  • “Unfortunately, whilst this property was adequate for our needs the general standard of maintenance we expect from Menai Property holidays below the standard expected.”

    e.g. the paintwork required upgrading throughout. Bathroom floorboards need attention as there appears to have been a leak which has also badly stained the landing carpets. The ceiling in the kitchen needs a repair

    e.g. the paintwork required upgrading throughout. Bathroom floorboards need attention as there appears to have been a leak which has also badly stained the landing carpets. The ceiling in the kitchen needs a repair The sofa covers in the living room are very grubby and need cleaning. The carton of milk left in the fridge for us was out of date.

    - Christine, October 2021

    Thank you for your feedback and we’re sorry that the cottage didn’t meet your expectations. Unfortunately we were unable to travel (due to covid travel restrictions) after October 2020 until April 2021 to do planned winter maintenance. Since re-opening in April 2021 we have been fully booked with insufficient time between lets to address what you have mentioned. We are planning to refurbish accordingly during the quieter winter months. As you have mentioned, we did have a leak, the visual effects of which are fairly minor and hopefully didn’t detract from the enjoyment of your holiday. We apologise regarding the milk error, there must have been an older carton at the back of the storage cupboard that we missed. Property Owner

The property

Bwthyn y Mor is a lovely coastal-themed holiday cottage, decorated in muted, relaxing colours to aid you in a relaxing break.

It has a sunny south-facing garden and overlooks a pretty village green in the popular seaside village of Borth y Gest on the Llyn Peninsula.

Within walking distance are several beautiful sandy coves leading to the glorious and well known Black Rock Sands beach.

Visitors to Borth y Gest return time and time again.

It has a pretty bay and a popular bistro and tea shop, both with stunning views.

There is also somewhere to buy your morning paper and milk.

A two-minute drive or a ten-minute walk will take you to Porthmadog, which has a great selection of shops, restaurants, bars and a supermarket to stock up on your holiday essentials.

This is a great location from which to visit Snowdonia, Portmeirion and the Welsh Highland Railway - or, for something a little different, go llama trekking in Morfa Bychan!

Ideal for a family, this is a welcoming house in a popular holiday hotspot.

We're sure it will book quickly, so don't delay!

About the location

BORTH-Y-GEST

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.
