Artist's Cottage PORTHMADOG Porthmadog, North Wales, Wales
Additional Location Information
Snowdonia is a National park in North Wales which occupies most of the county of Gwynedd. It is mountainous unspoiled countryside which has the longest coastline of any of the U.K. national parks. In Snowdonia you have the highest mountains in England and Wales, a multitude of lakes and rivers and the most stunning coastline which is rugged and exciting, or sandy and relaxing. We say you are never far from anywhere in Snowdonia. From the beach to the foot of Snowdon is about 9 miles of jaw dropping scenery. There are a lot of castles and steam trains, country houses and gardens. There is a rich Welsh heritage tradition of slate and copper mining and mountain sheep farming in the area. Here is still spoken the old 'British' language of our forefathers. Welsh is spoken openly in the shops and the streets. Everyone is bilingual by now and we are a welcoming nation, but we will want to know your business before you leave as friends.
Porthmadog is an old harbour town in sheltered Tremadog Bay from where tall sailing ships carried slate around the world. The only remnanat of this are the steam trains of the Ffestiniog Railway which still travel trielessly up the Snowdonia valleys, it's slate cargo exchanged for passengers who stare wide eyed at the beauty of what passes infront of them. Portmeirion was the extravogant dream of an architect who found a sheltered piece of land near Porthmadog and gradually built it up to look like Port Fino in Italy. Prisoner Fans will recognise it straight away. The many award winning beaches are sandy and easy to get to. We boast a fantastic coastal footpath all round Wales now, and Porthmadog area has some of the best parts. There is the freedom to roam all the mountains with well marked footpaths and shuttle buses. Excellent mountain biking trails through the forests, a bird watchers paradise and nature on the doorstep.

Scenic beauty is so much in reach from within the cottage that you don't have to travel. We spent a lot of peaceful time sitting in conservatory appreciating the beauty. Wonderful stay. Might come back later in the year. Read more
