Snaptrip says

Bryn Eithin is a well-regarded cottage, praised for its cleanliness, comfort, and quiet location. Guests appreciate the thoughtful touches like Welsh cakes and milk, and find the property to be a great base for exploring Snowdonia. While some minor maintenance issues and suggestions for improvements are noted, the overall experience is positive, with many guests expressing a desire to return.

Guests that stayed at this property said

The cottage receives high marks for cleanliness, with multiple reviews mentioning it being very clean and comfortable. One review noted an odd smell in the kitchen cupboards, but this seems to be an isolated comment.

The location is generally appreciated for its proximity to local attractions and quietness. However, one review mentioned a lack of local dining options, which suggests the location may not be ideal for those looking for evening entertainment within walking distance.

Comfort is consistently highlighted, with guests finding the beds and sofas very comfortable. The quietness of the house also contributes to a comfortable stay. There is a suggestion for wardrobe space, indicating room for improvement.

Facilities are well-received, with a fully equipped kitchen and smart TV mentioned. However, there are several comments about maintenance issues such as a dripping tap, slow WiFi, and a need for a drying area for wet gear, which affects the score.

Thoughtfulness is evident through the provision of welcome treats like Welsh cakes and milk, as well as the inclusion of extra plug sockets and a mirror. However, as these gifts are not guaranteed for every stay, they are a delightful bonus rather than a standard offering.

About this property

The well-equipped kitchen with modern cream units caters for all your needs and the downstairs bathroom is modern and well-appointed. Upstairs are two bedrooms, the main bedroom boasts a stylish king-size bed and TV whilst the second bedroom has a view extending towards the Moelwyn mountains. Outside is a rear garden with lawned area and a decked patio with furniture, enjoy the sun from late afternoon, sit and relax, enjoying a glass of something on those balmy summer evenings after a days of exploring. Local shops, restaurants, pubs and even a cinema are all just over a mile away and there are some fantastic walks from the doorstep with great access to Snowdonia which offers more wonderful walking opportunities and mountain bike tracks to explore. Blaenau Ffestiniog is home to a host of adrenaline-fuelled activities at Llechwedd Slate Caverns, Zip World Titan (the largest zip zone in Europe), Zip World Caverns and Bounce Below (deep mine zip wires and the largest underground system of trampolines in the world!) are all located here. For something a little less energetic, the well-known Ffestiniog narrow gauge steam railway is also close by and will be loved by all.

    It was clean, warm, and really homely. Very quiet area, you literally do not hear anything, I’ve slept really well. Will not hesitate to stay here again, shops near by and it’s in the perfect place to visit other places of wales, we have been to Morfa Nefyn, Anglesey, Beddgelert and Aberystwyth were we visited a park and watched the red kite bird get fed, there was well over 100 of them, amazing experience

  • Lee

    Spent 3 days in confort and warmth in late december. Easy parking as house is not on the main road. Great base to explore zipworld, the steam train and north wales.

  • Martin

    Plenty to do and see in the area. Would definitely return for another stay.
