Description

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 Living Room: the spacious living/dining room is comfortably furnished with sofas and armchairs, an electric fire, Freeview TV/DVD and WiFi. The dining area has a large wooden table and chairs with patio doors to the rear.

The Kitchen: is a good size and is well equipped to include a table top dishwasher, integrated oven, microwave, washing machine and large fridge/freezer. There is a good range of cooking equipment and even some great cookery books for inspiration! The kitchen leads to a rear porch for storage of boots and coats.

There are three bedrooms are all nicely styled and newly renovated, with homely touches such as pretty paintings and handcrafted items passed down through the family.

Bedroom 1: is a large double with ensuite shower room.

Bedroom 2: is a twin with garden views

Bedroom 3: is a single.

Bathroom: a family bathroom with bath (no shower in here but shower in the ensuite).

Outside: the garage houses the tumble dryer and can be used to store bikes and other equipment. The pretty well-maintained garden faces south and is a real sun trap and has a table and chairs.  There is plenty of private parking.. Views to the rear are across the churchyard and over to the hills of the Lleyn Peninsula. 

The local shop and garage are just a few hundred yards away, very convenient for fresh bread and last minute supplies, further amenities can be found in Caernarfon. This walled town has loads to do and must-see visits include; the stunning castle, Welsh Highland Railway, Segontium Roman remains and museum, harbour and castle walls, a stroll down the Foryd conservation area along the Menai Straits, and pleasure cruises from the harbour.

Location

 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.
