We had a good week, which was not dampened by the weather. Within easy reach of Snowdonia for mountains, great coastal beaches, Anglesey, or walk down to Port Meirion. We fell in love with Port Meirion, and visited twice. Worth noting if you are going on three days, buy a season ticket! The cottage is somewhat dated all through. In...

The property was in a really quiet location with superb views over the estuary and countryside but only five minutes drive from the town of Portmadog. Dog friendly, with countryside walks direct from the door down to the beach meant we all had a great holiday, would certainly book this holiday again.

About the neighbourhood
Snowdonia is a National park in North Wales which occupies most of the county of Gwynedd. It is mountainous unspoiled countryside which has the longest coastline of any of the U.K. national parks. In Snowdonia you have the highest mountains in England and Wales, a multitude of lakes and rivers and the most stunning coastline which is rugged and exciting, or sandy and relaxing. We say you are never far from anywhere in Snowdonia. From the beach to the foot of Snowdon is about 9 miles of jaw dropping scenery. There are a lot of castles and steam trains, country houses and gardens. There is a rich Welsh heritage tradition of slate and copper mining and mountain sheep farming in the area. Here is still spoken the old 'British' language of our forefathers. Welsh is spoken openly in the... more
