The bustling harbour front at Pothmadog, Snowdonia

Self Catering Holiday Cottages in Porthmadog

The bustling harbour town of Porthmadog is found on the Afon Glaslyn estuary in northwest Wales amongst the mountain ranges of Snowdonia. It’s a fantastic place to stay if you’re looking to explore some of the attractions of the surrounding area, particularly as it’s a town with such good transport links that include the Welsh Highland Heritage Railway. A highlight is a mile-long embankment across the estuary that is known locally as ‘The Cob’ and makes a great route for an afternoon stroll or cycle, admiring the views of the coastline on either side.
