You’ll find miles of beautiful beach just a short 10-minute walk from the cottage (though there are steps—if you prefer a more sedate trip there are two beaches less than five minutes’ drive away).
The cottage is also close to Porthmadog, home to a variety of cuisines, as well as a maritime museum and the famous Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railway. Nearby Portmeirion offers award-winning restaurants, stunning architecture and gardens, as well as a host of independent shops and cafes.
For golfers, the cottage is ideally positioned within a trio of courses almost unrivaled in the UK: Royal St. David’s, “one of the finest settings for golf in the world”, is just 3 minutes’ drive away and you can also visit the renowned Aberdovey and Nefyn courses.
