  • "I have stayed there before, and would happily do so again."

    The only negative is the limited parking.

  • "We was fine with it being a studio flat as we normally in a motor home xx but it was so uncomfortable my friend slept in the floor."

    The toilet roll was very cheap and only one we had to go and buy our own. Couldn't fault anything else

  • "Situated perfectly, off road parking a bonus."

    Views were great but most of the time there was a car or van parked outside window so no view which was disapointing. Only one bath and one hand towel each for the week so had to buy some towels this was a first for us. One very cheap and nasty toilet roll, only one saucepan. The main problem was the sofa bed having to struggle to put mattress topper on as quite heavy, such a hassle so just left bed made up all the time . The owner should really invest in a good quality sofa bed which would make peoples stay a lot easier.

  • "Having read some reviews we were a little concerned about the sleeping arrangements."

    The sofa bed now has a good quality mattress topper so the bed was comfortable, for the older traveller the bed is a little difficult to get in and out of. The situation of the property is right on the harbour and the off road parking is good. A word of warning if you have a bigger car take a wide run at the entrance as we managed to scrape the side of our car on the first attempt!

  • "Lovely little apartment in an excellent location, right on the water front."

    Pleasantly furnished. Had practically everything we needed, and all appliances worked. Great shower, and bed was comfortable, once we’d set it up. If you’re visiting, you might want to take a shaving adapter and an ice cube tray.

  • "The Sofa Bed should be advertised as such and should be in our opinion made up not packed away as the first thing anyone has to do is make up the bed ready for the evening a better intinery would be a proper bed a two seater sofa and a smaller table and chairs the cottage is only for two people anyway, also anyone that's going take some toilet paper as the one roll of the cheapest one provided will only last a short period."

    The location is very good for all amenities

  • "Great stay at Cornhill Courtyard, sofa bed very comfortable, kitchen had all we needed apart from a private chef."

    Very quiet at night, off street parking a boon, ideally situated for shops and a good base for exploring this part of Wales and all it has to offer. Would strongly recommend this apartment, superb for us two and our black lab Thea. Thank you for the experience

  • "We appreciate during these trying times that your resources may be stretched however we did not feel comforted that our holiday (that we booked before the pandemic) would actually go ahead."

    When we logged into to try and change the dates we were not able to do so and we felt your guidance on the website was somewhat lacking in clarity. The emails we received from you prior to our holiday were contradictory and confusing. We contacted the key holder directly for more clarification. The apartment itself was in a fantastic location which was easy to find. We appreciated the parking spot too. The people staying in the apartment above us (also part of your collection) were extremely noisy, especially during the evenings. We could hear every single step, their conversations and their tv. They might not have been aware of how loud they were being so perhaps a polite notice would benefit future guests. The washing machine in the kitchen needs properly securing as it migrated across the floor when in use. We had to push it back several times.

The property

Cornhill Courtyard is a quirky and fun holiday apartment in Porthmadog, a popular harbour town in North Wales.

A romantic retreat sleeping two, this is a wonderful ground-floor holiday apartment in an amazing location, overlooking the harbour.

Spacious and bright inside, it’s a relaxing environment for your tranquil retreat, and just a short walk from pubs, shops and steam trains, you’re in easy reach of all of the delights that the town has to offer.

Offering a studio layout, the living and sleeping space is all open-plan and overlooks the gorgeous harbour, with the textured walls adding interest and the large corner sofa providing comfort both when sitting and relaxing and when doubling up as a plush sofa bed in the evening!

Within the open-plan living space you can also find a dining area where you can enjoy your home-cooked meals prepared in the well-equipped kitchen just off of the room, accompanied by a marvellous flat screen TV with Freeview, DVD, CD and bluetooth speaker in this room for all of your evening entertainment.

The shower room is tiled throughout and fitted with Italian porcelain, providing you with a gleaming spot to prepare for your fun-filled day ahead.

Located in a quiet and attractive cobbled section of Porthmadog Harbour known as Pen Cei which translates as ‘head of the quay', the local area is a stunning base to explore the hidden gems of the area.

Porthmadog itself has an interesting mix of shops, galleries, restaurants and pubs, along with some of North Wales' best attractions, most notably are the Welsh Highland and Ffestiniog Railways, which you can find right on your doorstep!

Choose to take a stroll along the famous Cob walk, or venture to the Afon Glaslyn which will bring you down to the sea where you can soak in the sun and enjoy the breath-taking mountains of Snowdonia as a backdrop.

With the popular Italianate village of Portmeirion within reach by car too, Cornmill Cottage makes a delightful base for exploring this exciting area of North Wales.

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 and the Welsh Highland railway where you can travel by steam through spectacular Snowdonia scenery, to Blaenau Ffestiniog or Caerforn . 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.
