Harbour Villa, PorthmadogRef: 1036
Situated overlooking Porthmadog harbour with views of the bobbing boats and swans is this homely prepared ground and first floor apartment where every consideration has been given to the holiday makers comfort. One of a few duplex apartments on South Snowdon Wharf with a spacious double fronted living room up stairs and the two bedrooms and shower room downstairs. Of interest is the occasional passing Ffestiniog Railway steam engine as it crosses the causeway and heads up the wooded Ffestiniog valley. It is in a superb spot in the residential part of the town, just a short (10 min) walk to the shops, inns, restaurants, quay side, playground, leisure centre, cinema and train stations. From the windows at the front of the house, views across the harbour. Excellent local sandy beaches at Borth y Gest (1ml by car or 10 min. walk) and Black Rock Sands (2ml). A popular central location for a relaxing holiday combining sandy beaches, walking up hills and mountains or just visiting Snowdonia's landmarks and attractions, especially the Ffestiniog Railway and Portmeirion village and gardens.
