Description

Dating back to the 16th century, Bach y Graig is a superb Grade II listed farmhouse which offers spacious and comfortable accommodation which oozes charm and character. Situated on a working dairy farm with the discreet owner living next door, the property has been adapted to provide all the modern comforts one expects from a holiday home, it has retained so many of its period features including slate floors, wooden panelling, beams and an inglenook fireplace complete with the original bread oven and cauldron.
Built in 1567 by Sir Richard Clough of Denbigh, who became rich as a merchant in Antwerp, Bach y Graig was the first building in Wales to be built of brick and its architectural style owes much to Sir Richard’s Dutch associations. His wife Katheryn of Berain, known as the ’Mother of Wales’, was second cousin to Queen Elizabeth. In 1817 the main hall was demolished, leaving the large impressive gatehouse and farm buildings which still stand today. It is the gatehouse which is now the main farmhouse.
To the front of the farmhouse is a large lawned garden with swings for the children and outdoor seating, which is perfect for al fresco dining. Located at the end of a long private driveway, this impressive property is set in 200 acres of fertile farmland which includes a trail through 40 acres of woodland where Edward, the Black Prince once hunted. The property also has private fishing rights on the River Clwyd nearby. Situated within the Vale of Clwyd, which is home to the Offas Dyke path, there are lots of great walks in the area. The mountains of the Clwydian Range, which are a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, can be enjoyed on foot, by cycle or even on horseback.

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.
