You will feel on top of the world staying at this beautifully prepared cottage in the hills above Porthmadog. The views are breath-taking from this sensitively converted detached farm building.

Situated 2 miles from the small village of Prenteg, 3.5 miles from the village inns and shops at Tremadog and 4.5 miles from the harbour town of Porthmadog, it has everything close by whilst being a great bolt hole to relax in and watch the world go by.

The local beaches are sandy and numerous, Borth y Gest bay is the closest with a lovely coastal foot path through Black Rock Sands to the more cobbled beach at Criccieth.
