A minute's stroll from beautiful beaches and secret coves is 'Pump Cottage' in the heart of Borth y Gest. Built c1865, this small seaside terraced house has been in the family for a few generations and they invite you to share in their joy of Borth y Gest. Original features such as a brick hearth and traditional cottage furniture gives an authentic 'oldie-worldie' feel, however, a modern bathroom and kitchen has been fitted for guests' convenience.  A 'suntrap' slate patio leads from the kitchen from where you have privacy to enjoy the sun. A separate elevated garden is set out with patio furniture for outdoor eating. Coastal walks from the house pass a small nature reserve, oak woodlands and lovely sandy coves. Borth y Gest is one mile from Porthmadog, where the Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railway station and Portmeirion also close at hand as are the mountains of Snowdonia, the village of Beddgelert as well as Harlech and Cricieth castles.

The cottage is well equipped with all you could need and we made use of eating outside in the rear garden. Best of all the peace and quiet. All 4 of us agreed that the beds were really comfortable too and the bath / shower lovely too. We would definately recommend."
