  • "Fabulous place to stay."

    The owners have done a fantastic job of creating a comfortable, modern holiday home without losing the little features that give Melbecks its character. Position is superb – in the hills behind Abergele – with attractions such as Conwy and the beaches a short drive away. Surrounding quiet lanes are great for cycling and there's a great pub/restaurant about a mile down the road. Owners Jane and Rik are great hosts and left a lovely selection of local goodies to greet us. We're already looking forward to returning sometime soon.

    Thank you so much for this positive feedback. We look forward to welcoming you back to Melbecks before too long. Property Owner

  • "When we were looking for somewhere to stay for a weekend break at short notice, we were left little choice."

    But I'm glad that out of the properties we viewed, we chose Melbecks. As soon as we opened the gate to the property you feel the properties charm, as it has been lovely updated with all the necessities of life today, while keeping the houses original look and feel. The property smelled fresh, clean and had everything we needed when we arrived, and my family have only compliments about the property and our stay.

    We are so pleased you had a lovely break and enjoyed Melbecks charm. Property Owner

The property

Abergele 1.6 miles.

Set just outside the seaside town of Abergele, close to the fabulous North Wales coastline, sits this superbly built, wooden house, Melbecks.

Retaining plenty of heritage and tradition, with glimpsing sea views and a decked area, Melbecks is a wonderful place to call home for a family of five looking to explore this part of North Wales.

After parking up in the garage, follow the path to the rear stable door that leads into the kitchen, boasting a real cottage feel with a range of appliances, sure to entice some home-cooking.

A few steps up lead to the dining area, where you can enjoy leisurely meals together, whilst the spacious lounge is perfect for kicking back beside the woodburning stove and gazing through the bay window at the sea views.

Head out to the decked area for a better view, complete with furniture set so you can enjoy alfresco dining on a warm evening.

Escape to the snug for a quiet read before finding the first bedroom on the ground-floor, offering a sumptuous king-size bed, with an additional king-size, ideal for another couple on the first floor.

Start the day with a wash in the contemporary bathroom, offering choice of bath or shower over, before heading into Abergele and sampling the delights on offer.

The town centre is characterised by a mix of old and new; browse independent shops, boutiques and local markets, sample Welsh cuisine and experience the hospitality of the locals in traditional pubs, and explore the imposing Gwrych Castle, sitting atop a hill overlooking the town.

Remember your seaside essentials as Abergele boasts a sandy beach, ideal for leisurely walks, sunbathing and sandcastle building.

Head to the historic town of Conwy and explore its medieval castle and well-preserved calls, or pick up the pace with a visit to Llandudno, a thriving seaside resort with a Victorian pier and number of attractions.

Melbecks provides a wonderful base for exploring this popular North Wales location.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £450.
