Overview
Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Caernarfon, Gwynedd, North Wales, Wales
Between Snowdonia and the sea, Tryfan Cottage provides an ideal base for walking or cycling holidays, whether exploring the local footpaths and tracks, or setting off into the hills. The amenities of Caernarfon are just a few miles away, yet the cottage is surprisingly secluded, with panoramic views over the surrounding countryside and Caernarfon Bay, not to mention the sunsets! The cottage was lovingly restored in the 1980s and has a cosy atmosphere, with exposed beams and stone walls. The decor and furnishing is both simple and comfortable. It is ideal for couples, a family of four or small group of adults, with one double and one twin bedded room upstairs, a good sized lounge, bathroom and kitchen downstairs, as well as a useful utility room. A cot, high chair and stairgate are available if required. Visit Wales ****

Wonderful massive stone house, very cosy, clean and well equiped. The surrounding is absolutely beautiful with some horses und free running chickens. Just 3 minutes away from the vintage train line. We (2 adults) enjoyed a week with beautiful weather, daily barbecue and stunning sundowns.

Myself and my daughter arrived to a lovely welcome of a Christmas tree with lights and a card and gift from Louise, the owner. She came to welcome us and asked if we had any questions. The cottage is very well equipped, there was even fresh milk in the fridge and tea, coffee and biscuits on the table in the...

The mile or so drive down a single track road was worth it for the great views across the Irish Sea and over to Anglesey as well. The location felt remote even though it's only about 4 miles from Caernarfon. The kids were able to play outside in total safety. The cottage itself is well presented, maintained and clean through...

About the neighbourhood
The cottage is set in the attractive grounds of a former farmhouse, now grazed by horses, and surrounded by lush pastureland. An added attraction is the steam trains of the Welsh Highland Railway which trundle by the perimeter of the property as they pass between Caernarfon and Porthmadog, and can be requested to stop at the nearby station. The area boasts a wealth of outdoor activities, such as horse riding, climbing and water sports, and there are many historic and cultural places to visit.
