Information on Cottage Holidays in Manod

The main draw to this lovely settlement is Manod Mawr, a soaring mountain that is a part of the Moelwynion group of mountains in central Snowdonia. This incredible mountain has a couple of sister peaks and they are sometimes referred to as the Ffestiniog Hills, and if you are a keen hiker, then trekking to the summit of Manod Mawr is a must if staying in Manod as you will get some of the most spectacular views on offer in this gorgeous part of Wales. 

There are plenty of cottages in Manod available to rent where you can enjoy the incredible scenery every day. As it is right in the centre of Snowdonia National Park, visitors can ascend to the peak of Mount Snowdon or climb smaller peaks close by, and there are plenty of walking trails around through forestry and by lakes. On these lakes, water sports activities are very common, from canoeing to water skiing and swimming, and there are also places to hire bicycles and go pony trekking. Snowdonia is pure heaven for those who love the great outdoors and staying in the charming Manod is a great way to experience what this part of Wales has to offer, including the less-visited mountain range of Moelwynion.

Manod is located within an area where lots of people speak the Welsh language, and whilst enjoying a cottage holiday here, you can really get an authentic feel of village life in Wales. There is a pub and a couple of shops in the community centre, and friendly locals at every turn. Tranquil and serene, the settlement of Manod is perfect for those wishing to take a relaxing break in a stunning part of the country and there is plenty to do here if you want to experience culture and history as well.

The Ffestiniog Railway is located close by to Manod as it is one of the main attractions in the area, great for families, groups of friends and couples alike. This narrow gauge heritage railway is also within the boundaries of Snowdonia and runs for approximately 14 miles, from the Porthmadog Harbour on the pristine coast to the town of Blaenau Ffestiniog. This fascinating train guides its passengers through gorgeous forestry and past towering mountains, and today this historical steam train will take you back in time to the early 19th century on a wonderful and exciting journey.

The village of Manod has plenty to recommend it for a country break in Snowdonia. In terms of finding good quality accommodation, you can rest assured that Country Cottages Online provides you with an excellent choice of options from large country houses to cottages for two.
