  • "Warm and welcoming cottage."

    I was very content here. Loved the early mornings when all was quiet and the sun streams in the very large windows to the front. The view from the bedroom....even while sitting in bed! was beautiful. If the village got busy...which it does, theres a pleasant terraced garden, (up steep steps) thats quiet, private and sunny. So you have it all!

  • "The cottage was utterly charming and well presented (far better than the listing description and photos led us to believe)."

    The village is chocolate box perfect and the cottage is very well located within it. Some areas within the cottage could be improved upon but nothing that effected our enjoyment. I would be very happy to stay at 7 Ivy Terrace again in the future.

  • "I loved my stay in your cottage."

    It contained everything I could possibly have needed The beach walks are absolutely stunning, surrounded by sea on one side and mountains on the other. You have access to shops and other amenities within walking distance I had the comfort of a cosy cottage and nature on my doorstep. Everything I wanted and needed for a much deserved break after a long intense 18 months of nursing.

  • "The cottage is nice and is in a lovely position, but the kitchen needs updating and the hot water isn't consistent."

    The front bedroom windows constantly run with water and the curtains are quite old.

  • "The cottage is in a wonderful location with a great view."

    It is very comfortable. Sadly no freezer compartment in the fridge to make some ice for the G&Ts at the end of the day! I would stay there again if returning to Borth-y-Gest.

  • "The photographs of the cottage on your website don't really do it justice - it is better than it looks."

    Borth-y-Gest is very scenic and conveniently located to enjoy all North Wales has to offer.

  • "The lovely cottage is in an ideal location overlooking the bay and mountains."

    Borth-y-Gest is a friendly and relaxing village with lots of places to visit nearby and a great get away. It has two cafes and a bistro serving great food and friendly service. Being golfers we had several golf courses to choose from within a distance of half an hour in the car. Our favourite being Porthmadog GC a mile away. We felt very relaxed after our stay at the cottage.

  • "The rubbish collection is an on going issue that needs to be worked out as there was at least two weeks worth of refuse to dispose of before our own ."

    Even the neighbours seemed to find it confusing

  • "My only criticism is the TV."

    It's very small. there are very few channels (though that may be down to local reception), the aerial cable needed frequent attention when reception broke up, and the handset didn't work well. On the plus side, it was a good base for discovering the area and the bed was very comfortable.

  • "If anything I think the listing undersold the cottage."

    We had a great time, the cottage was lovely and brilliantly placed. I was a little concerned about the on street parking but it didn't present an issue and the car park across the road is free from 16:30-10:00 (overnight). We had a lovely week exploring.

  • "We go for the fabulous view from the front of the cottage."

    The back of the cottage is hardly used. The kitchen could do with a makeover and the drains do smell. It is always clean and the bed is comfortable. A bit of sealant at the back of the basin in the bathroom would be good.

  • "The cottage felt very welcoming."

    It comes very well equipped. Should mention that this property has 2 toilets, very welcome for some people. The views from the bedroom are great if you can't get about and are a people watcher. We've already booked for next year.

    The cottage was clean and well appointed. You could enjoy the local area watching the ebb and flow of the tide to shops, boats, beaches, trains, all within walking distance. easy to access the mountains and the coast to the west.

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.
