Hillside description

Hillside is located in the small village of Talsarnau, which sits between Harlech and Porthmadog and is a great location to discover the beauty of North Wales. The village has a pub, bistro serving food, train station and beautiful estuary walks. Formerly two cottages, Hillside now offers 3 bedroom accommodation, as well as a well-equipped kitchen, separate dining room and living room with an open fire for cosy nights in. As a former slate miners cottage, Hillside retains some of the old charm of times gone by, including an open fire, exposed floor boards and slate floor. Electric radiators throughout provide guests with instant heat for colder evenings. Guests can access the terraced garden from the rear bedroom, as well as from the kitchen downstairs. The garden terrace with garden furniture provides a sunny spot to relax and unwind after a long day walking, sightseeing or at one of the local beaches or tourist attractions. Local amenities including cash point machine, convenience store, cafes, takeaways, fish and chip shop, antique shops and post office are only a 5-minute drive to Harlech. Hillside is well-located for many visitor attractions, the famous Portmeirion Italian style village is a short drive and has been the location for many films, as well as the hit 1960’s television show ’The Prisoner’.
