    “Bangor is a very good hub to access ...”

    Bangor is a very good hub to access multiple points of interest such as Zip World, Snowdon, the Puffin Island and local beaches.

    Bangor is a very good hub to access multiple points of interest such as Zip World, Snowdon, the Puffin Island and local beaches. The location is very good, one minute away from the ocean and 5 from the pier. We really enjoyed our stay as the house was very cosy and well equipped.

The property

This delightful Victorian end of terrace property is situated in the vibrant city of Bangor, and with many Victorian properties, Swyn y Gwynt is no exception when it comes to character features and high ceilings.

Located on a residential street, in an urban environment this delightful cottage, as the name ‘Sound of the Wind’ suggests, enjoys the sea breezes which are prominent here, and boasts lovely sea views overlooking the historic Porth Penrhyn.

Having undergone a successful scheme of refurbishment this lovely, homely cottage offers all the home comforts whilst blending traditional styling with some modern and contemporary influences.

Swyn y Gwynt is a great base for exploring this lovely area, as well as Bangor’s splendid pier which is close by and is perfectly placed for the universities too, and would suit couples, two friends or a small family.

Downstairs offers a spacious sitting room with bay window and an open fire, a sofa bed offers some flexibility to the sleeping arrangements, and a well-appointed and equipped kitchen with dining area and patio doors is a great spot to enjoy a family breakfast.

Upstairs are the two bedrooms, the main bedroom boasting sea views, both serviced by the family bathroom with a traditional style suite.

Outside, accessed through the patio doors off the kitchen is a private, enclosed courtyard.

An ideal place to sit and relax, enjoy the evening sun with a drink and an early supper, alfresco.

This lovely cottage is ideally situated for exploring Snowdonia and Anglesey.

Walking and cycle routes are close by, in fact the start of Lon Las Ogwen is a great one to start with, and the route follows a disused railway line from the port up into the mountains and the Penrhyn slate quarries above Bethesda and Zip World Velocity, the world’s fastest zip wire.

Penrhyn Castle, a National Trust property, is just five minutes by car.

The walled town of Caernarfon with its medieval castle is just 10 minutes’ drive away, and is the starting point for the spectacular Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railway, a 25-mile-long narrow gauge railway that twists and turns its way through some of Snowdonia’s most wonderful scenery.

Swyn y Gwynt is a great place to stay anytime of the year!

About the location


Menai Bridge 2.5 miles; Beaumaris 7 miles; Caernarfon 10 miles; Llanberis 11 miles.

Bangor is a university town on the North Wales coast with a large range of shops, bars and restaurants. It is the main crossing point for the Isle of Anglesey with two road bridges across the Menai Strait. Across the water, the castle and pier at Beaumaris make a lovely day out, or you can catch a boat to enjoy a trip out to Puffin Island. The Anglesey Coastal Path takes in beautiful scenery, and the island is home to many fine beaches including Rhosneigr, Trearddur Bay and Red Wharf Bay. The NT mansion Plas Newydd is on the island, while on the mainland further NT properties can be found including Penrhyn Castle and Bodnant Gardens. The spectacular mountains and lakes of Snowdonia are just a short drive way, with plenty of castles, beaches and other attractions on offer in this wonderful region. Bangor and the Menai Straits really do offer the best of both worlds!
