Rental description

John and Ceilia welcome you to their 1883 traditional house in Blaenau-Ffestiniog, in the Snowdonia National Park. Their self-catering guesthouse offers 3 bedrooms.
All rooms in the guesthouse are comfortably furnished and offer beautiful views, either of Lake Tanygrisiau or of the surrounding mountains.

Another highlight is the Ffestiniog Railway which can be seen from the house – a very well known, 185-year-old steam railway line. The two sunrooms and the dining rooms are an invitation to dine and relax. In the large front garden, cosy benches, a small mountain stream and a terrace await you.

As trained mountain guides, the hosts care about the area, the environment and are interested in outdoor activities. They run their business entirely by themselves and are proud of the personalised service that they offer.
Of course, John and Ceilia are very cautious during these Covid times: they have received the national “Good-to-go” covid safe award and all staff are vaccinated.
In short – the eco-guesthouse has everything that creates a feel-good atmosphere!

Sustainability criteria

Sustainability is written in capital letters here: The holiday home is completely CO2-neutral since 2013 – and this applies to all areas: from heating to electricity as well as the kitchen, the wifi and the charging stations for electric cars.

Extensive measures were taken by the hosts to achieve this goal:
- Computer controlled biomass central heating
- Two large solar water heating systems
- A stove running on wood from their own garden
- Solar panels
- Electric car charging stations
- Turf roofs

In addition, John and Ceilia buy 80% of their products locally. They achieve this by growing their vegetables, using their own duck eggs, etc.
As an engineer, John also makes it his mission to upcycle and make old things look brand new again – in order to save as many resources as possible!

Ceilia and John have received several awards for their commitment: Green Dragon Environment Standard, Welsh eco scheme, Green Tourism and twice the golden award of the UK eco scheme.
