Abel’s House Bed and Breakfast at Caernarfon is a Victorian house decorated in period style, situated in a quiet street within the ancient walls of the town. Caernarfon Castle , a World Heritage Site begun in 1273, is at the end of the street. At Abel’s House you’ll find a comfortable house for your stay in one of the major towns of North Wales, and you’ll enjoy generous hospitality and excellent breakfasts provided by chef Gert Vos.
Caernarfon is the ideal place to use as a base for exploring the wonders of North Wales. Visit the castle and other historic buildings nearby, including National Trust Penrhyn Castle and Conwy Castle , and Plas Newydd and Beaumaris Castle on nearby Anglesey. From Caernarfon you can take a boat cruise on the Menai Straits, take the historic steam train through the mountains, visit the villages in Snowdonia National Park, and, if you’re up to it, climb a mountain or two, including Snowdon, the highest peak in England and Wales. If you’re not up to the climb, you can take the mountain railway to the top instead.
The Isle of Anglesey with its ancient standing stones, beautiful beaches and little coves with old fishing villages is just across the water, easily accessible by two bridges. Wales has a magnificent coast walk which follows the entire coast around the country, including around Anglesey.
If outdoor adventure is not what you’re seeking and all you need is a quiet break, we have a comfortable sitting room where you can read quietly, play chess or scrabble, do a jigsaw puzzle, or just watch TV.
Let us know what you’re interested in doing while you’re here, and we’ll be able to guide you to the right places. For example, if you’re here on a Tuesday night, you can attend a rehearsal of the renowned Caernarfon Welsh Male Choir. We have maps of the many walking and cycling trails in the area, as well as information about local art galleries and events.
Abel’s House is also an excellent place for groups of family or friends to celebrate reunions or special events.
