About Number 20

Number 20 has your next holiday sorted! This fantastic waterfront property is on a private estate with incredible views over the Glaslyn Estuary and Snowdonia. Is there anything more relaxing than sitting by the water, watching birds do their thing, shape spotting with clouds, and watching the occasional boat go past? You can do all of that before breakfast in this modern holiday property which sleeps four people in two bedrooms and is perfect for couples or families. Number 20 is a mere five-minute stroll from the centre of Porthmadog, though you'd barely know it was so close to shops, cafes and places like the railway-themed Spooner's Bar because it's just so quiet.

Porthmadog is a fantastic holiday destination for everyone in any season. The harbour town is on the Glaslyn Estuary, protected by the mountains of Snowdonia on the east and edged by the Irish Sea in the west. It's well-known for its narrow-gauge railways - the Ffestiniog Railway, Welsh Highland Railway, and Welsh Heritage Highland Railway all have a terminus here - a remnant from Porthmadog's days as a major port for shipping locally mined Welsh slate around the world. Walk or cycle across the estuary via The Cob, which you can see from your balcony, to Portmeirion, less than three miles away. The Wales Coast Path and Lôn Ardudwy bike route are two different options for exploring this incredible landscape.

Staying in Porthmadog means it's easy to discover the beauty and beaches of the Llyn Peninsula as well as the magnificence of Snowdonia's mountains and lakes. Day trips can include scaling the peak of Snowdon on foot or the Victorian passenger train. It's also possible to mountain bike along certain paths during specific times - definitely a challenge that will work up and appetite! Visit Caernarfon Castle, or castles at Harlech, Beaumaris and Criccieth, which are part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. National Trust and Cadw properties include Bodnant Gardens, Plas Mawr, and the Roman fort of Sergontium. Other attractions include Sea Zoo, Llechwed Slate Mines and the Sygun Copper Mine (both underground, so great all-weather activities), and the Zip World Slate Caverns.

You can precisely tailor your holiday at Number 20. If you love golfing, fishing and relaxing with a cold drink and a gorgeous view, you'll find it here. Likewise, if you aren't happy unless you're scaling a mountain, surfing a wave, or raising your adrenaline with another thrilling sport, you'll find yourself busy from dawn until dusk. Number 20's central yet quiet location is perfect for whatever you need it to be.
