    “Nice clean cottage, location perfect .”

    Good support bed. Smart furnishings. Only small size tv (no problem for us though!).

The property

This delightful, traditional stone-built terraced cottage is set in the heart of the delightful seaside village of Borth-y-Gest on the Llyn Peninsula in North Wales.

Originally built around 1850 for the harbour workers in Porthmadog, this Borth-y-Gest cottage is ideal for a peaceful family holiday.

This Borth-y-Gest cottage provides comfortable accommodation, with quirky features such as sloping floors in the bedrooms, acquired from many years of history.

There is a door off the kitchen leading to steep steps up to a patio and grassed area where you can sit, relax and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of life in this delightful village.

There are sandy beaches just a short walk from this Borth-y-Gest cottage, footpaths through ancient woodland and miles of unspoilt coastline, whilst the famous Black Rock Sands can be reached along the coastal paths.

This Borth-y-Gest cottage is a great base for walking, birdwatching, cycling, golf, exploring ancient castles and historic properties, and sightseeing, or just lazing on the beach in this picturesque area of North Wales.

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.
