to Y Castell, which means The Castle in Welsh.

Our aim is to provide comfortable and modern self-catering accommodation, with a few touches that you would find in a hotel whilst also creating that home from home feeling. In terms of location, Cricieth castle and Tremadog Bay provide stunning and dramatic backdrops, both of which are on our doorstep.

Y Castell apartment bedroom

Excellent location with great views of sea and castle. Handy for the railway station, seafront and great local eateries. Lovely flat, well equipped, great shower.

Great location, seconds from the beach and only a few minutes from the town centre and railway station. On street parking wasn't a problem throughout the stay. Great location for visiting local attractions.


The property dates back to the Victorian era and we have three apartments available as holiday rentals. Whilst we have extensively renovated the building, we offer modern accommodation and have tried to sympathetically restore as many of the original features as possible.  Click below to learn more about our accommodation.
