  • "The house is very clean and the beds and sofas very comfortable."

    It was well stocked for 8 people with left overs. The children adored the attic with reading nook and disappeared up there whenever we came in. We were lucky for weather in February and walked to Angel Bay to see the seals then went to Llandudno to toboggan down the Great Orme. We would mention that we felt the lack of coffee tables but we moved the benches. Unfortunately the heating was set to go to 16 between 10.00 and 5.30 but we didn’t know this so after a short outing the house was really chilly and took a long time to heat up. The owners increased the ‘off’ temperature to 18 but we two oldies really felt cold until all the family arrived.

  • "We enjoyed our stay very much."

    Everything was provided, even to many different ways of making coffee, and our grandson much enjoyed his own room at the top of the unusual stairs. The very helpful briefing notes were also much appreciated.

  • "We loved our stay at Tan-y-Fron."

    The house lacked for nothing. We had our friends over for dinner a few times (11 of us in total) and we were able to provide enough crockery etc for everyone. The children were able to bake too- there was a lovely recipe on the wall for blueberry muffins- I highly recommend it- they were delicious. The location was great; we were close to great beaches, attractions & shops. The house is well decorated and very comfortable. The garden is safe and very dog friendly. As a family, we loved it.

  • "A beautiful, well presented, clean, comfortable holiday home."

    Perfectly located for local amenities and attractions. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend. We enjoyed the local Chinese takeaway and used the co op. Also we were able to walk the dog to ‘Princes Green’ a local park and took him on walks to Angel bay. We found a beautiful beach in Penhryn bay were he was able to go and run free. The weather was amazing so sat out in the back garden. The home provided us with everything we needed. It has been beautifully renovated to a very high standard.

  • "We could not have been more delighted with this property."

    It had everything we needed and was spotlessly clean. We've not stayed in that exact area of North Wales before, but found that it was perfectly placed for all of places that we liked to visit in Colwyn Bay, Llandudno, Conwy etc. It’s also only a few minutes from the Little Orme so we popped up a few times to see the seals on Angel Bay in the evenings. We would certainly choose this property if it was available next time we want to visit the area.

The property

Tan y Fron sits within the quiet coastal town of Penrhyn Bay, Conwy and offers the ideal base for a family holiday exploring North Wales.

Ample off-road car parking is provided to the front of the property with easy access to the main entrance.

Enter into the property via a porch where there is a decorative stained-glass window and space to store coats and shoes.

Step through to the heart of the property where there is an open-plan living area with kitchen, dining and sitting area, offering a great social hub for all guests to enjoy.

Bi-fold doors let in streams of light from the south facing garden where you can enjoy a morning coffee in the sitting area with a view over the patio whilst your four-legged friend relaxes next to you in the sunshine.

The modern fitted kitchen houses ample amenities where you can cook a fantastic meal for the family to enjoy at the dining table beside the original ornamental fireplace.

A separate lounge is located to the front of the house where you can sink into one of the comfy sofas in front of the feature fireplace surrounded by the characterful bay windows and traditional features such as the picture rails and vintage mirror.

This cosy lounge provides enough space for everyone to sit and enjoy a good film together or the ideal spot to catch up on some reading.

To the first floor there are three modern-fitted bedrooms.

The master bedroom has views across towards the Little Orme from the bay window and includes a king size bed with a contemporary ensuite with walk in shower.

The other first floor bedrooms offer a second king size bed and a zip and link bed with the option for this to be set us a super king upon request.

A beautifully presented family bathroom is also located on the first floor with a walk-in shower and roll top bath to relax in after a day of exploring.

Quirky ladder stairs lead to a fourth bedroom, nestled in the attic space with sloping ceilings and views across the roof tops towards Snowdonia.

This bedroom is set up as a twin and has a lovely tucked-away atmosphere, perfect for older children to enjoy games and the reading corner.

Penrhyn Bay offers plenty of amenities right on the doorstep, with the local supermarket, coffee shops, sandwich shop, takeaways, pharmacy and hairdressers all within walking distance.

Also a short walk from the property is the Little Orme and at the headland you can visit Angel Bay where you can view the local colony of sea lions that have taken up residence on the beach.

The headland overs fantastic views across towards Penrhyn Bay Beach and Rhos-on Sea and is a great place to walk the dog or enjoy a picnic on a sunny day.

Taking a walk along the Coastal Path towards the east you will pass Rhos-on-Sea Golf Course and carry on along the coast to reach the town of Rhos-on-Sea where there are numerous shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants.

The promenade and beach stretch all the way along the coast to Colwyn Bay where you can enjoy water sports at Porth Erias or have a bite to eat in the Michelin star restaurant.

Travelling further along the coast to the west brings you to the Victorian seaside town of Llandudno, offering a wide range of tourist attractions as well as ample facilities including shops, supermarkets and local tourist information facilities.

Enjoy a trip up the Great Orme on the tram or cable car or a visit to the Llandudno Snowsports Centre where you can go tobogganing or learn how to ski on the dry ski slope.

A walk along the pier lets you take in the sea breeze and enjoy the views of the bay and its long stretch of Victorian hotels.

The west shore offers more beaches as well as wildlife walks including the Conwy Estuary Trail which stretches alongside the river to the RSPB Nature Reserve in Conwy.

Hop over the river and enjoy a day exploring the historic walled town of Conwy with its 13th Century castle and wall top walk.

Here you’ll find amazing delis and bakeries as well as the famous smallest house in Great Britain.

Travel a little further inland to explore Snowdonia National Park.

For those feeling adventurous you can take a hike up to the summit of Snowdon, the tallest mountain in Wales or there are an abundance of extreme sports including riding the artificial wave at Surf Snowdonia, trampolining in caves, rope walk through the tree tops or zip line through a quarry.

Or take a more relaxed walk around the National Trust owned Bodnant Gardens which offers a different experience all year round.

This part of North Wales truly has something for everyone and Tan y Fron will provide you with the perfect base to explore from.

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

Just three miles away is the town of Llandudno, which lies between two headlands, the Great Orme and the Little Orme. The town offers two superb beaches, one with a wide promenade backed by an imposing crescent of Victorian hotels, and the other a quieter sandy beach that’s backed by sand dunes and has superb views towards Anglesey. Angel Bay is also a great attraction, where seals return each year. Take a ride on the Great Orme Tramway, peruse the selection of shops, pubs, restaurants and cafés or enjoy a performance at Venue Cymru. The nearby Llandudno Junction is great for families as it boasts its own cinema and family restaurants. Close by is the historic town of Conwy where you can marvel at its impressive castle before immersing yourself in the past at Plas Mawr or roaming the town walls.
