The property

This mid-terrace stone-fronted cottage is situated in the idyllic country village of Glanwydden mid-way between the coast and the scenic countryside of North Wales.

Being situated only three miles from Llandudno, this cosy cottage offers families and couples a perfect retreat within easy reach of both the coast and historic castles and gardens of the area.

Two steps lead past the small front patio area to the front door and into the sitting room.

This comfortable room has a warming open fire set in a wonderful slate hearth, perfect to relax in front of after a busy day of exploring.

One step leads into the well-equipped kitchen with dining area.

The kitchen is beautifully appointed with beech block worktops and with a Smeg fridge/freezer and range cooker, the chef amongst the party will delight in rustling up some tasty treats, to be enjoyed at the dining table.

Stairs lead up to two well-appointed bedrooms with character arch windows and doorways.

There is a lovely double bedroom and the cosy twin room with countryside views which has the additional flexibility of zip/link beds which means that it can become a king-size double on request.

Both bedrooms share a modern bathroom.

Outside a short pathway leads to a further garden area with furniture where you can sit with a morning coffee as you plan the day ahead.

A stone's throw away is the Queens Head pub and restaurant which is well-known for its excellent food and atmosphere.

There are plenty of walking opportunities from the door, as well as National Cycle Route 5 to enjoy.

The popular Victorian seaside town of Llandudno is a short drive away, where you can stroll along the promenade of the North Shore or visit the quieter West Shore with its glorious views towards Anglesey.

The splendid Conwy Castle is well worth a visit and the town makes for an enjoyable day out as you wander around this walled town.

For the more energetic take a trip to Snowdonia National Park where you can enjoy a vast array of walks and cycling opportunities.

At the end of a busy day return to this excellent cottage for some peace and relaxation.

About the location

GLANWYDDEN

Llandudno 3 miles; Conwy 4 miles.

Glanwydden is an idyllic country village, which lies between the beautiful coastline and scenic countryside of North Wales. This tranquil village could be described as the ultimate retreat, perfect for exploring the dramatic scenery, walking the unspoilt sandy beaches or visiting the historic castles, churches and gardens of the area. The village was visited in 1824 by Charles Darwin and he called it the Butterfly Valley for its abundant insects and wildflowers. Across a field with a footpath from the heart of the village is Bryn Pydew Nature Reserve, a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) with at least 22 species of butterflies and fireflies recorded flitting amongst the limestone loving wildflowers. There are many gentle and more demanding walks along the valley through the Ancient Woodland that has remained unchanged for hundreds of years. Just 3 miles away is the famous Victorian seaside resort of Llandudno, which offers two superb beaches, excellent shops, pubs and restaurants, the Venue Cymru theatre, a popular dry-ski slope and wonderful views from the summit of the 679' high Great Orme, reached by either the Great Orme Tramway or an exciting cable car ride of over a mile. The town of Conwy - a designated World Heritage Site - is also nearby. A true medieval gem, Conwy is dominated by a splendid castle and completely enclosed by its well-preserved town walls and is known for its unique independent shops. Discover miles of sandy beaches along the North Wales coast and excellent walking in the Snowdonia National Park just 20 minutes' drive away. Fantastic golfing opportunities are available within 15 minutes drive at Maesdu Golf Course, North Wales Golf Course in Llandudno, a championship course at Conwy and Rhos-on-Sea. With good fishing and bird watching opportunities nearby there is plenty to see and do all year round. For the more adventurous visit Surf Snowdonia, Zip World and Bounce Below which are all fantastic facilities within easy reach.
