The royal town of Caernarfon, approximately 8 miles north of Ashcoast House, is dominated by the magnificent Caernarfon Castle. Its sheer scale and commanding presence set it apart from the rest, and to this day, still trumpet in no uncertain terms the intention of its builder Edward-I. It was built (work began) in 1283. This was meant to be the definitive chapter in Edward-I conquest of Wales. Not only a military castle, Caernarfon was built as a seat of government and royal palace. Its majestic persona was designed to echo the walls of Constantinople, the imperial power of Rome. The Castle, with it's distinctive polygon towers, dominates the historical walled town.
