Llofft Talar is a three bedroom farm holiday cottage in Porthmadog. Situated on the outskirts of town on a working farm, is it perfect for exploring Snowdonia and the Llyn Peninsula.
Porthmadog is a lovely harbour town offering some great independent shops, cafes and restaurants. From the harbour itself, a short walk will bring you to the fishing village of Borth Y Gest and a 5 minute drive in the car will take you to the world famous Portmeirion Village.
The piece de resistance of course, is the Ffestiniog Railway, a 150 year old steam train that takes you from Porthmadog harbour into the mountains of Snowdonia. Llofft Talar has the best view in the house as the steam train passes the back garden – such a beautiful sight to behold.
The interior of the cottage is simple with clean lines. The living rooms are upstairs and the bedrooms on the lower level.
Downstairs consists of a double bedroom with an ensuite and two twin rooms. All bedrooms are carpeted with achromatic colour schemes and beautiful, solid, white beds and wardrobes. Big plump duvets and an airy feel will ensure a good night sleep. The ensuite is a shower room – again, very simple with neutral colours. The family bathroom has a bath over shower arrangement.
Upstairs is a large sitting room with an apex roof. Wooden effect floors and big cosy leather sofas make the most of this lovely, light room, set off by the skylight windows. The kitchen next door is again a good size with a large dining room table and chairs at one end and the kitchen area at the other. Everything you would need to cater for your holiday is here all in a modern, clean and simple decor.
Outside, there is a patio section with wooden garden furniture where you can sit out on a beautiful summer evening and take in the surrounding mountains – simply stunning.

The cottage itself is situated just on the outskirts of Porthmadog. With a lovely patio area outside, you can sit out and take in the scenery and as you are also on a working farm, there is plenty of space in which to enjoy your country retreat. The Ffestiniog railway runs past the house and so you have first class views to see this 150 year old steam train in action as it makes its ascent into the mountains.
Porthmadog town centre is a 15 minute walk or a 5 minute drive from the holiday cottage. There are lots of lovely cafes and restaurants; The Big Rock Cafe is a great place to go where they offer different types of street food from around the world along with lots of great breads, cakes and lunches, all made on site. Allports is where to go for fish and chips and on the harbour itself, you’ll find a fabulous Thai restaurant. If fresh fish is something you enjoy, Blas Y Mor fishmonger is the place to visit. All the main supermarkets are also found in Porthmadog.
Borth Y Gest is a 15 minute walk from the harbour and is a lovely little fishing village where you’ll find lots of pirates coves and quaint little tea shops. Portmeirion Village is also on your doorstep and most definitely a place to visit.
Porthmadog is a really great position to be in for exploring Snowdonia, The Llyn Peninsula and the North coast has all the main access roads come into and out of Porthmadog. Criccieth is only 10 minutes by car where you’ll find the castle, Dylans Restaurant and a high street full of antique shops. From there you can travel further afield to discover the beaches on the Llyn and the other towns including the very popular Abersoch.
Head west into Snowdonia, you are only 15 minutes from Beddgelert and 30 minutes from larger towns like Llanberis where of course you have incredible walking, climbing, canyoning, kayaking, SUP, sailing and windsurfing opportunities in the mountains and on the lakes.
30 minutes North will take you to Caernarfon where you will, of course, find the castle and Bethesda which is home to the world famous Zip World.
