Rhandir Mwyn is just outside the historic town of Caernarfon and in a convenient location to access both the mountains of Snowdonia and the fantastic coastline of north Wales. Llanberis is just a scenic 6 miles away for paths and railway up Snowdon, and the nearest beach at Dinas Dinlle is 7 miles away. The house is all on one level and has a regular bus service passing, for those who don’t want to use the car.
'take a stroll, or cycle along the sea front passing the harbour and spectacular Caernarfon castle, keep on going over the little draw bridge and down the Foryd nature reserve, for lovely views, bird watching , or for the kids, a really good play area and skateboard park!' from Jacky, our local property manager
The Cottage: is well looked after by the owner, who also prides herself on its cleanliness. The sheltered rear garden is a delight, looking over the tranquil churchyard to the hills beyond. The cottage has lots of homely touches, hand made cushions and family paintings. There is central heating throughout

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.
Loved the house, really comfortable and could not fault it in anyway. Great location to explore that part of Wales.Mrs Debra Deacon - 16th July 2018

A lovely, airy and well appointed bungalow, perfect for a family holiday. For our stay there were three adults and two under 4's. Great location, just 10-15mins to Dinas Dinlle for swimming and paddling, an ice cream, fish and chips or lunch, coffee and cake at the café. Great access to Caernarfon, the Llyn Penisula for coastal walks, Anglesey and Llandudno.Miss Chloe French - 19th August 2017
