  • "A very comfortable and cosy basement apartment situated in the beautiful town of Penmaenmawr."

    The term 'basement' whilst technically located on the 'basement' floor is somewhat of a misnomer for this type of apartment, as it offers surprisingly high ceilings and the living space is very generous. Irene's attention to detail and decorating style is remarkable! The kitchen is very well-equipped, she truly has left no stone unturned, you would be hard pressed to find a host who thinks about things so meticulously. Pricing is competitive and although situated next to some building works, we did not feel it detracted from our stay. It was always a pleasure staying at Llys Madoc. The seaviews from the other flats within this beautiful building are phenomenal!

  • "The top floor flat is up about 35 stairs which is fine if you are fit and able."

    A lovely clean flat with a great welcome pack on arrival. The views out to sea and puffin island whilst supping a glass of wine is so relaxing, and refreshment places are available. A very pleasant property to explore North Wales.

  • "This is not a complaint but to save water/money."

    Just to let you know, the toilet flush sticks and water keeps running and the plug in the sink doesn't hold the water, so when having a shave you have to keep topping the water up.

  • "The lovely views from the flat, and the quietness of the area which allowed us to really chill out."

  • "We had a lovely 3 day stay the apartment was spotless was like home from home."

    The only point l would like to make that there were 3 flights of stairs to flat 2 and not suitable with anyone who has mobility issues. The lounge and kitchen had beautiful see views and l would recommend it to fit clients..

  • "The owners were very helpful."

    The view from the lounge was fantastic, the weather was pretty good and we were able to clearly see the Isle of Man every day.. Loved the spacious lounge and a bedroom with 2 armchairs (such a luxury these days) We never used our car as property was 6 minutes from railway station and buses every 15 minutes to Bangor and Llandudno. We would thoroughly recommend this property.

  • "The apartment is well equipped and in a lovely location."

    The location is good to visit many places of interest in North Wales. These include some National Trust properties and ancient castles. There are also some good garden centres not far away with an excellent variety of plants. We would definitely have Llys Madoc down for another visit one day, as the sea views are terrific and the sunsets were lovely the week we were there. All in all a fabulous place for a holiday! Colin and Chris.

  • "Pleased with the Apartment very clean great Sea Views."

    We loved the seating area in the Bay window that overlooked the sea. Good area and very close to attractions and great scenery. Although there is Building work either side of the property and a busy road . We did not notice any noise and did not spoil our Holiday. The owner was very helpful and we had a great Holiday.

The property

Perched just outside the centre of the village of Penmaenmawr, The Top Flat is a charming second-floor apartment ideally suited to a couple seeking to explore the North Wales coast.

Within reach of the Snowdonia National Park too, the wonderfully located The Top Flat is close to local amenities as well as the popular locations of Conwy and Bangor.

The living room/diner enjoys an abundance of light from the window as well as offering amazing views across the bay to Puffin Island, Anglesey and the Great Orme in Llandudno; make yourself at home in here on the large sofa and delight in watching a sunset before flicking on the TV to watch your favourite show.

Prepare a delicious meal for two in the well-equipped kitchen to be served at the large dining table, with a host of appliances at your fingertips including an electric oven, gas hob, microwave and fridge, along with a handy washing machine, perfect for washing any wet clothes from outdoor adventures.

Indulge in the excellent treats in the welcome tray offering a selection of teas, coffees, water, chocolate and biscuits for you to enjoy on arrival after your journey, a pleasant and thoughtful touch.

Retire to the king-size bed in the elegant bedroom, with flourishes of warm yellow amidst the bright, neutral decor, it's a tranquil space to wind down in, served by the neat shower room where you can prepare for your day.

The village of Penmaenmawr presents all you need for a self-catered stay, with local pubs and shops as well as the train station being a short walk away and easy access onto the North Wales Expressway.

Begin your adventures in the Snowdonia National Park and head to Aber Falls, an amazing natural attraction of a beautiful waterfall, reached via a scenic walk through meadows and woodland, it makes a great day out.

A thrilling day can be enjoyed at Zip World Penrhyn Quarry, home to a 5000 ft-high zip-line taking you on a mile-long ride through the air at speed as you take in the panoramic views of the area, it's a breath-taking experience not to be missed!

Pop over to Conwy to explore the historic town, with Conwy Castle earning the status of World Heritage Site, it's a magnificent example of 13th century architecture and is wonderfully preserved.

Step inside the 'Smallest House In Great Britain' by Conwy's harbour, before grabbing some fish and chips to eat as you watch the boats come and go.

The beach at Penmaenmawr is made up of a mix of sand and shingle and is an easy walk away from the apartment, with kayaking, canoeing and windsurfing popular here.

As well as the city of Bangor, the seaside resort of Llandudno and plenty more stunning scenery down the Conwy valley, The Top Flat makes a perfect base for a couple's adventure to North Wales.

About the location


Conwy 5 miles.

Nestled on the North Wales coast between Llanfairfechan and Conwy, Penmaenmawr is an old quarrying town now adapted into a delightful community stretching along this stunning coastline, yet retaining much of its Victorian architecture, with many local pubs, restaurants and shops, a superb golf course and golden, sandy beaches. Set on the side of the Tal-Y-Fan mountain, many parts of Penmaenmawr and its sister village Dwygyfylchi enjoy stunning views across Conwy Bay to Llandudno, Puffin Island, Anglesey and the Irish Sea, and if you are lucky, dolphins and seals can sometimes been see playing in the bay. A recently opened cycle path leads along the coastal path to Conwy Marina to the East, and Llanfairfechan to the west. Or, head up the Conwy valley through the Sychnant Pass on to the mountain trails that abound there. The sailing club in Penmaenmawr is well established and welcomes day guests, as does the 9 hole golf course, set amongst stunning coastal scenery on the lower slopes of the village. On the promenade you will find numerous activities such as a skate park, a children's paddling pool as well as a beach cafe which is open most of the year. There are also beach huts on the promemade that you can hire by the day. Also near to the beach is a bowling green and all weather tennis courts.
