Greaves Wharf House was originally the Wharf Master’s office during the 19th century, and more recently was owned by the family of Frances Shand Kydd.
Our cottage on the ground floor of Greaves wharf House, previously the wharfmasters office has been converted into a luxury two bedroomed cottage with a lounge/dining room, a separate kitchen & utility area, and a bathroom with a bath and shower. There is Wifi available for your stay.
All the fixtures and the décor meet our consistent 5 star quality. Wharfhouse also has a private car park with space for two cars.
This property has a fabulous position adjacent to the slipway into the harbour. You can sit on the harbour wall just 20 yards from the door and enjoy the ever-changing tidal flow. The Wales coastal path runs directly alongside the property.Location
Should you feel like spoiling yourselves, a delicious breakfast can be enjoyed at Yr Hen Fecws just a few steps along the road.
During the summer months, there is a market held on Fridays a few hundred yards along the road towards town.
Within walking distance of Greaves Wharf House, the town itself has a wide variety of small, locally owned shops and restaurants, from bookshops and antique shops to music shops, where you can find almost everything you need. Moreover, there is no shortage of pubs and good restaurants., along the harbourside at the yacht club is a lovely Thai restaurant Thai Harbwr.
Two miles down the estuary in Morfa Bychan is Black Rock Sands, a popular wide sandy beach with a rocky headland at the western end of the beach and a backdrop of sand dunes that are a site of special scientific interest. When the tide recedes you can explore the rock pools, exposed caverns and multi coloured rock face (the rocks are not black!). The two-mile stretch of sands is popular with kite-buggies and kite surfers. It is convenient for picnics too, as you can drive your car right onto the beach.
Walkers will be spoilt for choice in the countryside around Porthmadog. The walk to Portmerion along the cob alongside the stunning Glaslyn Estuary gives tremendous views of the Snowdonia Mountains. Another beautiful walk is along the Llyn Coastal Path and further west through Borth-y-gest, Morfa Bychan, Black Rock Sands, Criccieth and beyond. For the really dedicated walkers, there are six designated routes to the summit of Snowdon and a variety of walking routes to Cader Idris
