Bwthyn Llechen is a holiday apartment in a pretty, Grade II listed building nestled in the quiet back streets of Porthmadog on the Llŷn Peninsula.
Formerly the Slate Wharf manager's house for the Oakeley quarry at Ffestiniog, it has now been carefully converted, retaining its fine exterior, into a relaxing, contemporary, spacious holiday apartment all on one level (great for wobbly knees and hips!).
If you are keen to reduce your carbon footprint you can arrive by train or bicycle and have masses to do from here without needing a car.
Porthmadog is home to the Ffestiniog Railways - hop on a train and visit the slate mines at Llechwedd, travelling through some stunning scenery, or take a Sherpa bus to the foot of Snowdon, going through the pretty village of Beddgelert.
Good cafes and restaurants are all within walking distance - try Hen Fecws!
Discover wonderful beaches at Black Rock Sands and pretty coves and bays around the harbour at Borth Y Gest.
This apartment is a delight and in the most convenient central location.
There is parking for two cars, too.
A fabulous place to stay whilst on holiday in North Wales!
All ground floor. Two bedrooms: 1 x double, 1 x twin. Bathroom with bath, shower over, basin and WC. Kitchen with dining area. Sitting room with electric flame-effect stove.
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. An ideal location for the attractions of Snowdonia and the The Lleyn Peninsula.
