    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 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.

    Gorffwys-Y-Milwr (Soldier’s Rest) is a restored, traditional, end-terraced cottage, ideally situated in the former slate quarrying town of Blaenau Ffestiniog, in the heart of Snowdonia. The property is within walking distance of exciting adventures at Zip World Titan, where you can fly over a slate quarry on Europe’s longest zipwire, Bounce Below, where you can leap on trampoline nets in the old slate cavern, and the Antur Stiniog mountain bike trail centre, where you can take the fast route down the mountains.
    For a more leisurely way of seeing the area, the Ffestiniog Railway offers a scenic journey by narrow gauge steam train, down to the coast at Porthmadog, or you can break your journey at Tan y Bwlch for a stroll around the lovely Llyn Mair. Nearby, the pretty villages of Dolwyddelan, with its historic castle, and Betws-y-Coed, the ‘Gateway to Snowdonia’, are waiting to be explored. Children will love listening for the whistle of the steam train as it comes into the village, which can be heard from the cottage.
    The bright, airy kitchen is well stocked with a variety of cooking equipment, making preparing the family meals, a pleasure, with views across the valley and a comfortable dining area. The cosy living room has ample seating for everyone to unwind after a day of adventures. With a variety of relaxing activities, there will be something for everyone to enjoy. A selection of DVDs, books, toys, games, jigsaw puzzles and music books are provided, suitable for all members of the family. There is a shower room upstairs along with 3 comfortable bedrooms, all of which have wardrobes or cupboards for your belongings and Egyptian cotton bedding and towels are provided.Shop and restaurant ¼mile and pub 0.5 miles

    "Very comfortable cottage at a convenient location. Host were great and very easy to communicate with. It's a stone throw away from slate cavern, for the rainy days!About 30 minutes drive to Llanberis for a hike or the train up Snowdon.Had a great time here, the cottage felt very home like with plenty of toys to keep my 5 year old busy.Would definitely recommend it and we will come back as well. Thanks to Ben and Ruth."
