  • "As the old quote says "the pictures do not do justice!"

    " As you enter the house you get a wonderful WOW factor and immediately feel at home. The house is really well equipped and the décor is so very homely. We had a fantastic stay, in one of our favourite places and the house just made it better, exploring Conwy and just sitting out in front of the house enjoying the weather.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at Moss Bank."

    It worked very well for us as 2 couples with plenty space to relax & enjoy each other’s company. The house is a nice “Laura Ashley” style & to have the log burner lit in the evening was a nice bonus. We were really sad to leave as we had such a lovely time & besides enjoying the property we had found lots of places quite nearby to explore with our little dog…Would love to come back again. Margaret & Ron Moss Bank is a fabulous property, extremely spacious, clean and well equipped with all you could possibly need. Super comfy beds and lovely outdoor space, within easy walking distance of Conwy town and just a short drive to the beach. Conveniently located to visit so many beautiful places in both North Wales and Anglesey. Would highly recommend. Jane & Phil

  • "Lovely property, exceptionally clean and tidy."

    One of the nicest properties I have stayed in. Well equipped kitchen and comfortable seating. Log burner was a nice touch on a cool evening. We did have nice weather for March. Easy to walk into Conwy, to visit the castle, shops and the harbour, a short drive to various beaches and attractions. Parking was easy in the dedicated space, just behind the property. I would love to stay again, as I enjoyed the comfort and ambience of the property.

  • "Really well maintained and equipped."

    Great area to be in with lots to do. We had a very comfortable Xmas in this very cosy home and the owner was extremely helpful, even promptly sending me some clothing back that I had left behind. The mussels from the fisherman on the harbour quay were delicious.

    It was a nice touch when the owners called to see if we had settled in. The cottage is lovely inside and very cosy. It's got a great location. 2nd time at this property will definitely come back again.

  • "This is a wonderful property."

    So much space and incredibly well presented. Lovely and warm with comfy beds. Only a 10 minute walk and you are in the centre of the town. Amazing views of the castle from the bedroom windows. I would love to stay here again if we ever return to Conwy.

  • "The property is well equipped and ideally located for a short walk into Conwy town centre."

    There are plenty of places to eat in the evening with good variety. It is nice to walk along both sides of the estuary. Llandudno is very close and has plenty of things to do such as exploring the pier, walking along the promenade, shops and the Great Orme. There is also a very good bike hire shop. For the more adventurous try Zip World or walk up Snowdon. Angelsey is a nice Island with some great views at South Stack and Beaumaris is a quaint seaside town to explore.

  • "It would have been very useful to have a tumble dryer on the premise as hard to get clothes and towels dry especially when the weather was wet but warm enough not to have the heating on."

    Very nice caretaker who contacted us after arrival to check all was ok and kept us updated with any ongoing issues. Great location.

  • "There is a shortage of space for clothes and the shower was not as clean as it could be and the house had not been hoovered as thoroughly as it could be."

    There were a lot of dog hairs around. It was a lovely house though and we enjoyed our stay.

    Very comfortable. Very clean. Everything you need is in the property. They supply all that you need. For the kitchen. And utilities. Bin bags, dishwasher and washing machine tablets. Even a spice drawer and basics for cooking. Plenty of crockery etc. The outside gardens and patio are beautiful. View great. Dog friendly. A note if you have a tiny dog. Not sure if they might be able squeeze out of front gate. We had taken a doggie gate. So we utilized that. Cottage brilliantly situated in Conwy. Some lovely restaurants. The Erskine The Secret Garden behind the wine shop and The mulberry especially. Thank you for a lovely stay at your cottage

The property

A beautiful Victorian terraced property, Moss Bank House is found just outside Conwy's UNESCO World Heritage Site which includes Conwy's Castle and town walls built by Edward 1 between 1283-1287.

The property is in a slightly elevated position and provides a view of the castle through the trees below.

It's a perfect spot from which to enjoy the many charms of this wonderful and historic small town and is in easy driving distance of the mountains of Snowdonia, the beautiful coastline and beaches of North Wales and Anglesey, and the natural beauty of the Conwy Valley.

Moss Bank House has been sympathetically restored and retains original features whilst adding contemporary notes to provide the comforts of modern living.

Arranged over two floors, Moss Bank House offers spacious and well-appointed holiday accommodation throughout.

This lovely property will truly delight the whole family.

The beautiful sitting room with woodburning stove, smart TV, and comfortable seating is a wonderful room in which to relax.

The well-equipped kitchen has an AGA (on in the winter months), an electric oven, gas hob, hardwood and granite worktops, a Belfast sink, a dishwasher, and a fridge/freezer.

The dining room is directly adjacent to the kitchen and the open plan arrangement is very convenient for a social family gathering.

There is also a utility room, with a washing machine, sink and folding drying rack.

Off the utility room there is a cloakroom with WC and basin.

Upstairs, there are four bedrooms: a king size double with en-suite shower, basin and WC; a further king size double with en-suite shower and basin; a regular sized double; and a twin room.

The family bathroom has a free-standing role top bath to relax in.

All bedding and towels are provided.

The front of Moss Bank House enjoys a sunny aspect during the day, with a view of Conwy castle across the well-maintained garden and through the trees.

The terrace has two sets of comfortable tables and chairs which are perfect for relaxing and dining alfresco.

There is also a small, terraced garden to the rear.

Conwy has many independent shops so, once you have explored the Castle's ramparts and walked the three-quarters of a mile of town walls, you could pop down into the town's narrow streets and discover some great little shops and numerous places to eat and drink.

The historic quayside offers a charming vista, across the many boats moored on the River Conwy, towards Deganwy and its popular marina.

Whilst on the quayside many visitors take the opportunity to take a peek inside the Smallest House in Great Britain; at just 122 inches tall the tour doesn't take long!

A little further afield and a rewarding drive by car further delights await such as: the highly acclaimed Bodnant Gardens run by the National Trust; more spectacular castles at Harlech, Caernarfon and Beaumaris; the elegant promenade at the Victorian seaside resort of LLandudno; the tramway or cable car up to the summit of the Great Orme; the grandeur of the mountains and lakes in the Snowdonia National Park; the beautiful coastline and beaches on the Isle of Anglesey and the Llyn Peninsula; invigorating mountain, hill or coastal walks; the many and varied action activities provided by Zip World, Adventure Snowdonia and others; the waterfalls at Swallow Falls and Aber falls; rib rides along the Menai Straits etc.

Whatever you decide, Moss Bank House is sure to delight and make a superb base for any season you choose to visit.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £400.

About the location

CONWY

Llandudno 5 miles; Betws-y-Coed 16 miles.

Conwy, a World Heritage Site, is without doubt world famous for its historical and architectural heritage, yet at the heart of the town lies a hub of bustling activity. Alongside its ancient festivals and fairs, musical recitals, galleries and historical attractions, there is an array of specialist shops, restaurants and hotels. Built for King Edward I between 1283 and 1287, Master James of St George's design, Conwy Castle remains one of the most outstanding achievements of medieval military architecture. The distinctive, elongated shape, with its two barbicans, eight massive towers and a great bow-shaped hall was perhaps determined by the narrow rocky outcrop on which the castle stands. The town is proud of its historic traditions and celebrates its past by retaining many of these in its annual festivals, events and fairs, including the Honey fair, Seed fair and Gwledd Conwy Feast in October, along with other musical events throughout the year. Conwy is the perfect base for exploring the dramatic Snowdonia National Park, walking unspoilt sandy beaches, or taking in the wonderful scenery on your doorstep. Also within reach are the Llechwedd Slate Caverns, which has the longest zip wire in Europe, and Surf Snowdonia is just six miles away.
