Harlech Holiday Cottage With Sea Views | Fron-Hyfryd

Near BeachReal Fire

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 and cafes and restaurants.

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 facilitating more tranquil family meals at the end of a busy day.

The kitchen through towards the back of the house is very well equipped with a large fridge freezer, electric oven and hob and 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 room and one twin room. The double looks out towards the sea whilst the twin room out over the tops of the neighbouring 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 travel cot or small camp bed or luggage storage.

Floor Plans




The cottage is located on a steep 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 the 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. 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.

Lovely week in the house, everything spotlessly clean. Superb location in Harlech just a short walk down the hill to cafes in the town and down to the bottom of the hill to the pub & restaurant. Harlech beach is a nice walk from the house, however with the very handy car park pass, you can have free parking in many of the county council car parks. Definitely will be back.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful, comfy cottage. Fron Hyfryd is Spotlessly clean and vey well equipped with the wood burner an added bonus. Very central for visiting the surrounding area, would highly recommend.

A lovely cottage, thoughtfully set up. We appreciated the table and chairs in the garden to sit and enjoy the wonderful views. The fish and chips from the cafe at the bottom of the hill, near the level crossing, were excellent and the walk back up burnt off some of the calories in the chips!

We had a really lovely weekend at this beautiful cottage. It is in a great location so we walked to the beach and went hiking too. We would definitely recommend!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here post Covid lockdown. The cottage was in a super location and there were many walks right frl. The doorstep. It was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. The locals of Harlech were very welcoming and we particularly enjoyed a take away from the As.Is Bistro. Great to have Netflix to watch in the evening.

Hi Emily, sorry yes the pub has been closed, we have now removed the “Near pub” bit of the website, there are a couple of pubs at the bottom of the hill, within a mile, though it is a bit of a climb back up after!
