Portmeirion, United Kingdom
Historic Welsh Coastal Retreat
This fabulous four-bedroom home sits on the first floor of an impressive house, totalling more than 2000 square feet in the gorgeous Welsh countryside, offering exceptional estuary views and an ideal location from which to explore!
Consisting of two spacious, linked rooms, the sitting room invites you in with warmth and familiarity. The main part of the sitting room offers plenty of plush seating in a space that’s surrounded by multitudes of books, creating a very cozy ambiance. Natural light streams in through the windows, which also allow for stunning views of Portmerion and Mount Snowdon. The rear section of the sitting area offers more comfortable seating and a desk should you choose to write ( a famous author once lived here).
The antique traditional elegance of the house continues on into the fitted kitchen, where you’ll find electric appliances that will ensure each meal is cooked to tasty perfection. When dinner is served, enjoy the gorgeous views from the dining room as you settle in for dinner at the rustic wooden dining table.
Each bedroom features an simple, traditional country house style of design, accentuating the elegant yet idyllic atmosphere of the home. The main bedroom is a double bedroom with king-size bed, the next two bedrooms both offer two single beds, and the final bedroom is a bunk room.
Outside, this pastoral property offers a charming garden for you to enjoy. This massive area surrounds the home, offering plenty of space to explore as well as access to the scenic estuary beyond. If you fancy a casual cookout, take the barbecue onto the shore and enjoy the alfresco dining set up.
Not far from the picturesque towns of Harlech and the world famous site of Portmeirion, this is the perfect home base for exploring the Snowdonia National Park Local town, Porthmadog is famous for its heritage railways, including the famous Ffestiniog Railway and its big brother the Welsh Highland Railway.
