This Harlech holiday cottage with sea views is located right in the heart of the famous castle town. Perched between the mountains of Snowdonia and the beautiful sandy coastline of Cardigan Bay, the cottage is walking distance to a lovely selection of shops, cafes, and the all important village pub.
The living area of this traditional quarryman’s cottage has been knocked through to provide a nice, big open plan space. At one end a large sofa and leather armchair face onto a large log fire sitting on a slate hearth. At breakfast time, the traditional dining table and chairs at the other end of the room will hopefully witness lots of animated discussions over the adventures that lay ahead as well as more tranquil family meals at the end of a busy day.
The kitchen, towards the back of the house is very well equipped with a large fridge-freezer, electric oven and hob along with a washer dryer. Plenty of storage room in the plain white fitted units and a small breakfast bar is a welcome addition.
There are two main bedrooms upstairs; one double and one twin. The double looks out towards the sea whilst the twin room looks out over the tops of the neighboring houses towards Snowdon itself. Both bedrooms are spotlessly clean with elegant fresh linen covering Victorian style beds. The family bathroom at the top of the stairs has a large shower cubicle and a plain white bathroom suite. There is a third unfurnished bedroom. Too small for a bed but perfect for a cot or small travel bed.

The cottage is located on a hill leading up from the high-street of this bustling seaside town. The hill ensures that the cottage commands brilliant views over the town and coastline beyond, but the gradient may not suit anyone with mobility difficulties.
The back garden is small but has fantastic views. Here, guests can look out over treetops and chimney pots towards the famous castle rising up right in the heart of town. Beyond, the Cardigan Bay coastline can be seen curving from left to right towards Porthmadog and then left again towards the tip of the Llyn peninsula and the distant flash of Bardsey lighthouse.
Harlech is home to a couple of grocery shops, a nice selection of cafes and restaurants and two local village pubs. Barmouth, some 15 minutes to the south and Porthmadog, 15 minutes to the North will provide guests with a larger selection of shops and cafes. No need to wander to find better beaches, however. The golden sands of Harlech beach must be among the cleanest and nicest stretches of coastline in the UK.
No need for the car when looking for a country hike either. A walk up the hill from the cottage away from town will quickly bring you to the foothills of Cwm Bychan. Beautiful rolling hills that lay just in front of the steeper Rhinog Mountain Range. There are lots of adventure activity providers in the area. Everything from mountain biking, to gorge walking and from zip lining to underground caving can be enjoyed nearby.
