The detail

Formerly the shooting residence of the Earl of Marlborough, Old Slate is an endearingly classic Grade II listed cottage steeped in the heart of Snowdonia. With its rustic slate floors, this property harks back to the industrial roots of the area but has been renovated with essential mod cons, from a sleek roll-top bath to an opulent hot tub. Immersed in the mountains of Snowdonia, Old Slate is a retreat from the everyday hustle and bustle; a chance to unwind and reset.

Sleeping six across three bedrooms, Old Slate forms the perfect family retreat. Set across 1022 square feet, there’s endless space to relish in a tranquil family holiday, allowing guests to unwind amidst picturesque views of one of the most breathtaking areas in Wales. The kitchen is equipped with a dishwasher, freezer, fridge, kitchen utensils, microwave, oven and toaster to take the stress away from the holiday, further including an iron and an ironing board and a washing machine.

WiFi is available throughout, and the living area includes a TV to indulge in on a rainy day. Endlessly toasty, Old Slate features central heating and, even better, a fireplace to exude cosiness during the winter months. The bathroom features a sleek roll-top bath apt for indulging in a glass of fizz amidst the bubbles, with the outdoor garden area accessing dazzling vistas of the green hills of Snowdonia.

Fitting for nature lovers, Old Slate is surrounded by the rolling hills, willowing streams and steep mountains that encompass Snowdonia. Found in Gwynedd, the local area is filled with valleys and chocolate-box villages, with the Snowdonia National Park’s night skies forming the perfect spot to settle in and wait for a shooting star. If you fancy tackling Wales’ highest mountain, then a trip up Mount Snowdon is a must, with gorge walking, rock climbing, mountain biking and hiking similarly available.

Want to dip into watersports? River Tryweyn boasts high-speed rapids apt for rafting. Plas Tan y Bwlch Gardens promises beautiful green vistas, and St David’s Church offers an insight into the local history. The younger years will enjoy an afternoon spent at Zip World Slate Caverns for an exciting venture down a zipline, with Zip World Llechwedd Deep Mine Tour posing an adventure for the brave.
