    “Moriah House”

    Fell in love with this cottage just looking at the photos when I booked it. I hoped it would live up to my expectations. On entering the property, with my partner, our daughter's age 7&9, and our dog, we were all amazed and lost for words! It was beautiful! Far more to offer inside than we had imagined. Lovely nautical theme running through and a good mixture of old and new interior features and furnishings. This property changes with the weather. On sunny days, it feels spacious and bright.

    Fell in love with this cottage just looking at the photos when I booked it. I hoped it would live up to my expectations. On entering the property, with my partner, our daughter's age 7&9, and our dog, we were all amazed and lost for words! It was beautiful! Far more to offer inside than we had imagined. Lovely nautical theme running through and a good mixture of old and new interior features and furnishings. This property changes with the weather. On sunny days, it feels spacious and bright. The light pours through the large windows. In dull days, it feels snug and cosy in its dim light, especially with the fire lit. More than adequately kitted out kitchen. Inside, the living areas were nice and clean. This is a fantastic base for exploring the surrounding areas. We look forward to booking again. A couple of things for owner to address or consider though. None of these are written as a negative, just as areas that could improve someone's stay. As a dog owner, it would be nice, if possible, to have a small gate at the rear of the property. This would allow the door to outside to be open without worrying about the dog escaping. (We did make use of the fire guard as a tempory barrier!) My 9 year old scalded her back quite badly in the shower when the kitchen tap was turned on. ( warning for other guests) I had to remove one of the bed protectors in daughters room due to an unsightly stain on it. Lastly, a quick hoover under/behind beds needed. Despite this, and the lack of parking, (had to carry all our bits down the hill, but we were aware of this on booking) we had the most amazing stay! Thank you.

The property

This delightful conversion of a chapel vestry boasts many original features and a wonderful welcoming and unique ambience.

Quietly set on one of the oldest hills in Harlech, centrally located for all of the town’s amenities, with the mighty castle in view, this cottage enjoys a panoramic vista over the Cambrian Bay coastline, Llyn Peninsula, beach and mountains of Snowdonia.

Tucked away behind the old chapel hall and chapel, this charming cottage is perfect for a couple or friends alike who want to spend time together exploring this beautiful coastline.

Well-appointed and furnished in a traditional and homely style, this spacious holiday home has some notable features including high ceilings, exposed timbers and purlins, original panelling and wonderful stained glass sash windows in the sitting room and bedrooms.

Extenuated by the high ceilings, the sitting room welcomes you in and boasts views of the coast and castle, as well as benefiting from a multi-fuel stove, perfect for those cooler evenings, extending to the dining area, just ideal for a sit down meal in the evening whilst reminiscing and recalling memories from the day’s adventure and activity.

A well-equipped kitchen with breakfast table and chairs, two double bedrooms, one boasting a lovely four poster bed and a bathroom completes this comfortable and welcoming cottage.

Set next to an historic graveyard, complete with some ancient headstones, guests can relax on a summer’s evening, wining and dining on the raised decked seating area, which enjoys wonderful views of the sea, coast and castle, or sit and enjoy that early morning cup of coffee whilst planning the day ahead.

Walks are in abundance from this delightful cottage, and a visit to the castle is a must, complete with a visitor and interpretation centre.

Harlech’s magnificent sandy beach is just over a mile away, and the famous Royal St. David's Golf Club, one of the finest links courses is just a 15 minute walk away, while the whole of the Snowdonia National Park is just waiting to be explored.

Barmouth, Porthmadog, and the world-famous Italianate village of Portmeirion are all within easy access.

This lovely cottage provides a great base at anytime of the year, whether you’re looking for a quiet holiday with romantic moonlit walks along the beach or something a little more adventurous.
