    “Lovely, homely well equipped cottage with amazing views.”

    Well situated to explore North Wales with a number of restaurants in the immediate vicinity. Menu choices and food very good. A lovely, relaxing location to unwind. Would certainly make a return visit.

The property

This is a superb Borth-y-Gest cottage in a fantastic central harbour location, benefiting from views over the beach, in the heart of Borth-y-Gest village on the Llyn Peninsula, in North Wales.

This is a superbly appointed, double fronted Borth-y-Gest cottage, situated next to the renowned Moorings Bistro, and offers light spacious living accommodation, with a woodburner set below the original slate mantle, and double bay windows overlooking the sea.

There is also a fully fitted, stylish modern kitchen, double shower room, two double bedrooms and a twin room, with a second sitting room with full-size sprung double sofa bed and window seating providing superb coastal views.

The front master bedroom of this Borth-y-Gest cottage has French doors leading out onto a generous balcony where you can take breakfast whilst watching the activity on the water.

Outside, two patio areas at the front of this Borth-y-Gest cottage provide great spots to sit and watch the world go by, and to the rear, steep steps lead up to a terraced garden with lawns, patio seating area and views over the rooftops and across the bay towards Snowdonia.

There is an excellent golf course at Morfa Bychan less than 5 minutes away, and the delights of Portmeirion, Porthmadog and Black Rock Sands are all within a few minutes' drive.

Of course you may decide that this Borth-y-Gest cottage has enough to offer and just stay and enjoy the stunning location, breathtaking at any time of year!

About the location


Porthmadog 1.2 miles; Criccieth 6 miles.

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, and a short drive away from the Italian styled village of Portmeirion, this pretty Welsh village has stunning panoramic views over the sands and estuary to the historic Harlech Castle and the Snowdonia National Park beyond. This North Wales village has two bistros and a coffee lounge all located on the front overlooking the bay and all with dog-friendly outdoor seating areas; perfect places 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 and Welsh Highland Railway from Porthmadog, only a 15 minutes' walk away, or for those with younger children why not visit the shorter but more child-focussed Welsh Highland Heritage Railway? For a day trip the entire Llyn Peninsula calls. With Anglesey within reach and the whole North Wales coast with the Wales Coast Path 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.
