The property

Hyfrydle, a wonderful, four-bedroom mid-terrace home situated in the tranquil setting of Borth-y-Gest near Porthmadog in North Wales.

For a group or family of six, Hyfrydle is an ideal North Wales holiday home, with a private, enclosed elevated terrace from which you can view the mountain peaks above the roof.

The location is ideal, as it is just a short walk from the harbour and Borth-y-Gest beach.

The first of two sitting rooms, complete with soft sofas and a flat-screen TV with Freesat, awaits you as you enter the house, where you can curl up and watch a movie with your loved ones.

Relax in the second of two sitting rooms, which has a TV with Freesat and a gas fire for added warmth or if you'd prefer a quiet moment or to watch something different, retire to the second sitting room also well-equipped with a TV with Sky.

The budding chef of the group will have all they need to whip up culinary delights in the well-equipped kitchen/diner, which also houses a dishwasher and washing machine, ideal for keeping your space tidy!

Settle down at the dining table for six to savour a delicious meal, or if the weather is nice, why not dine alfresco out on the private first-floor terrace as you savour the last of the day’s sunshine?

As your eyes grow heavy, retreat inside where you will find four well-appointed bedrooms on the first floor, two doubles and two singles, each with plenty of storage for your belongings.

Awake from a restful night and indulge in a soothing soak in the bath or revitalising shower, before rustling up a steaming cup of coffee ready to enjoy on the front terrace.

You and your family can enjoy a day of family-friendly activity in Borth-y-Gest and Morfa Bychan beaches, where you can relax on the sand, stroll along the coastal path, or make sandcastles with the children.

The Black Rock Llama attraction is just a short drive away, where you can take llama treks over the undulating Welsh hills, ensuring a memorable day!

For those nights when you don't feel like cooking, Hyfrydle's Moorings Bistro and Seaview Café Bistro & Coffee Lounge are just a short walk away.

If you're in the mood for an old-fashioned train ride, head to Porthmadog, where you can ride on the Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railways or the Welsh Highland Heritage Railway.

Porthmadog's Maritime Museum is also located in the town's beautiful harbour, making it a great place to learn more about the town's rich past.

Take a trip into Eryri (Snowdonia) National Park and you'll find Blaenau Ffestiniog, which is home to the Zip World activity centre and Bounce Below, where you can have a fun-filled day with your family.

There are numerous hiking and walking trails to choose from, as well as the stunning Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon) Peak for those who are more daring!

Hyfrydle is a great place to stay no matter how you want to spend your time in North Wales.

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.
