    The area is excellent so close to some lovely places. We used the train a couple of times, the station is just a ten minute walk away which was very handy. We had a a really nice holiday and would stay here again and will definitely recommend it to our friends and family

    We only had the television on for an hour the whole time we were there because of this! Wonderful shower, everything you needed in the kitchen, and toiletries like shower gel, shampoo etc provided too. Lovely friendly owner, nice welcome pack, near to shops and eateries in the town, and just a 10min walk to the beach... just a great place to spend a week's holiday... thank you, Marie

    The views are amazing and there is everything there that you need to have a comfortable stay. One of the most relaxing holiday we have had in a long time, just what we needed.

  • "Was central to get about from."

    Would benefit from updating but everything worked and was clean and I thought reasonable. The only criticism I would have (nothing to do with flat) was that the north of Wales appears to close down beginning of September. We struggled to find anywhere open to eat even driving out to Conway and further afield struggled to even get a coffee after 5pm and the village lacked facilities. 1 pub who stop serving very early a pizza place and that’s about it. No fish n chips all amenities on beach front closed. Would like to say a big thank you for the lovely tray of goodies left by owner. Would certainly go again now wiser but not in September

  • "Lovely property in a real gem of a place Penmaenmawr."

    Great location for views over to Great Orme and Anglesey/Puffin Island with amazing sunsets! Short walk down a steep hill to the beach and all the facilities there. Really well equipped flat with everything you need and a comfy bed and settee. As ever with holiday letts, there’s always something that irritates and with Llys Madoc it was the shower. We spoke to the owners about it and they said they'd sort it so next time we visit we should be giving it full marks!

  • "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!

    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.

    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 location is good to visit many places of interest in North Wales. These include some National Trust properties and ancient castles.

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.
