    Our grandson left his favourite cuddly toy in the apartment. As soon as we realised this we contacted Sykes and Amy was empathetic and very helpful.

The views from the living room were spectacular even on rainy days and the colours on the mountains were never the same on any two days. On the Saturday evening we had an added bonus of not one but two firework displays. Never found out what it was all about.

The property

A beautiful third and fourth floor apartment, full of charm and character occupying an excellent position within this historic Grade II listed building, which dates back to the early 1800s and formed part of the original cobbled harbour in the town of Porthmadog.

This lovely boutique penthouse enjoys some superb and uninterrupted views over the picturesque Porthmadog harbour, encompassing the estuary, mountains and the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Steam Railways and will appeal to energetic couples, friends or a family who love the outdoors and want to be centrally located with the beach and many of the attractions the Snowdonia National Park has to offer.

Fully refurbished this apartment is well insulated to ensure a warm and cosy environment.

Accessed via 36 external stone steps this wonderful apartment is worth the climb and you will be rewarded once inside with some stunning views from most rooms and a stylish and tasteful interior with a fresh, nautical theme with one or two quirky attributes which compliment this wonderful holiday apartment.

The Penthouse has been lovingly refurbished by the owners and all your needs have been catered for to ensure you have a wonderful holiday and have some great memories to take away with you.

Arranged on one floor when you enter the apartment is a super modern and funky kitchen which extends to a light, bright dining area, wonderful for social gatherings or a sophisticated soirée.

The two well-appointed bedrooms, each have a TV and boast exposed stonework and the master has a king-size bed and stunning harbour views.

The family bathroom which services the whole apartment makes a real statement with 3D slate tiles, a double-ended bath, heated mirror to prevent fogging, and a separate shower cubicle.

Upstairs is a relaxing and welcoming sitting room with wonderful bespoke Chesterfield sofas, a warming woodburning stove and the hammock hanging from the beams allows you to lie down and gently sway reading a book.

Gaze out from the wonderful bi-fold dormer windows which open up the whole length of the room so you can take in the most magnificent view and enjoy the sea breeze on balmy summer evenings.

Just off the sitting room is the third bedroom – accessed by stepping over one of the heavy oak roof timbers which forms the ‘A’ frame of the apartment’s roof.

The apartment has direct access on to the decked courtyard which has some wonderful elevated views, there are sun loungers and a BBQ area for you to enjoy.

The apartment is superbly placed to enjoy the town’s array of independent shops, galleries, restaurants, pubs and tea rooms.

There are some lovely walks and the gentle stroll up the road, which runs high behind the apartment, takes you to the pretty little village of Borth-y-Gest and along the coast to Black Rock Sands.

The children will love crabbing off the harbour wall, crazy golf in the park or for something completely different, why not try llama trekking?

Some of North Wales’ best attractions are within easy reach, the world famous Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland steam railways, and just a couple of miles away the Italianate village and gardens of Portmeirion.

Take a day to explore the historic castles at Criccieth, Harlech and Caernarfon or discover the Llyn Peninsula, the many watersports opportunities at Abersoch, and the quaint fishing village of Aberdaron.

This is a truly lovely apartment and provides a great base anytime of the year.

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.
