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

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
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.
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.
Lovely chalet, lovely break,Just what my husband and myself needed.A long earned rest. Brill !
We had a short weekend here blessed with lovely weather. The park was quiet and Caernarfon as lovely as ever. The chalet is comfortable and warm.
Booked this place for the May Bank Holiday weekend and we're so glad we did. We'd never been to Caernarfon before or even heard of Glan Gwna so we didn't know what to expect but we had a fantastic time.
The chalet was great, nice and clean, plenty of room, everything we could possibly need and the location was peaceful and beautiful. It took about five minutes to walk from the chalet to The Poolside Bar and the play area, which was ideal for our four year old. The staff were brilliant on site and there's plenty to do in the surrounding areas to keep everyone entertained, the town centre was no more than a five minute drive away and is so pretty. Glan Gwna in general, is a great starting point to drive anywhere. We went to Porthmadog and Black Rock Sands beach and it only took 40 minutes. Beddgelert was 20 minutes away.
Jackie and Nick were great to deal with, payment was easy and instructions for the chalet and directions etc were emailed days before we were due to arrive.
As has already been stated, you do need a small supply of pounds coins for the electricity meter and I would also suggest taking a bath mat or an old towel for the bathroom floor, as it can get quite slippy. Also, if you're feeling a bit lazy of a morning and don't get showered until a bit later like we did, the hot water isn't that hot, as it's on a timer and comes on at 6am. It wasn't a problem though but just be aware.
Overall, I can honestly say that I'd recommend this to anyone. It is like a home away from home and my family and I hope to return very soon.
what a wonderful place to stay the chalet is on a holiday park which has a shop, cafe, heated outdoor pool (which was closed after September) child's play area, beauty saloon and laundrette, and a bar which was a surprise, and only a 4 min drive into caernarfon with its castle and a great place to go crabbing with the kids. the chalet was clean and comfortable and all electric which you will need a supply of £1. coins but i used about £1. per day.
thank-you for a relaxing week away we will definitely be back
We have had a fantastic week at lakeside.The view is fabulous and is very quiet. The chalet was very clean and has everything you could possibly need. It was lovely and cosy, a treat to come back to on a chilly evening. Jackie and Nick are really great hosts and can't do enough for you. We have done an awful lot and seen lots of wonderful places this week and would really love to come back to see and do lots more.Thank you Jackie and nick. We will certainly recommend you .
Glan Gwna is a lovely park very scenic and well maintained. Lakeside has a nice view.Glan Gwna is also very central for visiting most places in North Wales. There are some really nice restaurants in Caernarfon, Stones Bistro and Jakes Bistro being exceptional. Lakeside Chalet was fairly clean although basic and slightly dated. If staying in cold weather there was a lack of adequate heating facilities. I also found the lack of customer service in booking the chalet something I have not previously encountered when renting property.
