STS Grade: 4

With its superb bird's eye views overlooking the harbour, Glaslyn estuary and the Snowdonia mountains, 'Crow's Nest' is a comfortable well-furnished apartment occupying the entire top floor of a period house. It has its own access up a single flight of external stairs from the attractive shared rear garden and is discretely private. It's only a five minute walk down the hill into Porthmadog and its historic harbour for excellent shops, cafes, steam train rides and maritime museum. It takes a little longer to walk back up the hill to the apartment. A 15 minute walk along in front of the house takes you to Borth y Gest half a mile away, with it's harbour, cafes and beautiful sandy coves reached along the coastal path beyond the village. The vast sandy beaches at Morfa Bychan's Black Rock Sands and the crescent sands of Samson's Bay are 2 miles away. Snowdonia mountains are as close as 5ml, Beddgelert and Snowdon (7ml), Cricieth Castle (3ml). The famous Italianate village of Portmeirion with it's and gardens, beaches and woodland walks is just two miles away. There is a good leisure centre on the other side of the town, near Tesco, with a swimming pool, tennis, badminton, squash courts and a cafe. The apartment has uninterrupted views down to the steam train station and you can sit and watch the trains crossing the Cob on their journey up to Ffestiniog. The Highland Railway is fully restored for a highly scenic journey to Beddgelert, through the spectacular Aberglaslyn Gorge and on up to Caernarfon. This is a good central location for a holiday property in North Wales.
