Region: Famous for its choirs, stunning mountain ranges and beautiful valleys, this wonderful country has something for everyone. From Snowdonia in North Wales to the Brecon Beacons and the Pembrokeshire Coast in the South.
Town: The pretty village of Borth Y Gest, with its cliffs and coves, is a short drive from the town of Porthmadog. The well known and unique Italienate village of Portmeirion is just down the coast. Situated on a rugged cliff top on its own private peninsula, Portmeirion, famous as the location of the TV show The Prisoner and the final episode of Cold Feet, is surrounded by miles of sandy beaches and woodlands. The area also boasts castles at Criccieth and Harlech, and superb unspoilt beaches such as Black Rock Sands, where the sands stretch as far as the eye can see. An ideal location for the attractions of Snowdonia and the The Lleyn Peninsula.

A lovely private and quiet place to stay if you don't mind being a bit off the beaten track. Kitchen a bit basic but other comforts more than made up for it. If you want to walk the local area there wasn't much specific information on hand.
great location ...

Lovely little cottage well kitted out - doesnt feel like the owner has just put leftover utensils etc there
Great little wood and garden for dog to roam in first thing in morning and last thing at night.
Car picked up a rodent though which ate through some wires one night!

The cottage was gorgeous & is in a truely beautiful setting. Everything you could need & more is provided & the owners were there to meet me despite it being dark & thrashing down with rain! I was more than surprised by how clean the cottage was & despite going on my own with just my dog I felt very safe throughout my stay. The owners didn't keep popping in on me although I knew they were nearby if I did need anything. A really lovely holiday which I plan to repeat, thank you!
Comfortable cottage in a superb location.

Clear and simple booking procedure.
Once found the cottage was clean, well equipped
The resident owner was most helpful and friendly.
The least liked aspect was having to leave at the end of the week.

myself and my husband really enjoyed our stay.We are thinking of returning for a short break again next year. It is the perfect place to have a peaceful stay.The cottage was warm and well equipt. We enjoyed the peaceful surroundings and as it was only a 5 minute drive away from Portmadog, so we could go shopping or eat out without a lot of fuss. We would recommend a visit to anyone wanting a retreat.
