  • "Wonderful stay in the perfect location to explore North Wales."

    Having three generations, 13 to 81 year old, on holiday we look for comfort and modern amenities for our stays to keep everyone happy. Im happy to say that Caer Moel turned out to be ideal. The house combines cosy spaces with a fabulous open kitchen dining area which turned into our evening board games room. Everything about the house feels well maintained and designed to give you a very comfortable stay. The location is ideal for exploring all of North Wales and provides a great private space to relax. The only noise we heard all stay was the wee toot-toot of the steam train going by mid morning. We'd definitely recommend Cae Moel for a family stay.

    Within 2 hours of my phoning Rhian, Whyn had been round and sorted it out. A lovely friendly couple with a professional attitude to their guests. The house was light, spacious, very comfortable and spotlessly clean. With pleasant views it was within easy reach of all the places we wanted to visit but lovely and peaceful. We’ll be going back soon.

    The cottage was spacious and beautifully decorated. We definitely didn't want to come home. The little steam train passing each day was a joy to see. Historic Caernarfon was in easy reach. We visited many beautiful places just by simply pointing the car in any direction. Thank you to the owners for the little extras! Can't wait to visit again soon! Gaynor and family

    It’s in a great location, being close to the Castles of Caernarfon, Beaumaris and Conwy, but also near to the beach and the heart of Snowdonia. From the initial contact with the owner, regarding queries on what was provided at the house, then the Welcoming visit to make sure we had everything we needed, through to leaving the property, the owner was extremely helpful. Thank you - especially for providing the sun parasol which was greatly appreciated given the hot weather. It was also nice to have a lawn area with some shade. The house itself was extremely clean with plenty of space. The kitchen was well equipped with tea towels and a hand towel provided. There was an outside washing line and indoors clothes airer to dry wet towels and clothing. The king sized beds (the only ones slept in) were extremely comfortable. Highly recommended. A lovely place to stay with a delightful host.

    In the current COVID climate we appreciate that holidays at home are very much in demand, and can thoroughly recommend Caer Moel as an ideal location from which to explore this beautiful part of Wales. Our only slight criticism is that for the money paid (and bearing in mind this was a summer holiday), it would have been quite nice to have had a BBQ facility available. That said, the owners kindly raised no objection to our use of disposable BBQs. We were there to celebrate our ruby wedding with our family, and can confirm that Caer Moel played an important part in ensuring we had a happy and memorable experience.

    The cottage is ideally situated in beautiful countryside yet within a few miles of Caernarfon with its restaurants, pubs, shops, boat trips and, of course, the magnificent castle. The cottage is quiet and peaceful, the only noise coming from the infrequent steam trains (the wonderful Welsh Highland Line) passing the end of the garden. The cottage is, in effect, a completely detached building with a large garden, patio and scenic views over the distant hills towards Snowdonia. There’s plenty of space around the cottage too – the immediate surroundings are mainly fields and woods. The very large kitchen and dining room, and bathrooms are modern with all of the facilities you would expect in a brand-new building. The living room and bedrooms are furnished in an older, more comfortable style and are very cosy. The rooms are big, with plenty of space for a large group. And, of course, the bottles of wine and welsh cakes were very much appreciated.

The property

Caernarfon 3 miles.

A beautifully-appointed farmhouse located in a rural location, surrounded by open countryside and mountainous scenery, set in a quiet courtyard, on the owners’ smallholding, close to Caernarfon.

Perfectly located, Caer Moel provides an ideal base for couples, friends and families wishing to spend quality time together whilst being centrally situated for all that Snowdonia and the North Wales coast has to offer.

Sympathetically and imaginatively refurbished to a high standard, the original part of the farmhouse exudes charm and character with the sitting room boasting exposed ceiling beams and a wonderful inglenook fireplace housing a warming, electric woodburner-effect stove.

The character is also seen in the extended part of the farmhouse, which blends beautifully with the light and spacious kitchen with integrated appliances and an electric range cooker.

The kitchen extends to a wonderful dining area with a high-pitched ceiling and lots of natural light from the large window, along with patio doors which lead to a seating area outside, perfect for alfresco dining.

From the dining area, French doors lead to a beautiful rear hallway with double height ceiling and a bespoke oak and glass split-level staircase taking you up to a mezzanine landing area, a perfect place for a little ‘me’ time.

A ground floor bedroom with an en-suite shower room is perfect for members of the group who may find stairs a little tricky and also benefits from having a super king-size bed which can also be made up as a twin.

Upstairs, there are three good-sized bedrooms, each individually furnished and styled to suit all and benefit from lovely views, taking in open fields and the surrounding countryside, and completing the accommodation is an upstairs bathroom.

Outside there's lovely block paved patio areas and seating areas of crushed slate, so peaceful and tranquil, with only the sheep and cows in the adjoining fields for company.

There are lots of walks to enjoy from the cottage, each taking in some wonderful scenery along the way, and within a couple of miles you can enjoy a day on the beautiful Blue flag beach at Dinas Dinlle.

If you need to stock up on the essentials, venture to the nearby Morrisons Daily in Bontnewydd, or if you don't feel like cooking, why not treat your loved ones to some hearty fare at the Newborough Arms Pub.

There is also a handy Millets store only paces away from the property so you can ensure you have everything you need for your fun-filled adventures; discover the Dinas station of the Welsh Highland Railway close by which dates to the 1800s and is steeped in local history.

The historic harbour town of Caernarfon boasts a wide selection of independent and high street shops, bars, cafés and restaurants.

The town is dominated by the majestic medieval castle which overlooks the harbour and is also home to the Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railway which runs through some stunning countryside.

Caer Moel is one holiday cottage you’ll want to return to time and time again.
