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 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 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.
