  • "The hosts were very friendly, and helpful, during our stay."

    The property itself was very well maintained and equipped with everyone you could need. It was very tastefully and thoughtfully decorated. We felt comfortable throughout our entire stay. The views from the property on a clear day were stunning. The property was very close to the nearby town of Caernarfon, which had all the amenities you could need. We would definitely recommend a stay here!

  • "Such a clean, well equipped house in an amazing location."

    Hosts were spot on with everything including a great welcome pack. Can’t fault anything, it really was worth the long drive drive to go and enjoy such a beautiful area. The house is in the middle of nowhere which is bliss but a 10 minute drive away from civilisation. We were the first people to stay at this property and I hope many more get to enjoy it.

Situated at 240 metres above sea level, enjoying breath-taking views towards Caernarfon, Menai Strait and Anglesey, Hen Gapel offers a pet-friendly, well-equipped base for a family of four, looking to explore both the coast and countryside of North Wales.

Situated adjacent to Eryri (Snowdonia) National Park and the North Wales Pilgrim’s Way, Hen Gapel is an ideal base for walking and mountain biking.

The Waunfawr train station of the scenic Welsh Highland Railway is also within walking distance.

Arriving at Hen Gapel, you will be embraced by the peace and tranquillity of the Welsh countryside, the perfect backdrop for your home-from-home.

Step inside the annexe and make yourself at home; the open-plan living space will welcome you with its warm ambience, perfect for curling up in front of the Smart TV with your favourite show.

The well-equipped kitchen is great for creating delicious meals for friends and family, while the dining area offers the perfect spot to sample your culinary creations.

If the weather is warm, why not move the party outdoors to the enclosed rear patio where you can dine alfresco?

When it’s time to rest, you will find two tastefully decorated bedrooms to choose from, including a double and a twin, both serviced by a spacious bathroom.

Once you’re ready to explore the local area, you’ll find plenty of amenities right on your doorstep, with the Snowdonia Parc Real Ale Brewpub and a small supermarket within walking distance in the village of Waunfawr.

The historic town of Caernarfon, is also within easy reach, boasting a majestic castle and a range of shops, pubs, and restaurants dotted along the marina.

For another taste of the great outdoors, venture to nearby Llanberis, where you can hike up to Dolbadarn Castle, take in the beauty of Ceunant Mawr Waterfall, and tour the National Slate Museum, before exploring the rest of the national park, with its lofty summits and stunning mountain range.

Visit Anglesey to explore the coastlines, with miles of sandy beaches perfect for sunbathing, surfing, and kayaking, before returning home in time for supper.
