The property

A superbly located, Victorian bay-fronted, end-terrace cottage situated in the unspoilt and picturesque seaside village of Borth-y-Gest.

Ideal for couples, friends who enjoy holidaying together and families, this cottage offers a cosy and homely atmosphere, and exudes tranquil charm and character.

There are four comfortable bedrooms, all individually furnished and styled, with the front bedroom having the added benefit of a king-size bed and fantastic views from the bay window over the harbour, estuary, Moelwyn Mountains and the Rhinogs.

Downstairs the three reception rooms ensure this cottage really does have room for everyone.

The front sitting room with its bay window is light and bright and has a warming flame-effect electric fire, or after a long day of adventure retire to the cosy family sitting room and enjoy that favourite film or play one of the many board games, Monopoly anyone?

The spacious dining room is perfect for socialising over a leisurely breakfast and the modern, well-equipped kitchen completes this lovely cottage.

The outdoor seating in the mainly paved front garden is the perfect spot for watching the boats in the bay and taking in those wonderful views, whilst enjoying a glass or two of something refreshing.

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.
