Mid terrace 19th Century Town House in Caernarfon, Gwynedd, North West Wales home swap
We live in the historic town of Caernarfon in a beautiful 18th century town house overlooking the Isle of Anglesey and the Menai Straits.
We are a family of four - two adults and two young children. We`re first language Cymraeg (Welsh) speakers and Caernarfon is a strong hold of the native language.
All our rooms are large and spacious - We have two King sized rooms and one children’s room which currently has a cot and day bed (which can be converted to a small double bed). There are two bathrooms, two living rooms, a dining room and kitchen. We also have an outside decking area with plenty of seating and a bbq.
Please note that there are some steps up to the house, just in case you have access problems.
Paddleboard available for anyone who swaps - take advantage of all the beautiful lakes & beaches around here.
