Guests are overjoyed with the location of this private quayside development, five minutes walk from the town centre and the famous Ffestiniog Railway steam train station. It's a rather special villa with westerly views across the harbour mouth and Ballast island. The living room, which includes a new galley kitchen, and twin bedroom occupy the whole of the 1st floor; an additional two bedrooms and shower room are on the ground floor. All bedrooms have the same waterside view. Enjoy peaceful scenes from the balcony as the cormorant waits for a passing meal, swallows skim across the water and the grey mullet just below the surface makes ripples on the calm water. Just the place to relax and sit with a pair of binoculars. This is a good central location for a holiday property in North Wales. Easy access to sandy beaches at Borth y Gest 15 min walk and Morfa Bychan's Black Rock Sands (2 mls). Snowdon and the pretty village of Beddgelert are 7 miles. Portmeirion village, prestigious hotel and gardens are 2 miles. Cricieth, Caernarfon, Harlech are just a few of the castles in the area.
