The walled town of Caernarfon is one of the most popular places to visit in Wales. Here are Jacky’s top 7 things to see and do whilst on your holiday in the area:
- Top of the list has to be to visit the majestic Caernarfon Castle. Open all year, great for all the family and with an interesting Welsh Fusiliers museum.
- Take a stroll, or bike ride from the castle, along the walls and past the marina (bike hire available in the town). Enjoy stunning views across the Menai Straits to Anglesey. If feeling energetic, the cycle way continues to the pretty seaside village of Port Dinorwic (Felinheli). Alternatively take it easy and wander back to the many independent shops and cafés in Caernarfon.
- The Welsh Highland Railway starts in the town and makes its journey, passing underneath Snowdon, through the mountains to Porthmadog. Beddgelert is a pretty village on en route where you can take a riverside walk, or enjoy a swim! Visit the famous Gelert’s Grave or National Trust shop and sample the very popular Glaslyn ice creams.
- For the kids there’s a great outdoor play area and skate park just across the river in Caernarfon. If the weather is not up to scratch there’s an indoor play centre for children and adults, if you dare… I haven’t managed the steepest slide yet! There’s a leisure centre with swimming pool, and on the outskirts of town, Gypsy Wood Activity Park.
- My favourite place to eat is the Black Boy Inn, good welsh pub food in a busy, lively atmosphere. Alternatively, during the day, Fron Goch Garden Centre’s award winning restaurant serving home cooked food and cakes is a few miles walk/cycle along the Welsh Highland Railway (Sunday lunch here not to be missed).
- The Foryd Nature Reserve runs along the tidal estuary from Caernarfon, enjoying great views of Caernarfon Castle and the Llŷn Peninsula. Whilst there, visit the tiny church at Llanfaglan, romantically positioned overlooking Caernarfon Bay.
- Discover the Roman Fort of Segontium on the outskirts of Caernarfon. Built to defend the Roman empire against rebellious tribes, the fort survived until the end of the Roman occupation of Britain, no other fort in Wales was held for so long.
The cottage was very clean and welcoming on arrival. There was a lovely welcome pack containing a selection of Welsh "goodies"Mr John Poulter - 18th June 2018
We appreciated the warm welcome, advice on walking and cycling routes and the extras - milk in fridge, Welsh mini-hamper, wood for fire.Mr Tom Cartwright - 7th June 2018
This was our forth stay at the Lodge y From and it won't be our last. We keep returning year after year because of the fantastic location, access to the mountains and coast and great cycling. There's always plenty to do and we never tire of the place.Dr Christine Lloyd-Betts - 21st May 2018
Fantastic location, lovely garden and very pleasant property. I would go back and recommend.Pam Cowburn - 9th May 2018
We very much enjoyed our lodge that we stayed in, it was very clean and cosy and furnished with everything that you may need. It was in a great location very peaceful and quiet but not far from amenities and benefited from spectacular views. We appreciated the thoughtful treats that were left for us to enjoy especially after a long journey. The website was very easy to use and the service was very efficient and friendly. Mrs Emma Jones - 20th February 2018
Excellent cottage in a good location. Walks start from the front door, and its an easy and quick journey into the Snowdon mountains. A constant supply of logs kept us warm and cozy through the stay. Really excellent property, stayed here before and will stay here again.Dr Roy Betts - 2nd January 2018
The cottage was in a lovely position. The owners are very nice and accommodating. We had family visit for bbqs and they were happy with that and flexible with car parking. Lovely field to walk the dogs. Nice welcome basket and location. The kitchen was well-equipped.Miss Hayley Cook - 10th July 2017
A super dog friendly property in a beautifully quiet, safe and convenient location. The welcome pack, including a delicious fruit cake and bottle of wine, was a lovely touch which was much appreciated. The accommodation is well arranged, and the whole house had a pleasant homely atmosphere. Wouldn't hesitate recommending it to anyone, and would love to revisit at some time in the future. Snowdonia is a super destination for a holiday, especially for those who enjoy exploring the great scenery we have in this country. There are so many places of interest to visit, mountains to climb and railways to enjoy ... looking forward to returning soon! Thanks for contributing to our super holiday.Mr B Green - 5th July 2017

What a lovely cottage in a wonderful location, the views are excellent. We are regular visitors to North Wales but have never stayed in this area before.

We have stayed in lots of cottages & this is up there with the best!Mrs Bairstow - 6th May 2015
