The SpaceA comfortable detached house with kitchen, living room, sitting/dining room, conservatory, three bedrooms (1x king size, 1x double and 2x single beds) and one toilet/bathroom with a large bath and electric shower.
The house is homely and welcoming, it sleeps six within the three bedrooms. A sofa bed in the sitting room can accommodate a further two 'temporary' guests.
The conservatory is ideal for either dining or relaxing in, taking in the garden, countryside and sea views.
The house is double glazed, with oil central heating and features dressed stonework, exposed beams, an inglenook fireplace, two multi-fuel stoves, private gardens and ample off road parking.
The outside patio area is ideal for eating 'al fresco' and to unwind, take in the views and fresh air.
Guests are welcome to stroll around the gardens. There is a small pond in the garden and so children will need to be supervised.
Please note that Hafod Boeth is down a narrow country lane and so extra wide vehicles may find it difficult to approach. Guest AccessDoor keys will be left for you and guests will have full use of the house and gardens. Interaction with GuestsWhilst I will not be present during your stay, the house will be ready for your arrival, giving you the privacy you require. However, you can contact me, should you have any queries during your stay.

The blue flag beach and dunes at Dinas Dinlle lie within a 20 minute drive and can be seen from the front of the property, whilst open countryside is to the rear, with walks into the hillside that culminate in the impressive mountain scenery of the Snowdonia National Park.
The property is the ideal home for beach lovers, walkers, cyclists, history buffs, naturalists, steam train enthusiasts, sport lovers, thrill seeking 'adrenalin junkies' or for those who just prefer to be a 'home bird' and do nothing.

For the more active, leisure centres are nearby in Caernarfon, Bangor, Pwllheli and Porthmadog.

Whilst there is no nearby mainline railway station, the nearest being Bangor, Criccieth & Porthmadog, there is the world famous 'Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland' railway. This runs from Caernarfon (via the nearby station at Dinas) up to Beddgelert, taking in breathtaking scenery, before dropping down to Porthmadog and then travelling beyond to end at Bleanau Ffestiniog. Other Things to NoteHafod Boeth is offered on a self-catering basis and bedding/towels are provided.
The property is down a very narrow country lane and it would be prudent not to arrive in the dark due to the absence of street lighting.
Wifi is available in the property and up to 9 devices can connect to this, but it is via 'mobile broadband' and so the signal strength does vary from 4G to nothing, depending on time of year/weather etc. Whilst the wifi will cope with email and web browsing, it is not designed for downloading movies or other large files, especially as there is a monthly limit on download data availability.
