The property

Cefn Isaf holiday cottage is a peaceful haven with wonderful open views of the countryside but only a hop from the beach.

It's the perfect retreat to return to after a busy day out.

It was converted with great care by the owner and her architect husband a few years ago and has given many happy holidays. "A truly relaxing house carefully designed for you to relax and have a great holiday.

Wonderful sandy beaches just down the lane, great places to eat close by and the most amazing night skies!" The flora and fauna in this area are breathtaking, and in the evenings you may well hear the owl.

Black Rock, is a fabulous sandy beach, and a mile away down the quiet lane.

Close to the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railways you can hop on a train to Bounce Below!

For the more sedate a short drive to the Italianate village of Portmeirion, designed by the owner's great-uncle, Sir Clough Williams-Ellis. Romantic and relaxing, wonderful solid oak floors and beams, a blend of antique and contemporary furniture, Cefn Isaf is a delightful holiday retreat which will be enjoyed and appreciated by families and friends any time of the year.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

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 and the Welsh Highland railway where you can travel by steam through spectacular Snowdonia scenery, to Blaenau Ffestiniog or Caerforn . 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: There is a fairly steep rough track leading to house with two gates at each end which must be closed at all times.
Note: £150 Good Housekeeping Bond.
