Description

This property is set in the historic town of Beaumaris on the Menai Strait - with its medieval castle dating back to the reign of Edward I, and its Victorian pier, gaol and courthouse. Situated amongst a row of properties, Kings House was built in the 18th century about 1720. It did not however become the Inn until 1829, and has not functioned in that capacity for over 100 years. Deceptive in size from the front, the property offers spacious holiday accommodation, with six large bedrooms and plenty of living space. The good-sized courtyard to the rear of the property is opened onto from the conservatory and snug.
There is plenty to do in the area, with sailing being a very popular pastime. For golfing enthusiasts, there are two good golf courses to play on, and with several restaurants and pubs in the area, visitors will be spoilt for choice when it comes to eating out. Horse riding can also be found locally. There are also the many beaches in the area - Beaumaris has its own small beach, but not too far away is Red Wharf Bay which has a large sandy beach. There are also many other beaches on the island - Rhosneigr and Trearddur Bay to name just two. The nearest beach is just 1 minute’s walk from the property. Discover the island’s varied coastline, which is perfect for watersports, leisure centres and Sea Zoo.
For those who reluctantly wish to leave the beauty of Anglesey, North Wales offers unrivalled beauty in the form of the Snowdonia National Park. Historic castles await exploration and there are many excellent walks to suit all levels. Llandudno makes for an enjoyable day out, as does a trip on the Ffestiniog Railway. Day trips are available to Ireland from Holyhead port. Shops 200 yards, pub 20 yards.

About the local area

The Isle of Anglesey (Ynys Môn in Welsh) is situated off the north-west coast of Wales near the beautiful Snowdonia mountain range. It is separated from the mainland by the Menai Strait, which is spanned by two picturesque bridges, the Menai Bridge and the Britannia Bridge.

Anglesey abounds with areas where interesting birds, plants and other wildlife can be seen and enjoyed. Being an island it has over 100 miles of coastline with varied habitats, such as sea cliffs, dunes and beaches, salt marshes and mud flats. These provide homes for a wide variety of animals and also harbour a varied flora. Inland much of the island is low lying agricultural land. Numerous areas are flooded and marshy, providing a whole other set of plants and animals. Tourist will love the unspoilt beaches and extensive sands, and the popular seafront of Benllech offers miles of clean golden sands, safe bathing, boating, fishing and windsurfing activities.

The Llyn, or Lleyn as the English often spell it, is sometimes known as the edge of Wales and if you like walking on the edge you will love the Llyn peninsula with it's wide variety of activities. It boasts some of the best sailing and surfing in North Wales and its capital Pwllheli has an impressive marina which berths over 400 boats. But if your preference is a quiet seaside holiday then fear not as the Llyn offers a great range of places to visit, from historic sites, peaceful harbour villages, fantastic countryside and beautiful beaches.
