About the property

Porthmadog 1.1 miles.

Resting within striking distance of the Snowdonia mountain range and the Cambrian coastline is this delightful terrace property, Maenllwyd, situated near the harbour town of Porthmadog.

This heart-warming hideaway has been designed with a family in mind, ideal for those seeking a traditional coastal getaway to this part of North Wales.

Upon entering the property be welcomed into the sitting room, boasting a real home-from-home ambiance.

During the winter months the woodburning stove offers a sense of comfort as you sink into the sofa to tune into the TV or unwind with a good book in hand.

Joining the sitting area is the well-presented dining table where you and your loved ones can gather to enjoy a home-cooked meal that was prepared within the well-equipped kitchen.

Move into the kitchen where you will find everything you could possibly need to cater for yourself during a week-long break.

As the evening draws to a close, venture up the staircase to find two well-presented bedrooms, comprising of a double bedroom and a bunk bedroom.

Each bedroom enjoys a refreshing ambiance and ample storage and space to house your personal belongings.

To the outside of the property there is a wonderfully kept garden, where during a summer’s afternoon a spot of alfresco dining can be enjoyed as you soak up the final glimpses of sunshine.

If you don’t feel like cooking one evening however, a short car journey will bring you to the bustling town of Porthmadog where you will be delighted to find a vast array of amenities to suit all ages and tastes.

For days out whilst staying here, head to the picturesque Italianate village of Portmeirion or brush up on the local history by spending time within Harlech with its medieval castle or soak up the sun at the beach.

The bustling harbour town of Porthmadog lies on the Glaslyn Estuary and enjoys a stunning setting. The gateway to the Snowdonia National Park, Porthmadog is full of individual shops and restaurants, and home to the Ffestiniog Railway, where you can travel by steam through spectacular Snowdonia scenery, to Blaenau Ffestiniog. The pretty village of Borth Y Gest, with its cliffs and coves, is a short walk or drive from the town. The well known and unique Italianate village of Portmeirion is just down the coast. Situated on a rugged clifftop on its own private peninsula, Portmeirion, famous as the location of the TV show The Prisoner and the final episode of Cold Feet, is surrounded by miles of sandy beaches and woodlands. The area also boasts castles at Criccieth and Harlech, and superb unspoilt beaches such as Black Rock Sands, where the sands stretch as far as the eye can see. Also within reach is the famous Zip World Slate Caverns and Bounce Below where you can get involved with a variety of activities including the thrilling zip wires and underground caverns to explore; there is something here to suit the whole family.
