About the property

2 Bedroom Apartment in Porthcawl, Wales - 8 Min Walk from A Blue Flag Beach

A 1st floor apartment situated in the quiet Rest Bay area of Porthcawl. The accommodation comprises of one double bedroom and one twin with 2 single beds. A comfortable sitting/dining room a well equipped kitchen and spacious family bathroom. The nearby beach (8 min walk), Rest Bay, is a beautiful, sandy, west facing, blue flag beach on the ‘Glamorgan Heritage Coast’. At just over a mile long it offers plenty of opportunities for all-weather surfing on one of South Wales best known surf spots, safe in the knowledge that during the summer months there is a manned life guard station. It is also excellent for beach casting for Sea Bass, ‘rock pooling’ or just relaxing. For the golfer the area is well catered with four excellent courses including The Royal Porthcawl, probably one of the best courses in Wales. The flat is perfectly situated to enjoy the nearby Kenfig Pool Nature Reserve with its lake and sand dunes. It is also not far to the beautiful Gower Peninsular and Brecon Beacons.

About Guy Morgan

I have been holidaying in Porthcawl since I was a lad. My grandparents had a house just down the road and holidays were spent on the beach rock pooling, building sandcastles and donkey rides, not much has changed! well maybe not so much sandcastle these days. I still love the beach and what ever the weather will go for a walk.

Guy Morgan purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Guy Morgan chose Porthcawl

Having spent so many lovely holidays in Porthcawl as a child when the opportunity arose to buy a holiday place the natural choice was here. It's close to the beach and easy to get to.

What makes this apartment unique

It gives you the chance to get away from it all whilst still having good local facilities. It's a spacious apartment that still feels cosy and relaxed.

Well equipped, great location

  • 5 of 5

The flat is as described. We had a great few days here. The tea tray and wine was a lovely welcome gesture. We developed ourselves a nice loop to walk beginning by heading to Rest Bay to the right and walking along to the sand dunes, stopping for a cuppa at Malcs (unfortunately soon to close) and then continuing along the coast into town. We particularly enjoyed stopping for a drink at the harbour bar where the drinks weren't as expensive as the place suggested - although the food was out of our league - chips on the seafront was much more our thing. We then followed the coast back to the apartment - a standard walk of around 25 minutes. Nature reserves are nearby plus easy access to the Gower and Brecons. There's a fashion outlet, superstore and cinema around 15 away by car. Rest Bay was also popular with surfers.

We pretty much stayed in Porthcawl as we wanted a quiet few days but there are many possibilities
