Three Bedroom Holiday Cottage In Borth Y Gest | Ty-Gwyn

Pet FriendlyNear Beach

This three bedroom holiday cottage in Borth Y Gest is the perfect location for anyone looking for that traditional seaside holiday destination. Walking distance to the harbour and cafes and some lovely sandy beaches and only a short drive away from the majestic mountains of Snowdonia.
Three doors lead off the entrance hall. One leads to a convenient ground floor wc and washbasin. The second leads into the lounge but lets turn left first into the kitchen diner. White fitted units sit on black porcelain floor tiles. A large picture window looks out over a collection of houses in this friendly seaside village and a thoroughly modern glass table serves as a space for family meals.

If we continue on round we come to the lounge. A bright and airy room with some lovely French doors opening out onto a sunny patio. A fat comfortable leather sofa and matching arm chairs sit facing a TV above a modern wall hung fireplace. From here we can continue up an open staircase to the first floor.

Three bedrooms up here. One double room, one twin room and one smaller single room. Simple furnishings and clean white décor maintains that feeling of light and freshness suitable for a seaside holiday cottage. The family bathroom has a shower over bath arrangement as well as a wc and washbasin.

A small private patio area overlooks a lawned courtyard area. There’s always a great mix of locals and holiday makers in Borth Y Gest so lots of oportunities for a friendly chat and some local insights if you’re that way inclined.

The cottage is only a hundred meters or so away from the small harbour. And a collection of lovely cafes and bistros are dotted along the front. If you walk west along the estuary the sheltered harbour quickly gives way to some lovely sandy beaches with lots of hidden coves and secret pathways to explore. The wonderful welsh coastal path passes through this point. A path which will lead you all the way to the tip of the Llyn Peninsula if you have the energy.

Porthmadog golf course is also walking distance away as is the harbour town itself. Porthmadog is quiet a bit bigger than Borth Y Gest so there’s naturally a greater choice of shops, restaurants and pubs here.

A short car journey west will bring you to Criccieth. Another beautiful seaside village well worth exploring. Pwllheli further to the west again is similar to Porthmadog with a small supermarket as well as smaller shops stocking great local produce.

Lots to do in the area if you can tear yourself away from those sandy beaches. Guests can enjoy anything from survival days at the Bear Grills Centre to lazy afternoons wandering around castles and historic monuments. You might want to traverse a victorian slate quarry at 100mph on a zip line or perhaps wander along the beach with a Lama (yes a Lama), the choice is yours.

A spotlessly clean, well appointed home in a fantastic location. Owners extremely welcoming and lovely Easter treats for kids on arrival. Great location to explore all that North Wales has to offer. Enjoyed so much we’re booking again!


Wonderful bolthole! Perfect location to take in the fabulous coastline views. The cottage had everything you could desire, even a snippet of the sea from the patio. Excellent presentation and layout with a downstairs wc which is always a bonus.
Ideal for families or couples. With an ice cream shop and two lovely restaurants within 5 – 10 mins walk…. What’s not to like! Can highly recommend.


Really nice clean, tidy, comfortable house. Made a great base for Snowdon and the village is perfect, the Moorings Bistro was fantastic……. particularly chuffed with the service provided by Dioni and the amazing property owner who was awesome.

We spent a most enjoyable week at Ty Gwyn. It is well maintained, spotlessly clean and very comfortable with everything one could want or hope for. It is in a quiet and peaceful area and just a few minutes stroll from the sea front and cafés. The owner is just a few minutes away and is most welcoming and helpful.

Thank you for a very restful break in your spotlessly clean and well-situated property.

Great location in Borth Y Gest. Easy quick 15 mins walk into Porthmadog to Lidell. Easy walk to the beaches and highly recommend daily trips to Black Rock (£5 parking for the day there).

The cottage itself is very well maintained with a great living room and large patio – miss sitting on the patio enjoying breakfast or a glass of wine in the evening.

The bedrooms upstairs (one double, one with twin beds, and one with a single bed) had great windows and views. Bathroom upstairs with large bath and shower over the bath and toilet. Good sizes.

Kitchen is well stocked and the welcome basket of Welsh tea, oatcakes, milk and bottle of wine was most welcome.

Great hot water for the bathroom and the toilet downstairs was a nice luxury. A couple more hand towels would have been nice but such a minor issue we did not mention it to the owners but know if we had they would have provided them. The hair dryer was very welcome.

Beds were very comfortable. Many TV channels for a lazy day in.

Clean and welcoming and if we needed anything the owners were very prompt to respond. Local neighbours had a ready greeting for us. It was nice to watch the children playing games in the common area and if you had kids great place for them to play while the parents watch from the patio (or join in).

Nice parking space next to the front door.

Felt very safe and most welcome in the community.

Would stay here again as great owners and wonderful location.


Lovely house with own parking and great location for walking / kayaking to nearby beaches. Hosts easily contactable and very helpful. Will definitely recommend.

Beautifully clean and well maintained property. Lovely welcome pack on arrival. Good communication with owners if needed although we did not need them. House had everything you could possibly need. Parking space right next to property . Good base for exploring the area. 15 minutes walk into Porthmadog. Only a couple of minutes walk to local harbour. Would love to go again. Highly recommended

A lovely, comfortable, clean holiday house in a great location. A well stocked kitchen plus milk, tea bags and welsh cakes. Host was contactable if we needed (which we didn’t). Definitely recommend and would return.
