- english, french
About Juliette Morgan
I married my husband Gareth, a restorer of antiques and vintage cars, 46 years ago, and we have owned "Gwyndy" for most of that time. I worked in the antiques business specialising in antique ceramics and have just completed my third novel, yet to be published. I enjoy walking and cookery.
Juliette Morgan purchased this Cottage in 1970
Why Juliette Morgan chose Caernarfon
We both fell in love with "Gwyndy" when first we saw it in 1970, despite it's then overgrown and derelict state. It is in a quiet and secluded spot in the countryside, yet despite the peaceful location it's not remote, the Brittania bridge on to the Isle of Anglesey where there are superb beaches, is only 4 miles away, and Llanberis, the village at the foot of Mount Snowdon, about 5 miles. "Gwyndy" is situated only 4 miles from the North Wales Expressway which connects with the motorway network, so we can drive to Chester, Liverpool or Manchester in a surprisingly short time.
What makes this Cottage unique
Everybody who stays here remarks on the peaceful feel of Gwyndy, which makes it a perfect base for a relaxing holiday. The old stone buildings standing in lawned gardens with woodlands beyond add to this sense of calm, and you won't believe how many of our guests have asked if they could buy the place ! We like to walk through the countryside to the friendly pub on the crossroads about two-thirds of a mile away. If you book a table on the gallery there you can have a grandstand view of Snowdonia whilst enjoying good food . Both of the Gwyndy cottages have open fires for which we supply unlimited quantities of logs from our own woodland, plus instructions on how to light them for the UN-initiated !
