Welcome to Penaber Bed and Breakfast where Gary & Mary's aim is to make your stay as enjoyable, comfortable and relaxed as possible. Penaber is a distinctive detached residence standing in nearly an acre of land; It was built in the 1930s and individually designed by a well known local architect. The house is situated on the Morfa Bychan road a 1/4 of a mile from Porthmadog, it sits in its own grounds with a private driveway for safe off-road parking. Penaber had stood empty for nearly 30 years until we bought it in 2002 and had it fully renovated. The house is ideally situated to reach local attractions and places of interest in the area such as Portmeirion, Mount Snowdon, many Castles, slate and copper mines, zip wires a number of narrow gauge railways, and many golf courses, all of which are too many to mention, and not forgetting the beautiful beaches. Activities can include sailing, water sports, golfing, fishing, rambling, sightseeing or just relaxing. The house is a good central base for all activities and attractions Borth y Gest is located a 10 minute walk from the house it is a pretty harbour village on the shores of the Glaslyn estuary commanding views of both mountains and sea. With easy access onto the Welsh Coastal path The busy seaside town of Porthmadog is a 15 minute walk away, it's on the border of Snowdonia and the Llyn peninsula. Porthmadog has an ample supply of eating places from cafes , pubs to bistros and restaurants, It is also the home of the Purplemoose micro brewery Although having few high street names, Porthmadog is an excellent shopping centre with a huge variety of small, independent, locally owned shops, from book-shops to music shops, where you can find almost anything you need. There is a leisure centre (Canolfan Hamdden Glaslyn) and at Morfa Bychan there is Black Rock Sands, a popular two mile long sandy beach, with views of Harlech and Criccieth castles. Penaber has one twin and two double rooms, all the rooms are en-suite and are tastefully decorated, the house is strictly non-smoking. They have tea and coffee making facilities and a 32 inch television with a dvd player and also free Wi-Fi is available The rooms are priced from £75 per night inclusive of Full Welsh Breakfast depending on seasons.

B&B from heaven.... On arriving we were welcome by both owners Mary & Gary, both could not of given more of a welcoming! The B&B stands in its own grounds looking out to fields, trees, birds and tranquility. Hospitality is highly rated couldn't ask for more welcoming people. The breakfast is everything you need to start the day from an array of cereals, fruit and of course a delicious welsh breakfast. All the bedrooms are very spacious with ensuite facilities. All rooms are decorated to a high standard. Our room (3) looked out to the far side of the property, lovely to hearing the bird call in the morning. The B&B is about 10min walk to Borth Y Gest down hill to the quaint harbour with loving walks to private sanding coves. Alternatively Porthmadog is about 15mins down hill for a little retail theraphy or a refeshment or two!. Both area you can catch a taxi that don't cost the earth. The B&B is across from Tyddyn Llwyn so ideal if you have family with tourers and you can the luxury of the B&B! Penaber comes highly rated and will not be our last time of visiting. Thank you 🌈

We had a 3-night stay at this wonderful B&B and can't recommend it highly enough. The property is well positioned within easy walking distance of Porthmadoc, and offers everything the discerning guest could wish for. The rooms are very spacious and airy, well appointed and everything excellent quality. Mary and Gary were the perfect hosts - their attention to detail deserves mention and they couldn't have been more helpful throughout our stay. Breakfast was first-class - quality produce and everything beautifully presented. This is an absolute gem of a B&B - fautless. We will be making a return visit soon!

We enjoyed a 6 night stay in this lovely B&B which is set in a peaceful location & within walking distance of Porthmadog. Mary & Gary are very friendly, made us most welcome and cooked superb breakfasts. Our bedroom was spacious, extremely comfortable & overlooked the attractive garden. We highly recommend Penaber & hope to stay there again.
