The property

Porthmadog 1.1 miles.

Set within striking distance of the majestic Snowdonia National Park and the glorious North Wales coastline is this elegantly presented terrace property, Maenllwyd.

This wonderful accommodation is ideal for a family seeking to explore all of the delights that this part of Wales has to offer, equipped with everything you could possibly need to enjoy a self-catered break.

Here, you will find two well-presented bedrooms comprising of a double bedroom and a bunk bedroom, both of which enjoy a refreshing interior design and ample space to house your personal belongings.

Of an evening, gather your loved ones within the sitting room, where you can tune into the TV whilst the woodburning stove offers a sense of comfort during the winter months.

Beyond here is the well-equipped kitchen which promises to fulfil your culinary needs to prepare a delicious home-cooked meal for the whole family.

During the summer months, venture out to the rear garden where a spot of alfresco dining can be enjoyed or indulge in a glass of fizz as you catch the sun setting.

If you can tear yourself away from this wonderful base, head to the town of Porthmadog where a magnitude of amenities awaits you to cater to every taste and requirement.

To keep you busy whilst here, a short car journey will bring you to the wonderful Italianate village of Portmeirion, where you can enjoy the quaint cafés and explore the gardens before heading to the beach.

Slightly further is the town of Harlech where you will find another sandy beach which is overlooked by the medieval castle, in addition to all of the outdoor attractions found within the Snowdonia National Park.

Maenllwyd promises a wonderful retreat for the entire family to this part of Wales.

About the location


Harlech 5 miles; Caernarfon 19 miles.

The bustling harbour town of Porthmadog lies on the Glaslyn Estuary and enjoys a stunning setting. The gateway to the Snowdonia National Park, Porthmadog is full of individual shops and restaurants, and home to the Ffestiniog Railway, where you can travel by steam through spectacular Snowdonia scenery, to Blaenau Ffestiniog. The pretty village of Borth Y Gest, with its cliffs and coves, is a short walk or drive from the town. The well known and unique Italianate village of Portmeirion is just down the coast. Situated on a rugged clifftop on its own private peninsula, Portmeirion, famous as the location of the TV show The Prisoner and the final episode of Cold Feet, is surrounded by miles of sandy beaches and woodlands. The area also boasts castles at Criccieth and Harlech, and superb unspoilt beaches such as Black Rock Sands, where the sands stretch as far as the eye can see. Also within reach is the famous Zip World Slate Caverns and Bounce Below where you can get involved with a variety of activities including the thrilling zip wires and underground caverns to explore; there is something here to suit the whole family. An ideal location for the attractions of Snowdonia and the The Lleyn Peninsula.
