  • "We took the apartment as an alternative because Sykes cancelled our original booking in Porthmadog the day before we were to take possession of it for a week."

    You provided three alternatives, none of which were in Porthmadog. This particular apartment was some 30 minutes drive away. There was a beach in LLanbedrog 12 minutes walk away and 45 minute uphill walk back! Quite a trek carrying beach equipment! Lovely on the one sunny day we had though. I don’t like to have to drive when on holiday but was forced to as we wanted to visit Portmeirion a short walk from Porthmadog. The property itself was an attic conversation. It was very nicely done with plenty of room and comfortable beds. The TV was much too complicated! All we wanted to do was turn it on without fiddling with several remotes. Three flights of stairs kept us fit I suppose! We didn’t use the en-suite, or at least only in an emergency, as the macerator toilet was scary! The main bathroom had a dream of a drench shower, however and a beautifully deep bath. We needed a step ladder to operate the windows and happily found one in a cupboard. On arrival storm Betty was raging and the roof windows had been left open, so we had a bit of a flood to clean up and seating to dry with a couple of hair dryers. Also the kitchen tap leaks unless it is turned to cold when shut off - another flood to clean up! Walking was nice to Abersoch and to Pwllheli but taxis back were very expensive, £15 for 4 miles, and hard to come by. We tended to travel to Pwllheli where we could get a train to travel to Barmouth and beyond, so all was not lost.

    Dear Clare, Thank you for taking the time to feedback. I’m sorry your original property was cancelled at short notice. Maintenance duly noted. I would recommend using the National Trust car park by the beach if the walk proves to be too much. Details of the web link for local buses to Abersoch are detailed in the property manual. I sincerely hope that you had a lovely holiday. Property Owner

The property

Nestled in the beautiful village of Llanbedrog in Gwynedd, Gorwel Glas is the perfect family-friendly and pet-friendly getaway.

With distant sea views, a cinema screen, a dishwasher and a welcoming interior, this penthouse apartment has everything for a fun family holiday, something special with friends or an escape with your four-legged friend.

With countryside views Llyn Peninsula and Snowdonia including Carnedfol and Foel Fawr, and sea views of Cardigan Bay towards Abersoch and Pwllheli, which can be enjoyed from two of three bedrooms and the dining room, when gathering for a family dinner, Gorwel Glas encompasses you in your destination, settling you in to your new home-from-home.

With three bedrooms, a king-size with an en-suite with a shower and macerating WC and smart TV, a king-size with a TV and accompanying standard Blu-Ray DVD player, and a twin ideal for children, everyone will have a place to call their own; some of the bedrooms boast stunning exposed beams, providing a sense of history and charm to Gorwel Glas.

The bathroom is a place of luxury, boasting a freestanding bath and power shower, perfect for relaxing after a long day of exploring the local area.

Continue into the open-plan living space, where you can cook up a storm in the well-equipped kitchen, ready to be enjoyed over a bottle of wine at the dining table for six.

As the night draws in, cosy up on the L-shape sofa while catching up on your favourite shows on the Smart TV, get competitive with a game on the XBOX, or indulge with snacks and stick on a DVD to enjoy on the cinema screen.

For a quintessential day on the Welsh coast, take a wander to the nearby sheltered National Trust beach, Llanbedrog, a dog-friendly beach located just a short walk away, which offers pet treats of dog ice cream & dog sausages, as well as ice cream for kids, or perhaps try your hand at paddleboarding on warmer days, or for those brave enough some open water swimming .

Once you’ve had your fill of sandcastle building, why not take advantage of the two family-friendly pubs in the area, both boasting plenty of good grub.

If you’d rather dine in, the local store has you covered with all of your essentials, or, for something a little special, why not try the local, family-run bistro?

Ideally positioned with coast and country, you can find an abundance of walking routes, whether you prefer the challenging crags of Eyri (Snowdonia) National Park, or the soft sands of the coastal paths, there's a trail for everyone.

Continue your explorations by travelling to Tremfan Hall, just around the corner, for a glimpse of the ancient Welsh culture, or take a tour of Plas Glyn y Weddw arts centre and tea rooms.

Take a short drive to Abersoch beach for sailing and other water sports, Port Neigwl for surfing and Pwllheli to explore the magnificent sights of the Llyn Peninsula with its thrilling outdoor activities, beautiful beaches and stunning scenery, all waiting to be discovered.

Your escape to Wales starts at Gorwel Glas.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
