This is a charming former rectory, situated in a world of industrial archaeology with wild woods nearby and a rugged backdrop. Activities such as mountain biking, climbing, walking and canoeing are on the doorstep and beautiful empty sweeping beaches are 20 minutes away by car. It's in the town of Blaenau Ffestiniog which is a fascinating and somewhat wild place! Although the cottage sleeps 7 in beds be warned there's only one bath/shower room so you'll have to be patient with washing! (although there is also a basic outside loo). It's a simple, only slightly improved property, with no TV or wireless, although you can get a reasonable 3/4G with some providers. It's not a child friendly garden (for the able and intrepid adults only - the steps are awkward and steep and slippery).

We are not able to provide linen or towels - we do supply plenty of duvets, pillows and blankets though. There's a public car park over the road, about 30m away. We're trying to improve everything each year so please let us know if there's anything you think would make it better! More

Blaenau Ffestiniog is a working mining town and in a good position to explore Snowdonia and the surrounding area.. We visited 2 pubs and the hotel in the town and the locals were friendly. Sadly none of them served food during the week so we...More

Dear Nick I’m sorry that the house did not come up to your standard. Unfortunately many of the things we cannot change about the house as it is listed and so we cannot do anything about the size of the kitchen and the windows –...More

Cae Bach is a lovely big house in Blaenau Ffestiniog, a former Rectory with loads of rooms and space to relax. We spent most evenings lazing in the living room after hard days of walking, and although we didn't need to use it as it...More

We stayed here last week, the cottage is dated and tired looking. It could do with a spruce up and good clean. Cleaner hadn't been in before our stay, I've informed owner who is looking into this. A T.V. would be an added bonus as...More

Interaction with guests
After contacting Tanya, our keyholder, and arranging key handover she will give you the key and show you in. As this is a family holiday cottage we turn off the water and electricity when not in so, if they're turned off then turn the mains on at the electric meter in the hall as you go in, high on the left wall. The water is a somewhat makeshift white plastic tap to the left of the kitchen sink. Adjust the fridge temperature as necessary on the dial inside.

How to get there
Car is a good idea, with very easy parking opposite, next to the church, but there's a train station close by and a reasonable bus service to take you around the mountains and to the local towns and beaches.
