A very comfortable, beachside first floor apartment in the pretty seaside village a mile from Porthmadog. Unrestricted view of the sea and mountains from the living room and kitchen diner. Relax with a glass of wine and watch as the tide trickles slowly into the small crescent bay. The living room and open plan kitchen and dining room are on the same floor as two of the three bedrooms, as is the bathroom. The third bedroom is on the ground floor (useful for an elderly relative) with WC and hand wash basin next door. Borth y Gest is a tranquil village where there is no through traffic and its more discerning visitors just come here to relax and enjoy the coastal walks and beautiful scenery. Around the headland and within easy walking distance are other sandy beaches and coves. Meticulously prepared with your comfort in mind, this fine property is guaranteed to give you an excellent and most enjoyable holiday. The village has a tea room, coffee shop (recommended!) and two Bistros and an old fashioned petrol station/garage. From the doorstep there are excellent views, cliff and coastal walks as well as plenty of hill walking. Playground for the children and a nature reserve. Across the tidal bay and estuary is Portmeirion peninsula, Harlech castle and the majestic Snowdonia mountains. Beddgelert and Snowdon are 8 miles away. This is a great central location for a holiday property in North Wales.
