About Jennifer Chisholm

This was my childhood home and although I have lived in the Midlands for 40 years I need to come back to the sea and mountains as often as I can. The house has been much loved and I only hope that guests will love it too.

Jennifer Chisholm purchased this house in 1997

Why Jennifer Chisholm chose Gwynedd - Snowdonia

I bought the property from my parents to enable them to enjoy living there and have peace of mind with no financial worries. I love the area so much that I can't let the place go so decided to try holiday lets to help pay for the upkeep. I want people to enjoy my home and the surrounding areas.

What makes this house unique

I love being able to leave my car and walk with the dog to all the lovely places. I can spend hours enjoying the mountain and sea views. The house is comfortable but not so posh that you end up worrying about using it. Everything I need is on my doorstep.

Wonderful! 4.8/5 -

Fantastic location, very helpful owner. We had a lovely stay.

  • 5 of 5

Very good location, we really enjoyed our stay. Porthmadog is a lovely little town to potter around and we had some lovely day trips to Portmerion, Snowdon, and on the railway. There were a few teething problems with the house as we were the first of the season to stay, but Jenny the owner was brilliant about it, very helpful and keen to sort things out and ensure we enjoyed our stay. The house was comfortable and we had everything we needed, lovely to have a courtyard garden, we were lucky enough to have a beautiful sunny week, so could sit outside.

Good time had by all - including Jake our dog!

  • 4 of 5

The house was very clean, very roomy, very comfy warm, well-equipped kitchen and good wi-fi. Lovely patio out the back but weather unfortunately not warm enough to use it much! Jenny hugely helpful when we had a concern (couldn't get in door when we arrived!) or a need (Dyson vacuum cleaner locked in linen room). She was very quick to sort us out and I feel we have become quite good 'texting friends'! If we ever revisit Porthmadog we will definitely stay here again.

Comfortable,Clean and Homely

  • 5 of 5

Spent an enjoyable long weekend with my husband, son and his young family. Jenny ensured that my young grandaughter was well catered for with good quality highchair and travel cot which saved us having to pack our stuff!!

The house is ideally located to explore Snowdonia as well as the lovely little villages in the area. My husband and I even managed to get a game of golf in at Portmadog Golf Club which is just up the road.

As we had our grandaughter with us, we stayed in during the evenings which wasn't a problem as the house has great wifi for those of us that couldn't be without our technology and also there are plenty of books to borrow and board games which kept us entertained. Nice touch!

Great place to spend a couple of days. Shall definitely be back but next time will make it a longer stay!

Oh and one last thing, the beds are verrrry, verrrry comfy!!!

Thanks Jenny. A lovely home from home xxx

Ideal location

  • 5 of 5

It was a real home from home and set in just the right place for local shops, Pubs and restaurants. I went with my local camera club very close to so many scenic places. Quiet street but you may struggle for parking if you go in more than one car. The house was very clean and cosy. Will be going back next year.

Ideal location for visiting North West Wales

  • 5 of 5

The house is ideally placed for visiting North West Wales. The location within Porthmadog is really good. Although New Street is just off the main street, parking was never an issue, there was always a space within 100 yards of the house. The house itself was very spacious and well equipped with everything we needed. All the bedrooms and the reception rooms were large and gave us more than enough personal space. The courtyard garden was a suntrap in the afternoon. All in all, it is a good house in a good location, highly recommened.
