Part of the buzzing new artisan quarter, Cei Llechi, this town apartment on the banks of the River Seiont in Caernarfon is perfect for two guests. It will appeal to culture seekers as well as explorers and adventurers, and is perfect for a romantic getaway in North Wales.

Part of Caernarfon’s stunning new waterfront development, Cei Llechi (Slate Quay), this smart one-bedroomed apartment is just a stone’s throw from the mighty fortress of Caernarfon Castle. It comes with beautiful views across the River Seiont, which runs into the nearby Menai Strait.

Once at the heart of Caernarfon’s thriving slate trade, Cei Llechi has been recently redeveloped, and is now home to brilliant local artists, artisans, and craft makers. The apartment has been recently renovated as part of that restoration project, and – quite fittingly – everything is designed to an exceptionally high standard.

Inside this town apartment on the banks of the River Seiont in Caernarfon is one good-sized double bedroom and a lovely spacious bathroom with walk in shower. The main living space is open plan, with a smart and well-equipped kitchen area, and a comfortable seating area and dining table. The views across the river from the dining table are wonderful.

This is a split-level apartment, with the bedroom and bathroom on the ground floor, and an open plan living space, including kitchen, on the first floor.

There is plenty to explore on foot from the apartment, so this is a great place to book if you prefer to stay out of the car on your hols. With its mighty medieval castle and town walls, cobbled streets and Georgian architecture, Caernarfon is one of the gems of North Wales.

Location

 

It couldn’t be more central: you’ll find this town apartment on the banks of the River Seiont in the centre of Caernarfon. Part of the town’s buzzing new waterfront development, Cei Llechi (Slate Quay) was once at the heart of Caernarfon’sthriving slate trade.

Just a few paces from the town’s mighty medieval fortress, this heritage area has been recently redeveloped, and is now home to local artists, artisans, and craft makers. It is a thriving and creative part of town – and on a warm sunny day it has a real bohemian, Mediterranean feel to it.

Caernarfon is one of the must-see towns of North Wales. Home to the nation’s most magnificent castle, a UNESCO World Heritage site and one of the best-preserved medieval castles on the planet, it is perfect for exploring on foot, with its medieval walls, cobbled streets, and Georgian architecture.

Around 50 metres from this town apartment on the banks of the River Seiont in Caernarfon, you’ll find Y Maes (Castle Square). Ringed by great cafés, boutiques and bars, it is the real heart of the town. There are plenty of options for people watching and eating out. By following the promenade walkway around the town walls overlooking the Menai Strait you will reach Victoria Dock – another previously thriving industrial district of the town, now home to residential flats, offices and the creative industries with a state of the art theatre and cinema, Galeri overlooking the dock.

You can jump on board the Welsh Highland Railway at Caernarfon for trips to Porthmadog, Rhyd Ddu and Beddgelert. Puffing your way through some of the UK’s most dramatic landscapes on this heritage railway is a magical way to explore the landscapes of North Wales.

If you enjoy cycling or walking on your holidays, follow the traffic-free cycle track Lon Las Fenai, which is part of the Wales Coast Path. It tracks the Menai Strait (the body of water between mainland Wales and Ynys Môn / Anglesey) from Caernarfon to Y Felinheli, and you can follow it all the way to Bangor (9 miles) and then into the mountains of DyffrynOgwen, or over the Menai Bridge to Anglesey (8.5 miles).

Anglesey – or Ynys Môn – is the largest island in Wales, surrounded by stunning Blue flag beaches and beautiful coastal walks – Newborough Warren, Llanddwyn Island and Aberffraw are amongst our favourites. There are some fantastic places to explore on the island, including Plas Newydd, an enchanting 18th century mansion and gardens, with spectacular views of Snowdonia.

Head around ten miles south of this stylish apartment overlooking Castell Caernarfon to get to the Llyn Peninsula. Like Anglesey, it is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and boasts spectacular coastal scenery and beaches served up with a stunning mountain backdrop.

There are plenty of outdoor specialists in the area who offer activities like coasteering, kayaking, horse riding and gorge scrambling. Adventure seekers might like to take a high-speed boat trip down the Menai Strait with Rib Ride. The holiday apartment is about a 20-minute drive from the high-speed thrills of Zip World at Bethesda, and 45 minutes will get you a surf on a world-first inland surf lagoon at Adventure Parc Snowdonia. The enchanting village of Portmeirion, with its Italianate follies, interesting shops, famous chinaware, cafés and beautiful gardens, is around 30 minutes’ drive south.Just a few paces from the town’s mighty medieval fortress, this heritage area has been recently redeveloped, and is now home to local artists, artisans, and craft makers. It is a thriving and creative part of town – and on a warm sunny day it has a real bohemian, Mediterranean feel to it.

My son and myself had a lovely stay at the apartment overlooking the river.
Right next to the castle which we also enjoyed looking around . The apartment was clean,tidy and cosy.
One piece of advice I would give to anyone staying at the apartment in future is take an eye mask to sleep with, as the green sprinkler safety light is right above your head and then reflects in the mirror so even sleeping on your side you can still see it . Unfortunately this did hinder a good nights sleep .
However I would recommend the apartment though and would stay there again , armed with an eye mask !

An absolutely smashing little house with everything you need for a relaxing break. Quiet and peaceful with views out to the yachts moored up. Right on the castle doorstep and great walks around the city wall.

We had a lovely stay in your comfortable and cosy place. It was spotlessly clean with everything you needed.
The location was great, looking over the Quay and being right by the castle. An Ideal place for exploring the area.
We would recommend Cwm-Gwyrfai to family and friends and would certainly stay again.
