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!

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.

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

Cae Bach was a wonderful place to land when we arrived to Blaenau Ffestiniog. The cottage was very spacious, well kept, and accommodated all of our needs as a family of 5. We travel to Blaenau every couple of years from Canada to visit family,...More
