  • “Enjoyed week at Plas Mor very lucky the weather was lovely.”

    The stairs to garden were very steep my small dog had to be carried she was so frightened of them.

    The stairs to garden were very steep my small dog had to be carried she was so frightened of them. We found a pair of shoes left under the bed by previous occupant which is off putting that he cleaner had not checked when cleaning. Otherwise the facilities were good.

The property

Situated on Borth y Gest's pretty harbour, Plas Mor is an idyllic holiday house with stunning views across the estuary to Cnicht, the mountain known as the Welsh Matterhorn.

When renovating this cottage, the owners went to great lengths to ensure that it meets their own requirements for a holiday home, and they have chosen high quality furnishings to complement the spacious and bright interior. The entrance hall has plenty of space for coats and boots. With a pretty bay window and original stripped floorboards, the lovely open plan sitting room is a blend of old and new.

The deep, comfy sofas make this a great place for relaxing. An oriel window in the kitchen gives fantastic views across the bay.

The kitchen is well equipped with gas hob, double oven, fridge with freezer compartment, dishwasher, washer/dryer and microwave.

It is furnished with a dining table and chairs.

There is even a birdwatcher's spotter scope for you to enjoy the views and watch the wildlife. There is a downstairs loo with a superb view! Upstairs are two bedrooms.

The first is a double room furnished in a chic New England style to complement its view across the bay.

This room has an en-suite shower room with loo, wash basin and a little window overlooking the sea.

The second bedroom is a large twin-bedded room.

There is a large luxury bathroom with walk-in shower and old fashioned fittings, a loo, wash basin and double-ended roll-top bath. The small garden is adjacent to the harbour.

It is a lovely place to sit and relax. There is no allocated parking but there is a car park nearby. Borth y Gest has a popular restaurant and cafe, both with stunning views.

Within walking distance are several beautiful sandy coves which lead to the gorgeous Black Rock Sands beach.

This is also a great location from which to explore Snowdonia, or you could visit Portmeirion and ride on the Welsh Highland Railway.

About the location


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.
