Glan Gwna is a holiday village on the edge of Snowdonia, near Caernarfon, comprising of a variety of accommodation styles in a landscaped 200 acre park. The park is tastefully laid out with a large fishing lake, woodland walks and the River Seiont meandering its way through the estate.

We had a great few days visiting family. The cottage was very homely, clean and met all our needs. Big bonus being dog and child friendly. Handy shop on site with friendly, helpful staff. Phil very quick to reply to any e-mail queries. Key arrived in good time before stay and prompt refund of deposit. Thanks Phil.

Pleasure to have you visit. Hope you can return again in the future!

Reviewed 14 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

I booked this house for its location - for walking in Snowdonia and evenings in Caernarfon without driving. The walk into Caenarfon (about 25 mins) has no pavement for a stretch so it was unsafe to walk back at night, meaning we had to get taxis (about £5). The house was comfortable, and although it felt cold in the mornings...

Management response:

Thanks for the feedback Helen. All rooms do have heaters and as you indicated it does warm up quite quickly. As the park closes over winter it has never been worth installing central heating as it would rarely be used. It is in our description that electric is not included although gas (for the cooker) is included in the price....

Fabulous little house on a really good site. Loads of places to visit close by and good facilities on site. The house itself was big enough for us (2x adults,2x kids). It was clean and tidy and well equip and a nice covered eating area at the rear. The shower could be temperamental at times but other than that I...

Management response:

Simon - pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Glan Gwna. As soon as I read the review I sent an electrician to check the shower. It seems that someone (possibly a younger guest?) had adjusted the water stop tap in the bathroom and by closing it slightly the water feed into the shower had been affected. All now fixed!...

About the neighbourhood
We are just over a mile from Caernarfon which has a reasonable choice of local shops and several large supermarkets with a small local market on Saturdays.

When crossing the swing bridge behind the castle there is an enjoyable coastal walk or if going up the steps on the far side of the bridge this takes you up to a large park with a variety of activities for all ages.

If dining out in Caernarfon a taxi into town costs about £5. Our preferred venues are BLACK BULL (pub/restaurant); OUZO & OLIVE (Greek) or FU's (Chinese). In peak season best to book in advance.
Getting around
There is a bus route which runs past Glan Gwna holiday park.

The nearest mainline station is at Bangor.

For steam train enthusiasts the nearest stations are at Caernarfon and Waunfawr for the Welsh Highland railway.

There is also a lakeside railway at Padarn Lake in Llanberris or for the more adventurous there is the Snowdon Mountain railway which also sets off from Llanberris (in main season pre-booking is essential).
