The location and the views from all four of the front rooms, the front terrace and the balcony are beautiful. Hours can be happily spent people, tide and weather watching. The sea and mountain views are ever changing. The village is also very peaceful at night so ideal for folk with a young family. Loved the beaches just around the corner and along the coastal path. The house is very well kitted out with both home comforts and technology.

A fantastic location and excellent standard of accommodation! Everything we needed and more was provided in the cottage. The gardens at the front and rear were excellent. There was plenty of parking on the roadside and adjacent car park and two superb restaurants within a few hundred yards! One week was nowhere near enough to do all the area has to offer, we're going to need at least another month there! Overall a great experience and can't wait to get back there ASAP!

From the moment we entered the property it felt like we were home. The house was extremely comfortable, relaxing and located in a very scenic and quiet peaceful place. We would almost certainly visit this property again in the future.

This property is a home from home; pleasing, clean and suits all our needs. The area is perfect for a relaxing holiday, with plenty of beaches and walks.

We loved the upstairs lounge overlooking the views and the flexibility with the bed settee, large living space downstairs and the downstairs shower room as well as upstairs bathroom. The stair gate was a very useful addition too.

What a lovely town and what a lovely cottage! The house was nice, well equipped and comfortable. Thank you to the owner for sharing this nice place.
Mrs Hartell
July 2015
Could not have wished for anything more. The furnishings were of good quality and the whole place was more like a permanent home, rather than a holiday let.
Mrs Hoy
June 2015
The location, the viewing lounge on the first floor and the attention to detail of how the house is stocked and kitted out is amazing. We have now booked the same place for the third year running; a truly excellent holiday home.
Mrs Coulson

The location is great, with lovely views across a peaceful bay and a great base for touring Snowdonia and the Lleyn area. A very comfortable and well equipped cottage, and so clean - a real pleasure to stay at.

An excellent location with the beach on the doorstep. A good use of space; we were 4 adults, a toddler and a baby but didn't feel on top of each other. It was nice to sit and have breakfast outside looking at the harbour and there was a great view from the upstairs lounge. The house felt very family friendly with games and beach toys provided. Would use this house again.
Mrs Cash
October 2014
The upstairs sitting room overlooking the bay was wonderful. A bonus was an excellent restaurant next door and a cafe within sight! Walks straight from the cottage were interesting and easy.
Ms Weller

Ms Roberts

It was very welcoming, a home from home and the facilities were excellent. It was very clean with lots of extras, for example, games and DVDs for the children. It's a fantastic location, even on dull days, the views are excellent. The children loved the bay, the beach, the harbour and the steam trains in Porthmadog.
Mr Bass

Great views from the cottage overlooking the beach.
Mrs Hyatt

The house was comfortable, clean, warm and well equipped. There was a huge selection of books and games, including books to be read to a toddler. The views were stunning and there were beautiful coves and beaches within easy walking distance.
Mrs Sutton
May 2014
This is the second year we have rented this house, it ticks all the boxes. The house is excellent and the location is great, with a beach around corner for all to enjoy. Nice walk into Porthmadog so not having to use the car is a big advantage. We have already booked for next year!

Miss Durrant
March 2014
The location and views were stunning. Sitting on the balcony and in the window seats overlooking the water was perfect. The cottage is perfectly placed for exploring the area - we were able to climb mountains but also do coastal walks. Really enjoyed having the coastal path and beautiful beaches on the doorstep.

The location was superb, the house had a beautiful view which we never tired of even on the rainy day we had. Also we found that you didn't have to travel too far in the car to make use of the local attractions.
Mr Gettings
July 2012
We loved the location, the view out of the windows was great and the village was lovely. North Wales is a great place to visit. We had an excellent meal at the Moorings Bistro. The beaches in the area were also very nice.
Mr Harris

The location was fantastic - and the property was ideally situated, comfortable and very well equipped, with brilliant views over the bay at Borth y Gest and the estuary beyond. We had a lovely family holiday and would certainly consider booking the property again.

Beautiful cottage, tastefully furnished, spotlessly clean, with a glorious view and sandy beaches within walking distance.
March 2015
This house is fully equipped. Fabulous house, lovely bedding and towels, nice big kitchen. Can't fault this house at all. Lots of space for all the family 7 in total age range 3- 70 years of age. Facilities 1 bathroom, 1 shower room and 2 toilets. Parking no problem. Great views for the front Windows. The house was lovely and clean and warm. We didn't want to leave. Restraurant next door, we went for Sunday lunch well worth a visit.
Mrs Davis
February 2012
The property is set in an idyllic part of the world, stunning views of the coast and in a pretty little village. My family were the first to stay at the cottage and were warmly welcomed by the owners who couldn't do enough for us. The property itself is absolutely beautiful and finished to such a high standard, the original photos on the site do not do it justice. The log burner gives the front room a real cosy feel and as the weekend we went was a wet one it was nice to come home to. I would highly recommend this cottage and don't think anyone would be disappointed on arrival. The small quaint restaurant next door, 'The Moorings' is a must.
Mrs Dent
July 2012
The situation was perfection, right on the water's edge, at least almost! The restaurant next door was fabulous, ate there several times, in fact our last night drinks were on the house!
May 2013
5 Ivy terrace is a lovely property with plenty of room for our group of 8 friends. The location is perfect, quiet and scenic but just a short walk from the livelier Porthmadog. The house is well equipped with a large kitchen and living area. The decor is lovely and the views are great, especially from the top of the lovely garden.
November 2012
We had a fabulous week at Ivy Cottage. The location is perfect - overlooking the bay and next door to an excellent eaterie. The cottage itself is very well equipped with TVs and Dvds in every bedroom, and every amenity provided in the kitchen. The owner is helpful and friendly if needed.
May 2013
8 of us stayed here for a long weekend, it was perfect for our trip. We were doing some walking and touristy things in the area and this was a great base. We spent as much time in the cottage as out, and it was great for us all to sit round, eating and drinking. Plenty of room, lovely bedrooms and great outside areas - we sat in the front on the patio eating breakfast in the morning and out in the huge back garden in the evening looking at the views. I highly recommend this cottage and will be staying again with family in future.
