Four Bedroom Holiday Cottage in Harlech | Porkington-Terrace
No.1 Porkington Terrace is a chic and stylish four bedroom holiday Cottage in Harlech. Right in the heart of this picturesque and friendly holiday town the cottage is walking distance to a lovely collection of cafes, pubs and shops as well as being within easy reach of a lovely sandy beach and the wilderness of the Snowdonia Mountains.
Sat just above the famous Harlech Castle, the cottage is the first in a row of handsome stone built terraced houses. A turquoise blue front door leads us through a small entrance lobby into a surprisingly large lounge. There’s an immediate wow factor here. A huge inglenook fireplace houses a welcoming woodburning stove on a traditional welsh slate hearth. A designer sofa and arm chairs sit facing the fire and combine with more traditional furniture and ornaments to create a really elegant space.
The kitchen diner next door is smaller but equally modish. Again, modern appliances are complimented by more traditional solid wood kitchen units and a slate floor. The dining table sits in the light of a large sash window, which looks over rooftops down towards the castle and the sandy shoreline beyond.
Out through the back door from the kitchen, there is a very useful undercover passageway, ideal for storing a pushchair and bike or two. Off this, there is a bijou wash room with toilet, washbasin and washing machine, and a great drying room perfect for drying washing, wetsuits, and waterproofs with freezer.
We return to the lounge to climb the generously wide staircase up to the bedrooms on the first floor. At the front of the house there are two stylish and characterful double bedrooms which enjoy gorgeous views out over Harlech Castle and the beautiful Porthmadog Bay. Next door we have a very cute single bedroom.
The other side of the stairs, the bathroom houses a nice simple white bathroom suite with a bath and separate shower. The bath is lovely and big but you might have to set time limits on it’s use as this is the only bathroom in the house. The beautiful twin bedroom at the back of the house is lovely and light and includes a set of french doors which lead out onto a small private patio area and the terraced garden beyond – perfect for that morning coffee before the kids get up perhaps.
