The space

The space consists of 2 furnished double bedrooms with another double and 2 single bed in the upstairs area which is very light having 2 Velux windows with blinds.
One bedroom has a sliding door opening out onto the decking area. The other looks over the garden. There is one bathroom with a shower cabinet (I've recently had to replace the bathroom so there is no longer a bath. I have yet to update the photograph) and one outside pedestal toilet. There is a comfortable sitting room with a wood burning stove, TV and DVD player. Tea, coffee, milk and sugar are supplied. There is a fridge and microwave, crockery and glasses for your own use. Ironing board, iron and hairdryer on hand. I can offer an evening meal if required. Guests have appreciated not having to book a restaurant on the first evening of their stay.

Guest access

House and garden with easy chairs for sitting out on the deck, lounging and sundowners. Fortunately the sun is in the garden from early morning to about 9pm in the summer. There is ample kitchen space with table to seat up to 8 people.

Interaction with guests

I will be here to welcome you and show you around. I live in a self contained garden chalet but I have access to the utility room via the back door. I have guide books describing circular walks in Snowdonia, Anglesey and The Llŷn and I am always delighted to help with your plans.

The neighbourhood

The small village of Caeathro is one mile from historic Caernarfon with its famous Norman castle, harbours, arts centre and good eateries.
From Caernarfon take the Welsh Highland Railway through truly spectacular scenery to Porthmadog and Blaenau Ffestiniog.
Caeathro is ideally located for walking and climbing in Snowdonia, swimming and surfing from the Llŷn and Anglesey beaches, sailing on the Menai Straits (see Plas Menai water sports centre) and visiting exciting destinations such as Zip World and Bounce Below and the hydro electric cavern of Electric Mountain in Llanberis. Add to this Snowdonia Surf ,Dolgarrog in the Conwy valley.

Getting around

Safe storage for bicycles
Direct access to A4085 (Caernarfon - Llanberis)
Close to bus stop
Twice hourly buses to Caernarfon; hourly buses to Llanberis and Pen y Pass (for Snowdon)

Other things to note

The buses to Caernarfon - change for Bangor, Porthmadog and Pwllheli; Llanberis for Pen y Pass and Snowdon and Beddgelert for the gorgeous Aberglaslyn pass and Osprey watching

Lovely and very cosy cottage , 25 mins drive to the miners path if your looking to climb mount snowdon. If your looking to just relax and eat a very well equipped kitchen to cook up a storm.

Croeso i Arfon.
I do love to walk with Dot, my Border Collie, in the hills and on the coastal pathways.
I have travelled in India, Africa and the Middle East. I prefer eating in people eateries which is where you get the real food of the country, I think. I love reading and can help out if guests have forgotten to bring a book with them! I would love the opportunity to cook for guests. I was self employed for 23 years providing location catering for our Welsh TV channel. Vegetarian, vegan, gluten free - no problem. I love to listen to what other people have to say about life and the places they have visited. My hope is that guests will feel relaxed in a fairly informal house and also try my cooking!
I'd like to point out that, just a few miles up the road (A4085) are several alternative routes to the summit of Snowdon - the Mountain Ranger path and the Rhyd Ddu path. Both are far less busy than the Pen y Pass paths and are also hugely enjoyable as confirmed by my guests who have chosen to walk them.
