Borth-y-Gest is a quiet Welsh seaside village of mainly Victorian houses retaining much charm and character. Located by the mouth of the River Glaslyn, this pretty Welsh village has stunning panoramic views over the sands and estuary to the historic Harlech Castle, the Italian styled village of Portmeirion and the Snowdonia National Park beyond. This North Wales village has a tearoom and renowned restaurant both located on the front overlooking the bay; a perfect way to while away the hours watching the comings and goings of the local boatmen. Borth-y-Gest, with its sheltered coves and sandy beaches, has walking in abundance; why not head up Moel-y-Gest or take a wander over the headland to the famous Black Rock Sands, or go a little further afield where the vast Snowdonia National Park awaits? For a day out you can take a trip on the famous Ffestiniog Steam Railway from Porthmadog, only a 15 min walk away, or for a day trip the entire Llyn Peninsula calls. With Anglesey within reach and the whole North Wales coast to be explored, Borth-y-Gest has it all: a quiet bolt hole but conveniently located for ease of access to this stunning area, a must at any time of the year.

Previous visitors' comments about Llannor:
A quiet location that was 5 minutes walk to the bay and coastal path and only 5 minutes drive to Black Rock beach or Porthmadog Town.
Mr Smith, Nuneaton, September 2012
The cottage was delightful. Small but very pretty, well equiped and immaculately clean. It was excellently located just 1 minute from the stunning estuary/harbour and a 5 minute walk to several beautiful beaches. The bustling resort of Portmadog was just a 15 minute walk away.
Mrs Wallen, Leeds, August 2012
Quiet, peaceful and relaxing - excellent weather helped!
