Caernarfon Chalet Rental Photos and Description
Self contained 2 bedroomed fully equipped & heated chalet
This is a self contained 2 bedroomed chalet on the Glan Gwna country estate, to the front of the property is a lawn which goes down to a flowing river fed by a lake and waterfall to the right of the property. It is very peaceful and very private. There is garden furniture supplied so you can sit out by the river on those warm balmy evenings. There is a heron who visits regularly. The master bedroom has a double bed, bedroom 2, to the rear of the property, has bunk beds, a single bed on top and a double bed below. There is a lounge, bathroom, shower and bath and kitchen with all you could possibly need, and of course the grassed area between the river and the front of the property. It is a nice place to stay because it is very rural although you are not very far from any of the busy tourist attractions North Wales has to offer. A lovely place to return to in the evenings and just to put your feet up by the river and relax with a glass of wine. NO PETS

About Jackie or Nick Davies
We are an English family that has moved to the mountains of North Wales in search of rural life. We keep chickens, a dog, cats and have two teenage children. We lead a very simple life about 900 feet above sea level overlooking the menai straits , about 8 miles from the chalet.We used to live in Buckinghamshire and worked in London but craved the quiet removal from the hussle and bussle of London life. We bought the chalet to provide the very same escape to people who cannot or may not want to do it permanently, but everyone deserve at least one weeks break. 'A change is as good as a rest.'Come and recharge your batteries here in Wales.
Jackie or Nick Davies purchased this chalet in 2009
Why Jackie or Nick Davies chose Caernarfon
This property is in a fantastic location, in the centre of North Wales with tons to do for all ages, the waterfall is fabulous perhaps more so in the winter and the peace and quiet on the country park estate is wonderful. It is also heated which is an added bonus which enables it to be used all year round.
What makes this chalet unique
Its warm, cosy has a front garden with benefits of the beautiful waterfall view. everything is nearby but far enough away to keep the chalet tranquil. It has recently been refurbished to a high standard and we try very hard to keep it this way, all its profits are reinvested into keeping the chalet to a high quality.
