It is the perfect abode for a spot of switch off, coming with a gorgeous living space, a sleek well-equipped kitchen, a smart family bathroom and three lavishly appointed bedrooms, each exuding a unique charm and an abundance of comfort.

Boots Cottage is an oasis of calm where you can hunker down with one of the world’s most revered wildernesses on the doorstep. You must pack your walking boots and a good book or three as serenity awaits. You can even bring your furry friend for long walks in these astonishing landscapes. The cottage enjoys a very smart exterior and within you will enjoy its cool vibe with beautiful furnishings mingling with ancient nods from its past. A sumptuous sofa and trendy accent chairs sit beside the original slate fireplace and gorgeous cosy electric fire that will keep you company when a rural chill sets in. You can snuggle up, turn on the smart television and relax with a film from your Netflix account. There is smart cabinetry either side of the fireplace and gorgeous wooden flooring that stretches through to the dining area. Here you will find a lovely dining table, chairs and a bench covered with luscious fur. A door opens to the sleek, contemporary kitchen with its cool slate floor, handy breakfast bar and excellent appliances including a Nespresso coffee machine. A welcome hamper will be waiting for you as a thank you for your booking. The family bathroom sits beyond the kitchen, another cool number with a bath and overhead shower.

Upstairs you will discover three super trendy bedrooms, two doubles with exposed stone walls and another with bunk beds that fit both adults and children. These rooms enjoy cool calm colour palettes of soft greens, ivories and white and the beds are adorned with luxury linens and stylish soft furnishings. Boots Cottage has been restored to showcase the beautiful features of a traditional Welsh cottage while also offering top notch fittings and contemporary flair. You will relish in its beauty, charm and character which have been married marvellously with this carefully curated selection of modern furniture.

There are yet more cool vibes in the pretty courtyard where you will find a gorgeous sofa set where you can enjoy a cup of tea, a glass of wine and the freshest of air.

The breathtaking Snowdonia National Park covers eight hundred and forty square miles with its purple tipped mountains and lush forests. The park is spectacular and crammed full of outdoor activities including cycling, climbing, horse riding, golfing, bird watching, caving and watersports. It is sprinkled with ancient monuments and museums.

Boots Cottage enjoys a wonderful location in the town of Blaenau Ffestiniog. Once a slate mining centre, it now attracts many tourists for its beauty, charm and character. This former slate capital of the world has become on of North Wales’s most innovative activity centres. It has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The slate that tumbles down its steep mountain slopes is now the province of mountain bikers and zipline riders while the underground caverns are now home to the world’s largest subterranean trampoline and more zipline action. It enjoys a compelling beauty and Snowdonia’s natural and dramatic grandeur.

Llechwedd’s Slate Mountain Adventure offers a truly unique experience through the historical quarry. There are exhilarating ex-military truck rides to the highest peaks and the vast quarries of Maenofferen, Diffwys Casson and others while enjoying breathtaking views of South Snowdonia and Snowdon itself, Moel Siabod, the Moelwyn mountain range and the Irish Sea. You can experience a deep mine tour five hundred feet below ground taking Europe’s steepest cable railway or have a go at slate splitting. You will hear stories of the miners and experience an award-winning light and sound display at the underground lake. Also on site is Bounce Below where you can jump and bounce from net to net in a cathedral size cavern. A trip to the Zip World Caverns takes you through an epic journey through underground caverns on ziplines, rope bridges, via ferrata and tunnels at Zip World Titan. There is also underground adventure golf, thrilling activities.

As well as exploring the Snowdonia National Park during your stay, you may also wish to head for the beautiful Llyn Peninsula, a protected Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There are stunning, idyllic beaches to visit, seaside resorts with an excellent bistro life, pretty coastal hamlets, picturesque harbours and smart marinas. The historic fishing village of Aberdaron was the last stop for pilgrims on the way to Ynys Enlli otherwise known as Bardsey Island, or the ‘Isle of 20000 Saints’ which is now a National Nature Reserve famous for its birdlife. Abersoch is a delightful seaside resort with sailing and watersports, a bistro dining scene, fabulous beaches and a lovely sheltered harbour. Llanbedrog boasts a photogenic line of colourful beach huts and a superb beach. Porthdinllaen is a much loved, much photographed coastal hamlet brimming with quaint houses above a stunning half moon of golden sand. Beside Porthdinllaen is Nefyn with its maritime museum, pretty harbour and a sweeping crescent of sand. Its headland golf course is extremely scenic. Criccieth is a beautiful, elegant seaside resort on Cardigan Bay known as the ‘Pearl of Wales on the Shores of Snowdonia’. This attractive Victorian resort offers fantastic beaches and traditional Welsh charm. The Llyn peninsula’s capital Pwllheli is a very busy seaside resort.
