STS Reference Number: 1086
STS Grade: 3+

When you stay at this beautiful detached beach house above the pretty village of Borth y Gest, you can enjoy a stroll along this coastline of outstanding natural beauty. Sea views from the front rooms and the beach just 100 metres from the front door of this comfortable Art Deco influenced detached house will make this an enjoyable holiday destination. Situated in an elevated position in its own terraced grounds it enjoys amazing sea and mountain views and the pleasant woodland walk down to the sandy beach is a delight. Comfortably furnished in a style contemporary to the house with antique and period furniture and located within five minutes walk to the village, which has a restaurant and tea room. Excellent walks from the doorstep along the coastal footpath to Black Rock sands (fifteen miles) or to Porthmadog along the wharf (fifteen minutes). A favourite is the walk up the local mountain door to door all on footpaths and through wood lands. For those who want to explore North Wales, Snowdonia is only five miles away (Snowdon eight miles), the Lleyn Peninsula (Abersoch is twenty miles), Anglesey (twenty-three miles), Llandudno and the North Wales coast (forty-five miles) through stunning scenery. Local attractions include Ffestiniog Railway from Porthmadog (one mile), Cricieth castle and beach (five miles) and Portmeirion 'village' (three miles).

Guest Feedback:
Mr T: "We rented Beach House, Borth y Gest and had a very good week in an interesting house that I would recommend to anyone. We couldn't help but admire and enjoy the ever changing views from the property and its garden. From opening the curtains in the morning we would notice the light and the state of the tide. It certainly has position x3. Thanks for helping have a much needed week away."
