STS Grade 3

Once inside this historic cottage, you cannot fail to be impressed by both the superb bird's eye views overlooking the harbour, Glaslyn valley & Snowdonia mountains and the cottage interior, which is most comfortably prepared in a contemporary style. The bay windows frame the mountain panorama and you will be hard pressed to leave it. It is only a short walk down 'Grisiau Mawr' (Big Stairs) to the harbour and on to Porthmadog for excellent shopping and eating, leisure centre, steam train rides and museums. The village of Borth y Gest is just half a mile walk away with its harbour side cafes and numerous sandy coves along the Welsh Coastal Path. The stunning sandy beaches at Black Rock Sands and Samson's Bay are 2 miles away, Snowdonia mountains are as close as 5 miles away, Beddgelert and Snowdon 7 miles and Cricieth and its castle 3 miles. Favourite attractions locally include Portmeirion village and gardens and the steam trains of the Ffestiniog Railway. Zip World and Bounce Below adrenaline rush adventures in Blaenau Ffestiniog, 15mls up the valley.
