  • "Just returned from a relaxing stay at Glan Gwna Bach."

    Comfortable cottage, which was very well stocked, and had every thing we needed . We had many cosy evenings relaxing around the log burner. Within driving distance of many different places to visit. Thank you for a lovely getaway!

  • "This cottage would be lovely during the summer months, however not in the colder autumn/winter months, firstly l would say the kitchen was extremely well furnished although as mentioned by other guests there is no freezer or ice box in the fridge."

    The first problem encountered was the key box l had to use the torch on my mobile to see the numbers on the box there is no switch for the porch light outside also when you open it the front of the box comes away l also had the same problem when leaving. The water is heated by solar panels which are on a roof with large tree branches hanging over them so not ideal in the colder months of the year when there is not so much sun, we tried to follow the instructions left by the owners to get hot water through the taps but to no avail so we rang the caretakers who were very helpful in talking us through how to use the booster box. The only radiator which was warm was behind the settee in the dining room the thermostat controlling the heating system was not working luckily it was not cold but a bit more heat would have been welcomed. The final point is the bathroom myself and others in our party are in our middle to late sixties and getting into the bath for the overhead shower in what is a small bathroom is not easy. This is the fourth cottage we have rented through Skyes and l must say it is far from the best therefore we will not be returning.

  • "We were very comfortable during our stay."

    The house is spacious, beautifully decorated and had good facilities. The property is secluded with a large pretty garden. It is well located with Caernarfon and Snowdon close by. We had a lovely holiday and we’re sad to leave.

  • "This is a lovely cottage, in a great location and we would return."

    I would point out that there is no freezer at this property and no ice box in the fridge. On a very hot day, with the Aga constantly on, there is no facility to keep an ice cream or have ice. We took our ice maker which was a life saver in the heat. Also only one bath towel is provided for each guest with a hand towel provided in each bathroom. As there were three ladies, and we use hand towels for our hair it would be helpful to provide one for each guest. Apart from that, it had everything you need for a lovely comfortable holiday.

  • "The bed's were very soft (maybe time to replace)."

    In the second bedroom maybe have a move round of the furniture it is very awkward to get out of the bed because it's up against the wall you have to climb over your partner

The property

Caernarfon 2.3 miles.

Tucked away in the rural village of Caeathro, you will find this traditional Welsh cottage.

A spacious dwelling that has been appointed with charming interiors throughout, Glan Gwna Bach makes a fabulous choice for a family or group of five who seek an unforgettable escape to North Wales.

As you step inside this homely abode, be welcomed into a pretty country kitchen and discover a sea of appliances such as a striking oil-fired AGA, helping you to cook up a storm.

Move your way into the warm and inviting living/dining room where you can take a seat at the table and indulge in many mouth-watering meals, or allow yourself to feel right at home as you snuggle up on the plush corner sofa and enjoy an entertaining movie on the TV.

Beyond here, a second sitting room offers a relaxing space to rest and recuperate by the woodburning stove following an action-packed adventure exploring the local area, whilst across the way a quaint snug with an gas fire is ideal for those who wish to escape the excitement.

When you begin to feel yourself tired, climb the wood staircase up to the first floor and discover three inviting bedrooms made up of a king-size with en-suite cloakroom, a double and a single.

There is a light and airy bathroom on the ground floor featuring both a sizable p-shaped bath and overhead shower, allowing you to choose how to best prepare for the day ahead.

Make the most of warmer climates with summer days spent out in the gardens, basking in the sunshine out on the patio or delighting in a lovingly prepared picnic as you lounge on the well-manicured lawn.

When ready to see the sights, grab your comfiest walking boots and set about on a scenic walk to the centre of Caernarfon where you can explore the ancient stronghold of Caernarfon Castle and the ancient town walls.

See the Segontium Roman Fort or challenge yourself to a hike to the top of Ben Twthill.

Spend the day at GreenWood Family Park, or travel to Llanfairpwllgwyngyll on the Isle of Anglesey for a tour of the National Trust owned Plas Newydd House and Gardens.

Spot exotic and colourful fish at the Anglesey Sea Zoo, or embark on a breath-taking hike along the shores of the Isle of Anglesey Coast Path and uncover magnificent landscapes such as Llys Rhosyr, St Gwenfaen's Well and South Stack lighthouse.

Over in Llanberis there's much fun to be had at Dolbadarn Castle and Ceunant Mawr Waterfall and, or see the luscious green landscapes of the gorgeous Welsh countryside with a ride to the peak of Mount Snowdon with Snowdon Mountain Railway.

Wine and dine in some of the finest bars and restaurants that fill the town of Caernarfon, or grab ingredients from the local supermarket ahead of a quiet evening indoors.

Live life to the fullest on an unforgettable escape to Glan Gwna Bach.

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.
