    It was lovely to arrive and find not only essentials (milk, bread, butter) but also oft-needed items such as laundry capsules, dishwashing tablets etc, as well as some added treats and some beautiful daffodils throughout the house, which were much appreciated by all and a lovely touch. The accommodation (every room with en-suite and the family room with bunks) is some of the best we have stayed in. We have extended family in the area and will certainly be back, its position for being able to walk into town is fantastic. Thank you for a great stay in your beautiful home!

    Thank you for your super, positive response and we look forward to your return visit in the future. Property Owner

  • "It was a family holiday with 2 sets of grandparents, our children and grandchildren to celebrate New Year."

    We chose the house as it gave us all a bedroom with en suite and plenty of space to be comfortably together and relax. The house was a very short walk from Canarfon and the castle and although the weather wasn't great we did manage to get out without moving the cars. Only thing to mention is that the recycling from the previous guests hadn't been collected so we had to leave ours I bin bags beside the recycling boxes (sorry about that, maybe extra boxes needed when the house is full). We all enjoyed the time together and the house very much.

    Thank you for your positive comments about the house and its location within a short walk to the centre with all its facilities. Regarding the recycling bins, they are normally collected weekly but this collection was due between Christmas and New Year, so was obviously missed. We do have spare recycling boxes and would have happily put them out ,if the guests had rung. Property Owner

  • "We had a very relaxing stay here and would recommend."

    Everything was as listed, the property is spacious, homely and the area is quiet. The view from the bedrooms and balcony is beautiful, especially when the sun sets. Shops are a short walk away and there is plenty to do in the local area and beyond. Would recommend others check out Dinas Dinlle beach, parts of it are dog friendly, it is picturesque, very clean and a 15 minute drive away. If you can, go up Snowdon, the views are incredible. For anyone who loves art check out Life:FullColour art gallery, which is in the town. They have different exhibitions and are super friendly. If you have a sweet tooth, then head down to Ridiculously Rich at the marina and The Black Boy Inn for a pint. The key safe was the only tricky bit. 2 adults couldn’t open it, luckily the teenager could!

  • "Fabulous holiday home for a large group."

    Views of the coasts from the house were amazing. Plenty of space for everyone to relax and be together comfortably. Facilities in the house were very good. Providing items like washing tabs, soap and dishwasher tabs were an added bonus (guests always forget some). However, I would suggest providing an extra frying pan would help guests cooking for 10. The ovens took longer than usual to cook items, extra oven shelves and shallow baking trays would help future guests. Location excellent, short walk into town and lots of supermarkets really close by too. A great find, highly recommend

    Thank you for your kind comments about the house and providing all the extra items. We have noted your comments about the kitchen items and have now put in an extra frying pan and and two shallow baking trays. Co-incidentally the cooker was down for its yearly service last week and and has passed its safety certificate with flying colours. Property Owner

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.

    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!

    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.

It is a popular tourist spot with its impressive 13th Century castle, well preserved town walls and delightful water front. 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.
