We had a fantastic stay, the chalet was lovely, cosy & comfortable & had everything we needed on arrival. Great communication with the owner before hand, nothing was too much trouble, great directions. Nothing to fault, would highly recommend.

Really pleased that you enjoyed your stay and hope you will return soon! The kitchen is 'compact' as you say and the only way we could re-model it would be to expand into the bathroom and take that upstairs - but that would lose a...More

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.

There is a bus route which runs past Glan Gwna holiday park.

The nearest mainline station is at Bangor.
