Clough Williams Ellis. You can also take a trip on a steam train on the famous Ffestiniog Railway between Porthmadog and Blaenau Ffestiniog, a picturesque journey as the line twists and turns. In Blaenau Ffestiniog, you can experience the largest zip wire zone in the world and learn about the world of slate quarrying at Llechwedd Slate Caverns, before returning to your lovely holiday cottage for some rest and relaxation. Shop 7½ miles, pub 3 miles and restaurant 5 miles.
