Ceunant-Mawr fits the perfect description of a fairy tale cottage. Nestled in a protected, ancient woodland and set on the banks of its own river, peace and tranquillity does not come better than this. Having undergone extensive renovation, this traditional stone building now offers a unique, charming, and luxury two bedroom cottage overlooking the River Teigl.
If experiencing some serious downtime surrounded by natural beauty at its best, where you can go walking through stunning mountain landscapes or fishing from your doorstep, then Ceunant Mawr will certainly appeal to you. Its position within Snowdonia also makes it a great location to be able to explore the surrounding area. Being centrally positioned to make your way to the larger towns like Betws Y Coed or Porthmadog you are also within 5 miles for ZipWorld, Llechwedd Slate Mountain and Antur Stiniog, the downhill mountain biking centre.
The entrance to the cottage is picture-perfect with its oak arch as you come through the front door and into the sitting room. The stone fireplace with log burner is the focus of the room with big leather sofas and lots of rugs and blankets to wrap up in by the fire after a day out in the great outdoors that surrounds you. Oak furniture and the traditional Welsh ornaments on display give the place a really cosy feel.
Into the kitchen which has a much more modern feel with a range style cooker and a colour scheme taken straight out of Farrow and Ball – the traditional features scattered around the room give it that touch of tradition. A large oak dining room table and chairs allows plenty of space for you and the rest of your group to sit and enjoy your breakfast when planning out the day. All the modern appliances you need for your trip are in place including a dishwasher and washing machine.
The separate dining room is the perfect place to have dinner to end your day and the statement lights and wall decorations add to make it a lovely place to spend your evenings.
Upstairs are the two bedrooms. Both doubles, they are carpeted and have the most beautiful views of the garden and river outside. With a boutique feel to them, the statement pieces of furniture throughout make them feel very plush and sumptuous. The period style family bathroom with its rolled top bath, shower etc is just the icing on the cake of making this feel like a very decadent place to stay.
Ceunant-Mawr is within close proximity to Ceunant-Bach, which sleeps an additional two guests.

The cottage itself is located within 3 acres of forest, heathland and garden which includes part of a protected oak woodland and a river. Trout and Salmon are in the river and the cottage comes with a fishing licence and so if you want to catch your supper during your stay, then the opportunity is there. A footpath down into Coed Cymrd is from your doorstep so you can literally just pull your boots and coats on and go.
Blaenau Ffestiniog, whilst not officially in Snowdonia is right in the middle of it and has a surprising amount of attractions of offer; including one the Zipworld locations, Llechwedd Slate Mines and the downhill mountain biking centre, Antur Stiniog. There is a good selection of cafes to go to during the day and if you want some really lovely fresh bread, the famous Model Bakery is located on the high street – famous for their Kurdish Pastries, everything in here is great – including the owner who is needless to say quite a famous character in the area!
In terms of other things to do nearby, Porthmadog is the nearest larger town and where you’ll find all the big supermarkets for your supplies. There is a good high street with lots of gift shops and cafes and of course the starting point for the Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railways which you can actually jump on as it passes through Blaenau if you prefer. A great marina and lovely walk over to Borth Y Gest is also here. The Portmeirion Village is also just a 5 minute drive out of Porthmadog.
In the other direction, you’ll be taken over the Snowdonia mountains and out towards towns like Beddgelert, Betws Y Coed where you’ll be able to enjoy a plethora of outdoor activities including walking, cycling, climbing, SUP, canoeing etc. Swallow Falls, The Fairy Glenn and Gwydir Forest are also in this direction and a must to see if you want to experience some truly beautiful places of outstanding natural beauty.
