The property

This lovely, Grade II listed property stands on The Rock, amidst the twisty streets of old Barmouth, with wonderful views.

Just ten minutes' walk from the renowned Blue Flag sandy beach, this is a perfect base for a seaside holiday with friends or family.

The property is accessed via a stepped and sloping pathway and although there is no vehicle access, the owners provide two parking permits for the nearby car park.

Goronwy Cottage, formerly two fisherman's cottages, is a wonderful property retaining many original features.

There is a splendid inglenook fireplace, exposed beams, slate flag and stripped pine flooring and Georgian sash windows.

Set over three floors, with many rooms enjoying unrestricted views over the town towards the sea, and two staircases at either end of the cottage, this seaside cottage is a fabulous hide-and-seek haven!

Entering from the veranda into a spacious kitchen with dining area, which is well-appointed with plenty of units and a Belling cooking range, you will feel immediately at home.

The chef of the group will be happy to prepare some tasty meals which can either be enjoyed alfresco style or at the dining table inside.

The sitting room has an impressive inglenook fireplace with a woodburning stove, perfect for those cooler, winter evenings.

There is also a handy boot room, providing ample storage for boots and coats with the addition of a cloakroom for your convenience.

Arranged over the two upper floors are five bedrooms in total, three with en-suite shower rooms and all individually styled with comfy beds and 100% cotton, luxury hotel linen.

A family bathroom is also located on the first floor and services the remaining bedrooms.

The TV/games room on the third floor is a great place for the kids, they can play and watch TV in one room, whilst the grown-ups relax downstairs, enjoying the peace and quiet.

Goronwy cottage boasts a west-facing, period veranda and a large sun decked terrace.

This is the perfect place to sit and enjoy tangerine sunsets, with wonderful views over the glistening ocean.

This lovely cottage is in a superb location for enjoying the shops, restaurants and pubs on the doorstep, as well as the sandy beach and the Mawddach Estuary, which John Ruskin said provided "one of the most sublime views in Europe".

This whole area is a haven for walkers and climbers, sailing and water sports enthusiasts, as well as offering some of the best mountain biking in the UK.

Harlech, now a World Heritage Site, with its castle is only ten miles away, whilst slightly further afield is the Italianate village of Portmeirion and the harbour town of Porthmadog, where you can take the Ffestiniog Steam Railway to Blaenau Ffestiniog and enjoy the industrial heritage and slateworks.

For the more adventurous, there’s Zip World Titan or Bounce Below, an underground trampoline.

A truly delightful holiday cottage for enjoying an exciting year-round holiday with family and friends.

    “The cottage was very spacious and cosy and it was lovely to have a log burner, with a good supply of logs.”

    It was a central location and had great views. The cottage had everything we needed for our stay.

    It was a central location and had great views. The cottage had everything we needed for our stay. Visitors would just need to be aware of the lack of vehicle access and the steps up to the property.
