  • "Enjoyed a 2 week stay at this property in rural tranquil Wales the property was of excellent standard and well placed for touring North Wales and Anglesey."

    The property is clean well maintained and upstairs is larger than the pictures suggest. A charming host Louise is very friendly and helpful and we would certainly use again in the future stayed June 22.

  • "This was our 3rd visit to Tryfan Cottage and it was as good as ever."

    The weather was dry but windy so that we could not do sea swimming. However the region is so beautiful and interesting that there was plenty to do of course and in fact we could not manage everything in a week. We did go round Caernarfon Castle, have a great day in lovely Llandudno, go on Ffestiniog, Welsh Highland and Llanberis Railways, view Conwy and Beaumaris castles etc, but will have to do the Lleyn Peninsular (good for swimming) next time! and Lla,

  • "In a beautiful location."

    The cottage had everything needed. The beds were comfy and the cottage was very clean. The location was perfect out of the way and quiet in the middle of the countryside but only 10 minutes away from the town. We will definitely be back. We loved seeing the steam train go by and all the wildlife.

    The cottage is extremely cosy, perfect for relaxation after a strenuous trip up Snowdon!! Directly near the cottage are various footpaths which are well worth exploring, offering stunning scenery for taking that perfect holiday photo.

  • "Fantastic quiet location, lovely old cottage, well furnished and comfortable."

    Just what we needed. Only criticism, the outdoor seating was an afterthought on a small Sloping triangle of grass. The place could do with a little more relaxed outdoor seating and the table area being level. There is loads of space outside do this.

  • "The cottage was cold and felt damp on our arrival."

    Bedding was clean but smelled musty so much so that we bought a new quilt to sleep under. Bathroom had some mildew round the window and on the net curtain and blind. Furniture was tired but adequate. It has a lot of potential and is in an excellent location being very secluded and quiet. Its definitely ready for a refurbishment and in our opinion not worth the four ticks that sykes awarded it. And certainly didn't measure up to the o other sykes properties we've stayed in over the last two years. We cut our holiday short by two days because we were so disappointed in the accommodation.

  • "This is a very cosy cottage and it is well worth staying here."

    The location is very peaceful and there are several nice walks close by. It is also quite easy to visit a lot of attractions that North Wales has to offer and is only a short drive to Caernarfon. The fact that a steam railway is a stones throw away is a real bonus and it is always a treat to see the steam engine chugging past. If I have to nit pick a bit then the shower is a definite struggle for anyone 6ft tall or over which I am. I had to pretty much bend my knees at times to fit under and also the flow for the hot water tap in the kitchen is very slow. We had to boil the kettle and pour it into the sink in order to wash up nearly every time we undertook this as the water didn't feel hot enough so that needs improving. In conclusion though this is a cottage that we would definitely visit again and we would recommend it for sure.

This Caernarfon cottage is set within seven acres of meadows and pasture which you are welcome to explore, with the owner's house nearby.

At the end of the sweeping drive is Tryfan Junction railway station, where you can join the train on the narrow gauge railway as it steams through stunning countryside between Caernarfon and Porthmadog.

This delightful Caernarfon cottage has two bedrooms, both with sloping ceilings, a cosy sitting room and a fitted kitchen with dining table.

There are exposed stone walls and beams throughout, adding character and charm to this 18th century Caernarfon cottage.

The surrounding gardens and countryside provide peace and tranquillity, with an abundance of wildlife.

The picnic table offers an ideal location to enjoy alfresco dining and mesmerising sunsets.

There are miles of walking and cycling tracks around this Caernarfon cottage, and a Slate Trail that starts at the bottom of the drive.

Snowdonia Riding Stables is nearby which offers pony trekking and for keen walkers, the mountains of Snowdonia are easily accessible, some even on foot.

Caernarfon and the beaches along the Menai Straits are just a 15-minute drive away, or you can jump on a train to Porthmadog with its Blue Flag beaches and harbour and spend an afternoon browsing the shops there.

The castles of Caernarfon, Conwy and Harlech are all within easy driving distance, as too are the fantastic beaches and coastline of the Llyn Peninsula and Anglesey.

About the location


Llanberis 8 miles; Bangor 9 miles.

Caernarfon (county town of Gwynedd) has much historic and cultural importance in North Wales. It is a popular tourist spot with its impressive 13th Century castle, well preserved town walls and delightful water front. During the season there are guided tours of the castle and special events including historic pageants. There is also a station for the Welsh Highland Railway, which passes through dramatic scenery, the village of Beddgelert and onto Porthmadog. 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.
