About the property

Perched on the coast in Porthmadog is this fabulous apartment, The Sail Loft.

Sleeping up to six, the stunning Grade II listed building's penthouse apartment has been completely refurbished and totally transformed by professional interior designers to provide an amazing holiday apartment.

From the minute you walk through the front door into the broad entrance hall with large storage areas, you instantly get the 'wow factor' from the highlighted original character features and contemporary coastal twist running throughout.

As you climb up the open tread staircase you are welcomed into a plush open plan "loft style" living area.

The lounge area is carefully crafted around a beautiful wood burning stove and Smart TV, perfect for cosying up with your group, while the dining table takes centre stage in the window where you can enjoy those ever changing breathtaking views morning, noon and night.

The beautifully crafted fitted kitchen is divided from the main living area by the stunning original open gable A-frame; the space incorporates all the latest must-haves, such as: high quality appliances, integrated fridge drawers and Quartz stone worktops, all of this is sure to delight the chef in the group!

In the evening, head to bed in one of three excellent bedrooms with king-size beds and ample built-in storage; the master bedroom on the front benefits from stunning views overlooking the harbour below and distant mountain range of Snowdon.

There is a beautiful main shower room off the hallway and the master bedroom has the benefit of a separate en-suite cloakroom.

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

Porthmadog itself is handily stocked with excellent pubs and restaurants, cafes and shops and is a fantastic base for exploring the area; the harbour is just a short walk away and is overlooked by a flourish of lovely spots to grab a bite to eat while you're watching the boats sail in and out.

Travel to the seaside resort of Harlech and bask in the sun on its soft sands, tour the glorious Harlech Castle, before experiencing Harlech's 'Coffee Culture' and stopping in Y Maes Café for sweet treats along with sea view dining.

Travel a little further to Caernarfon where history fans will enjoy touring the town walls and the 13th Century fortress of Caernarfon Castle, strolling through the delightful Coed Cadnant forest, or watching the sunset at Doc Fictoria.

For more to do, visit the awe-inspiring Snowdonia National Park, the perfect spot for keen walkers and cyclists, or board the Welsh Heritage Steam Engine that runs through the Welsh Highlands and visit the numerous attractions on the line!

Bring your friends and family for a memorable holiday to The Sail Loft.

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.
