Garreg Goch Holiday Cottages are a pair of semi detached 19th century stone built cottages situated in a quiet lane in the popular village of Morfa Bychan on the edge of the famous Black Rock Sands, just 2.5 miles from the harbour town of Porthmadog. They have been modernised in recent years to a high standard with the addition of double glazing and central heating. The gardens have been revamped this year.
They are approached down a private tarmac roadway which then leads onto a gravel driveway to No2 with parking for cars. From the gravelled driveway, an entrance gate opens (down a small step) onto a slate paved patio which leads you to the front door or the side 'Double French Doors'; both of these entrances have the normal UPVC 'door step'. Access to the rear of the property is from the slate patio, across the gravel area onto the rear paved patio and through the double French doors which have no step.
