Porthmadog is a lovely little town to potter around and we had some lovely day trips to Portmerion, Snowdon, and on the railway. There were a few teething problems with the house as we were the first of the season to stay, but Jenny the owner was brilliant about it, very helpful and keen to sort things out and ensure we enjoyed our stay. The house was comfortable and we had everything we needed, lovely to have a courtyard garden, we were lucky enough to have a beautiful sunny week, so could sit outside.
