The Woollen Mill boasts a stunning and peaceful rural location. But this does mean that we don’t have supermarkets, restaurants and bars on our doorstep. However, you will find a supermarket, post office, chemist and takeaway in the village of Penygroes which is just 1.5 miles away. You will need to travel a little further to visit pubs and restaurants or a larger supermarket. Traffic is light in the area and so it doesn’t take long to get anywhere. If not being able to walk to a pub or coffee bar would ruin your holiday, The Woollen Mill isn’t the right accommodation for your stay. On the other hand, if you appreciate peace and quiet while you relax, The Woollen Mill is paradise! Here’s the amenities you might need and where to find them:
The nearest supermarket is just 1.5 miles away in the village of Penygroes. It is a relatively small Co-op but it stocks almost everything including fresh meat, fish and vegetables. There’s a decent selection of alcoholic drinks and a Costa coffee machine. The car park is small but there is another car park across the road.
If you would rather visit larger supermarkets, there is a Tesco on the main road into Caernarfon (10 minutes). Alternatively, head to Porthmadog (20 minutes) where you will find Tesco, Lidl, Aldi and Wilko.
