Sea View is a self-catering apartment consisting of the first and second floors above the old Post Office in a double-wide terraced stone building dating back to 1903, with all modern conveniences located in the centre of historic Harlech town with the best castle and water views and the steepest street in the World (Guinness Record). With bidet!!

The space
Although there are cheaper options at the bottom of the steep hill, they require a hard walk up hill or a drive with traffic congestion with only two lanes and difficult parking to reach the shops and the castles and the hikes up the mountains. On clear days, Snowdonia is the most beautiful and serene landscape in the world, but you must plan for rainy days,too! On rainy days (its Wales) you will love seeing the castle, the ocean, the mountains, and the rainbows from the living room, dining room, and two bedrooms with large beds. It is a double wide terraced house with plenty of room. That it is called Sea View is an understatement as it offers more than the other sea views. For half a crown more it is the difference between grandeur and just lodging, like living in a turret of Harlech Castle, but nice and warm and cozy.Sea View is a self-catering apartment consisting of the first and second floors above a Menai Holidays shop in a double wide terraced stone building dating back to 1903, with all modern conveniences. Being located in the centre of historic Harlech town in upper Harlech, it will seem as if you are staying in one of the turrets of the 13th century Edwardian Harlech Castle! All of Harlech's amenities are at your doorstep, including a Spar market, tea rooms, sweet shop, pubs and restaurants. Since the Arriva train stops at Harlech, it is even possible to have a complete holiday without a car.Being in the Snowdonia National Park there are many hiking trails that begin in Harlech and go up to megalithic stone circles, cairns, and hillforts with sheep everywhere! Harlech beach is just a short walk away with a sandy beach that stretches for miles. The St. David's golf course is right out the window and close by is a train station south to Barmouth and London and north to Porthmadog and Pwllheli. With stunning sea, mountain, and castle views, this Harlech self-catering apartment with central heating and an electric fireplace is in a lovely location to just stay inside any time of the year or venture out to shop, hike, swim at the beach (30 minute walk), golf, dine, or attend the theater (10 minute walk). Given the famous Welsh rain, you will be glad to be warm inside and, though it might rain all day, you are almost guaranteed to see a spectacular sunset every evening followed by the illuminated night castle.On the first floor of this Harlech holiday let is a kitchen and a dining room, which can seat everyone in your party, and a full bathroom. The sitting room, which has leather sofas with leg-rests and two swivel chairs in the bay window, is where the spectacular views described above can be seen and, in conjunction with the snug room which has a piano, there is provided a comfortable sitting area for 10, with the snug room being perfect for children.On the second floor this Harlech self-catering apartment are five bedrooms and a full bathroom with bidet. Two of these bedrooms have a the super-king and king bed facing all the spectacular views. The other three bedrooms welcome the sunrise over the tops of the houses in the town having a king bed with shares space with the washer and dryer with its own sink, a double bed, and a room with two full size bunk beds.The small enclosed front courtyard at the back entrance at this Snowdonia self-catering apartment offers a place to relax next to the spacious garden area with the view of the majestic castle turrets, or why not take a picnic lunch and sit in the courtyard of the castle, just a few steps away!Roadside parking (limited to one hour 9am - 6pm) plus two public car parks 4 mins walk (£1 ph 8am - 6.30pm).

Dylan's grandfather from Glamorgan, Wales, was a friend of President Eisenhower and the portrait he did of him hangs in the Gallery of Presidents at the Smithsonian, Washington D.C.
