Greaves Wharf House is the ground floor apartment of this historic 19th century Wharf Master's office, more recently the cottage was owned by the family of Shand Kydd, Lady Diana's mother. It enjoys a fabulous waterside position adjacent to Porthmadog harbour. Just 20 yards from the door you can sit on the harbour wall and enjoy the stunning views, ever-changing tidal flow and watch the boats go by. The Wales Coastal Path runs directly alongside the property.
‘if you are looking for freshly baked goodies to enjoy either in the café or back at the cottage then stroll into Porthmadog to the Big Rock Café, one of my favourite cafes in the area!’ from Jacky, our local property manager
The cottage: this detached stone cottage has been converted into a simple two-bed roomed ground floor apartment. Underfloor heating in the kitchen and bathroom.
Sitting room: the open plan living/dining room is furnished with a leather sofa, armchairs, flat screen TV with entertainment channels and catch-up, DVD, iPod docking port, and WiFi. There is a wooden table and chairs with a window seat to sit in and watch the world go by.

There are two bedrooms
Bedroom 1: a king size with flat screen TV
Bedroom 2: a twin (2 ft 6 width beds which can be arranged as a double on request).
Bathroom: the modern, fully tiled bathroom, has a bath with a shower over, washbasin and WC.
Outside: there is a private car park next to the property with space for 2 cars and although Greaves Wharf House does not have its own garden it is just yards from the waterside in a conservation area and is also just around the corner from a park and play area.
A very short stroll takes you to the station for the Welsh Highland Railway or into the lively town of Porthmadog, with plenty of independent shops, cafes and restaurants. This cottage really is in a fantastic location! The superb sandy beaches of Borth-y-Gest and Black rock sands are just a mile away, the Italianate village of Portmeirion, 2 miles, the coastal path on your doorstep, and the Snowdonia National Park a short drive away.

Tucked away just a short walk from the town centre this pretty waterside area has lovely views across the quay and of the Ffestiniog Railway station. The quayside also has the benefit of a tea room, cafe and 2 small inns. Just along the harbour at the yacht club is a Thai restaurant, Thai Harbwr.
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.
During the summer there is a market held on Friday a few hundred yards along the road towards town.
RECOMMENDED LOCAL ITINERARIES

Great property in an excellent location. An unforeseeable problem with the shower was quickly dealt with by the owner who was friendly and helpful.Mr Jonathan Summers - 15th March 2020
The cottage was ideal as a start point to touring the Llyn peninsula. It was very cosy and homely and we really enjoyed our stay there.Mrs Barbara Couzens - 23rd February 2020
A great cottage with all that you would require. Bathroom a bit of a squeeze but all in all a good weeks breakLinda Cain - 5th April 2019
Lovely cottage with all that we needed. Fab weather, an excellent location for exploring. Recommend steak and ale pie at The ShipGuests - 30th March 2019
Lots of facilities, well furnished & comfortable. Especially for holidays that involve unpredictable weather, you want somewhere comfortable to veg out, read and sit out the rain.Mrs Karen Huggett - 10th September 2017
Marvelously located, comfortable and well equipped cottage. Very close to the harbour and Ffestiniog Mountain Railway (take steam train trip to Blaenau and visit Kurdish Baker in High Street). Moorings in Borth y Gest is a fantastic Bistro - booking advisable for evening - we walked there and back quite easily from Wharf Cottage. Would recommend this cottage wholeheartedly.Ms Elaine Glover - 3rd April 2017
Really enjoyed staying in this cottage. Really clean and well equipped. Nice feature having WiFi. Beds were very comfortable. Mrs J Wilson - 19th March 2017
Comfortable 3 nights, great location and enjoyed exploring surrounds while relaxing at 'home' in the evenings. Thank you!Mrs Robbins - 23rd January 2017
Lovely week here in a lovely comfortable cottage, peaceful. Had a fab Santa train ride with Ffestiniog Railway. Had a lovely day out to Caernarfon Castle. Ate out at Spooners, lunch really recommended and also the Christmas menu. We had that much food, it could have fed about 4 people, instead of the 2 of us! Sampled some 'real ale' at The Australian and Tafarn Pencei, both pubs good for real ale! As Arnie says, We'll be back!!Ray & Karen - 17th December 2016
A fabulous couple of days - great apartment and ideal for our 3 year old. Wonderful days out to Portmeirion and up Snowdon via the train.Ros, Marcus & Lottie - 23rd October 2016
Another wonderful stay in Wharf Cottage. Great trip to Caernarfon on the steam train. Dad got plenty of chats to the local people all in Welsh too! All so friendly and helpful (he's 90 now and taught himself the Welsh language when he retired). Great day in Criccieth (enjoyed meal at Dylan's). Also enjoyed day in Conwy, great Welsh rarebit there. Monty enjoyed his picture postcard walk every morning where the steam train crosses over the road.Glennys, Rachel, Giraldus & Monty - 29th September 2016
The beds were very comfortable.Mrs Davidson - 17th July 2016
Beautiful - truly 5 star. You've thought of everything and we very much appreciated your attention to detail. Porthmadog is a lovely place to visit - we really enjoyed ourselves and it was always good to know after a busy day out we had a stunning place to come back to! Your hard work has definitely paid off. Thank you!Niko - 17th August 2015
We had a lovely time and would recommend Greaves Wharf House to anyone looking to enjoy the delights of Porthmadog.Tim S - 25th April 2015
We really loved staying at Porthmadog, the house was perfect, and what an excellent location.Victoria C - 21st March 2015
We loved our stay at the Greaves Wharf House. The accommodation was very comfortable, and all the bedding, furniture, and kitchen equipment was superb. The location for us was perfect near the railway station, the Ship pub, and right on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park for walking. Really lovely.Rebecca H - 22nd November 2014
We really enjoyed our holiday and the cottage was great. Its a really good location and the kids loved the harbour. Thank you.Claire T - 26th July 2014
