Town: With such a great degree of historic and cultural importance in North Wales the town of Caernarfon is a popular resort, boasting an impressive 13th Century castle, well preserved town walls and a pretty water front. The castle is host to a number of fascinating activities throughout the year including numerous pageants and guided tours during the summer months. The Welsh Highland Railway also passes through the town's station and takes visitors on a tour through the region's dramatic scenery. Fishing trips are also available from the harbour whilst within walking distance of the town centre, visitors can find Segontium, - a Roman fort and museum - housing many important finds. With excellent shops and places to eat, this fascinating town makes a great place from which to explore the lovely beaches of the Isle of Anglesey and the Lleyn Peninsula as well as the mountains and rivers of Snowdonia.

Comfortable, cosy, well equipped and well positioned. Good for walking into town or around the coast, and Caenarfon makes an ideal place to stay for exploring Snowdonia and around. Owners were friendly and helpful. Car parking can be quite a way away which didn't bother us but may be a problem for some - though you can drive right to the door for pick up and drop off etc. One of the showers might need looking at as was possibly a leak somewhere.

The property was situated within the walls of Caernarfon Castle, and was in walking distance of all amenities. The cottage was spotlessly clean and well stocked, including a welcome bottle of wine and profiteroles. Only two problems, one was an enormous bed in a small bedroom, difficult to access for an elderly mobility challenged visitor, and the lack of wardrobes.

The owner was very helpful whilst allowing us the space to enjoy our break.
The property was clean and conveniently situated.
The local pubs offered a wide veriety of good food.
There is a great chippy at the end of the street for the lazy nights in.

This was a perfect location for us to stay. Just inside the old castle walls ideal for exploring the nearby town and shops and finding the pubs and restaurants.
We used this as a base to go and explore the beautifull surroundings and was not dissapointed.
The service was superb as was the accomodation. Everyone throughly enjoyed it.
