  • "Larger freezer space is required and a fan for the summer hot weather would be very appreciated."

    Otherwise this was a nicely presented property where we had a great time and are very grateful!

The property

Resting on the outskirts of Harlech, a bustling town nestled between both the coast and country of Gwynedd is Woodpecker, an inviting first-floor duplex apartment.

Just paces away from a host of amenities, the popular Royal St. David's Golf Club, and the magnificent Harlech Castle, the apartment offers the ideal base for a family of five, looking to explore North Wales and Snowdonia National Park.

Park up in the communal area before making your way up the steps, ascending to the second floor; here you will locate the open-plan living space where you can prepare meals, dine and unwind in front of the TV, or enjoy a cup of tea while admiring the views of Snowdonia and Harlech castle.

After dinner, refresh in the bathroom, situated on the first floor, next to both the double and bunk rooms, whilst the single neighbours the living space.

Awaken to an itinerary brimming with sightseeing and activities, starting off with a tour of the local castle or a stroll along Harlech Beach, before travelling towards Barmouth, stopping off at the Dyffryn Ardudwy Burial Chamber en route, followed by a stroll across Barmouth Pier, or a hike across the Panorama walking trail.

Spend a day at nearby Shell Island in Llanbedr where you will be impressed by mountainous sand dunes and of course the huge collection of shells to be found on the several miles of beach.

In the national park you'll find a whole host of beauty spots to explore, including the New Precipice Walk / Llwybr Llanelltyd, offering stunning vistas, Zip World Llechwedd for an adrenaline-filled afternoon, and Beddgelert Forest and grave.

Rerouting north, aim for Porthmadog and its Maritime Museum, or aboard the Welsh Highland Heritage Railway for an expansive view of the county, before summiting Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon), worth packing your walking boots for.

Should the Welsh weather lead you to stay indoors, cosy up with the family with one of the many board games and entertainment provided with family fun in mind.

Experience all of this, and more, at Woodpecker.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.
