    “We had a lovely stay at St Agnes.”

    You really cannot beat the location and the view. This is truly a gem of a property with a view that you would never tire of seeing. We did however feel that the following facilities within the cottage needed to be updated to provide greater comfort. ...

    You really cannot beat the location and the view. This is truly a gem of a property with a view that you would never tire of seeing. We did however feel that the following facilities within the cottage needed to be updated to provide greater comfort. 1. New sofa in the living room - it really wasn’t comfy and was too small being a tiny 2 seater and I ended up going to bed early each night just to get comfy. 2. The dishwasher was all rusty inside and the top draw runner was broken and was difficult to close. Toaster also broken. 3. The beds had so many layers of duvets and mattress protectors under the fitted sheet to clearly make them comfier but really they just need replacing with a decent mattress. 4. Sun lounger in the garden is broken and has had repair but it broke again whilst we were there. 5. There is no 4G or WIFI at the property. This makes it difficult to plan days out or watch movies at night. Also I had some work I needed to do and wasn’t able since there was no connection. I had to drive to Tesco carpark to get decent 4G signal. Whilst it’s nice to not have mobile phones on the go whilst on holiday it would have made a big difference to us if WIFI were available. Just an observation is that the stairs from the ground floor to the 2 floors below are difficult for anyone over 5ft5inch since you would need to bend down to avoid hitting your head. The top 2 floors had decent head clearance but the bottom 2 floors were difficult for my husband (6ft4) who hit his head quite a few times. We loved: 1. the view from the bifold doors/kitchen 2. The new Bae Birth deli cafe bar opposite 3. Water pressure was good and the shower was brilliant. 4. Relaxing in the roll top bath looking out to sea 5. The coastal walks from the doorstep 6. Swimming in the bay when the tide is in 7. The garden with its own kitchen (quiet, sun all day) 8. The shops in Porthmadog 9. The Golden Fleece for food in Tremadog 10. Mountainous Walks around Beddgelert and Moel y Gest

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!).

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. 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.

About the location


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.
