Fishing Lodge near CaernarfonRef: 2003
Discretely situated down a quiet lane and private drive is this impressive fishing lodge. Hidden behind the quirky castellation frontage is a spacious single storey holiday home with picture windows and patio doors overlooking the river, weir and salmon/trout pool. The capacious lounge and delightful dining room are very comfortably furnished with contemporary furniture. Though partly dating from the 18th century, the house mostly maintains a modern feel, providing a home from home for the more discerning guest. Set in the countryside just a mile outside the harbour town of Caernarfon, it stands apart from its neighbours behind tall walls, surrounded by 1/2 an acre of enclosed land with the river running along one boundary, in a peaceful and seemingly secluded setting. The views of the impressive river Seiont as it meanders through the woodland is a naturalist's delight - otters, herons and goosanders are regular visitors and binoculars are a must. From the doorstep it is possible to walk along the river to Roman Segontium, or through the recreational park opposite and via the excellent cycle path (1/4 ml) to the Welsh Highland Steam Railway station, Caernarfon castle, harbour and the town itself, with its variety of inns, restaurants and shops - all one mile away. Ideally situated for the sandy beach at Dinas Dinlle (6ml) and only 8 miles from Snowdon. Other local attractions include Gypsy Wood Park, go-karting, golf, horse riding, watersports and climbing centres. Supermarket and takeaway 1/2 ml. The garden immediately surrounding the property is fenced, however unrestricted access to the river means the main garden is not suitable for unsupervised children.
