    “Lovely home with beautiful views of the harbour.”

    The cottage is in a peaceful location with easy access to lots of lovely lakes and beaches. We particularly loved Black Rock Sands.

The property

Porthmadog 1.1 miles.

A well-presented and comfortable detached modern property occupying a large corner plot, pleasantly situated in a private location in a popular residential no-through road in the unspoilt picturesque seaside village of Borth-y-Gest near Porthmadog.

With views over the village towards the harbour, Cardigan Bay coastline and the mountains beyond, this cottage is ideal for couples, friends and families, and being so close to the beach and harbour will appeal to anyone looking for a seaside escape.

This coastal cottage is well presented and furnished to a good standard throughout and offers spacious accommodation, with a light and bright sitting room with dual aspect windows complete with comfy seating and a large smart TV with FreeSat and DVD player.

The kitchen is home to all the appliances you need to cook up some culinary delights, with a dishwasher and washing machine.

There is plenty of room for everyone with a large dining area off the kitchen which overlooks the beautiful garden, ideal for family meals.

Three well-appointed bedrooms, including a super-king-size, double and bunk room, and a shower room are situated upstairs, completing the accommodation.

Outside, to the rear is a delightful enclosed garden area which backs on to a nature reserve providing a lovely, peaceful area to sit and enjoy the birdlife; on summer days why not enjoy dining alfresco on the patio?

Within the village are a popular cafe and restaurant, both of which overlook the delightful harbour, a short walk along the coastal path finds an array of beautiful sandy coves and beaches, perfect for a stroll or family day on the beach.

There is plenty to do in the surrounding area, with a fantastic links golf course only five minutes' away in Morfa Bychan, beautiful sandy beaches, and Porthmadog with its harbour and three steam railways can be reached by driving or along the coastal walk path.

A short drive away is the superb Italianate village and gardens of Portmeirion, which is well worth a visit.

Further afield, all the attractions within and around the Snowdonia National Park are easily reached, including many CADW heritage sites and historic castles; for the more adventurous there is Zip World Titan with its zip wires and the mountain biking centre at Coed-Y-Brenin.

This wonderful cottage will provide you with an ideal base to explore the delights of the area with your family and friends, any time of the year.

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.
