    “Habourside is well located to ...”
    Habourside is well located to explore North Wales and is a clean and well equipped flat, in a reasonably quiet location. We managed to park for free everyday with no problem. We would definitely stay here again.

The property

A welcoming duplex apartment, close to the harbour in the old part of Porthmadog, set away from the hustle and bustle of the main high street but within a short stroll of shops, pubs, tea rooms and restaurants.

The apartment is a great base and ideal for couples, friends and families wishing to relax and explore the treasures on offer along this beautiful coastline of North Wales.

The apartment is well appointed, and is decorated and furnished in a homely style, providing everything you need for a comfortable stay, whether a short break or longer.

The modern first floor kitchen is well equipped, and has a comfortable dining area, a sociable space for those leisurely breakfasts and late suppers.

The second floor sitting room is spacious and light with a pleasant outlook out over the town towards the distant mountain peaks of Snowdonia.

There is comfy seating for everyone to relax and unwind after a busy day, and a warming electric fire for chillier evenings.

The main bedroom is spacious and benefits from a king-size bed, while the second bedroom is ideal for another couple but with the single bunk bed above it also makes it a great room for children.

With the beach, harbour and town just a short walk away, this property makes a perfect place to stay.

All the amenities of this historic seaside port are on the doorstep - visit the craft and souvenir shops, excellent restaurants, tea rooms and inns, stroll along the coast to the famous Black Rock Sands beach, or to visit the pretty village of Borth-y-Gest.

Nearby attractions include the world-famous Ffestiniog narrow gauge steam train, only a five-minute walk from the apartment, so all aboard to travel 13.5 miles through some of the most dramatic scenery the area has to offer.

Visit Llechwedd Slate Caverns, which is now also the home of Zip World Titan, the longest four-man zip wire in Europe, as well as Bounce Below, an underground trampoline, and Antur Stiniog Mountain Bike centre with its various downhill trails.

The Italianate village of Portmeirion is also only two miles away.

This delightful apartment is an ideal retreat to be enjoyed all year round.

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.
