A spacious four-bedroom detached period property, set in a stunning Snowdonia location

The Old Tannery is a charming detached period house, with four bedrooms and a wealth of cosy, flexible living accommodation, in a peaceful location surrounded by hills and woodland in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park. There are plenty of original features throughout the property, including exposed timber beams, panelling and stone work, lending the living spaces a real sense of character.

The ground floor is home to a spacious sitting/dining room, with its fireplace and French doors opening onto a balcony. From the sitting room, there is access to an attractive sun room, with panoramic windows offering beautiful views over the lush surrounding woodland. The kitchen is well-equipped with an integrated oven and gas hob; while further reception rooms can be found on the lower ground floor, including the 33ft games room and a study.

On the first floor are four generous bedrooms, three of which have their own washbasins, plus a family bathroom with a separate shower unit.

This property has 3.68 acres of land.


The Old Tannery, approached via a driveway, is surrounded by beautifully green gardens, which make the most of the stunning landscape in which the house is set. There is a paved terrace area, rolling lawns dotted with mature trees, and a stream running through the grounds. In total the land amounts to approximately 3.63 acres of which a large proportion is woodland. Opposite the driveway to the property is a detached, stone built double garage.


The property lies just outside the small and idyllic village of Maentwrog, nestled in the heart of the stunning Snowdonia National Park. The village is surrounded by woodland and rolling hills, while the towering peaks of Mount Snowdon, Tryfan and other popular mountains of the Snowdonia National Park are within easy reach. The village has a local pub, and you will find everyday amenities, including supermarkets and schools, in the nearby town of Blaenau Ffestiniog.
