Great location, great views, lovely house
Really not sure why the only reviews here are for Christmas stays, it's clearly a popular house and will be good for a holiday at any time of year. Five of us stayed for Christmas, no problem at all cooking Christmas dinner in the well equipped kitchen! I now want a double oven myself. The two cosy living rooms make this a very comfortable house for everyone to spread out, both downstairs rooms have living flame gas fires which are perfect for winter evenings (there is central heating too). The views from the front of the house are great, I could sit in bed and see right across the valley to the hills on the other side. From the living room, you have a good view of the harbour. Attentive and helpful owners who sent lots of great information in advance and even phoned just to check everything was ok. It's unusual to have that level of attention in a holiday let, I think. We were met by a bottle of champagne and welsh cakes on arrival. The parking at the back of the house is tight for an estate car but still doable and there was plenty of free parking nearby. In terms of pubs, I'd recommend The Australia which you can see from the house and has Purple Moose Brewery beers. Good to see Porthmadog is a proper town with real people living there, unlike some Cornish villages for example which have been taken over by second homes. I would definitely stay here again.
Liked everything. We had a wonderful time and will hopefully be back.
Two living rooms worked out ideal with having children, the views were spectacular and the location was great. The separate toilet from the bathroom upstairs was ideal as well. The owners left Welsh cakes and a Christmas card. We felt very welcome and loved every minute of our stay.
Brilliant time at Garth Craig!
6 adults, a 14 months, 5 and 7 year old children and a 7 week old baby stayed for 4 nights over New Year 2015. We arrived at 3pm and the Tesco delivery came at 4pm all the way up the steep steps! The weather was awful for the 4 days and we therefore made the most of this beautiful cottage. The kids had their own living room and the grown ups had theirs. The kitchen was ample and we were able to all sit round the table and eat. The added bonus of a washing machine with a 7 week old baby's washing was great. The bed rooms were of a nice size and my hubbie and I stayed in the loft room, we pushed the beds together. Once we got used to the low ceiling it was fine. It was very warm up there. We had a slight problem with the cottage and the agent was extremely attentive, the owner even rang to check we were ok. They left us a bottle of fizz, welsh cakes and an xmas card! Location was great, a very short walk from the high street and the Ship pub which became our local let 2 families park their cars for free for the duration. We didn't do much but eat, drink and play games with the kids (loads of great games at the cottage have been left). A thoroughly chilled out time at Garth Craig - thank you!
The location was fantastic with beautiful views. The house was very quiet and comfortable offering a lot of space for two families.
