Stylish Apartment Overlooking Castell Caernarfon | Moel-Tryfan

Pet FriendlyNear BeachNear Pub

Part of Caernarfon’s buzzing new artisan quarter, Cei Llechi, this stylish apartment overlooking Castell Caernarfon is perfect for two guests. It will appeal to culture seekers as well as adventurers keen to explore more of North Wales, and is perfect for a romantic getaway in North Wales.

Named after the Moel Tryfan quarry to the south of Rhosgadfan, here is a beautiful one-bedroomed apartment. Slate Quay, which is just a stone's throw from the mighty Caernarfon Castle. The apartment comes with fantastic close-up views of the medieval fortress, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

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 really beautifully designed.

Inside this stylish apartment overlooking Castell 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 kitchen at one end, and a comfortable sitting area and dining table at the other. The views to the castle from the dining table are really fabulous, something to savour with your meals.

This is a first-floor apartment, and the bathroom and bedroom sit under the eaves, so it should be noted that some of the ceilings are rather low. Overall, though, the space is wonderfully bright and airy – it is very well designed.

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.

Floor Plans




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 returned from a 3 night stay and we enjoyed it so much, we’ve just booked to go back between Christmas and New Year! Our dog loved it too and it was such a high standard of property and was warm and comfortable. Central to everything and parking was £4 for 24 hours. Great internet speed and a well fitted kitchen – can’t wait to come back.


Yet another fantastic ‘vacay’ with Dioni! It was an absolute privilege to stay in such a stunning listed property – finished to very high spec. Owner has taken great care to think of everything you could possibly need. Perfect location for exploring Caernarfon & surrounding areas including Anglesey. I would not hesitate to recommend to family & friends.


The Apartment was wonderful, from the brand new feel to the high quality fixtures and fittings throughout.

The location of the property is possibly the best in the town and is directly opposite the castle, providing great views. Parking was literally outside and was also really cheap at £5 for a 24hr period.

We will be back in the spring, overall a wonderful place to stay and a great base to explore a wonderful town.

Charlotte Hewitt

Absolutely loved the accommodation. Couldn’t fault it. So clean and tidy. Roomy and such a lovely place to stay. Great location overlooking the castle. Will definitely use Dioni again.

Jaime Sutcliffe

Beautiful apartment with great views. Parking outside is £5 for 24 hours. Never had an issue getting a spot. Please be aware that there is a club behind these harbour master apartments. It is very noisy especially at closing time. Disturbed both nights at 3am, even with earplugs !

Chatfield family

The apartment was very clean and modern, an excellent location right opposite the castle. Parking was easy even on a busy sunny day right near to the apartment, coffee/ice cream shop a few steps away, crabbing/boat trip from the quay side a few steps away, some excellent restaurants/pubs a few mins walk, a park and nature reserve a short walk away which connects to the coastal path. We had a wonderful time thank you.

Phillip Larbey

We were absolutely delighted with the accommodation when we arrived – clean, cosy and well appointed. The views of Caernarfon Castle exceeded our expectations. On site maintenance staff were polite and friendly, and we’re only too happy to to help with any issues, but we had none. Location was terrific for Caernarfon, but also for getting out and about in North Wales. We had a delightful stay. Suggestions: Some microwave dishes and a few cooking bowls would help for those that like to cook and eat in.

Sam Blood

Absolutely immaculate apartment in a central location. We were really impressed with how clean it was and we would not hesitate to rebook. The whole place looked brand new and had been completed to a high standard of finish. It was an ideal base for us to explore North Wales. Our toddler also came along and the owner had provided a high chair and travel cot, which was really thoughtful.

Tim Sheard

Absolutely wonderful apartment, excellent position, lots of history, we couldn’t ask for more as a comfortable, relaxing base for our mini-break.

Well furnished and equipped, we felt at home straight away, faultlessly clean, fresh sheets and towels, looked and smelt like new! I would definitely book with Dioni again, this is a wonderful addition.
