New listing, July 2017

This beautifully prepared duplex apartment on the High Street in Porthmadog offers a family or a group of friends a comfortable, spacious centrally located location for exploring the lakes and mountains of Snowdonia and the Llyn Peninsula coastline.  Occupying the first and second floor of what used to be a small hotel there is a lovely kitchen, stunning bathroom and a large comfortable lounge to relax in. Situated within walking distance to the harbour and over the way from the park in Porthmadog there are plenty of places to eat and drink on the doorstep. You can even walk to Borth y Gest in 20 minutes and eat in one of the cafes and bistro on the bay there. Borth y Gest is the nearest beach or a short drive is the 3 mile long sandy Black Rock Sands. 'Steamy trains' are abound in Porthmadog with the Heritige Railway and the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railways with routes from Porthmadog up to Snowdonia stopping at villages such as Beddgelert en-route. Snowdon is 12 miles from Porthmadog with narrow roads winding it's way through stunning countryside and river gorges. Local attractions include the Italianate village of Portmeirion (2 miles), Cricieth and Harlech Castles (5 and 12 miles), Zip World in the Ffestiniog Valley (15 miles) and Coed y Brenin mountian biking centre near Dolgellau (30 minute drive). Bodnant Gardens in the Conwy valley is worth the 40 minute drive around Snowdon visiting Swallow Falls and Betws y Coed on the way - highly recommended!
