  • "A very comfortable stay in a location ideally suited for the railway, with a great view over the harbour and the range of locomotives coaling just below the balcony."

    In spite of the variable weather we had a great time and enjoyed our week very much. Will recommend to friends!

    Howard, your review is very kind. Glad you had a good week and thank you for putting up with the outside painting. Much appreciated. Best wishes Ed Property Owner

  • "This property is fantastic, really clean, brilliant position, close to all amenities and because the living area is upstairs you have a great balcony overlooking the harbour directly in front of you and Ffestiniog steam railway to the side."

    We had an amazing holiday and would definitely book this accommodation again if staying in Porthmadog. If it was rated by stars we’d give it a five, couldn’t fault it at all.

    Janice , thanks so much for the review. Very much hope to welcome you back soon. Best wishes Ed Property Owner

  • "Brilliant cottage in a fantastic location you can sit on the balcony watch the harbour and listen to the trains perfect."

    everything is in walking distance, it's a very quiet pleasant cottage. we felt so comfortable there, we said if we had won the lottery we would have made a offer to buy it. I can't recommend this cottage enough. It's a 5 star cottage in a perfect location. We will definitely be returning next year. Another bonus with the property is the owner Edward is a perfect gentleman.

    Graham, Thanks so much for your kind words and very pleased you had a good stay. Looking forward to welcoming you back soon. Happy retirement! Property Owner

    Superbly located overlooking harbour and Ffestiniog railway, and convenient for town centre. Everything was very clean and tidy on our arrival, and the whole property is well maintained. We would love to return.

  • "Comfortable for two people as small, but perfectly adequate and cosy (We were there in February during high winds and rain and snow on the mountains!"

    ).Good location on the edge of town overlooking the harbour giving a great view from the sitting area.Located a few yards from a small tidal estuary a great area to walk around if you are interested in birds.Also close to coastal walking and inland, mountain walking.Harlech not far away for castle visiting, or the Llyn peninsula, or inland to the higher Snowdonia mountains.Good to have a parking space too (as last time we visited a different property with no parking we found it difficult to park in the town).Oven a bit complicated to work out so just used the hob

    Thank you very much for your review. Hope to welcome you back again soon. Property Owner

    the provision of a torch would be advantageous.

    Rubbish around the front doorstep not the best view Windows not very clean mattress protecter not very clean Poor tv selection

    Thank you for your feedback. With regard to the mattress protector and the condition outside the front door a call to me ( as I requested on the contact email and info sheet) on arrival would have had these items resolved in short time. I apologise that standards were not met. With regard to the tv selection, basic freeview is offered. Property Owner

  • "We would liked to have had somewhere to dry our clothes as we got soaked a couple of times."

    We had to leave them hanging around the apartment. An airier would have been useful. Also a waste paper basket would have been useful in the bedroom. Apart from that the apartment was very comfortable and we had an enjoyable time visiting lots of places within easy access of Portmadog. We would definitely go back sometime in the future.

    Thank you for your feedback. There has now been a substantial heated towel rail added to the new bathroom. This will provide more than adequate clothes drying facilities. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and thank you again for your valuable feedback. Property Owner

About the location


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