Tower | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
STAY IN YOUR OWN TOWER!
Some opportunities only come along once in a lifetime and this is one of them. The Tower apartment at Bryn Hedd is now available as a holiday let! This totally unique property, originally built as the belvedere tower to the Italianate villa Bryn Hedd, now offers completely self contained holiday accommodation.
The substantial accommodation comprises of private entrance lobby with original parquet flooring leading upstairs to a double bedroom, a comfortable lounge with open fire and large bathroom with bath, shower and bidet. The second floor provides a large kitchen / dining room and two further bedrooms.
Leading from the second floor is the stunning viewing tower - a fabulous room on its own with uninterrupted views in three directions, West directly over to the Menai, North over Penmaenmawr towards Conwy and East over the Carneddau mountains. It's a fabulous room to enjoy a drink whilst watching the summer sun set dramatically over Anglesey and Puffin Island or a winter storm pounding the beach with Atlantic breakers.
The Tower apartment also features brand new gas central heating and fire alarm system, secondary glazing where appropriate and a wealth of original features including working slate fireplaces and its own private parking spot with plenty of other parking available within the private grounds of Bryn Hedd.
The property is located a short walk (from 5 -15 minutes) from the village centre, beach and Snowdonia National park.
If you wish to stay local during your vacation you can enjoy the antique shops and restaurants of Penmaenmawr's restored village centre or the wide sandy beach ideal for walking, bathing, sailing or fishing or explore Snowdonia national park and quickly find yourself in the stunning wilderness of the Carneddau mountain range (much quieter than the Snowdon area). It is possible to walk over the mountains to the beautiful harbour town of Conway in just over two hours or even along the beach when the tide is out. The less energetic can drive in ten minutes or take the bus or do what I do which is walk there and take the bus back to Penmaenmawr after enjoying Conwy's fabulous pubs and restaurants. In fact because of Penmaenmawr's coastal location on the main train and bus route along the North Wales coast you could enjoy a holiday here without the need of a car! Great train links from Manchester, Chester and Liverpool to Llandudno Junction and to Pen itself (a request stop!).
If you wish to travel further afield Penmaenmawr is an ideal base from which to explore North Wales. I like to think of Anglesey as my front garden and Snowdonia as my back garden. In little more than half an hour you can drive to Anglesey, or the heart of Snowdonia (Betws y Coed or Llanberis) or be enjoying the shopping in genteel Llandudno. Driving an hour or more will see you on the magical Llyn Peninsular or Southern Snowdonia around Dolgellau or Port Merion. The range of attractions that this whole area offers is without compare in England and Wales. Think of all the benefits of Cornwall and the Lake District combined without the hassle of getting to Scotland (unless of course you live there!) and you have an idea of what the whole of North Wales has to offer.
This list is by no means exhaustive. Fishing Sailing Walking Climbing Rambling Rafting Kayaking Surfing Canyoning Coasteering Paracending Paragliding Parasurfing Windsurfing Power Boating Fell Running (madness) Mountain Biking Caravanning Camping Free Camping. Anyway I'm sure anyone looking for a place to stay in North Wales is aware of all this.
Oh yes Golf! There are some great links courses along the coast - Conway being the nearest. Penmaenmawr has an excellent half course however (certainly less than half an hour walk) and the whole area is rather underrated according to a group of American Golf tourists who I met in Conway last year (I'm not a golfer tho I do have an old set of clubs if you wish to borrow them). Much cheaper than Lancashire or Scotland with comparable courses they said.
I have just listed the Tower as a holiday let and need to take some more up to date pictures next week. Our first availability is Christmas/New Year as we can't prepare the place before then. After that we'll set up prices and so forth for 2014. Please email me through the holiday lettings site if you require any further information.
