  • “Excellent family holiday.”
    Excellent family holiday. Unfortunately the weather wasn't very good for June but there was plenty to keep us occupied and entertained around the area. A beautiful location with stunning scenery.

The property

A superbly located, double-fronted seaside terraced cottage enjoying delightful Tremadog Bay views, in the heart of the coastal village of Borth-y-Gest, close to Porthmadog in North Wales.

In one of the most enviable locations in the village, overlooking the beach and moorings, this beautiful cottage has been updated and improved by the current owners to offer a charming property for families.

This welcoming cottage offers a long through lounge with an open coal fire, sea views and two separate seating areas, along with access through the rear porch and onto an attractive enclosed lawned garden.

The well-equipped kitchen has a lovely dining area with feature fireplace and bay window, as well as a snug seating area, making it a great place for socialising due to its open plan feel.

Upstairs are four welcoming bedrooms, two with stunning sea views, along with a bathroom and a shower room.

Enjoy a morning coffee and newspapers on the front patio whilst watching the village and bay wake up, then in the evening dine alfresco in the rear lawned garden.

A delightful coastal path leads into Porthmadog, just fifteen 15 minutes' walk away, or stroll round the headland towards Black Rock Sands and discover fantastic empty coves and secluded beaches along the way.

Short journeys from this cottage will take you to castles, golf courses, water parks, the beautiful Snowdonia National Park, and so much more.

An excellent cottage for exploring this part of North Wales.

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.
