In a stunning position, with views both across to the sea and the mountains, Ty Eiddew was the original farmhouse on this working farm near Llanfaglan, 2 miles from Caernarfon. This property is in a great location, with easy access to the beaches of the Lleyn Peninsula and the mountains and attractions of the Snowdonia National Park. This peaceful location has walking from the door, through the owners' land, to a pebble beach with views across the Menai Straits to Anglesey and down to Caernarfon. Here you can find all the facilities of a small town such as supermarkets, cafes and pubs, plus some lovely shops selling local products, great restaurants, the Welsh Highland Railway and of course the world famous castle. In the other direction is the Blue Flag award beach and small airport with pleasure flights and a museum at Dinas Dinlle, 5 miles, and the delightful park, craft centre and cafe at Glynllifon. The award winning Fron Goch Garden Centre and Cafe are situated just one mile away and Zip World Velocity at Bethesda is a half hour drive.

 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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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).
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
