“The best equipped self-catering property we have ever stayed in”
Reviewed October 30, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

My husband and I stayed here with our 2 year old and 10 week old and it was just perfect for our holiday. The views from the dining room, living room and the two front bedrooms are stunning and we witnessed a beautiful sunrise one morning. The property has been refurbished to a very high standard and the fixtures and fittings are good quality. The kitchen is really very well equipped and had everything we needed (it even had tupperware boxes to put your packed lunches in!). Our two year old loved all the space and was sad to leave. Borth-y-Gest is a great location to stay and there was lots of things to do nearby including the Ffestiniog Steam Railway, beaches, Portmeirion, and castles. We will definitely return here!

“Stunning views, lovely house, great loation”
Reviewed April 27, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

I stayed in the house over a sunny weekend with family (3 adults, 3 children). The house is clean, spacious and tastefully decorated with some lovely original touches. The sea views from the kitchen and front bedrooms were amazing and the balcony was a great place to sit in the morning sun.

The location of the property is fantastic with beautiful beaches a short walk along the coastal and a nature reserve directly behind the house. There's a shop, cafe and bistro in the village and Porthmadog is in walking distance.

All in all a perfect place for a family holiday. I would definitely visit again.

“Perfect cottage with great views”
Reviewed January 6, 2013 for a stay in December 2012
1
person found this review helpful

We stayed here for 7 nights in late Dec/early January. We were two families with three children ranging in age from 5 months to 8 years old. This house suited us perfectly, there were two spacious living rooms, one housed a wii and tv the other had fantastic views over the bay, a log burner and large TV. The kitchen/diner was great and worked really well. It was well stocked with everything you could need and even had two fridges (great for booze and food), microwave, washing machine and dishwasher.
The upstairs provided us with two double rooms (both with fantastic views over the bay), twin room and a room with bunkbeds, a family bathroom with bath and shower over the bath and an en-suite to one of the double rooms.

Everything about the house was good, the beds were comfortable, shower pressure perfect, dryers over the radiators, plently of hooks for your coats and two shoe racks, all added up to a well thought out house.
The only downside was it was quite a steep walk from where you parked your car to the front door but you very soon get used to it. There is no parking allocated to the house so you park on the road at the end of the shared drive. This is not a problem as there was always enough room to park.
There is a lovely 15 minute walk to Porthmadog, to the pubs and shops. Tesco's deliver to the house.
Overall a great holiday home.
