The Gardener's Bothy
Before Clough bought Portmeirion, the cottage now known as Mermaid was used as a gardener's bothy. Mermaid now contains two rather nice village suites.

It's well worth a walk round the village before breakfast if you're staying in one of the cottages.

Just round the corner from the lighthouse (beyond White Horses), you'll find this perfect spot for a sit down.

Portmeirion Film Set
One time when I visited Portmeirion there was some filming taking place - the Piazza area was illuminated by several large film set lights, giving quite a different look to an evening shot. It would have been rude not to snap a few shots!!!
One of my favorite views at Portmeirion - the road down to the hotel as it passes Arches and the Town Hall on the right, with Trinity, Neptune and Angel on the left.
Shot early in the morning using a Lensbaby Velvet 56, given the black & white treatment and a little additional texture.
