Carreg Y Garth, a magnificent, detached period house settled in Porth Waterloo near Caernarfon, Gwynedd, enjoys an elevated position with views over the rooftops to the Menai Strait.

Carreg Y Garth is a beautiful base for a family of eight or two small families' breaks in this region of Wales, with idyllic ivy covering its façade and gorgeous, rural setting.

On arrival, you'll find off-road parking on a private driveway, allowing you to quickly unpack your belongings before taking in the breath-taking views.

Inside, you'll be greeted by a reception hall before settling into the inviting sitting area, which features leather seating in front of a toasty woodburning stove and a flatscreen TV.

While you relax in the sitting room, the kids can go to the snug/games room, where they will find a variety of games to keep them occupied.

Continue to the kitchen after relaxing for a bit, where grey shaker-style cabinets house an assortment of excellent appliances, including a range cooker, ideal for any aspiring chef!

Enjoy a delicious supper in the adjacent conservatory/dining room, where natural light bathes the space during the summer evenings, adding to the space's convivial atmosphere.

Climb the stairs after dinner to find four magnificent bedrooms, including a king-size, double, and twin, as well as a double bunk that is ideal for kids.

A fantastic bathroom can be found further down the first-floor landing; with a freestanding bath and glass walk-in shower, you'll be spoilt for options when it comes to sprucing up in the mornings!

A shower room is also located downstairs for further convenience.

Make the most of the property's excellent outdoor settings, which include a big front lawn and a delightful, enclosed back garden with alfresco dining.

Check out Llanberis, a picturesque community nestled in the Snowdonia National Park with plenty to see and do, including the National Slate Museum and Dolbadarn Castle, as well as the Blue Peris Mountain Centre and the Llanberis Lake Railway.
