Description

Occupying a unique position, just yards from the beach, and enjoying magnificent views across to the isle of Anglesey and Puffin Island, The Towers is a substantial detached property on a grand scale of over 5000 square feet. Built in a Gothic chateau style in 1872, it is steeped in history and was built as the grand harbour masters mansion for a harbour that was never in fact completed!
It boasts flexible and spacious accommodation, perfect for large gatherings of friends and family. The living room is stunningly presented with a unique and beautiful hand painted domed ceiling and a beautiful open fireplace which completes the cosy and period ambiance. The dining room has seating for 20 guests, and there is also a separate drawing room and library along with 10 spacious bedrooms. The lawned garden to the property has an attractive ornamental pond with a Japanese three-tier fountain surrounded by a 9-hole putting green and croquet lawn. The driveway extends to the rear of the property where there is a further garden area and small orchard and parking for up to 10 cars.
The walled town of Conwy lies close by between Llandudno and Bangor, and with the West Coast train line passing through both towns. Conwy is home to an elegant 13th-century castle, built by Edward I, as well as other buildings of note - such as the National Trust owned 14th-century timber and stone Aberconwy House, the splendid Plas Mawr and what is reputed to be the smallest house in Britain.
As well as being the major shopping town for the area, Llandudno is also home to Venue Cymru Theatre, which has a range of touring productions. The town also has two beaches and the famous views from the top of the Great Orme, 679ft, jutting out into the Irish Sea, which can be explored by tramway, cable car or on foot.
In the other direction is Ynys Môn, the Isle of Anglesey, with its 125 miles of coastline, with fantastic beaches and rocky coves. For walkers, there are plenty of routes to explore - including The Cambrian Way which begins in Conwy, and winds its 274 miles to Cardiff, passing through some of Wales’ most wonderful upland scenery, and taking in the Carneddau, the Glyders, the Snowdon Massif, Cadair Idris and the Brecon Beacons.
Bodnant Garden is a further attraction in the area for visitors, providing displays of rhododendrons and laburnum in May/June and other colour throughout the year. Within easy reach is both the Zip World Velocity and Surf Snowdonia, two of the area’s newest visitor attractions - Zip World being the longest and fastest zip line in the northern hemisphere and Surf Snowdonia the first inland man made surfing lagoon. Horse riding nearby. Ideal for golf. Station 100 yards. Shops and pub ½ mile.

About the local area

Llandudno is one of the largest and most popular of the Welsh seaside resorts, and still retains much of its Victorian character and charm. The golden sandy beach at North Shore is set in the magnificent crescent shaped bay, flanked by Great Ormes Head and Little Orme, with Llandudno and its elegant promenade lying protected between the headlands.

Llandudno offers its visitors good shopping, with a modern shopping arcade discreetly designed to blend with the traditional surroundings. The North Wales Theatre on the promenade is a new 1500 seat theatre, where West End shows and the Welsh National Opera perform. Throughout the area you can experience the local culture at eisteddfodau, festivals and concerts and hear the famous Welsh male voice choirs.

For sporting enthusiasts Llandudno offers a Leisure Centre, Ten Pin Bowling, Tennis, Dry Slope Skiing, Golf, and on and off shore Fishing. For something different there is American floodlit Harness Racing at Tir Prince Raceway.

Colwyn Bay, just along the coast is another popular destination. The long Promenade follows the vast sweep from Old Colwyn to Penrhyn Bay and gives easy access to the wonderful beaches, pier and harbour at Rhos-on-Sea all joined by a cycle track allowing exercise and fresh air to be taken together or you can stroll along the beautiful unspoilt promenade with its wide walkway, and enjoy some refreshments at the kiosks situated along the way. There are also separate slipways situated along the promenade for fishing, sailing, and jet skiing.

Both Colwyn Bay and Rhos-on-Sea have shopping areas and are close to the renowned Welsh Mountain Zoo, several golf courses and plenty of places to walk and climb. Snowdonia, the Isle of Anglesey, castles and National Trust properties are all close by. The area also boasts a leisure centre at Eirias, gardens, bowling greens, tennis courts, and an athletics stadium.

While exploring the North Coast you will come across the beautiful town of Conwy set on the Conwy River Estuary, dominated by the majesty of Conwy Castle. Fine views can be seen over the harbour and Snowdonia forms the backdrop to this medieval walled town. It is no surprise that today Conwy is designated as a World Heritage Site. The massive fifteen-foot thick walls guarded by twenty two towers stretch for three-quarters of a mile around the town, making Conwy one of the finest walled towns of the medieval period. Today visitors can still walk the Castle walls, enjoying views around the town and Harbour.
