  • "Our stay was lovely."

    Nice touch with the gifts on arrival. Quaint cottage well equipped.

  • "It is a lovely well furnished and equipped cottage inside an enclosed small garden and courtyard, which catches the sun and with gated off road parking."

    The bypass is complete, there is some traffic noise but it is not intrusive. We could see that prior to the bypass it would have been quite noisy but as we say it is fine now. As luck would have it the Newborough Arms pub, 50 yds up the road, re-opened, after 2 years, a couple of days before we arrived. We were one of the first to sample their Sunday lunch which was very good and later in the week (at moment only food Thurs, Fri, & Saturday with Sunday lunch) we had another meal which was also very good. The landlord said they were fully booked for the following Sunday .We had a warm welcome. In the village there is a small Morrisons less than 2 min walk up the road and there is a fish and chip shop which we did not try. There is a large Tesco about 5 min drive towards Caernarvon. The location is good with Snowdonia, the coast and Angelsey easily accessible. We had a good week in May touring and exploring Snowdonia and the Coast which is all stunning. We recommend this cottage.

  • "Great location for exploring Anglesey and Snowdonia."

    No problems with road noise as per older reviews as the new bypass is now open diverting traffic away from the town. Off road parking and gate to road was nice to have with small kids. Property had everything that we needed. Thank you :-)

  • "Uneven kitchen floor needs attending."

    Otherwise lovely cottage, well equipped with comfortable bedrooms. Hostess had gone the extra mile to create welcoming atmosphere with a bunch of carnations, milk for tea in the fridge with a bottle of bubbly to enjoy later. Exceeded our expectations! Lovely cottage, lovely neighbours, lovely country.

  • "The cottage was clean, cozy and well-equipped."

    It was a good location for everything we wanted to do, including kayaking at Llanberis, ponytrekking and surfing on Anglesey. Caernarvon is a short car or bus ride away, but the village store stocks most essentials. The road outside the cottage was very busy, which required some coordination getting in and out, opening and shutting the gate to the property, but a new bypass will be opening in early 2022 and so I imagine that challenge will diminish. All in all, the cottage served our needs well.

  • "Picked this cottage due to family history (great grandma born there in 1892) and its a lovely cosy comfortable cottage."

    Shame the main road is so busy, hopefully on next visit the new bypass will change this.

  • "Superb holiday in North Wales."

    The cottage was ideal for our needs - all the amenities we need in a great location. If you want super luxury or are looking for somewhere quiet or a quaint village location, then Ty Capel is not for you. It's situated on a really busy road, with constant road noise and only one shop within walking distance. However if you are looking for a base from which to explore North Wales then its absolutely perfect. 40 minutes from the affluence of Abersoch in one direction and 40 minutes to the fantastic beaches of Anglesey in the other direction. With excellent walking and lake activity in Snowdon, and activity centre at Glasfryn, along with a non-traffic cycle route pretty much outside the cottage. Top holiday :)

  • "The description of the cottage said there was a pub in the village."

    This was an important factor in my decision to rent the property. There is no pub!!!! Also the village itself is unattractive and has a very busy road running through just a few yards from the property. The shower one-off switch is unreliable and clearly needs attention. As a whole Ty Capel is comfortable, attractive and well equipped.

  • "Just one minor complaint, the pub in the village has apparently been shut for quite a few months, so the description needs editing."

    Delightful cottage (will be even better when the local by-pass is completed taking a lot of traffic away from the cottage, easier access, less noise) everything we expected and more, would certainly consider using again as it is ideally situated.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at Ty Capel, the cottage was very clean and tidy upon our arrival and were greeted with lovely goodies on the table, beyond our expectations."

    Television reception was very poor, contacted the owner on the number provided, she immediately attended to it and arranged with us for a technician to visit, which he did and the following day we left him to do the necessary, after which the reception was perfect. On a main road but this did not bother us whilst in the cottage, expect for sirens, every now and again, but not easy to go in and out due to the traffic. Beds were very comfortable, plenty hot water for showers. All in all we had a most lovely week out and about and the cottage was perfect for us.

  • "The cottage is in a good location to explore the many places in Wales."

    The comfort - whilst the cottage is lovely and cosy on the whole the seating in the living room (mainly the 2 chairs) limited the opportunity to really relax after being out all day however we appreciate that space impacts on this.

  • "Could have done with a maiden."

    There's a washer if you needed it which was awesome (first property we've been to with one) but being in the UK there was nowhere to dry indoors if you wanted to use it. Apart from that was awesome, owner was quick to answer any queries when we were in the property. Chippy is good, shame the pub has closed down due to covid 19 so that needs adjusting in the listing.

  • "The settee in the lounge was very low and not comfortable."

    Location is good but difficult to park at the premises due to the main road. Local pub, only a few yards away, was very good as was the food there. Cottage was very clean with all the facilities you need. Good location for getting all around North Wales.

  • "I have just returned from a lovely weeks holiday."

    The cottage was perfect for us (2 friends). It had everything we needed and the location was perfect for exploring Wales from the beach to the mountains. Very convenient with shop and food outlets directly opposite and pub with restaurant 2 doors away. We didn't try the food in the restaurant so can't comment on that. We did however find a cafe in Caernarfon Cafi Cei witch did a great breakfast with views of the castle. Galeri was a great spot for afternoon coffee over looking the harbour, and I soul recommend a boat trip on the Menai straights. We were lucky with the weather so didn't have to use the log burner but I could imagine very cosy nights in, in the cooler months. Overall accommodation and location top marks all round. Thank you

About the location


Caernarfon 2 miles; Llanberis 8.5 miles; Bangor 11 miles

Bontnewydd is a village sitting just outside of Caernarfon in North Wales, it sits at the confluence of the Rivers Beuno and Gwyrfair. The village offers a couple of shops, a fish and chip shop and a friendly pub serving food. The royal town of Caernarfon is just two miles away, dominated by a stunning castle, a wealth of charming buildings and many amenities. As well as miles of idyllic coastline at your doorstep, the renowned Snowdonia National Park is also within easy reach, boasting dominating mountains with breath-taking walking and cycling country to explore, as well as activities such as Bounce Below and Zip World for the thrill-seekers. The picturesque village of Llanberis is easy to reach and offers much to the visitor including the National Slate Museum, Llanberis Lake Railway, Castell Dolbadarn and more. Also worth a visit is the city of Bangor, while the Isle of Anglesey, slightly further afield, plays host to a wealth of unspoilt countryside, heritage and much to see and do.
