    “We have visited Capel Ogwen many times.”

    It is a magical place and any issues with the house are totally negated by its position, views and character. We were disappointed that the people who prepared the place left so many issues rather than sorting. Firstly in the main bedroom( right at top of the stairs)half of each curtain (one set) had no curtain hooks and as such the curtains wouldn’t close (but the flowing unattached curtains were displayed beautifully). The bath panel was pulled away. The crockery and cutlery were dirty and ...

    It is a magical place and any issues with the house are totally negated by its position, views and character. We were disappointed that the people who prepared the place left so many issues rather than sorting. Firstly in the main bedroom( right at top of the stairs)half of each curtain (one set) had no curtain hooks and as such the curtains wouldn’t close (but the flowing unattached curtains were displayed beautifully). The bath panel was pulled away. The crockery and cutlery were dirty and had to be washed before they were fit to use and evidence of previous guests was evident- paper confetti and glitter remaining in dining room. My towel had a large hole in it and the skirting boards in our bedroom ( main left) were filthy. None of these things spoiled the visit for us but it did give the impression that the property was not really cared for. We still love it though!!

    Further to your feedback, we have arranged a visit to the house to follow up on these issues. We are so pleased that despite any problems you had a wonderful stay! Owner relations

The property

Sitting on an unspoilt and sparsely populated stretch of coastline near Bangor on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park, Capel Ogwen is approached through a vast lodged gateway and down a mile of private drive.

A former head gamekeeper's home, this is a holiday house of space and character, extended so that large groups can enjoy themselves together or be as independent as they wish. Capel Ogwen is sheltered on the coastal side by a ten-foot wall.

Southwards there are stunning views across the fields to the Carneddau mountains, whilst to the north is the panorama of the Lavan Sands and Anglesey. "With Menai Holiday Cottages since day one, Capel Ogwen is still loved by all that holiday here year after year." A door in the garden wall opens onto the fabulous Ogwen estuary, where the tide comes gently into the ribbon of shingle and grass.

The Traeth Lavan Nature Reserve covers approximately 6,000 acres of sands and mudflats; this is a Site of Special Scientific Interest, and in midwinter, the sands attract masses of waders and wildfowl. Ideal for house parties and family reunions, Capel Ogwen is available for short breaks and long weekends out of high season.

About the location

BANGOR

Menai Bridge 2.5 miles; Beaumaris 7 miles; Caernarfon 10 miles; Llanberis 11 miles.

Bangor is a university town on the North Wales coast with a large range of shops, bars and restaurants. It is the main crossing point for the Isle of Anglesey with two road bridges across the Menai Strait. Across the water, the castle and pier at Beaumaris make a lovely day out, or you can catch a boat to enjoy a trip out to Puffin Island. The Anglesey Coastal Path takes in beautiful scenery, and the island is home to many fine beaches including Rhosneigr, Trearddur Bay and Red Wharf Bay. The NT mansion Plas Newydd is on the island, while on the mainland further NT properties can be found including Penrhyn Castle and Bodnant Gardens. The spectacular mountains and lakes of Snowdonia are just a short drive way, with plenty of castles, beaches and other attractions on offer in this wonderful region. Bangor and the Menai Straits really do offer the best of both worlds!

Note: Excellent sea trout and salmon fishing on the River Ogwen can be arranged with the Penrhyn Estate Office.
