The property

Situated on a tranquil street in Borth-y-Gest, and close to a gorgeous beach, is this charming cottage, making it the ideal property for a family retreat.

Inside is a nicely decorated beach-themed, open plan living/dining room made bright with dual aspect windows.

After an action packed day look forward to sinking into the modern sofas and flicking on the TV to enjoy a relaxing evening with your loved ones.

Alternatively, sit around the dining table to discuss the next day’s activities or beach day, whilst eating a delicious home cooked meal prepared by the chef of the day.

A perfect place to whip up a Saturday morning breakfast or a Sunday roast, the kitchen is fitted with all the amenities you may need, including a gas hob and electric oven, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine.

The ground floor also hosts a convenient shower room where you can wash off any unwanted sand after a day at the beach.

Retreat to the back garden and make the most of the outdoor seating for when you feel like dining alfresco on a warm day or challenge your family to a competitive game of ping pong table on the outdoor table.

As the evening draws to a close, retire to one of the charming bedrooms, a king-size room adorned with lovely purple decor, and a twin, both with large bright windows.

Unwind in the nicely decorated family bathroom as you soak and relax in a warm bubble bath before bedtime.

On the second floor is another twin room, featuring sloped ceilings, traditional wooden beams and a stunning skylight, adding character to this homely dwelling.

The centre of Borth Y Gest, just a short walk away with its bobbing boats and golden sands is perfect for some sandcastle building, a peaceful walk along the Wales Coastal Path or lunch in one of the village’s cafes or Moorings restaurant.

If you can tear yourself away from this wonderful retreat, why not head into Porthmadog, a bustling harbour town, where an array of pubs, eateries and shops await you.

Visit the town's Maritime Museum, a great way to spend an afternoon, or take a ride on one of the steam railway lines.

The Ffestiniog Railway or Welsh Highland Railway will transport you through the breath-taking Welsh scenery.

The Italianate style village of Portmeirion, built by Clough Williams-Ellis, is just over four miles away, and is home to some amazing architecture and sub-tropical gardens.

Snowdonia National Park is also within close distance and is great for walkers and cyclists with its many trails up Snowdon.

For those looking to explore some of the area’s historic sites, why not visit Caernarfon or Harlech Castle.

The more adventurous will not want to miss a day out at Zip World Slate Caverns and Bounce Below, an unique experience for all ages as you discover the underground caves and take part in the thrilling activities.

Bryn Hyfryd is an outstanding base for exploring all that this beautiful part of North Wales has to offer.
