    “We enjoyed our stay .”

    The house was very dusty and needed a deep clean . The seal around the shower was not very clean it could have done with a good bleach . The dryer part of the washing machine didn’t work

    - Rhiannon, September 2023

    Thanks for your feedback Rhiannon, we’re glad that you enjoyed your stay. Regarding the issues you had, we do wish that you had got in touch during your holiday, which would’ve given us the opportunity to address them while you were there. The cleaner usually does a great job (witnessed in our overall 92% cleanliness score), so we will investigate this. We regularly use a bleach cleaning spray on the shower seal, it will be renewed over the winter. Thanks for letting me know about the dryer, that has now been repaired. Property Owner

About the location


Porthmadog 1.2 miles; Criccieth 6 miles.

Borth-y-Gest is a quiet Welsh seaside village of mainly Victorian houses retaining much charm and character. Located by the mouth of the River Glaslyn, and a short drive away from the Italian styled village of Portmeirion, this pretty Welsh village has stunning panoramic views over the sands and estuary to the historic Harlech Castle and the Snowdonia National Park beyond. This North Wales village has two bistros and a coffee lounge all located on the front overlooking the bay and all with dog-friendly outdoor seating areas; perfect places to while away the hours watching the comings and goings of the local boatmen. Borth-y-Gest, with its sheltered coves and sandy beaches, has walking in abundance; why not head up Moel-y-Gest or take a wander over the headland to the famous Black Rock Sands, or go a little further afield where the vast Snowdonia National Park awaits? For a day out you can take a trip on the famous Ffestiniog Steam Railway and Welsh Highland Railway from Porthmadog, only a 15 minutes' walk away, or for those with younger children why not visit the shorter but more child-focussed Welsh Highland Heritage Railway? For a day trip the entire Llyn Peninsula calls. With Anglesey within reach and the whole North Wales coast with the Wales Coast Path to be explored, Borth-y-Gest has it all: a quiet bolt hole but conveniently located for ease of access to this stunning area, a must at any time of the year.

Note: The Garden is not enclosed and rolls directly onto the communal green
Note: Two well-behaved dogs welcome with a £20 charge for the 1st dog.
