The Gwynedd region
These luxury holiday cottages in North Wales are located along a beautiful coastline of sandy beaches, spectacular cliffs and glorious estuaries. From Barmouth and the Llyn Peninsula to Conwy, you will be spoilt for choice at our luxury North Wales holiday cottages by the sea.
One of the features that make these holiday cottages in North Wales so special and unique is the fact that the coastal scenery is backed by the wonderful sights and attractions of Snowdonia National Park. Always close to beautiful beaches and magnificent mountains, there are so many activities and attractions that guests just can't get enough of our North Wales holiday cottages by the sea.
Amongst the things that should not be missed whilst staying at luxury holiday cottages in North Wales are Portmeirion's Italianate village with its Welsh architectural extravagance and private beach; Bodnant Garden and Harlech, Cricieth, Conwy or Penrhyn's neo-Norman castle from the 19th century. Not to forget the charming coastal villages of the Llyn Peninsula where you might want to consider three trips to Bardesy Island - considered equal to a pilgrimage to Rome.
This large house is located within ½ a mile of Barmouth town centre and offers amazing views over the bay. A 5 minute walk along a public footpath (that can be joined 50 yards from the house) will take you directly to Barmouth's sandy blue flag beach. The town's wide range of restaurants, shops and bars as well as boat trips, fishing trips etc are also within a 10 minute walk.
10 miles north along the coast is the picturesque village of Harlech. Dominated by the brooding presence of Harlech Castle, it also boasts a nationally and internationally renowned golf course with breathtaking coastal views. For keen mountain bikers, the world renowned Coed y Brenin mountain biking centre is also nearby.
Mountain walks can be accessed 200 yds from the top of the house whilst the Mawddach Way (half a mile away) offers phenomenal views of the Snowdonia mountains sweeping down to the Mawddach estuary. An experience not to be missed, especially at sunset.
Minutes from this beautiful house is the ferry crossing to Fairbourne, where you can enjoy steam train rides or an afternoon of horse-riding along the beach. The Italian village of Portmeirion is also worth a visit and with Snowdonia National Park being so close, a walk to the top of Snowdon could well be on the cards.

"Good sized property with sea views but next to a very busy road and in need of some investment."
Booked this property after seeing the reviews on Trip Advisor but was rather disappointed. The property is clearly treated by the owners as still their home and not run as a business. It needs a lot o… More
Reply from the owners...
We are very disappointed that the quests did not enjoy their stay at High View House.
We would like to add a few comments to the quests complaints:
We do treat the house as our home in the sense that we want guests to feel at home at High View House. The house was built over 100 years and still retains many of the original features and is in very good condition.
The walk to the beach is only around 5 minutes. I wonder if the family used the shortcut of the footpath that leads to the beach across the road from the front of the house…
We would also like to point out that as the house is on the hill and we are in Wales there will be some paths/ roads that will go uphill. But nothing too strenuous.
The windows do get cleaned regularly but we get a lot of sand blowing onto the windows with the windy weather we tend to get. As the house is surrounded by trees and shrubs the cobwebs is something we are likely to get on a daily basis.
As the guests kindly point out the rest of the house was in excellent condition.
We are sorry that the guests could not sit around the dining table at one time. It does have 12 chairs and we have had that number of guests previously who have all sat around the table. However we would like to point out that there is another dining table in the kitchen that could have also been used, especially as the family had numerous teenagers.
If the lounge was not big enough- which has never been a problem for any other guests; there was another large sitting room that could have also been used.
We understand from the internal review that these particular guests did not like visiting the town and claimed that people were rude and not helpful to the English.
If the guests feel that they have been ripped off they should attempt to stay at a premier inn for 7 days for 12 guests within the area and with similar views to what they had at the house. It would certainly cost them more than twice the amount that they paid for our house.
