About the property

3 bedroom, 2 reception rooms, lux bathroom, modern kitchen, Priv drive & garden

Ranked in the top10 property’s

Located in the Snowdonia national park 2 miles from Harlech The property was formerly two cottages and has been converted to form a spacious luxury get away. From the moment you wake in a king sized bed with mountain views, take your shower in the luxury bathroom to when you return at the end of a busy day to relaxing lounge with log burner set in Welsh slate or sit out on the private decked area to take in the views. The kitchen & separate utility offer every convenience,washer dishwasher ,dryer, fridge freezer etc and the large separate dining room with oak table and Chesterfield sofa is the perfect place to enjoy a home cooked meal in front of the a log fire The second bedroom also has a king sized bed with excellent views whilst the single room is well suited for children.

New to the market this year the property is the perfect base to relax and enjoy your holiday at any time of the year.

You will find the cottage has plenty of space for a family or two couples as the twin reception rooms and upstairs layout are suited to both cases.

We have spared no expense in the furniture and fittings as it is our get away not just a holiday rental.

There is a new decked area to the rear which is a real sun trap and there is a grassed area with rockery .The front is fenced in to keep children and pets safe and has chipped slate covering

The cottage has a new central heating WIFI, Ps 2 dvd player and a selection of books and games for both adults and children.

The utility room offers safe storage for bikes, wet walking gear and wet dogs. It is equipped with washer and dryer.

About heather futcher

We are a family of 5 with 2 dogs, our life is busy and the cottage is our seaside get away. After buying the cottage in October 2015, thinking it will be sorted by Christmas it was ready to rent of by February 2016.

A year on we have had some great times at our get away and judging by the reviews so have our guests. In Winter the rain swept beach walks and coming back home to the log fires (1 for each dog) with a chip supper from Harlech Fish and chip shop. (it's very good), or summer cycling on the tracks of Codabrenendd

heather futcher purchased this cottage in 2015

Why heather futcher chose Porthmadog

The cottage is large enough to accommodate us all but still cosy at night with the fires lit. The is parking for 2 cars and a private garden that is secure for the dogs.

Finally it is located within the Snowdonia national parks and has great access to many attractions

What makes this cottage unique

Lots of space, good location,private rear garden, a real seaside home not just a rental house

Large Property in good location

  • 5 of 5

With just two of us in a house that can sleep six, we had plenty of room. Even fully occupied, I think that there would still be plenty of room especially with the two living rooms.

From this location, we visited the Welsh Highland Railway in Porthmadog, Port Mereion, Harlech Castle and Barmouth.

The railway station at Tygwyn is within walking distance with trains to Pwlheli, to the North and Barmouth and Aberystwyth to The South.

  • 5 of 5

We all had a great time fab location a real country feel a view of Portmeirion from a short walk up a little lane close to the cottage. Its within easy reach of all tourist attractions by car. Highlight of our trip was the zip wire ride at Penrhyn Quarry absolutely amazing. Our visit wasn't long enough unfortunately but we will definitely be back

The cottage is in a great location with so many beautiful walks and beaches ideal for dogs. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the cottage provides all the home comforts you could want. Owners were very good about arrival and departure times and helped with any information we asked for.

Fantastic cosy cottage that I recommend to all

  • 5 of 5

Lovely warm cottage, well maintaines and very comfortable. Has an assortment of bedrooms which are all very nice, and the bathroom is very modern and contains a jet bath which was a nice surprise. Only thing I think let's down this property is the internet, internet is very very slow and makes doing anything online pretty much impossible, but in all honesty if your looking to get away and have some time to yourself for a while why would you need internet anyway. I recommend this cottage to all if tourney a party of 7 or even just two of you it's lovely
