Glan Gors self catering apartment in Snowdonia National Park is a pleasant non-smoking holiday home nestled in the historic town of Harlech. Ideal for families and couples, the ground floor property sleeps up to five people. We are sorry, but due to previous bad experiences we do not take bookings from young single sex groups who do not wish to maintain the quiet environment and respect the property and neighbours. This is definitely not a suitable venue for hen or stag parties.
Comprising of three comfortable bedrooms (1 king, 1 double & 1 single), a spacious lounge area and well equipped kitchen, it is ideal for the self catering visitor. In the warmer months enjoy sitting out in the gardens and admire the spectacular views of the hills above Harlech.
It is within walking distance of a selection of shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs. A stroll away is Harlech beach, ideal for families with children. Locally there are several other large sandy beaches. Royal St David's golf course is about a five minute walk away. The area is excellent for walkers of all abilities, either in the heart of Snowdonia or on the Rhinogydd a few miles behind Harlech. For those wanting to tour and looking for a bit of history there are beautiful castles in the area including the nearby Harlech Castle.
Our ground floor apartment provides easy access ideal for those who are less mobile. The lounge/dining area has plenty of comfortable seating, freeview television, DVD & video player. There is a small selection of videos, DVDs, books, cards, & board games. The fully equipped kitchen has an electric cooker, microwave, fridge & washing machine. We provide bedding, towels & tea towels, but if you prefer to bring your own we will deduct 10% from the rental price. Electricity is included in the cost of the rental. We normally send a key out by post when the balance has been received. For late bookings we can make an arrangement for the key to be collected from a near neighbour.
We are happy to take a well behaved adult dog so long as the owners bring its own bed & don't allow it onto chairs or beds.
BY CAR. From the north take the A496 from Maentwrog & take a right turn (still the A496) after you go through the village of Talsarnau. As you enter lower Harlech the Morfa garage (Texaco) is on the left hand side of the road and immediately opposite this is the right turn into Glan Gors estate.
From the south via Barmouth: go north on the A496 & about 2 miles after passing through Llanbedr follow the road downhill , past Royal St David's golf course on your left & then over the railway crossing. The Morfa garage is on your right hand side & you turn left into the estate opposite this garage.
Turn into the car park on the left that has a large tree by its entrance & park there. In the far corner of the car park there is a path heading in the direction of the school playing field fence. This leads to number 36, which is the ground floor property nearest to the fence.
Harlech is on the Cambrian coast line, with some direct connections from Birmingham. Go onto the main road, cross & turn to the right. Glan Gors estate is about 5 minutes walk, just past the school field & the property can be reached by walking along the path which is a left turn immediately after the school field.
Buses (38) from Barmouth stop at the front of the estate. There is an express bus (X94) that runs from Wrexham to Barmouth.

"Location for Beach and Town was excellent"
We were aware of location with regards to beach and Harlech town so it suited what we wanted to do on our break.Also enjoyed surrounding amenities.Only negative was some rooms were damp on arrival.… More
Sorry that you had a problem. We only vacated the property ourselves the day before your arrival, after a week's stay there, and had aired all rooms thoroughly before we left so don't understand why some rooms were damp but will look into it. If you feel that there was anything we could have done to resolve the problem, please let us know.

Sorry that you were cold. The storage heaters were put on by a neighbour the day before your arrival, but it looks like that wasn't sufficient in a cold January, even with the portable heaters provided. We are open to any suggestions that would make the place warmer in very cold weather.
