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 mile) 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 (6 miles) 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 mile. The garden immediately surrounding the property is fenced, however unrestricted access to the river means the main garden is not suitable for unsupervised children.

Guest Feedback:

S, A & Family (July 2020): "This spacious property is a great place to stay with family. Ideally situated on the edge of Caernarfon, just an easy 20 minute walk along the river to get into the centre. The property very clean and the kitchen well stocked with plenty of utensils for cooking family meals.
Plenty of outside areas to just sit in or play games. Extremely fast flowing river just a few yards away at the back (fenced but accessible) was nice to watch & occasionally saw canoeists 'braving the rapids'.
The impact of covid 19 meant we needed to take all our own bedding; towels etc and some of the facilities were not available to use (games room and bikes) which was a bit of a shame, but under the circumstances taking own bedding is a small price to pay to keep well and stay safe.

The owners were on the end of the phone if needed; were very helpful and wanted to make sure our holiday was as good as it could be under the circumstances.
Thank you for a lovely holiday!"

S, D & Family (August, 2019):"After a few years away, it's been an utter joy to return. Waking up to nature watch right on our doorstep and then dipping our feet in the river after a mountain hike really sets this place apart. Thank you Mick and Anne and I'm sure we will return soon!"

It's our second visit and we will be back. Thank you to Anne and Mick for the use of your beautiful holiday home x"
S J & M (May, 2018): "Wow a wonderful week in North Wales...
Of all the views of nature
This is one at it's peak.
The river gurgled in the mornings
Heron and dipper in our view
The jays, the robins and lots of tits
Then a nuthatch joined us too.
Alas, no sight of an otter
Though saw woodpeckers every day
Having a feast upon the nuts
What a way to holiday in May..........
We have visited the mountains, and an island one or two,
But we absolutely loved returning, and coming back to see this view.
It has revived our spirits, we've loved breathing soft clean air..........
This quaint and quirky bolt hole, that privides a perfect view,
We have simply loved it, and hope that you will too."
