Porthmadog Cottages

Nestled at the base of a majestic mountain, Porthmadog—heartwarmingly known as 'Port'—is rich with maritime history. Whether you're looking for a peaceful walk, an enriching cultural experience, a journey through rural landscapes by rail, or the simple joy of driving onto a beach, our Porthmadog cottages offer easy reach to many attractions in the area. Today, Port is not just a bustling shopping and tourist spot but also home to three significant railway lines. Among them are the renowned Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland narrow gauge railways that draw visitors eager to witness the stunning scenery these routes navigate. Beyond its mountainous charm lies effortless access to the serene beaches and bays of the Llyn Peninsula. At Black Rock Sands, there's no need for parking worries—you can conveniently drive your car right onto the dunes! The nearby villages like Borth y Gest and Tremadog each have their own unique beauty waiting to be discovered. And truly, no visit to Porthmadog is complete without experiencing Portmeirion—a picturesque Italianate coastal resort that feels like stepping into another world.
