  • “This is a lovely lodge house which is much larger than it looks in the photos on the website.”

    We arrived on a cold wet afternoon but were given a warm welcome by the property owner who showed us around the house. The house is well equipped and the new mattress which had arrived the week previous was extremely comfortable. The icing on the cake for us was the grand piano in the lounge which had recently been tuned. The kitchen is very modern but if you don’t fancy cooking there are plenty of nice restaurants and bistros within a short drive and in the summer months with fine weather ...

    We arrived on a cold wet afternoon but were given a warm welcome by the property owner who showed us around the house. The house is well equipped and the new mattress which had arrived the week previous was extremely comfortable. The icing on the cake for us was the grand piano in the lounge which had recently been tuned. The kitchen is very modern but if you don’t fancy cooking there are plenty of nice restaurants and bistros within a short drive and in the summer months with fine weather not too far to walk to. Surrounded by trees and with stunning views from most of the windows it is a very relaxing house to spend time in. The only negative comment I could make is that there was no Wi-Fi so make sure you have plenty of data on your mobile phone before you go. We managed to get a 4G signal on O2 most of the time and there is a good selection of tourist leaflets in the property for you to browse through and plan your days out. All in all an excellent property which I would definitely return to for another stay. I would also point out that the owner is very accommodating and is keen to implement any suggestions/correct any problems during your stay. I think the description on the website needs to be updated to reflect this.

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. 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.
