The sandy beaches of Borth-y-Gest and Blackrock sands approximately 1 mile, the Italianate village of Portmeirion, 2 miles and the Snowdonia National Park just short drive away.
This two story Porthmadog property has an open plan sitting/dining room/kitchen situated on the first floor, with a balcony to relax on and enjoy the views. This beamed area is light and airy with a leather three piece suite, side tables and a flatscreen TV/DVD/Freeview, a pine table and benches and a cream coloured fitted kitchen. On the ground floor the double bedroom has fantastic views over the harbour. There is also a compact twin bedroom with one full sized single bed and another 2'6'' bed, and a modern bathroom with an electric shower over the bath. Heating by electric storage and panel heaters.
This property could be accessed relatively easily by public transport and once here there is plenty to do within walking distance.

Within half an hour's drive you can be exploring the coastal paths of the Lleyn Peninsula or the mountains and lakes of the Snowdonia National Park with mountain walking, rock climbing, kayaking and cycling or just travelling around sightseeing.

Steam trains are good. Photos of view from the balcony do not do it justice, it is a lovely situation but does not look so good in the photo.Mr Hennessy - 6th October 2016

What a lovely place to stay! The location is ideal, plenty of nice places to eat near by, places like Llanberis, Beddgelert, Caernarfon, Anglesey and Bangor are all a reasonable drive away.
