    Large rooms great dining kitchen for big groups. Garden and small terrace off lounge. Bedrooms all en suite. Great views over to Anglesey. 10 min walk into Caernarfon and castle. We would definitely stay again.

  • "Thank you for the lovely stay in your holiday home."

    We had everything we needed. It was very comfortable for our two families, with plenty of space. We loved sitting outside and watching the sunset over the bay. We took nice walks into town along the path near the estuary. Thank you for the recommendations of sights to see. We had a perfect day walking along the cliffs at Trefor and saw pods of dolphins. A perfect holiday, thank you.

    Thank you Nicole for your positive feedback. I am so glad you found the recomendations for walks and places to visit so useful. Just a small point your reference to the estuary is actually the Menai Straits which is the stretch of water which runs all along between Gwynedd and Anglesey and makes Anglesey an island.

  • "The property is fantastically located just a few minutes walk from Caernarfon centre with lovely views."

    It is very comfortable to stay in with great common areas for eating and hanging out. It is well equipped with most things you would need to stay a week. It even looks fresher in person than it does in the pictures. That being said, the place is very tired. The bathrooms particularly need updating. I wouldn’t advise staying with a toddler as the lack of stair gates, doors at just the right height and not quite heavy enough and bunk beds make for a very challenging weekend!

  • "The house Preswylfa where we stayed was absolutely amazing, the house was very large, the views are fantastic and this house had everything you would expect in your own home."

    We went as a couples retreat away from the kids and do to some walking. There was many walks around the area but we decided on Devil’s Kitchen, this was supposed to have iconic views from the top but the weather did let us down as we did have to turn around 150 meters from the top due to high winds. But it was a great experience and we’re coming back next year to complete. The town nearby is also a lovely little town with plenty to do and everyone is so friendly. Overall a great weekend. 5 stars for me.

    There was lots of spaces for our group and didn’t feel cramp up even for a big group. Everything you need was there in the house, we were glad as there were tea and coffee, bread and butter ready when we arrive as we were starving and tired from long drive. The location was perfect as the shops are just around the corner. The view was magnificent as well. We enjoyed our stayed and will definitely come back again

During the season there are guided tours of the castle and special events including historic pageants. There is also a station for the Welsh Highland Railway, which passes through dramatic scenery, the village of Beddgelert and onto Porthmadog. Fishing trips are available from the harbour and another attraction within walking distance of the town centre is Segontium, a Roman fort and museum, housing many important finds. Caernarfon offers a wide selection of shops and places to eat and is close to the lovely beaches of the Isle of Anglesey and the Lleyn Peninsula as well as the mountains and rivers of Snowdonia, including the renowned mountaineering town of Llanberis at the foot of Mount Snowdon.
