21B Segontium Terrace is a fantastic pet-friendly apartment in historic Caernarfon, close to Snowdonia National Park and some of North Wales' favourite sights and attractions. It is on the lower ground floor of a Grade II listed townhouse, close to the water and within walking distance of Caernarfon Castle, shops, pubs and cafes. The size and layout are ideal for couples or solo travellers, with the owner providing plenty of personal touches that make the apartment warm and welcoming all year round.
Photos don't do Caernarfon Castle justice. The magnificent fortress dominates the town as much now as in the 13th Century. Centuries before Edward built his Iron Ring of castles (Caernarfon, Conwy, Beaumaris and Harlech) the Romans made their mark with Segontium - the most important Roman fort in North Wales. The Roman ruins on the hill above the town are a lovely destination for a walk and a picnic, with the elevated position affording panoramic views over Menai Strait. Wander along the redeveloped waterfront which boasts an arts centre, cinema, shops and places to eat, or visit specialist museums like the Royal Welch Fusiliers Museum or the Airworld Aviation Museum.
Visitors can take get their thrills at Zip World, take the Welsh Highland Railway along the coast and through beautiful countryside to Porthmadog, sunbathe and build sandcastles on the beach at Dinas Dinelle, go horseriding, play golf, or hire a bike and explore the network of cycle paths.
Day trips can include wandering around the decorative building of Portmeirion, taking the Snowdon Mountain Railway from Llanberis to the peak of Wales' highest mountain, and take a boat trip through the Menai Straits to Anglesey and Puffin Island. It doesn't matter what time of the year you visit because there is so much to see and do.
