Previously known as Spacious Apartment

Guests return again and again to this lovely flat which has views over the narrow gauge steam railway station and the immediate foreshore. Larger than most South Snowdon Wharf apartments after being converted from a two bedroom duplex apartment to one bedroom and a fully functional seperated kitchen. Comfortably prepared, it has a large lounge and balcony. Occupying two floors (the first and second) it is in a quiet location just five minutes walk to Porthmadog town centre and next door to the famous Ffestiniog Railway narrow gauge steam train station. Access to the front door via a flight of external stairs. It is only a short walk to the local shops, restaurants and leisure centre from the apartment. The station for the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland steam railways is right outside from where you can enjoy a sedate journey through the Vale of Ffestiniog or the Aberglaslyn pass or just sit on the balcony watching the comings and goings on the platform. This is a good central location for a holiday property in North Wales. Easy access to sandy beaches at Borth y Gest (15 minute walk) and Morfa Bychan's Black Rock Sands (2 mls), Snowdon and the pretty village of Beddgelert are 7 miles.
