  • Melanie

    “The property was beautiful full original features.”

    The furnishings & decor were tasteful & well thought out. It has everything you need for a comfortable stay & in a great location. The bed was outstanding!! Slept like a log. The downside : it all needs doing up!! The decoration is more than tired in some places, the shower needs serious attention as water runs everywhere, we did try to be careful but the screen is not adequate. The house could have been cleaner, lots of cobwebs & dirty skirting boards.

The property

Oakfield is a bright, comfortable and contemporary holiday house close to the pretty little bay and sandy beach of Borth y Gest.

Inside, some charming original features have been combined with carefully chosen soft furnishings. Sit on the Veranda or soak up the view of Moel Y Gest or wander down to the water's edge at Borth Y Gest.

The original charm of this splendid houses combines well with the bright interior. This is a fantastic, peaceful location.

It's just a short stroll down to the bay, where you'll find the village tearoom and restaurant.

This corner of Wales has some of the most breathtaking scenery in the United Kingdom, and you'll find plenty of good restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets! Many of North Wales' best attractions are just a short drive away.

Wander around the Italianate village of Portmeirion, or tackle the slopes of Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales and England.

You can ride on the newly extended Welsh Highland Railway, which runs to Caernarfon through picturesque Aberglaslyn, or relax on the wonderful sandy beach of Black Rock Sands.

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 and the Welsh Highland railway where you can travel by steam through spectacular Snowdonia scenery, to Blaenau Ffestiniog or Caerforn . 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.
