Fort Belan - By the Way

Self Catering in Caernarfon

"By the Way" is a charming cosy cottage within a courtyard setting at Fort Belan. This romantic 18th century fort is situated on the mouth of the Menai Strait and is one of Wales' best kept secrets. You now can have the chance to book a stay at this very special location. Ideal accommodation for two but three can be housed. Suitable for wheel-chair users This cottage is on one level and there is access to a special toilet a few yards away in the adjacent building. For disabled visitors special parking arrangements can be made close to the cottage. Tucked away in a cobble-stoned corner of the courtyard, this, the smallest cottage in the fort, is an ideal retreat. The door opens directly into a comfortable and characterful bed-sitting room with an upright piano in one corner. Though centrally heated, a flame-effect fire adds an extra touch of cosiness for winter days. A flight of open plan stairs leads to a space suitable only for a child or small person to sleep. Downstairs there are twin beds; these are next to a small bathroom which has the usual facilities and a shower over the bath. At the opposite end of the cottage a short passageway leads to an attractive dining-kitchen with a window seat beneath an arched window. Though the view is of the courtyard, the eye is led to the focal point of the North Tower at the far end of the oval lawn.
