    “We have stayed at Oakfield previously and are always wowed by the location and views.”

    Just park your car up and enjoy walking everywhere for the week. Easy to walk into Porthmadog and to numerous beaches even with a 4 year old. Good facilities, kitchen equipment and a nice new shower. ...

    Just park your car up and enjoy walking everywhere for the week. Easy to walk into Porthmadog and to numerous beaches even with a 4 year old. Good facilities, kitchen equipment and a nice new shower. On arrival the house had numerous large and dusty cobwebs , I know that there had been at least 2 families in before us after COVID lockdown. The dishwasher also needed a good clean and needs a run with a dish washer cleaner. There were shards of glass in the hall from the last occupants which I had to pick up ( they appeared to have broken wine glasses as they were stacked in the recycling box) . However I did find it gross to find a used contact lenses on the bedside cabinet especially as I would of thought that the cleaning regime had been stepped up due to Covid19. So fab holiday but cleaning of property does need more attention.

The property

Oakfield is a bright and comfortable holiday house close to the pretty sandy beach of Borth y Gest.

The charming original features have been combined with carefully chosen soft furnishings. The well-equipped kitchen has a split-level electric oven and hob, combination microwave oven, free standing fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine/dryer. The large, open plan sitting room enjoys views of Moel y Gest.

Comfy sofas are set either side of a multi-fuel stove which adds warmth on cooler evenings.

At the far end is a dining area with a large oak farmhouse table and chairs. The second sitting room is great for children, or for those wanting a little peace and quiet!

It is furnished with comfy sofas, decorative fireplace, Smart TV and a large selection of books and games. There is a cloakroom on the ground floor under the stairs with a loo and wash hand basin - beware of the limited headroom! There are four bedrooms.

At the front, the two double rooms have impressive views over Moel y Gest.

The single bedroom and large twin room overlook the terraced garden.

All have original Victorian fireplaces (not working) and carefully chosen soft furnishings. The bathroom has a shower over the bath, wash hand basin and loo. A door from the kitchen leads up steep steps to a terraced garden with table and chairs where you can relax with a drink, or enjoy coffee with the morning papers.

The front patio also has a couple of benches to enjoy the lovely views. This is a fantastic, peaceful location.

It's just a short walk down to the bay, where you'll find the village tearoom and restaurant.

This corner of North Wales has some of the most breathtaking scenery in the United Kingdom, and you'll find plenty of good restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets! There are some fantastic attractions just a short drive away.

Wander around the Italianate village of Portmeirion, or climb to the top of Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales and England.

About the location

PORTHMADOG

Harlech 5 miles; Caernarfon 19 miles.

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. An ideal location for the attractions of Snowdonia and the The Lleyn Peninsula.
