Bodlondeb Beach Cottage description

Holiday home
Situated near the centre of Harlech, this lovely stone-built terraced cottage provides wonderful views of 13th Century Harlech Castle with the Tremadog Bay and the Snowdonia mountains beyond. This is an incredibly welcoming cottage and is able to sleep up to four people in two double bedrooms, making it ideal for two couples looking to explore the region. There is a large rear garden - ideal for outdoor dining - which also enjoys the spectacular views. The local area is a haven for walkers and with so many spectacular beaches close at hand it makes a great place for a seaside break.

Set in a wonderful position between the mountains and the sea, Harlech is a beautiful small town with an impressive skyline, dominated by its majestic 13th Century castle. This fortress is often considered the finest built by Edward I in North Wales and has been granted World Heritage status. As home to the famous Royal St. David's golf course, the town is very popular with golfers. The clean, sandy beach is another draw for families looking to enjoy a traditional holiday by the sea. The town provides a wide selection of local amenities including good quality restaurants and excellent shops. The Snowdonia National Park, together with the sandy beaches of Cardigan Bay, are both within easy driving distance, adding to the diversity of this region.

Famous for its choirs, stunning mountain ranges and beautiful valleys, this wonderful country has something for everyone. From Snowdonia in North Wales to the Brecon Beacons and the Pembrokeshire Coast in the South.

This is a lovely cottage in great location. We thoroughly enjoyed our three day break; Harlech itself has much to offer and the Snowdonia scenery was stunning, ablaze with autumn colour. There was certainly no risk of running out things to do!

This is our third time at this cottage. It is lacking nothing. It is comfortable and extremely well equipped and plenty of hot water for showers. It is ideally situated for going north up the coast to Porthmadog or south to Barmouth and the osprey project site. We will book again.

The cottage was well furnished and extremely well equipped to a high standard throughout. For those who enjoy the outdoors this is a great location for a holiday.

We loved the cottage and the area very much. It was lovely to go back to such a nice place after being out for the day, especially sitting on the decking area with the wonderful views of the castle and the sea. It was so relaxing. The owners were very helpful and pleasant too.

What an absolute gem! Soon as I walked through the door I felt the property was warm and inviting. It is comfortable, very well equipped, very clean and a home from home. The views were spectacular. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone.

The cottage was really cosy and warm and just great for a winter holiday. The log burner was a must for us and was top of our wish list. We like to eat in and the kitchen was perfectly stocked with beautiful crockery, dishes, pans etc. So cooking in the compact kitchen was a dream. Bedrooms were clean and comfortable with a lovely spacious bathroom.

A nicely renovated property which was well heated and cosy in January when we visited. It was brilliantly equipped and in a great location with views of the mountains and castle. Great little garden which we would love to enjoy in the summer months.
Mr Taylor

Great location - fantastic views of Harlech Castle and Snowdon from the cottage. Really comfortable beds, we really appreciated having summer-weight duvets available as well as winter-weight. High spec TV and entertainment equipment. Plenty of excellent guide books provided for the local area. Great views from the decked area of back garden.

The furnishings and utensils in this property were of an exceptionally high quality. It was really comfortable and very convenient for town. The beaches at Harlech are awesome. I didn't realise the area was so beautiful. I would definately recommend this property.

Mr Mrs Hewins
September 2012
Central location in Harlech, cottage and garden probably the best we have ever stayed in. We have been staying in 4 and 5 star holiday cottages for many many years now, couldn't recommend it more highly. Loads to see do. Could go on and on thinking of things we liked for ever.
Mr David
November 2011
The location of the cottage was excellent, and hearing the Welsh language, being spoken on a day to day basis, in shops and on the streets etc. The friendliness of the North Walians. So many historical sites to be visited. The drive through the heart of Wales with so much wonderful countryside to enjoy.
Ms Maunder
July 2012
There was everything we needed in the accommodation, and it was a comfortable place to be on the days it rained! The accommodation was in a good location with plenty of walks to do and the beach close by.
Miss Tyrrell
September 2011
The raised patio area at Bodlondeb provided outstanding views of the beach, distant mountains and Harlech Castle. Located centrally to Harlech, Bodlondeb is only a couple of minutes walk away from the local, and it must be said welcoming, pubs, shops, cafes, restaurants and takeaways. 5 minutes walk along the main street brings you to a viewing area, providing a stunning opportunity to watch the sun setting on the horizon. Further afield, only an hours drive to Mount Snowdon and 20 minutes to Portmeirion. Leave the car at home and make use of a well connected, reasonably priced train service that takes in coastal and inland routes of incredible beauty. Bodlondeb is a very comfortable, well equipped, beautiful holiday home situated in an awe inspiring part of the country. We had a fantastic time and would like to thank the owners of Bodlondeb for providing such a wonderful base for our adventures in North Wales.

Excellent location of the property. Extremely well stocked house, finished to a very high standard, the owners have thought about every possible situation and they were just on the other end of the phone to help settle us in. We would definitely use this property again!
Miss Puckett

The refurbishment of the cottage was sympathetic, giving it a good traditional feel, but with all the advantages of modern design and style. Very well thought out and tasteful. We felt at home there very quickly. The views are stunning and the situation is great. Very relaxing.

May 2013
Me and my partner stayed for a week in May. The first weekend we were joined by another couple of friends and the cottage is plenty big enough for 2 couples. It is very well equipped- - they have thought of everything in the kitchen. There's a dish washer, washing machine, tumble dryer etc. We ate in a couple of nights and there is a dining room table that expands.. The decking area is up some steep stairs and has beautiful views of the sea and castle. It was a shame the weather wasn't hotter as we would have liked to sit out there and have a BBQ. Beds, duvet and pillows were extremely comfortable, good storage. Bathroom lovely with a good shower and bath. All in all a great little cottage. Within walking distance you will find the castle, there is an Indian Restaurant, and a fantastic restaurant called The Plas - if you sit in the conservatory it has spectacular views of the coast and castle and we ate watching the sun going down. There's a pub just round the corner from the cottage and we joined in the Wednesday pub quiz and found the staff and locals were very friendly. Would recommend the cottage and would use Harlech as a base to explore North Wales again.
May 2013
Very easy to find and very conveniently placed in the village. Great view of the castle especially from the top terrace garden. Nice shops a few steps away and some good tea rooms. The west Indian restaurant was an unexpected gem - delicious food. The cottage had all we needed and was easy to run. The parking restrictions are a minor hassle but car parks are cheap and not far away.The log fire/central heating worked overtime as the weather was very cold when we stayed. Once we were out, it was easy to access North Wales - would be good for Snowdonia.
January 2014
Very we'll equipped cottage with great views from the garden. Easy to walk to all local facilities.
October 2013
Great holiday in excellent location, would definitely want to go back
February 2013
Just spent a wonderful week at this comfortable well equipped house. The area is beautiful with lots to do. Long beach walks, cycling and train trips. I happily recommend the property and the area.
December 2009
We already gave you our review, not long after we returned! We enjoyed the time in Harlech very much and the house is perfect!
February 2010
Beautiful cottage, in a lovely location with stunning views. What more can I say?!
August 2011
We found the holiday house very comfortable,clean and tidy. Great to be able to walk out your door and to be in village life and mingle with the locals in the quaint interesting little shops. It was very central to what we wanted to see, In particular Portmeirion where we had a lovely day, The Harlech Castle which was in view, had plenty of history to discover, in walking distance from the house. Great views of the mountains and castle. The long sandy beach which seemed to stretch for miles, but had hardly a sole on it, was also walking distance. Our son enjoyed the many walks into the tree clad hills behind the town in the area and found interesting sites.
