About the home
Castle Reach is a unique and characterful holiday home with lovely views of the Conwy estuary and Conwy Castle. Spacious and airy, this is the closest residential property to Conwy Castle. This 200-year old building has all the facilities for a memorable stay. Arranged over four floors, Castle Reach would be enjoyed by a couple just as much as a family of 4 or 6. Gas central heating and double glazing make it suitable for a holiday at any time of year. The large, well furnished rooms provide everything you could need for your holiday. All the amenities of Conwy are on the doorstep, with pubs, restaurants, shops and the Conwy quayside all just a very short walk away. Nearby are the castles and beaches of the North Wales Coast and Anglesey, walking in the Snowdonia National Park and several golf courses and theatres.

Further details indoors:
Gas central heating, double glazing, curtains with blackout linings and blackout blinds in the attic room, along with a well equipped kitchen, book, video and DVD collections, make Castle Reach a real 'home from home'.
The hallway provides space for coats, walking boots, buckets and spades. The washing machine is also in this area.
The kitchen/diner is equipped with gas hob, electric oven, microwave, dishwasher, fridge and separate freezer. All the cooking equipment you could need is provided, as is a radio/CD/cassette player. An iron and ironing board are also available. There is a dining table with four chairs and two foldaway stools. We have sat four adults and two children around the table, but it would be a tighter fit for six adults.
The spacious lounge has views towards the estuary. There is a fireplace for log fires on cooler evenings, as well as 40" flat screen TV with DVD/video player and a selection of DVDs, videos and books.
The main bathroom has a WC, basin and bath with shower over.
The large main bedroom also offers views over the estuary which can be seen while sitting in the king size (5ft) bed. There is a double wardrobe and chest of drawers as well as bedside cabinets with reading lamps, two easy chairs and a hairdryer. This room also has an en-suite shower room with WC.
The second bedroom faces the rear of the property on the same floor as the main bedroom and has twin (3ft) beds, chest of drawers with reading lamps, a single wardrobe and a hairdryer.
The attic space has been converted into a large third bedroom/play room with velux windows giving views over the estuary to the front and to the castle to the rear of the property. There are full-size (3ft) bunk beds and a chest of drawers.
To entertain any children, there is a small table tennis table, table football, mini pool table and bean bags for watching the TV with DVD/video player and a selection of children's DVDs, videos, books and games.
Further details outdoors:
The outside area consists of a small enclosed concrete yard with steps up to a small paved patio with cast iron table and 4 chairs. Outside light.
Towels are provided (one bath sheet and one hand towel per guest) up to four sets per booking. You will need to bring towels for any additional guests as well as beach towels.
From June 2011 we are by law required to include an Energy Performance Certificate in our sales literature. This information will be sent to anyone who emails us an enquiry.
10% discount on full week bookings for parties of two only (sharing either the double or twin room). Please contact us for short break rates. Minimum rate of £250, or £20 per person per night, whichever is greater. Please check for Christmas/New Year changeover days. Short breaks not available from Easter to end September.
A 30% deposit is taken at the time of booking. In addition, we require a £50 refundable 'keys and cleaning' deposit to be paid in the same cheque. This is repaid once the keys have been returned and the cleaner has confirmed the property was left in a reasonable condition. The balance is payable 6 weeks before you go. If the booking is made within 6 weeks of the holiday, the full amount plus refundable deposit is due immediately. Payment is by cheque unless you are overseas, in which case payment is by bank transfer, sterling banker's draft or PayPal (all bank and PayPal fees to be paid by the visitor). If you cancel your holiday, the sums paid are not refundable, unless we can relet the week by making it available on our usual websites, so you are advised to take out holiday insurance. If we can relet your holiday dates we will refund you in full less a £30 administration charge. We cannot usually process a booking with less than one week's notice.

My wife and I together with our ten year old daughter are regular visitors to Conwy and have stayed in several cottages within the town walls over the last ten years. These are always full of character but often lacking in space, especially where modern conveniences such as bathrooms and kitchens have had to be shoehorned in. For this visit, over Christmas 2012 we were to be accompanied by my wife's brother, his wife and their two year old son from the USA so we needed something larger, but we still wanted to be within the town walls. From the website Castle Reach seemed to fit the bill and was very reasonably priced when compared with other invariably more distant properties in the area, so we crossed our fingers and booked although I was fully expecting it to be a bit of a squeeze for six of us. On arrival we were surprised and delighted to find that behind the rather unremarkable front door was a very large, comfortable and well appointed property, well decorated and finished throughout. There was ample room for all of us, the children would happily have spent all week in the attic room with all its games, and having two bathrooms meant that each family had its "own" facilities, while the large well equipped kitchen enabled us to cook proper meals for all. Our trip was part of a larger family gathering in the area and at one point we had about a dozen visitors in the house as well as ourselves, who could all be entertained with room to spare.
Overall I would thoroughly recommend Castle Reach.

Excellent accommodation, easy to find, short walk to station, buses and car parking very close, good choice of shops all around. Lovely views over the estuary especially from main bedroom, and pleasant dining kitchen with views of castle walls. The whole area is worth exploring and easy to reach...Llandudno, Bangor, Caernarvon, Anglesey, and locally, the outstanding RSPB reserve with the best scenic backdrop I've come across.

My partner and I stayed at Castle Reach in october.I had never been to Conwy before but will certainly return as it is a beautiful town with plenty to see and do in the surrounding area. The house itself is smartly fitted out with all the modern conveniences and, although feeling very classy, is wonderfully homely. It felt like a home away from home into which my partner and I fitted straight into. We both found that anything we needed had been catered for. Its location too is very central for discovering Conwy.
Neither of us drive and yet we managed to fill our week effortlessly by exploring the view, discovering Conwy and its castle (which is literally round the corner from the house), the nearby RSPB reserve, and the amazing town of Llandudno and the Great Orme, which is a short bus ride away.
All in all I would thoroughly recommend Castle Reach and thank the owners again for a lovely week away.
