Penrallt Cottage description

Holiday home
In a fantastic hillside location on the outskirts of the marina village of Y Felinheli, this detached stone property is just five minutes from the historic town of Caernarfon. The interior has been decorated to a very high standard and furnished with stylish modern pieces which compliment the property's period features. Outside, there is also a lovely patio area which offers an excellent place to enjoy some al fresco dining with a backdrop of stunning views, or to simply sit and read a book in the sun.

Formerly known as Port Dinorwic, Y Felinheli is situated on the beautiful Menai Straits between the historic town of Caernarfon and the cathedral city of Bangor. This lovely harbour town is home to a small, established yachting marina with an interesting lock, which allows boats to enter or leave before cruising down the Straits to the open sea. There is also a wide selection of amenities in the village as well as pubs, restaurants, shops and a hotel, whilst just two miles away is an award-winning five-star restaurant for something a little more special. The landscape of this pretty region is incredibly diverse and offers the stunning mountain of Snowdonia, the beautiful Lleyn Peninsula, and the sandy beaches of the Isle of Anglesey – all of which are within easy driving distance.

Famous for its choirs, stunning mountain ranges and beautiful valleys, this wonderful country has something for everyone. From Snowdonia in North Wales to the Brecon Beacons and the Pembrokeshire Coast in the South.

The cottage is very thoughtfully laid out and it is easy to live in. The location (close to castles and not far from a super beach and Waitrose supermarket ) suited our needs. The view from the cottage is beautiful. The owners are helpful and accessible - not that we had any problems.

Mr Brown

We fell in love with the cottage from the moment we arrived. The views across the Menai Strait were fantastic, and the cottage was ideally placed as a base to explore North Wales and Anglesey. The cottage had everything we needed for our week's break, and we will definitely be returning!
Mr Sant
September 2013
It is a wonderful view from a wonderful cottage. This has been the highlight of our stay so far in the UK. We love the look of the old exterior, but the interior is modern clean and very comfortable. The location up on a hill is great, and makes it feel as though we are miles from town, yet the drive to shopping and dining is short. The location is also convenient to Caernarfon and Conwy, and we even made a quick run to Holyhead. I would suggest that those travelling to the UK spend less time in London and more time here in North Wales, we wish we had!
Mr Bown
October 2012
The owner was there to greet us and was around if we had any issues, we had none, and to give local information. We would highly recommend.

It was a lovely cottage in an excellent location with outstanding views. The location of the cottage meant that the many attractions of North Wales were all within a short driving distance.

My father and I booked a weeks holiday at Penrallt Cottage and we fell in love with the cottage as soon as we arrived. The weather was fine and the views across the Menai Strait were fantastic. The cottage had everything that we needed for a relaxing week's holiday. We met Osian the owner who was very polite and friendly and gave us useful advice on nearby attractions, eateries etc. Penrallt is situated ideally for a base to explore and enjoy North Wales and Anglesey. The weather did turn colder/wetter towards the end of the week, then it was the end of September/beginning of October and it never stopped us getting out and about. Only disappointment was getting on the steam train for the top of Snowdon in sunny weather, but by the time we reached the summit it was a complete white-out! We will just have to come back again! All in all a brilliant week in a lovely cottage in a beautiful country!
March 2011
The owners are welcoming, friendly and helpful. The cottage is spacious, very clean with all the facilities to make your stay relaxing. The views are absolutely stunning and we had great weather too which was an added bonus. There is lots to do in the area (even in March). We were sorry to leave.
October 2012
Premises was fine for us,clean & tidy,but lacking that "special" feel perhaps Great views over the Menai and some lovely sunsets,ideally situated for exploring Northern Snowdonia,close to Anglesey,Llanberis,Beddgelert and Bangor
Menai view
December 2009
A perfect place to stay: - the cottage is very good and high-class equipped - it is very comfortable for 6 persons - the people who let the house are living beside. They are very friendly and cooperative if there is a question - the area around the cottage and the views are very lovely (the sunsets are sensational) - it is a good place to start activities as e.g. to Snowdon, Canaerfon, Bangor, Anglesey, Conwy, the Ffestiniog Railway - also the weather was ok - most of the time dry and sometimes a bit of sunshine. We had a nice week.
Mr & Mrs B
December 2009
The cottage was well-equipped, nicely-furnished and very comfortable. The lovely views over the Menai Straits were gorgeous and we had excellent weather to appreciate them fully. We enjoyed our holiday very much. Only 3 less-positive comments: The '5 mins downhill walk' was over-optimistic re. timing and it is pretty steep. (We are fit and regularly walk in the countryside but after doing the walk on the first evening we didn't repeat it.) Access by car involves negotiating a very sharp left turn. We coped but wouldn't recommend it for a nervous driver. The 'written directions' mention a 'sharp left turn' but I would add the word 'very' to emphasise that. We were disappointed at the 'selection of pubs,restaurants...' as there was only one pub within a short walking distance of the cottage and the meal we had there was very poor. Your description of Y Felinheli suggested a more thriving community with a good selection of eating places. We would have liked to have eaten out in the village more often.
December 2009
High quality, modern decor,very warm accommodation. Great views, very peaceful. Good location for visiting Angelsey and North Wales. Sharp narrow turning with bend, but not a problem. Owners next door and very helpful. Short circular walk can be done fron house.
