Check availability & book
Occupying a unique position, just yards from the beach, and enjoying magnificent views across to the isle of Anglesey and Puffin Island, this is a substantial detached property on a grand scale of over 5000 square feet.
Built in a Gothic chateau style in 1872, it is steeped in history and was built as the grand harbour masters mansion for a harbour that was never in fact completed! It boasts flexible and spacious accommodation, perfect for large gatherings of friends and family. The living room is stunningly presented with a unique and beautiful hand painted domed ceiling and a beautiful open fireplace which completes the cosy and period ambiance.
The dining room has seating for 20 guests, and there is also a separate drawing room and library along with 10 spacious bedrooms. The lawned garden to the property has an attractive ornamental pond with a Japanese three-tier fountain surrounded by a 9-hole putting green and croquet lawn. The driveway extends to the rear of the property where there is a further garden area and small orchard and parking for up to 10 cars.
The walled town of Conwy lies close by between Llandudno and Bangor, and with the West Coast train line passing through both towns. Conwy is home to an elegant 13th-century castle, built by Edward I, as well as other buildings of note - such as the National Trust owned 14th-century timber and stone Aberconwy House, the splendid Plas Mawr and what is reputed to be the smallest house in Britain.
As well as being the major shopping town for the area, Llandudno is also home to Venue Cymru Theatre, which has a range of touring productions. The town also has two beaches and the famous views from the top of the Great Orme, 679ft, jutting out into the Irish Sea, which can be explored by tramway, cable car or on foot.
In the other direction is Ynys Môn, the Isle of Anglesey, with its 125 miles of coastline, with fantastic beaches and rocky coves. For walkers, there are plenty of routes to explore - including The Cambrian Way which begins in Conwy, and winds its 274 miles to Cardiff, passing through some of Wales’ most wonderful upland scenery, and taking in the Carneddau, the Glyders, the Snowdon Massif, Cadair Idris and the Brecon Beacons.
Bodnant Garden is a further attraction in the area for visitors, providing displays of rhododendrons and laburnum in May/June and other colour throughout the year. Within easy reach is both the Zip World Velocity and Surf Snowdonia, two of the area’s newest visitor attractions - Zip World being the longest and fastest zip line in the northern hemisphere and Surf Snowdonia the first inland man made surfing lagoon.
