  • "This is a lovely house."

    Bedrooms and lounges all look newly decorated. The kitchen is a little dated (but perfectly acceptable) but I understand from Jason, the owner, that this is to be completely overhauled shortly. The hot-tub was a nice touch which was very well received by our group. The house is nicely positioned about 5 minutes from the beach and, for those who don't want to drive everywhere there is a terrific bus service along the coast between Bangor and Llandudno which runs every 20 minutes or so. We would happily stay here again and can recommend it to anyone looking for a large holiday home in this area.

  • "Wow, what a property!"

    My husband and I booked Penholm for a joint big birthday celebration with family and friends. There were 19 people in our group with an age range of 16 months to 71. There was something to do and somewhere to go for everyone. The rooms were spotless and the welcome pack and flowers that were left in the kitchen table were a lovely surprise. Stunning property with stunning views! Emma, the supervisor was only a quick text away if we needed to contact her. What a memorable time we had and we all absolutely loved it. Penholm, you svore 10/10!

  • "We recently held our wedding at Penholm House with our nearest and dearest and it was perfect from start to finish."

    We held the ceremony on the roof terrace with views of the mountains and sea. It really is the most stunning property, the themed bedrooms were amazing and were to be our wet weather photography backdrops but the sun came out for us on the day & stayed for the week! We had photographs in & around the house & garden as well as at the Sychnant Pass and on the beach, the local area is beautiful. Our family & friends had a perfect week with us, there is something for everyone at Penholm, the cinema and games room were a real plus. Jason the owner was very helpful beforehand, sending us extra photos to help with planning and he also recommended an amazing local caterer. We will definitely back to celebrate future anniversaries in what has become one of our favourite places. Highly recommended.

    We all had a wonderful holiday. The hosts pay huge attention to detail to ensure your time is well spent. There is plenty to do 24/7whatever the weather. (As an aside note for future guests Tesco and Asda deliver to the property, but I would recommend you currently don’t use Tesco. They didn’t turn up when supposed to on Saturday evening. With no communication from them either, order eventually turned up following afternoon with half of order missing). I wholeheartedly recommend this property in 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.
