Damavand Countryside Cottage description

Holiday home
Situated just over 5 miles from Caernarfon is Damavand, an all ground floor apartment. This welcoming apartment has light and airy rooms with an open plan living area, fitted kitchen, dining area and sitting area. The apartment sleeps four people and has one double bedroom, with a sofa bed and multi-fuel burner in the sitting area. There is off road parking for one car and stunning mountain and sea views can be seen from the side lawned garden. Caernarfon has many attractions and amenities to suit all tastes and Damavand is ideal for families or group of friends that want to explore this area of Wales.

The tourist town of Caernarfon is steeped in history due to the stunning 13th Century castle, town walls and water front. During the tourist season, the guided tours of the castle and the special events, such as historic pageants are well worth visiting. Continuing the history theme, within walking distance of Caernarfon is the excellent Segontium - a Roman fort and museum. Another essential attraction is the Welsh Highland Railway, which passes through beautiful scenery. Caernarfon also offers many amenities, such as shops, pubs and restaurants.

The cottage was very warm and pleasant to spend time in. The area has much to offer to the tourist; National Trust properties, walks and small towns to visit.

Damavand was a great place for a break! The apartment was very modern with everything we needed. It was far enough into the countryside to be away from everything and peaceful yet only ten minutes or so drive to the shops if needed. We had a great time!

Fantastic furnishings, very up to date inside the property. Fantastic views of the surrounding rural countryside and our children were very happy to be guided in by a sheep whom they named Dino the Tour Guide! Only 4 miles from Caernarfon, small local shop within walking distance. Fantastic holiday and will look forward to coming to Damavand again!

The accommodation was really comfortable and homely. It is located about a 10-15 minute drive outside Caernarfon with views of the sea. The directions provided were spot -on and we did not have any trouble finding the accommodation, even in the dark. The living accommodation was spotless and well equipped. Would recommend and stay again.

A lovely little place in a very remote spot but within easy reach of the shops and facilities. The kitchen and dining area were fantastic and very clean. Waking up to the sound of sheep bleating and birds singing in the fields around the cottage was something I found very appealing.
Mrs Walters

The cottage was lovely.
Miss Maher

A beautiful property and area. Property was well presented, clean and tidy. Very comfortable bed. Kitchen was above expectations with everything needed and brilliant cooking facilities. Overall a great holiday and I would return!
Mrs Roe
July 2012
The setting was beautiful and you could see mountains and the sea from the property. We loved being by the sheep and watching them be sheared, and we waved to and saw the farmers often. Great access onto roads and to supermarkets. The facilities were generally very good and there was plenty of space in Damavand. We had a very peaceful sleep in a comfortable bed, and the dishwasher was a bonus luxury considering the great price for a week during the summer. Excellent overall value, a great base for a holiday.

Nice break in the middle of nowhere. Exactly what we were looking for, a cottage with modern furnishing. Good walk up Snowdon.
Mrs Hill
October 2011
A beautiful, clean, contemporary, apartment in a stunning location with sea and mountain views. A great place to unwind. We thoroughly enjoyed our break, so much so that we are thinking of returning and have recommended to friends and family.
Mrs Sharrock

On arrival at the property, we were greeted by the owners father, who was on hand to ensure that we could gain access to the property and answer any questions that we had. On entering the property we were pleasantly surprised with the standard of the accommodation and the interior and fittings. The property was also very child friendly and we would definitely consider stopping here again and recommending to friends.

Damavand was bigger than expected and in a really peaceful situation. There were some spectacular sunsets to watch over the sea. You could not hear a sound at night and it was the best sleep I have had in years! It's very close to Anglesey which was the area we most wanted to explore.
Mr Rowe

The decor of the property, the location and the price. The fixtures and fittings were really good.

Great location for hill walking and peace and quiet, and just a 10 minute drive from a main town and shops.
Mrs Morris

It was an amazing location and property. It exceeded all expectations. It was in a very remote area with amazing views of mountains and the coast, yet it was a short journey into civilisation and other amazing places to visit.
Mr Armstrong

Very quiet and secluded location with brilliant views, yet close to amenities and attractions.
Mrs Whittle

Me and my partner and our 2children went for a four day stay in this lovely little cottage and we had a great time there! The cottage is about 20 mins drive from the Snowdonia Mountain and we couldn't have asked for a better place then this! It had everything we needed from kitchen utensils, the lovely bedroom and the living area, it was lovely and cosy! I would highly recommend this place to anyone for a lovely little get a away! Not to forget my kids loved the lovely view from the bedroom which was so many Sheep's! I would definitely be going back again!

Property needs updating and smartening up. Unmarked trip hazard in the form of a hump across width of main room, disguised to look like normal flooring. Not good if you are unsteady on your feet. No bedding for bed settee and the matress was damp and smelly. Grass - could not call it a lawn - was noisily strimmed while we were there, even though there was ample opportunity while we were out. No wine for us, just a cheap pack of biscuits. Still waiting for the agent, Sykes, to comment. We got the impression that this property is just a money maker and the owner does not wish to invest to keep it up to scratch. Not worth what we paid for it.

Stayed here for a week in the middle of june as a family of four with two young children (2yr old and a 7 month old) The cottage itself was comfortable enough with a good size living area and fully equiped kitchen with a dishwasher, coffee maker, microwave, range cooker. The only bedroom was a good size and we easily had enough space for our travel cot. The location was very pretty. We could see the sea and mountains in the distance and we were surrounded by lots and lots of sheep. The location is great for exploring north wales and there is a big supermarket about a 15 minute drive away. Now for the negatives. The cottage wasnt very clean. The rug on the living room floor was manky to say the least, there was dust and bits of food on the floor from the previous occupant, the toilet had a very strong smell of urine and there was a musty smell in the bedroom. The cottage was pooy maintained. There walls by the front door were filthy, the grounds around the cottage were poorly maintained and on two seperate occasions while out walking with our two young kids we found dead sheep. After telling the land owner about the sheep all he done was hid them in bushes but we could still see them and smell them. Not exactly what you want your two year old to see. The owner clearly doesnt care about this property which is a shame because with a good clean and a bit of looking after this would be a lovely cottage.

This property could not have exceeded our expectations more. It was very clean and had every detail covered, welcoming bottle of wine being the icing on the cake. We wanted a relaxing away from everything holiday and had just that. Lots of places close by yet complete serenity when at the cottage. I would recommend this to anyone and would definately go back or try their properties in the lakes as I know we would not be disappointed.
September 2012
Very comfortable stay with good facilities for example the dishwasher was a bonus considering the good value for a week in the summer months. Plenty of space insi and in a very pretty area with lovely views. Easy access back onto main roads with supermarket close by and convenient for tourist attractions. The rough track to the cottage was certainly 'rough' for low profile tyres so be aware of that.Loved being surrounded by the sheep and got to see them being sheared and friendly local farmer and local people. Tv and mobile reception fine too,amazingly for Wales.
December 2012
great cottage with lovely views , day and night with the light all around the bay. easy reach to lots of places .the cottage is well equiped fantastic big bed and the owners are very friendly and helpful. all in all a great winter bteak.

Thought had gone into the cottage for peoples needs e.g. hairdryer, coal, video, iron, hoover etc. Even a bottle of wine! Excellent - will definitely be returning and telling our friends about our little hideaway!!!
September 2017
My partner and I loved our stay at Damavand. The cottage is surrounded by fields and sheep, and the views are absolutely stunning. There is a nice big window by the dining table which adds romance to each meal time. The cottage had everything we needed, however the internet ran out after one day which was disappointing. There are supermarkets and a variety of amazing restaurants in Caernarfon which is only a 15 minute drive away. I was sad to leave and would definitely love to stay again.

The cottage has a trip hazard in the living room - a ridge about 6" high and a foot across - like a weird laminated speed bump. Disguised by the floor covering and potentially lethal. It runs across the width of the cottage between the living and kitchen area and could not be avoided. The owner must be aware as the skirting board has been stuck on to take account of it! The decor is tired and it wasn't too clean either. And the people in the cottage upstairs have to walk past your main window to get to theirs. And you can hear them moving about through the ceiling....And the garden is tiny too...I would give it 0/5 if that was possible
Mrs Lello

The peaceful location and being able to do what we wanted, when we wanted to do it. The property was of a high standard and well-serviced - we would recommend it for either a quiet holiday or as a central base for exploring the surrounding area.
