    “Very good and quick booking process despite a last minute request.”

    Even when unfortunately builders arrived to do some drilling / maintenance on the wider block Sykes went out their way to sort / resolve ASAP.

The property

This stunning ground floor apartment is situated in a Grade II listed building in the old harbour part of Porthmadog, in North Wales.

Part of an old corn mill this apartment offers first-class accommodation for couples, a small family or friends looking to enjoy a coastal break away.

Step back in time as you enter The Captain's Bank, appropriately named, as this apartment was once the old smugglers bank and is steeped in maritime history.

Beautifully renovated to a high standard you can't help but be impressed with the fusion of the modern and contemporary interior with character attributes such as exposed stonework.

The open-plan living area offers a well-equipped kitchen, together with a contemporary dining area which are raised above the sitting area which is comfortably furnished with cream coloured custom-made Chesterfield leather sofas; the perfect place to relax after a busy day of exploring.

The two bedrooms are well-appointed and both have their own TVs and an en-suite shower room.

The double bedroom also has a walk in dressing area and the main master bedroom boasts a king-size bed and its shower room boasts whitewashed exposed stone walls with a fantastic accent wall of 3D slate and arched vault ceiling accommodating the large shower rain head and in a smaller separate section you'll find the WC and basin with the old wall safe as a feature.

The Captain's Bank is entitled to use the shared decked courtyard which is accessed via 41 steps, the view over the harbour is well worth the climb!

This is shared with the apartment owner's three other holiday apartments.

The decked garden has some wonderful elevated views and there are sun loungers and a barbecue area for you to enjoy.

The apartment is superbly placed to enjoy the town's eclectic mix of independent shops, galleries, restaurants, pubs and tea rooms, along with some of North Wales' best attractions on the doorstep, the world famous Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland steam railways, and just a couple of miles away the Italianate village and gardens of Portmeirion.

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