THIS YEAR WE HAVE DECIDED TO ALLOW WELL BEHAVED PETS
Balmoral was built around 1870. Then a Grand Victorian Seaside Hotel which has had many visitors over the 140 years. Visitors came here to relax and enjoy the calming easy going welsh village life. In days gone by Balmoral guests would be announced in the local paper prior to their arrival.
The Balmoral Hotel staff would greet the holiday makers at the village railway station and transport them to the hotel. In one old poster we have seen it mentions “wireless concerts are held in Balmoral's lounge at 8pm prompt”.
Minstrels would walk along the promenade in the hight of the summer season singing to the visitors who stayed in the hotels and guest houses. Doctors from London would recommend a stay in Llanfairfechan for the waters.
Sailing, golf, walking, climbing, birdwatching, cycling, fishing, and travel through Snowdonia continues to be as popular now as it did then.
In recent years we decided to purchase the apartment and bring it back to its former glory with a view to once again enable visitors to enjoy the quiet life here in Llanfairfechan as they did in times gone by.
We have tried to make visitors a home from home bringing the apartment up to date with satellite television and Wi-Fi access.
Llanfairfechan or The Little Church of Mary, the English interpretation of the name grew out of the industrial revolution. The mountain behind Balmoral provided the granite for the cobble stones for the streets of Manchester and Leeds. The northern industrial towns would build cotton mills and change the life of millions from a rural to an urban way of life.
Llanfairfechan is ideally placed for touring North Wales. We are at the gateway to the Snowdonia National Park. Our coastal location is 9 miles from Bangor and 9 miles to Llandudno. We overlook the Irish Sea the Isle of Anglesey the Great Orme and directly in front of us Puffin Island or Ynys Seriol and Penmon light house.
Llanfairfechan has a number of good shops for basic supplies, a bank with an ATM, three public houses, a golf and sailing club. There are also a number of cafes in the village. We have recently purchased golf clubs and mountain bikes including a tandem for our visitors to use. Please be aware these are used at your own risk.
