About 1117 - The Quarterdeck, Borth y Gest
STS Grade: 4
As you sit in the lounge of this house enjoying the views you may think you are enjoying your evening drink on the quarter of a yacht overlooking Borth y Gest bay. This Victorian terraced house is close to the sea front and has beautiful elevated views of the bay and Snowdonia mountains from the lounge and external decking. Decorated in a stylish contemporary manner with wooden floors in the living areas and furnished with a mixture of older furniture matching the period of the house, it is a comfortable place to spend a holiday in this quiet seaside village just outside Porthmadog. The excellent state of the art kitchen/diner and two bathrooms makes this a very suitable holiday property for an extended family. There are lovely coastal walks to many sandy beaches and covers nearby, and there is a small playground, village shop, tea room and restaurant within a few minutes walk. In Porthmadog you will be spoilt for choice in shops, restaurants etc. Steam trains travel across the causeway regularly to the delight of young and old alike, a leisure centre is located at the other end of town. Portmeirion village is just a 3 mile walk across the causeway. Cricieth town and castle are 5 mls, Snowdon/Beddgelert village are a beautiful 20 minute drive away.
