    “Loved this spacious quirky property.”

    Great parking outside the house. Kitchen well fitted out, although a larger refrigerator would be helpful for a place of this size. Beds were comfy, bedrooms large and upstairs shower hot and fierce. Living area was varied and comfortable, kitchen/diner well used. Having loads of towel rails was appreciated. Hope to return in the future.

The property

Brimming with character and charm, this wonderful holiday cottage is just like stepping back in time!

Built in the early 1800s by William Maddox, founder of Porthmadog, Morfa Lodge was originally the old coach house & stable block for the nearby manor house and was on the map before Porthmadog itself as we know it! "An absolute gingerbread cottage, this former Coach House is full of charm and character, a five minute stroll to Porthmadog's harbour, bustling town and Welsh Highland Railway." With antique furniture (the dresser with intricate carvings in the sitting room are believed to be a dowry from 1806) & stunning woodwork, all hand built by the owner's father, a master carpenter, you will feel immersed in history. If you are looking for quirky, old and interesting then this is just the house for you!

Just a five-minute walk from Porthmadog's harbour and bustling town with a selection of shops, restaurants, pubs and the Welsh Highland Railway, you will find plenty to do and see, whatever the weather!

About the location

PORTHMADOG

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.

Note: This is an old property, quirky with wobbly walls & bags of character - may not suit people who enjoy the clean lines of modern properties. Pillows are feather, synthetic pillows can be provided, please request at the time of booking.
