  • "We felt like it was home away from home."

    Everything was well thought out, everything explained, & everything was so comfortable. The only negative was that we would have liked access to the property on arrival at 2pm - 4pm is too late. I'm sure the 4pm was a left-over from Covid rules. Lovely, high quality accommodation.

  • "Bronallt is perfect for a comfortable, clean and safe holiday."

    All aspects of the stay are carefully organised by the owners. The nearby cafes provide lovely ice-creams, snacks and meals. The house is right on the front for ease of access for dog walks. There are great beaches nearby which are ideal for the whole family. Lots of attractions nearby for visiting, really a week wasn't enough! Hope to come back.

  • "Bronallt is a beautiful house which is extremely comfortable, warm, cosy and fitted out to a very high standard."

    There is everything you could possibly need and some little extras e.g dog towel, poo bags and dog treats. As I mentioned earlier the facilities are exceptional, the furniture is of a very high quality, kitchen utensils, cutlery, crockery, appliances and even the kitchen roll is good quality. The bedding and towels again are great quality. You genuinely get a sense that the owners want you to have a very special stay in their property which we did. The location is stunning and waking up to that view was very special. We had a really relaxed and restful break and would highly recommend this property and location.

    The house was cosy, and catered for a rainy day at home (dvd player, games, books). The nearby Bistro was friendly with excellent food, but opening times are dependent on bookings out of season. Had an excellent week and would not hesitate to book again.

  • "The Bronallt Cottage at Borth - y - Gest made our holiday in Wales a special and memorable experience."

    It most definitely exceeded our expectations. The cottage sits in a prime location, which has beautiful views of the bay and the welsh hills on the horizon. Close by is Porthmadog and all it has to offer, only a 15 minute walk along the front and Marina. The coastal walks near by are also as pleasurable. The cottage is very comfortable, well maintained and equipped. The owners passion for this place is very evident and shines through, nothing was missed, they had thought of every single detail and their hospitality was quite generous compared with other rentals we have stayed in. I have sang it's praises to family and friends since our return, will definitely stay here if we holiday in Wales in the future, a pure gem and not to be missed.

    The local views, and empty sandy coves all in easy walking distance provided a constant source of healthy entertainment for all the family. The afternoons were used as an excuse for excursions to one of the many castles in the area. After an evening meal the children would return to the beaches and local walks, before returning to their beds and ipads.

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.
