I am really writing this about the house, Plas Arfon Cottage that we stayed in for a week that is on the property of The Gladstone Inn and will also include my review for the Inn.
Searching for a vacation home the week prior to Easter was no easy task. I did not even think about it being the week before Easter and could not figure out why I could not find a 2 bedroom house that had 2 baths that were available. Well, why would a girl from Jersey know that North Wales is THE place to go THAT WEEK? And when we arrived, I knew why! Beautiful beach with a view of the Isle of Anglesey to the front and the Snowdonia mountains in back of us! So much more than we expected and loved every second of our stay!
Lance Scally was my contact and was so fantastic! The pictures of the house were lovely but when we arrived, we could not believe how beautiful the house really was! Absolutely immaculate, you could eat off the floor in every room! Beautiful dining room when you walk in the door with a 1/2 bath in the foyer. Stunning kitchen with all contemporary appliances AND dishwasher! Three big bedrooms with the largest one upstairs that had a balcony overlooking the sea! A small but quaint backyard surrounded by an old stone wall with a field of sheep and babies! Picnic table and BBQ grill were perfect for our family get together the day after our family wedding on The Isle of Angelsey! We can't WAIT to go back!
We spent time in Caernarfon, Penygroes, Isle of Anglesey and took a day trip to Liverpool to do Beatlemania! Liverpool was only a little more than an hour away. We drove through parts of the Snowdonias twoce and and went to a beautiful beach on a pennisula in Northern Wales.
The house was booked for the last two nights of our stay so we stayed at The Gladstone Inn on the property. Fab restaurant/bar with great food, service and prices! There are 5 or 6 very tastefully done rooms. The beds were a little small for us, but comfy and immaculate, just like the house. The staff at the Inn was extremely accommodating and helped with our needs at the house and at the Inn. They even put our breakfast out for us as we had to depart early for our flight on the last day. Otherwise we were served complimentary cook to order breakfast.
I do not believe I have ever wanted to recommend any place as I want to for Plas Arfon Cottage or The Galdstone Inn! And, might I add that what we call a 'cottage' in the US is a far cry from what Plas Arfon Cottage was. It was a 3 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath house. A cottage around the lakes of North Jesey where we live is a small 1 bedroom/1 bath. Needless to say we were thrilled and hope to stay there again on our next trio to Wales!
