    “Fantastic break here at the old band hall in Harlech.”

    Excellent place to stay! Fantastic views and extremely quiet. Only slight niggle was that the mattresses were on the hard side. Otherwise no issues at all. Loved the place.

The property

This superb detached cottage has been converted from the old Harlech Silver Band practice hall in the heart of this popular town.

Situated in an elevated position the property is at the top of Ffordd Pen Llech, now recognised by the Guinness Book of Records as the world's steepest street!

Don’t worry though, the property is very near the top of the sreet and only a short stroll to the shops and restaurants in the town. The cottage also boasts an impressive neighbour as it is right next door to Harlech Castle.

Stunning views of both the castle and the Snowdonia mountain range make this a very special place.

Architecturally designed, the interior of this amazing property is light and airy with a large window looking out over the estuary with partial sea views.

A cosy double bedroom is complemented by an en-suite shower room and, with a split-level design, the sitting room is comfortably furnished with a woodburning stove in the corner, whilst up the steps is a dining area.

A large cupboard cunningly hides a fold-down double bed, offering extra sleeping capacity.

Head down the stairs to the lower ground floor and you will find a small kitchen and a compact bathroom with a small P-shaped bath. Walk out of the patio doors and you step onto a decked terrace with views of Harlech Castle to your left, and the mountains of Snowdonia and the Llyn Peninsula across the bay in front of you.

On a clear day you can see the cafe at the top of Snowdon.

Harlech is a wonderful historic village which is dominated by the 13th century castle complete with a visitor and interpretation centre, but is also home to a range of shops, cafes, bars and restaurants, including the Castell Cottage restaurant which is a few yards away. Have a round of golf at the Royal St. Davids course or head down to the beach and spend the day building your own castle out of sand!

Harlech is located on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park and is within short drives of Barmouth, Porthmadog and the world-famous Italianate village of Portmeirion.

Whatever you choose to do on your North Wales holiday, the quality and location of this cottage will ensure that you will be talking about it for many years to come.
