    “Lovely little cottage.”

    The views from the windows were to die for The only problem was that instead of banisters on 2 sets of stairs there was thick rope which was quite slack and we found it difficult going up and down. Also there was only one shower and that was in the top bedroom . There was baths on the other 2 floors so maybe be instead of that another shower would be better. There was no kettle in the downstairs kitchen but the owner when asked about it ordered a kettle and it was delivered the next ...

There was no kettle in the downstairs kitchen but the owner when asked about it ordered a kettle and it was delivered the next day. Overall we had a very good stay and would recommend for young persons as being a lots of stairs .

The property

What a fabulous holiday cottage!

St Agnes stands in the most stunning location and every room enjoys breathtaking views along the coastline and across the bay to Cnicht, ‘the Welsh Matterhorn'.

So much care and thought has gone into the refurbishment of this delightful terraced house. "We love Borth y Gest - St Agnes looks across the pretty little bay with some wonderful beaches just round the corner." A short stroll takes you to a delightful sandy cove, known locally by some as ‘Sian's Cove' (Sian owns St Agnes!).

If you own a paddle board, kayak or sailing dinghy the garden is close to the slip way.

Borth Y Guest has a good restaurant and a lovely cafe on the front.

A short drive or a reasonable walk away is Porthmadog, which has interesting shops and galleries, and restaurants - try Yr Hen Fecws or The Ship.

You can ride on the Welsh Highland and Ffestiniog Railways, or venture into the mountains of Snowdonia.

The costal path is on the door step and there are three golf links close by.

Ideal location for Fishing enthusiasts. Whether it is early morning or the end of a busy day it is so relaxing to watch the ebb and flow of the tide in this pretty half moon bay.

Note: There is no allocated parking for St Agnes but there is a car park nearby.
Note: Near by car park- Free in winter (31st October to 1st March)

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

About the location

BORTH-Y-GEST

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: This property may not be suitable for those with mobility issues, as the stairs are steep and over four floors. Loos are Saniflow, specific instructions will be in the house where appropriate.
Unless requested, all beds will be made up as kings sized.
Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250
