New listing, June 2018
Friday - Friday
Unforgettable views will spell bound you from the windows of this 2nd floor split level apartment on the beach front in the seaside town of Barmouth. High enough to see way into the distance down the Cambrian coast and the Cader Idris mountains above Llwyngwril. A recent conversion of The Victoria Hotel on Marine Parade, it is fully insulated for energy and sound to the highest standards and has lift access. Just 60m to the beautiful sandy beach and sand dunes and a short stroll to the shops and restaurants in the town. 250m from the railway station on the Cambrian Coast line. The property is mostly on 1 level and offers 2 en-suite bedrooms and a large living room with a fully functional kitchen. The second bedroom is six steps lower than the rest of the flat. Barmouth has many returning guests that enjoy the stunning Snowdonia Mountain scenery around the Mawddach estuary. A variety of eating places locally from fine dining to award-winning fish and chips on the promenade. An eclectic collection of shops to investigate within the old historic town. Excellent cycle routes and footpaths. Our favourite is the Mawddach trail crossing over the iconic Barmouth rail bridge to the George III for a spot of liquid lunch or a drive to Cregennan Lakes and Cader Idris. Visit Harlech castle, Porthmadog steam trains and Portmeirion Italianate village all within 20 miles, or historic Dolgellau town and Torrent Falls only 10 miles away. Excellent accommodation in a fantastic location with beautiful views.

Mr B. (Dec 2019): "Modern, clean and excellent facilities. Decorated for Christmas and wonderful welcome pack, especially Christmassy!"
Mrs S (November 2019): "Apartment lovely, views stunning."
Mrs W (July 2019): "The flat was ideally situated, renovated to a high standard, exceptional property. I have recommended this flat to family and friends already."
Mrs S (July 2019): "Beautiful apartment ,lovely sea view, very well equipped had great holiday"
Mrs H (June 2019): "Lovely flat. Thank you very much indeed."
Mr P (June 2019): "A lovely well appointed apartment with good sea views. Had a chat with the owner, who came across as a very nice person"
K & H (June 2019): "To repeat again - a most well appointed apartment and very well maintained. Even the soggy weather did not stop us enjoying the holiday. We agree the Bank and Bistro Bermo restaurants are both very good. For fresh seafood The Lobster Pot. Thank you."
Mrs F (June 2019): "The apartment was larger than we had imagined. The view of the beach was excellent and the apartment was fitted with everything we needed, as well as thoughtful little extras such as a sewing kit, foil and cling film. The whole place was clean, attractive and convenient. Sadly, the stairs running down to the second bedroom mean that we will not be able to come next year when my grandson will be learning to walk."
S & G (May, 2019): "We couldn't have asked for more in our week away. Wall to wall sunshine. Lovely, lovely apartment. There was nothing it didn't have. We had a great trip on the Ffestiniog railyway to Porthmadog and back with lovely views of the countryside. The choice of restaurants in Barmouth was impressive. The Bank was the best, we ate there twice! Bistro Bermo was very good, needs to be booked in advance. The Anchor cooked beautiful steak. The Last Inn - don't be fooled, this was no ordinary pub grub - I've run out of space but it was a great week."
Mrs W (May, 2019): "It was beautifully furnished, it was clean, had everything we needed, comfortable beds and a great location."
A, G, M & L (April, 2019): "This apartment is spectacular, everything about this place is beautiful. I enjoyed staying here very much. M, Aged 10 I really enjoyed it, I wish I could stay longer. L, Aged 8 Thanks for a lovely long weekend. The apartment is fabulous!"
C, M & C (March, 2019): "Enjoyed a relaxing week away in a lovely apartment. Even a wet and windy day doesn't seem that bad when looking at it from the front window! We found everything we needed plus a bitmore and would recommend the apart to anyone seeking a relaxing time away from home. The best time here was had by Chester, our dog, who loves running among the sand dunes and playing on the beach. If the ongoing refurbishment ends up like the current apartment then this is going to be a very popular place to come to as word is going to get around. So we hope your future guests enjoy it as much as we have. Thanks for a lovely week!"
Mrs C (February, 2019): "Home from home, everything you could wish for, a credit to the owners, even down to a hairdryer. Having a lift to the apartment was superb and very secure. Loved the decor the paintings on the walls, the little touches of lanterns, bird and shells. Views from the apartment were lovely, watching the dogs playing in the dunes, the snow on the hills, the work men removing the sand which the winter storms had brought in. A great base to visit nearby castles and beaches. All in all a great holiday. Would highly recommend."
