Description

Bryn Gwynedd Annexe is in the small village of Waunfawr, at the edge of the Snowdonia National Park, just a scenic 6 miles from the start of the footpaths or train up Snowdon. This good value accommodation makes an ideal spot from which to explore the area. There is a popular pub with microbrewery, which also serves food, about half a mile walk away. Caernarfon is only 3 miles away, with its stunning castle and Welsh Highland Railway. The nearest beach at Dinas Dinlle is 7 miles away and Anglesey just 10 miles.

‘watch the trains of the Welsh Highland Railway go by from the beer garden of Snowdonia Parc real ale pub and microbrewery. This award-winning pub is right by the river and serves food as well’ from Jacky, our local property manager.

The Cottage: is spacious for two people and mostly on one level apart from a small step at the entrance. Heating by wall mounted electric heaters.

Living Room/Kitchen: this open plan room has comfortable seating, Freeview TV and DVD; WiFi; small table and chairs for two.

Kitchen Area: is equipped with an electric oven and electric hob with extractor over, fridge with ice box and microwave.

There is one ground floor bedroom accessed through a spacious corridor where any excess luggage could be stored.

Bedroom: has a king size bed and plenty of storage.

Shower Room: is a newly refurbished shower room with shower cubicle, WC and basin.

Outside: there is a grassed area with table and chairs and views of surrounding mountains. Plenty of private parking.

The village of Llanrug, 4 miles away, has another local pub serving good food, an award-winning butcher and little bakery hidden away near Bryn Bras Castle; also a good Co-Op store for provisions. There is plenty of walking from the door up the outlying hills of Snowdonia, and a stop on the Welsh Highland Railway within walking distance, half a mile. There is good road and mountain biking locally and the annexe is on one of the popular circular routes around Snowdon. The nearby Chwellyn valley has a wonderfully scenic lake, superb for taking photographs, and this leads to the popular village of Beddgelert, passing two of the starting points for footpaths up Snowdon. Many of Snowdonia’s most popular tourist attractions are within a short distance, making Bryn Gwynedd Annexe a good location for a fantastic holiday.

Location

  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.
