The property

Overlooking lovely views of the Porthmadog harbour is a well-presented first-floor apartment, resting on a tranquil residential area, with the bustling town centre in reach.

The Oakleys is an ideal resting base for a group of four or small families to relish in the delights of the Welsh coast.

Enter into a stunning apartment building, making your way up a flight of stairs to the first floor as you feel welcomed by this homely flat, boasting two charming bedrooms and an open-plan living area.

After a day of adventure, settle down in the snug lounge area, cosying up on one of the plush sofas as the Smart TV entertains you, or open the lovely french doors and sit and enjoy watching beautiful sunsets over the harbour whilst enjoying a well earned drink after a day exploring.

Let the chef of the group take charge as they prepare a delicious home-cooked meal in the amply-equipped kitchen, boasting contemporary amenities and access to a fabulous Juliette balcony.

Meals can be enjoyed on the intimate dining table, as you look out towards the far-reaching coastline with a glass of wine in hand.

Choose between two welcoming bedrooms, a master king-size and a twin room, both offering ample storage and access to a sleek family shower room, with a sumptuous walk-in shower to prepare for the day ahead.

The excitement of Porthmadog town centre is right on the property's doorstep, take a stroll into the wide range of shops, pubs, cafés and restaurants, offering everything you need for a self-catered stay, all in walking distance.

Visit the world's oldest narrow gauge dating back 200 years at the Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Steam Railways, a 13½-mile voyage from Porthmadog harbour to the slate-quarrying town of Blaenau Ffestiniog, travelling over awe-inspiring views of Snowdonia throughout coastlines, mountains, woodland and castles.

Enjoy a fun-filled day at Black Rock Sands, a unique beach which has been named a Site of Special Scientific Interest, or spend a day meandering throughout Borth-y-Gest village centre, with easy access to ancient castles at Criccieth, Harlech and Caernarfon.

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.
