I apologise if you found the parking an issue, we Ensure that the parking arrangements are clearly advertised on the property listing to ensure that it’s suitable for the guests that are booking.

    It was in an ideal location for both Porthmadog and surrounding areas and attractions If I could make one negative comment it would be the quality of the mattresses in the single bed room both would benefit to being replaced as not very comfortable but this did not spoil our stay

    Everything was perfect, the bed was huge and very comfortable. The owner checked on us several times as we were there during Strom Eunice. It's situated a stone's throw from the main Street but tucked away in a private gated area near the harbour. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again, in fact I tried to book it last night but it wasn't available for dates I needed.

  • "I read reviews prior to booking 6 The Oakleys- as I do when I make any booking."

    I booked this cottage due to the owner accepting dogs. The cottage has excellent positioning within the town of Porthmadog, even Tescos are the far end of town is within walking distance should you wish. If you like to support local business the pub The Australia is a very quick minute or two away and serves locally made brews by The Purple Moose, chocolate moose stout is stunning. The cottage was well equipped and the heating system was superb - wonderful when coming back following a cold and bracing hike or walk along the local Black Rock Sands beach. Gas hob and electric fan oven, the cottage has a good supply of cooking implements. There is a fridge freezer and the washing machine was an added bonus. Did I mention quiet? this place was so quiet- absolutely perfect. There is car parking for cottages inside the electric gated complex- however, for number 6 the parking is actually outside the gates meaning you would need to drive in, unload and then park outside- definitely not a deal breaker. Would I recommend? absolutely, Would I return? already planning my next trip.

  • "Had a really enjoyable stay here."

    Accommodation was nicely decorated, spacious and generally clean (some dust behind the dressing table). Good quality towels and bedding. The Welsh cakes in the welcome pack were delicious! Excellent location, very quiet but minutes away from Porthmadog high street with shops, pubs and restaurants and Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland railway station close by. Had originally planned to bring our dog, however after booking we discovered pets are not allowed to be left unattended at the property at any time. With an older dog, this didn't really work for us as don't think she would have wanted to be out all the time (especially in the hot weather) so decided against bringing her. Some local attractions dont permit dogs eg Snowdonia mountain railway and Port Merion.

  • "The apartment was lovely and really comfortable and Mum and I enjoyed staying and would happily go back without the dog."

    However, whilst the apartment allows dogs there was no secure outside space for early morning and night time 'tinkles'. The photograph of the gated area is slightly misleading (hence the accuracy of listing score) as it appears that the patio area is gated and you could let your dog out without a lead on for a late night tinkle, so I wouldn't consider the property really dog friendly as getting dressed at 2 in the morning to take the dog out for a walk in the pouring rain wasn't very restful!! Mum (had her 81st birthday here) particularly loved that everything was on one level and she loved the spacious bathroom and the comfy beds and the good lighting so she could do her knitting! The apartment itself is situated right on the harbor and very close to the train station and I found three walks for my dog Jimbo locally. Porthmadog itself is very centrally situated for all the day trips out and we managed not to get lost once! Shame about the weather but Snowdonia looked magnificent iced with snow. We found the locals to be friendly and everyone in the shops that were open were chatty but not pushy. A very enjoyable week in Porthmadog.

    We had a couple of problems making electrical items work. We needed help to find the oven worked only when the timer was switched ont and we did not guess that the DVD player red light went off when the player was switched on nor could we guess which TV source linked to the DVD player! We have always found it helpful when an owner has left a brief summery of how things work! However, when the WiFi stopped the owners son was able to re-start it. Thanks.

Enter through French doors into a well-appointed open plan living area, which includes a fitted kitchen with solid slate worktops and warm cherry units, a cosy dining area and a lovely sitting area with comfy seating and high ceilings.

The Italian village and gardens of Portmeirion are only a 5 minute drive away and well worth a visit, and the coastal towns of Harlech and Criccieth, with their medieval Castles are both reached within 20 minutes.
