Mariners ahoy! Sit back and take in the views from this stunning 1st floor apartment located at the front of the harbour overlooking Borth y Gest's ever changing bay. Recently refurbished, this apartment has all the makings to making it a perfect break away for the family, including a secret snug for the kids to get away from the chit chat of the grown-ups, who will be guaranteed to be sitting in front of the large, newly-expanded front window, perfect for you to drink in the stunning views of the bay and the mountains beyond. Watch out, it's very more-ish!
This large semi detached house on the bay has been modified into two apartments; Anchor Deck (ref. 1150) occupying the ground floor and Topsail (this apartment) occupying the first and second floor. Both apartments have their own separate access.
Around the headland and within easy walking distance are other sandy beaches and coves. Further along are Porthmadog (1 mile), a harbour town with many restaurants, cafes, shops, leisure centre and the Ffestiniog Railway, Welsh Highland steam railways. Snowdon and Beddgelert are just 8 miles away, Portmeirion Italianate styled village (3 miles), and Cricieth (7 miles). Harlech, a World Heritage Site with its majestic castle, stands 10 miles away. Enjoyable local walks include the summit of Moel y Gest. All in all, it is a great destination for a family wanting to explore the delights of Snowdonia.

Guest Feedback:

Mrs C (August 2019): Good "really could do with a washing machine in place of the dish washer - being so close to the beach, wet dirty clothes and towels are difficult to wash without putting them in the shower!"
Mrs W (April, 2019): Excellent "This property is the best we have stayed in at Borth-y-gest and we have been for many years. It was so nicely done out, very well equipped and we loved it. Would definitely recommend and would choose to return."
Mr & Mrs D (July, 2017): "Everyone in the visitor's book has written comments, and we totally agree! Excellent property, excellent views and handy position for travelling around. Clean and well kept. Thank you!"
Mrs F (May 2017): "We have just returned from our holiday at Top Sail in Borth y Gest. It was our second stay there and we enjoyed it just as much as last time. In fact we would like to book it again for next year."
Miss H (April, 2016): "I hate leaving this place.  The house is absolutely gorgeous.  Please pass on our thanks to the owners - we've had such a lovely time."
